We have an exciting audio installation to do this week on this Orange Mean Machine..!!
This was one of our more challenging audio installations due to lack of space both for the audio equipment, and for working in the car! None the less we are able to upgrade the factory fitted audio system to something much, much better using the Focal PS-165 Front Component Speakers, which feature a 6.5" woofer to replace the stock 5" units. This required a little bit of modification to the internal door skin and some careful MDF work to get the angle where the speaker meets the door cards just right.
The doors were first treated to a complete Dynamat makeover prior to the installation of the woofers, and the tweeters were fitted into the windscreen A pillars to replace the existing ones, again not a simple job due to the factory tweeter being bonded in to the fiberglass structure, which was also trimmed in Alcantara.
The factory fitted rear panel sub-woofer was also given a makeover by fitting a much better JL Audio Sub-Woofer, again with some modification required, and lots more Dynamat and tweaking of the enclosure to get the right sound.
This is not the sort of job you would get done at Halfords!
