Last year Audison introduced the very popular BMW Sound Pack. This year the all new F-150 Sound Pack is available for both the base model systems as well as the Sony systems. These Sound Packs will use the Prima AP5.9bit or the AP8.9bit for amplification. The replacement front speakers will be the all new APK690 or APK570, 6x9 and 5x7 component kits. The replacement rear speakers will employ the APX6.5 or the APX570. The subwoofer enclosures will either be the APBX8R or the APBX10AS, amplified enclosure depending on the vehicle and system. These Sound Packs will include the wire harnesses and speaker adaptors included in the kits. The all new Ford F150 system configurator will be added to the Audison website next week.

The range of Prima components expands with the introduction of the new 2” wide range component speaker AP2. This speaker has an ultra-wide frequency response ranging from 150 Hz to 20kHz.

Our dealers have asked for 5x7 and 6x9 component kits. We have delivered. The all new APK570 and APK690 are here. These kits will use dedicated crossovers with each kit and will include the AP1 tweeter. As always, our Prima speakers are very efficient with a sensitivity of 93 dB for the tweeter and 93.5 dB for the woofer. The woofers will also be sold separately.

Prima’s compact subwoofer family expands with the introduction of the new 10” APS10 S4S single 4-ohm VC. To compliment this new woofer the APBX10 S4S compact enclosure will also debut.

Last, but definitely not least is the new Thesis TH 6.5II SAX, 6.5” woofer. This speaker was born from a blank sheet with the aim of overcoming all the limits dictated by compromise-oriented design choices. This philosophy allowed us to obtain extreme performance and a design projected into the future, faithful to the inspiring principle of maximum transparency of the musical message.

Please stop by our booths 1006 in Long Beach and 338 in Indianapolis to see these products as well as many more new products from Elettromedia.
