Today we want to show you the awesome audio upgrade to a Volkswagen classic bus and the custom-built center console. Working on this classic orange beauty was a great experience for us, and our priority was to perfectly match the materials with the colors of the interior of the VW bus.
In classic vehicles like this one it is important to keep everything simple, which is why we decided to install a JVC deck with simple controls into the dashboard, in order to make it look natural on the vehicle.
We decided to build the console with the same materials used in the seats of the bus, in order to guarantee a perfect matching with the interior. We added 2 cup holders in the front and 2 in the rear of the VW; and also included a mini fridge under the lid that can be turned on or off by a switch. We also added GFI power ports in the rear of the console, in order to provide power for uses like charging a cell phone or connecting a vacuum cleaner.
Speakers And Subwoofer
For the speakers we decided to use Hertz in order to provide a high quality sound experience. In the front, we added the speakers in the doors and used orange cones to create a perfect match with the color scheme. The grills that we used to protect the speakers were painted with the idea to match the tweeters in the doors. To create a better sound experience, we decided to carefully place the tweeters higher in the doors without interfering with the window crank.
A 10” subwoofer was added under the center row of seats with the idea to hide it and prevent theft.
For the rear speakers we choose 2 sets of Hertz 6.5” and we placed them on the 3rd row of seats by building custom boxes. All the speaker rings and grills were painted to match the interior of the vehicle.
