ZENEC’s 2-DIN infotainer for the AUDI A3 combines the latest multimedia functions with optimal in-vehicle integration and can be easily upgraded to a naviceiver

Versatile Infotainer: ZENEC Z-E3150 for the AUDI A3

Z-E3150: Infotainer for AUDI A3

Multimedia specialist ZENEC expands its product range with another vehicle-specific E>GO infotainer: the Z-E3150 from the Essential II Series is the optimal multimedia retrofit for all AUDI A3 8P/8PA models. Top DAB+ radio reception, comprehensive media compatibility and easy smartphone connection – the Z-E3150 is an allrounder that is conveniently controlled from the capacitive touch-sensitive 7″/17.8 cm screen.

PERFECT INTEGRATION IN THE AUDI A3
Radically simpler integration in the specific target vehicle is what distinguishes the E>GO series: a system solution specifically designed for the vehicle. The Z-E3150 is technically and visually tailored to the AUDI A3: due to its specific construction, design of the front control panel and the red/white switchable button illumination it blends in perfectly with the AUDI A3 8P/8PA models. Interfaced with the vehicle electronics via the CAN bus, it supports comfort functions like connection to the driver information system (FIS) or the multifunction steering wheel, and the display of OPS and ECON Climatronic.

MAKES EVERY TRIP MORE ENTERTAINING
Watching DVDs, playing CDs or using a USB stick or smartphone for audio and video playback – no chance of getting bored with so many entertainment options on offer from the Z-E3150. Naturally you can also just listen to radio if you want – in top digital quality. The integrated DAB+ double tuner ensures interference-free reception and boasts Service Following, dynamic station list, MOT Slideshow and DLS text.
A 10-band graphic EQ and the DSP based 5-channel time alignment offer comprehensive settings for optimal adjustment of the sound to personal preferences.

DREAM TEAM: E>GO & ANDROID SMARTPHONES
Thanks to the integrated SmartLink Direct function Android smartphones can be used with the Z-E3150 reliably and directly in any AUDI A3. Simply dock your mobile phone via a USB connection to the E>GO – the screen content of the Android smartphone is then immediately mirrored on the display of the ZENEC infotainer. This enables all apps including the sat nav apps to be accessed without touching the mobile device – that is connected driving in a new dimension.
The Z-E3150 supports the Made for iPod/iPhone functionality of Apple devices. Naturally the E>GO can also use Bluetooth handsfree for conveniently dealing with phone calls via the hands-free system, and streaming music.

Z-E3150: COMFORT AND SAFETY
ZENEC’s new E>GO stands for driving comfort, and enhanced driving safety in the AUDI A3; and not only because of the uncomplicated, intuitive operation of the device while driving. The vehicle status indication shown on the display gives warning of any open doors, open trunk lid or open engine hood, and provides information about the state of the vehicle lighting. Plus there is a cockpit real time display of the actual vehicle data: the tank fill level in liters, the battery voltage, and the outside temperature are clearly presented on the display of the Z-E3150. In addition there are also indications showing if the driver’s seat belt is fastened or the parking brake is applied (depending on the build year of the A3 model).

UPGRADABLE: FROM INFOTAINER TO NAVICEIVER
If the occasional use of sat nav apps via the smartphone is not enough, you can easily upgrade the Z-E3150 with the Z-EMAP50 navigation package, obtainable as an option, to a fully-fledged permanently installed in-car naviceiver. High resolution 3D maps with coverage for 47 European countries and more than 6.5 million Premium POIs, TMC, Text-to-Speech announcement of street names and a host of nav functions make this E>GO the perfect navigator. The maps can be updated for one year free of charge.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2018 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.

One for all: New EMPHASER Speakers for BMW

With the EM-BMW3FR1 component and the EM-BMW3FR2 coaxial EMPHASER now has two top class speakers in its product range that are easy to install in almost any BMW

One for all: New EMPHASER Speakers for BMW

EMPHASER loudspeakers for BMW

If you wish to treat yourself and your BMW to a new speaker system you will be faced with a bewildering choice. Finding a system on the aftermarket that not only produces a convincing sound but is also easy to install is no small undertaking. Two great sounding speakers developed specially for BMW that will convince you with their sound and innovative Plug & Play installation concept have just been added to the product range of the car audio specialist EMPHASER: the EM-BMW3FR1 2-way component unit, and the EM-BMW3FR2 coaxial unit. For lovers of powerful music there is also a pair of OE fit style high performance underseat subwoofers (EM-BMW3SUB).

CLEVER DESIGN
What is special about the new EMPHASERs? Instead of building different systems for different BMW models EMPHASER has designed its new coaxial and component units to fit into almost any current BMW – thanks to the innovative adaptive basket design. Two mounting adaptor rings perfectly suited for the three typical BMW installation variants are supplied with each kit: Simply fit the appropriate mounting ring to the bass or mid-range speaker of the component or coaxial system and install the speaker – finished!
The many years‘ experience of the EMPHASER developers is evident in the design of the new speakers. The low resonance plastic basket not only exhibits torsional stiffness but also increases the efficiency of the driver since the material has no influence on the magnetic field. Consequently more magnetic energy remains where it is needed: in the voice coil air gap. The voice coil is wound on a very light 25 mm aluminum former and firmly affixed to a Nomex spider carefully matched to the moving assembly.

HIGH QUALITY COMPONENTS, GREAT SOUND
The fiber glass cone of the component and coaxial systems offers excellent stability with high damping, making it ideal for dynamic music reproduction free of coloration.
The tweeter of the component system is thoroughly convincing as well. The light 25 mm titanium dome offers a low resonance frequency (Fs) and with it, extends the frequency reproduction for a lower crossover frequency. This provides better staging, whereas the high frequency range is linearized by the low dome weight and a special surround type.
As a tweeter for the coaxial system the 19 mm woven dome is ideal: Its good radiation pattern even at an angle is the best basis for optimal sound from the original installation position in the door. In addition, the diffuser supports staging, giving the sound even more atmosphere.

BASS POWER FOR BMW
The new speaker items for BMW are rounded off by the underseat subwoofer EM-BMW3SUB. The double layer magnet drive and the additional stiff fiberglass cone enable powerful reproduction of bass frequencies with low distortion even at high sound pressure levels. The vehicle-specific design and construction allow installation to be completed in a few minutes.
In many cases the original BMW subwoofer is permanently bonded with the enclosure, making it difficult to remove. The EMPHASER enclosure EM-BMW3SBC does away with such time consuming work. Simply remove the old woofer together with enclosure, and install the EMPHASER sub with its new EM-BMW3SBC housing – finished!

EMPHASER has been a name in the car audio sector for 25 years. The brand has become a well respected brand since middle of the 1990s for its enormously powerful subwoofers of the XTREME series, followed later by the series SPL, Linear-X, Neo-SPL and the state-of-the-art woofer E15NEO-COMP. The present range covers subwoofers, vehicle-specific Plug“N“Play component sets and classic lines of loudspeakers and amplifiers. For 2019 EMPHASER has announced a new series of amplifiers with integrated DSP and Bluetooth audio streaming of utterly compact dimensions, controlled by smartphone app.
EMPHASER products are distributed exclusively through Europe’s largest car media specialist, the Swiss ACR AG.

Small, Good, Nice Price: AXTON’s Subwoofer ATB120 Tested

The new AXTON compact woofer ATB120 has been awarded the ‚Price Tip‘ accolade from the German magazine Car & HiFi (issue 05/2018).

Small, Good, Nice Price: AXTON

Price Tip: AXTON’s bass box ATB120

Today a subwoofer for a car is expected to be as compact as possible so as to save space and remain inconspicuous when installed in the trunk or the trunk double bottom. But what about the bass performance of a small subwoofer? In issue 05/2018 the magazine Car & HiFi has thoroughly tested the new ATB120 compact woofer from car audio specialist AXTON – and is impressed. In the opinion of these tech journalists the ATB120 makes not only a „proper bass sound“, but also puts on a convincing show with its build quality and the fair price. This everyday compact woofer with a difference therefore gets the ‚Price Tip‘ accolade from Car & HiFi.
Enthusiastically the testers praise the many installation options of the new ATB120, which hardly restricts the usability of the trunk: „The new AXTON ATB120 is light enough to be lifted out of the trunk without any effort; and when onboard it is hardly noticeable. At 13.5 cm high the enclosure is very flat so that it can also be used in the trunk.“
The construction and workmanship of the new AXTON bass reflex box also impress the journalists. This is not only true for the ‚robust‘ 16 mm thick MDF enclosure with a reinforced acoustic baffle and generously sized reflex tunnel. „Together with the neatly made, quality felt cover we have nothing but praise for the build quality“, say the testers „and not just because of the affordable price.“
That goes also for the installed 20 cm woofer with fiber glass cone, 38 mm dual voice coil and large size magnet: „Instead of saving on the driver, AXTON has thankfully decided on a really expensive cone construction.“ But not only that: „Even the driver turns out fullsize and works with a thick ferrite ring.“
But does the ATB120 also produce decent bass? The tech journalists answer this with an emphatic ‚yes‘: „The little AXTON plays amazingly low down in the frequency basement and leaves no desire for more low bass if the music is a normal program of rock or out of the charts.“
The ATB120 scores with its power, and also with its sound quality: „The 20 cm woofer plays really cleanly, the bass never appears fuzzy or soggy. Fast bass lines are reproduced by the minnow with great agility and precision so that the sound quality is fully adequate even for discerning ears.“
„The AXTON ATB120 is a faithful everyday companion for music fans who simply just wish to have a decent bass“, is the final verdict of the tech journalists, awarding the new bass reflex box the ‚Price tip‘ accolade on account of its outstanding price/performance.

The brand AXTON has been popular with car enthusiasts for almost 30 years. AXTON’s products are regularly recognized in trade magazines for their high price performance ratio. The range includes amplifiers and various loudspeakers for car retrofitting: component and coaxial systems, bass boxes, and also compact under seat woofers.

ZENEC Z-E2060: Top Entertainer with Sat Nav Option for VW T5

ZENEC Z-E2060 for VW T5

Convenient and affordable retrofitting of multimedia and navigation functions for VW T5 Multivan and T5 California vehicles – with the Z-E2060 of the E>GO model range. Brought out by the Swiss multimedia specialist ZENEC, the Z-E2060 is a versatile infotainer that integrates perfectly into T5 based VW vehicles. High end sound, enthralling pictures and films, optimal DAB+ radio reception, and clever smartphone integration – ZENEC’s new E>GO makes every trip in the popular VW Bully successor even more entertaining. Also for those looking for a comfortable sat nav, the Z-2060 is the intelligent solution: With the Z-EMAP50 sat nav package available as an optional package, the infotainer can be extended to become a well equipped naviceiver.

PERFECT UPGRADE FOR THE VW T5
ZENEC’s new naviceiver stands for premium quality and premium components, designed for perfect system integration into the VW T5. Appearance, fit, electrical connections – the Z-E2060 has been developed uncompromisingly for the following T5 transporters (build years from 2010 to 2015): the VW T5 Multivan Comfortline, PanAmericana, Highline, Edition25, BlueMotion, Match, Special, Business and Caravelle as well as the VW T5 California, Comfortline and Europe.
The Z-E2060 is optimally integrated into the VW electrical system, being connected via the CAN bus to the steering wheel remote control, multifunction display (MFA+, MFA), Climatronic status display and the the optical parking system (OPS). These comfort functions can therefore be readily used as normal.

QUICK RESPONSE TOUCHSCREEN
From the capacitive 16.5 cm / 6.5″ display it is possible to control the new T5 E>GO precisely and completely intuitively. The touchscreen responds to to just a light touch.
The display is impressive not just because it is easy to use: the images presented on the display screen also convince with color brilliance, high brightness level and large contrast range.

With the versatile entertainment functions of the Z-E2060 you get a totally new music and video experience. Beside a CD/DVD drive the T5 specialist offers two USB ports for connecting USB media, iPod or iPhone.
A powerful 4 x 45 watt amplifier, the 10-band graphic equalizer and the DSP based 5-channel time alignment make for the best possible sound, and allows for comprehensive sound tuning. Whether driving away on vacation or to work – boredom on board will at any rate not arise!

OPTIMAL SMARTPHONE PARTNER
The Z-E2060 can use smartphones in the T5 in many ways, not only for telephoning with the hands-free system or music streaming via Bluetooth. Direct USB connections to the Z-E2060 are also available for Android smartphones – the apps are all mirrored on the display of the E>GO using the SmartLink function. The apps can then be controlled directly from the touchscreen of the Z-E2060, allowing the functions of the mobile phones to be fully exploited in the vehicle – including the comfortable use of navigation apps.

UPGRADABLE: FROM INFOTAINER TO NAVICEIVER
If using smartphone sat nav apps for occasional navigation is not enough, you can upgrade the Z-E2060 to a full-function naviceiver by purchasing the optional Z-EMAP50 navigation package. This includes the latest ZENEC NextGen navigation software on 16 GB microSD card, containing 3D maps of 47 EU countries, more than 6.5 million points of interest, Lane Assist function and TMC – together with free map updates for one year.
In combination with the sat nav software package the Z-E2060 is turned into a perfect navigation system, offering many advantages in everyday use.

Added to that are accessory components like rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.

Price tip: XZENT’s new 2-DIN infotainers X-422 and X-222

„Superb entertainment package at a sensational price“, is the verdict of the German Car & HiFi magazine (issue 05/2018) about XZENT’s multimedia systems, awarding it the ‚Price tip‘ accolade.

Price tip: XZENT

Price tip: XZENT X-422 and X-222

Launched in early summer, the two 2-DIN DAB+ infotainers X-422 and X-222 from multimedia specialist XZENT have now been thoroughly tested by the German Car & HiFi magazine in issue 05/2018. After an in-depth check out in a major test, both these systems were able to put up an all-round convincing performance. „Superb entertainment package at a sensational price“, is the verdict of the critical tech journalists on these new multimedia systems, awarding them the ‚Price tip‘ accolade to account for the outstanding price/performance.

WITH OR WITHOUT SAT NAV
With the X-422 and X-222 there are two moniceivers on the test bench that are identical as far as features and design are concerned. The only difference is: With its integrated GPS receiver the X-422 can easily be upgraded to become a fully-fledged naviceiver. For 99 euros you get the navigation package for cars with Europe-wide 3D navigation on a microSD card. And for just under 200 euros there is the motorhome variant, which allows vehicle parameters such as vehicle height and weight to be entered as well as providing an additional camping POI database. „Together with the optional navigation software the XZENT X-422 forms a completely equipped infotainment system at a very attractive price“ say the Car & Hifi testers.

SUPERB SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION
But even without the sat nav package comfortable navigation is still possible with either of these XZENT systems – with the aid of a compatible Android smartphone: „This is because the X-222 as well as the X-422 has Easy Connect“, the journalists explain. „With a suitable phone connected to one of the two USB ports at the rear you can mirror smartphone apps on the monitor of the car radio and control them via its touchscreen. This works just as well with the music player or Spotify as with Google Maps or other apps.“

SUPERB ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE
The journalists are also convinced by the versatile media section of the two XZENT infotainers. Beside an FM tuner to receive classic radio programs, the systems are equipped with a DAB+ tuner that scored with the testers for „comfortable station search, Service Following and MOT Slideshow“.
With two USB ports the moniceivers are well equipped for audio and video playback. Then there is the option for comfortable use of the mobile phone in the vehicle: „The devices also work together brilliantly with smartphones using a Bluetooth wireless connection to telephone and hear music.“ There is an HDMI interface for the connection of multimedia devices or mobile phones with an HDMI output.

COMFORTABLE OPERATION
Car & HiFi particularly praise the ease of use of both systems, that have a large capacitive 6.5″/16.5 cm touchscreen together with a practical rotary volume control and sensor buttons: „The menus are clearly laid out, the touchscreen reacts promptly, and as a result overall control is smooth and intuitive“, according to the well-respected tech journalists.
In conclusion, the testers attest to the versatile multimedia functions paired with ease of use and trouble-free in-vehicle integration of both systems, awarding them the ‚Price tip‘ accolade.

XZENT is a young brand that is focused exclusively on the „In-car Navigation and Multimedia“ sector. XZENT is the specialist for multimedia and navigation systems. As regards build quality and the range of features XZENT moni- and naviceivers are second to none and, with their sensational price/performance, are convincing right down the line.
XZENT products are now firmly established in the market – this is also demonstrated by the many awards and impressive test reports appearing in the trade press in recent years for XZENT devices.
XZENT products are distributed worldwide exclusively through the extensive ACR AG dealer network, Europe’s largest car media specialists. Among the ACR dealers you will also find a large range of accessories for XZENT systems: rear-view cameras, DAB+ and DVB-T tuners, and monitors as well as speakers and amplifiers.

Top Entertainer for the Car: XZENT Multimedia System X-222

XZENT X-222: 2-DIN multimedia system

Originally a hot tip, the XZENT moni- and naviceivers are now among the top sellers Europe-wide, and are awarded accolades by the trade press for their outstanding price/performance. With the X-222 (retail price 299 euros) XZENT has now brought out a new 2-DIN multimedia system. True to the slogan „high quality at an amazingly reasonable price“, the X-222 impresses with its great visual design, modern entertainment, uncomplicated in-car integration, and easy operation.

COMFORTABLE AND VERSATILE
That the X-222 is a really comfortable device to use, is revealed by the clear layout of the front, combining a large 16.5 cm/6.5″ touchscreen with four sensor buttons, and a practical volume control knob. The capacitive display reacts to just a light touch – a fingertip is enough. The strong brightness of the high resolution display, its crystal clear transparency, brilliant colors, and large contrast range ensure good readability even in difficult light conditions – a perfect platform for media content playback.

MULTIMEDIA SPECIALIST
Beside the receiver for the analog FM radio, the X-222 has a DAB+ tuner for digital radio enjoyment. Equipped with DAB Service Following, DLS text, and the display of slideshows, the outstanding reception and great ease of use of this tuner make it convincing. For multimedia playback the X-222 offers two USB ports supporting all the usual audio and video file formats, including FLAC and WAV. In addition, there is a microSD card reader and an HDMI interface for the connection of multimedia devices or smartphones with an HDMI output.

SMARTPHONES – OPTIMAL USE
With the powerful Bluetooth unit of the X-222 you can not only phone safely while on the move but also stream music in comfort. And it gets even better. Android smartphones can be connected to one of the USB ports. The Easy Connect function mirrors the smartphone apps, including sat nav apps, on the display of the X-222 so that they can then be comfortably controlled via touchscreen.
The second USB port provides for the connection of iOS based mobile devices, and supports the Made for iPod/iPhone functionality.

SMART DETAILS
The X-222 has two RCA inputs for connecting two cameras (front/rear or rear/rear). A practical feature here is the CAM button at the front that enables a direct manual control access to the camera system. This enables you to quickly switch to the camera image when driving ahead. For optimal in-car integration the illumination of the four sensor buttons of the X-222 can be adjusted to match the color of the cockpit instrument illumination for the particular vehicle.

The brand Zenec stands for pure in-car multimedia. Moniceivers, naviceivers, roof mount and universal monitors sum to a well rounded portfolio of in-car products. Added to that are accessory components like DAB+-tuners, rear view cameras and headphones. All Zenec devices are perfectly compatible with one another.
The Zenec multimedia range is perceived to follow the edge of technology, but also to stand out with an exceptional price/performance value. Yet, quality before quantity is the other important maxim given, Zenec is strictly adhering to.
In 2008, Zenec brought the first E>GO model onto the market, thereby immediately establishing a completely new category of device: the vehicle-specific naviceiver. E>GOs are a perfect fit – visually and technically – in the respective target vehicle, without additional bezels, adapters and hours of installation work. With the new line up 2017 there are E>GOs to fit into over 60 models of vehicle.
Few car media brands have ever started out as successfully as Zenec. Today, Zenec has established itself as undisputed market leader for multimedia navigation and spots – according to the Association for Consumer Research (Gfk) – in the German speaking territories a market share in excess of 35%.

Compact and good value – the new AXTON subwoofer ATB216

The new AXTON bass boxr ATB216 has been awarded the the „Price Tip“ accolade from Car & Hifi magazine (issue 1/2018).

Compact and good value - the new AXTON subwoofer ATB216

AXTON’s bandpass subwoofer ATB216

It’s hard to find a car driver who wants to drive through the district with a huge subwoofer box clogging up the complete trunk. A lot of bass fans therefore avoid that with a mini subwoofer – only to find quite often that they are then disappointed by the poor performance. With the new AXTON ATB216 bandpass box, Car & Hifi magazine (issue 1/2018) has now tested a compact subwoofer that they found convincing regarding bass performance and dimensions. Awarded the „Price Tip“ accolade, the ATB216 is the best subwoofer that one can buy for 149 euros.

Car audio specialist AXTON has long been well-known for cleverly constructed subwoofer boxes true to the motto „minimum size, maximum power“. In this respect the new ATB216 is no exception: according to the Car & Hifi testers, it demonstrates „how to get really good bass out of a small volume.“

Only 25.5 cm high and deep, the ATB216 integrates with a sloping rear wall without any trouble, hardly taking up any space in the trunk. The trade journalists praise not only the „robust and compact“ construction of the bandpass housing, but also the intelligent design with two „well made, potent“ 16 cm woofers. „With two 16ers you can really let it rip, especially when they are so solidly built like the AXTON drivers“, is the judgment of the testers. A fat, 25-mm thick magnet ring provides the power, and the generous winding height of the voice-coil wire enables an impressive 6 mm linear stroke in each direction.“

The bass box was also thoroughly convincing in the test lab: „It’s nice to see the good sensitivity of 88 dB, which is very satisfying even with small power amps. (…) One can therefore say that the the ATB216 has achieved a very successful balance.“
In the sound check the new AXTON bandpass profiles as a subwoofer that „does everything right“ is the expert opinion: „It plays cleanly and gives bass drums their full punch“, was the decision of the Car & Hifi testers on the performance of the ATB216. „The sound is full and powerful. Its sound level capability, however, is among the best, which is surprising considering the size. The unit delivers a really fat pressure that shakes the mirrors.“

That the ATB216 passed the test with flying colors not only reinforces the major „Price Tip“ accolade, but also underlines the final judgment of the trade journalists: „One can only describe the ATB216 as a big hit. It makes itself inconspicuous in the trunk, while delivering full bass pressure. The whole thing at just 150 euros is also really good value.“
