Overview

Our take on the Clarion Full Digital Sound System with Receiver

The dream of reproducing musical signals that are pure and free from interference by keeping them in the digital realm from source to speaker has finally come true. No longer will your music's strength and clarity depend on electrically-resistant, noise-prone speaker wiring, and hot, inefficient amplification. Clarion's Full Digital Sound system plays music with unprecedented efficiency and control, so you can enjoy your tunes with the best quality sound possible.

Clarion VX807

VX807 DVD receiver

7-inch DVD receiver with digital output

Clarion's VX807 DVD receiver starts things off on the right foot with a colorful 7" touchscreen, offering plenty of room to see everything clearly as you tap through the different displays. The large vivid  icons offer intuitive navigation through the different functions, so you won't have to guess where the next touch of the screen will lead you. An HDMI input allows the receiver to get more from select smartphone apps and even play select video files. The Bluetooth® feature allows hands-free calling and wireless tuneage with compatible devices. The VX807's digital optical output makes it the ideal source for Clarion's Full Digital Sound lineup.

How the digital system works

Clarion Z3 processor

Z3 processor

Clarion's Z3 Full Digital Sound processor receives digital information from the VX807, then transforms the signals for audio processing. The Z3 then sends both the processed digital signal and 12-volt electrical current to a pair (or two) of Clarion's Z7 Full Digital Sound 6-3/4" speakers. A large scale integration (LSI) chip on each speaker uses the digital signal to modulate the power supply voltage, which drives the speakers.

6 voice coils on each driver

In effect, DC voltage travels with the digital information along the same wires. The digital signal is combined directly with the voltage by the LSI chip. Six voice coils on each speaker pool their separate driving energies together, transforming the electrical signals with impressive efficiency into the mechanical motions that produce sound. Consequently, the system draws very little current, which makes it ideal for hybrids and other vehicles without a lot of extra electrical power for a big sound system.

Clarion Z25W

Z25W subwoofer

The tweeters come with the processor, the subs need separate power

Because the tweeters are so small, their LSI chips are onboard the Z3 processor and they receive analog signals for their voice coils via the included wiring. The Z3 also includes outputs for two of Clarion's Z25W Full Digital 10" subwoofers. Each sub also has an LSI chip onboard, but as it requires more power to drive bass, you'll need to connect extra power and ground connections.

Sounds good, too

All this cutting edge technology wouldn't be worth it if it didn't sound good, right? Well, it sounds great — we checked out the system here in our Crutchfield Labs. The system worked great straight out of the box, but Clarion's Z-Tune digital tuning app helps customize the sound, via smartphone or tablet, to fit your car and musical preferences perfectly. Z-Tune features extensive tunable crossover filtering, 31-band equalization, and time-alignment so every speaker, tweeter, and sub in the setup will sound their best individually and together.
