Audiovox Expands OE Sound Solution Line

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

International CES, Center Hall, Booth 10406-10418 -- Audiovox Corporation (Nasdaq: VOXX) today announced the expansion of its OE Sound Solution line to include nine models introduced at this year's CE show and the commitment to deliver another 8 to 10 models throughout 2011.

"These new infotainment systems expand on the Company's existing line for Camry and Corolla and add head units compatible with VW, Honda, Hyundai, Toyota and GM," said Tom Malone, President of Audiovox Electronics. "Audiovox was the very first company that supplied aftermarket radios with an OE style back some 45 years ago with our SPS Custom Line of auto sound. These new radios are the modern equivalent of that line providing the car dealer viable alternatives to factory installed systems that deliver increased profit opportunities."

Where many competitive OE solutions offer limited capabilities, these products come with some of the most sought after consumer features like built-in Navigation with Navteq US/Canada maps, built-in Parrot Bluetooth, hi-res touch screen displays (7" and 8" depending on model), Made for iPod and iPhone, XM -ready, and 3-year warranty.

While most of the line is designed to fit specific vehicles the GM and VW models fit multiple car models. The Company plans to introduce a universal double DIN with built-in Navigation which will be compatible with most vehicles.

The beauty of these systems for the consumer is that there are no package purchases that include unwanted options so they can just purchase the radio upgrade....and the cost of the radio upgrade can be included in the vehicle's monthly payments. In addition, these heads unit also come with a 3-year warranty.

"The new car market in the US appears to be turning the corner and all industry estimates point to continued improvements. We believe our OE sound solutions provide the dealer with consumer desired options that present profit opportunities....a win, win," Malone concluded.
