AudioControl Celebrates Milestone 40th Year Anniversary

Seattle, WA, June 22nd, 2017 – AudioControl® (audiocontrol.com), designers and manufacturers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for residential, commercial and automotive markets since 1977 is proud to have been serving car audio enthusiasts with the finest products for 40 years. From the beautiful Pacific Northwest region of the USA, AudioControl has established a culture of innovation, superb components and outstanding customer service from a team that is truly passionate about making good sound great.

“Our customers far and wide simply love what we do, and our engineers have a well-deserved reputation for being legends within the audio engineering community—they know a thing or two about creating fine audio products that offer great reliability, performance and value,” explained CEO Alex Camara.

In the early days of aftermarket car audio when 8-track and cassette tapes ruled the earth, the AudioControl product lineup consisted of specialty components that were sold through some of the very first car audio retailers/installers. The company mission was to enable our dealers to help consumers overcome the acoustic anomalies of their automobiles in order to enjoy the finest possible sound. After heroically saving much of humanity from a subpar listening experience on the open road, AudioControl has since garnered countless awards and numerous patents for advances in the reproduction of sound.

Over four decades, as audio engineering advanced from LP records, tape, CDs, MP3s and beyond, AudioControl has created a revered lineup of outstanding car audio processors, amplifiers and OEM interface solutions sold and installed worldwide by the most qualified professionals.

Today, the mission for AudioControl remains the same: to provide aftermarket car audio retailers the tools they need to create a lifelike entertainment experience that outperforms expectations for each and every customer. As an example, AudioControl is leading the charge with OEM integration solutions for aftermarket car audio retailers, enabling them to satisfy consumer demand for great sound even in vehicles where the factory radio cannot be replaced.

“For 40 years, AudioControl has engineered and manufactured some of the finest audio components proudly made in the USA,” Camara added. “Our products are sold throughout the US and internationally in approximately 35 countries worldwide. As our loyal dealers and end-users can attest, few things are as gratifying as the gift of music, and AudioControl continues to be at the forefront of making good sound great by offering the most advanced, high-performance components we have ever produced.”

AudioControl Awarded Patent for Revolutionary AccuBASS® Technology

New intelligent bass compensation circuit available in a wide range of car and home products including the award-winning AudioControl DM-810 digital signal processor

Seattle, WA, November 17th, 2016 – AudioControl (audiocontrol.com), makers of innovative high-performance audio solutions for the residential, commercial and automotive markets has been awarded a patent (U.S. Patent # is 9,225,305) for their innovative AccuBASS technology for both automotive and home audio applications. AccuBASS technology has been designed to give listeners a highly accurate representation of the low frequency range (50 Hz to 125 Hz) of any recording and is featured in several AudioControl products including the newly launched DM-810, the latest in digital signal processing for OEM automotive sound systems, and a CTA Innovations Award Honoree.

In the majority of factory installed automotive sound systems, bass content is automatically reduced by circuitry in the audio electronics as volume is increased by the listener to reduce stress on the speakers. The AccuBASS circuit is an unprecedented smart technology that has been designed to seamlessly apply bass compensation only when required in order to restore the bass to its proper level within the recording. This provides aftermarket car audio retailers with a system upgrade path while retaining the car’s factory radio and related audio electronics. The AccuBASS technology remains true to the bass content in the original recording, activating only when it senses that the bass in the factory system begins rolling off. As a result of this patented engineering achievement, listeners can now enjoy smooth, accurate bass response at all system volumes. AccuBASS technology can also be used in an “always on” mode to enhance the low frequency performance of any sound system, making this technology a versatile and highly valuable tool for any system designer/installer.

“AccuBASS brings AudioControl-engineered and patented dynamic bass compensation capability to our worldwide network of dealers, giving them an elegant solution to the challenge of bass-deficient factory car audio systems,” explained AudioControl CEO Alex Camara. “Now consumers can enjoy rich, dynamic bass the way artists intended as AudioControl makes AccuBASS available in a wide array of our car and home products,” Camara added.
