Audioconcepts Recommends

This brand new VW Transporter drove into B&B Audioconcepts for some big sounds. The customer wanted a stealth install, so nothing visible but all audible. In addition to the big sound system the Audioconcepts team installed the latest Thinkware Q800 Pro Dash Cameras, giving the front camera QHD resolution. Finally the VW T6 underwent a full remap to give additional performance as well as improve its economy. The VW was taken from stock 204bhp to an impressive 242bhp.

Here is a full list of Tech the Audioconcepts team installed:

>>> Focal K2 Power Component Kit

>>> XFIRE 4 Channel Amplifier

>>> XFIRE Mono Amplifier

>>> XFIRE 6 Inch Subwoofer

>>> Skinz Soundproofing

>>> Connections Cables

>>> Footwell LED Lights

>>> VW Engine REMAP

>>> Thinkware Q800 Pro Dash Cams

 

FOCAL K2 POWER

RICH AND IMPACTFUL SOUND

The ES 165 KX2 component kit is composed of two 6½" (165 mm) woofers with Kevlar® cones providing an extremely rich and punchy sound. The centre of the cone is equipped with a phase plug for improved sound dispersion around the vehicle.

The two 'M'-shaped aramid-fibre TKMX inverted dome tweeters are equipped with bi-amplified crossovers. This enables perfect control over the high end for providing very smooth treble with perfect definition.

Thanks to its excellent power handling, this kit is the reference product of the K2 Power range. It even won over the hearts of the experts when it was officially revealed at the CES in Las Vegas, and received the CES Innovation award.

XFIRE MONO AMPLIFIER

A mono amplifier is used to deliver power to a single channel speaker, such as a subwoofer. The mono amp produces a single power signal which is ideally suited to the low frequency design of a subwoofer.

Features :

>>> Ultra efficient Mono Block Class-D topology design with 5 volt inputs and 2 ohm stability
>>> Extensive customization controls like LP/Subsonic crossovers make it easy to design the perfect soundstage
>>> Switchable RCA inputs, except low and high level signals
>>> Auto sensing for high level inputs, auto turn on/off for seamless integration with OEM systems
>>> Remote output for switching accessories
>>> Small, sleek, blacked-out all aluminium chassis
>>> “Direct Device Mount” PCB’s and tight tolerance components for improved signal to noise ratios for superior musical reproduction from the very first note
>>> Input and output connectors direct PCB mounted ensuring maximum power and signal transfer while side panel secured terminals resist flex, twist or breakage for structural integrity and performance
>>> ISOTEK protects against thermal overload, low voltage and short circuits.

 

THINKWARE Q800 PRO DASH CAM

 “Nearly three million motorists are now recording their journeys with dash cams, according to a new RAC study, and with more motorists starting to see the value of dashboard cameras, it is an important time for THINKWARE to bring the latest innovation to the dash cam industry” stated Joey Won, THINKWARE DASH CAM’s General Manager of UK Development. “An increasing number of insurers are accepting footage when reviewing claims and offering discounts to those with dash cams installed. By incorporating cloud connectivity into our dash cams, we are moving one step closer to offering insurers and drivers more streamlined insurance claims.”

 

Users can easily control and manage their Q800 PRO dash cam with CLOUD connectivity and built-in WiFi via an iOS or Android smart phone, providing a truly convenient way to view, download, access or delete recorded footage as well as enable firmware and safety camera updates via the app. The Q800 PRO is an update of the F800 PRO, doubling the definition of the front camera. The THINKWARE CLOUD features include Vehicle Location, Geo-Fence alerts, Impact Notification and video upload when there is an impact greater than 3G in intensity.

 

Equipped with Sony Exmor R Starvis sensors for both front and rear cameras and the powerful Ambarella A12 processor, the Q800 PRO offers crystal clear QHD footage for the front camera and 1080p for the rear. As with the F800 PRO, the Q800 PRO is equipped with Super Night Vision 2.0 which means clearer night time footage both while driving and when parked with up to 10 times the brightness in dark environments.

 

Users will benefit from different recording modes; motion and impact detection or Time Lapse Photography at two frames per second for up to 72 hours. If a driver is leaving their car for a longer period of time, they could use the Energy Saving Parking Recording where the Q800 PRO will sleep until an impact is detected and will wake up within a second, to record for the next 20 seconds. The current drain in this mode is reduced by two thirds.

 

The Q800 PRO comes with a polarising filter to reduce dashboard reflections. It is packed with useful features including built-in A-GPS for embedding speed, time and location data into recorded videos. The location is remembered so it achieves instant GPS lock when switched on. There is also the option of connecting an external GPS antenna, to get around the shielding effect of heated or sun reflective windscreens.

 

The location data is used to provide safety camera alerts, which include speed cameras, red light cameras, average speed zones and mobile speed camera zones. The European version of the camera provides “Danger Zone” alerts in France, as well as safety camera alerts in the rest of Europe.

 

Format Free 2.0 Technology eliminates the need for manual reformatting of recorded video files on the micro SD memory card, extending memory card life and improving reliability.

 

VW ENGINE REMAP

What is Engine Remapping

By customising your vehicles ECU we can set the car up to how it should have left the factory in the first place, our unique process offers better economy, more power and more torque. It will transform your car by giving you a much more rewarding drive.Our fully trained technicians will upgrade the software on your vehicle using the very latest technology and our professional tuning partners ensure that your pride and joy performs to its true potential. CARDIFF REMAP never use off the shelf maps, we only offer you custom tuned maps that are tailored to your requirements. Our process will result in your vehicles power and torque to be increased by up to 40% For those who opt for the economy tune an increase of 25% can be expected to your MPG. We can also offer a blend of both map which is very popular and offers the best of both, Stronger torque and fuel economy at lower RPM with better throttle response as well as a high performance increase at higher revs, this is very successful on the latest Turbo Diesel Engines. All vehicles covered, whether it be n/a petrol, turbo petrol or turbo diesel, what ever year of vehicle we can tune it.

 

Most modern vehicles contain an ECU (or Engine Control Unit) that is a small computer that controls how the engine works. Most vehicle manufacturers de-tune the engine by setting the software on the ECU to the defaults before sending the vehicle out to be sold and this restricts the power of the vehicle. Manufactures do this as they sell there cars all over the world, this means that the software settings on the ECU are defaulted for different climates, restrictions and laws. Vehicle remapping is where the manufactures firmware is modified taking away these restrictions.

 

Remapping a vehicle replaces the default software on the ECU by overwriting it with new software that is programmed to optimize your cars performance. This is known as vehicle remapping. When your car gets remapped the tuned software is plugged into the serial port of your car and overwritten by our computers leading to improved engine performance.

 

Skinz Sound Deadening

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.
