A Whole Bunch Of Car Installations: An Austin Mini, A Mitsubishi Lancer, A Dodge Ram, And More







Good morning my internet people! Your pal Gatlin here from Carphonix.



Here's what we've got going on in the world of car installations - a Dodge Ram, an Austin Mini, and a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer. So check it out.



The Lancer's got some decent equipment in it - a Pioneer 800 watt amp, a pair of JBL 10 inch woofers, but it’s got what we call a buddy install. That means the owner’s buddy installed his stuff but he didn't know what the hell he was doing so all this great equipment didn't sound as good as it should. Check out the nightmare we find under the hood!



The Mini is so sick, it came from England to Japan then Canada, so it's been everywhere. The guys are diving into it to convert it from right hand drive to left hand drive. Hint: there's tons of stuff we need to tear out.



As for the Ram, we're installing a backup camera in that bad boy. Check it all out below:

How To Pick Up Canadian Radio Stations On A Japanese Car







Good morning y'all, it's Gatlin from Carphonix, and I still hate the snow. This video was from the middle of March and I'm glad the weather's better now.



Anyway I wanted to show ya something cool today to do with car radios. We're going to head upstairs today, which ya don't get to see too often so watch carefully! I'll show you some speaker adapter plugs and tell you why they're so important for your install. Newbies don't think of this and it can cause a lot of problems especially if you want to sell your car later on. You can save yourself a boatload of money and time knowing this stuff!



Then I'll show you how to install an "FM Transmitter Thing".



What's that? Well when you import a Japanese car, I guess their radio stations work differently than they do here, so you can't pick up Canadian radio stations. The FM Transmitter Thing lets you get Canadian signals in a Japanese radio.



Check out this video to see how it works:

Back From Vacation! Car Audio Installs On A Ford Fusion And A Toyota Scion







Hey everyone, it's Gatlin from Carphonix. Feelin' good after making this video. I just got back from the Dominican, tanned and refreshed and ready to get back at 'er.



We've got a couple of projects in this video. First a car sound installation on a Ford Fusion - a new set of speakers. Then we're going to upgrade a Toyota Scion with a new stereo. I'll show you the entire process of pulling out his old deck and installing a new one.



Buddy with the Fusion has been coming to see us for a while - he bought a lot of his stuff back when our shop was in Ingersoll.



At the end I'm going to include a few photos of Ashly and I in the Dominican just to make y'all jealous a bit!

Car System Installations: CB Radio On A Jeep And More





Hey guys, Gatlin here from Carphonix, and today we're working on a bunch of different car system installations.



First off we've got a Jeep that we're installing a CB radio in. We don't do a whole lot of CB installs because it's not as popular as heated seats and car audio, but they're still fun. We'll show you the installation, co-starring your friendly neighbourhood installer Damien.



You guys also requested some videos other than car audio stuff, so I wanted to show you some of the other work we do. We don't do mechanical work - that's not our business (though I do some of my own mechanical work on my vehicles) but we do a lot more than just car audio. I'll show you more about what we can do.



We're also going to peer into a Delica that came in recently. It's not my Delica, but someone else's. We'll take a look at how they engineered these things (they put way more into it than I think they needed) and show you what we're doing.



Anyway, check it out below.

Cheap Car Alarm Security Systems And Electronics Gear Is Garbage! Here’s Why







Hey y'all, Gatlin from Carphonix here. Have you ever bought anything off of Ebay because it was cheap, and then when it got to your house you realized it was only cheap because it sucked?



That happens with car electronics gear A LOT. Whether you’re buying car audio equipment, a car alarm security system, a remote car starter, or any other piece of car electronic equipment, it doesn’t matter. You get what you pay for.



Check out this video to find out why.





This Altima came into the shop back in July 2013. Buddy bought a $200 deck from China because it seemed like a great deal. And if the thing worked, it would have been.



But check it out. First off, the deck doesn’t fit into the dash properly, so the CD deck wouldn’t even open. They’re made for Chinese cars sold in China and don’t fit Canadian dashes.



The music also cuts out when you use the dash cam, which is kind of weird. And the camera is pretty low quality so you might have trouble seeing the stuff you don’t want to hit.



Talk To A Car Electronics Expert



If you’re going to go to all the trouble of installing new equipment into your car, why not make sure it’s actually good quality stuff that works properly? These days you get what you pay for when it comes to this stuff.



You’re going to have to bring your car to us anyway once you realize the gear sucks and it doesn’t work properly. So why not save yourself the trouble and the money and come talk to us first?



Give us a shout at 519-686-5555 and let’s talk! You can also stop by the shop.

In-Car Computer Video Installation In A 2008 Honda Civic SI

Hi folks, Gatlin from Carphonix here. It’s time for something a little old school!



Back in November 2013, I installed a set of halo lights into this 2008 Honda Civic SI. Pretty standard stuff.



What was cool about this install, though, is that the car’s owner was a computer genius. He had an in-car computer system installed right in his dash.



I know it’s not as surprising to see in 2017, but when he showed me this I was floored. It had some pretty cool features, like a performance monitor to measure acceleration, power, and torque, fuel consumption, engine temperatures, and a whole lot more. It’s also got a car video player built into the OS.





His install is a little sloppy, but I’ve seen a whole lot worse! It’s still a damn cool piece of equipment for the time, and even today.

Custom In-Car Electronics Installation On A 2003 Corvette

Hi everyone, Gatlin here from Carphonix.



If you’ve watched my other videos recently, you may have seen a pretty sexy Corvette sitting in the background. I’ve been working on this one for a while and we’ve done some pretty cool stuff to it.





It’s a 2003 owned by a good friend of mine who inherited it from his dad after he passed away. We added some killer new custom in-car electronics installed in this bad boy. It looks pretty dusty right now but when it’s clean it’s damn sexy.



We added a new 240 amp alternator to the engine. We also upgraded all the power cabling going from the alternator to the battery.



The battery, meanwhile, was replaced with a Shuriken power cell, and added all sorts of nice little details to make sure the entire electronics system works as efficiently as possible. You’ll see more about it in the video.



You’ll also see a custom dash kit installed, some new speakers, and a whole lot more. Just watch the video and you’ll see!



Contact Carphonix



Do you have a Corvette you want to get upgraded? Maybe not, but we can work with any vehicle, from a mini to an 18-wheeler and everything in between.



Give us a shout and tell us what you’re looking for. We’ll lay out a plan that can work with any budget.



Thanks for watching, and don’t forget to subscribe to our channel if you liked this. Until next time!

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

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.
