MTX Audio TD & TH Amplifiers at CES 2012

MTX Audio showcased two new lines of car amplifiers at the 2012 CES show in Las Vegas. These two new lines of amps provide a simple and clean amplifier solution for those looking to power their speakers or subwoofers.

MTX Audio TD Car Amplifiers

The TD series of amps are specifically designed to have big power output in a smaller chassis. By utilizing the latest in car amp technology, MTX was able to create a compact and efficient amplifier. They feature a black aluminum heatsink that spans across the top and sides of the amp case.

MTX Audio TH Car Amplifiers

The TH series of amplifiers are designed to exceed expectations. These new amps are feature packed and stunning looks. Each of the monoblock amplifiers are stable to a 1 ohm load, while the two channel and four channel are stable to 2 ohms. The monoblock amps also feature a clipping protection LED indicator that will inform the installer that the signal is clipping.
Look for more great technologies and products from MTX Audio this year. They also showcased some of the new MTX Audio Extreme gear (pro audio for the car) and some of the new Thunderforms that are completely manufactured in the United States.


JVC Mobile Multimedia Receivers have gone App Crazy!

When Sonic Electronix visited the JVC Mobile booth at the 2012 CES show, it was easy to see that the main focus was apps. JVC is known for having some of the most innovative and cutting edge technologies in their car receivers, while retaining an affordable price. Once again, they have done it again by introducing the JVC KW-AV70BT. This all in one media receiver is the perfect in-dash multimedia receiver for those that have an iPhone.

Compatible Mobile Applications

The JVC multimedia receivers are compatible with a wide variety of mobile apps for the iPhone. The list as of January 2012 is MotionX-GPS Drive, MOG Internet Radio, WebReader, Cobra iRadar, INRIX Traffic, TuneIn Radio, DriveMate Rec, DriveMate SafetyCam, DriveMate Rec mini, DriveMate OnboardCam, DriveMate Time Trial, and SonicMax Pro. Some of the coolest apps are those that are related to GPS navigation. The MotionX-GPS enables the navigation system from your phone to display on the screen of the headunit. The Cobra iRadar app will display select traffic hazards, such as red light cameras. The DriveMate is a cool new app that uses a separate module to record movies and tracks while the car is in motion. INRIX traffic offers advanced traffic data for smooth navigation.

Other cool apps that are compatible with the KW-AV70BT include the Tunein Radio app and MOG Internet radio. Tunein radio is an internet based radio service that streams music from across the globe to your mobile phone. This conveniently puts the world’s music in your car. MOG internet radio is another music based app that gives the user a deep music library right at their fingertips.

JVC has traditionally been a leader in mobile technology and innovation. We can probably expect to see many other units in 2012 merge mobile phone apps with in-dash receivers.


Kenwood offers Android integration on 2012 In-Dash Receivers

Kenwood Car Stereos with Android Integration

At the 2012 CES show in Las Vegas Nevada, Kenwood released many new in-dash receivers with cutting edge technology. The feature that caused the largest buzz at the show that the Android integration with the in-dash receivers. Almost all of the Kenwood’s new line of CD players and media receivers feature Android compatibility.

Kenwood Music Control App for Android Phones

To get the Android integration started off, the user will need to download and install the Kenwood Music Control app on their smartphone. This app is available in the Android marketplace. This app will enable iPod-like browsing of music files and content playback. Those that use their Android device as their primary music player will be excited to hear about this streamlined compatibility.

Pandora Internet Radio for Android, iPhone, and Blackberry

Many of the new 2012 Kenwood receivers will feature Pandora Internet Radio integration. This will allow Pandora to play through the car speakers and the interface (thumbs up, thumbs down, skip track, etc) to be controlled through the car stereo. This technology has been available in the past for iPhones, but now this same user experience is passed on to those with Android phones and Blackberrys.
Kenwood is looking to have a strong line up of car stereos, multimedia receivers, in-dash GPS units, and digital media receivers for 2012. Stay tuned for more information about the 2012 Kenwood line-up!
