ELS Studio 3D®
DJX surround sound technology
The latest addition to our audio innovations portfolio, DJX uses newly-developed 3D upmix technology that processes ordinary two-channel stereo and outputs 5.1 surround sound to center, L/R front and L/R rear speakers and a subwoofer. Powered by a proprietary algorithm, DJX envelops the listener in a more refined and immersive listening environment while enhancing a sense of cabin spaciousness.
Panasonic Exciter and Honda bring a new dimension to the tailgate experience
Exciter takes car audio beyond the cabin interior and turns any linear surface – sheet metal or glass, for example – into a powerful speaker. Panasonic Exciter technology is featured in the acclaimed Honda Ridgeline RTL-E in the form of its truck-bed audio system. Six Exciters hidden behind the Ridgeline’s bed liner turn both side walls and the bulkhead into a dynamic speaker providing the ultimate tailgating amenity. Panasonic engineered the system to draw minimal power enabling the Ridgeline speaker to play for up to three hours. It’s also waterproof with no compromise in bed ruggedness so Ridgeline owners can crank up the Rolling Stones after hauling a load of gravel.
