A client reached out to us about upgrading his wife’s 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan audio system after seeing our excellent online reviews. He was looking to improve the sound in his wife’s vehicle as a gift. After consulting with her and figuring out what she didn’t like about the existing system, we put together a plan for upgrading the vehicle.
The Tiguan had the base audio package, and she was mainly unhappy with how harsh the OEM tweeters sounded. We added a Helix M5DSP amplifier with a built-in Digital Signal Processor to be able to specifically adjust how the factory system sounded and increase the volume with extra power. The fifth channel of the amplifier also gives her the option of adding a subwoofer in the future.
The Helix Match system offers a custom wire harness that plugs into the existing stereo harness, so we didn’t have to damage or tamper with the original factory wiring. This keeps the factory technicians at VW happy when doing any service on the vehicle.
The Tiguan owner was very happy with the change in sound and that we kept everything in her vehicle looking totally OEM.
