As Close to Factory Installed as Possible (Bentley GT Mulliner)

I wanted a state-of-the art sound system that looked as close to factory installed as possible. And I wanted maximum listening/viewing options. In other words, I wanted a system that plays cds (retain 6 disc changer so I can listen to books on tape or the old fashioned cd), has ipod capability, and has video-in-motion capacity. As to the sound, I wanted clear highs but substantial bass; but, again looking as close to factory as possible. This included my refusal to allow a subwoofer to displace the ski boot. Thus, figuring out how to add bass in a different way became one of a variety of challenges. The result is: I have an ipod; I have the original 6 disc changer; I have video-in-motion. And until you open the glove compartment (and see the ½ din dvd) or the trunk (and see the Tru Technologies amp and custom rack) the entire system looks as if it came direct from Crewe. And the system sounds “incredible”.

In addition to the audio, Systems Unlimited did a stealth installation (both inside and out) of a 9500ci radar/laser system and a back-up camera (tucked above license plate and integrated into the nav screen).
