Once the enclosure and amp racks were back from the paint booth, Mike got down to the business of installing a monster audio system. Starting in the back, the enclosure was filled with three JL Audio W6 12-inch subs that are powered by a Rockford Fosgate BD1000.1 amp mounted onto the fiberglass rack in the rear side window. A Rockford Fosgate 600.4 amp powers the Focal 6-1/2-inch components mounted in each door. To keep the kids entertained, 7-inch Eiger Vision monitors, one in each headrest, one in the center console, and one in a center drop-down mount, can display DVD video or play Xbox 360 games. The focal point of the audio is the Alpine CVA-1005 head unit that allows Matt to control the 6-disc changer and the rest of the audio chores.
While it's gone through some changes, the majority of Matt's Expedition was built in only a week at Kustom Werks, and he's been more than happy with the results. The SUV draws enough attention with its paint and audio, but is still perfectly capable of hauling a load of people in comfort. Without the great work that went into the Expedition, it definitely wouldn't have kept looking so good after two years of family-hauler duty. Matt wanted to extend his thanks to Mike Swientek, Cory Scott, Skinny, CD Tire and Audio, 210 Customs, and his kids, Amanda, Ashton, Gavin, and Jayce.
