In 2016 Elettromedia conducted 11 OEM Integration/DSP trainings at Mobile Solutions in Tempe AZ. The company trained hundreds of technicians last year at Mobile Solutions. 

"We know that we MUST reach more of our customer’s technicians this year to preserve the future of our customers as well as our business. These are 'can’t miss' trainings for retail survival in 2017 and beyond," said Rob Wempe, VP of Elettromedia-USA. "We have been so fortunate to be involved with Bryan Schmitt and Mobile Solutions.

8/10/2016 -- Elettromedia has begun shipping the Hertz H8 DSP processor. Taking ideas and the design of the Audison Bit Ten and Bit Ten D, the processor will include analog and digital inputs that can all be controlled through its specially designed software via computer.

The H8 DSP inputs will include the following features:

-          4 High level of low level inputs

-          1 auxiliary input

-          Optical digital input that will accept a signal at a sample rate up to 96/24bit

Any source can be selected through the DRC HE remote.

The H8 DSP  will consist of 8 channels of pre out analog outputs that will have a independent 31 band equalizer for each channel.

An added feature that is not found on their current processors is the UCS (User Control Set). This allows the installer to wire the H8 DSP to get a signal and automatically switch to one of its stored memories (Mem A or Mem B). For example, the passenger seat belt sensor can trigger the H8 DSP to switch to Mem B of that tune is set for driver + passenger.

January 15, 2020 -- The Audison design team, headquartered in the Potenza Picena (Italy), spent a long time planning and perfecting the new SR line. After numerous listening tests in a double-blind configuration on a significant sample of professionals and enthusiasts, the R&D team decided to adopt a new D-class technology called ADT (Audison D-Class Technology) for the entire SR amplifier line. This technology made it possible to reduce the size of the amplifiers while totally preserving the audio performance that characterize each Audison project.

The New SR Line consists of these four models:

  • SR 4.300   MAP $ 399.99   85w x 4 @ 4ohms
  • SR 4.500   MAP $ 499.99   130w x 4 @ 4ohms
  • SR 5.600   MAP $ 549.99   75w x 4 @ 4ohms, and 550w x 1 @ 1 ohm
  • SR 1.500   MAP $ 399.99   500w x 1 @ 4ohms, 800w x 1 @ 2ohms, 1000w x 1 @ 1 ohm
  • Optional VCR-S1 Remote Volume Control for both models.

Some New Features include:

Built in USS (Universal Speaker Simulator)

When using the high-level inputs, the SR amplifiers can also be appropriately connected to OEM sources featuring the “speaker load detection” function that monitor the presence of a low-impedance load to enable audio outputs.

Complete Controls on Top Panel

As per tradition, the SR amplifiers confirm their vocation for versatility by including on all models a complete filter section, suitable for any type of audio system configuration. The controls, protected by a satin-finish aluminum panel, are located on the amplifier upper panel, to be easily reached from above even after the product has been installed. When the system includes an Audison bit processor, the filter section can be totally excluded.

Limitless Connectivity

All models are equipped with high-level balanced inputs for connection to the OEM Head Unit speakers output and low RCA level for the after-market ones. When the high level input is used, the ART function (Automatic Remote Turn-On / Off) can be enabled to control the switching on of the amplifiers with the head unit switch-on button. In addition, there is a remote IN / OUT socket to allow the control of multiple cascaded amplifiers switch on when required.

The SR 1.500, SR 4.300 and 4.500 models recreate the PRE-OUT signal by using the Speaker-IN input to interface it with OEM sources only equipped with amplified outputs, allowing the system expansion.

Built in Crossovers

Lo-Pass and Hi-Pass 12 dB adjustable (50 Hz to 3200 Hz) filters, providing the ability to build a front + rear system, a multichannel – woofer + tweeter system or a powerful sub + front system.

On the SR 5.600 & SR 1.500 models

24 dB continuous adjustable (50 to 500 Hz) Lo-Pass subwoofer filter. SUBSONIC filter (24 dB - 25 Hz), removes very low subsonic frequencies from music signal to avoid damages to the subwoofer.

January 9, 2020 -- Just as the virtuous performer holds the absolute mastery of the instrument and the technique connected to it, the bit One HD Virtuoso features unique skills dedicated to the most ambitious OEM Integration projects and excels in the uncompromising Hi-End systems. This was made possible thanks to innovative functions born with the new software / firmware development and the upgrade of some key components in the audio signal path, which are crucial to reach new heights of listening pleasure.

The Audison bit One HD Virtuoso has the following Upgrades:

Higher quality hardware used:

-          SILMIC Series ELNA capacitors specific for audio use.

-          WIMA high performance Metalized Polypropylene film capacitors

-          High Performance Burr Brown OP Amps OPAx 134 SoundPlus series.

-          Cirrus-Logic CS 4365- 6 CH and CS4385 -8 CH 24 bit / 192 kHz DA converters with 114 dB S/N.

-          Selectable between SLOW or FAST digital filter responses to customize the listening experience.

-          USS built in. (Universal Speaker Simulator)

Software Upgrades:

-          Only one Firmware to support both FIR and IIR digital networks

-          Added Pass-through input configuration (Master)

-          Automatic Routing

-          Improved DE-EQ and introducing Phase analysis / auto and manually correctable All Pass filters.

-          New Large pop out EQ window, for better visibility and ease of use.

MAP price is $1699.99 and shipping NOW!

September 4, 2019 -- The amount of technology needed to work on today’s automobiles is getting greater every year. We all know that. As an industry, we must keep educating ourselves to insure we can stay relevant.

Following the success of the EDUCAR trainings at Knowledgefest this year, Elettromedia-USA has announced a series of educational dealer trainings to be taught by Jason Kranitz of Kingpin University, and assisting Jason will be Lance Doss of EM-USA. The classes will be held at Kingpin University located in Las Vegas, NV.

The schedule includes “Fundamentals of Sound” to be held on September 17-18, “Mastering DSP” on October 16-17, “Masters Training” on November 2-4 (just prior to the SEMA Show) and the series will end with a repeat of “Mastering DSP” on December 4-5. (see full schedule below)

There is a small cost associated with each course depending upon the subject matter covered. Included are hotel accommodations and meals. Classes will be limited to 20 students and for those attending the class, EM-USA will provide FREE tools (specific to the training) that the students can take back to their shop. The overall concept is to combine knowledge, understanding and the “right tools” to grow skill levels while eliminating technical barriers.

The “Masters Training” will be by “invitation only” as EM-USA looks to harness the knowledge and expertise of our leading technicians to help steer future educational classes while teaching them some new skills and techniques.

Rob Wempe VP Sales and Marketing for EM-USA is passionate about offering these trainings because “it’s imperative that we educate and train our dealers to have the knowledge and confidence to implement integration solutions necessary to compete within the rapidly evolving technologies of today’s vehicles.” He went on to say, “Dealers need the knowledge, tools and products necessary to provide their customers with a fully integrated audio system upgrade and who better to provide this training than EM-USA. We have been pioneering DSP integration technology for over a decade. We also believe we must train new technicians to our industry. That is why we are offering our Fundamentals of Sound class.”
