intro

Audiotec Fischer the company

Audiotec Fischer was established by Heinz Fischer in 1990. since then, the company has developed from a niche supplier to a world market leader meeting high approval worldwide for its excellent car hi-fi products.

The basic concepts of “handmade” and “made in Germany” have always played an important role at Audiotec Fischer from the very beginning. More than 30 years of experience

– first in the development of home high-end and then in mobile audio – are reflected in the great innovation and constant attention to detail. The company is headquartered in schmallenberg, in the idyllically mountainous surroundings of sauerland in Germany.

The company places a particularly strong focus on the development of new products, the production of current series and an unrivaled exemplary quality assurance, which forms the foundation for success and highlights Audiotec Fischer’s philosophy. The impressive response from car audio customers, many different awards and prizes in Germany and from abroad and, not least, business partners in more than

50 countries around the world speaks for itself.

Most of the suppliers, who, like Audiotec Fischer, are certified according to Din en isO 9001:2008, are also located in

Germany and many are even in the same region. close proximity and direct communication support optimally planned processes and make for high-quality, excellent results.

Products

After the company was formed in 1990, Audiotec Fischer already celebrated internationally sensational success just a short time later with the invention of the power stabilizer. The first Brax amplifier, which is still considered as a reference model among amplifiers today, was then introduced in 1996.

Two years later, the launch of the HeLiX amplifiers followed.

A particular highlight was and still is today the adjustable damping factor, which was developed for a mono amplifier in

1999 and only available from Audiotec Fischer.

The H series, which are among the most successful amplifiers of them all (H400/500/1000), were launched on the market in 1998 and 1999. The legendary HXA 400 was completely overhauled and “reborn” as the state-of-the-art

H 400X. its successful flat design has kept it natural. in 2004, the A and B series introduced a new technology that gives this amplifier generation incredibly audiophile sound properties. it wasn’t surprising, then, that the “A6” 6-channel amp won the eisA Award 2005/2006.

The XXL Power station stands for the successful advanced development of the original power caps that the company started off with. With significantly more features and excellent technology, the XXL has set the standards for a new generation of power stabilizers since 2007.

in addition to amplifiers and loudspeakers, the AAc, the AFc and the cAP33 make up part of a revolutionary, efficient accessories program. since 2009, HeLiX has also offered plug

& play systems that are able to transform any vehicle into a concert hall in no time at all.

You don’t have real music-listening enjoyment until you have the right bass sound and that gutbusting feeling in the pit of your stomach. And that’s something the new blue subwoofers can do with incredible ease. rich deep bass sound and high, undistorted maximum sound pressures are the guarantee. And as if that were not enough: thanks to their new dual voice coils with an impedance of 2 x 2 ohms, all the woofers now allow much greater freedom in system configuration

(see diagram on the right).

The easiest way to pack the bass you want into an existing car audio system is to integrate an active subwoofer. And in that case, HeLiX has two real high-tech highlights to offer, in addition to the small sized DB 8A, the problem solver for compact cars. The brand-new B 8DsP and B 12DsP subwoofers are equipped with cutting-edge DsP technology that opens up possibilities that were never possible before. You will find a detailed description of these subwoofers in the section entitled “insight” in this catalog.

“never change a winning team” – this was the motto behind the advanced development of the new esprit components and coaxial loudspeakers. And that’s why we concentrated on giving the exceptional sound properties of this series a new, more subtle look. The fiberglass cones that shimmers elegantly in grey and black and the new closed grilles are both convincing promise of what these high-end loudspeaker systems have to deliver.

Woven fiberglass

Fiberglass is a high-quality fiber-plastic compound whose mechanical properties make it the ideal material for loudspeakers.

It combines low weight with high failure strain and an exceptional resistance to adverse environmental influences. Its woven structure delivers the necessary stability of the diaphragms with high inner damping to provide immunity to resonances at the same time. The results: powerful, unadulterated sound quality at the highest level.

The new esprit subwoofers really come into play when space is scarce but the desire for rich bass sound is at the top of the list.

Although the black fiberglass coating on the outside is the only thing that makes them look different to their predecessors, what’s on the inside is completely new. Dual voice coils with an impedance of 2 x 2 ohms predestine them for use in compact, sealed enclosures with the best in impulse response. Their extremely flat structural shape allows for forms never dreamed of before for the enclosure design.

This is the recipe for success for the particularly flat precision amplifiers, which, thanks to their sophisticated processor control, don’t get their feathers ruffled in any situation. improved again and again over the years, these powerhouses with the characteristic, transparent enclosure covers have reached a sound level that is unrivalled, not only in the value-for-money category.

In the precision and competition lines, Audiotec Fischer uses only diaphragms made of sisal fiber manufactured in an elaborate production process. The mechanical advantages of sisal, such as high stability and inner damping, are combined in an ideal way with lowest weight. No wonder that the woofers equipped with sisal diaphragms display uniquely dynamic characteristics regarding fidelity, lowest distortion and high sensitivity, at the same time with a linear frequency response.

Focusing on what’s most important – this was the basic prerequisite in the development of our Pc user interface, which is more or less identical for all the HeLiX DsP devices. Whether it’s the PP50

DsP, the P-DsP or the c-DsP – apart from the differences in the range of features provided, the operation of these systems couldn’t be easier. The clearly structured presentation on just three screens without any sub-menus is self-explanatory in many cases and quick and easy to learn.

However, anyone looking for the “sound gimmicks” offered by some processors will be disappointed here. each individual function serves one purpose and one purpose only – to get the best possible sound out of the loudspeakers and to compensate for the acoustic shortcomings of the vehicle in the best way possible.

Welcome at the pinnacle of sonic performance!

The competition series reflects all Audiotec Fischer’s know-how and long years of experience in the development of high-end products. A perfect synthesis of innovative technologies, unbridled power and unique musical ability was created here. refined in terms of design and production down to the smallest detail and optimized for maximum longevity, every single product in the competition line defines the benchmark that the competition has to meet.

Professional

Music stimulates emotions – the art of music reproduction lies in appealing to all the senses at the same time and in giving the audience that well-known “goose bumps” feeling. There’s often just a fine line that decides whether it happens or not. And it’s exactly these fine details that distinguish a very good car audio system from what the competition loudspeakers and amplifiers are able to do, namely to reproduce music as if the musicians were playing directly in front of the audience. nothing is added, nothing is left out – something that sounds so easy but which actually requires a lot of effort to achieve. With the competition products, Audiotec Fischer demonstrates once again that even this challenge wasn’t one that couldn’t be beaten.

AccessOries

Original factory-installed car radios have one big disadvantage, as a rule; they are not equipped with a pre-amp out to drive external amplifiers. But now, thanks to the HeLiX high-low converter, that no longer has to mean “the end” for cranking up the power and performance. They generate a clean pre-amp signal from the loudspeaker signal along with a remote signal to switch on the output stages. This creates the foundation for perfect HeLiX sound in virtually any vehicle.

Audiotec Fischer stands not only for “Made in Germany” right from the beginning. it is also a guarantee for unique concepts and technologies of the very finest. The goal of every innovation is to not only improve the products in terms of sound quality and reliability, but to further simplify the operation and installation at the same time. Audiotec Fischer knows how to adapt its products to the rapidly changing requirements in the vehicle better than any other manufacturer. The technologies explained in the following are only a few of the examples.

DsP is not the same as

DsP – the processor quality depends to a large extent on how precisely the music signal is processed internally.

The more complex the sound manipulation options are, the higher the signal processing resolution has to be. Without this precision, you end up with quantification noise and distortion. That’s why Audiotec Fischer uses only pure audio DsPs that have been developed specifically for this purpose and, thanks to their high resolution of 56 bits, are much superior to conventional multimedia DsPs in terms of sound reproduction.

Load setups using a Microsd card

All our amplifiers with integrated DsP technology and the

P-DsP and c-DsP signal processors offer the option of simply uploading either vehicle-specific set ups (provided by Audiotec Fischer) or creating your own configurations

(using our Pc tool) via the MicrosD card.

thewaythatitallworksisincrediblyeasy:

• copy the desired setup onto any MicrosD or MicrosDHc memory card (memory requirement max. 200 kB).

• insert the memory card into the amplifier/signal processor and switch it on. After approx. 5 to 10 sec., the download will have finished and the card can be removed.

• You’re done!

McM (Multiphase current Mode) switched power supply technology makes powerful Dc/Dc voltage converters more compact than ever before. A 400-watt power supply, for example, can be fitted onto a space of only 14 cm² on the PcB. separate cooling is not required due to an impressive sensitivity of approx. 96%.

The output voltage remains completely stable, even at input voltages of only 6 volts. An ideal prerequisite for use in vehicles equipped with the start/stop function.

curve for the output power depending on the supply voltage

Advantages of McM technology:

• 100% constant output voltage independent of the supply voltage and the load

• extremely high sensitivity of approx. 96% – which means there is virtually no cooling needed for the power supply components

• switching frequency (350 - 450 kHz) considerably farther away from the audio frequency band than for conventional switched power supplies (30 - 40 kHz)

• Most minimal power requirements optimize the overall sensitivity of the amplifier

• Full start/stop capability (from a supply power of 6 volts)

• Drastically reduced footprint on the PcB enables particularly compact designs

"state-of-the-art" technology

DsP technology leverages not only the plug & play amplifiers to unforeseen possibilities in terms of sound manipulation; it also drives the new B 8DsP and B 12DsP subwoofers to new heights of sound performance. Highly developed signal processing using

56-bit processors ensure that previously incompatible acoustic properties suddenly become reality.

intelligence outdoes size every time – thanks to the innovative signal processing in our amplifiers and the B 8DsP / B12DsP active subwoofers, it is possible to produce powerful, punchy, undistorted bass sound even in comparatively small systems. To get these results, the music signal for the woofer is divided into two or more frequency ranges steeply separated from one another. each range is monitored by a separate limiter to actively prevent overloading the loudspeaker connected. The lower frequency range is varied digitally so that the woofer can be operated optimally in every frequency range up to its performance limits without exceeding those limits.

“Digital Dynamic Bass Processing” is so complex in its application that Audiotec Fischer is the only manufacturer who can adapt it individually and precisely to the components used.

Frequency response of the B 12DsP against input power

two hearts beating in a single breast

Listening tastes are bound to differ, especially when it comes to bass sound. some people like a really punchy bass in the upper range, while others prefer a very balanced sound with good bass depth. The new B 8DsP and B 12DsP active woofers will make everyone happy because adjusting the sound to your personal tastes is just a switch away.

“Four instead of two” – the 4-channel preamp input

in contrast to other active subwoofers, the B 8DsP and

B 12DsP are equipped with a 4-channel loudspeaker input. This is the only way to guarantee that the levels between the subwoofer and the other loudspeakers remain the same when the fader or balance settings are adjusted for the radio. To keep the connection process as easy as possible, Audiotec Fischer also optionally offers a special cable, which, in connection with the 70 different plug & play adapters, allows for a particularly easy hookup to virtually any OeM car radio. This cable can also be used to supply the subwoofer with power if there is no power source in the trunk.
