Back to its true and original pure sound
It all started by the encounter with an acoustic engineer.
The AdPower series is the product that improves airflow in car and motorbike engines.
The AdPower Sonic is born as a result of the encounter with Mr. Morimoto, the AdPower user and the chief recording engineer for avex inc. Mr. Morimoto is originally a big fan of AdPower for cars.
The project has been started by contacting Mr. Morimoto to AdPower if it could be commercialized for acoustic use. The idea is from when he tried to attach AdPower for car to the bass-reflex port of a studio speaker, then he was very surprised by its change of sound quality.
prime sound studio form chief engineer
Vice-Chairman, Japan Association of Recording Engineers
I started the recording business in 1985 in Japan and also worked in LA a few months a year. Through this experience, what I felt the most while traveling back and forth between Japan and LA was the unique Japanese sound. My impression of Japanese sound is the low frequencies are poor sound sharpness and the overall sound speed is slow. Even though I worked in various countries after that, but my impression of the Japanese sound has not changed.
I established Prime sound studio form with all my know-how in 2002, which is my current home base. The studio has been designed to achieve the aim “Approaching the sound of foreign countries”. As a result, the studio is able to offer very good sound, but unfortunately, is not able to go out of the Japanese sound category. Some people say it is due to the dry air or the difference in power supply, but there is not much difference to the sound in dry winter and humid rainy season from the recording engineers’ point of view. Also, the sound of unplugged instruments has the same kind of “Japanese sound”, so I think the power supply use or seasons are not a major cause. Based on those experiences, I concluded that there are differences in sound due to differences in the land in my personal opinion.
However, I experienced the effects of AdPower this time, I felt the sound became a little closer and crisp, clear to the “overseas sound” as if I was in an overseas such as LA, NY or London. I conducted various experiments during the development of this product and were surprised to find that the effect of static electricity on sound is beyond imagination, and that it is effective on all kinds of acoustic equipment and instruments.
Verification at AIST
‘AdPower Sonic’ was developed as a dedicated audio product based on the static electricity removal technology developed for the patented AdPower series for vehicles.
Sound source analysis at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) has found that IACC tends to increase when AdPower Sonic is attached.
The sound localization is increased by applying the AdPower Sonic, and the sound reaching our ears is perceived as clearer.※

What is IACC.
Abbreviation for Inter Aural Correlation Coefficient, an indicator of sound spread (diffusivity).
Impulse response analysis and sound source analysis were conducted using speakers (Genelec 8020C, YAMAHA MS101III) in an anechoic room, soundproof room and living room. In an anechoic room, there was no difference whether AdPower Sonic was applied or not, but in soundproof rooms and living rooms, it was confirmed that IACC tended to increase when AdPower Sonic was applied. Five different sound sources were used, including jazz, classical and natural sounds, but there were no differences between these, and a trend towards increased IACC was confirmed in all of them.

How to attach to speaker
With bass reflex port
The maximum effect is achieved by attaching it to areas where there is air flow is, so the bass reflex port is the first recommended position for speakers. By attaching AdPower Sonic to the port, the air flow in the port is improved and the force restricting the movement of the unit (air resistance) is weakened, resulting in a high-resolution sound change. Some speakers may have more than one port but apply the AdPower Sonic evenly to all of them.
Without bass reflex port
For sealed speakers without a bass reflex port, affix to the surface where the speaker unit is installed which is the baffle surface. The recommended position depends on the speaker unit configuration and placement, so decide after temporarily attaching in various positions and check to the sound. In some cases, further effects may be expected by attaching to the baffle surface after already attaching to the bass reflex port.

Enjoy a higher grade of sound quality in your car!
By installing the AdPower Sonic S in your car audio system, you can enjoy a clearer, more localized sound in your car.※
We have received comments from people who have actually installed the AdPower Sonic S in their car audio system and commented: ‘The clarity of the sound has improved. ‘, ‘It is easier to hear the sound of connected Youtube.’ ‘It is easier to hear vocal voices.’
*There are differences in the way the sound is heard depending on the individual and the model.
I use the factory car audio system. Recently, I often listen to YouTube radio while driving, but since it is not a high spec radio, the clarity of the audio is often low and I have to turn up the volume to understand the content. By using Adpower, the clarity of the audio is improved and it is much easier to listen to the content.
