Bentley and Mercedes audio upgrades

Modern vehicles often have very sophisticated information/entertainment systems built into the dashboard. In a lot of cases it would be just about impossible to change this and besides, why would you want to? They usually look great and offer large clear displays with all the features you could want. A great example is the VW […]

Audi TT Audio Upgrade

The latest Mk3 Audi TT is packed with technology and has a very sophisticated infotainment system installed as standard (it desperately needs better speakers but that’s another story). But what of the Mk2 TT? Still a great car; but the old Chorus, Concert and RNS-E navigation systems are certainly showing their age. Regardless of whether […]

Digital Signal Processing

Well summer is fast approaching (hopefully) and that means we can finally get the car windows down and open the convertible hoods.

Improving the Mustang

The Ford Mustang GT, 5 litres of good honest, V8 muscle car. The Mustang looks great from any angle and the rumble from that big lump up front is wonderful.

Porsche Boxster Audio Upgrade.

The Porsche Boxster S is a superb car which offers exciting top-down performance with practical everyday driving capability. Unfortunately, the audio performance leaves an awful lot to be desired especially the base version that is only equipped with dash speakers. The biggest challenge, of course, is the convertible top because as soon as that is […]
