Reus Audio System Upgrade

Hi guys,

I'm exploring the idea of an aftermarket audio system upgrade, and the prevailing option on the TMC forums is the Reus Audio System. What I've typically seen is if enough people are interested in an upgrade, he will fly out and perform them. Exact cost is an unknown but it appears to be roughly $3500 plus travel expenses. Including myself we have two in the South Florida area that are interested. From what I've seen, he'll come out if we can get at least four.

Are there any others that are interested? It doesn't have to be an ironclad commitment, just a general interest at this point. Once interest is drummed up, I can contact him and dig deeper into particulars.

Thanks!

What if you have the upgraded audio in your model S? I went to their website but nothing specific on Tesla. Light Harmonic is not shipping until March at this point. I may be interested.

I'd be interested. No doubt the audio improvement with Reus is sensible per feedback in other forums. I am also considering the NVX subwoofer/amp kit and currently looking for MS experienced installers in the South East area. As a personal preference I think the stock audio lacks range in lower freqs and NVX certainly takes care of that at a much lower price point that Reus that involves a major sound upgrade.

Note. I am new the forum, just took delivery -last -week- of an amazing 70D.

Welcome! That's a great find on the NVX subwoofer. If you find someone that can install please let us know! I'll see if I can find anybody as well. Even if we could only find someone reputable in the Tampa, Southwest, or Orlando areas, I'd be ok with making a full day of it to get it installed.

There is some progress. Found a company that can install the NVX package, name is off the hook out of Plantation and claim to have installed this in several MS, lead came from the Dania Service Center. Talked to [email protected] and sounded familiar with the system, quoted me $550 for the install. If anyone else is interested I can try and negotiate a group discount.

Related to it, I just bought the kit from Sonic Electronix and should be delivered by Tue-Wed. They offer a slightly lower price than Evannex, included free shipping and no tax. In addition they have a November special when signing to their mailing list which brought the total cost to $926 delivered and they included a black grill cover for free (have to ask for this).

Hope this helps. Let me know if anyone is interested to participate in the group discount. CX.

Oh, wow. I know exactly where they're located in Coral Springs. They have good Yelp reviews, too. Yes I'm definitely interested. I can see who else might be interested. If you talk to them, can you find out if there's a minimum before they'll give a discount?

Ok, so I talked to offthehook and got a $450 quote per car, 2 Teslas or more. Considering the labor intense job I think is a very good price. They have a specialist on Teslas on Wednesdays but with prior scheduling can accommodate other week days. Each job should take 4-5 hrs and can't handle more than 2 Teslas in one day. I will probably get my appointment for next Wednesday. CX.

Just took delivery of my 70D. Would definitely be interested in going in on the Reus upgrade if there's still interest. The stock audio system is very disappointing.

There's a lot of deliveries coming in during December. Hopefully we can get enough people.

I recommend you to visit Amplified right there in Tampa. They are located by the stadium. Talk to Danny, he's the owner. He can significantly enhance the sound system on your Tesla.

Here is their website. www.amplifiedautosports.com.
