The TVR Tuscan is one of the last iconic British Sports cars, with its unique styling and stunning interiors the TVR Tuscan is not a car for the shy. Our brief was to create an audio system that remained both loud and clear with the roof off. The standard audio system comprises a pair of 10cm coax speakers behind the seats and a CD tuner located in a dash mounted pod. With the roof off all the sound was lost due to the extremely loud straight through exhausts. We looked at the front doors and decided to modify the standard door pocket to accept a 6.5” Midbass driver. The speaker baffle was created with a MDF speaker baffle which was fibreglassed to the original pocket. These were then sent to D&C Trim in Blackpool who are the original trimmers from the TVR Factory in matching leather.
We chose Rockford Fosgate POWER series for all the audio, set of RF T162s 6.5” components front the system with a RF P3D4 10” slim subwoofer mounted into a custom fiberglass box, trimmed in leather and alcantara. This does not take up any room in the boot and blends seamlessly into the interior. Two RF T400.2 2 channel Power series amplifiers were fitted one to run the subwoofer and the other to power the front components. These were mounted under a false floor in the boot as the space is used to stow the rear window and roof panel when it is removed from the car. The source unit is an Alpine CDA 9886 CD tuner with IPod and USB facilities.
