A client from Whigham recently visited Precision Audio to update the audio system and technology in his 2007 Lincoln Navigator. After inspecting the vehicle, we talked to the client about the features he wanted and how he likes to listen to his music. After establishing a clear vision of the client’s expectations, we invited him to audition several of the upgrades on our display board and then provided him with a quote to complete the installation.
Navigator Radio and Backup Camera Upgrade
We started the project by removing the factory radio to make way for a Kenwood DDX5707S multimedia receiver. This new radio features a 6.8-inch touchscreen display and includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. We also installed an Echomaster backup camera that automatically shows an image of everything behind the vehicle as soon as the transmission is in reverse. A PAC Audio RadioPro interface allowed us to retain the radio buttons’ functionality on the steering wheel and the rear-seat entertainment system controls.
JL Audio and Rockford Fosgate Amplifier and Speakers
The next step was to upgrade the speakers in the Navigator. We mounted a set of JL Audio C2-570X 5×7-inch coaxial speakers in the front and rear doors. We added a set of C2-075ct tweeters up on the dash to lend additional clarity to the system. For bass, the client chose a pair of Rockford Fosgate Punch-Series P3D412 12-inch subwoofers. The subs are installed in a large enclosure that features a pair of slot vents to improve the system’s low-frequency output capabilities.
The client chose a JL Audio JD400/4 four-channel amp to drive the front and rear speakers. He picked a Rockford Fosgate T1000-1bdCP amp for the subs. The JL amp can produce up to 75 watts per channel, and the Rockford can deliver an impressive 1,000 watts RMS to ensure that the bass is precise and detailed.
We mounted the amplifiers and a pair of MESA power distribution blocks on a custom panel that fits nicely behind the passenger-side trim panel in the rear of the vehicle. Zero-AWG power cable feeds current from the battery to the amp rack to maximize the audio system’s performance.
Your Best Choice for Audio System Upgrades
After we had all the stereo equipment installed in the Lincoln, our technicians finished the project by setting the crossovers and level controls on the amplifiers to make sure the system sounds great. The client had a listen and was thrilled with the performance. He loved how deep the Rockford subs played and how clear the JL speakers sounded.
