Rockford electronics firm to begin production of subwoofer

Posted Jan. 13, 2014 @ 4:18 pm

ROCKFORD – Prescient Audio‘s ThinDriver, a thinner, lighter and more powerful subwoofer, finally goes into production in February.

The technology has been a few years in the making. Prescient Audio founder Paul Niederman introduced it locally when the idea took third in the EIGERlab’s 2012 Fast Pitch competition.

Then in January 2013, Niederman showed the ThinDriver off at the International CES in Las Vegas and it impressed enough to win a Design and Engineering Award.

Prescient Audio has been perfecting the manufacturing process and will be moving to a plant at 4904 Colt Road to begin production Feb. 3.

At this year’s CES, which took place last week, Prescient Audio announced three new products using its ThinDriver Techology.

-The Apollo AudioCase is a smartphone case featuring the ThinDriver technology. It was developed in conjunction with Product Development Technologies Inc. of Lake Zurich.

-The Dual Subwoofer uses the smaller speakers to have two speakers in a traditional sized cabinet.

-Subwoofer In-Wall Cabinet, which allows you to use the thinner speakers to put subwoofers between standard wall joists or under furniture for in-home theaters.

Prescient Audio will introduce a fourth new product at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the EIGERlab, 605 Fulton Ave.
