Los Angeles – Audyssey said Jaguar Cars will become the
first auto manufacturer to introduce a car tuned with Audyssey’s MultEQ XT
Volvo also announced
last year it will use MultEQ in its cars but has not yet announced a
specific car to incorporate the technology.
MultEQ is also used in millions of home theaters and in Alpine
aftermarket car sound processors. It adjusts a sound system to the particular
acoustics of a vehicle (or room). The
technology will be offered in a newly announced 2010 Jaguar XJ line of luxury
cars that have been designed and tuned using MultEQ XT technology.
“MultEQ is based on years of research to measure and remove the
key factors that cause acoustical distortion,” said Chris Kyriakakis,
Audyssey chief technical officer and founder. “Our algorithms are the
first in the industry to automatically adjust for the problems in the
acoustical environment, and now we are bringing that technology from the home
theater to cars.”
Audyssey said it will offer additional announcements this year
regarding expanding its technology beyond home theater.
uses information captured at multiple locations throughout the car cabin to
correct for both time and frequency response problems caused by speaker
placement and reflections. The soundstage is rendered as it is in the original
recording, it claimed.
