In car Entertainment
Taxi conversion :-)
I am often called on to do taxi service for my teenage daughter and friends,
I also enjoy a good sound in the car. Here are the details for upgraded sound:
Starting at the back I replaced the standard VW speakers with 2way 100w JVC's.
Then under the backseat I jig sawed two 6" x 9" holes, careful to avoid the bed
mechanism. I installed 200w 6x9 Denon 3 way speakers.
They are hidden behind a new grill cloth I wrapped over the kick board.
At the front I replaced the 4" VW's with 6" JVC's. As Wanda is a caravelle with
electric windows the winder is not a problem. I also installed Calibra tune-up
tweeters with cross-overs on the windscreen posts.
I drive all this with a Sony MP3 player. Cheapest basic unit, need to upgrade one day! The
original VW clock is really expensive, the large battery operated
one you see velcro'd onto the dash is a third of the price and easier to read.
Note also the blue tint to the dash guages. (
Cool blue dash lighting (Description here))
Although not strictly ICE (In Car Entertainment) another feature is the ice-box in the
air-con ducting on the roof above the gear lever. Keeps beer COLD with zero battery drain!
