Axxess Expands its DSP Product Line with the New AX-DSP-X Series

HOLLY HILL, FL (01.11.2019) – Axxess Integrate by Metra Electronics is introducing its next generation of DSP products at CES 2019, improving upon the original AX-DSP product line. The new AX-DSP-X Series has 10 individually assigned output channels and an option to password protect settings via the Axxess DSP app for phones and tablets. This digital signal processor with chime control and digital amplifier turn-on capability has all of the other features of the original patented AX-DSP (which has a 6 channel output without password protection settings). It is also available in a water resistant model, the AX-DSPX-WR, designed for marine and powersports applications.

Complete Tuning Control: Installers will have full control to fine-tune each of the 10 channel outputs individually, controlled via Bluetooth in the free app. The app makes tuning easy with a 31 band graphic EQ and up to 10ms time delay for each channel, with independent high, low and bandpass filters. Once tuning has been completed, installers can password protect their settings to prevent anyone else from adjusting and the information is stored for future recall.

Retain Features with a Built-in Interface: Utilizing Axxess’s data interface technology, the AX-DSP-X goes beyond what a traditional DSP can do and retains many of the features commonly lost when upgrading a sound system. Voice prompts, parking sensor chimes and other factory chimes are retained with adjustable volume control that many traditional DSPs cannot offer. This is a cost-effective solution for customers who want to retain their factory radio and improve their vehicle sound quality, while still retaining systems like SYNC or OnStar.

One Solution, Many Applications: The AX-DSP-X solution already works with a wide range of vehicle applications and systems, including OE or aftermarket, and digitally controlled amplifiers or analog audio, in addition to non-amplified vehicles that do not have chimes. The AX-DSP-X works with all of the existing AX-DSP harnessing and accessories and still offers the same easy installation behind the radio.

Vehicle-Specific Plug-n-Play Packages for GM, Mercedes, Hyundai/Kia and Harley-Davidson
For faster installation, vehicle-specific harnessing and other accessories will be included in new AX-DSPX Series packages, retaining the ability to work with MOST50, MOST25 and SPDIF amplified systems. For Harley-Davidson, the water-resistant AX-DSPX-WR with a water-resistant plug-n-play harness is included. For all of these vehicle packages, the amplifier, if equipped, does not need to be retained.
