Fibre Optic Mercedes SL500 Stereo Upgrade


Fibre Optic Mercedes SL500 Stereo Upgrade, an amazing install for a low price!

A great customer of ours gave us the privilege of upgrading their outdated system in their Mercedes SL500. The customer requested something basic with Apple Car Play and DAB radio, they were given the most popular options, the  JVC KW-M745DBT or the Pioneer SPH-DA130DAB, they preferred the look of the Pioneer!

This car had fibre optics and a factory amp, these systems are notorious for being tricky to do, so it was only right the customer let the pros do this job for them. There is a few ways of doing these systems, have the right adapters or strip the fibre optics out and start again. Thanks to @connects2ltd, we had an interface we could modify and retain the factory amp and fibre optic system.

Now, due to the advanced audio tuning capabilities of the SPH-DA130DAB, the car sounds amazing and much better than the factory headunit. The 13 Band EQ allows you to adjust your audio output in detail for a music experience tailored to your preferences. Therefore providing a much more in-depth listening experience.
