Axxess Expands on AX-DSP Product Line with New Solutions for 2017-Up* Ford Models

Axxess Integrate® by Metra Electronics® is introducing Ford 2017-up* AX-DSP packages at the 2018 SEMA Show. The patented Axxess Digital Signal Processor (AX-DSP), a vehicle-specific T-harness, A2B data interface and amplifier bypass harness is included. “The Axxess Digital Signal Processor product line we introduced at last year’s SEMA Show was met with great demand, so we’ve been working to develop even more AX-DSP packages and harnesses for our customers,” says Juan Lugo, Director of Product Development for Axxess. Other new solutions for this product line will include the AX-DSP-HD1 and HD2 harnesses to cover select Harley-Davidson® 1998-up* models. The low-profile AX-DSP size makes it ideal for motorcycle audio and the new T-harnesses will reduce installation time.

Ford A2B Plug-n-Play Packages with AX-DSP

This complete DSP package is designed to retain the OE functionality when upgrading a sound system. Designed for select Ford 2017-up* vehicles with a Sony A2B amplifier (AX-DSP-A2B1) or 2018-up* vehicles with a Bang & Olufsen A2B amplifier (AX-DSP-A2B2), this technology will retain SYNC voice prompts (if equipped), parking sensor chimes and other factory chimes. All chimes and voice prompts will go through the aftermarket amplifier and have an adjustable chime level. The amplifier does not need to be retained and installation of the AX-DSP must be done at the amplifier location.

About the Patented AX-DSP Technology
The AX-DSP 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®. This digital signal processor sets itself apart with on-board digital amplifier turn-on capability, chime retention with volume control, and fully adjustable 31 band graphic EQ with time delay. All features and adjustments are controlled via Bluetooth® to the Axxess smartphone application, available for iOS and Android devices. The AX-DSP, which began shipping in the summer of 2017, already works with a wide range of vehicle applications, including non-amplified vehicles that do not have chimes. *See the AX-DSP application chart at AxxessInterfaces.com for up-to-date, vehicle specific information.

Metra Electronics will have off-road, truck and powersports accessories at booth 37011 in the South Hall Upper Level.
