Selected Sound

Engine Sound at the flick of a switch.

Jens Dralle on the Volvo XC90 D5 by HEICO SPORTIV in Auto Motor Sport Spezial 2015
"The XC90 emits a deep, menacingly thunderous rumble, almost as if it were a US-V8."

General information about Selected Sound

Selected Sound® is HEICO SPORTIV’s answer to the automotive industry’s downsizing trend and is a technology specially developed by HEICO SPORTIV for a superior sound experience.

Selected Sound® combines with the optional HEICO SPORTIV’s e.motion® performance enhancement module to derive the formula of an efficient four-cylinder engine with the per-formance of six cylinders and voluminous sound of a hefty 8-cylinder engine. The principle behind Selected Sound® is as fascinating and it is simple: the HEICO SPORTIV e.motion® control unit passes driving characteristic-relevant CAN data such as speed, rpm, load status and accelerator position directly to a sound processor. The sound processor is, in turn, connected to a conventional HEICO SPORTIV stainless steel end muffler and an actuator which ultimately models the desired acoustic pattern.

HEICO SPORTIV’s development team invested a great deal of precision work in the sound file to generate an authentic sound. The result: Selected Sound® stimulates the senses and gen-erates the unique sound backdrop of a high-volume 8-cylinder engine. A tribute to the Volvo V8 engines of days gone by. In doing so, the driver can choose between the series-produced sound or pure V8 ecstasy, and enable / disable the system with the Start/Stop button or drive mode switch at any time. The intelligent HEICO SPORTIV e.motion® control unit auto-matically enables Selected Sound® as soon as the Volvo starts moving. The Selected Sound® exhaust can be combined either with the HEICO SPORTIV rear skirt and four end pipes or, alternatively, with the series-produced rear skirt.
