Amazing Sound in Your Vehicle
High-quality car audio doesn’t happen by accident. It’s a combination of great products and expert installation that creates in-vehicle entertainment to tingle your senses. The sound of a kick drum, the thump of the bass guitar, the crash of a cymbal and the realism of vocals that aurally transport you to the original recording venue are all attributes that our expert installation technicians at Cartronix in Valparaiso pursue with every installation. Whether it’s a ground up, complete audio system installation, replacement of worn and broken components or a solution-based upgrade to your factory-installed audio system, we have the expertise and product selection to deliver astonishing sound in your vehicle. From restored classics to the most technology-equipped new vehicles, our installation expertise and vehicle knowledge is second to none.
Replace Your Radio
Is your in-dash radio missing the technology and connectivity you desire? If your vehicle lacks the modern features of a reverse camera, USB ports for portable audio devices, DVD playback, navigation or Bluetooth capability, we have what you need. Cartronix offers in-dash source units with latest technology and ability to play a wide range of digital audio formats and seamlessly connect to your portable devices such as iPhone and Android smartphones. We have a broad range of choices that span from single DIN CD players to full-featured double DIN units with DVD/hard drive-based multimedia and navigation systems built in. Many of our multimedia source units have clear and easy-to-operate color LCD touch screens with customizable menus to facilitate safe operation while driving. If you are an iPhone user, we have the latest technology with Apple® CarPlay™ compatibility built-in to ensure a seamless experience between your phone and dashboard. It’s really quite amazing what technology is available at your fingertips in the car these days.
We offer comprehensive, in-person demonstrations at our store so you experience each of these incredible in-dash units and the technology firsthand. If your vehicle lacks technology in the dashboard, it’s not necessary to purchase or lease a new car vehicle to have the technology at your fingertips. We can easily add it for you. We use only the best factory-quality installation parts so that your new in-dash radio looks as great as the car manufacturer would have installed it, if not better.
Sirius XM Satellite Radio
Sirius XM satellite radio is a subscription-based service offering over 100 channels with coverage coast-to-coast. Cartronix offers satellite radio add-ons to existing in-dash units (whether factory or aftermarket units) or we can add a satellite radio tuner to many of our aftermarket radios making it a completely integrated solution. As it’s common for traditional AM and FM radio stations to have up to 22 minutes of commercials every hour, the minimal (or nonexistent) commercial interruption of satellite radio channels have maximize your enjoyment of the content without lengthy and frustrating breaks. Let our expert product specialists here at Cartronix give you a satellite radio test drive today.
Factory Car Audio System Enhancements
Does your vehicle already have the in-dash and functionality you desire? Many new vehicles come with a host of features contained within an integrated dashboard. While this might be a plus on the technology side, most factory-installed systems severely lack the quality of sound you want. At Cartonix, we are experts in enhancing the sound in any new car without having to replace the in-dash radio. This is known as OEM Integration and our talented and innovative installation technicians are OEM integration experts. We spend our efforts upgrading the sound with digital signal processing, efficient amplification and upgraded speakers. All the while, we maintain the look and functionality of your in-dash electronics. Let’s face it, as nice as many new cars are the quality of the audio system when the volume is turned up often lets you down. It doesn’t have to be that way. Visit our OEM Integration page for more details.
Enhance Bass with a Subwoofer
We offer a wide range of subwoofers and bass enhancement solutions. We construct our custom subwoofer enclosures to ensure the highest standard of quality control, appropriate air space in which the subwoofer will operate and functional bracing for rock solid construction. Our custom subwoofer enclosures are computer designed and engineered to ensure a cosmetically ‘factory quality’ fit and finish. In the process of design, our experienced and knowledgeable technicians match your subwoofer with an optimized enclosure and power amplification to ideally balance the sound with other speakers in the vehicle. Great bass from a subwoofer doesn’t always mean waking up the neighborhood. Subtle details in a bass guitar, kick drum or large string and brass instruments come alive with a well-integrated subwoofer. Sit back and enjoy the ride with the full range of sound. Stop in for a live demonstration and we’ll show you how.
