Audioconcepts Recommends

This 80's classic VW Corrado drove in for some very much 21st Century Audio and Security upgrades. The audio would give a new lease of life to the ownership of this beauty. The security upgrade would provide this classic with the much needed security in this day and age of super thiefs.  In addition to the audio and security the Audioconcepts team also replaced the headlining and valeted the upholstery. Also our qualified team repaired the faulty sunroof.

This is what the Audioconcepts team installed:

Focal K Power Front Speakers

The ES 130 K kit offers great linearity, deep bass and an impressive SPL of 90.8 dB (2.83 V/1 m) in an extremely compact design.

This kit is composed of:

Two 5" (130mm) woofers featuring K2 Power Kevlar® cones endowed with the ideal qualities: lightness, rigidity and excellent damping. These speaker drivers deliver an extremely dynamic sound with perfect definition. The cones are fixed to the frame using TMD suspension, whose exclusive design removes unwanted resonances and reduces the effects of distortion.

Two 025/32" (20mm) aramid-fibre TKM inverted dome tweeters. Their exclusive 'M'- shaped profile is designed to control deformation of the dome, and to perfectly reproduce high frequencies up to 22kHz smoothly and with precision. Their compact crossovers are quick to install and easy to set up. Various accessories are supplied for assembling the tweeters, which can be installed in the factory locations, on tilting frames or flush-mounted.


Hertz Two Way Coaxial Rear Speakers

This 2-way coax speaker is designed to satisfy specific installation and listening needs. DCX 460.3 features a neodymium magnet, PEI dome tweeter, built-in crossover, TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) surround and a copper mobile voice coil wound on conex former. An extremely light, yet stiff structure ensures linear frequency response and a high sensitivity level.


Powerbass Subwoofer

Smaller subwoofer enclosures bring deep bass into confined spaces, bringing low-frequency vibrations closer to your body so you can feel the bass at lower sound levels. The PowerBass STA-10 powered sub fits under or behind the seat in many vehicles, giving you the bass power of a 10" woofer.

The STA-10's Class D amplifier drives the sub with up to 200 watts of RMS power. The Class D amp hardly gets warm when it's working, so it's perfect under your seat or in other tight spaces. A wired remote gain control lets you adjust the sub level from the drivers' seat. The amp's controls also include an adjustable low-pass filter, bass boost, and phase switch. The STA-10's switchable line- and speaker-level inputs are compatible with just about any car stereo.

BUILT-IN HIGH POWERED AMPLIFIER: Contains a high power Class D monaural amplifier complete
with chassis mounted adjustable Gain, Low Pass Filter and Bass Eq controls for sonic integration
into most existing factory or aftermarket car stereo systems and engineered perfectly to power the

SELECTABLE SENSITIVITY SETTING: With this button pressed in, the preamp sensitivity will accept
input voltages from 2V-1 OV. This will be used if High Level Inputs are connected to your amplified
enclosure. With this button left out, the preamp sensitivity will now accept 250mV-6V. This will be used if

Low Level / RCA Inputs are connected to your amplified enclosure.

DIE-CAST ALUMINUM ENCLOSURE DESIGN: This enclosure is constructed from aircraft grade
aluminum that has been acoustically tuned with the integrated custom tooled passive radiator for
optimum bass output.

REMOTE SUBWOOFER LEVEL CONTROL: This wired remote functions as a Bass Level control and can
provide 0-12dB of gain at 45Hz. The remote will not increase the output beyond the GAIN setting on the
amplifier. Supplied with cable to reach your dash even when the bass enclosure is mounted under the

ALUMINUM-COATED POLYPROPYLENE CONE: A thermoplastic polymer cone was selected to
help resist moisture and other elements while the rubber surround offers more excursion as well as
protection against deterioration than other materials.

KSV HIGH TEMPERATURE VOICE COIL: These specially designed resin coated high temperature
Kapton® voice coils measure 1 112 inches in diameter to ensure high power handling and precise
linear excursion while maximizing thermal heat dissipation.

AUTO TURN-ON CIRCUIT: When using the high level inputs, the amplifier will turn on automatically
when it senses a signal from your radio.


Skinz Sound Deadening

Good car audio begins with properly treated doors and panels. Flexing metal panels and expanses of plastic cause a myriad of issues with car sound from bass cancelling road noise to annoying shakes rattles and vibrations. A flexing metal panel can effective sap the energy away from your speakers by creating inter-cancellation at the rear of your speaker while other surfaces can produce unwanted nasty resonances which colour the sound. Our sound deadening and panel lining products go as far as possible in eradicating these products while our wave diffuser will absorb the sound issuing from the rear of your speakers to prevent that sound reflecting back into the speakers. The importance of sound treatment such as the Skinz range should never be underestimated.


Clifford Security

Clifford's entry-level Thatcham Category-1 system meets and exceeds the highest standards of the UK insurance industry, and installing one may qualify you for discounted vehicle insurance as a result. The Concept 650MkII's built-in tandem immobiliser circuit is self-arming soon after you park so that your vehicle always remains protected, and these main electronics also reside in an armoured-steel enclosure as an added security measure. Uniquely, this system is now offered with three separate sensor-package options so you can select the most suitable protection for your specific requirements; Choose from Ultrasonic interior movement sensing, Dual-Zone Proximity which includes external warn-away zone, or combined Glass Tamper and Tilt & Motion sensor packages – or perhaps even combine two or more options to be really secure!


>>> Central Locking output with On-board Door Lock Relays (where vehicle has central locking as standard)
>>> Thatcham Approved (Category 1)
>>> Dual-Circuit Imobiliser
>>> Includes two new style 5-button Transmitters
>>> On-board door Lock relays with double pulse lock/unlock capability*
