JC Audio worked with a client to produce a beautifully installed, very powerful system, while retaining all vehicle features and functionality, and minimizing the effect on available space. The results created a rolling showcase of high-output amplifiers and rich-sounding speakers that dazzles you when cranked!
Trucks are notoriously loud, because let’s face it – they are meant for work, not necessarily luxury. As part of the audio package, JC Audio used special material to dramatically reduce road noise and vibration, and special isolation rings around the high output drivers to direct the music inside the vehicle cabin where it belongs, and other noise out.
While the factory locations for speakers weren’t too bad, the crew knew this system needed much more. Handcrafted custom sail panels house the tweeters from the Hertz® HSK series three-way components up front, and in-house machined custom plates were used to secure the mid-bass drivers in the front doors, and Hertz® ECX series coaxial drivers in the rear doors.
A custom-built, vented subwoofer enclosure was placed behind the rear seats, placing the 8” JL Audio® 8W7 on the driver’s side of the vehicle, which is powered by an efficient JL Audio XD600/1 amplifier. This amplifier, along with two other JL Audio amplifiers running the component and coaxial speakers, are all mounted under a protective panel underneath the rear seat bench, keeping their location hidden.
An Audison BitOne™ DSP unit was mounted alongside these amplifiers, and provides a clean and clear audio signal from the stock Tacoma radio, which was kept to maintain vehicle functionality and a convenient user-interface. The controller interface for this unit was molded right into the center console, near the gear shift, for quick and easy access while cruising. This type of set-up allows JC Audio to integrate a variety of high-end audio systems to nearly any type of OEM radio to keep a certain look and feel in the vehicle, and keep any expensive factory options that may be affected by removing it.
The end result is a ride that sounds as good on the inside as it looks on the outside! Every one of the tasteful upgrades has been done in such a way that you don’t really notice them until you look for them… Or until you crank the volume knob!
