the great change for cars that LG proposes

  • 9

Car speakers take up a lot of space, or so LG says. By the first half of 2023, the South Korean company wants to start marketing speakers that occupy approximately 10% compared to current speakers. No more speaker grills, no wasted space in the doors due to the surface they occupy, and they can be placed in different areas to create 3D sound. Of course, the idea looks good.


Ultra-compact speakers that can be placed anywhere

The traditional speakers implemented in cars, have a system of cone, magnet and coil, needing grid and a not inconsiderable space to occupy. LG has proposed a rather curious solution: speakers that occupy just like a wallet, and that transmit audio through the vibration of their panels.

The panel is only 2.5mm thick, measuring 150mm x 90mm. This compact size would allow the panels to be located anywhere in the car, not only at the doors, but scattered throughout different locations in the vehicle. The weight is only 30 grams per sheet, so they would also mean a significant leap in the distribution of masses when creating a car.

This is how the work of tuning a car's sound system has evolved

LG promises that by vibrating these panels and “other body elements”, surround 3D sound can be achieved, with rich quality. This type of technology is not entirely new, as it currently there are televisions with vibrating panels to emit sound.

The big question that arises is how the degradation will work in these cases. Car speakers tend to suffer a lot over the years, and betting on simpler mechanisms (with fewer elements) can be a good solution to avoid component wear.

This technology will be fully displayed at CES in Las Vegas, which will be held next January. lg wants start marketing this solution from the first half of the yearso it is ready for operation.
