One-of-a-Kind App-Controlled, Bluetooth-Equipped Amplifier Offers Consumers the Ability to Wirelessly Control Crossover, Bass Boost, Gain Levels and More
Today, Phoenix Gold (www.phoenixgold.com) “ a trailblazer in the field of car audio amplifiers, subwoofers and speakers “ announced that it has received a 2013 Best of CES Innovations Award for the ACX600.5 “ a one-of-a-kind, app-powered, Bluetooth-equipped œApp Control Amp. Put simply, the Phoenix Gold ACX600.5 amplifier is the first mobile audio amplifier to have its controls and status fully adjustable and viewable by iOS or Android app. This provides the end user with the ability to intuitively manipulate the amp's crossover frequencies, bass boost, gain levels and more from virtually any smartphone or tablet. Phoenix gold will be debuting the ACX600.5 at 2013 Consumer Electronics Show booth 309, North Hall.
At first glimpse, the ACX600.5 has similar lines and cosmetic features as other Phoenix Gold amps, with five channels for a total of 600w RMS to power your entire mobile audio system. But, on closer inspection you will notice that the traditional mechanical knobs used to adjust settings such as level, bass boost or crossovers are missing. These features are handled via Free iOS or Android app coupled with the device's Bluetooth connection. This lets you use intuitive touchscreen controls to adjust all the amplifier's settings wirelessly from nearly anywhere in or around the vehicle. Additionally, the app allows you to view the amplifier's power supply voltage and operating temperature.
According to Morgan West, Product Line Manager for Phoenix Gold, œSince we re-launched Phoenix Gold at the 2010 CES Show, we've gone out of our way to establish ourselves as the amplifier and speaker brand that seriously pushes the limits of technology. We did it in 2011 by partnering with Pacific Accessory Corporation on the Integration-Series amp for the Chevrolet Camaro. We did it earlier this year when we introduced our high-end Elite amplifiers. Now, we stepped up to the challenge and created an amp that has the potential to shake-up the aftermarket car audio industry forever.
While the wireless and software capabilities of the ACX600.5 are totally cutting edge, the amp's hardware is no slouch either. The ACX600.5 contains five channels of fully discrete audio circuitry, while many OEM and five channel amplifiers use low quality œchip amplifiers. It features not one, but two fully unregulated power supplies for maximum headroom and power output. Plus, its housing is comprised of a high density extruded aluminum that has 7g/mm of heatsink mass, while most traditional amplifiers feature 5g/mm. All this adds up to an amp that exceeds expectations and delivers on performance.
Phoenix Gold has pushed the limits of high-performance mobile audio since it was first founded back in 1985. The perfect fusion of retro styling and state of the art technology, Phoenix Gold amplifiers, subwoofers and speakers deliver solid reliability, gorgeous sound quality and massive performance.
