Aside from the great stance, what caught our attention on Hal's truck was the quality of the audio installation. While Hal had to go all the way to Houston for his suspension, Justin McCarry and the rest of Selective Audio was right in Hal's backyard in Meridian, Mississippi. Flip down the tailgate of the Escalade and you'll be greeted by deeply polished wood inserts and a gigantic Rockford Fosgate T40001bd amp with 4,000 watts of power. The passenger side of the bed holds two Rockford Fosgate 2FHD hybrid digital capacitors, while the driver side holds two Exide Purple Haze deep cycle batteries to help with the extra power draw. The forward part of the bed was sacrificed for a subwoofer enclosure that's visible when you tilt the rear seats forward. Two 15-inch Rockford Fosgate T2 subs were mounted in the same polished wood as the bed. The midrange is transmitted through 61/2-inch and 51/2-inch MB Quart components in the front and rear doors, and the entire system is orchestrated by a Kenwood KVT-715 DVD head unit in the dash. The Kenwood unit also works with the 7-inch visor monitor on the passenger side. Rear seat occupants get their own monitors via Myron & Davis headrests that each have their own DVD player built in.
This truck wasn't built in a day; the quality work and long hours shows through every facet of the Escalade. Hal would like to thank all of the guys that put their hard work into his EXT, including Ekstensive, Selective Audio, Rockford Fosgate, Lexani, and Twin States Body Shop. Most of all, he would like to thank his wife, Engret, who was supportive of the project the whole way.
