Bongiovi Acoustics Digital Power Station (DPS)™ is a revolutionary way to listen to music in your car. You may not realize it, but the inside of your car is what acoustical engineers refer to as a "hostile environment"; the seats, window glass, road and wind noise and imperfect speaker placement all affect the quality of your music. The Bongiovi Acoustics DPS is able to overcome these barriers and produce amazing, studio-quality sound in your car at a fraction of the cost of upgrading all the components.
Our engineers have worked closely with the dedicated team from Bongiovi Acoustics, including Tony Bongiovi himself—more on him later— spending hundreds of hours fine-tuning the profile specific to each vehicle. Applicable for all Scion audio systems, the DPS is seamlessly integrated into your factory stereo. A small DPS badge on the head unit is the only indication your car's stereo has this secret weapon installed. Once you hear how much it can improve the quality of sound, you won't want anything else.

How it works...
The patented DPS technology analyzes the audio signal from the head unit, then digitally re-masters and optimizes it specifically for playback in your vehicle—all in real time! DPS works by extending the frequency response of the speakers and routing the enhanced audio signal through a 4-channel digital amplifier.
Bongiovi Acoustics DPS installation consists of a wire harness, and the module itself is contained in a box about the size of a 1980's cell phone. Amazingly, there is room behind the dash for it!
The best part is that the DPS will improve the sound quality of any digital source— those compressed MP3 files will truly come to life! The method of integration allows you to make adjustments to Bass, Treble, Fade and Balance, and to change your Scion Sound Processor (SSP) settings.
