VW Caddy Alpine 9 Inch Touch Screen

The iLX-F903D Alpine Halo9 brings a 9-inch high-resolution touch-screen to any vehicle with 1DIN installation space. The super-slim display appears to simply hover over your dashboard and even includes a white LED ambient light on the bottom. You get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, DAB+ digital radio, USB video playback, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming and much more with this amazing product. Bring the future of car-media to your ride with the Alpine Halo9.

The iLX-F903D is a DAB+ Digital Media Receiver with a 9-inch WVGA touch-screen and drive-less design (no CD/DVD slot). It uses a 1DIN chassis for installation but the screen “hovers” in front of the vehicle’s dash, allowing the oversize screen to be added to a variety of vehicles without the need for custom installation. The iLX-F903D’s "Alpine Halo9" nickname is descriptive for the screen’s unique hovering position and its 9-inch size.

1DIN Chassis – 9" Screen

The iLX-F903D features a 1DIN chassis, making it immediately compatible with any vehicle with either 1DIN or 2DIN radio dock. The 9-inch high-resolution touch-screen is attached to the front of the media box with steel brackets to achieve a rock solid display that does not wobble while driving.

Edge-to-Edge Glass Design

The amazing 9-inch display sits in a super slim housing with edge-to-edge glass and a nice chrome trim around the edge. Combined with the touch-responsive hard-keys on the bottom it makes the units stunningly beautiful and very modern in function and appearance.

Adjustable Display Angle

You can adjust the iLX-F903D’s display angle from +45 degrees to -20 degrees to match a wide range of dashboard angle. After the display angle is set, it gets locked into place during installation to be rock-steady while driving over any terrain and when pushing with your finger on the display to control the unit.

Adjustable Display Height and Distance

The display height can be adjusted +/- 3cm from the center position. This allows fully standing or hanging display configurations as well as everything in between. You can also adjust the distance of the display to your dash in a 20mm range. After the display height and distance to the dash are selected, everything gets locked into place to be very solid.

Works with Apple CarPlay

Simply connect your iPhone to the USB port of your Alpine Halo9 and launch Apple CarPlay to communicate, navigate and stay entertained with your favourite smartphone apps. Most apps are Siri optimized so you can keep your eyes on the road. Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 and newer.

Works with Android Auto

Android Auto was designed with safety in mind. With a simple and intuitive interface, integrated steering wheel controls, and powerful new voice actions, it's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road. Android Auto automatically brings you useful information, and organizes it into simple cards that appear just when they're needed.

WhatsApp

Now available for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto! Use WhatsApp to communicate with your friends in a safe and convenient way while you drive. You can dictate new messages or have Siri read messages for you while you drive.

Spotify

If you have a Spotify account, you can now use it in your car as well. Spotify is available for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and features the same search and playback functionality as the app on your smartphone. Paired with the amazing 9-inch touch-screen this is a must-have app for your Alpine.

Amazon Music

This is a great app for all Amazon Prime Music users. Available for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, this app let’s you access millions of songs while you are on the road and control every thing via Alpine 9-inch touch screen.

Voice Assistants

Push the voice button on your Alpine unit or your steering wheel buttons (if supported) to activate Siri or the Google Assistant. You can simply ask to call people, ask for route directions, write and send messages, ask for weather forecasts and much, much more.

Hertz MPK 165.3 PRO for VW Caddy

The MPK 165.3 car audio speakers system has been designed to ensure a wide low frequency response, even in cars with no space for a subwoofer. Thanks to the V-cone® and Boundary Free Surround technologies the MP 165.3 woofer boast outstanding dispersion features and generates high SPL with compact dimensions. The dedicated crossover MPCX 2.3 has been designed to exploit the wide extension of the MP 165.3 woofers , ensuring a natural transition towards the MP 25.3 tweeter, for maximum natural acoustic emission. The 1mm low parasitic resistance copper filter coil of the woofer maximizes its efficiency. The MPCX 2.3 crossover features tweeter level (0/+2 dB) to calibrate the MP 25.3 acoustic emission level comparing it to the woofer one. 

 

Skinz Sound Deadening for VW Caddy

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.
