The reason for the multilayered sound (why F10 M5 sounds unlike most V8s) is due to the cross-bank manifold and exhaust layout.

As Clar concluded, turn off the Active Sound & with the windows/sunroof closed, you'll just hear a muted version of what you go with Active Sound.
I realize that, but since the sound is "amplified" by the stereo/speakers, what happens if a speaker is blown? Will the AS sound like garbage? It was more of a facetious question, but I'm still curious.

BMW: "Oh, you are outside of warranty and blew a speaker? Sorry that your engine now sounds like garbage."
