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.
