Alex is a long time customer and recently bought a new Skoda Octavia VRS so we transferred his Dynaudio components and In Phase amplifiers/box from his old BMW 3er compact to the Octavia.
The Dynaudio components are run actively (without passive crossovers) to take benefit of the full processing power of his Pioneer DEH-P88RSII stereo, which offers auto EQ and Time Alignment for the ultimate in sound quality.
He’s running two IPX1200 amplifiers, one for mids and the other for his tweeters so the stereo can actively manage the crossover frequency/slope, phase and Time alignment for each driver individually-making it possible to alter the firing of each speaker so the sound from each driver arrives at the listener’s ears at the same time. The stereo’s 16 band (L/R independant) EQ allows for very fine adjustment to truely tailor the sound and can do this automatically or be adjusted to taste.
Alex originally started out with 1x In Phase PR210 enclosure, but as he is a bit of a “bass head” he decided he wanted more so up-graded from the IPX2400 amp he had been using for bass duties to the IPA2001D-200wrms of grunt and added another PR210!
The install went smoothly, but unfortunately I was busy and unable to document it all on camera, retaining the factory look by fitting the drivers in the stock locations. The midbass are in a very poor location-just by your behind (I’ve never found one with ears!) but fortunately the DEH-P88RSII’s processor manage to make the best of the drivers in even this awful location.
Here’s a pic of the boot install, we created a false floor to house the amplifiers under and mounted the subs ontop of this:
2x PR210, false floor, IPC2.4N
This system really surpassed our expectations, due to the poor location of the midbass drivers I really thought Alex would have to go back to a passive installation and add the Dynaudio MD142 and crossovers, but this install has put a huge smile on Alex’s face and I’m sure it will continue to do so for years to come!

BMW’s baby gets a pretty poor audio system from the factory, as do most of the range, so we’ve found the best solution for the following cars:
BMW 3 Series (E90,E91,E92) 2005>
BMW 1 Series Coupe (E82) 2007>
BMW 1 Series (E87,E88) 2004>
Other kits are available for other cars, please follow this link:
The system is designed and manufactured by a German company called Jehnert (J is pronounced as a Y). Unlike other upgrades for these cars this has been specifically designed for the vehicles, taking into account the vehicle’s acoustics and done without compromise.
Jehnert have a long history of making hi-end audio upgrades for German cars (though they do now cater for some Peugeots, Mazdas and Vauxhalls) and like all things German are built to the highest specification and with huge attention to detail and quality. The goal has always been supreme audio quality but maintaining the factory look of the vehicle-in this case the only way you could tell it was any different to factory is to listen to it-a few seconds will do!
These impressive kits can be bi-amped so you can run an amp for the midrange and tweeter with a seperate one for the woofers or you can wire them as a single load for a large 2channel-the RMS rating on these kits is 130wrms per side-I’d personally advise an amp of at least 2x 150wrms to give you plenty of headroom and a low noise floor. This customer went for the IPA1601, with 2x 300wrms on tap for huge dynamism and the ability to keep the gains right down.
Jehnert Tweeter fitted in factory location
Jehnert Midrange fitted in factory location on supplied perspex baffle

DB Audio Trex6.2c Component speakers installed into a Land Rover Freelander
A very flush and subtle installation at the Car Audio Centre Tooting installing the DB Audio Trex6.2C pro speaker kit into a Land Rover Freelander. Not only do the speakers sound great but the subtle installation keeps the factory fitted looks, but without the dull and lifeless sound from factory.
