Land Rover defender speaker upgrades

Defender audio upgrades

With many years building some of the finest defenders for audio upgrades in the UK and Europe, we have literally put blood, sweat and tears into perfecting the best in audio for the Land Rover Defender.

With customers travelling from as far as Spain we are doing something right!

We have developed a wide range of package to suit a wide variety of budgets, with upgrades from £180 fitted all the way up to 3k upwards.

We can offer a wide range of customisation, the possibilities are endless!

Sound proofing

Highly recomended even if your not fitting speakers, sound deadening not only helps limit sound loss, but it helps keep sound out.

when we sound deaden defenders we see around a 50% reduction in mechanical and road noise in the cab, there are many different levels to sound deadening. 

our top speaker packages come with the full cab being sound deadened and the doors!

speaker installation

Tried and tested for hours upon end the speakers we use are of the highest quality, we only use 3 brands of speakers for our Defender speaker upgrades, Audison, Hertz and Eton.


Amplifier installation

If you have come for the best in defender audio we only mainly use Audison Prima series amplifiers, these are finest in small form factor amplifiers designed and made in Italy, these amplifiers have stood the test of time and are fantastic.

there are 2 versions the AP8.9 this is an 8 channel amplifier with DSP built in with a total power output of 520w then there is the Forza edition our biggest selling go to amplifier this produces 1040w and takes our systems to that next level.
this amplifier is small enoughto be fitted and mounted under the passenger seat base in the lock box.
the 8 channel amplifier can be used to run a fully active front end and rear speakers with additional outputs for an underseat subwoofer or a larger rear woofer 



When we say subwoofer we dont mean the kind you will find in the back of the local reprobates corsa parked in the local carpark sounding gash and looking a complete t**t!

The woofer upgrades we offer are designed to enhane your audio experience yes they will play low but will never be tuned by us the over power the speakers, instead they will compliment your speaker upgrade.

We offer a few options when it comes to the right subwoofer.
We can offer a small discreet 82 compact subwoofer that sits under the cubby box using the mud stuff sub locker.
There is a larger subwoofer upgrade that sits behind the bulkhead,
or we can make you bespoke made custom fit subwoofer, compact enough to not interfere with load space, these generally sit between the tub in the rear.
