The Bongiovi chip features a digital processing method that maximizes the frequency response of the speakers, the capability of the amplifier and the acoustic properties of your car's passenger compartment. Bongiovi acoustics optimized the sound processing for each car line.
The 200 watt JVC KD-S100 is only sold by car dealers direct (cost between $700 and $1,000 installed) not by electronic retail outlets.The Digital Power Station is developed by veteran sound engineer Tony Bongiovi, who apparently is a 2nd cousin to Jon Bon Jovi. The JVC KD-S100 is the first product the chip is used, but it can also find its use in other audio equipment in the future.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
