Share Article

Volvo Cars has chosen to use MultEQ, an innovative acoustical correction technology developed by Audyssey Labs, to calibrate new cars equipped with its top-of-the-line Premium Sound systems. MultEQ has earned many awards since its release and is now a key component in many high-end home theater products, including the entire line of Denon AVR's.

The breakthrough here is this is the first automated solution that improves sound in a wide listening area as opposed to a single seat.

"MultEQ was originally developed to achieve reference sound in home theater systems based on several years of university research to identify the key factors that cause acoustical distortion. The algorithms we developed over the past six years were further refined to address the more challenging automotive environment. New measurement and equalization methods were needed in order to remove the acoustical problems in the car," says Chris Kyriakakis, Audyssey CTO and Founder. "We are thrilled to partner with Volvo, a world-class manufacturer of automobiles to extend the home theater sound experience to their customers."

"Choosing to work together with Audyssey Labs is evidence of our high ambition in the audio field," says Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Brand, Business & Product Strategy.

"This announcement is the first of several new markets where our technology will be integrated to improve the quality of sound," says Audyssey CEO Michael Solomon. "The breakthrough here is this is the first automated solution that improves sound in a wide listening area as opposed to a single seat."

In addition to MultEQ, Audyssey has recently developed and released several other technologies: Dynamic Volume, enabling hands free listening through volume levelling, Dynamic EQ for preserving tonal balance and surround impression during lower level listening, and BassXT for extending bass response from smaller speaker drivers. Audyssey anticipates these technologies will also migrate to the automotive environment over time.
