AudioControl Store

For over two decades, AudioControl has been designing and manufacturing award-winning autosound products at our factory located in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest. During this period, countless sound-off winning contestants have chosen AudioControl products to give them the competitive edge. “Can you really win without AudioControl”, was part of an article written commenting on competition winning systems. Nothing sounds better than an awesome recording played back on a kickbutt system. Unfortunately, the acoustics of your vehicle can take away from your systems performance. While AudioControl products do not change the laws of physics (although they act like they do), autosound enthusiasts have long known that AudioControl products “make good stereo sound better”

The Epicenter - Bass Restoration Processor

AudioControl’s legendary bass restoration circuitry, The Epicenter, brings out the best bass in any system. Whether you like rock, jazz, hip hop, country, banda, classical, CD’s, MP3’s, or cassettes, you will love how The Epicenter makes your system sound. More Bass… Louder!!

The unique bass restoration circuit of The Epicenter, originally patented by AudioControl, looks at the low frequency harmonics that are in the upper frequencies and uses them to recreate the lower bass fundamentals that have been compressed, rolled off, or simply removed. The chart Linked Here shows what it does for the signal. What it does for you, is provide deep earth-shaking bass that you’ve never heard before.

Key Features:

Patented Bass Maximizer™

The Epicenter contains a bass maximization circuit that accurately recreates and injects low frequency information back into the signal path. What that means in everyday terms is that The Epicenter will give more bass impact to your best compact discs or even your old tapes. US Patent #4,698,842

Para-Bass ™

What’s the use of having good bass if you can’t control it? The Epicenter has a unique equalization circuit that contours the restored bass to your speaker system.

Dash Mount Control

The Epicenter is designed to be mounted anywhere in the vehicle, with the exception of the front bumper or radiator. It comes with a dash mountable control that allows you to enjoy the effects of The Epicenter without having to leave the drivers seat. The dash mount control also has a dual color LED indicator that can be rainforest green or sunshine amber. This LED will grow brighter as you add more bass or dimmer when you decrease it.

Bass Maximizer Indicator

Not only does The Epicenter Concert Series provide magic to your ears, but it also gives you some visual enjoyment as well. On the chassis of The Epicenter is a backlighted logo that flashes when the bass maximization circuit is activated. Special effects in your trunk!

PFM Subsonic Filter

This unique feature is legendary with many AudioControl fanatics for its ability to fine tune the bass response of any system. Why waste power on nasty subsonic information when your Programmable Frequency Match (PFM) filter can help you clean things up?

Bass Output Control

The Epicenter circuitry has the ability to produce large amounts of deep, mind shattering bass without damaging your speakers. The Bass Output Control circuit allows The Epicenter to maximize the bass output of any autosound audio system while restraining destructive bursts.

Built-in Crossover
A crossover is a type of filtering system that permits only certain frequencies to play. A Low-Pass (LP) crossover allows only frequencies below its setting to get through which is normally used with subwoofers. A High-Pass(HP) filter allows frequencies above its setting to pass through, which is normally used with speakers.
No
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 22,000 Hz
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
130 dB
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)
The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.

Audio control epicenter

March 16, 2011

The Epicenter will beat your subs better than OJ beating a charge. If you love your audio, this is a must have. I was skeptic about shelling out the cash for it but everyone keeps saying how much the love the strong clean bass. Don't waste your money on cheap crap, get the epicenter and trust me u won't be disappointed.

Bass lovers best friend...... mostly.

July 28, 2014

I purchased this because I wanted to compare it to another Bass Restorer that I own thinking that it would not reduce bass in bass heavy songs like the other one did, but it still did. Although not quite as much as the other one. This is a better product than the less expensive ones, and is priced more because of that fact. If you listen to older music or rock, then this exponentially increases bass, and even does so with some rap/hip hop/dance music. Overall, it's better than other bass restorers, and if you listen to older music, it's a must have piece of equipment. I have it hooked up to 2 10" JL W3V3'S and it makes them DANCE BIG TIME. Got a 13W7 on the way, we will see how that works out with it.

If you want to go low, here you go

January 9, 2006

The epicenter was just the answer I needed to my troubles with not being able to reproduce low frequencies. I had my box for thrre IDQ 12DVC's built by the current Isaca World champion in the pro class at 600-1000. he spec tuned it for SQ, and it really sounds great but I did'nt get the low end that I wanted. So after about a year of that, I installed an epicenter for the subs and OMG!!! It is noticable to hear the one octave difference and being able to control SQ and SPL is a great feature. Overall I think this is the best subsonic filter on the market.

Low! Low! Bass

July 26, 2006

The Epicenter is perfect if LOW bass is what you want.It will reproduce bass signals in ALL types of music from Classic,Rock,Gospel,Mellow,ETC.You name it, the Epicenter will amaze you.For the best results run it from your deck at full range; you will get better roll off hitting the high bass notes all the way down too the Lo-Lows.The control knob and the para-bass knobs allows you to configure how much bass you can handle.It will definitely improve the BASS in your system.
On the down side you probably gonna have to spend some time figureing out what set-up sounds best for your taste.Keep in mind subs, amps, acoustics and box type will all play a big factor in the sound you get.

Low bass Magic

May 5, 2006

If u Lov Low Bass. Than this is it. I own this product, and I love it. I recommend it to serious low-end bass freaks, (especially if u listen to old school R&B & rock… 808’s wasn’t invented then!) Para-bass knobs will take some time figuring out. Cons will put some serious strain on subs, amp (can drive Class D amps into clipping fast @ hi levels) And Current Draw (can make lights flicker 2 much.)
para-bass is like a parametric e.q. so Turing them counter clock wise, will produce lower tones. Try playing test tones on your system 1st. & if u can’t hit the notes between 20 – 45 hz then your system isn’t going to have the best results with this product… this thing seems to be centered @ 20 – 35 hz notes. Purest may not like the sound this thing makes synthetic sounding unnaturally low bass… it will process between 50 – 95hz lowering them 30 hz i.e. 50zh natural will get dropped to 20 hz. With the epicenter… if u don’t have test tones get them hear free http://www.realmofexcursion.com/jmac/audio/0dB_wav_test_tones.rar

Great bassssssss!

August 26, 2010

I bought it not thinking it would enhance my bass as much as it did. With a system as large as mine it may have slightly been an overkill. I would use it on a system where you think you squeeze out a little more bass without rebuilding your whole system.
