just got this in an email update from Tymphany:
More Bass for Alpine Customers
High-performance mobile electronics manufacturer, Alpine Electronics, has introduced two products based on the Tymphany LAT. Alpine is using both 500 and 700 size LATs in its PLT-5 and PLV-7 Powered LAT Subwoofer Systems, which are ideal for space-constrained vehicles.
“We believe the Tymphany LAT technology is helping to revolutionize our subwoofer product offerings, and especially products for trucks and SUVs – vehicles that typically have little or no space to devote to large, traditional cone-shaped subwoofers,” says Stephen Witt, Alpine’s vice president of Marketing. “When we branded our product, it made sense to incorporate the name of this technology because the Tymphany LAT forms the foundation of this new class of subwoofer systems.”
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) named the Alpine Powered LAT Subwoofer as an Innovations 2006 Design and Engineering Showcase honoree in the Vehicle Audio category.
