Holly Hill, Fla. – August 28, 2019 – Axxess by Metra Electronics® is now shipping the next generation AX-DSP-X Digital Signal Processor, two plug-n-play packages for Ford A2B amplifiers and two plug-n-play harnesses for Volkswagen. This new series was first announced at CES 2019 to expand and improve the original AX-DSP product line. Compared to the original AX-DSP, the new AX-DSP-X has 10 individually assigned output channels and an option to password protect settings via the Axxess DSP app for phones and tablets. It still includes chime control and digital amplifier turn-on capability, along with all of the other features of the original patented AX-DSP, (which had a 6 channel output without password protection settings). This new product replaces the original AX-DSP and works will all of the existing harnesses.

Complete Tuning Control: Installers will have full control to fine-tune each of the 10 channel outputs individually, controlled via Bluetooth® in the free app. The app makes tuning easy with a 31 band graphic EQ and up to 10ms time delay for each channel, with independent high, low and bandpass filters. Once tuning has been completed, installers can password protect their settings to prevent anyone else from adjusting and the information is stored for future recall.

Retain Features with a Built-in Interface: Utilizing Axxess’s data interface technology, the AX-DSP-X goes beyond what a traditional DSP can do and retains many of the features commonly lost when upgrading a sound system. Voice prompts, parking sensor chimes and other factory chimes are retained with adjustable volume control that many traditional DSPs cannot offer. This is a cost-effective solution for customers who want to retain their factory radio and improve their vehicle sound quality, while still retaining systems like SYNC® or OnStar®.

One Solution, Many Applications: The AX-DSP-X solution already works with a wide range of vehicle applications and systems, including OE or aftermarket, and digitally controlled amplifiers or analog audio, in addition to non-amplified vehicles that do not have chimes. The AX-DSP-X works with all of the existing AX-DSP harnessing and accessories and still offers the same easy installation behind the radio.

To mount aftermarket horizontal lightbars, auxiliary lights or safety flags onto rollbars, Metra PowerSports is introducing three new mounts in 3”, 1 3/16” and 2” sizes; the MPS-C02, MPS-C03 and MPS-C04. These mounts are made from high-strength billet aluminum that will never rust and have a durable crinkle coat finish to withstand the harshest weather conditions. They come with rubber inserts that allow the clamp to be held steadfast while protecting the mounting surface. The mounts provide precision alignment with 360 degrees of custom adjustability and work with most LED lightbars that have 6mm/8mm mounting bolts. The diameter sizes offered fit most bull bars or roll cages on Rhino®, Polaris RZR®, Teryx®, CAN-AM® or Jeep® applications.

Metra PowerSports is offering three new universal light brackets allowing for mounting aftermarket lightbars onto the bull bar, front bumper, hood, windshield or roll cage of off-road powersports applications. An installer-friendly design is engineered for a direct and easy bolt-on installation without any drilling, cutting or modifications. These brackets have high-carbon stamped steel material with a durable, weather-resistant black crinkle coat finish. Seven vehicle-specific light brackets are also being introduced with the same durable construction and crinkle powder coating. For ultimate performance, Heise LED Lightbars are recommended, but these brackets will work with a variety of aftermarket lighting brands.

Chrome LED Windshield Trim

The new generation II chrome LED windshield trim (BC-WSTSB14) has been upgraded with brighter flat-style LED lights. Made to fit 2014-up* Harley-Davidson models, it comes with 16 amber LED turn and running lights with a dim level for the running lights and bright level for the turning lights. A load equalizer, sold separately, may be required for operation, depending on the application.

Smoke Lens Turn Signals and Brake Lights

The USB input can play MP3, WMA or WAV music files and provide 1 amp device charging. The 3-inch pair of water-resistant speakers are capable of producing a peak stereo output of 20 watts each. Unlike other systems that use lower-quality plastic materials, this full metal construction sound system can take abuse from the elements and still perform season after season. The universal speakers mount to round highway handlebars with a diameter between 0.8125” and 1.1875” (20-30cm).

Holly Hill, Fla. – November 1, 2018 – The Install Bay® by Metra Electronics® is introducing a new line of low-profile LED replacement headlight bulbs. With a 3.1” (78.2mm) total length and a heat sink that is only 1.26” (32mm) in diameter, these bulbs fit in tight applications that traditional LED upgrades cannot touch. This new compact design is a great value and doesn’t compromise performance. By engineering a high-density fin design these bulbs stay as cool or even cooler than the traditional LED bulbs with bulky heat sinks or messy braid designs. The light output is equally impressive with a total of 6,000 lumens of cool white (6500K) illumination.

“The addition of this new product line allows Metra dealers to offer a cost-effective replacement LED bulb for budget-conscious drivers who still want the benefit of brighter, higher output LED lights,” says Joel Bransdorfer, Director of Product Development for The Install Bay. Kits are available in 20 of the most common sizes, including single and dual beam options. See all of the new products at SEMA in the Metra Electronics main booth 11629 (North Hall) and with their off-road, truck and powersports accessories at booth 37011 in the South Hall Upper Level.

Holly Hill, Fla. –  November 4, 2019 – Metra Electronics®, the leading manufacturer of aftermarket 12volt installation solutions, introduces twelve new automotive cameras and a universal mirror monitor from The Install Bay® at the 2019 SEMA Show. As more drivers see the value in upgrading their vehicles to reduce blind spots and prevent collisions, installers have an opportunity to provide quality aftermarket solutions at an affordable cost with this new value series from The Install Bay.

This affordable product line features ten universal automotive cameras and two commercial vehicle cameras with active or selectable parking lines. Active parking lines offer dynamic guidelines, lines that move according to the direction the vehicle is reversing. Those with the selectable parking line option allow the installer to turn the parking lines on or off by cutting a wired loop if the customer does not desire parking lines. Five of the cameras also have a selectable mirrored or non-mirrored image option that allows the installer to choose the customer’s desired image with a different colored loop and allows the cameras to be mounted on either the front or rear of the vehicle. These solutions are in stock now and shipping.

Universal Vehicle Cameras

The Install Bay has two new, universal surface mount cameras, the Surface Mount Camera (CC001) and the Surface Mount Camera with LEDs (CC003).

Universal Mirror Monitor

For an affordable replacement rearview mirror monitor upgrade, The Install Bay is introducing the Universal 4.3” Mirror Monitor (CCM01). With two camera inputs and signal sensing, this 4.3” LCD display mirror monitor can be mounted on any vehicle with its universal mount brackets, complete with screws and the harness. It features an integrated 4.3” display within the mirror monitor. (Cameras are sold separately)

For commercial vehicles demanding a heavy-duty solution, The Install Bay is offering two cameras in black or white housing options. These solutions are ideal for larger commercial vehicles or equipment, including tractor-trailers, and include a 32-feet/10-meter harness. The white camera can also blend in on boats if desired for marine applications. Both cameras come with IR lights for night vision, selectable parking lines, a 160-degree viewing angle, a 32-feet/10-meter harness, power adapter harness, hardware and a user manual.
