The Original Godzilla – Nissan R32 GTR.
The Nissan R32 GTR ushered in a new era of high-performance cars. With a twin-turbocharged engine and advanced all-wheel-drive system, the GTR dominated the streets and the racetracks of their time. The owner of this GTR came to us seven years ago for a comprehensive sound system installation, and returned recently for some equipment upgrades.
Decibels To Match The Kilowatts!
The outcome for this system was simple – match sound quality with solid dynamics at very capable output levels. To this end, the basis of the system was built around:
JL Audio Slash 300/4 four channel amplifier
JL Audio Slash 1000/1 mono amplifier
Image Dynamics IDMAX 12″ subwoofer
0 Gauge power wiring
Equipment upgrades consisted of:
Pioneer DEH-X7800DAB CD Receiver
Focal PS165FX Flax 6.5″ component speakers
Focal PC165F Flax 6.5″ coaxial speakers
SoundSkins sound deadening
So how does it sound?
Huge. The combination of the Image Dynamics IDMAX 12″, well-matched Focal Flax speakers all round, with the dynamic power on tap from the JL Audio Slash amplifiers makes for a huge soundstage with seemingly endless output capability. As with all our full system installations, we’re meeting with the customer once the system ‘breaks in’ to re-evaluate and re-tune it to their preference and to get the most out of the new speakers. Suffice to say, this audio system has grunt to match the RB26DETT under the bonnet!
