Works in real time to rebuild audio details lost in digitally compressed music that we listen to via MP3’s, streaming players and satellite radio. With Clari-Fi, music sounds clearer, crisper, wider and more dynamic.
A suite of active noise management solutions that work to improve noise levels and to enhance and contour sound inside and outside the vehicle:
Active noise cancellation technologies:
Engine Order Cancellation (EOC) dampens engine sound without using traditional fuel-sucking methods of making the chassis heavier or producing a drone from cylinder shutdown.
Road Noise Cancellation (RNC) reduces unwanted road noise inside the car, enabling automakers to use lightweight chassis materials and thereby increase fuel mileage and reduce emissions.
Electronic sound systems:
Internal Electronic Sound Synthesis (iESS) helps synthesize an exhilarating engine sound that adds a very emotional element to the overall driving experience.
External Electronic Sound Synthesis (eESS) enhances the driving experience by managing noise and sound inside and outside the vehicle, which making the car more environmentally friendly and fuel efficient.
