AWARDS THE YEAR’S BEST PROD­UCTS!

WE IN­TER­VIEW FO­CAL’S CEO REAL MIRAGE… SEE­ING IS BE­LIEV­ING!

InCar Entertainment  - - FRONT PAGE -

Sum­mer is just about here and the days are get­ting longer, warmer and more con­ducive to long drives with the win­dows down. And if you don’t have a great audio sys­tem to ‘rock the jams’ then you’re miss­ing out on one of life’s great plea­sures!

So once again this year we gather to pay homage to the best the car audio in­dus­try has to of­fer. All the prod­ucts you’ll see in the fol­low­ing pages will pro­vide years of mu­si­cal bliss and will im­prove and en­hance the fac­tory set-ups pro­vided by the car man­u­fac­tur­ers. As we’ve been find­ing for the last few years, the qual­ity of gear in gen­eral is get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter while prices are be­com­ing more af­ford­able.

Th­ese days, the gap be­tween the win­ners and the highly com­mended is mostly so nar­row that the judges’ job is now ever harder. Ef­fec­tively, what this means to you, the con­sumer, is that the pool of prod­uct choice is now ocean wide. And within the con­text of any given sys­tem ex­per­i­men­ta­tion is en­cour­aged – you may just find that a highly com­mended set of speak­ers, rather than a cat­e­gory win­ner, may syn­er­gise with your ex­ist­ing am­pli­fier with a su­pe­rior per­for­mance out­come. Or not… it’s all about au­di­tion­ing for your­self with your own ears. But trust us; the guid­ance we pro­vide should be an es­sen­tial start­ing point for your car audio jour­ney of dis­cov­ery. Lis­ten to as much of the gear within th­ese pages as you pos­si­bly can and make wise choices based on your per­sonal taste – don’t let fash­ion or short-term trends dic­tate your choices. That sce­nario will lead to even­tual dis­sat­is­fac­tion and an ex­pen­sive merry-go-round of gear.

But use the prod­ucts in this In­Car Awards sec­tion to guide you; let us di­rect you with our sug­ges­tions that are sure to launch you on the road to awe­some in-car sound and the bliss­ful en­joy­ment of the art of mu­sic.
