SMB West sprinter audio upgrade

What upgrades have you had SMB do for the audio/navigation/backup video? We are in the final stage of determining modifications to our Sprinter 4x4 150 plan for the Sprinter that should arrive any day now. We worked out some details 2 years ago, but we are wondering what changes have come about and recommendations for the system.

We like our music, with albums on iPhone. Would you recommend upgraded radio or a standalone system? Last go around SMB’s contractor recommended a Kenwood ### and subwoofer. Cheers

We really like the integration of the Apple CarPlay feature, both for music and navigation. Suggest that be on your list.

We went with the full on audio upgrade. I don't regret it at all. But both my wife and I love crystal clear audio.

However, my perspective is probably not rational nor normal.

I'm the guy who did an aftermarket $10K audio upgrade to my TRD Pro 4Runner by Ballard Custom Audio (great plug for Bill there), including a full-on removal of the interior for sound deadening and complete new control head, speakers, amplifiers, custom subwoofer and enclosure.

There's nothing like rocking Pearl Jam or Soundgarden at full volume rolling up a remote logging road..

Attached is our upgrade when the van was being built at SMB West. The upgrade cost total was $8200.

This did include the COMPUSTAR system so wasn't completely audio.

I will say the sound quality from the SMB West upgrade is top quality. Absolutely no complaints.

Very nice system. I will use it as a guide when negotiating with SMB. Do you use the AUX audio input at galley?
