who: Sonic Impact Technologies LLC (SIT) is a recently formed Limited Liability Corporation focusing on the development and enhancement of technology related to sound and wireless technology and their uses in the commercial and private markets.
The specific reason for forming SIT is to bring to the general marketplace new products and enhancements of existing products as they relate to the technology of NXT flat panel sound, new developments in sound circuitry and unique applications of wireless technology. Utilising a combination of proprietary and existing technology and applications, the company has created and/or enhanced a number of products that have already been developed and tested for the commercial and private marketplace. Through its web site (www.si-5.com), the company has introduced the first and exclusive portable battery powered flat speaker to the market.
what: the SoundpaX portable system consists of ‘flat-pack’ cardboard speakers. Sonic has designed a digitally amplified, totally portable battery-powered flat panel speaker set with full surround-sound simulation. The purpose of the product is to provide compact speakers for portable CD players.
eco-friendly & high-tech: (almost totally) bio-degradable, lightweight and easily transportable, SoundpaX speakers fold flat and can be pulled out and set up in seconds. The three panels of each speaker radiate sound in a full 360 degree radius. SoundpaX is the result of research and development performed by scientists based at the British audio technology company NXT. Instead of using pistons, the revolutionary sound surface technology enables flat surfaces to be turned into loudspeakers. A motor (or exciter) drives force into a panel and vibrates it, radiating sound. The material, its shape, the motor used, and how everything is combined are governed by very complex rules of physics. The system includes an ultra high efficiency Class "T" amp that is fully portable and has a power output of up to 15 watts per channel. The speakers are fully compatible with standard amplification.
