INSTALL HIGHLIGHT | WRITTEN BY LEWIS JACKSON | SEPTEMBER 2018
Car audio can be a time consuming habit. Many times a project will get pushed to the wayside, making room for more pressing matters that life can throw our way. On occasion, it takes someone in our lives pushing us to revive the motivation to press on with our dream setups. This case is the latter, with Amanda Mann going that extra mile to initiate the build we have here today.
Our heroine told her husband John that she was taking his older SXT Neon out for a wash and detail, but was secretly bringing home his dream car, an SRT-4 neon in his favorite shade of blue. From that day on, no stone has been left unturned, and the list of mods on this car could choke a horse! In order to do the rest of the car justice, they knew just where to take it. Jim Hergesheimer of Streamline Customs in Vancouver, Washington had the perfect solution for the audio setup in the car, and knew space was at a premium.
Utilizing the back seat area, they were able to delete the radio all together, and use a bluetooth interface to feed signal to the trio of DD amps. The amps chosen were two DD SS2b’s, running the setup in the front stage, that flank a DD M2c, which in turn powers the Hi Def Tuned 3500 series 12’s. The drivers chosen for the front stage were the B Series components. Every aspect of the audio install reflects the vehicle’s true nature of being a purpose built show car. When asked, Amanda shared that her favorite thing about the subs was the ability to have the logos customized to match the paint scheme throughout the vehicle. John, the looming husband in this Husband/Wife build (and the inspiration for the license plates!) also appreciates the way the audio was seamlessly integrated into the build.
Builds like this are rarely “finished” and this one is no exception. When asked about future plans for the build, the dynamic duo state that they have ideas on what direction they would like to take next, and you better believe it will involve more DD Audio equipment.
Thanks to John and Amanda for sharing this awesome Neon SRT-4 with us, and to Streamline Audio for hosting us on the DD Kong Tour 2018. For those who are curious, here’s the remaining list of mods to the car:
