Holden Colorado

Audio System Upgrade

This Holden Colorado was the perfect example of working within restrictions.

How do we provide maximum bass without comprising on space?

We spent some time with our customer looking at different options while still taking into account it was a daily driver and workhorse, he would also be carrying more than one passenger almost all the time.

We decided on installing the subs in behind the rear seats. We knew it was a tough one with very minimal space behind there. After measuring up and researching we found our best option for the depth required would be a p3d4 8 inch Rockford Fosgate woofer. Being that an 8″ woofer doesn’t take much space across the back we set out to fit 4 (yes you read that right) woofers along the back wall. Fitting in these woofers required some custom work we brought in our fibreglass expert who started designing the box. We measured it all up and he began constructing the enclosure. Making sure the enclosure would allow the seats to revert back into their upright position required a lot of back and forth measuring and checking constantly installing and removing the rear seat. Once the enclosure was built no detail was skipped on the team wrapped it with carpet to match the rest of the interior giving it the feel that it was designed to be there.

Once the biggest part of this job was completed the team used the focal FPX 1.1000 Mono-block to supply the power required to get these woofers going.  Last but definitely not least we take pride in making sure it was going to provide the system with the bass output he was looking for. Spending the next few  hours tweaking and tuning the system the end result was spot on giving him a full on experience completing  exactly what he came in in for.

Too control the system we upgraded the head unit to an Alpine INE-W957 multimedia system. We take pride in going above and beyond for a customers and this was definitely another build worth doing.
