Speaker Upgrade in a Landrover Defender

April 5th, 2013

Speaker upgrade in a Landrover DefenderA speaker upgrade in a Landrover Defender is a must for anyone living in Sheffield.  For any people that own a Defender, you will all know how poor the vehicle sounds. They aren’t necessarily built for audio quality.  They generally have a set of 4″ speakers in the bottom of the dashboard facing the floor and the odd ones then have a tweeter on top of the dashboard firing at the windscreen.  These systems both lack quality, volume, clarity and just about anything good in a speaker system. Most Landrover Defenders in Sheffield don’t even have any rear speakers.  Replacing the speakers is a fairly simple task. Using a more substantial speaker you can gain a far superior sound quality to the factory speakers.

Speaker upgrade in a Landrover DefenderIf you want a big improvement to your Landrover Defender, then we recommend a set of 3 way component speakers.  Also, in the rear a set of 6.50″ coaxial speakers to the roof area.  Doing this upgrade will give you audio for the rear of the vehicle as well as a big jump in quality for the front of the vehicle.  A front set of 3 way components consist of a dedicated 6.50″ midbass driver, a 4″ midrange driver and a tweeter.  All the speakers are fitted neatly to the vehicle, with no detriment to the interior. The rear 6.50″ coaxial speakers are secured to the roof area to give a rear surround sound.

What’s Your Budget?

A speaker upgrade in a Landrover Defender can cover most budgets, depending on the quality of sound you are after.  If rear speakers don’t interest you, then you could spend more money on the front speaker upgrade.  This would benefit the sound in the front of the vehicle, which is the most important seat in the vehicle. This is because it’s the driver is the one spending the money on the improvements.

In addition to speakers, another improvement to the sound quality of the vehicle would be to use some soundproofing material. This will quieten down the vehicle and help to reduce road noise inside the cabin area.

One more improvement would be to add an amplifier to the speakers to give them extra power. This in turn would give much better quality, clarity of sound and more volume.

Testimonials

When I arrived back home after my short trip from Source to Donny today, I thought a short thank you email was in order. When I first sat behind the wheel and heard what a difference your adjustments had made, I was very pleased. I put Pink Floyds’ “Dark Side Of The Moon” in and set off for home. When I pulled onto my drive, I couldn’t get out of the car for 10 minutes because the CD hadn’t finished. It was stunning ! All the meticulous work you put into my install came together today and exceeded all my expectations. The sound stage is now immense, fills the front of the car and is fully balanced to my seating position. A great many thanks to you and all the team at Source Sounds, I wish you every success in the future.

I arrived to find two technicians on their lunch break busily helping a lost parcel delivery guy waylaid with items. This bode well for assessing the character of Source Sounds. A replacement head unit and the re wiring of a sub made me self concious that I was not their biggest customer. I could not have been more wrong. They squeezed my job in that very day and phoned me as soon as all was complete. I never had to repeat anything twice. Lee’s perseverance and tenacity was infectious. Several minor issues that I had tolerated previously are now history. I thoroughly recommend this company.

I recently visited Source Sounds to have a new security system fitted to my Land Rover Defender. They are 170 miles from where I live. The whole experience from the time I first made contact with them was superb, trouble free and a pleasure. Whilst there I also invested in a dash cam which they hard wired and fitted for me. Despite all of the work carried out, when I collected the vehicle there was no sign that anyone had interfered with vehicle, inside and out. Paul spent an hour plus with me on collection to explain the use of the items fitted. I was also assisted with hotel transport and securing my vehicle overnight. No wonder people travel miles to use their service. I won’t hesitate to use again.
