Sharing my CT200h, it's audio build, and other improvements.

As a brief background, I am based in Manila, Philippines. I acquired the CT200h early this year (2012). Having been an audio enthusiast (car, portable and home) for a good number of years, I was keen to build a good audio system whilst keeping the OEM feel of the car.


Enjoy the pics:

Speakers: Dominations D28 tweeters and Dominations D53neo carbon midrange in Custom sail panel (Danish Acoustics Hexdym midbass in stock location)


Main source unit: New Ipad


Digital Transport: Cambridge Audio ID100


Glove compartment install:
Dominations Corpus Callosum Processor module (top)
Customized regulated power supply for ID100 and stock headunit converter to RCA out (bottom)



Subwoofers: Focal 5ws in Custom enclosures in rear door locations


Amplifiers: Sands David M475
Processor: Dominations Corpus Callosum main unit


Trunk Lay-out: Fully functional trunk with fully-accessible spare wheel


Trunk goes back to OEM look


Rear door goes back to OEM look


Exterior enhancement: Tanabe Normal Feel coilovers + 19" Motegi FF7 in 235-35-19 Dunlop SPs



and more recently,

Safety upgrade to Big Brake Rotors


Custom shoes from AutoArt: 19" AutoArt VYX in Gold Lip/ Rivet and Pearl Fascia>

Appreciate the comments Dez, 2013NGCT, and RTIS250.

Plan for the audio install was underway even before I took delivery of the car.

Audio install gets kudo's but c'mon, you REALLY drive with an iPad blocking everything like that???? wth

If you are going to use any tablet please at least make it look OEM!

It seems you really planned the rest of the car stereo....?

Thank you for the comments, s4play.

Yes, with Manila traffic, when I do not need any more than the ECO setting, I use the Ipad. Bigger display to choose my music.

When driving in the freeway, I use the sttock headunit if I brought CDs. If not, I use an iTouch (as taken in this picture)

As for the OEM-look, I was hesitant to replace the stock headunit due to its size and placement. Instead, I retained it's full functionality; and had a custom hi-lo input converter created. (converts speaker wire outputs to RCA outputs with individual gain settings).

Fortunately, I'm able to have these flexibilities due to my processor. It is able to receive and decode digital signal (from the Ipad and the iTouch) as well as analog signal (from the stock headunit). Selectable input with a press of a button.



Another reason for not permanently integrating a tablet was on practicality, In my mind, I have the flexibility to use both my Ipad and iTouch inside and outside of the car environment.

Fair question. You are correct sir, my system remains to be a work-in-progress.

2013, bone stock except for the TSWs. Next up tint and a drop. Not sure if I'm going with tanabe coils or road magnet springs.
