Jaguar XJS

Complete Sound System

Jaguars have always been known for their luxurious interiors and elegant simplicity and that is exactly what this customer wanted to preserve but still get an audio upgrade over the factory under performing setup.

The team got to work on test fitting some products to ensure all parts would remain behind factory trim.
The front speakers chosen were a set of Hertz High Energy 3-way components, The mounting locations for these speakers were almost a perfect match for the factory removed components making the job of integrating into the spaces provided easy whilst also installing a great sounding speaker.

The rear doors were a similar situation so the Hertz High Energy 2-way components were installed into the rear doors.

Amplifier choice came down to power and form factor as we had little room to work with. The end choice was 2x Rockford Fosgate T-series amplifiers with one being mounted under each front seat.
Each amplifier slotted nicely into a small groove in the factory floor and carpet and with their black colour they hide away beautifully from sight.

Sub woofer choice was the next task on the table needing to be slim but still offer a decent bass input to the install.
In the end the sub woofer of choice was a Rockford Fosgate Slimline 10″ mounted in a custom fibreglass sub box that took the shape of the inside of the spare wheel. With a nice trim plate over the top to support the box across the diameter of the spare wheel the sub would hide away under the factory floor trim but is completely removable in 10 seconds if the spare wheel is needed.

With the specific set of guidelines to follow i think we knocked this one out of the park with all components hiding away so nothing is visible from the surface.
