Pug 206 Rockford Fosgate Car Audio Install

Posted in: Blog, Security by admin on November 22, 2009

Antony, s Peugeot 206 has under gone a total transformation in the last 12 months; a WRC wide arch kit has been fitted with WRC style roof vent all fitted by Ecosse, a Renault Clio interior and TVR Tuscan spider wheels fitted onto custom hubs. The car was resprayed in standard blue paint. When Antony brought the car to us at The Ice House, King Street , Stoke on Trent the audio system had a lot to be desired. Poor cabling and installation was letting this car down. A decision was made to remove everything and start from fresh. Rockford Fosgate equipment was chosen throughout for its good looks and high performance. The system is headed up by an Alpine CDE-104BT head unit. This was chosen for its built in blue tooth, I-pod control and superior sound quality. Front and rear speakers are Rockford Fosgate P162s components up front and Rockford Fosgate Prime R1693 3 way 6×9” speakers into the rear parcel shelf. Powering these is a Rockford Prime R300.4 4 channel amplifier delivering watts to each speakers. Sub bass is take car of with 2 12” P1S412 subwoofers powered by a Rockford Fosgate Prime R500.1 mono amplifier delivering 500 watts. The amplifiers were flush mounted into the floor of the boot Autoleads and Audison connection provided the cabling and Skinz sound deadening was used in vital areas.

                JL Audio has long since been synonymous with quality audio products.
     The Ice House, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire had a sneak peek at the new JL Audio J2 range of amplifiers. The range consists of 5 new entry level amplifiers. Three mono blocks (250, 500 and 1000 watts)and a two (2×180) and four channel (4×80 watts) complete the line up. All amplifiers feature built in active  x-over’s, pre-amp outputs, all mono amplifiers feature remote sub level controls, Hi-mass heat sinks and are finished in a smoked brushed aluminum heat sink.
                 “ when you inspect a JL Audio J2 amplifier, you will see that nothing is spent on gimmicks, blue lights or chrome. Instead, we apply our no-nonsense, pure performance philosophy to specify oversized output transistors and rugged MOSFET power supplies that ensure ample current and thermal capacity. These beefy parts operate well under their limits to deliver stable performance and vastly better reliability than the wimpy devices commonly found in many competing products. It all adds up to solid bass definition and cleaner, louder high frequency output that gets the most out of your speaker system ”
    Over the next few months The Ice House will be taking delivery of the JL Audio amplifiers and will be offering special deals on the JL Audio j2 range.
