Has anyone install a custom subwoofer in the 720s? If so can you post pics of your setup?
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.

Car toys portland Oregon did install
Per my request they did take pictures & they will get them to me. Havnt posted pics before so we shall c. Of course after the install not much to c using original speaker grills for tweeters & n doors. The original front wall of right foot well is all u c of subwoofer & subfloor over amplifier means nothing to b seen their either. Of course that was the plan to keep esthetics all original. 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.

Good idea, it seems compact enough it may even fit behind the passenger seat out of the way.

So I had a complete system installed in my 720S with two objectives: 1) Amazing sound quality, highs and lows. 2) No changes to the look of the stock interior.

We installed 3 Focal amps, Focal Utopia mids & tweets, JL Audio 12", and an Escort Max Ci system while we were at it. Everything turned out great, sound quality exceeded expectations and the car is far more fun on date nights. 😀
