Looking to upgrade your factory radio? Radios are fairly simple to use, but pack a punch when it comes to features. Built-in crossovers keep signals routed to the right speakers, and subwoofer volume level can be controlled at your fingertips! Control your iPod, add HD Radio or SiriusXM Radio , and perhaps even a CD Changer.
Advanced features such as hands-free calling, Digital Signal Processing (DSP), and high-voltage RCAs round out whatever you might need.
New laws have been created for cell phone use in the vehicle, avoid any issues with a Bluetooth(BT) Handsfree kit! We have solutions from an Alpine battery-operated visor mount unit (DSC-BT1) to fully integrated radios with built-in BT and Parrot kits that work with your factory radio!
Adding a Remote Start can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We carry Viper brand units that can give you 2000 ft. to 1 mile of range and two-way responder technology keeps you updated via the remote. Need more range than that and have a Blackberry or iPhone? We carry the Smart Start module that is compatible with most of our systems. We also carry alarm systems and accessories from Viper for that extra protection of your vehicle and its contents.
Want to keep your radio, but would like an auxiliary input or iPod™ connection? PAC Audio and Soundgate™ both offer solutions for your situation. Some radios can even control an iPod, Zune™, or other MP3 player with the right adapters. The Alpine EX-10 can give you iPod control, as well as add Bluetooth to your factory radio! Ask us how.
In-dash/Portable Navigation is a fabulous thing when you are on a trip and need directions. Find hotels, restaurants, and other points of interest along your way! Some of our in-dash video units are navigation equipped, or at least ready for it. Overhead and headrest monitors are also available for those rear seat entertainment folks. We carry Alpine, Rosen, Vizualogic, and Myron & Davis products with built-in DVD players and wireless headphones included. Hate to leave your DirecTV™ at home and want to add it to your vehicle? We can install a KVH system and your passengers can watch shows while going down the road*.
POWER is the name of the game in the amplifier world. You need it, we have it! We have amplifiers up to 10,000 Watts** continuous power!! Of course, we carry slightly smaller ones for everyday listening, too!! Even a small amplifier with factory speakers can make a difference in volume and clarity. If you are adding an amplifier, make sure your electrical system can handle it! No matter what size an amplifier is, it takes power to make power. Kinetik, VMax Charge Tanks, or Optima Batteries and H.O. Alternators or Ohio Generators allow you to make as much power as you will ever need!!
Tired of getting pulled over for breaking the speed limit? Get a K40 Radar Detection System installed and drive care-free. Select a system with a single front mount receiver, or upgrade to dual detectors in the front and rear of the vehicle, to pinpoint the source of police signals from any direction. You can even incorporate the advanced Laser Diffuser System for the ultimate in laser protection.
Factory speakers with an aftermarket amplifier can make things better, but why stop there? Upgrading your speakers can give you added performance in frequency response, and with an amplifier, even more volume and clarity can be achieved. Feel like you're an audiophile? Some of the best components made are Boston Acoustics™ Z series, JL Audio™ ZR series, and Alpine™ Type-X Pro's, all of which are available at Ford & Garland.
