The owner of this 2020 Hino 195 truck contacted Certified Autosound and Security in Abbotsford to have a sound system, remote car starter and accessory lighting added. After inspecting the truck and talking to the client about his expectations for the audio system, our team put together a design that looks good and sounds great.
Hino 195 Stereo System Upgrade
The client spends a lot of time in the truck and wanted much better sound. He brought us a pair of amplifiers and a subwoofer, and we supplied the Match six-channel DSP and two sets of Blam speakers, along with all the fabrication to make the system work. We added a pair of USB ports to the dash so the client can connect a USB stick or his iPhone to use Apple CarPlay.
The client’s four-channel amp powers a set of Blam Relax-Series RSQ165 6.5-inch components and a set of 100RS 4-inch speakers. After applying a layer of SQL Soundmat to the doors, we installed the 6.5-inch woofers and set to work creating a set of custom grilles to protect the speakers.
We finished the installation by creating a custom center console for the client’s 10-inch subwoofer. The enclosure directs the output of the woofer forward into the firewall so that it fills the truck with great-sounding bass.
Compustar Remote Starter and Security
The client wanted a high-end security system to protect the vehicle. We paired a Compustar FT7000AS controller with a 3,000-foot range, one-way, four-button remote kit and a DroneMobile X1 smartphone interface. The client can remotely start the truck from the RF remote or from the DroneMobile smartphone app. Magnetic switches added to the rear of the vehicle protect its contents.
Heise Lighting Upgrades
We started the lighting part of the project with a set of Heise He-TL1 LED work lights to illuminate the inside of the box. Next, we upgraded the factory headlights with new 6,000-lumen LED bulbs from ODX. The final addition was a set of Heise HE-MLC32PK cube lights. These lights produce 2,880 lumens of light to help illuminate dark roads at night and ensure that the client can drive safely. We installed labeled rocker switches in the dash to control all the new accessories.
Hino Work Truck Upgrade Project
After about a week of work, we invited the client to return to Certified Autosound and Security to see his upgraded Hino 195 truck. He loved the sound of the stereo and was thrilled with the Compustar system and the lighting. If you want to upgrade your truck, drop by one of our stores in Abbotsford, Maple Ridge or Chilliwack.
