New Bose System Switches EQ Settings Automatically
May 20, 2015

Bose announced the second of its next generation advanced technology systems will automatically switch between two equalization settings.

The system, for the 2016 MX-5 Miata roadster convertible has been tuned for one EQ setting when the car’s top is down and one for the top-up. The Bose system adjusts the EQ settings automatically based on the position of the roof, as well as the level of wind noise and road noise.

The system also places speakers in the front headrests that are acoustically matched to that position.    They include a pair of 2-inch Bose UltraNearfield speakers that work with Bose digital signal processing to create a “wide sound stage even though the speakers are just inches away from the listener,” said Bose.

A pair of 6.5-inch speakers are placed in each door for full-range sound, and 1-inch neodymium tweeters are located in each A-pillar for high-frequency audio. Bass is handled by a 5.25-inch woofer housed in a 6-liter custom enclosure designed to fit under the front passenger footwell without taking up cabin space. Completing the system is a dedicated, 7-channel digital Bose amplifier mounted below the MX-5’s convertible-top storage space.

The first Bose Advanced Technology System was revealed in March for the Cadillac CTS using 34 speakers with 20 channels of custom EQ.

Let me first say that the customer service is absolutely AMAZING!!! From the instant I walked in, Dave was right there to welcome me into this concubine of what is now the pain of my wallets existence. Unlike most reps, he listened to what I was looking for in a audio system in my 2004 dodge ram 1500 quad cab. He recommended some features, that at first I was reluctant to agree to, but I decided for the nominal price difference, what could it hurt. HE WAS RIGHT ON THE MONEY!!! I ended with a full pioneer load out sporting two 10" sub that will rock your body cavity out of the cab and no one will be able to hear you cry for help! Alas, I could dial 911 on the included bluetooth feature through the head unit to come pick you up from becoming a smear on the pavement. I was then naturally hooked. I came back a week later to purchase HID headlights. Let me just tell you, you can see into tomorrow with these things! I am not a fan of night driving, but being able to provide enough lighting for surrounding commuters, I would say that they perform their job above and beyond. Not only do they look cool as fuck, the wiring was tidied up and hidden so it doesn't look like a rats nest under my hood. From there came the topic of dash cracking. Anyone who owns a ride they are passionate about knows exactly what I am talking about. You get that fuzzy dash cover to hide one eyesore with another. No one wants to see the marianna's trench creeping across their $1000 dashboard with that helpless feeling of despair. Well, you can fix that with some window film to block out the UV. My Black on Black ride is easily 70% cooler when I hop into it from sitting out in the sun for a few hours opposed to before. Best investment above all that I made for comfort. Upon that installment, next followed a roll-away bedcover since I wanted to have full security in any cargo I might carry. No, not paraphernalia for you younglings out there. (spending your money on the wrong stuff). Upon receiving this cover, it wouldn't fit, no matter what adjustment, nothing fit. Turns out wrong model in the correct box. No damage done to vehicle, I was kept informed of everything that was going on and graciously gave them as much time as needed to finish the job. I recommend to stop wasting your time in search of the cheap ass shops out there that provide the same product with service similar to anal leakage. Pony up and spend a few more dollars and see where the quality in service come through. You will not once, regret it. Don't be that jerk that thinks your car is the only one they are working on, they are busy for a reason, QUALITY PRODUCT DELIVERY! Give them the time to do the job right and you will never have anything to complain about. Next I will be taking my 240SX there for a complete overhaul and plan on having pictures for references. You don't have to believe me, just go walk in and talk to them. Any of them. Mike, Shawn or Dave......just take the first step, you will know what I am talking about.
