The first part of the project in this Audi R8 was to create a custom double din fascia. Our approach to any custom trim is that the final product has to appear to be factory fitted or OEM+. We created the fascia from the ground up as there was no original trim available for us to modify. The final product resembles the OEM Japanese version of the fascia, with the addition of an Audison DRC MP controller mounted in the lower section. After upgrading the stereo, the car has been brought right up to date with Apple CarPlay, as well as retaining the function of the steering wheel controls.
This R8 was fitted with the stock B&O system, some B&O systems are ok, but doesn't come close to a system that's tailored to the vehicle and properly set up. A system like this is much more capable of producing an accurate response packed with detail and impact. We swapped out the B&O amplifier for an Audison Prima AP8.9 Bit amplifier which features an on-board DSP (digital signal processor), allowing flexibility and precision when tuning the system as we're able to EQ speakers individually, set individual levels, as well as having full control over time alignment.
