Car Audio System Integration

Factory Integration

We can integrate wth any factory stereo. Just want to add speakers? Just want to add a radio? Just want to add a subwoofer? No problem. Most of the installations we do on a daily basis integrate in some way way existing factory gear.


We can add an amp to any factory stereo. The amplifier is the engine that runs an audio system. Every audio system has an amplifier. In a factory system it's typically located inside the radio an is no more than a few inches long. Most aftermarket head units advertise power around 20 watts per channel but if you read the fine print, at 12volts they're all about 8 watts per channel and not much better than your factory radio. Adding an external amplifier is one of the best improvments you can make to any system adding warmth, punch, dynamic range and of course, volume. Amps come in numerous shapes, sizes and configurations. Some super small to fit in tight spots like behind a motorcycle fairing or under a seat or dash. Mono, single channel amps for subwoofers and multi channel amps up to eight channels for running mid-high speakers or even entire systems. Safe & Sound has the largest selection of amps you'll find anywhere, all on display at both locations.


We can add a subwoofer to any factory system. Factory sound systems rarely provide the dramatic and high quality bass range that comes from having an aftermarket subwoofer. In most factory systems you're literally missing a large portion of what the artist recorded. The powerful hit from a kick drum, the low 50hz thump of a bass guitar, the ultra low frequencies in electronic music, all are completely missing without a subwoofer. Safe & Sound Mobile Electronics has a huge selection of loaded subwoofer enclosures, raw woofers, vehicle specific and empty enclosures of every possible size and configuration but our specialty is custom fabricated enclosures that look and fit like they came with the vehicle.

Speaker Replacement

Replacing factory speakers is a great place to start, adding an amp to power them is even better. Safe & Sound Mobile Electronics has an incredible selection of specialty front and rear speakers for any car or configuration. Over eighty coaxial and component separates on working displays at each store. Listen with your favorite music and let your own ears decide. We specialize in custom fabrication of tweeter pods and door panels allowing us to place speakers in the optimal position and still have that high end, factory look.

Head Units

Safe & Sound Mobile Electronics can install a new head unit in any car. When we refer to the head unit, we're referring to the stereo in your dash. Replacing the head unit is not only the most convenient way to integrate your smartphone or portable player, but it is often also the most affordable as well. Getting a head unit that easily integrates your devices is an easy first step to getting the latest in new car infotainment without having to buy a new car. There are a wide range of models, we have more than forty units on working displays in both stores, the largest selection on display in the area. We stock hundreds of vehicle specific mounting kits and interfaces options, vehicle-specific all at a broad range of price points to fit any budget or vehicle.

Processors / Line Output Converters

Integrating with a factory system is the number one use for most of our processors. It all started with the equaliser. When just a bass and treble control is simply not enough, enter the processor. High end units can take a speaker level input from a factory radio and elimate curves designed to make dirt cheap factory speakers sound better and make your new aftermarket system sound awesome. Using expert ears, ociloscopes and real time analizers, we can tune up to 30 band per channel equalizers, time alighnment and digital crossover to achieve any desired result.

Factory Radio Adapters

Factory Radio adapters allow you to keep your factory radio while adding functionality. You can control your smartphone or portable player through a wired connection without needing to completely replace or upgrade your stereo. With compatible factory stereos you can choose by artist, song, album or genre. Information is displayed on existing screens and control with stereo and/or streering wheel buttons. Satellite radio can often be integrated instead of that goofy portable unit that sits on your dash.

Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling and Streaming

Nothing to plug in, nothing to connect when you get in the car. The phone rings your the callers name and number comes up on the screen with large buttons to answer or not. You entire phone calling list is displayed on the screen. No more missed calls digging for your phone in a pocket under the seatbelt or getting tickets for holding a phone in your hand (holding a cell phone while driving is illegal in VA, MD, DC and WV). Stream your music from your phone or device wirelessly!

Internet Radio

Pandora and similar internet radio services provide your own personal radio stations, based on your preferences and can be displayed in your car just like a traditional radio. Album artwork and titles are displayed on-screen. Thumbs up and thumbs down buttons allow you to easily and ergonomically fine tune your preferences.

FM Modulators

The least expensive way to get a signal from your device into a factory radio that has no aux input is with an FM modulator. It's basicallly a tiny wired or wireless FM radio station under your dash, it broadcasts on unused frequencies and plays like any other FM radio station except with content you choose. Yes there is a sound quality sacrifice when compared to a direct input or aftermarket radio but they can be usable and static/hiss free.

Can you imagine a world without GPS technology to get you to your destination?

It's tough to remember, but it wasn't all that long ago when drivers traded in their street atlases for internet maps and portable GPS devices. Now finding your way is easier than it's ever been with complete in-dash navigation and entertainment systems that can be installed into any vehicle.



Why Can't I just Use my Cell Phone? We agree — your smartphone is awesome, and it does everything besides make you a sandwich. There are tons of ways we can integrate your phone into your car to make your life easier (ask us how!). But when it comes to navigation, an in-dash nav system has some pretty big advantages over smartphone navigation apps.

1. Using your phone in your hand while driving isn't safe, and in most places it's just plain illegal. And what happens when an important call comes through? You have to make that crucial decision — ignore Mom and face her wrath, or get lost in the sketchy part of town. Yikes! Again, using cell phones for GPS is illegal in many states.

2. When your map and turn-by-turn directions are on a large screen that never moves from the dash and never changes perspective, there really isn't a more convenient way to get where you need to go. No cell phone service? No problem!

3. Plus, for those of you who enjoy adventuring a little "off the beaten path", the satellite technology behind in-dash navigation does not depend on a mobile internet or network connection of any sort... So even when your 4G phone gets little or no signal, you're never lost!

Navigation is Just the Tip of the Iceberg Today's in-dash navigation systems come with so many advanced features that you can't really compare them to any other standalone device out there.

* Spoken Directions

* MP3/CD/DVD Entertainment

* Built-in Bluetooth

* Extensive Points of Interest Database

* Built-In Gyroscopes to Detect Vehicle Direction

* Live Traffic Services w/ Alternate Route Options

* Satellite/HD Radio

* Big, Easy-to-Use Touchscreens

* Expanded Nav Features

We specialize in matching the factory look of your vehicle

When you get navigation installed, what you're really getting is a complete "infotainment solution" that is conveniently located where it should be: always safely within reach. Navigation in-dash is much more than just navigation! And, AS ALWAYS... Make sure you have a professional install your navigation unit. Your car is complex, so maybe chose a different DIY project and trust this one to professional installers like ours who will make sure your navigation system is installed correctly and safely the first time!
