One of our clients from Tamaqua, Pennsylvania, came back to Mobile Edge for some upgrades to his wife’s 2014 Nissan Sentra. We had recently tinted the windows and installed a radio, speakers and a remote car starter in his vehicle. He liked the upgrades so much that he wanted to surprise his wife with something similar. We worked through his shopping list and provided a quote to make the Nissan Sentra upgrade plan a reality.
Navigation Source Unit
Unlike what he used for his own car, the client chose a navigation system for his wife’s vehicle. We installed a Pioneer AVIC-5200NEX multimedia receiver in the dash. The AVIC-5200NEX includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration and control. We used a Metra 95-7618G dash kit, a Metra 70-7552 wire harness adapter and a 40-NI12 antenna adapter to complete the installation. For a final addition, we uploaded a Nissan logo to the radio to make it unique.
The client had chosen Hertz Dieci series speakers for his car, so picking similar models for his wife’s car was a no-brainer. We installed a set of DSK165.3 components in the front doors using PVC mounting adapters we machined in-house. We used a piece of Hushmat around the mounting location to act as a gasket and damp metal vibrations in the door.
For the rear of the vehicle, we installed a pair of 6 by 9-inch Hertz DCX690.3 three-way speakers in the factory locations in the rear deck. The large cone area of the 6×9 helps to produce impressive bass response to give the system a nice warm sound.
The client wanted the same remote starter in his wife’s Sentra as we had installed in his car. We based the system on a Compustar 7200S control module and added an Alarm It Kit that includes a siren, 3-in-1 security sensor and starter-kill circuit. The client chose the 2W901SS remote kit. The Prime 901 remote includes an LCD screen and two-way communication with up to 1 mile of range. We call this 10x power range.
To finish off the project, we applied 3M Color Stable tint on the side and rear windows. We used 35% film on the driver and passenger windows and 20% on the rear doors and rear window. 3M offers a nationwide five-year warranty on the tint.
