    Exclamation Vauxhall Combo Van Massive Ice Install

    How would you like this as your daily work van, and then at weekends use it to compete in the EMMA and IASCA Ice competitions. On top of the serious install there are a few body mods with more to come, the seats are soon to be replaced, full custom stainless exhaust system and there will be more, the guy who owns the van is called Mick and the van has been built up by Jeremy and the boys at Highdown Car Audio & Security, brakes and general maintanance by myself, this van is a serious contender at competitions and more Ice is planned including changing the rear subs and adding another amp, plus....................................

    This is how the install stands at the moment

    Alpine F#1 status head unit/screen and processor with USB socket in dash, Genesis Absolute 2.3 components, Genesis 12" Audiophile Subwoofer, Genesis DMX Amplifiers x3, 1 DMA Amplifier, 2x 15" Elevation Execution Subwoofers, JL Audio 1000/1 and 450/4 Amplifiers, Jl Audio XR653 Components x2,(in rear doors) 3x JL Audio 12W3V2 Subwoofers, Audison cables, 10metres Alcantera trimming including dashboard and doors, false roof with LED lighting.
    3 Batteries fed by switchable split charging system.
    2nd Competition outing at Donny came 2nd in ESPL and 3rd in SQ, Experienced Unlimited class, something which has never been achieved before ( usually people build systems for either class, this van achieves both )

    Mick, who owns the van is a window cleaner/floor cleaner, the system has been designed so that the rear still leaves enough room for his work gear to fit in comfortably and still be used every day use. As for being loud, it has been compared to twice the loundness of a handgun going off by the judges at Donny sound comp, but where as installers enter a vehicle in competition on either sound quality or loudness, this install actually achieves both which has not been done before.
    After the last competition it was entered into there is now another amp and a re-think into the rear subs going on to achieve more loudness and sound quality, you have to hear this to believe it
