Visteon and Boston Acoustics to complement 2010 Camaro with sophisticated premium audio

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich., Aug. 12, 2008 — Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) and Boston Acoustics will deliver refined performance in the audio system that accents the redesigned 2010 Chevrolet Camaro – a performance car that embodies the passion of the past and present.

The two companies are engineering a premium audio system for the Camaro’s re-launch that is tailored to suit the Camaro’s legacy – starting with precision speaker design. Boston Acoustics, creator of The Boston Sound for home stereo systems, is engineering speakers for the Camaro that are robust enough to handle high power and loud play, yet capable of reproducing the finest acoustic details. Powering those speakers is Visteon’s high performance and state of the art, DSP amplifier. From there, audio integration engineers from Visteon and Boston Acoustics carefully tailor the equalization to the Camaro’s specific interior configurations to accurately reproduce the Boston Sound within the vehicle – transforming the vehicle into an acoustically ideal soundstage. Fabrics, seat placement and instrument panel materials are just a few of the many variables considered when fine-tuning the quality of sound reproduction for the vehicle’s interior.

Offered as an option, the premium Boston Acoustics audio system will allow consumers to hearken back to glory days of Motown or experience the pulsation of today’s techno music with digital-signal-processing enhanced sound quality that was unheard of until now.

“Visteon is honored to play such an important role in the redesign of a true classic,” said Julie Fream, vice president, Visteon GM customer group. “Using advanced automotive audio technologies, Visteon and Boston Acoustics are creating a polished, dimensional sound stage that will provide as powerful an impact as the re-introduction of this iconic vehicle. This is truly a sports car for the 21st century.”

“We are pleased that GM has introduced The Boston Sound to its vehicle in North America, and we know that the Camaro and Boston Acoustics will make beautiful music together,” said Michael J. Maloney, president of D&M Holdings OEM, Global Marketing Group, which includes the Boston Acoustics brand. “As consumers raise their expectations for great sound in their vehicles, Boston Acoustics is ready to meet those demands,” he said.
