Revolutionising in-car sound
Brit firm Warwick Acoustics is aiming to disrupt the £6 billion in-car audio market with innovative Electro Acoustic Panels, based on its patented Electrostatic Loudspeaker technology. This can create speakers that are up to 75% lighter, consume 75% less power and offer designers more freedom in their placement around the cabin.
Unlike conventional cone speakers, its Electro Acoustic Panels can be moulded into ‘diverse form factors and incorporated into almost all interior surface designs.’
The technology has already received critical acclaim in the premium headphone market, where the company has amassed over 30 global awards. CEO Mike Grant, said: “It is exciting to finally exit ‘stealth mode’ after many years of intense research and development. While we have proven our Electrostatic Loudspeaker technology in the high-end headphone market, it was always clear that it was in the automotive sector where the initial significant opportunity for the company truly lies. The relevance and value of our cutting edge technology have only increased as the transition of the sector to sustainable technology quickly accelerates. The substantial improvements we have made in terms of weight saving and power reduction become even more compelling with the advancement of electric vehicles, rather than combustion engined vehicles.”
