For many years, conventional speakers have been a necessary part of cars. However, LG Display wants to replace them with a Thin Actuator Sound Solution (TASS). The company will use the film-type exciter technology to create these innovative speakers. They can enable virtually any surface—even displays—to vibrate and emit sound.
What’s more, TASS speaker has dimensions of 150 by 90 mm, a thickness of only 2.5 mm, and a weight of just 40 grams. According to LG Display, 3D immersive sound systems may be added to vehicles by concealing TASS speakers under the dashboard, headliner, pillar, headrests, or any other surface.
Moreover, the tiny 5.9 by 3.5-inch screens weigh 1.4 ounces, are only a tenth of an inch thick. According to LG, the unit can produce sound “without compromising sound quality”. Because of their small shape, the speakers could be placed practically anyplace in a car’s interior. According to the tech giant, they could be concealed behind headliners, pillars, headrests, and dashboards.

The new speakers are based on Cinematic Sound OLED
The flat speaker system appears to be based on CSO (Cinematic Sound OLED) technology. LG Display demonstrated the tech in an OLED TV that generates sound using vibrations in the display panel rather than using separate speakers. Other cutting-edge vibrating panel systems, like the one in Sony’s high-end TVs like the Sony A95K, are also used.
The Thin Actuator Sound Solution, meanwhile, was created in collaboration with an undisclosed “global audio company,” according to LG.
The public is expected to hear the speakers for the first time when the technology is showcased in January at CES 2023 in Las Vegas, according to LG Display. The company anticipates the speakers to start appearing in new car interiors in the first half of next year.
