Mitek at Car + Sound 2006 in Sinsheim Germany
Friday 14 April 2006
The annual industry favorite event, the Sinsheim Car + Sound Fair in Germany took place from April 6th to 9th.
Mitek Europe was present with an impressive booth : actually i twas the biggest stand we’ve ever had. On display was to be found : "Jack"- The nightmare for all other woofers, the new Coustic line as well as the new MTX XThunder range of products and some incredible demo vehicles from Northern Ireland, Austria, Germany and France. The hottest episode of MTV’s Pimp My Ride featuring the JackHammer was shown on a Plasma screen. And for consumption purposes... none other than the real MTX Energy drink from Austria. Throughout the show people were simply pulled towards the booth as if there was a big Magnet... No wonder ! Ever seen a magnet like Jack’s?
The award winning Renault 19 built by Audio Advice from Northern Ireland turned out to be so impressive that the sound did not even need to be turned up loud because visitors went silent after seeing this impressive install and paint job. The system includes 10 x MTX T7512-04 Superwoofers, MTX TXC highend components, 5 x MTX TA5302 amps and 5 x MTX TA5601 amps all wired with Streetwires.
There was also the Mini from Sound and Sign, Austria with a complete new install featuring a MTX T7512-44 Superwoofer in a custom vented fiberglass enclosure powered by an MTX TA5601 amp and a MTX TXC6.1 high-end component set in the front powered by a MTX TA5302 amp. The amps are mounted in the backs of the seats along with a Streetwires powercaps. An excellent straight forward system that proved also simple can sound awesome.
From Germany, we had Team Klangwerk present their BMW 3 series Touring with a smashing Sledgehammer install. MTX TXC4.1 and MTX TXC6.0 high-end components in the front and MTX THX502 coaxials in the rear powered by a MTX TA7804 amp and an MTX SLHT7510x2D Sledgehammer enclosure powered by an MTX TA91002 amp. The install sounded so good that Team Klangwerk had their hands full giving demos to all the people visiting the Mitek booth.
And from Pro Styling, France a nice Mercedes SLK with Lambo doors and a clean install with 2 x MTX MXA3002 amps powering front and rear speakers, 1 x MTX MXA8001 powering the woofers, 2x MTX MXS1004 Superwoofers in a vented enclosure, MTX THS652 components in the front and THX653 coaxials in the rear. The complete car was finished using beautiful yellow and black Alcantara leather in line with the color theme of the entire car.
A great show was had by all!
