Since my family moved recently, taking it back to Benchmark audio in Upstate NY wasn't practical. It went from a 6 hour drive to a 15 hour drive, which just isn't going to happen.
So after looking at a ton of shops, the decision was made to take the Car to Acoustic Images in Mooresville, NC. The crew at AI employs a number of veteran competitors including Bryan Wilkinson, Jason Syner, Mark Worell and other well known industry installers.
I also got a little help from some great manufacturers: JL Audio, Second Skin and AudioControl have all helped out with the project. We will be covering each of those sponsor's products usage in the rebuilt system.
The goals of the system were pretty easy:
- front stage 100% Active, getting rid of the Alpine F#1 Passive Crossover Networks
- Install New Subwoofers
- Replace Existing Sound Dampening Materials
