I saw a video of an extreme sound system installed in a 720 somewhere in the Middle East, but I'm having difficulty finding the video. They installed a big subwoofer box in the back area. Install looked good...

Subwoofer
To my amazement their is space n front of passenger footwell so installing JLAudio 8w3v34 subwoofer their only shortens footwell couple of inches. It was important to me to maintain interiors original appearance. Set of 6 focal flax speakers PS165F3 were installed n doors. Subfloor w/JLAudio amplifier XD7005V2 reduced depth of front trunk couple of inches. Cost just over $6000 & we r sounding good

I assume that was upgrading the base stereo ?


Here the video for Brian's Custom Audio install, relevant part starts at 6:30


Here is another install from Al & Ed's Auto Sound. I've actually thought about getting this Mansory carbon fiber wing although concerned about how it would affect aero balance without putting some super aggressive splitter on the front (that would make the car far less drivable on the street).




Looks like both of these cars were equipped with the base stereo, which I'm sure leaves much to be desired. I have the B&W system which is very decent, particularly for a supercar. It's not as good as the Burmester High End 3D system in my S63 Coupe, but was also quite a bit cheaper and no doubt weighs much less.

Presumably I will get some construction pics

If you size pics to 725 pix wide you can just drag them onto post/reply page and they will show up full size - very easy

Thanks for the info. I don’t want to do anything too crazy. Maybe just replace stock speakers and add a small sub. I prefer to have a custom box on the rear deck versus the footwell.

How about a powered sub on the rear deck with an Audiocontol LC2i?

Have it upholstered in leather to match your interior.
