Factory Car Stereo Installation or Professional Installation? Can You Tell?

By March 3, 2017Car Audio

Was your car stereo installation factory installed?

Does it look like it’s factory installed?

What can an installer do to make it look as factory as possible?

These are the questions we’ll be answering in today’s video.

Here at Carphonix, we have an arrangement with a Volkswagen dealership in the city to install Bluetooth technology into their vehicles. Their factory installs have Bluetooth, but the steering wheel volume control doesn’t work on them, so they came to us.

In this video, I’ll walk you through the process of installing a car stereo with Bluetooth in a way that allows you to retain the steering wheel controls.

Here are the products used in this video:

• Axxess ASWC-1 Steering Wheel Control Adapter
• Axxess XSVI-9003-NAV Interface Harness
• Metra 40-EU56 European Antenna Adapter (FAKRA)
• Metra dash kit
• Kenwood Excelon DPX792BH Receiver

We’ll take a look at the installation process, and show you a few tricks of the trade we use to make sure your car electronics installations are as high quality as possible. This gives you a longer lasting, more reliable install, eliminates any rattling, and most importantly, sounds amazing.
