Car Electronics Installations And More On My Own Car

How’s it goin’ my friends, it’s Gatlin here once again from Carphonix Car Audio.

And I wanna tell you a little something about me.

Something you might not know.

Now, I don’t tell a lot of people this, but the truth is…

I like cars.

I know, I know. Didn’t see that one coming, did ya?

Hah!

Anyway, one of the coolest things about running a car electronics installations shop is all the different cars I get to see every day. From the most practical to the most exotic, from high performance machines to classic beauties, from 18-wheelers to golf carts I’ve seen it all.

And you know what? Each job is fun in its own way.

But none of them are as fulfilling as the work I do on my own cars.

That’s right, your pal Gatlin works all day on your car, then he spends the evening working on his own cars!

Maybe I need a new hobby. Oh well.

In this one, I’ll show you my lovely, my pride and joy, my 1986 300ZX Turbo.

I’ve had this car a long time, and I’ve put a lot of work into it.

I hope you enjoy watching this one as much as I enjoyed making it.

A Full Car Audio Systems Install On A Porsche

Hello hello hello my internet homies, guys and gals, it’s your old buddy Gatlin here from Carphonix!

And boy oh boy do we gots something for ya today.

What is it?

A bright, beautiful, yellow 2008 Porsche Cayman S.

Yep, that’s right! Big Daddy Gatlin is crimpin’ in a Porsche!

This one was a fun project to work on. We got to do a full car audio installation on this bad boy.

Here’s a list of just a few of the parts we used:
• A JL Audio RD 900/5 amp
• A custom built amp rack
• A pair of C5 tweeters in the dash
• A pair of C5 door speakers
• A pair of C5 rear speakers
• A pair of 8” Pinoeer woofers in the doors

You’ll see all that, and more, in this video series.

Yep, you heard me right – this is a video series!

This was such a big project that it took us three videos to complete.

Well, that, and people kept stopping by to interrupt us. In the first one, you’ll see Craig from Bonsai Rides stopping by, and in the second you’ll see a visit from the one, the only, 1PUGLIFE.

Car Electronics Install In My Own Ford F-150

Hey guys, Gatlin here from Carphonix.

Today we’re working on a 2016 Ford F-150 XLT. But not just any Ford F-150. We’re working on MY Ford F-150.
What are we doing with it?

It’s a base model truck with the plain old 3 inch factory screen inside, and it’s time to give this bad boy an upgrade. I’ve been spending so much time upgrading everyone else’s car electronics that I haven’t had time to upgrade my own!

We’re dealing with a new product from Axxess Interface, the AX-DSP digital signal processor. We’re installing it alongside a plug-n-play harness.

Check out the video below, and we’ll walk you through the install.

Contact Carphonix Car Electronics

If you have a car electronics project you’ve been thinking about, give us a call or come stop by the shop. We’ll help you understand your options and give you the most killer install possible that fits your budget.

1970 Ford Mustang Mach I - Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta #196

Also check out to see more about car audio and electronics enhancements -http://bit.ly/2iNzHL7-#TW

1970 Ford Mustang Mach I - Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta #196
The Atlanta Showroom is offering this 1970 Ford Mach 1. The Mach 1 package was only available in the 'SportsRoof' body style (previously known as the 'Fastback'); never on the hardtop or convertible. Many resto-mod visual conversions have since been performed by owners and enthusiasts, but are not Mach 1's by VIN code. The Mach 1 started with a V8 powered 'Sportsroof' body and added numerous visual and performance enhancing items such as matte black hood treatment with hood pins, hood scoop (including optional Shaker scoop), competition suspension, chrome pop-open gas cap, revised wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires, chrome exhaust tips (except 351W 2V), deluxe interior, livery and dealer optional chin spoiler, rear deck spoiler, and rear window louvers (SportSlats). Mach 1s came with upgraded suspension to varying degrees dependent upon powertrain choices. Big block cars had front shock tower reinforcement, thicker sway bars (no rear bar for 69), and heavier springs and shocks. 428 CJ/SCJ 4 speed cars also came with staggered rear shocks. Standard on Mach 1s was a fierce but cosmetic hood scoop that had integrated turn-signal lights mounted in the back. A more functional option was the signature "Shaker hood", an air scoop mounted directly to the top of the motor, used to collect fresh air and so named for its tendency to "shake" above the rumbling V-8 below. The interior came complete with teak wood grain details, full sound deadening material and high-back sport bucket seats. Ford kept the Mach 1 alive into 1970 and little changed other than the visuals. The 1970 body included dual-beam headlights with the previous inner headlights becoming sport lamps and recessed taillights on a black honeycomb rear panel, side scoops behind both doors removed, revised bucket seats, deep dish sports wheel covers, as well as new side and rear badging and striping were the main visual differences. 1970 saw the previous 351W V8 engine options replaced with a new 351 cu in (5.8 L) Cleveland (351C) V8 in either 2V (for use with 2-venturi carbs) or 4V (for use with 4-venturi carbs) versions. The 351C 4V (M code) engine featured 11.0:1 compression and produced 300 bhp (224 kW; 304 PS) at 5400 rpm. This new performance engine incorporated elements learned from the Ford 385 series engine and the Boss 302, particularly the poly-angle combustion chambers with canted valves and the thin-wall casting technol ogy. Options include: Power Steering, Rally Wheels, Vinyl interior, radial tires. To view the car in greater detail, including 100+ HD photos and HD video, please visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

The World’s Most Cost Effective Remote Car Starter

What’s happening party people, it’s your pal Gatlin here from Carphonix, your favourite car audio shop.

Today we’re talking about remote car starters. But not just any remote starters – we’re talking about the world’s most cost effective remote starter out there.

What are we working on today? This slick 2014 Dodge Challenger. We’ll be using a Fortin harness, which allows us to “plug and play”, or at least as much as we can with something like this. There’s still some finagling to do, but overall it’s a pretty simple process.

The best part? We can use the factory fob, so you don’t need to worry about another fob bulking up your keys.
Anyway, check out the whole video below.

Contact Carphonix

Got a whip that needs a remote car starter installed? Do you have a car electronics upgrade you’re hoping to get done soon? If so, contact Carphonix today. We’re always happy to chat about car audio, car electronics, or any other ideas you have for your ride.

LIVE Q&A With Craig From Bonsai Rides

What is up my people, it’s your old pal Gatlin here from Carphonix, and we are live!

Well not now, but we were when we made this video. This was a live video we did with Craig from Bonsai Rides. Craig imports JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) rides for people here in Canada. He takes us on a tour of the automobile stereo installation in this Nissan X-Trail, which is pretty old school and has some cool stuff in it you don't see much of these days, including a built in drink cooler!

This specific model is available only in Canada and Japan, so if you’re one of our American or European followers you probably have never seen one of these before.

Craig answers some of your questions about this vehicle, about JDM imports in general, what it takes to insure a JDM vehicle, and more. Check it out below:

Oh, and if you want to get in touch with Craig to find out more about JDM imports or about his business, check him out at bonsairides.com.

Did you recently import a new ride that you’d like to upgrade? Looking for a new sound system, alarm, LED lights, or other car electronics enhancements? Then give us a shout.
