THE REAL HELMET OF ANDREA DOVIZIOSO
DOVI # 04 SOUND, born in 2019, was the first of our Helmet Speaker series and is a great success with the public. This is a Bluetooth speaker made from the original SR-GP racing helmet that Suomy developed for Moto GP rider Andrea Dovizioso.
Tested in extreme situations such as the Tourist Trophy 2019, this helmet has become part of the history of motorcycling. DOVI # 04 SOUND is not just a collector’s item for enthusiasts, autographed directly by Dovizioso, but a high-level performance speaker, in the true spirit of iXOOST. Available in limited edition.
JAMES HUNT’S ORIGINAL HELMET
Born from the direct collaboration with Bell Helmets® and with the approval of the Hunt family, we have created in a single example a Bluetooth speaker inside the original James Hunt helmet. Winner of the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship and known also for his friendship / rivalry with Niki Lauda, this motorsport legend has become a symbol of F1 in the 1970s and his helmet is one of the most sought-after items by collectors.
This extraordinary project is the demonstration that nothing is impossible and that iXOOST can satisfy any layout request related to your favourite helmet by transmitting the emotions of the F1 track through music.
YOUR HELMET BECOMES A BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
Do you want to make a Bluetooth speaker with your full-face helmet? iXOOST will create a unique and bespoke object to celebrate your special passion for motorsport. Thanks to iXOOST research, your helmet can be transformed into a perfect low-vibration sound cabinet for powerful and transparent acoustics. The shell is perfect for an optimal sound flow and the “down firing” arrangement of the lower speakers leaves the profile of the helmet intact in its most racing form.
iXOOST has already collaborated with some pilots and production companies, creating exclusive objects such as DOVI # 04 SOUND and the James Hunt Helmet Speaker, two perfect examples of the combination of craftsmanship, originality, and technology from which our audio systems come to life.
Only iXOOST could think of “making a helmet sound” while leaving its racing shape unchanged, with the same performance as a hi-fi audio system.
Our custom-made wireless speakers with racing helmets are a triumph of acoustic engineering. Not only are these original helmets, but also hi-fi speakers delivering an astonishing 200 watts for high fidelity sound power. 4 “woofer and 1” tweeter have been designed and manufactured in Italy specifically to perform with this particular cabinet.
How are the loudspeakers that we make with original helmets made? With the craftsmanship and technological research that distinguish all iXOOST creations. The low frequencies are optimized thanks to the “down firing” arrangement of the drivers and a bass reflex duct that works to create incredibly deep bass for a system of this size.
The connection is advanced and easy to use thanks to a latest generation AudioB plus Bluetooth® 4.2 / aptX ™ module that reproduces audio with extreme cleanliness.
Your helmet can also have its own unmistakable voice. Contact us to tell what you would like to make or send us your helmet and we will create for you a unique and exclusive object.
