What Audio Upgrade B&B Audioconcepts Recommends for Volkswagen Caddy

This brand new sporty looking VW Caddy drove in for an Custom Audio Upgrade with full soundproofing. The VW Caddy owner opted for Hertz Mille Pro speakers after some discussions, the Mille Pro offer very good sound quality coupled with a high quality crossover. The amplifier and subwoofer comes in the form of XFIRE, which offers high end backend support which is vita for powering front end speakers. This VW Caddy Audio Upgrade was all installed to work through the VW factory original entertainment system. Additional Soundproofing was applied to ensure minimum sound leakage and further improve sound quality. The doors and panels were full soundproofed using Skinz Soundproofing.

VW Hertz Mille Pro Speakers

The MPK 165P.3 car audio speakers system energy in the mid-low range ensures a unique listening experience, creating the ideal set up alongside a powerful subwoofer section. The MP 165P.3 woofer electroacoustic parameters have been forged to give it the pure and solid sound of an authentic mid-bass, designed for high dynamic systems. The MPK 165P.3 timbre balance is entrusted to the MPCX 2P.3 crossover featuring a copper inductor with a 1 mm diameter wire to filter the MP 165P.3, which, with its nominal 3 Ω requires high impulse currents. The tweeter MP 25.3 12dB/Octave crossover is built with extremely high quality 160V bi-metallized polyester film capacitor and an air coil inductor. The tweeter (MP 25.3) level control (0/+2.5dB) provides the ability to adapt the system response to the listener preferences and considering the components installation position.

Skinz Sound Deadening for VW Caddy

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.

 

Connection Cables for VW Caddy Audio Upgrade

Hanging electronic equipment together is a sophisticated science in itself. Connection was introduced by Audison in the early 200's and consists of ranges of products for wiring power to amplifiers, amplifiers to speakers and head units to amplifiers. Cables and interconnects are available in three different grades depending on how discerning the listener and their choice of equipment is. Just as you wouldn't run your Ferrari on Gin you wouldn't connect your Audison Voce speakers to a Voce amplifier with bell wire. Aside from the quality requirement, when dealing with the extreme current capabilities of large amplifiers to use inferior power wiring could prove extremely dangerous.
