Kick up the bass
For over two decades, AudioControl has been designing and manufacturing award-winning auto sound products at our factory located in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. During this period, countless sound-off-winning contestants have chosen AudioControl products to give them a competitive edge. "Can you really win without AudioControl", was part of an article written commenting on competition-winning systems. Nothing sounds better than an awesome recording played back on a kick-butt system. Unfortunately, the acoustics of your vehicle can take away from your system's performance. While AudioControl products do not change the laws of physics (although they act as they do), auto sound enthusiasts have long known that AudioControl products "make good stereos sound better".
The Epicenter - Bass Restoration Processor
AudioControl's legendary bass restoration circuitry, The Epicenter, brings out the best bass in any system. Whether you like rock, jazz, hip hop, country, banda, classical, CDs, MP3s, or cassettes, you will love how The Epicenter makes your system sound. More Bass... Louder!!
Patented Bass Maximizer™
The Epicenter contains a bass maximization circuit that accurately recreates and injects low-frequency information back into the signal path. What that means in everyday terms is that The Epicenter will give more bass impact to your best compact discs or even your old tapes. US Patent #4,698,842
What’s the use of having good bass if you can’t control it? The Epicenter has a unique equalization circuit that contours the restored bass to your speaker system.
Dash Mount Control
The Epicenter is designed to be mounted anywhere in the vehicle, with the exception of the front bumper or radiator. It comes with a dash mountable control that allows you to enjoy the effects of The Epicenter without having to leave the driver's seat. The dash mount control also has a dual-color LED indicator that can be rainforest green or sunshine amber. This LED will grow brighter as you add more bass or dimmer when you decrease it.
Bass Maximizer Indicator
Not only does The Epicenter Concert Series provide magic to your ears, but it also gives you some visual enjoyment as well. On the chassis of The Epicenter is a backlighted logo that flashes when the bass maximization circuit is activated. Special effects in your trunk!
PFM Subsonic Filter
This unique feature is legendary with many AudioControl fanatics for its ability to fine-tune the bass response of any system. Why waste power on nasty subsonic information when your Programmable Frequency Match (PFM) filter can help you clean things up?
Bass Output Control
The Epicenter circuitry has the ability to produce large amounts of deep, mind-shattering bass without damaging your speakers. The Bass Output Control circuit allows The Epicenter to maximize the bass output of any auto sound audio system while restraining destructive bursts.
AudioControl's Epicenter bass restoration processing is also available in The Epicenter Micro, which features a compact chassis, high-level inputs, and selectable load resistors for better OEM factory system integration.
