Simon, the proud owner of a 2021 Amarok, approached us with concerns about the lackluster factory sound system and infotainment system that didn’t live up to the car’s premium feel and powerful V6 engine. We listened to his requirements and crafted a plan to create an awesome sound system that would match the vehicle’s excellence.


Starting from scratch, we replaced the factory head unit with a 10″ wireless CarPlay screen, instantly adding a touch of luxury to the interior. We then embarked on a thorough soundproofing process, treating the doors with multiple layers of sound-absorbing materials. This not only prevents the sound from being tinny but also creates an enclosed environment similar to a home audio enclosure.


To maximize the performance of the system, we installed high-quality speakers, including front component speakers, rear coaxial speakers, and a custom-fit subwoofer enclosure housing a JL Audio TW3 10″ subwoofer. With the Helix DSP FOUR amplifier, we fine-tuned the sound to deliver exceptional audio clarity, centered stage imaging, and a balanced frequency response. Simon’s request for slightly sharper highs was also met, showcasing the versatility of the DSP amplifier.


The entire installation was expertly organized, with premium wiring and neatly arranged cables, ensuring both signal integrity and a clean aesthetic. The amplifiers were securely mounted behind the rear seat, without compromising its functionality. Integration of a subwoofer remote control knob allows Simon to adjust the bass output on the go, catering to different music sources and personal preferences.


The result? Simon’s ecstatic reaction says it all – “THIS IS A FIRST-CLASS SOUND!” You can watch his genuine excitement in the video we recorded. This upgrade exemplifies one of the many ways we can enhance a Volkswagen Amarok, and we hope you appreciate the attention to detail and craftsmanship that went into this project.
