Then it was time to complete the audio and multimedia install. Martin contacted Jeremy Brenner of Harman Consumer, the parent company of JBL Car Audio, to pick the right gear. The install started with a Clarion flip-screen LCD unit and it’s all JBL from there on in. The lows head to a JBL Kappa1 1600.1 mono amp where the signals are amp’ed up to the subwoofers. The JBL GTO 10-inch subwoofers fire outwards to create quite a disturbance inside the cabin, being mounted right in the center console. The mids and highs come amplified courtesy of a JBL Kappa 1 125.1 4-channel to drive the JBL GTI 6.5-inch components in the doors. With an innovative install and top grade components, the sounds can only be described as stunning.
