Emotional moments in the vehicle interior

We are your expert for interior sound

KENDRION offers customer-specific solutions for the vehicle interior. For this purpose we supply structure-borne sound actuators with or without control unit.
The electrodynamic drive of the actuator transforms the body structure or the windshield into a sound converter in order to enhance the sound of smaller engines in the vehicle interior and thus increase the driving pleasure. 

The sound actuator offers a compact solution for both interior sound reinforcement and the smallest possible installation space. The KENDRION Sound Actuator not only enhances the conventional engine sound but also provides a completely new, unmistakable sound for hybrid and electric vehicles.
