A note about how we make all Audison amplifiers, the “All Channels Driven” design philosophy. To Mr Emidio Vagnoni, “the father of Audison”, all audio amplifiers needed to be able to make rated power on all channels simultaneously. Anything less was a compromise. Some amplifiers today purposely “throttle back” some channels compared to others, deciding which channels need to make their rated power based on how they are being used. Now, designing an amplifier with purpose-specific channels is one thing....

DSP stands for Digital Signal Processing, a very fast form of computation that can be used in many products. Radar detectors, cruise controls, and sound systems all use DSP  chips today.  Let’s talk for a moment about how DSP works in car audio.  Take the Take the great-sounding Audison Thesis speaker. Now, put it in a car. Wherever we install it in a car, it’s not a perfect speaker location. It might be in a door, or it might be in a...

Some have been overwhelmed with the number of improvements in Audison AF Forza and bit Drive software.  We’ve often heard “where do we start? There are three big areas where Forza moves the category forward: 1 Power. Audison Forza 5-channel amp is now 1000 total watts RMS – over 2X the power! 100×4 at 4Ω, 600×1 @ 2Ω, RMS. The new AF Compact 8-channel is almost double the power of the model it replaces. The other amplifiers have similar increases....

    No category has been more confusing, or more disappointing, to in-car audiophiles than “high-resolution Bluetooth receivers”. Different handsets and different digital media players often deliver different sound-quality results, and it can be difficult to predict those results before the installation. Now, with the Audison B-CON audiophile Bluetooth receiver, you can guarantee performance. Audison B-CON is the first (and the only, at the time of this writing) Bluetooth 5.0® player designed for automotive use that has obtained the “Hi-Res...

Audison has engineered a system of BMW custom fit speakers – a 200 mm shallow-frame under seat woofer, 100 mm midranges with 3-post aluminum cast frames, and Tetelon textile-dome tweeters. The midrange and coaxials are available in both 3-post frame sizes used by BMW and MINI. Connection is plug-and-play. The under-seat woofers are available in both 2Ω and 4Ω values, while the other speakers are 4Ω. The speakers can be used as replacements with OEM amplification, but the best results...

For various reasons, OEM speaker outputs often have a muting protection circuit. Many of us have encountered this sort of muting behavior in OEM systems. Here’s some information about how it works. When the head unit turns on, the outputs are muted. This used to happen when the driver got in the car and turned on the ignition key. Today, it happens earlier – often when the user unlocks the door. This supports the vehicle’s use of the audio system to...

With this article we will understand why Audison Virtuoso 3.0 MPC (Mobile Phase Correction) technology is so important to achieve the highest listening quality in the car cabin. Sound waves have amplitude and phase characteristics. Amplitude is how powerful the wave is. The higher the pressure peaks, the louder the sound is perceived to be. Phase describes the timing of the wave – when the pressure peaks are occurring. Humans can often hear if the phase of the sound wave...

Audison bit Tune is the auto-calibration system for bit One HD Virtuoso for the setup of basic parameters (time alignment, equalization, levels, etc.), ensuring a correct acoustic result in a very short time. The bit Tune automatic routine also includes the diagnosis of common connection “errors” (channels/phase inversion, no signal from a channel/cable, etc.), to set the specialist free from his “routine” work and allow him to focus on the art of “fine-tuning” while listening.   Audison_bit_Tune   Thanks to...
