In turn, a amplifier drives a doorway speakers to cancel a strange sound signal.

ASC is a associated record designed to urge a engine sound peculiarity by creation a sound vigour spin some-more linear as a engine revs increase. Typically, engine sound doesn’t boost in a linear approach with rising revs; instead there can be many resonances that emanate peaks and valleys in a sound vigour spin and an disproportionate sound. ASC helps well-spoken out a engine sound by formulating a same-phase or reverse-phase sound vigilance as indispensable and promulgation it to a speakers. Though a component offers advantages from idle to redline, it creates a largest disproportion in a operation between 1000 and 2000 rpm, where it lowers a sound vigour spin with a reverse-phase audio signal.

The RLX Sport Hybrid Technology difficulty facilities a Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, engineered privately for a RLX by Panasonic and mythological recording operative Elliot Scheiner to reconstruct a romantic knowledge we feel when we suffer a live performance. The system’s hardware matches a peculiarity of recording studio equipment, and facilities high appetite loudness and modernized orator technology. It includes a single-disc CD player, AM/FM/HD/XM/HDD and delivers detailed, well-balanced sound to all seating positions

The system’s 14 speakers are precisely located around a RLX cabin. Six titanium-domed tweeters are decorated in a interiors; twin nearby a A-pillars, twin in a back doors, and twin some-more on a back deck. A 3.1-inch super energetic operation orator is centered in a tip of a instrument panel, and 6 immeasurable 6.7-inch super-dynamic operation speakers are placed in a doorway and on a back deck. Finally, an 8-inch SLDD (Super Low Distortion Driver) subwoofer is position in a core of a back deck.

In further to normal source inputs, a RLX is propitious with a USB pier that allows for easy connectivity to apparatus such as an iPod® or iPhone® along with a removable peep expostulate storage device containing WMA, MP3 or AAC format music. The USB pier is located alongside a normal AUX jack (that allows connectivity of an outmost MP3 strain player) located in a core console’s storage compartment.

Krell 14-Speaker Ultra-Premium Audio System
The RLX Sport Hybrid with Advance facilities a Krell audio component that is designed to set a new customary in automotive audio performance. Krell is one of a many rarely reputable names in high-end audio, with a three-decade story of building ultra-premium home audio systems. Though a new RLX component outlines Krell’s initial prolongation automotive application, it shares a opening goals of all Krell systems: Musical detail, three-dimensional sound presentation, and impassioned volume capability. Four years of growth went into a RLX 14-speaker system.

The 14 Krell speakers are positioned in a RLX cabin in a same locations as those in a Technology package. Six magnesium-domed tweeters are decorated in a interior; twin nearby a A-pillars, twin some-more in a back doors, and another camber on a back deck. A 3.1-inch orator is centered in a tip of a instrument panel, and 6 immeasurable 6.7-inch Zylon® (Zylon® is a purebred trade symbol of Toyobo Co., Ltd. in Japan) speakers are placed in a doors and on a back deck. Finally, an 8-inch subwoofer is positioned in a core of a back deck.

Krell uses rarely modernized orator record to grasp a new spin of audio performance. The tweeters, for example, use magnesium diaphragms. Reproducing high frequencies requires that a tweeter diaphragm be means to pierce intensely fast, so ideally a diaphragm should be assembled of materials with really low mass. Aluminum is lightweight, sincerely rigid, and inexpensive, though an aluminum diaphragm structure has a clever fundamental inflection of around 20 kHz. This inflection is mostly viewed as a oppressive or dirty sound. Magnesium is some-more costly than aluminum, though it has a advantage of being reduction mass. Adding a constructional shallow to a diaphragm severely increases acerbity though additional mass. This pushes a diaphragm’s low-pitched magnitude adult into a stammering 40 kHz range. The outcome is unusual fact and extended high frequencies though any snippet of harshness.

Special record is also practical to a Krell system’s 6 6.7-inch speakers. The speakers use diaphragms assembled of a component called Zylon®, a world’s strongest super-fiber. This really firm component is ideal for orator manufacturing. Zylon® responds really fast to low-pitched submit and, some-more importantly, stops relocating usually as fast when a low-pitched vigilance stops. Compared to a polypropylene diaphragm component that is used in a immeasurable infancy of automobile audio speakers, Zylon® has distant reduction neglected vibration, ensuing in a many cleaner and some-more minute sound.

Because of a ability of a magnesium tweeters and Zylon® speakers to exhibit excellent sum in a music, a top peculiarity crossover components were required. Heavy gauge, pristine copper inductors and top-of-the-line polypropylene capacitors from Bennic say ideal vigilance integrity.

The dissimilar amplifier channels are designed accurately like a channels in a high-end Krell home amplifier. The categorical channels underline a same robust, high peculiarity bipolar appetite transistors used in flagship Krell home amplifiers. The outcome is an amplifier that has one-third reduction exaggeration than amplifiers found in competing flagship oppulance sedans. Using a difficulty D channel for a subwoofer increases that amplifier’s potency and reduces a size. The DirectFET difficulty D amp is designed for low EMI (electro-magnetic interference) to keep a categorical outlay channels as noise-free as possible.

For a best audio performance, a Krell component uses steel orator grilles. Because steel is inherently stronger than a cosmetic used for many grilles, a grilles can have a some-more open area though compromising strength. Metal grilles also quiver reduction than customary cosmetic grilles.

Special caring went into ascent a speakers with ascent plates that are thick and heavily reinforced. In multiple with a privately engineered doorway panels, a ascent plates yield an unusually rigid, quick ascent aspect for any orator element. Sound appetite that would differently be squandered in a drive-unit or doorway quivering is accurately transmitted to a listener, ensuing in tighter drum response and softened low-pitched detail.

XM® Radio
XM® Radio is a customary underline within a RLX audio component and it provides some-more than 200 channels of digital programming with nearby CD-quality sound. The XM® vigilance is beamed to twin promote satellites positioned in geostationary circuit above Earth. The beams from these twin promote satellites mix to camber a whole continental United States and some of Canada.

XM® Radio programming includes channels clinging to music, sports, talk, traffic, weather, children’s programming and entertainment. Of a some-more than 200 XM® channels, 71 are commercial-free. When a RLX’s audio component plays XM® Radio, a Audio/Information shade (or navigation arrangement in vehicles with navigation) displays a stream category, hire strain title, or artist’s name, while a stream difficulty and hire are also displayed on a On-Demand Multi-Use Display™. A nominal three-month subscription to a XM® Radio use is enclosed with squeeze of a new RLX, and business are means to continue a use or cancel any time afterwards.

HD Radio™
All RLX models underline customary HD Radio™. HD Radio record translates a normal analog radio promote to digital and provides modernized audio and information facilities that raise a listening experience. Sound peculiarity is radically improved, and distinct satellite radio, HD Radio is free.

Instead of promulgation out one analog signal, HD stations send out a bundled vigilance – both analog and digital. Because it is digital, textual information such as traffic, batch info and strain titles can be sent out, as well. Unlike required radio, HD Radio stations promote additional channels, that are called HD2/HD3. These combined channels offer RLX owners a star of additional choices.

Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Audio
Hard Disk Drive (HDD) audio component featuring a 15GB HDD-based memory are involuntary from a bureau to duplicate strain marks from pre-recorded CDs, enabling business to store many CDs value of strain on-board for easy access. The component will not duplicate strain from burnt CDs or from USB peep drives. Based on strain files measuring an normal stretch of 4.2MB per strain during a 128kbps bit rate, approximately 3,500 songs can be commissioned into a 15GB component (approximately 175 CDs).

The HDD-based component annals strain during 6-times that of a strange strain line time. Two recording peculiarity settings (192 kbps or 128 kbps) are available. The automatic-recording default environment can be altered to primer if desired.

The audio component can arrangement information about a strain tracks, such as artist names and strain titles regulating a Gracenote® database in a component software. This database can be intermittently updated to simulate newly expelled music. Gracenote updates can be downloaded by RLX owners during automobiles.acura.com in a Ownerlink territory (up to 4 updates per year maximum). The updates can thereafter be commissioned onto a CD-R or onto a USB ride drive, that in spin can be used to refurbish a RLX audio system. Even though a Gracenote update, newly expelled audio marks will play on a sound system, though concomitant calm information on genre, artist, manuscript name and line name.

Song By Voice®
Song by Voice® is customary on a RLX Sport Hybrid. From many navigation screens, a motorist can simply press a TALK symbol on a steering wheel. With so many audio calm potentially permitted on a HDD or from an iPod, RLX engineers set out to make it easy to find content. So drivers can simply give a voice command, such as “Play strain ‘Danny Boy,'” and a component will automatically start playback. Song by Voice also lets a motorist name strain by artist, album, line name, genre, playlist and even composer.

System Operation

The RLX Sport Hybrid’s Acura Satellite-Linked Navigation System uses GPS record and a 60 GB tough hoop expostulate formed (HDD) component to yield drivers with turn-by-turn superintendence to their comparison destination. The component adds aspect travel trade information for a RLX and provides coverage in many areas within a U.S., permitting a motorist to name faster, reduction undiluted routes. The component offers a new spin of convenience, with a new era of AcuraLink. Owners can send a end to a automobile in allege of outing regulating AcuraLink (with a discretionary Connect Package), or while on a highway around a AcuraLink Concierge user (with a discretionary Premium Package) or a interactive voice response component (with a Connect Package). Faster, some-more means and easier to use than any previous-generation Acura system, a RLX navigation component sets a new standard.

The RLX navigation component facilities an 8-inch high-resolution WVGA (800×480 pixel) backlit tinge arrangement that takes a place of a audio/information arrangement in non-navigation models. The component can be tranquil by voice, or with a permitted interface dial. The new record allows a voice-activation component to respond to infrequent authority phrases that need reduction user familiarization, in further to a prior capability of being means to know oral city and travel names. For example, a voice ask for “Radio 98.3 FM” can now be oral in approximately a dozen opposite ways trimming from “change a radio hire to 98.3” to usually observant “98.3 FM.” This proof relates to audio functionality of a audio/information screen. The navigation component can also be tranquil by voice with required navigation commands like, “Find nearest Chinese restaurant” or “Find nearest ATM.”

The audio component is automatically pale when a “Talk” symbol is pressed. The voice-recognition record allows a motorist to simply pronounce city and travel names aloud, and a component responds by displaying a matches permitted in a database. Points of seductiveness on a map (such as restaurants or grocery stores) can be displayed with code trademark icons, or a component can yield turn-by-turn navigation – all by voice command. The large point-of-interest (POI) database includes write numbers that can be dialed by regulating a Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® component when a driver’s mobile write is connected to a system.

The Acura Navigation System uses Global Positioning Satellites (GPS) in multiple with minute information from a vehicle’s mapping component to pinpoint a vehicle’s plcae and to yield a horde of useful mapping and line superintendence features. The receiver can implement adult to 12 satellites from a network of 24 tellurian positioning satellites. If a receiver is blocked by a tunnel, a parking garage or a high building, an inner gyroscopic component and a speed sensor line a plcae of a automobile so that a map information stays stream and reliable. The automobile time is exclusively tranquil by GPS data, so when time zones are crossed while driving, a time will automatically set itself to a stream time.

The RLX’s navigation shade can arrangement frequently updated trade information including trade flow, incidents and construction on freeways, and for a initial time, on aspect streets. The information is from Probe Traffic, a component that marks a movements of participating Acura (and other) vehicles to beget present upsurge information. Participants opt into a Probe Traffic component to accept upsurge information, that is unknown and scrubbed of any personal information. The upsurge information is transmitted around a RLX’s embedded mobile information couple and is graphically displayed on a navigation system.

The component can automatically recalculate a “detour” line and arrangement a pop-up box signifying a line change, when trade overload or highway incidents are rescued along a comparison expostulate route. Alternately, a motorist can recalculate a line in primer mode simply by selecting “TRAFFIC INCIDENTS” from a Map Info menu followed by selecting a “AVOID” authority applicable to an incident.

A digital chronicle of a Zagat Survey® grill beam provides minute information and reviews on name restaurants in a database. The reviews can be review on-screen or oral over a audio component by a synthesized voice.

The navigation component can also advise scenic routes formed on a National Scenic Byways and All-American Roads guide. The U.S. Secretary of Transportation recognizes certain roads as All-American Roads or National Scenic Byways formed on one or some-more archeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational and scenic qualities. Scenic-route information for 126 routes can be accessed from inside a “Information” menu and is displayed on a map as a green-and-red segmented line.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
The RLX Sport Hybrid facilities a new Forward Collision Warning (FCW) component as customary equipment. When a camera-based component detects a automobile brazen and determines that collision is possible, it provides a motorist with visible and listened alerts to inspire deterrence actions. (The component does not embody an involuntary braking function).
(See Safety territory for some-more information.)

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
Lane Departure Warning (LDW), also standard, provides a motorist with visible and listened alerts if a automobile starts to pierce out of a rescued line though a spin vigilance activated. A symbol on a revoke left apportionment of a instrument row allows a component to be switched on and off.
(See Safety territory for some-more information.)

Smart Entry Keyless Access System
The RLX facilities Acura’s Smart Entry with Push Button Start. The Smart Entry component lets a RLX owners benefit entrance to a automobile though carrying to work a pivotal fob or required key. The Smart Entry remote has a singular digital temperament and a RLX can be unbarred when a motorist grabs one of a doorway handles (front doors usually on a RLX and RLX with Navigation) while a remote is in his/her possession. When carrying a fob (or if all doors are unlocked), a case can be non-stop by dire a symbol located on a RLX’s back fascia.

Once a motorist has non-stop a doorway and is seated, a Smart Entry component allows a RLX to be started by pulling a Engine Start/Stop symbol positioned on a instrument panel. When withdrawal a car, a press of a soft-touch symbol on a extraneous doorway hoop thatch all a doors. Alternatively, dire a Lock symbol on a Smart Entry remote will also concurrently tighten all doors.  

Smart Entry also facilities a singular “quick vent” feature.  When a user vexed a “unlock” symbol on a keyless remote for twin seconds after unlocking a doors, a component lowers all 4 windows and opens a appetite moonroof to fast opening built-up interior heat. In addition, by inserting a built-in pivotal into a driver’s doorway tighten and holding a pivotal in a “lock” position, all open windows can be concurrently raised.

Preferences
The Acura RLX comes with twin keyless remotes that can be set with a singular welfare to accommodate a preferences of twin opposite drivers. The permitted preferences embody motorist seat, steering circle and counterpart positions, along with name HVAC functions. Other preferences embody branch entrance lights on or off, audio component pre-sets, atmosphere conditioning preferences, and navigation component settings. In a eventuality both owners use a automobile during a same time, a RLX will commend a keyless remote that approaches a automobile first.

Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
The RLX Sport Hybrid Advance facilities Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow. This automobile speed and stretch control component uses a grill-mounted millimeter-wave radar to guard a stretch between a RLX and a automobile directly ahead. Like a required journey control system, a ACC component can say a preset speed. In addition, by mixing radar information with information from speed sensors, ACC can umpire a RLX’s speed to say a preset following stretch interval.

The Low-Speed Follow underline can revoke a motorist effort in undiluted trade by progressing a comparison stretch interval, even in stop and go traffic. If a automobile rescued brazen is in operation of a component and slows to a stop, a RLX will also come to a stop. When a automobile brazen moves forward, a automobile idol on a multi-information arrangement blinks. With a press of a RES/+/SET/– switch adult or down, or with a press of a accelerator pedal, a RLX will resume Low-Speed Follow mode.

RLX Interior Accessories
A line of Genuine Acura Accessories was grown concurrently with a RLX to yield personalization for a Acura owner. Like all Genuine Acura Accessories, a RLX accessories are lonesome by a 4-year/50,000-mile singular guaranty if commissioned by a play during a time of automobile purchase.

2014 ACURA RLX SPORT HYBRID: VISIBILITY TECHNOLOGIES

In further to a stretched perspective driver’s mirror, multi-angle rearview camera and Jewel Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, a RLX is permitted with a Blind Sport Information system.

Blind Spot Information (BSI)

The Blind Spot Information (BSI) component on a RLX Sport Hybrid uses twin radar sensors to ceaselessly guard conditions behind a RLX and warning a motorist if another automobile is rescued in tighten vicinity – generally in a blind mark of a driver. The BSI component uses a LED indicators (mounted on a A-pillar escutcheon) and an listened warning to warning a driver.

There are twin warning levels: 1) If a automobile is in a driver’s blind mark thereafter a LED indicator on a incoming side illuminates; and 2) If a automobile is rescued and a RLX spin vigilance is activated, a LED indicator on a incoming side blinks and a buzzer sounds 3 times.

To forestall fake alarms while maneuvering during low speed, a BSI component is infirm next approximately 20-mph.
