In 1998 Elettromedia (Italian manufacturer of consumer audio products since 1979) creates the Hertz brand, giving voice to its amplifiers and becoming a world leader in the loudspeakers marketplace. Hertz quickly introduces important innovations in the drivers design technology, confirming creativity as a key strategic asset for Elettromedia.
In 2006 Hertz already occupies an established position worldwide among car audio brands and presents the Hi-Power line of amplifiers to the many fans who ask for entirely Hertz audio systems.
Since its launch, the Hertz brand represents many different kinds of high end mobile audio products, including amplifiers, speakers and subwoofers.
From the remarkable, for size but not only, HS subwoofers the “ES” subwoofers discende; two new sub series add: the “ML” series for the Mille line and the “HX” series for the Hi-Energy line. Outcome of noticeable design refinements, the new subs are the best in quality/price ratio in their respective categories
The historical line comes to its third release: besides its remarkable technological upgrades, a cotton fibre pressed-paper cone is employed and the three-way coaxial features a flat tweeter. The new sub boxes complete the line Exponential Flanged Duct For the first time, the sub boxes are equipped with a new port, reducing distortion at the lowest frequency ranges
The new Mille line is the reference within high fidelity reproduction and the Elettromedia team’s pride. The woofers feature the innovative V-cone® technology, a V-shaped cone with exponential profile, for maximum linearity and dispersion; in the subwoofers a die-cast basket is employed for the first time
The fans ask for a full Hertz system and the electronics are re-introduced into the product catalogue: their high power and multiple functions of the Hi-Power amplifiers revolutionize the concept of the amplifier! Confirmation comes from the Las Vegas CES Show where the HP 1KD is awarded with the 2007 Innovations Award.
Power, compact size and competitiveness: these are the targets set by the HCP project, as the line name itself, Hertz Compact Power, suggests. The Hertz team used all its experience and know-how to provide the adequate and satisfactory response to the user’s. HCP 5D won the EISA 2013-2014 award as “European In-Car Amplifier”
Continued evolution to turn into Legend. Extreme dynamics, unlimited power handling, real acoustic scene. All the parameters have been redefined to a superior level to give life to the maximum expression of the “Hertz Sound Experience”. Mille.3 is a total listening experience, transferring the emotions of a live performance to the car environment.
The Mille line is enhanced with systems, coaxials and the pro components, dedicated to the enthusiasts yearning for the authentic hertz mille listening experience. the accurate electroacoustic design together with the innovative automated manufacturing process provide the speakers with a great price/performance ratio, making them affordable to a wider range of car hifi fan.
The ‘Hertz Sound Experience’ is now digital! Hertz H8 DSP is capable of interfacing with any analog and/or digital source, transforming ordinary “audio” into a high-performance integrated system. The simple and intuitive computer software ensures a wide array of adjustments to improve the acoustic response of a complex environment like the car compartment.
For 20 years, hertz has created high-performance speakers and amplifiers for the 12 v industry, receiving innumerous awards for its outstanding track record of world-class products. To satisfy our fans who love to be surrounded by nature, hertz has launched the marine and powersports lines, bringing the ‘hertz sound experience’ to their open water and off-road outings.
Taking advantage of the state-of-the-art design methods used in the flagship line MILLE, the team of electro-acoustic designers achieved top performance, never before achieved in this category, to offer you real added value. Thanks to a design planned to the last detail, the Cento loudspeakers maintain a linear and controlled output, even at the very high listening volumes required by younger fans.
