Warwick Acoustics scales rapidly as it commercialises revolutionary automotive in-car audio technology

Warwick Acoustics Ltd – a UK-based audio technology company, is well under way with commercialisation of its revolutionary Electrostatic Loudspeaker technology, following R&D and product development phases. Powered by a series of fully subscribed funding rounds, Warwick Acoustics is scaling rapidly, and investing in industry-leading talent, capability, and state-of-the-art facilities, to support the substantial commercial pipeline that is developing. The company is poised to disrupt the global $8 billion in-car audio sector while delivering a positive environmental impact.

Warwick Acoustics’ is leading the ‘clean sound’ revolution, bringing significant benefits compared to the use of conventional audio technology. Like-for-like, ElectroAcoustic Panels are up to 90% lighter, whilst consuming up to 90% less power and offer significant interior design and packaging freedom. As automotive manufacturers (OEMs) set key sustainability objectives, including the decarbonisation of their supply bases, Warwick Acoustics’ ElectroAcoustic Panels offer breakthrough speaker solutions. The company’s use of 100% by mass upcycled and recyclable materials, provides OEMs with a key advantage to help them achieve their sustainability targets. Additionally, Warwick Acoustics’ ElectroAcoustic Panels do not use any unsustainable rare earth metals – something that the design of conventional speakers relies upon heavily.

To support the commercialisation phase, Warwick Acoustics has assembled a rapidly growing team of more than 40 global subject matter experts and leaders in mechanical, electrical, acoustical and systems engineering to redefine the science of electrostatic technology, the principles of in-car acoustic systems design, and manufacturing production techniques. The team brings experience in the in-car audio, technology start-up and automotive manufacturing expertise, from companies such as Sony, Bose, Harman Automotive, Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Meridian Audio and Google.

Over the next 12 months, Warwick Acoustics will be building upon significant commercial progress and several successful funding rounds to accelerate its growth trajectory. It is targeting an increase the size of its in-house team by a further 50% in 2023 to support the substantial commercial pipeline that is developing.  This will include recruitment in a range of disciplines, with a particular focus on outstanding electrical and mechanical engineers with the skills, drive, and ambition to be part of a leading edge change movement towards sustainability within the industry.  

The combination of elite talent and world-class electrostatic technology developed by Warwick Acoustics to date, has enabled the company to earn more than 30 global awards in the premium headphone ecosphere (https://warwickacoustics.com/reviews/). And this trend is destined to continue as the company expands into the global automotive sector.

With Warwick Acoustics’ ElectroAcoustic Panels now fully automotive-grade ready, the development of this new proprietary technology is perfectly timed to meet automotive OEMs’ rapid transition to electrification and life cycle sustainability.
