    Yea K1XV. Not sure I want that electromagnetic energy as RF in my driver compartment. I'd rather keep that in wires.

    "The new speakerless sound system works by exciting certain materials in the vehicle."

    I'd get excited if it sounded great, was safe, and offered other advantages.

    Have any of you heard these systems in action?
    Is it electrostatic as mW Rob mentioned?

    GM will have to get over it's love affair with Bose to adopt this system. Bose is too invested in cheap paper cones priced like high quality drivers to ever give them up.

    Will - that's one of the key development areas - materials technology to get the acoustic attributes you want while meeting the cost and performance targets for the part (i.e.: if it's a rear interior quarter trim panel, head impact, flammability, stiffness requirements). The work that Owens Corning did was so long ago that much of the internet public domain knowledge has been purged, but I did find some articles relative to OC and also the TVR application. To Ragtop99's comments, bass was an issue on the development vehicles that were built back then, so subwoofers were used for low frequency and then mid- and high frequency were handled by the transducer/panel approach.

    Sure, this technology wasn't adopted 16 years ago due to a number of reasons that I can't mention, but with the advancement of electronics and materials, and the ever-increasing emphasis on packaging depth on the interior of vehicles, who knows what happens? I look at active noise cancellation as an example. I did a research paper on this, while in college, in the early '80s!

    You know that the first thing they will do is work on "piping in" more engine noise, and that makes me sad At least it's not two 6 x 9s under the back glass

    Maybe they can just chip our brain with a minor implant and we can listen to our own music.

    Well I see the old quirk of picking up the radio on your dental fillings and braces has finely been brought to its ultimate conclusion .🤐

    You already know the answer. It's marketed to people who are preconceived to think that more of anything always means better.

    How do they get deep Bass out of that system? I'm not sure I want to see a piece of trim rattle that much.
