A longtime friend of Pinnacle Autosound decided he needed to upgrade the car stereo system in his Ford Edge. After a brief discussion on the phone, the client stopped by so we could get a better look at his vehicle. Looking at the vehicle, and talking with the client, we came up with a plan for satisfying his audio desires.
Morel Speakers and Rockford Amplifier
The first step in the stereo upgrade for the Ford Edge was to replace the factory speakers. The speakers that came in this Edge were lifeless and sounded even worse when cranked up. Our discussion with the client led us to the direction of Morel speakers. The Morel speakers are a natural choice for those that musically oriented, like this client. We have found that the Morel speakers are very natural sounding and require very little equalization to provide balanced sound. We used Morel Tempo Ultra components in the front and Morel Tempo Ultra coaxial speakers in the rear doors. To mount the tweeters in the factory location, we used our laser to cut some custom ABS plastic mouting adapters. Powering the speakers is a four channel Rockford Fosgate R2 amplifiers. This amplifier packs plenty of power in a small footprint.
Rockford Fosgate Bass
The client wanted a fair amount of bass, but also wanted the option to retain all his hatch space. Given these parameters, we chose the Rockford Fosgate Punch 12″ powered subwoofer enclosure. This awesome setup contains a 12″ subwoofer with a 300 watt amplifier, in a sealed enclosure. Both the power and signal wires into the enclosure are connected with quick release plugs. These make it easy for the client to remove the enclosure, should he ever need every bit of space in his hatch. The enclosure comes with a remote level control. We once again used our laser to make a custom trim plate for the knob.
Great Sounding Car Stereo Upgrade
With all the gear installed, it was time for us to setup the system. We adjusted the levels on the system interface and then the amplifier and powered subwoofer. The result was a great sounding system that exhibited wonderfully balanced tonality and awesome detail. The client loved the upgrade and couldn’t wait to listen to his favorite music in it.
