Bass In Motion. We recently found a "Lenz Stock" GTI kitted with big wheels, a banging Rockford Fosgate system and worked motor. A feature would only be fitting.
Next on the list of things to do for Silvan - the owner - was sort out the crappy stock audio system and yank it - I mean - take out everything and replace it with better quality components. For this, the car was delivered to Exclusive Customs who have built a number of really good looking systems. With that said, take note that this isn't the first car from their shop to grace this publication and it certainly won't be the last.
Getting back to Silven's G6, after giving Rashid an outline of what he wanted, he left the car in their care and they were given free reign on the design, provided it looked awesome and more importantly, it was unique.
Once all the stock gear was removed, Rashid designed something in his mind and immediately got cracking on turning it into a reality. With the help of Zoltan from Audiomotive Distributors, they designed a vented enclosure to house three 12-in T0 Rockford Fosgate woofers. The enclosure frame was built using 16mm wood for the base, rear and side panels while the face and roof was moulded using lots of fiberglass matting and resin after which it was finished off using body filler and then spray painted the same colour as the car.
No, this wasn't going to be another boring install, Rashid wanted to add some character and contrast to it so he designed and built the two towers that extend all the way form the floor to the amplifier racks which were incorporated into the subwoofer enclosure. The amplifiers in question is a Rockford Fosgate T1500-1bdCP mono-block that produces almost 2000W RMS while the second amp is a Rockford Fosgate T400-4. Moving inside the cabin, the stock speakers in the rear were replaced with a set of coaxial speakers while a pair of splits went into the front doors. The OEM deck was replaced by a cool Alpine double DIN head unit. Ensuring that the beasty amplifiers always had plenty of current was a Kinetik HC2000 battery that replaced the stock version.
