In digging through some old pictures, I came across the pictures of my car audio system from 1994. This was built into a 1993 Honda Accord EX with the sole intention of entering IASCA competitions. While the scene has certainly changed since I was in the game, the sound remains the same. Loud, quality audio systems that reproduce a concert-level music atmosphere.

The system took first in every competition entered, and even took best of show in the 1994 Car Toys season finale. I managed to snag enough points for a nationals invitation, but bought a house and didn’t have the funds to compete at the national level.

The system consisted of the following components:

  • Alpine In-Dash CD Player

  • Alpine 6-Disc CD Changer

  • Alpine ???? 7-Band Parametric EQ

  • Alpine 3656 Active Dividing Network

  • (2) a/d/s/ PQ-10 Amplifiers (bridged to 2x100 for tweeters and midranges, one amp per channel)

  • (1) a/d/s/ PQ-20 Amplifier (bridged to 2x200 into the subwoofers)

  • Boston Acoustics Pro series 6.5” midrange and 1” tweeter, custom mounted into stock locations

  • Clifford Alarm System with Remote Start, Window and Sunroof Automation

  • Optima Red Top second battery

  • 1F Stiffening Cap

You can see pictures of the system in the gallery.
