7 REASONS TO GET YOUR WINDOWS TINTED! - July 2017

Window tinting has become an insanely popular and important part of Cooper's business over the past couple of decades. Many of our customers come in for window tint JUST to change the appearance of their vehicle. But when we tell them all the things a high quality window film can do for them and their vehicle, they are often totally blown away. Here are 7 reasons for why we STRONGLY suggest that you get your windows tinted.

NUMBER ONE:

Window tint will decrease the amount of heat that is able to get inside your vehicle. Films we use from FormulaOne and LLumar can block up to 97% of the infrared heat (which is the heat you actually feel) from getting inside your vehicle. These products will drastically decrease the time your AC system has to work to cool down your vehicle. A sweet byproduct of this is increasing the lifespan of your AC system from it working less!

NUMBER TWO:

As stated above, reducing the interior heat can drastically reduce the use of your cars AC system, providing you energy savings - mainly better gas mileage, resulting in a savings at the gas pump! Who wouldn't want that?!

NUMBER THREE:

Reduce the fading of the interior of your vehicle! All of the window films that we use block at least 99% of Ultraviolet Rays, and some block more than 99% of UV Rays. UV rays are what fades out your carpet, seats, door panels, dashboards, wood trim, and other interior components. Reducing the fading of these components increases their life, as well as keeps the interior of your vehicle in better shape, giving you a higher resell value later!

NUMBER FOUR:

Reduce risks to your health while driving! Exposure to the sun is known to cause potential health risks to the eyes and skin. By blocking 99% of UV Rays, window film acts as a "sunscreen", shielding you and your family from harmful sun exposure while driving - something you risk every single day.

NUMBER FIVE:

All of the films we use offer glare reduction, some offering as much as 95% glare reduction. Glares while driving can totally blind your vision and create a seriously dangerous situation. Don't risk a serious accident due to glares.

NUMBER SIX:

Window film can increase the security and safety of your vehicle. In an accident, windows without film can shatter into thousands of tiny shards. Window film can act to hold the glass together in the event of an accident. It can also slow a thief down who is trying to shatter a window to break in.

NUMBER SEVEN:

Window film subjectively improves appearance! We have films and shades to satisfy any needs or desires! If you want something legally dark for privacy, we can do it! If you don't want to change the appearance but want to gain the benefits of everything listed above, we also have a film for you!

Full Harman Kardon System Overhaul in Mini Cooper - June 2017

Tristan recently had a customer with a new Mini Cooper come in wanting to overhaul and replace his entire factory Harman Kardon system. Harman Kardon systems like this are always deeply integrated into the vehicle making this install very time consuming and everything had to be planned and executed perfectly. Another huge concern of the customer was to still be able to use the back cargo area for cargo AND he wanted everything to look like it was from the factory. Tristan custom fabricated a box to house the JL Audio subwoofer (with the prefect air space spec) AND act as an amp rack for the Alpine amplifiers and the DSP signal processor. The entire box and rack are stored under a custom piece to keep everything hidden and to keep the factory look retained. He also installed two sets of Gladen speakers in the factory locations to drastically improve the mids and highs of the system.

Check out the video below to see the sub box and amp rack being fabricated, as well as Tristan walking you through the entire process.

At Cooper Tint & Electronics we pride ourselves on being able to offer our customers anything from a simple speaker swap and amp install, to a full overhaul of factory systems with any custom fabrication you can dream up.

We take your dream system and turn them into a reality that will change the way you drive forever!

Cooper Tint & Electronics Updated Showroom - May 2017

We have been hard at work the last few weeks completely redesigning our showroom. We have brought in a few new products and many new displays. One of the biggest things we have changed is picking up FormulaOne and Vista films in the last few months.

LLumar has "LLumar" films in both automotive and architectural films(for homes and businesses.) The LLumar lines are great films with great warranties and are tried and true in the industry. However, they also have higher end lines for improved comfort and performance. FormulaOne is the higher end automotive line and Vista is the higher end architectural line.

We are one of two shops in Oklahoma City that carry and install FormulaOne for automotive vehicles. We guarantee we have the best prices for all window films, especially FormulaOne!

Check out the video below to see our updated showroom. Come by and see us or call us today to learn how we can change the way you drive your vehicle forever!


JL Audio FiX & TwK F150 - March 2017

The inside of vehicles get nicer every year. They are coming from the factory with great features and great looking radios and dashboards. Even with their great looks, one place the manufacturers always cut costs on is the sound system and the quality of components they use to create the audio in their vehicles. We have so many customers coming in with brand new vehicles that are not happy with the sound in their vehicle that they just bought BUT they don't want to change the radio or look of the dash at all. JL Audio is making some incredible components and processors so we can swap the factory audio equipment for incredible sounding JL equipment - not changing the look of the factory radio or dash - leaving you with crisp and clean audio to have your own personal concert anytime you are in your vehicle.

Check out the video below to see exactly how this is done and what we use to get you the best sounding audio possible.

Ford Excursion - December 2016

One of my long-time customers brought in his 00' Ford Excursion for a full security and remote start system. This truck is highly modified and the customer is constantly traveling so his main concern was for every aspect of the vehicle to be protected and to also be able to start the vehicle remotely, which led us to a full Viper Security/Remote start system and a multi HD camera and DVR system. The Viper system the customer decided on was the Viper 5906v with a 2-way color OLED transponder and multiple add-ons. We added a glass break sensor to detect any tampering or breaking of the vehicle's glass, a digital tint motion sensor to protect against wheel theft or the vehicle being raised to be towed, a back-up battery system to keep the security system active even when the vehicle's battery has been cut or disconnected, and lastly SmartStart GPS to be able to control and receive notifications about the vehicle from anywhere in the world as long as cell phone signal is active. Since the vehicle has a diesel engine, I also programmed it to Wait to Start, which will turn the ignition on and wait for the factory Wait to Start light to go out before cranking the engine.

The camera system consists of a DVR system and three full HD cameras. The DVR system can utilize up to four cameras, but in this application we are only using three of the four cameras. I mounted one camera on each side of the overhead console to give a full view of the driver and passenger areas and doors. The third camera is mounted above the rear hatch and gives field of view of the entire interior of the vehicle. The DVR system is mounted in the glove box and is an SD card driven system that can run full-time, only when the ignition is switched on, or to start recording when the G-Sensor picks up impact. The system is set up to be viewed off the Kenwood DNN-990 that I previously installed for the customer, or it can be viewed externally using the SD card.

Overall, the customer was extremely pleased with the security system and he and his vehicle will be protected anywhere that he travels to!

Ford F250 - November 2016

Our customer wanted to upgrade the factory navigation and audio system in a 2011 Ford F250 Lariat King Ranch. The factory system had component speakers in the front & rear and a small 8” subwoofer. Our customer’s main concerns were more volume, more clarity in the system, and much more bass than the factory system provided. He also wanted to add time alignment for “Home Theater Quality” sound. I decided the JL Audio TWK-88 would be best to take the factory radio signals and clean them up while also adding listening position control. This would also benefit EQing the system for best possible sound. I also added the JL FIX-86 to correct time-delayed factory outputs while retaining the factory source unit. The customer and I chose the JL Audio C5-570 components for the speakers and I mounted them in the factory locations. I fed theses speakers with a JL HD 600/4 amplifier (150w x 4). I also placed Dynamat around all four speakers to improve the sound quality. For the subwoofer, the customer chose the JL Audio 13TW5 in the SuperCrew JL Stealthbox. The subwoofer was paired with a JL HD 750/1.

This setup provided fantastic results immediately. A huge benefit of the TWK-88 is its state-of-art digital signal processor that was engineered to provide us with world-class system tuning capabilities. I will be working closely with this customer in the future to tweak and tune this system to achieve even better results!
