on January 7, 2009

Bongiovi Acoustics, LLC and Johnson Controls, Inc. (NYSE: JCI) have entered into an agreement to bring advanced technologies and delivery systems into the automotive industry utilizing Bongiovi Acoustic’s “Digital Power Station” (DPS) technology.

“Johnson Controls is one of the world’s premier interior automotive suppliers and is at the forefront in design, development, engineering and production of new, innovative technologies,” says Ron Simmons, Managing Director of Bongiovi Acoustics. “This relationship presents the opportunity for our two companies to join forces and create revolutionary audio applications.”

“DPS enables Johnson Controls to offer its global customers world-class technology while solving many of the key issues that confront auto makers today,” says Gale Mast, Director of Business Development for Johnson Controls. “We consider the DPS technology a breakthrough that represents the future of car audio design. Our relationship with Bongiovi Acoustics allows us to integrate this technology into our interior systems.”

The patented DPS technology was created by acclaimed record producer and engineer Tony Bongiovi and represents a ground breaking and cost-effective way to bring studio quality sound to mass-marketed consumer electronics. This technology produces significant sonic improvements in car audio systems without adding costly hardware such as amplifiers, crossovers and additional speakers.

Johnson Controls is a leading supplier of seating, interiors and electronics for vehicles. Through this agreement, Johnson Controls can integrate the DPS technology into its interior products, including vehicle overhead systems and door panels.

The companies will jointly develop new technologies and applications which through various applications, will reduce the weight of the vehicle, increase critical design space, and reduce the cost of components and installation. These technologies will provide a studio-quality sound experience for the owner while giving automobile designers the latitude to reduce weight and add safety features and amenities.
