C&L installs rocking Bongiovi audio in Embraer 135
C&L has fitted an immersive Bongiovi speakerless system into an Embraer 135 for the first time. The resulting sound is described as an immersive audio experience that produces high-fidelity audio throughout the cabin.
The Bongiovi system uses transducers that are attached to the backside of an aircraft's interior panels.

C&L Aviation Services, headquartered in Bangor, Maine, has successfully installed a Bongiovi speakerless cabin audio system into an Embraer 135. The system, which uses Bongiovi's patented digital power station signal processing technology, coupled with transducers attached to the backside of aircraft interior panels, is the first such system installed into an Embraer 135 aircraft. The resulting sound is an immersive audio experience that produces high-fidelity audio throughout the cabin.

“C&L is an expert in modifying and improving regional aircraft like the ERJ 135/145 making it the ideal choice for a project like this one,” says Rob Hamelink, managing partner at Bongiovi Aviation. “C&L has been a great partner of ours for several years, and we look forward to working with it for many years to come.”

C&L has been modifying and upgrading the interiors and systems inside regional jets for several years, specialising in converting the aircraft into business-class and luxury aircraft. The company provides interior aircraft refurbishment, engineering and exterior paint services to convert regional jets such as the CRJ and ERJ aircraft from standard airliner configuration to luxurious 30 seat or less aircraft, including new seat designs, upgrading interior panels, upgrading lavatories and installing LED lighting, Wi-Fi, other avionics upgrades, electrical outlets and more.

“We are always excited to be able to provide solutions like the Bongiovi system to meet the specialised needs of our customers,” says Calvin Tuitt, C&L senior VP of business development MRO. “Due to our regional and corporate aircraft experience, we are a logical choice to complete projects like this one.”
