Default Land Rover Audio Install

Hi

Got the Audio install done on a friend's Land Rover, thought it may be nice to share the pictures with fellow members, as the Rainbow range is still not very common - YET First things first - I AM NO EXPERT ON AUDIO SETUPS, so kindly excuse any misinformation.

The setup was done by the favourite duo of "saddi dilli" Gunbir & JB..So for any technicalities - you know whomm to ask !!!

The setup is fairly basic, the front has a pair of 6.5" Rainbow components in stock location, with the tweeters on the dash near the A pillar.

The rear doors house 6.5" Rainbow coaxials.

There is a JBL enclosed Sub, there is a 4 channel blaupunkt amp powering the front components & the subwoofer. The rear door speakers are running off the Kenwood HU.

Hope that gives you some idea of the setup. The install was on a budget, as this is a secondary SUV for my friend, and will be used only occasionally.

The sound of the setup is neat. The fronts sound great, but would have surely sounded better with a better amp, but still are good enough. Clarity of the Rainbows is very crisp.

Posting some pics,more to follow.


Cheers

The speaker location is good. No damping etc? What else went in?

EdiT : just read that rears were 6.5inch co-ax and a 4 channel amp.

I found it a bit surprising that for high end speaker(especially in this price bracket), there is no crossover for the mid bass at all, even their cheaper bull cousins have them.... How do they sound btw

I think these must be the entry level rainbow components.I believe there are 3 varieties.

As I said earlier I am technically challenged Gunbir would have to answer your technical querries.

As far as the sound is concerned, the components sound very good, no two ways about it.

@noidaboy

You are absolutely spot on - these are the entry level speakers





Cheers

Nice simple install. What did you total budget come to?

Since Gunbir represents Bull Audio and Rainbow, did you listen to both before deciding on Rainbow?

Given the big boot what keeps the sub from moving if you take a turn or speedbump too fast?

Green, sometimes speaker designers and manufacturers take such calls. I know of high end component (30-40k) sets where there is a jumper to disable the LPF on the midbass, thereby using its natural roll off, which results in a deeper and more coherent sound stage. I have used such sets and they can sound great.

The SLX come in a Deluxe package too, with a crossover (like in the CSX and SAX). Having heard both, I can appreciate their effort to save costs and transfer the significant savings (Rs 2700) to the end user.

I would think that since this LPF operates about 2-4K the midrange would be what would be boosted.

True. And that helps since most of the time the drivers are in doors or covered by weirdly designed stock grilles.

Thanks. Glad you liked the install
Cost of the components = 9.5k
Cost of Coax = 7.4k
Kenwood HU with USB & Aux in on front panel = (hold tight) 5.5k
The Amp & Sub came from his previous Prado - so no idea on the cost

Total VFM stuff. Yes I did listen to both the BULL & RAINBOWS.

The subwoofer is held by a velcro strip to the rear seat, my friend fixes that in his factory - so no movements & no surprises





Cheers
