Range Rover Evoque AV Headrest Screen Installation At The ICE House

Posted in: Blog, Car Audio, Car Audio, Projects by Mark on November 28, 2012 | No Comments

Range Rover Evoque AV Headrest Screen Installation At The ICE House

The Range Rover Evoque is a new model to the popular Land Rover brand. It is a more compact model that still has the quality and style of it’s bigger counterparts. It is a very stylish vehicle, designed in consultation with Victoria Beckham, and will prove to be a popular choice.

We received a visit to our shop in King Street, Fenton from our local Land Rover dealer that had a customer that wanted to keep their children entertained. We discussed various options and decided that the new Rosen AV7900 replacement headrest system would be the best solution. This system replaced the factory front headrests with a matching colour, textured leather and stitching, with 2 colour 7” LCD screens with built in DVD players. This allows children of various ages to watch separate movies and with tilting screens it allows even the smallest child to view the screen. In addition to the built in DVD players, both headrest screens have 50 built in games to play, controlled via 2 cordless game pads with all the audio coming through cordless headphones.

This system is available in 6 different options, which are:
• Twin DVD system
• Single DVD system
• Single DVD with IDOC+ system
• Dual IDOC+ system
• Single IDOC+ system
• Dual monitor system

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.

Posted in: Blog, Security by admin on November 6, 2009 | No Comments

                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 ”
