Audio System Upgrade

This Holden VF came to the team at Life Style Store wanting an audio upgrade of high-quality componentry and finish for a crystal clear audio experience that doesn’t impact on the practicality of having a wagon. Chasing the goal of quality sound the automatic go to is Focal.

Straight away we dove into a set of the Focal Kit 7 from the Utopia level components for the front stage of the car. To fit these to the vehicle some custom work was involved so we remade the A-Pillar trims to house both the mid-range and the tweeter, after the pods were built they were Re-trimmed in black for a more stealth not in your face feel. The rear coaxial set was changed out for the Focal EC165K set to compliment the front stage and providing clear audio for rear seat passengers as well.

In the back we made a custom MDF and fiberglass subwoofer box which is home to a single Focal 12″ flax cone woofer. To power the system there are 2x Focal amplifiers one located under the seat and another alongside the Helix Processor on a custom made and trimmed bracket  on the back of the rear seats. On top of the products used the doors and boot space were coated in Focal Bam sound deadening material to keep the audio in and the road noise out. With the combination of quality components used and solid installation techniques after this vehicle was tuned via the Helix DSP the customer was more than happy with clarity of the system and the build design and final fit out.

Products used:

  • Helix DSP P-SIX
  • Focal Kit 7 3-Way Components
  • Focal EC165K Coaxial
  • Focal FPX4.400SQ 4 Channel Amplifier
  • Focal FPS1500 Mono Block Amplifier
  • Focal P30F 12″ Flax Subwoofer
  • Focal BAMXXXL Sound Deadening
  • Focal Wiring Throughout
