Bass Reconstruction Processors Specifications

Input Connection Type
This is the type of input that the unit accepts.
Speaker Level Inputs
Speaker level inputs are commonly referred to as high-level inputs and vice versa. This input type allows you to get your audio signal directly from the speaker wire in your vehicle, instead of using RCA cables. The advantage of this is factory integration, as most stock radios do not have RCA outputs to run amplifiers.
Output Connection Type
This is the type of output that the unit accepts.
Maximum Input Voltage
This is the maximum voltage that the processor is able to accept.
Maximum Output Voltage
This is the maximum voltage that the processor is able to output.
Adjustable Center Frequency
This function allows you to adjust the center frequency of the signal proccessing.
LED Indicators
This refers to any LED illumination present on the unit. This includes Power Indicators, Clipping Indicators, illuminated logo's, etc.
Bass/Gain Remote
If the unit comes with a bass/gain remote you will be able to control the level of your bass from your dashboard. Typically bass remotes also include a 16-20 ft. wire for installation.
Auxiliary Input
This refers to whether or not the unit has an auxiliary input for connecting additional accessories.
Total Number of Inputs
This is the total number of input connections that go into the unit.
Total Number of Outputs
This is the total number of output connections that the unit will produce.
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.
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).
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.
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.

Epic 160

February 3, 2011

I owned a Epic Center way back in the day (late 90's) and when I built my current system, adding one was a must. The 160 brings to life all the great 80's music, and current that I listen to. My 12" Alpine type X slams beautifully with this device. The only downside to the 160 is you have to tune it to each song, but you will get the hang of it after a week or two. Installation was simple, although if it were a true1/2 DIN it would be better. Minor trimming to the tray under the head unit was a breeze. If you want to feel bass the way it was meant to be felt, then the Epic 160 is a must!!!

This thing brought my subs to life. What a difference. AudioControl has outdone themselves with this. I turn it off every once and again just to remember what bass sounded like before going high-tech. Unbelievable difference, wouldn't create another system without it.

Great product

May 30, 2010

Product is great! Unlike a remote bass knob for an amplifier, you can change frequency and bandwidth being attenuated. The spl/voltage meter is a nice touch as well. I have been a fan of AudioControl since the original Epicenter.

May 27, 2010

Work's really good! I would tell anyone to buy this item if they are looking for a good bass reconstructor! I love the fact that it's mounted indash! Only thing that I didn't really like is the fact that it doesnt have lighting around the knob's. But other wise it's a really good item!
