TorqueCars™ ICE installation tips

How to design and build a high power car audio install

We provide in depth advise on all aspects of ICE design and build from selection of components to design of a custom boot install.

We will expand this section in the near future but have consulted with leading ICE installers to get the best cutting edge advice for your ICE install.

We have a dedicated ICE section in our forum which deals with the Frequently Asked ICE install questions and looks at common ICE problems, so feel free to join and get advice from our members on any issues or problems you are having with your ICE setup, speaker removal and head unit replacement.
