STRIPPING OUT the Huracan Evo For A WORLD FIRST!! | Behind The Sound - Lamborghini Huracan Evo

In Volume 2 of Behind The Sound on the Lamborghini Huracan Evo, we are stripping out the car in preparation for installing the world's highest spec sound system for one of these cars!

This incredible Viola Pasifae Lamborghini Huracan Evo, which you may previously have seen in the ownership of @Archie Hamilton Racing , is in our workshops for a colossal sound upgrade - this new system is not only a world first, but the highest spec Lamborghini Huracan Evo sound system in the world!

After the car arrived and was checked over, we have begun stripping out the interior and front tub. This is required so we can not only sound proof the vehicle, but also run brand new speaker cabling throughout the cabin and into the front tub to connect up the new system.

In the cabin, we have soundproofed the floor, roof, back panel and doors - both the door cards and the metal door panels themselves. This all helps eliminate road noise, but most importantly, creates a much better environment for the new sound system to perform in.

A lot of new audio components are being fitted throughout the cabin to create this system. The factory Lamborghini speakers have been removed from the doors, and are being replaced with the Audison Thesis 6.5" Sax mid-bass woofers. These are mounted in 3D printed custom made speaker housings, which match the original speaker housing design, but with much more space for the Thesis speaker to be placed within.

In the dash, the factory tweeters - tiny little plastic components - have been removed from their position pointing towards the windscreen. This is never optimal tweeter positioning as the audio frequencies just bounce around between the dashboard and windscreen. In their place, the Audison Thesis Violino tweeters are being fitted into custom A-Pillars, essential due to both the size of the Thesis components, but also to fit them on axis, directing sound straight to the passengers.

Behind the seats, we are fitting not one but TWO Hertz Mille Legend 8" subwoofers. These subs are incredibly punchy for an 8" woofer, with an incredible magnet on the base of the unit. The reason for two 8" subs is dictacted by space - the shelf available behind the seats is quite shallow before you hit the firewall, so a sub behind each seat instead of one larger sub is the most optimal fitment. With the custom sub box being created and mounted directly to the vehicle, this will create incredible bass transfer.

Behind the passenger seat we have installed the processor for the system - the Audison Bit One HD Virtuoso. This is Audison's top tier processor and provides an incredible level of processing power to manage the signals used in the new system. As the Lamborghini will be running THREE class A/B amplifiers utilising a full digital install, the processing power is essential for achieving maximum clarity. The processor recieves the inputs from the factory head unit providing the audio source, and cleans up those signals before sending them to the Amplifiers, which in turn power the components to play sound. With this set up, we can send the cleanest possible signal to the amplifiers to ensure we have use of every last bit of power provided from this epic set up.

Finally, in the front tub, we are installing THREE Audison Thesis amplifiers - two Due's and one Uno. The Due's provide two channels of amplificaton each to the woofers and tweeters, and the Uno will power the two subwoofers - everything running fully active. Thesis amplifiers are not small, so it is a bit of an engineering challenge to get everything to fit in the tiny front boot. We are custom fabricating an amp rack to hold the amplifiers in place, and creating a solution for the cabling so that everything is neatly in place but also easily removable, should the tub ever need removing to access parts such as the battery.

We will be doing a lot more videos on this build going in depth on the fabrication and fitment, so make sure you're subscribed!
