LOS ANGELES —Audyssey expanded
its presence in automotive sound systems
with the announcement that Volvo
used the company’s MultEQ acousticalcorrection
technology to calibrate the response
of the Volvo S60 sound system.
The technology, used in home audio
products and theaters, is already available
in Alpine aftermarket autosound
products, and it was used by Jaguar to
tune the response of the 2010 Jaguar XJ.
More OEM sound systems will use
MultEQ in the future, and other Audyssey
technologies might also appear in future
OEM sound systems, the company said.
In the Volvo, MultEQ was used to calibrate
the automaker’s most advanced
sound system, a 12-speaker Premium
Sound system. User controls aren’t
available in the Volvo or Jaguar.
