A client from Eagle River came to Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security with his 2014 Ram 1500, looking to upgrade the audio system and install a remote starter. Our team looked over the vehicle with him and listened as he explained his goals for the upgrades. We work on lots of Rams in our shop, and when we told him about our Ram package, he chose it instantly.
We began by replacing the factory radio in the dash with a Pioneer AVH-4100NEX unit that comes with Apple’s CarPlay software. When we introduced him to the benefits of CarPlay in our store, it became a must have for him. Our installers were able to integrate the factory-installed backup camera to show up on the big Pioneer display, which was a plus.
We added two Pioneer amplifiers to the vehicle and installed them in hidden locations – a GM-D9601 that powers the subwoofers and a GM-D8604 to power the front and rear speakers. This combination gave the client over 1,000 watts of clean power, so when he wants to jam, he has all the power he needs.
Audison Front Speakers
For front speakers, we chose the Audison APK165 6.5” component set, installing the woofer in the front doors and the tweeters in the factory locations in the dash.
Hertz Rear Speakers
In the rear doors, we installed a set of Hertz ECX130.4 5.25” coaxial speakers. In our usual Perfectionist fashion, we installed all of the speakers on custom composite speaker adapters and soldered and heat-shrank all connections.
Custom Subwoofer Enclosure
When it came time for bass, we went back to Hertz, choosing a pair of 10” ES250.5 subwoofers in an enclosure that fits perfectly underneath the back seat. Our team created a fiberglass mold for Ram trucks to let us make the fiberglass enclosure outside the vehicle, keeping the smell down and improving the finished product. We covered the enclosure in matching carpet with custom vinyl inserts for a classy touch.
Two-Way Ram Remote Starter
You know every vehicle we touch needs a remote start. In this case, we installed a Compustar RF2W-G9 two-way system with up to 3,000 feet of range. Now the client will always know if his doors are locked or if the vehicle has remote started.
