Tint World Automotive Styling Centers has announced it completed one of the first audio and lighting system upgrades for a Tesla Cybertruck at its location in Orlando, Florida.

The Cybertruck runs on a 48-volt battery system. Car stereo professionals have struggled to power a conventional 12-volt audio system through Tesla’s proprietary power source.

“I’m proud of the innovation and expertise from our team. We were able to deliver something unique that many people in the industry have never tried. The Cybertruck upgrade proves Tint World’s value and opens new opportunities for us and the industry as a whole.” said Pete Muller, owner of Tint World Orlando.

Technicians at Tint World Orlando identified multiple 48-volt sources inside the Cybertruck and installed an auxiliary 12-volt battery with 48-volt converters to power a full transformation of the factory sound and lighting systems. The system includes 16 Arc Audio Reference Series speakers and an Arc Audio amplifier powering two Arc Audio subwoofers in a custom enclosure.

The wiring, accessories, and lighting feature products from Metra Electronics, including an under-glow system and custom-designed backlit emblem.

“We have seen some workarounds that have allowed other teams to develop major modifications on the Cybertruck, such as tapping into the Cybertruck’s 110-volt AC outlets to power aftermarket products. We wanted to use the 48-volt system rather than circumvent it. That makes this much more like a traditional car stereo install, and represents a huge step forward for potential aftermarket upgrades,” said Muller.

Tint World Automotive Styling Centers offer sales and installation of auto accessories, mobile electronics, audio and video equipment, security systems, custom wheels and tire packages, window tinting, vehicle wraps, paint protection films, detailing services, nano ceramic coatings, and more.
