For over a decade, P&P Car Sound has designed some of the coolest and best sounding car audio systems in South Africa. Located in Boksburg, this elite Rockford Fosgate dealer has applied their talent to some very unique and very fast cars. So when a long-time fanatic drifted in the parking lot with his Nissan Skyline GTR34, the installers knew what he wanted - another Rockford Fosgate system - but this time it wasn’t just performance he was looking for. The system needed to follow some guidelines as not to affect the vehicle’s responsive handling.
The stock Skyline, already legendary in the motoring world, underwent a total transformation. After outlining requirements to Shawn of P&P, it was decided that the installation should complement the character of the vehicle. As with the case when installing custom audio systems in ANY high performance super car, the two main restrictions are space and weight. The installation included an electrical and battery system upgrade, with the entire system using Rockford Fosgate cables, stabilized with an RFC10HB 10 Farad Digital Hybrid Capacitor.
The stock source unit was swapped out for a DVD player fitted into a custom dash trim. A single P3D412 12” PUNCH P3 subwoofer is mounted in the trunk and provides strong, tight bass. The subwoofer was inverted in a ported enclosure highlighting the beautiful motor assembly. A set of POWER T152-S splits (component systems) are located in custom molded door pods trimmed in grey Alcantara® to provide a crisp clean front stage. The subwoofer and splits are powered by a POWER T600-4 amplifier with a Rockford Fosgate 360.2 Interactive Signal Processor taking care of all crossover and equalization settings. The installation is trimmed in a combination of black carbon foil, Alcantara®, smoked glass and blue LED accent lighting. Additionally, a custom built center console and roof mounted cluster house an engine management control unit and digital gauges.
Practically no part on the Skyline is stock, and the attention to detail and customization is truly outstanding. P&P Car Sound definitely exceeded the required targets and the Rockford Fosgate system performs - well - like a rocket.
