    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    It's tough to get exact without the details on the car, but something like what we did on this Ferrari would be approximately $660. We're at $100/hr for internal jobs and those housings are around 1 hour of design and another 5 hours of engineering, fabrication and assembly. The rest is...

    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    These were designed/built proprietary to this car, but we've used the same method on multiple other platforms. Depending on the specs for your car we might be able to design and build a set specifically for you. Here are a couple other examples: EDIT: Even though these lips look flat, the...

    Mounting Options: Escort Max 360 ci on 2016 Mercedes E350

    First off, congrats on the new acquisition! Secondly, if you're going to install the CI system yourself, it would help if we had an idea of your skill level when it comes to panel removal and reinstallation as well as making connections and general wiring. The good news is that you have really...

    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    That's the one thing I forgot to snap a photo of. We ended up using Radar Mirror for this one so it's in the rear-view mirror. Looks just like this other one we finished recently:

    2005 Audi TT ALP + NetRadar DSP Install - Phase 2

    Pretty creative solution for post-install adjustments on the front laser – I dig it. Also loving how that LED illuminates the mic grille in the cluster. Great work, guy!

    Installation advice for 30AE Miata

    Ah! Didn't put that together on my own, lol. Great meeting you, too, Chris! Looking forward to working with you down the road when you're ready for CM's!

    Installation advice for 30AE Miata

    I'm a little late to this party, but figured I'd chime in with my 2¢ To back up your original thoughts, I would definitely run the two outers in the recessed provisions up high. For the center, I would recommend a TX, but in a custom plate mount that put the TX at the very top. That still keeps...

    R3 / TMG Install, Ford Crown Victoria

    You might want to reconsider your wiring path for long-term reliability. Wiring through the pinch molding in the door jam can easily wear the wire down over time and cause a short. You should have plenty of available firewall space considering these cars were designed for a boatload of...

    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    No worries – we don't really have anything proprietary that we're trying to hide. For the small amount of curve that we're putting on these lenses, there's no heat needed for the bend. We're machining the substrate with the proper curve and then laying a thin layer of the IR-Acrylic on top...

    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    Thanks! The front center and rears are all flat. The outside two on the front are curved slightly. We've done a few with curved housings and they test the same as flat.

    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    Thank you guys – Always great to hear positive feedback! Forgive me if my nomenclature is incorrect. When I say RX/TX I'm referring to a single standard send and receive unit. There are no TX used on this car. All five are standard heads. That said, it was consistent JTG with LTI both front...

    2019 Ferrari 488 Spider /// Escort & ALP

    Haven't really shared anything here in a while and thought it was about time. We've been really busy here at Musicar with projects and on some cars forget to take any photos! Here's one that we finished up not too long ago. I didn't get as many of the cool behind-the-scenes build photos that we...

    2016 Range Rover Autobiography / STiR+ and ALP Quint

    We've been crazy busy and haven't shared much with you guys lately. We just finished up this project and I really loved the way the interior integration came together. This isn't as advanced of an exterior setup as mdavis' red Porsche GT4 we did, but I think most folks here will appreciate the...

    Porsche 911 Turbo S - Stinger VIP + ALP Quint Install

    I would say the positioning is spot on, but I would definitely do the mounts a bit differently if you're getting a real professional install. This thread has some good photos of what I feel is a proper mount for the 991. It's a GTS so the front valance is a bit different, but it might give you...

    Porsche GT4 - ALP 5+1pre, nophoto f+r, NavTV f+r, ded. V1driver+ALP control

    Correct. With the BT Version one from ALP you had to choose if you wanted bluetooth or HiFi permanently. With BT Version Two you can use both. When you're connected to bluetooth via the app it will send alerts to the phone. When the bluetooth is disconnected it will default back to HiFi. Hope...

    2016 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet - BEL + ALP

    Thanks for this kind words everyone! Happy to share our craft with the community. Unfortunately we haven't been able to test this one. We would love to connect with someone in the area that could help with that. The mount is actually made of cast acrylic and aluminum. Both are not...

    Porsche GT4 ALP install - a work of art!

    Absolutely. The "right" installation is well thought out and requires little to no modification, retains serviceability, and fits with the factory design language of the car.

    2016 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet - BEL + ALP

    I gotten a few request to share some installs we've done. This is a project we just finished up a couple weeks ago at Musicar Northwest in Portland, OR. Let me know what you guys think! BEL STiR+ display in custom fabricated acrylic housing BEL + AL Priority controllers in factory...

    Porsche GT4 ALP install - a work of art!

    CJR238 Does that shop have build pictures somewhere else I'm not seeing? Looks like a lot of peel n' stick installs.
