The objective wasn’t to do anything too crazy but to make everything look integrated, as if the system were meant to be in the car.
Top shops of course tend to use top-end gear. The experts at Sound Decision started on the integration theme by going with Alpine’s IVA-W205. The quality of the product may match the level of the car, but getting it to look right was a separate matter-and the real issue. To help with the integration, the installers made a custom bezel, which they wrapped in factory-matched blue vinyl. It may not look totally factory, but aesthetically it works. Aside from the radio, CD and DVD, Rose wanted Sirius satellite radio so they hooked up a SIR-ALP1 adapter, rounding out Rose’s entertainment options. The W205 is also tied into a factory backup camera for added functionality.
The frontstage is composed of appropriately high-end speakers, Focal’s Utopia Be Kit No. 6 component set. The woofers are in the factory door locations, but the Sound Decision installers built MDF baffles and rings to replace the factory speaker housings. As for the factory grilles, they were tinted with custom-matched blue dye. The tweeters are in the A-pillars, molded in with fiberglass and wrapped in blue vinyl.
