Sony RSX-GS9 Hi Resolution Head Unit BMW 3 Series

Make: BMW

Model: 3 Series

Mission: Upgrade BMW radio system and speakers

 

This customer wanted to upgrade their BMW’s speakers and improve their speaker sound. The Sony Hi-Resolution Audio Head Unit (RSX-GS9) was the perfect solution.

We rebuilt this BMW 3’s doors and added 3 Sony mid-range speakers including tweeters. In addition to the tweeters in the door, we added Sony Hi-Definition tweeters on the dashboard. The Sony Audio Super Tweeters use an ultra-high frequency reproduction range over 50 kHz.

 

The RSX-GS9 that we added is a high resolution head unit which is one the best sounding head units available on the market for the audiophiles amongst you. This is true high resolution audio.

It allows for a great sound (up to 5.6 MHz/1bit for DSD through USB-DAC). It has a wide codex support: AAC, WMA, AIFF, ALAX, DSD, WAV, MP3 & FLAC. It’s Bluetooth ready too.

The Sony RSX-GS9 has simple clean lines and a brushed aluminium front making it desirable for those who admire the classy minimalist look – a far cry from most standard units available on the market today. This unit suits all types of car, but they look especially good in classic cars.

You can connect your Apple iPhone or Android device with the dedicated SongPal App (available on app stores) to fully control and customise your sound.

BMW E61 Poor remote and FM

BMW

 

5 series E61

 

Mission: Diagnostics and rectify no remote keys or radio reception

 

The common issues on the E61 are that the cars remote alarm key failed to work and the radio reception on FM and MW was very poor.

 

BMW in their wisdom placed the amplifier for all these functions in the outer part of the cars tailgate and the wires run via the tailgates hinges. The wires corrode and break which causes amplifier issues.

 

BMW dealers normally quote for a new amplifier and car harness but we can repair the parts at a fraction of the cost.

Also we can de-activate the speed dependant control for the folding mirrors, so you can open the mirrors whilst driving at any speed.

BMW 3 touring

Model: BMW 3 Series

 

Make: Touring E91

 

Problem: The customer reported that his BMW 3 touring had poor radio reception (on FM and MW) and he also reported issues with his remote control not responding. In addition the BMW bluetooth system would not work with his Apple iPhone 5. Job The radio reception and key fob issue was traced to the cars Amplifier and cable section that is located under the rear spoiler; we removed the spoiler and replaced the amplifer with a new unit. The main harness was also damaged, BMW would only supply a whole new harness ata silly price so we repaired the harness with custom cable looms. Once the amplifier was fitted we coded the car and tested, the Am and FM signal reception was now perfect. And his remote alarm keys worked fine from any distance. The next job was to sort out the factory Bluetooth system, it was quite old and needed a full software update which we completed via the MOST ring. Once updated we coded the bluetooth unit and tested. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 now worked fine. Job done.
