Memphis Audio just seemed to fit the bill.
He had an existing Panasonic deck with some rear wake board tower cannons and some
MTX speakers up front.
I pulled everything out and started fresh.
Front stage got some MemphisAudio Power Reference 5.25” Components speakers. The Mid Bass speakers went in a custom made pod behind the shifter and the tweeters when where the old MTX speakers had been cut out.
Rear stage was a bit more involved. Customer wanted some subs added as well as rear fill speakers that weren’t in the way when he’s driving/crawling. I custom built a rear box to house the two 10” Memphis Power Reference subwoofers, as well as the 6.5” Memphis Power Reference Component speakers. This was all molded for a seamless look, and then received a few layers of rhino lining to protect the box, make it water proof and make it overall solid. This was then bolted through the rear side walls so that it doesn’t move when this jeep is sideways.
To power all of this is Memphis Audio’s 5 channel Marine Audio amplifier. It’s putting out around 80 watts x 4 channels for the components speakers, as well as 350 watts for the subwoofers….just what the jeep needed.
A Pioneer 5300UB deck was placed in the existing cutout to provide UBS, iPod and
Auxiliary inputs…as well as MUCH improved and needed controls over how the music sounds.
All in all, this was a fun project. It’s different to build something strong enough and install everything KNOWING that this vehicle will be flexing in different directions than 99% of vehicles out there.
Till next time
