Press Release (unedited): STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® returns to the lanes as a co-sponsor of the 2018 Car Audio Championships, held at the Louisville Expo Center October 13-14. The event will occupy the Broadbent Arena and Pavilion, taking up more than 110,000 square feet of indoor space.
KICKER is also attending the event to support JY Power’s™ now-famous converted delivery truck, dubbed “The Cube.” Touted as one of the most powerful demo vehicles in the country, the 60,000-watt bass machine features 40 L7® square 15-inch subwoofers powered by 20 KICKER KX-Series 2,400-watt mono amplifiers. On its outer wall, the rolling garrison also includes 162 eight-inch KICKER KM-Series coaxial speakers powered by 12 weatherproof, 1,200-watt stereo amps.
JY Power’s co-owner Travis Young said significant upgrades were recently made to the Cube in anticipation of Finals. Among the improvements are a weatherproof mid-bass array, a reinforced cab and windshield, and an upgraded charging system from Custom Electric Services.
“We’re coming to show off the improvements,” Young said. “We used a dozen (KICKER) CompRT® 12-inch (thin) subs on 7,200 watts to increase the demo sound quality. We’re going to show off some lows also.”
Competitors and spectators will have a chance to win thousands of dollars in free prizes, including KICKER Bullfrog® outdoor Bluetooth® speakers. Each person in attendance will receive one free raffle ticket, and names will be drawn throughout the event.
This year marks the fifth consecutive year of three car-audio organizations coming together for their championship events, dubbed “Unified Finals.” More than 400 dB Drag Racing, IASCA and MECA competitors have already pre-registered. As last year, dB Drag Racing will compete in three locations simultaneously via online streaming.
The Finals run from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday. For more information, visit www.dbdragracing.com, www.iasca.com, or www.mecacaraudio.com
