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.

A few niggles at first that were not the fault of Source Sounds. But even though it wasn’t their fault, they spent hours trying to resolve the issues created by my vehicle being electric. I could not recommend the service level of this company any higher, their product knowledge is second to none, have all the gear right there in the shop, and will fit you in as soon as … where else do you find that these days!!

We traveled from Rotherham to get these guys to fit some reversing sensors to my wife’s car, I’d been before and they were very professional for both alarms and a radio on my van and this time as before they were brilliant. The work was completed ahead of time and one of the guys came out and spent 10 minutes explaining EXACTLY how parking sensors worked which was great as I hadn’t a clue. We are very pleased with both the professionalism of the people and the work in which they do. Perfect!!! Many, many thanks for such a great company.

I bought a car radio from somewhere else with the intention of replacing the factory installed one. I contacted Halfords and they bluntly told me that they did not fit a radio that was not supplied by them. I then stumbled upon Source Sounds on internet and decided to give them a try.
What set wind to my sails was their warm customer relations and their confidence that it was “do-able!”. Their charges are reasonable as well.
They changed the fascia and in the process provided extra space for auxiliary equipment (space that had been covered by only two knobs on the previous radio). They kept me updated on the progress. I now have a trim dashboard , and am over the moon! Thanks to Paul and his team. Your customer care is second to none.
