YOUR SQ5 THE ONLY ONE LIKE IT IN THE WORLD
Make your SQ5 really unique by creating your own exhaust sound profiles.
You can now customise all 6 exhaust sound profiles and change things like volume, exhaust note at different RPM, and also make the exhaust sound more irregular to emulate a lumpy cam. There are thousands of combinations so you can be sure to find a unique sound for your SQ5. To find out more, check out our video, or tips for adjusting the software here.
You can also save your favourite exhaust sound and upload it to other sound booster systems to share it with friends or other Sound Booster enthusiasts.
SOUND LIKE YOU NEVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE
No other exhaust system gives you the options and flexibility Sound Booster Pro gives you, without the cost and time normally involved in upgrading an exhaust system. Standard exhaust upgrades may increase the volume and change the exhaust tone slightly, but not to the extent of Sound Booster. There is no welding required for Sound Booster, and because you don’t need to actually modify your exhaust system, there are no warranty implications for engine modification.
You Audi SQ5 or SQ5 plus is fitted with something we call active sound. If you drive your SQ5 in efficiency mode, you will notice it has a quiet almost silent diesel sound. Switch over to dynamic mode and you will notice that the engine sounds much more lively, with an authentic petrol engine sound emanating from the exhaust. This sound is generated by the active sound system. Some refer to them as exhaust sound actuators, some as exhaust sound generators, and some just call them exhaust speakers. Two of These sound generators are built into the exhaust system at the rear of your SQ5 and are activated in dynamic mode. The Sound Generators work in much the same way as a speaker system, reproducing the sound volume and frequency they receive from the external sound module.
Sound Booster Pro by Kufatec can be installed to your SQ5, and has the ability to create it’s own sound characteristics. Sound Booster can constantly measure inputs from your SQ5 such as speed and RPM, and adjust sound parameters such as volume and frequency. As an example, when your engine RPM is at idle, the Sound Booster may be emulating an output frequency of 600 RPM, and when your engine is running at 3000 RPM, Sound Booster may be emulating an output frequency of 3000 RPM. These parameters can be adjusted through the Sound Booster software.
Sound Booster Pro gives you an additional 6 exhaust sound profiles to choose from. You can either use the 6 standard tones, or customise 6 new tones of your own using the Sound Booster software. If you prefer to have less tones to select, you can also disable some of those 6 tones, and for example you might only have two active tones. However you decide to configure your Sound Booster, you will also have the original exhaust sound of the SQ5 available, and will still be able to disable the sound actuators all together by going away from Dynamic mode to efficiency mode.
