2015 Nissan Murano Platinum - system was designed with a goal of top-notch sound quality, as well as bass that is clean, tight and punchy with the ability to be VISCERALLY powerful, while retaining as much of a factory stock appearance as possible AND taking up minimal cargo space. Before any equipment was added or changed, we applied multiple layers and types of sound deadening to ensure optimum noise reduction and sound quality. All 4 doors, the A-pillars, and the entire rear cargo area (including wheel wells) were prepped and covered in Roadkill Expert vibration dampening material, then an additional layer of Roadkill Ultimate acoustic foam was added. The results were an eerily quiet vehicle with a dramatically reduced noise floor.
Starting up front, the factory head unit was utilized in order to retain the factory look, as well as retain the factory 360° camera system. We replaced the front stock Bose speakers with a Focal Utopia 165W-XP 2-way component set in the factory locations, a Focal Utopia-M 3" midrange for the center channel, and a Focal Flax 6.5" coax set for rear staging. 3 JL Audio 10" W7 subwoofers were chosen for their ability to to be clean and highly accurate as well as providing maximum output in a smaller space. An 8-channel JL Audio VX800/8 amp with built-in digital signal processing (DSP) provides 100 watts per channel to all front speakers and 75 watts to rear speakers. A JL Audio RD1500/1 provides 1500 watts to the subwoofers. 2 Fullriver FT410 High-Performance AGM Batteries provide voltage stabilization.
The enclosure for the subs is a very interesting design utilizing the unseen area of an oversized spare tire compartment to provide the majority of needed airspace, allowing a large portion of the large frame of the subs to extend below the "deck." The result is a large enclosure housing 3 large-framed subs that take up precious little cargo space. Finishing touches on the cargo area include plexiglass windows to allow viewing of the amps and batteries featuring etched glass with the "Explicit Customs" logo. The vehicle's owner is a life-long Georgia Bulldogs fan so their logos were integrated and featured as well. The subs and plexiglass windows are backlit with LED lighting which can be remote-controlled and changed to whatever color shade that is desired. Wiring consists of JL Audio Blue 1/0 Premium Power Wire, Stinger Pro 12 & 16 gauge speaker wire, Stinger 8000 Series RCA cables and JL Audio Premium ANL fuses and fuse holders.
