A client from Wailea came to Certified Sounds with his 2006 Porsche Boxster S, looking for an audio upgrade. He had previously had a Pioneer NEX head unit installed, along with a backup camera. When he decided to upgrade the audio section, he knew he wanted to use Focal speakers. He went to another retailer that had some Focal speakers on display but kept trying to sell him something different. He contacted Focal directly, and they referred the client to us. We sat down with him and discussed his goals for the audio system, and then we went out to the vehicle and looked it over together. Based on the client’s feedback, we worked up what we felt was the best solution for him. He liked our proposal, and made an appointment.
Pioneer Radio Gets Apple Car Play Update For Enhanced Safety
The Pioneer Nex unit was going to work fine, so all we did to it was install the Apple Car Play update so the client’s iPhone could be seamlessly integrated with it.
Great Sounding Focal Speakers Anchor The Sound Up Front
For front speakers, we chose the Focal 165KRX2 speaker system. We installed the 6.5” woofers in custom mounts in the doors, and the tweeters in the dash behind the factory grills. We treated the doors with sound damping to help eliminate any rattling or buzzing from the improved speakers.
Dual 10 Inch JL Audio Subwoofers Provide Plenty Of Bass And Take Up Minimal Space
We also made custom enclosures for two JL Audio 10TW3 subwoofers, with one enclosure going behind each seat and factory-matching carpet to make the enclosures look like factory Porsche options. We designed the enclosures to be removable for vehicle servicing, all the while keeping plenty of legroom for the client. We also installed sound-damping material on the rear wall of the Porsche to eliminate any potential noise from the subwoofers.
Clean Italian Made Power From Mosconi AS Amplifier
When it came to power, we chose a Mosconi AS200.4, an Italian powerhouse providing more than 1,000 watts of clean power to the speakers. We made a custom metal amp rack to suspend the amplifier in the front trunk, giving it a floating look. As you can see from the pictures, we managed to hide all of the wiring for a clean, factory appearance.
Expert Tuning Maximizes The Sound In This Porsche Boxster S
We spent significant amount of time on tuning the amplifier, Focal crossovers and settings on the Pioneer unit. Certified Sounds believes that is the only way to do an install properly. If you’re going to spend your hard-earned money on great equipment, you want to know your technician is going to get every last ounce of sound quality of the system for you.
When the customer came to pick up his vehicle, he was thrilled with the installation and the sound quality. In fact, he loved it so much that he has already started talking to us about future upgrades to his Boxster S!
