In this paper an innovative modular digital audio system for car entertainment is proposed. The system is based on a plugin-based software (real-time) framework allowing reconfigurability and flexibility. Each plugin is dedicated to a particular audio task such as equalization and crossover filtering, implementing innovative algorithms. The system has been tested on a real car environment, with a hardware platform comprising professional audio equipments, running on a PC. Informal listening tests have been performed to validate the overall audio quality, and satisfactory results were obtained.
