Project Scion: 2012 Scion iQ Entertainment Upgrades 

The PASMAG Project IQ was ready for some entertainment upgrades, so we took it to see Franky “Crazy” Valenti at 20Hz Audio Sound & Security with the goal to transform this cool little run-about into something truly memorable. With some help from Clarion, Wirez, Lumens and LG, the diminutive Scion iQ has been transformed into a mobile theatre that rivals some of the full-sized theatres we used to visit when we were kids! Check out the behind-the-scenes action and see how the audio system came to fruition.
