It takes a lot for me to get on a train, I fricking hate them! Everything from the itchy, crappy pattern seats to the overpriced tickets, and don’t get me started on those message boards that tell you your train is on time, even though it should have arrived 15-pissing-minutes ago! Grrr!
Anyway, why am I currently sitting in a tin sweatbox with a bunch of briefcase w**kers and a load of stinking festival goers? I’ll tell you why, because I’m carless, not careless, carless, as I’ve just dropped my A6 off at an installers with a boot load of JL Audio.
Yep, after months, in fact make that a year, of saying I was going to sort the audio in the Avant it’s finally happening. My original plan was to go a bit crazy with the install and use plenty of that huge boot space.
However, since having a little one, I’ve come to the realisation that I do occasionally need some boot space for grown up things. So I’ve done a complete U-turn and now I’m going for a stealth build and having everything hidden away.
Now a clever build like this needs a special installer and that’s why I’ve left my car in the capable hands of Saj and the team at SJ Concepts in Newport, south Wales.
These guys are a ‘JL Audio Signature Dealer’ meaning they are part of a network of audio retailers that are the best of the best. And, they have ensured me they can build a stealthy JL Audio system that will meet all of my audio needs, happy days.
For me using JL was an easy choice, I’ve had a few installs featuring all JL Audio kit and they’ve all sounded awesome. I’m always amazed just how much performance they get out of their super-slim amps and subs.
From the super low-profile 400W 10TW3 PowerWedge 10-inch subwoofer system, that is only 4.5-inches deep, to the gorgeous 700W XD700/5v2 amp, which is just 2-inches in depth. JL Audio offer maximum performance per inch (a bit like Midge – Jules) and I can’t wait to see what SJ Concepts do with my kit.
Anyway gotta go, I’ve missed my connection and I need to sell a kidney so I can afford a coffee.
