Transit Custom Stereo Audio Door Speaker Subwoofer Upgrade
Please Note: *This can be purchased online but must be fitted at our workshop in Harlow*
Fed up of the factory stereo system in the Transit Custom? So were we!!
This is another first for us, and the manufacturer... possible the country utilising these components. Our very own Transit Custom has now had a long overdue major re-vamp of the stereo system.
We did not want to go to the trouble or expense of changing the factory head unit, after all it has all the features required already built in. The weakest point is the factory speakers and DSP. We do after all spend more time in our vans than we do in our cars. So why shouldn’t we have some decent sounds?
The brief was simple, get the best sound possible on a budget so long journeys are bearable without any indication to the outside world what has been done.
Utilising award winning front door speakers, the Vibe CVEN 6.5” mid range and tweeters, complete with Match plug and play Amp / DSP and 8” under-seat Match subwoofer.
First off was the door speakers, complete with sound proofing on the cab doors. Next the tweeters were mounted in the factory position in the A pillars. Finally the ultra compact, all in one Match / DSP, was mounted under the passenger seat along with the subwoofer.
The amp / DSP is fully programmable via laptop for true time alignment and also frequency response. The DSP has been configured by, Midbass Distribution and what a difference it has made!
The settings have now been stored for future installs, meaning all we have to do is load the settings on the DSP and it’s ready to go.
This is a true plug and play solution for the 2014-2018 Transit Custom. Easily installed and configured with a vehicle “tuned” bespoke sound file. The 2018> model will be available soon as it is pretty much the same positioning in the vehicle of the speakers / tweets and we can always adjust the settings if need be.
Vocals are crystal clear, and lifted higher into the cab. The bass is punchy and drops very low given the small size of the sub. With the position of the sub under the seat, this gives excellent results. If it gets too much, it is easily turned down on the (optional) wired remote. We can even switch between factory settings and time aligned / DSP settings at the press of a switch.
This is a seriously good setup for any vehicle, let alone a commercial one. It is also completely “stealth” meaning no unwanted attention is drawn from passers by.
We can supply, fit and setup this install in a day at our premises, such is the true plug and play nature of the install.
