The Spyder features two frontal airbags and to side airbags for safety purposes. Two strong steel profiles, pre-loaded with springs, serve as an Automatic Rollover Support System.
Bang & Olufsen Sound System – including loudspeakers in the head restraints
As an alternative to the standard Audi sound system, a Bang & Olufsen system, in which a 550-watt amplifier controls 13 loudspeakers, is also available. The subwoofer is located in the front bulkhead near the right, front wheel housing. Clasps made from anodized aluminum fasten the bass woofers in the doors, and when it is dark they are illuminated with LED accent lighting. Two of the 13 speakers are fitted in each of the head restraints, both in the R8 sport seats and R8 bucket seats. The Symphoria algorithm, which Audi developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute, adds significant depth to the sound.
