LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jan 8, 2013) - Audyssey, a leader in audio technology for the personal, automotive, mobile and theater markets, today announced that it has adapted its BassXT technology for use in factory-installed automobile sound systems. Audyssey BassXT is widely used by consumer electronics manufacturers to improve bass output in home audio products, and today's news marks an important move for Audyssey technologies in car audio.
Bass enthusiasts know it is difficult to enjoy rich bass from their car audio systems. Now, with a renewed emphasis on space-saving design and fuel efficiency, it is even more difficult. Audyssey BassXT delivers richer, deeper bass by maximizing the output of manufacturers' stock audio systems, providing a much better listening experience for automotive audiophiles.
"Manufacturers will go to great lengths to increase bass output in their cars. But large woofers and enclosures sacrifice cargo space and fuel efficiency to make bass more impactful," said Chris Kyriakakis, Audyssey's founder and CTO. "With Audyssey BassXT, we give car manufacturers a unique method to produce deeper bass from a smaller driver and cabinet."
Audyssey BassXT is an innovative approach to improving bass output. Most bass-enhancing technologies act as a simple "bass boost" that does nothing to extend bass deeper. Audyssey BassXT plays lower, deeper bass notes by increasing the movement of the driver based on the content.
By monitoring the incoming audio signal on the fly, BassXT can dynamically control the woofer's excursion. This results in bass performance that fully maximizes driver performance.
Using Audyssey BassXT means that smaller speakers in the car doors can match the performance of ones that use dedicated subwoofers. It also means that premium systems with dedicated subwoofers can produce deeper bass than traditional big box designs. This is very good news, especially for car manufacturers striving to meet the growing demand for compact, fuel-efficient cars.
Audyssey is actively licensing BassXT to automobile manufacturers worldwide. For more information, visit www.audyssey.com/audio-technology/bassxt or contact Audyssey directly at 213-625-4300.
