  • What is the Maxhaust Bridge?
    The centrepiece... The Maxhaust Bridge is the All-In-One interface for all Maxhaust products and the Bridge app. All Maxhaust extensions such as Active Sound and all future extensions such as air suspension, flap control, pedal tuning or ambient lighting are controlled and managed with the bridge.
  • Can there be disruptions in the vehicle?
    No. With a professional installation, there can be no malfunctions in the vehicle.
  • Do I have to install two loudspeakers if I have a double-pipe exhaust system (duplex)?
    No. It has nothing to do with the exhaust system. The sound spreads under the vehicle, so you can't tell if the sound is coming from the left or right.
  • Can I install the Active Sound System myself?
    Assembly is not difficult for a skilled person. presence of the The right tool is a prerequisite. Welding work is necessary when installing under the vehicle. These should always be from to be carried out by a specialist. However, our team is always available by phone for advice to the side.
  • Is the Maxhaust Bridge required?
    Yes, the bridge is the most important component for all Maxhaust extensions. In conjunction with the Bridge app, it controls and monitors all connected Maxhaust products. The bridge is the heart of the system.
  • Where are the HIGH SPEAKER installed?
    The "HIGH SPEAKER" is installed outside or under the vehicle. Mounting the HIGH SPEAKERS requires sufficient free space under the vehicle.
  • Where are the DEEP SPEAKER installed?
    The "DEEP SPEAKER" actuator can either be placed in the spare wheel well or directly installed under the vehicle. In both cases, the montage sets enough free space ahead.
  • Which vehicles can I retrofit with an Active Sound System and is it also available for my vehicle?
    The Maxhaust Sound System can be installed in any vehicle, whether petrol, diesel or electric be installed, which has a CAN-BUS. These are usually vehicles built after 2000. You can use the configurator to find out whether your vehicle is available. -->TO THE CONFIGURATOR<-- If your vehicle is not listed, please contact us. -->CONTACT US<--
  • Is the system installed visibly?
    If the DEEP SPEAKER is installed in the trunk, you can only see the pipe opening from below. If installed under the car, you can only see the speaker when you lie under the car. The HIGH SPEAKER, on the other hand, must always be installed on the vehicle underbody so that it is visible.
  • Can the system be controlled via my vehicle profiles or via other buttons?
    Yes. Most vehicles can also be controlled via the driving profiles, such as the "Drive Select" (Comfort, Auto, Dynamic) for Audi or the "Agility" profile for Mercedes. Additionally, buttons such as ESP or cruise control are also possible. The preferred variant can be set via the smartphone app.
  • Is the DEEP SPEAKER connected to the rear silencer?
    No. This only has disadvantages. On the one hand, the speaker could overheat and be damaged as a result, and on the other hand, the volume of the sound would be massively impaired. In other words, the system becomes quieter.
  • Does the vehicle have to be coded after assembly?
    No. It doesn't need to be coded. The system is ready for operation immediately after installation.
  • Can the system also be switched off?
    Yes. The system can (depending on the vehicle) be switched on and off using the original vehicle buttons and the app.
  • Can I install an extra button/switch?
    We do not offer an extra button or switch. The advantages are obvious. Who wants to lay extra cables and drill holes in the fittings when you can use the original vehicle buttons! If you still want a button, you can of course use a switch to interrupt the power supply to our modules and thus switch the system on and off.
  • What happens when the lease is returned?
    The system can be easily upgraded. When installed indoors, the holes are sealed with a closed rubber grommet. On rare occasions, the carpet insert may need to be replaced. So far we haven't had any negative experiences with leasing returns.
