[Feature] The automotive environment is now one of the most important research areas in audio engineering, but it is also one of the most challenging. Not only is the acoustical environment quite unusual and the space rather small in comparison to most rooms, but also there are numerous compromises to be made in system design owing to factors such as the off-center listening position, competition for real estate on the dashboard and in other locations within the car, and the limited volume available for loudspeaker enclosures. Some of these issues were discussed in a series of papers and a workshop presented at the AES 123rd Convention held in New York in October 2007. Among them were the topics of improved stereo imaging in automobiles and the design of a listening test system for automotive audio. The workshop dealt with the tricky subject of uneven bass reproduction in automobiles.
