Perfectly Integrated

Tweeter-on-Top

It’s the subtle nuances that make all the difference to audio within a sports car. The McLaren 540C’s audio system delivers spine-tingling detail and spaciousness thanks to tried and tested technologies, including Bowers & Wilkins Tweeter-on-Top technology. A Tweeter-on-Top centre speaker minimises acoustic reflection from the windscreen and removes cabinet coloration, resulting in a sound that’s more detailed and true to life.

Fine Tuning


Tuning an automotive speaker system is a fine art. One that requires expert ears, hours of listening, and in the case of the 540C, extensive collaboration between the engineers of McLaren and Bowers & Wilkins.

Advanced technologies


The 540C’s Bowers & Wilkins Audio System features drivers that use the same acoustic materials as our high-performance speakers, including aluminium tweeters, Kevlar® midrange units, and Rohacell® woofers.
