The audio system blends Visteon Corporation's (NYSE: VC) Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and sound management capability with Boston Acoustics' (Nasdaq: BOSA) speaker design and acoustic expertise, bringing the "Boston Sound"(TM) into the vehicle.
Visteon's knowledge of automotive acoustics is key to capturing the best sound possible for each unique vehicle -- creating a complete sound system that makes the most of Boston's high-quality speakers. Visteon's DSP system optimizes the listening environment of the vehicle using sound equalization and audio delays. Visteon customizes this control for individual vehicles to provide the most favorable acoustic environment. These tools and capabilities allow the engineers at Visteon, Boston Acoustics and Chrysler Group to truly deliver an optimized sound experience.
Boston brings its speaker and acoustic quality to the partnership, delivering the clear, clean, balanced sound and the smooth octave-to-octave tonal balance and naturalness in presentation known as the "Boston Sound." Together, Visteon and Boston provide a whole new way of enhancing the driving experience -- bringing the living room environment to the vehicle.
"It's all about collaboration, building customer relationships and understanding the consumer -- that's what has allowed us to design and engineer an audio system specifically for the Chrysler 300 series and its buyers," said John Kill, vice president of Product Development, Visteon Corporation. "The Visteon-Boston Acoustics combination is solid proof that we are focused on quickly delivering the systems that help people fall in love with their cars."
