SHOUTOUTS


ARC Audio, Kenwood USA, Metra Electronics, David @ Sound Speed in Clovis California, Me the Fishman (for never Giving up), To all of my old students at Fishcamp who at one point or another had their hands in this, I wouldn’t be here without you guys…and to my ex wife who always said it couldn’t be done!


 

The computer and networking setup was done by Jason Boyd and Albert Riveria. Wired by Sound Speed In Clovis, CA handled the vehicle electrics which included a pair of Tsunami batteries, one under the hood and the other near the amps in the cargo area to provide plenty of reserve power for the system. A Tsunami high-output alternator was added to provide ample charging and the power, ground and interconnects were all Tsunami wire as well.

 

At a cost of almost $250,000 and plenty after hours labor, Fishman has truly outdone himself here. But he has paid his dues and this is the reward. We can only imagine how many copycat projects rocking iPads we’ll see at the next CES Show.
