This new heat sink offers 360 degrees of constant cooling directivity. A radical new approach of advanced cooling compared to conventional formats.  The E-Series amplifiers incorporate future proof technologies like Stop/Start ready, that allow the amplifier to remain powered during the Stop/Start cycle at low voltages without damaging the amplifier.

Skinz Sound Deadening for Mercedes

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. 


Ghost 2 for Mercedes

Next Generation Vehicle Protection

The Ghost is the original aftermarket CAN bus immobiliser. Protect your car from theft like nothing else on the market today.

The Ghost protects your car from key-cloning, hacking, and even key theft.  The Ghost has no key-fobs or LED indications to give away its location. The Ghost uses the buttons in your vehicle such as those on the steering wheel, door panels or centre console, to allow you to make a unique, changeable, disarm sequence (like a PIN code) that must first be entered before you can drive your car. Just like your credit card but you can make your car disarm sequence even safer by making it up to 20 presses long!

In order to make extreme security also be hassle free, we have created a smart-phone application that connects to your car and allows you to get in and drive without having to enter the disarm sequence. Ghost allows 2 phones to be connected. All you have to do is pair your phone with your Ghost, leave the Autowatch Ghost application running in the background with Bluetooth enabled and you can drive conveniently and securely. However, remember that if you phone is in range (5m to 10m) and the application is running the Ghost will be disarmed.

Immobilisation by communicating with the ECU
Disarm sequence via buttons on steering wheel / dash
No transmitted radio frequency signals
Uses the on-board CAN data network
User changeable disarm sequence
Service / Valet mode means the disarm sequence is never compromised
Secure, unique emergency code should the disarm sequence be forgotten
Mobile application can connect to 2 phones to allow quick disarm


Connection Cables for Mercedes Audio Upgrade

Hanging electronic equipment together is a sophisticated science in itself. Connection was introduced by Audison in the early 200's and consists of ranges of products for wiring power to amplifiers, amplifiers to speakers and head units to amplifiers. Cables and interconnects are available in three different grades depending on how discerning the listener and their choice of equipment is. Just as you wouldn't run your Ferrari on Gin you wouldn't connect your Audison Voce speakers to a Voce amplifier with bell wire. Aside from the quality requirement, when dealing with the extreme current capabilities of large amplifiers to use inferior power wiring could prove extremely dangerous.
