First TAPELESS (tape gone!) audiophile FX45, 2nd HU, Screen!

It was a long time....

BUT now it's finaly done!

Say BYEBYE to the Tape-Drive and say hello to my new Headunit!

First some introduction:
- The amber screen was relocated to where the clock was.
- The original Audio-Headunit was removed.
- Tapeslot was cut out from the headunit faceplate (this was a critical step..).

So far nothing new - see my previous thread on that:
http://www.infinitifx.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=8332

Now for the new stuff:

- Alpine LCD mounted where the amber screen was before.
- New Alpine CDA-9855R Headunit installed where the TAPESLOT was.
- Alpine DVD Navigation GPS unit installed.
- KCA-420I Ipod adapter for the CDA-9855R installed
- KCA-BT100 Bluetooth Car Bluetooth Adapter installed
- RS PRO audiophile speakers installed (http://www.rs-audio.de)
- XETEC EVO 4 amp fitted into trunk.
- RS AUDIO woofer custom fitted into trunk.
- Custom made tweeter covers fitted so the sound fits the FX's geometry
- Custom made faceplate for the new Headunit applied.

Yes, there is only one set of speakers in the front of the car now. I disconnected all other speakers. Only the two pairs (speaker&tweeter) of the RS PRO are filling the FX with sound.
This gives an incredible clarity to the sound - with speaker in behind, you always get some signal delays as well as a lot of unwanted superposition.
I can tell you - I never heard better sound in a car before.
Those RS Audio PROs are incredible as well as the Xetec EVO 4 amp!!

And even the woofer although it might look a bit small is doing more than well - that thing moves more air than you might think it would...

But now for the pics:

>> The new faceplate around the amber screen and the new Alpine Headunit


>> New Monitor


>>Detail of the new faceplate and headunit


>> Another Shot w/o the shiftknob


>> Custom fitted tweeter *left*


>> Tweeter *right*


>> Trunk with Amp, Woofer and Condenser


>> Xetec Evo P4 Amp (http://www.xetec.de) rocks!


Right now I'm waiting for the speakers to run-in ... I barely can't keep my hands of the volume regulator - but a good system needs time to run-in

So finally the mod is finished... maybe someone will to adopt the idea of removing the tape slot and fitting in a new headunit. And hoefully we will see a lot more mods like this!

For questions: PM me.

Loook good. I'm not too sure on the looks of the radio tho. Maybe i'm not used to it. Awesome job on the lower panel around the orange screen. Well done. Any pics/specifics on the actual head unit tape unit extraction?

Great work on the relocation, specifically the wrapping of the surrounding area.

Very nice custom work! The head unit looks a bit out of place maybe a different model would look better, who knows. Nice mod tho and the first to get rid of the tape deck so props to you on that.

More of the lower panel ?

Well it is a custom made part for my FX.
Maybe it can be re-produced but I don't know at what price.

As usual the price depends on the number of parts to produced....

How many people are interested buying such a part ?
