Description: We know the acoustic challenges of car cabins are unique - unlike the signals used in OEM audio systems, which vary widely. This class explains: What OEMs are doing to partially - or comprehensively - address these acoustic challenges. How to diagnose what the OEM has done, simply and without vehicle disassembly; what sort of OEM signals, both digital and analog, we need to interface with. What tools we need - and how to use them - to test for all these things. We will discuss this topic as it affects two categories of business: Add-a-Subs, and Full Range Systems.
