Not sure about the "audio addict" part, but crazy sure he is! He even had LCD monitors in the rear seat head rests - and the boot is full ICE stuff. So who was watching anything on those monitors? And there were monitors in the sun-visors too, apart from the one on the dash.

IMHO this is not a personal-use installation. There are plenty of such installs used in car audio shows, and they are purpose-built for those shows. Rather impractical for daily use, unless he plans for powering the car via music! What else could justify the driver's rear view with 2 humongous amps and a bank of speakers? Talk about killing a mosquito with a Bofors gun!

Guys, the setup of the screens is the old one. He has taken out that setup and put in a new one. Except the pics which have the amp in it. All the other pics show the old audio setup. Here is his web site. Check it out. stevemeadedesigns.com - Home.

Buddy the pics excluding the amp and the speaker holes in the door are all new. He used the new amp to power the 8 fi subs. Not the 4 old subs. Check Out his site. It says it there.

frankly..i feel,there is a limit to spice up your ICE but going over board is something too much.
i guess he should get an open top vehicle and make it a mobile sounding machine...
sheesh..i wouldnt prefer this even if i got it free
