Eclipse AVN827GA now in stock! | 1st September 2011
bar has been raised again. I know I said that about the
AVN726 but it did back then and its new sibling has
almost thrown the bar away.
Almost every conceivable feature or function you could
imagine (and some you probably haven't even thought of)
are in this unit.
The three key factors for the new Eclipse unit are
High Quality, Ease of Use and Connectivity.
They hit each nail on the head. Nothing is easier to
pair with Bluetooth. Full compatibility with iPhone and
does upload iphone phonebook , Off-road Mapping and
Voice Control are just a couple of the amazing features
in this new unit.
It has retained the built in steering wheel controls
plus has an upgraded 7 band Equaliser to enhance the

asking it to take you somewhere, search for a song or
dial a contact on your phonebook. This is truly hands
Extra alerts show school zones and the speed changes at
different times of the day. Accuracy is amazing and
changed my speed alert within 10 meters of crossing the
line in a school zone. You can have just a visual alert
or visual and audible alert if required for many road
situations and hazards.

This was in my car within hours of landing and cant wait
to get back in my car to play with it. This is simply

Soundracer V8, V10 and V12 | 12th May 2011
you buy a V6 Commodore and wish you had bought the V8?
Well now you can enjoy the main difference of that V8
sound for only $60!!
No its not a new exhaust .... its the Soundracer FM
This is a crazy but extremely cool piece of work. What
is does is simply plug into your cigarette lighter
socket and then tunes into an FM station on your radio.
It then picks up the revs of the engine from the
electrical signal sent through the car from the
alternator. So as you rev your car the sound comes
though your speakers via your sound system. There are
three models, a V8, V10 and V12. Turn your Honda Civic
into a Ferrari, a Lamborghini or Clubsport with the
flick of a switch.
The unit is also an FM Modulator that will allow you to
play portable MP3 players through your stereo if you
don't have the option of an auxiliary lead. It is great
value for this feature alone!! Add the thrill of feeling
like your in a exotic car for less than a tank of fuel.

Mobile Solutions Boot Camp Perth 2011 |
14th April 2011
We have been extremely fortunate to have had Mr Bryan
Schmitt from Mobile Solutions USA, run a Car Audio
Technical Boot Camp in Perth for members of the Car
Audio Masters Group. Most but not all of Alberts Car
Stereo stores are CAM members.
See the CAM website for details.
After a successful seminar in Brisbane and Melbourne he
saved the best till last.
Topics included advanced router techniques, fabrication,
fibreglass, system tuning and factory integration.
All of these things we have been doing for many years
but Brian has helped us reinvent the wheel.
So all those who want a tricky boot install or need your
system tuned, we are now better equipped with new RTA's,
Oscilloscopes and phase detectors to ensure your audio
system is giving you all it can.
Not all Alberts Stores attended so choose carefully
where you go.
Of course there is only one .... Alberts Morley :o)

|| Alpine marine
| 23rd October 2010
The weather has finally broken and is warming up. These
warm days with blue skies and light breezes makes you
throw the cover off the boat and head to the water. Only
to find the old stereo has rusted away over the winter
months or spiders and cockroaches have made it their
Luckily Alpine have just the fix for you. The new CDA118
fully marine CD/MP3/Tuner to the rescue.
This unit does not need a cover so no more lifting the
lid to turn up the volume.
You can also connect your iPod/iPhone as well as being
able to play music from your thumbdrive.
If you want control of the stereo from another location,
you simply add the MC10 wireless marine remote. This
remote control will operate all the functions of the
stereo and give you feedback via an LCD display. No more
running cables back to the unit. All you need is power
and that's it!!
On larger vessels you can even control multiple
zones. You can listen to the radio in the galley and the
iPod on the fly bridge at the same time!
WOW!!! Now that is versatility at its best.
Add some Alpine Marine speakers and your done!
This system has been installed on the new Coraline craft
used by FishingWA on the series going to air on Chanel 7
this summer. All reports so far from Harry and his crew
is now they are a part time party boat as well. He said
it is the best system ever installed on any boat they
have used. And there have been many.
Pop in for a look today! Or if you are passing Boat City
in Balcatta (where the boat is kept when they are not
filming) you can check it out in the boat.
Plus you can have a closer look at the amazing range of
Coraline Boats on hand.
|| Alpine PDX
Audiophile Amplifiers | 21st October 2010
Alpine have extended their range of compact digital
amplifiers and at the same time have raised the bar.
With upgraded components and power supplies the new
range sound amazing for a digital amplifier. Super crisp
clean sound to drive your speakers to a whole new level.
The added bonus is the new improved amplifiers are the
same price as the old models.
The extra added bonus is the older models are still in
range and have been reduced in price. Many good reasons
to get your hands on a new PDX Alpine amplifer.
|| Digital Radio |
17th October 2009
Digital radio is here! Along with it some confusion
about what it is.
We have people thinking because the radio has a digital
display that it is digital radio. Not so.
We also have the issue where you see on current CD
Tuners something saying DAB ready, XM digital radio
ready or SIRIUS digital radio ready. These are great if
you are overseas but the powers that be in Australia
thought we should go our own way and have a different
system so EVERYTHING currently available WONT work.
We should see some CD Tuners next year with DAB+ tuners
There is one solution though should you be an early
adopter and want the latest.
The PURE Highway unit is a DAB+ receiver. It will pick
up AM and FM digital radio broadcasts which can be heard
through your existing radio using the built in FM
modulator. This is not ideal but none the less will work
with any factory or after market radio. If you have a
unit in the dash that has an aux input you will get
better performance by using that method.
This unit sells for $299. We have a special price in
store should you mention this article.

|| When is MB
Quart not an MB Quart |
30th September 2009
Since the beginning of time, or close enough, the
speaker of choice for those who wanted a no compromise,
competition winning loud speaker was MB Quart.
Over time things happen with some businesses purchasing
names of companies that needed financial assistance.
The same applies in the motor industry like GM selling
Hummer to a Chinese company. Now if you roll over your
Hummer you will see a little sticker on the bottom
saying made in China!
This also happened to our much loved MB Quart. They
needed some help financially so along to the rescue an
American company Maxsonics. Over time as the Americans
do, they think, to heck with making these speakers in
Germany, we can get a copy made in China for a fraction
of the price. So off they go with the ownership of the
MB Quart name (but the ownership of the technology) and
try and copy the technology in China. As some websites
say "EPIC FAIL"!! Not only do they look fairly ordinary
they sound ...... well ..... not good!
As Thomas from the old MB Quart German factory told us,
its like making a violin in Switzerland with techniques
passed down from one generation to another. You take the
violin to China and they can make a copy that will look
the same in every way. But try and play it and it will
sound like a strangled cat
This is why our much loved MB Quart speakers are now
called German Maestro. Yes ... it is taking a while to
get our head around the name change but the sound is
what we really want.
Summing up if you see MB Quart speakers that are
made in China, leave them alone!

|| Monster Cable |
12th September 2009
For many years people have referred to large speaker
cable or any hi-end cable as "Monster Cable". When in
fact it wasn't Monster Cable at all!!
The Monster Cable brand have always produced cables that
do sound better than anything else available in its
The history of Monster Cable started many years ago with
the head monster himself Noel Lee. I extremely lucky to
meet him and be shown how and why his products worked so
well. The only problem was that Australian distributor
didn't see the need to bring in the car audio cables and
concentrated only the Hi-Fi cables. Until now!
I am grateful to Drew Stibbards who imports all the best
brands available in car audio such as Dynaudio, ARC
Audio and TRU Technologies to name a few, who is now
bringing in Monster Cable for the car.
There isn't many easier ways to upgrade the sound
quality of your sound system that installing these
We have a range of Monster Cable RCA leads in stock now!
Navigation | 28th January 2009
It's finally here!!! Yes its true, the unit we have been
waiting on for around 15 years has arrived.
The Alpine PMDB100ED is a portable navigation system
that can moved from car to car. The trick is that if you
have an in dash Alpine DVD screen you can plug in via
the supplied accessory kit to the screen and control it
from the touch screen. How good is that!! It also comes
with an external GPS antenna so the main navigation unit
when connected to an Alpine screen can be hidden in the
glovebox or out of the way.
So all of you with an Alpine screen in the dash can now
have touch screen navigation for only $899.
With the way the dollar is going the price will only go
up so be quick!!
|| Formula Tech
Dyno Centre | 21st December 2008
To tune or not to tune ....... that is the question!
Well ...... tune it is. I had the pleasure of Meeting
Brett Stewart from Formula Tech Dyno Centre today, who pulled out
his magic wand (laptop) and weaved some magic on my VZ
Clubby. I was amazed how bad my car used to run until it
was tuned properly. Not only more power, but how it gets
there impressed me the most. Especially in the mid range
the engine pulls harder and does it much smoother than
before. With a
Kostecki cold air system
and Genie Cat back exhaust as the only modifications,
Brett's tune squeezed out 361rwhp. Not bad for a stock
LS2!! I will keep you posted about the improvement on
fuel economy once I have gone through a couple of tanks
of BP Ultimate 98. If the expected fuel economy does
happen it will be a very tidy bonus.
Having a look around the stable of cars Brett has,
you have to be impressed. He builds, tunes and drives
them himself. Not only a Jack of all trades but a master
of them as well. He is off on a much earned holiday for
most of January but if your looking for
modifications or tuning, make sure you tell him I sent
you so I can get some brownie points. The Clubby will be
going back for some extractors and high flow cats early
next year to enhance the performance and exhaust note.
We will report back on the progress.

Eclipse Release Supercat Navigation
| 1st November 2007
It is here!! The Eclipse AVN2210p CD/Tuner/Navigation
unit has arrived. This is the little brother to the
AVN6000. This is for those who didn't need a DVD player
in the front of the car, but did want a CD/Tuner with
MP3 and Navigation. This is the unit for you plus it has
a built in bluetooth phone kit. For those who have a USB
thumbdrive you can plug this in via the front USB port
also. But wait ..... there's more .... as you can see
from the image above the Navigation is a special unit
made by by TomTom that docks into the headunit. This is
then used as an aditional display for the CD and radio
as well as the Navigation. You can simply unclip the
TomTom unit and use it as a personal Navi unit with its
own built in battery or in another car with the mounting
kit and extra power supply. The units Navigation
performance is enhanced by the extra GPS antenna and
connection to the speed sense wire on the car for
greater accuracy. The turn by turn instructions also
come from the front right speaker not to interrupt the
audio to the passengers while still giving clear
instructions to the driver. With a 200watt built in
amplifier, three pairs of 5 volt RCA pre amp outputs and
a host of other features, this has got to be on the
shopping list for most people with a fetish for hi-tech
With a price tag of only $1399 this is the hit model for
Eclipse this season.
As with the AVN6000, anyone buying one this month will
also have a choice of a GolfingWA series2 DVD or
FishingWA DVD as a bonus gift. You will also go in the
running to win tickets to the Perth Wildcats home games.

Alberts Car Stereo Morley and Eclipse to be major
sponsor of FishingWA!!
| 11th March 2007
the help of our favourite brand of Car Audio, Eclipse,
we at Allberts Car Stereo Morley will become one the
major sponsors of one of Perth's most watched TV shows,
Fishing Western Australia. There will be competitions to
win products at the end of the the series plus some
along the way. We have installed an AVN6000 Eclipse
DVD/Navigation unit plus reverse camera into the new
Toyota Landcruiser that the FishingWA team use to get
around our great state. The team agrees it is the
easiest and best unit of its type they have ever used. I
will also be on the road with the team as part of the
crew to offer support and take more photos for the
FishingWA magazine and website. The magazine is now
bigger and better than ever offering not only fishing
but also offroad and camping information. All this in a
full gloss magazine loaded with local information to
help you enjoy the whole fishing experience in safety is
a credit to the FWA Media Team. They will start shooting

This unit is a double din DVD player with dual DVD
drives. One is for playing CD or DVD and the other is
for DVD Navigation. It also has an AM/FM Tuner, 200watt

Reversing Cameras Save Lives | 11th March
Do you have a Toyota Landcruiser, Prado, Tarago or Camry
with the Navigation monitor in the dash? Then we can
help you with the REVERSING CAMERA from Eclipse. It
plugs straight into the factory screen in the dash and
connects to the reverse light wire. So when you select
reverse, the camera displays on the in dash screen
automatically. No need for reverse sensors when you can
actually see what you are doing. Its especially good
when reversing up to a trailer or boat. YOU can see when
to stop with out getting out of the car or asking for
help from the neighbour. The camera is only $399 and can
be installed for around $150 depending on the vehicle.
If you drive a Ford BA/BF Falcon or a Ford Territory
with a colour screen, we now have the solution for you
also. If you have installed an Alpine, Clarion or
Eclipse aftermarket DVD Screen then you are also able to
install a reverse camera to these units. Once you have
used a reverse camera you will wonder how you ever
reversed without one. Our thoughts are with those who
have lost a child through a driveway accident. There
have been far too many of these accidents over the last
year or so and we all hope this will stop with the
addition of these must have safety devices. For more
JHP Vehicle Enhancements |
13th July 2006
As some of you may already
know, I have upgraded the VYII 285KW Clubsport for the VZ
297KW Clubsport. And what a weapon it is. When you look
at it on paper the specs show only 12 kw of power
increase and 20nm of torque which really is nothing to
get excited over. Then you plonk your butt in the seat,
hit the go fat pedal and hang on. Whooly dooly the LS2
is a whole new animal. It feels like double the
horsepower. Truly amazing.
The only things I added was the rip shifter and R8 rims
from JHP and the Cat back exhaust from Genie. The
exhaust sounds great and added a extra few kilowatts as
a bonus. Currently pulling 328hp at the wheels which is
not too shabby for a stock LS2.
The only problem with phase one of the upgrade was that no one in Perth could sell me
genuine VZ Clubsport R8 rims no matter how much I was
prepared to pay. I became quite frustrated and
turned to our old friend Google and stumbled across
JHP Vehicle Enhancements in Melbourne. Not only did they
sell me the original R8 rims I was after but also the
amazing RIP shifter that I was chasing. If you own a
Commodore or Monaro of any description and are looking
for performance upgrades, get in touch with Phil and the
who blew me away with their customer service and

The latest addition to the list
of MUST HAVE gadgets in my car is the Garmin navigation
system. I never thought I would use navigation in the
car but boy was I wrong. The Garmin takes only seconds
to install and is just as easy to use. Just plug it into
the cigarette lighter and stick it on the windscreen and
that's it. It comes with software and a USB cable so you
can update maps via the internet. It covers all of
Australia so if you are planning an interstate trip you
can take it with you and use it in the hire car at the
other end of the trip. You can even buy maps for most

systems costing around $5000 installed in the car, the
