Honda S2000 Audio Upgrade with DAB.
The Honda S2000 has bags of potential for upgrading the audio system. The first thing to do is upgrade the head unit to something with Bluetooth and iPod connectivity or even integrated DAB radio. The new Alpine CDE-196BT is a perfect unit costing just £359 inc VAT fully fitted. This includes the DAB antenna, steering controls and a full 2 year warranty.
We keep the interface in stock allowing the dash controls to operate the volume as well as track up and down. The factory radio cover remains in place allowing the radio to be hidden from view and still operated by the separate controls.
The photo shows Alpine's newest CDE136BT fitted to Honda S2000 with cover panel still in place.
Next we upgrade the front speakers; a 6.5” component fits neatly with a custom made speaker baffle adding rigidity to the speaker mount. The doors and door panels have a serious lack of sound proofing which results in a tinny, hollow sound. This is corrected by the application of 3 rolls of Dynamat Extreme; one and a half rolls per side. This makes an incredible difference not only to the sound quality, bass reproduction and road noise but gives the door a whole different solid feel.
The first photo shows Dynamat applied to the inner skin of the door itself. The second photo shows Dynamat applied to the back of the door panel to reduce vibration and increase bass response.

This is a really impressive upgrade giving not only much improved sound quality but all the features you would expect from the latest head unit technology such as iPod, Bluetooth and DAB Radio. The DAB aerial is the in glass type which is almost invisible to look at.
The whole system supplied and fitted costs just £719 inc VAT, this includes a 2 year warranty.
Honda S2000 Intelli Sub 10 Subwoofer.
If you fancy a little more bottom end from your S2000 then why not add a subwoofer? An active sub can be fitted discreetly behind the passenger seat for improved bass extension, this can even be fitted to the factory radio if you don’t want to upgrade the other parts.
It makes a tremendous difference, especially driving with the roof down when it gets a bit noisier.
Intelli Sub 10” Active Subwoofer fits neatly behind the passenger seat, it's completely hidden from view and there is only around 80mm of lost leg room, the top of the seat will still recline fully back.
The additional cost of the Intelli Sub 10 subwoofer, fully fitted is £369 inc VAT
Honda S2000 Rear Parking Sensors.
Our 4-way rear parking sensors can be fitted to the S2000 to aid parking. We recommend audible only sensors as there is not an ideal position for the display. They are fully colour coded to the vehicle and have a full 3 year warranty.
The two middle sensors are fitted in the rebate just below the number plate.
Rear parking sensors take around half a day to fit and we have courtesy cars for your convenience. Price £299 inc VAT
