Audioconcepts Recommends

This stuning black Bentley drove in for some huge upgrades in the audio and stereo departments.  This Bentley lacked any of these features, Touch Screen Navigation, DAB Radio, Bluetooth phone integration, Apple Carplay, Android Auto compatibility, Front and Rear camera integration, Mirroring of certain devices.  B&B Audioconcepts recommended the Kenwood 9 series flagship double din touch screen replacement for the original featureless Bentley head unit. The Audioconcepts Team retained all the original Bentley functionality as well as integrating all the new tech features of the Bentley Head Unit Replacement Kit with the Kenwood Double Din Touch Screen unit. The BENHUR (Bentley Head Unit Replacement Kit) allows Kenwood, Pioneer or Alpine double din head units to be integrated into the Bentley.

As well as the stereo the Bentley needed a fresh sound system and we recommended some seriously dynamic sound with the Focal K and Focal K2 speakers. These Focal speakers put out such a beautiful Full-Range sound. Now if you love your music then these Focal Speakers will play clean and loud high frequencies that makes you lose yourself in the music because you won't be able to hear anything around you when these Focal's are turned up to the max.

No install would be complete without the XFIRE range of Amplifiers and some Big Bass in the form of two 12 inch Subwoofers in complete enclosure. The XFIRE Subwoofers really do punch out some hard bass. All these components are fine tuned to work with each other in perfect harmony to get the best sound quality, this is where the B&B Audioconcepts Team excel with their knowledge and experience of setting up and installing such car audio and visual systems.

FOCAL K Power Speakers

The car audio kit ES 165 K is composed of two 6,5" (165 mm) woofers and two 025/32" (20mm) TKM tweeters. This is a compact solution that’s easy to install. The K2 Power Kevlar® cones used for the speaker drivers of the ES 165 K component kit deliver extremely dynamic sound and perfect definition. These cones endowed with all the ideal qualities, lightness, rigidity and excellent damping, have also been given the new TMD suspension. Initially developed for Sopra high-fidelity loudspeakers, the exclusive design of the suspension removes unwanted resonances and reduces the effects of distortion.

The two TKM inverted dome tweeters are composed of aramid fibres. Their exclusive “M”-shaped profile is designed to control deformation of the dome, and to perfectly reproduce high frequencies up to 22 kHz 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.
The kit is supplied with aluminum and mesh grilles.

 

FOCAL KX2 Power Speakers

The ES 165 KX2 component kit is composed of two 6½" (165 mm) woofers with Kevlar® cones providing an extremely rich and punchy sound. The centre of the cone is equipped with a phase plug for improved sound dispersion around the vehicle.

The two 'M'-shaped aramid-fibre TKMX inverted dome tweeters are equipped with bi-amplified crossovers. This enables perfect control over the high end for providing very smooth treble with perfect definition.

Thanks to its excellent power handling, this kit is the reference product of the K2 Power range. It even won over the hearts of the experts when it was officially revealed at the CES in Las Vegas.

 

PRECISION AND DYNAMICS

The speaker drivers used for the K2Power have been completely redesigned. Each component is the result of extensive research in acoustics to push back the limits of performance, of power and of precision! The K2Power Kevlar® cone, a product of unique expertise Made In Focal, is to this day second to none. Composed of an ultra-light foam structure sandwiched between a thin layer of Kevlar® aramid fibres, and a layer of glass fibres, the K2Power cone combines three key factors of quality acoustics:

>>> Rigidity

>>> Lightness

>>> Damping, for precise and dynamic sound.

 

SAY GOODBYE TO DISTORTION

The new K2 Power TKM tweeter features an exclusive “M”-shaped structure. This new-generation aramid-fibre inverted dome tweeter provides great precision in the very high end, and its combination with a “push-pull” motor with IAL2 technology extends the low end of the frequency response and provides extraordinary harmonic balance.

Take a look at how the Focal K2 Power Speakers are manufactured this is why B&B Audioconcepts only stock and deal with the best quality.
