Does your new car suffer from anemic sound yet already come with features integrated into the dashboard that you don’t want to lose? If this resonates with you, at Progressive Audio we can help. Our factory audio integration experts give you the best of both worlds; retain what you like about your car’s electronics and upgrade to enhance what you don’t like (or what’s missing). This is the core of our factory audio integration philosophy and we are experts in delivering well-engineered solutions to fit your specific needs.
Buttons, screens and a complex dashboard
Many customers are unaware that we need not change your dashboard electronics to enhance and improve the sound. Many of today’s vehicles have such integrated and complex dashboard electronics that include LCD touch screens, bright information displays and multi-function buttons that we often recommend not to remove this equipment. Instead, we have become experts in the tasteful integration of working with existing electronics to connect the audio signals to integration-friendly aftermarket products that deliver an outstanding improvement in the sound system without changing how you interact with the vehicle’s electronics. We know how to improve what you hear without changing the buttons you press or the screen you view in the dash. It’s the best of both worlds.
Features already existing
If your new car came with a feature or technology you like, we can retain full functionality of those features while focusing on enhancing what you dislike, or what is missing. If you lack a Bluetooth hands-free calling system in your exotic European car, we can add that to integrate directly with the car’s existing in-dash screen. If you lack satellite radio in your navigation-equipped American built truck or SUV, we can add it just as if it were factory equipment, often at a fraction of the cost. Whatever features your treasured vehicle already has – such as a reverse camera, back-up sensors, telematic system (such as OnStar, Lexus Link, Mercedes ASSIST, Hyundai Blue, etc.) we can ensure all those existing technologies remain fully functional when we design and install upgrades to your car’s sound system.
To improve the sound or technology, there’s no need to lose features you’ve already got. Our goal at Progressive Audio is to improve and enhance your driving experience, not make it an exercise in compromise.
Add power and frequency response
Most cars, regardless of how high-tech their dashboard electronics, lack two significant elements of a great audio system. First, they lack enough power to overcome road and wind noise so that, as a listener, you can become immersed in the sound. Second they also lack a full frequency response capability that covers every note from the lowest lows and the highest highs with the smoothness and balance representative of a realistic sound experience. Understanding and correcting these two significant deficiencies allows us to approach a factory integration system design plan that delivers the improvement of sound you desire without unnecessary modifications of compromises. We install subwoofers, component speakers, amplifiers and digital signal processors in ways that preserve the car’s integrity, factory warranty and all serviceability for regular maintenance or repairs. The sound system upgrades we install at Progressive Audio accomplish the sonic challenges without compromising the car’s existing functionality. Remember, we are specialists and this is a big part of what we do.
