The term “OEM Integration” identifies an approach to upgrading a vehicle’s entertainment system without removing critical components that are highly integrated in the dashboard or vehicle electrical system. This includes integrated dashboard control panels, information and display screens and other factory-installed components. At Cartronix we have developed methods to retain all of your vehicle’s features and functionality while still delivering incredible upgrades to the overall sound.
Improve the Sound
The majority of factory-installed car stereo systems lack sufficient volume to combat road and wind noise, as well as achieve undistorted sound above a conversational volume level. They also lack adequate frequency response to convey the subtle nuance in each musical instrument, vocal and ambient detail of the original recording. Even so-called “premium” factory sound systems sorely lack the dynamic range capacity to deliver the emotion and excitement of the music as it was intended. It’s no problem, at Cartronix we know how to remedy that and tailor the sound upgrade to deliver just what suits your specific tastes. If you’re an audio aficionado, you’ll love what we can do.
Improve the Volume
We add amplification to your car’s sound system while still retaining all of the original in-dash equipment. By adding amplifiers that use efficient switching power supplies, we are able to improve the overall range of volume and dynamic range without any audible distortion. Rather than volume that wakes the neighbors, think more along the lines of ethereal audio bliss where you ‘tune out’ the world around you and become enveloped in the high-quality sound. We can configure one or more amplifiers depending on your car’s speaker layout and we also offer compact, multi-channel solutions that provide a complete system amplifier in a single chassis. Our integration experts can help you determine the right approach for your sound system goals.
Full Range Sound
Achieving an overall improvement in frequency response often requires the addition or replacement of speakers that can’t do the job. Adding a subwoofer is an effective way to enhance the lower octaves of sound that most factory-installed sound systems simply lack altogether. We can custom build subwoofer enclosures and solutions that appear as if factory-installed. We can accommodate great low frequency performance in very small and discreet spaces so that you hear all the benefits without giving up any functionality of your vehicle.
On the middle and higher frequency ranges, important sounds like vocals and musical instruments to which the human ear is particularly sensitive is where our high-performance coaxial and component speakers systems benefit your sound system upgrade. We have some of the best sounding speakers on the planet and can demonstrate them for you in our showroom, or in one of our many demonstration vehicles. Once you hear the realism and nuance of a performance speaker upgrade, listening to the factory-installed speakers will seem like singing into an empty coffee can. Your ears will immediately know just how effective and pleasing our speaker upgrades really are.
Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
To further enhance our OEM integration capabilities, we employ DSP-based signal processors that allow an almost infinite range of possibilities in equalization, time correction, crossovers, level matching between channels and more. This allows us to fine-tune the sound to your specific tastes. We can even create presets for different music or situations (such as top up/down, windows open/closed, one or two listeners in the car, etc.). It’s virtually endless what we can control and enhance in the overall quality and result of your sound system upgrade. Our DSP processors are engineered to work seamlessly with today’s factory-installed sound systems so that you need not remove anything from the dash or lose any functionality. Whether it’s reverse sensor beeps, door chimes, factory-Bluetooth hands-free operation or any other existing vehicle function, all of these work seamlessly with our DSP signal processor solutions.
Expert Installation is Important
When making upgrades to your vehicle’s sound system, especially in today’s newest vehicles, it’s imperative that highly qualified, professional installation technicians are part of the job. At Cartronix, our trained and MECP certified technicians expertly integrate with your vehicle’s existing entertainment and electronics systems to provide a notable upgrade in the sound quality without worry of compromise to any of the vehicle’s safety or information systems. It’s one reason why we’re the leader in the field of factory stereo upgrades and why we know how to deliver great sound no matter what car you drive. At Cartronix in Valparaiso, we have you covered.
