“Intelligent Tune” Original Sound Technology

Featuring originally developed Clarion sound technologies to turn the car interior into an excellent listening environment. Includes Vocal Image Control to move the vocal to a specific seat in the car, Sound Restorer for full quality sound reproduction of compressed audio data, Virtual Bass for powerful bass without subwoofer, and other exciting sound technologies

“Vocal Image Control” reproduces dynamic vocals and real sound staging 

When listening to music in your car, you may want to position the vocals in front of the driver’s seat or in the middle of the dashboard, depending on personal preference. Vocal Image Control extracts the mid-range frequencies in the centre of the source material, where vocal elements are recorded, and balances the volume to acoustically “move” the sound image of the vocals in any direction, closer or farther, to the left or to the right. Without adversely affecting sound quality or depth of presence, it allows you to adjust the location of vocals the way you like.


“Sound Restorer” restores lost signal elements to compressed audio

During the encoding process of compressed audio data such as MP3 and WMA files, high-frequency sound elements are lost in exchange for reduced data size. Sound Restorer is a technology that restores these high-frequency sound elements to attain results nearly identical to the original before compression, thereby providing richer audio quality during playback.

“Virtual Bass” delivers powerful lows just like an add-on subwoofer

Small speakers tend to reproduce sound that is lacking in bass performance due to their size constraints.
Virtual Bass is a technology based on acousticopsychology, in which harmonic elements of low bass sound are added to the signal to reinforce the low range the speaker cannot physically reproduce. The listener hears powerful bass almost like a subwoofer has been added, even from just small speakers.

“Graphic EQ” with 6 modes for equalisation to match various tastes in sound

Graphic EQ creates a sound field with amazing depth and presence in your car. If offers six modes - BASS.B / HIGH.B / ACOUSTIC /IMPACT / SMOOTH / FLAT - to enable easy sound taste adjustment to match the genre of music being played. Also equipped with fine sound adjustment capabilities to fine-tune the sound to your liking.

“Volume Smoother” automatically adjusts the volume

As music media and content diversifies and people play files acquired from various sources, they wind up having to frequently adjust the volume to compensate for differences in recording levels. Volume Smoother automatically adjusts to the optimum volume level in a wide range of situations, like when transitioning from one tune to another or from a TV programme to a commercial. There is also a function to adjust volume in accordance with vehicle speed to overcome road noise and relieve the driver from having to adjust it himself,contributing to safer driving.
1. DVD Video Volume Smoother OFF
   Sudden change in reproduction volumes when switching sources
2. DVD Video Volume Smoother ON
   Optimum reproduction volume is automatically adjusted and kept.

4V / 6-channel audio pre-out makes it easy to expand and upgrade

With 3 sets of RCA outputs, with 2 channels each, you are free to add external power amplifiers to create a more powerful, sophisticated audio system. What’s more, the 4-volt output ensures a pure, high quality signal for the entire sound system.
