Alpine Halo9 : Android Auto and CarPlay are big and brilliant

The HALO9 has a beautiful 9-inch WVGA touchscreen which only uses an adjustable mount attached to a 1-DIN chassis for installation. The default position has the screen’s sliding mount pushed out with it sitting at a 90-degree angle. The bottom of the screen is then centered with the 1-DIN chassis. The screen hovers over or in front of the dash and consumers have the option to position it 20mm deep and up to 30mm higher (or lower) than the default position. The hovering position gives the deck a clean and modern silhouette. The screen can be tilted between four pre-set angle points (45º, 20º, 0º, -20º).


The HALO9 comes equipped with Apple Car Play and Android Auto for seamless, hands-free incorporation of the most popular mobile phone technologies. The deck also has an HD Radio tuner built-in.  Maps, music, messages, and phone calls are controlled from and displayed on the HALO9’s touchscreen.

The system is also compatible with Bluetooth technology for audio streaming and hands-free calling features. A USB port is included with the HALO9’s cable bundle for connected video or audio playback, an AUX input, and HDMI input. The HAL09 has a mech-less design, which means that there is no CD/DVD slot, but one can be added with a player that is sold separately.

In addition to the standard Apple Car Play and Android Auto apps, there are a few popular apps such as Waze, Spotify, and Amazon Music that are accessible through the Alpine Unit. You have the ability to customize the shortcuts that appear on your touchscreen so that you can have your most popular audio sources and phone settings available at a simple touch.

Skinz Soundproofing

Why B&B Audioconcepts SoundProof Vehicles

Good car audio begins with properly treated doors and panels. Flexing metal panels and expanses of plastic cause a myriad of issues with car sound from bass cancelling road noise to annoying shakes rattles and vibrations. A flexing metal panel can effective sap the energy away from your speakers by creating inter-cancellation at the rear of your speaker while other surfaces can produce unwanted nasty resonances which colour the sound. Our sound deadening and panel lining products go as far as possible in eradicating these products while our wave diffuser will absorb the sound issuing from the rear of your speakers to prevent that sound reflecting back into the speakers. The importance of sound treatment such as the Skinz range should never be underestimated.

What Our customers Say

"I initially had a front door speaker die in my BMW 2 series and rang BMW for a quote. I then thought i'd look around for similar quotes in Cardiff for a generic speaker replacement and stumbled across B&B Audio Concepts, wow am i glad i did! Waz and the team upgraded both my door speakers the next day with xFire speakers for the same price BMW were quoting to repair a single factory speaker! By just upgrading the 2 door speakers alone has completely transformed my car...music has never sounded better! I'd advise anyone who loves their music to give these guys a call, you wont regret it! Thanks again guys!"
