Adding thunderous bass to any aftermarket or factory installed source unit is simple with AudioControl’s release of The Epicenter Plus Bass Restoration processor. The Epicenter Plus adds bass-maximized outputs and signal-sensing remote turn-on to any factory car audio systems by tapping into the speaker-level outputs. AudioControl’s patented Bass Restoration circuit of The Epicenter does an excellent job in restoring lost bass in compressed music formats (MP3s, iPods, and Satellite Radio) and maximizes existing bass. Plus, there is an auxiliary input for adding secondary sources, like iPods and Satellite Radios.
“The bass in factory-installed systems is very lackluster,” explains Chris Kane, National Sales Manager for AudioControl. “The Epicenter is the most popular Bass Restoration processor in the world. In addition to pre-amp inputs, we gave The Epicenter Plus an OEM interface, so those with factory installed source units can enjoy it, too. The Epicenter Plus makes adding aftermarket amplifiers, subwoofers, and quake-enducing bass to factory and aftermarket systems simple. Speaker wires are all you need to deliver more bass, LOUDER.”
The Epicenter Plus uses AudioControl’s patented Bass Restoration circuit to restore and enhance bass frequencies with powerful results. A pair of speaker-level inputs, AudioControl’s GTO Signal-Sense Turn-on, and 12-volt Remote output make, OEM Integration a cinch. Add a dash remote for bass enhancement control and source selection plus an auxiliary input, and your result is the most versatile bass restoration processor ever!
The Epicenter is AudioControl’s world famous patented circuit that gives you more bass, LOUDER. The patented process digitally recovers the bass stolen by compressed audio formats (often referred to as the Bass Bandits) by uncovering and enhancing the hidden low-frequency information found in the harmonics of the upper range.
AudioControl redefined OEM Integration with the LC6i Line Output Converter, demonstrating the performance benefits of active high-to-low conversion. The Epicenter Plus uses the same speaker-level technology, capable of handling up to 400 Watts each, making it universally applicable for interfacing with any factory stereo. AudioControl’s GTO Signal-Sense Turn-on ensures that The Epicenter Plus powers up with the rest of the system and saves you the hassle of tracking-down an ignition lead. The 12-volt remote output enables this same signal sense to power-up other aftermarket amplifiers and processors.
The Epicenter Plus has an Auxiliary input, perfect for adding secondary sources like iPods, Satellite radios, and other “Bass Bandits.” Switching between the main source and auxiliary source is as easy as pushing the remote dash-mountable knob, which illuminates the cool blue LED, notifying you that you’re listening to the auxiliary source.
The Epicenter Plus is set to debut at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, January 7-11, but will be available for holiday shoppers as it will begin shipping in December, with a suggested price of $249.99.
