C&L Aviation Group has installed a Bongiovi speakerless audio system in the cabin of an Embraer 135 regional jet, which according to the MRO provider is the first such installation in the type. Using Bongiovi’s patented digital power station technology coupled with transducers, the system uses the interior panels of an aircraft as speakers to create what it calls an immersive sound.
“C&L are experts in modifying and improving regional aircraft like the ERJ-135/145, making them the ideal choice for a project like this one,” said Bongiovi Aviation managing partner Rob Hamelink. “C&L has been a great partner of ours for several years and we look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
The Bongiovi system is standard equipment on the HondaJet Elite and the soon-to-be-in-production Gulfstream G700. It has also been installed as a retrofit on a Dassault Falcon 7X and other business aircraft.
