Jaguar E-Type Roadster as the ultimate sound machine
This beautiful #Jaguar E-Type Roadster is already one of our favorite projects for 2022, even though implementing all the customer wishes was quite a challenge.
This is mainly because the Jag's extremely compact cabin offers hardly any space for 🔊speakers🔊, amplifiers or even a subwoofer. In addition, the sports car offers little 🎶acoustic insulation for undisturbed music enjoyment even with the top down.
That's why the choice of components was significantly reduced and tricky, as only very compact speakers with low height came into question. In the end, we decided on a 5-channel system with 400 watts of music power and smartphone connectivity. The original Becker radio remains for optical reasons on special customer request although in the car, the complete control takes place exclusively via the smartphone. We discreetly integrated volume control and hands-free activation in the ashtray drawer (see photo).
The system consists of 2 very compact, yet powerful sounding 19 mm silk tweeters, which were installed barely noticeable at the outermost edge of the narrow dashboard. The two 165 mm bass-midrange driver we installed in the original recordings of the center console - not an easy task either, since only speakers with a small depth came into question.
For the subwoofer we designed and manufactured a custom-built housing behind the seats. It contains the subwoofer as well as the 5-channel DSP amplifier with individual sound tuning and, thanks to the carpet trim, blends in perfectly with the interior. __
The crowning glory of the installation was the fine-tuning of the sound according to individual customer specifications, taking into account the engine noise of the powerful six-cylinder engine. By the way: We always work with the favorite songs of the customers, because the tastes regarding sound are very different.

P.S. Our systems are suitable for almost all classic cars.
