After a long period of research and development, Warwick Acoustics has emerged from “stealth mode” as the world’s first audio technology company to engineer electrostatic-based audio systems for automotive applications.
Since its introduction in the premium headphone market, Warwick Acoustics’ electrostatic technology has been recognised with over 30 international awards for its superior sound quality.
Thanks to a rapidly expanding portfolio of patents on electrostatic transducer design characteristics and manufacturing processes, Warwick Acoustics is now the only company in the world capable of delivering the same immersive listening experiences to the premium in-car audio market.
The company’s electroacoustic panels have been designed to provide significant advantages over conventional audio technology for the entire vehicle system. These panels are up to seventy-five percent lighter, use seventy-five percent less power, and give designers and packagers a great deal more flexibility when it comes to interior design and packaging.
Because they don’t rely on non-renewable rare earth elements like those used in conventional speakers, Warwick Acoustics’ electroacoustic panels are made entirely from mass-produced, upcycled, and recyclable resources.
When it comes to speaker placement and cabin integration, electroacoustic panels give designers a lot more flexibility. In contrast to conventional speakers, these panels can be moulded into a variety of shapes and incorporated into virtually any interior design. Passengers will have more room in their vehicles, and automotive manufacturers will be able to experiment with new visual interior designs, creating new and distinct in-cabin experiences.
According to Warwick Acoustics CEO Mike Grant, “We believe that our revolutionary technology is capable of transforming premium audio in the automotive sector through both the extraordinary acoustic quality our solutions deliver to consumers and the numerous and significant benefits our solutions deliver to OEMs.”
I’m thrilled to finally come out of “stealth mode” after a long period of intense research and development. In the high-end headphone market, our electrostatic loudspeaker technology has been proven and received widespread critical acclaim for its unparalleled, immersive, and precise sound quality; but it was clear that the first significant opportunity for our company lies in the automotive sector.
We have seen an increase in the value and relevance of our technology as the transition to sustainable technology has accelerated. With electric vehicles, the weight and power savings we’ve made are even more compelling than they would be with conventional vehicles. In addition, the upcycled and recyclable materials used in our speakers are a game changer for OEMs who are all seeking to decarbonize their supply bases rapidly. “
