Hello, My audio project aimed at good audio quality with as less as possible weight adding. Replacing of the head unit is a required step. I’ve chosen Pioneer AVIC -6200 but any renowned branding system will do the job. Separate filters (HP and LP) for front and back, time alignment at least are required. 2 din frame is easy to find at Ebay or Amazon. I did research for speakers that work well without an amplifier. One of the best quality to price ratio that do the job appeared to be Morel's Maximus . Specially made for such purpose. https ://www .morelhifi .com/product/maximus -602-2-way/ for front line. Also added a rear view camera. I've tried different setups for back line, but it appeared that back does not make any difference at all. So left the original, just cut them by the settings from the head unit in order to get the best out of them (that’s why separate setting for front and rear is needed). Isolation. Isolation is very important but good one adds a lot of weight too. I've isolated only the speakers. Also observed the points at witch my doors resonated and putted Silent Coat at very small amounts only at that spot. Last but very import is the subwoofer . Custom box, amp and sub makes the best sound. However, adds weight too. So only solution is active sub, which can be easily removed for track days. Tried a lot of options. Best sounding active sub for me is Infinity Bass link.(https ://www .harmanaudio .com/infinity/BASSLINK _.html ) . It is an old sub, but still available at some spots (There is 3rd version but I have no experience with it). What was pretty cool is the size. Fits as it is produced for GT86. No joking. See the pictures 😊 Stop light above the sub resonates and produces an unpleasant noise at high load. The solution I figured (see the pictures) is not very elegant, but it does the job. This setup performs better than factory JBL. I wont mention the advantages of aftermarket head unit. Very happy with the results. Hope this helps 😊
Hi all, I'm looking for some guidance regarding an audio upgrade for my new shape BRZ. I'm currently looking into a Kenwood head unit from the UK and a 2 din OEM trim and plug and play harness from Australia made by a company called carboncarsystems which will allow me to keep my steering controls and give an OEM look but want to see what's around speaker wise to improve the sound quality. If anyone knows of something in the UK that will allow me to keep the steering controls please let me know, carboncarsystems are being a bit funny about shipping to the UK. I've seen there's a plug and play kit made by Focal https://www.bassjunkies.com/is165toy.html which looks to be good but wondered if anyone has fitted it and can give me their opinion if it's a good option to go for? While the tweeters would be out I've seen there's space for a mid tone speaker in there which comes with a JDL kit? Is it worth finding a mid tone to go in with the tweeter? I'm also interested in changing my rear speakers, I know their 4" and there are lots of options on the market but wondered what people can recommend that are yet again plug and play. I've also seen people buying an amp to go behind the head unit, whats this all about? I'm not keen on putting any speakers in the boot or covering the car in sound proofing materials, I'm simply after a good quality system which is noticeably better than the stock system. Budget wise I would spend £500 max but would like to spend less however I understand you obviously get what you pay for!! Please any advise or reviews welcome, sorry to create another audio related thread but the answer I wanted wasn't on the existing ones.
