Install Highlight: Jabee’s Ride Gets a Sound Upgrade

October 10, 2018

As an established hip hop recording artist, public speaker, restaurateur and DD Audio Brand Ambassador, Jabee spends a lot of time in his ride. Whether he’s flying down the interstate or stuck in the traffic jammed roads of OKC, Jabee needs a quality listening experience to keep his mind in the game as he drives from one engagement to the next.

Unfortunately for Jabee, his car, like many cars on the road, had a cheap factory installed audio system that had seen its better days.

That’s when Jabee got in touch with the staff at DD Audio where they were able to go over a wide range of aftermarket upgrade products that could be easily integrated with the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) stereo and wouldn’t require any alteration of the dash or factory aesthetics.

After assessing his budget, wants, and needs Jabee decided to go with one of DD Audio’s pre-configured options. He chose option 2.2 and then from the DD Audio Dealer Locator, he chose the team at Oklahoma Customs to upgrade his sound.

Option 2.2 from the Upgrade Your Sound™ guide consists of:

1 x SC6 6-Channel Signal Converter
1 x D6.500 6-Channel Amplifier
1 x LE-M08 Loaded Subwoofer Enclosure
1 x EC6.5 Components Set (Two 6.5in Woofers, Two 25mm Tweeters, Two Crossovers)
2 x EX6.5 Coaxial Speakers
All Connected with the DD Audio Z-Wire RCA System

The installation was quick and painless thanks to the modification-free design of the aftermarket equipment and talented staff at Oklahoma Customs.

The installers made quick work of taking out the interior paneling and properly removing the old speakers. Then the lightweight factory speaker wires were upgraded to DD Audio’s Z Wire. They were able to replace the worn and substandard speakers with the clean and powerful EC6.5 and EX6.5 speakers that fit perfectly in the the factory spots. No mods were needed, so when the panels were put back into place, the interior looked completely untouched and everything functioned the same as it had before. Since Jabee decided to keep his OEM stereo, an SC6 was to used to feed the proper audio signal to the D6.500 Amplifier that powers the entire system. All of these components plus the EC6.5 crossovers were neatly placed in the jack storage tray, under the rear cargo space, leaving Jabee with plenty of space for groceries or recording gear.

Finally, perhaps the most important addition, that B-B-B-BASS! With the LE-M08 loaded subwoofer enclosure, there was no math or science needed. The LE enclosures are built to DD specifications, so after some quick wiring and placement, all that was left was a bit of clean-up and signal / power testing.

The moment Jabee turned it on, he had a smile from satisfied ear to satisfied ear. The new system has given him improved audio clarity, power, and put some bump in his trunk. With the Upgraded Sound, Jabee’s head is in the game as he’s making moves across OKC.
