Custom Car Install at Abt

Abt’s Mobile Installation team delivered a rolling symphony of sound to the Abt sales floor this past weekend.  A 2010 Mercedes C300 has been outfitted with Focal speakers, amplifiers, and subwoofers.  The most impressive part of the installation is zero modification to the factory interior of the vehicle.  While keeping all of the factory controls in the dashboard and cutting no holes in the panels, the audio has gone from plain and typical to vibrant and lifelike.

Alpine provides a solution for uncompromised sound without changing the radio in the dashboard of the vehicle, while Focal provides our sales and installation teams almost limitless options in breathing excitement back into driving your car. Quality sound and practicality meet in the trunk of this vehicle leaving room for golf bags, groceries, luggage, or your most recent purchase from Abt. (wink wink)

Visions of subwoofers that fill the trunk vanish as the sleek interior of the vehicle is complimented in the trunk.

Also hidden in this installation is a custom radar detector to help avoid those pesky red light camera tickets and/or speeding ticket. Don’t forget a remote start, which we have available for almost all makes, models, and years, including Mercedes Benz. The remote start used in this installation is unique in the way it is controlled: your smartphone. If you own a Droid, iPhone, or Blackberry, you can start your car from virtually anywhere with cellular service.

If you have questions about improving the sound in your vehicle or keeping your car interior warm this winter, contact our Mobile Installation Department and don’t forget  to come on in and see the car.

Focal Home Speakers Now At Abt

Focal At Abt

I was listening to a pair of the Focal Chorus 726V floor standing speakers in the store the other day and almost forgot that I was listening to speakers. I had to learn more about them.

They sound great due to the technology that Focal has developed since their inception. All their speakers (even the ones for $495/pair) use drivers that are built by them for them, not some other companies’ parts. They also make their own cabinets unlike most companies. This allows them to know exactly what you will get with each speaker that leaves their factory. This translates into transparent speakers that almost disappear when listening.

Call an audio specialist at the store for more information or stop by and listen for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Watches Available at Abt

Women today have lots of status symbols available to them.  Designer clothes, shoes, bags (like our Tumi selection), hats, sunglasses, bracelets, rings, necklaces, and the list goes on.  For us guys, we have two.  Our cars and our watches.  While Abt doesn’t sell cars (although if you are in the area, come see our souped-up Smart Car with a Focal system) we do sell watches.

Not only does Abt sell watches, but did you know that Abt sells watches ranging from very nice, basic models all the way up to a line that is worn by some members of royalty around the world?  When I say royalty, I mean actual monarchs, like HRH Prince Edward of Wessex and King Mohammed VI of Morocco, and worldwide celebrity royalty, like Michael Jordan and David Beckham, both wear watches by Franck Muller.  You can see a large assortment of these watches right here in our Time Watch Boutique in the atrium.  (An interesting note is that Franck Muller doesn’t pay anyone to wear their time pieces!)

So what if you’re not the biggest of big dogs, a king or world wide soccer phenomenon?  You can look like one with a great new time piece by Franck Muller.  You can also find fine watches by the likes of Ball, Oris, Gucci, Movado, Rado, and many more.  There’s nothing like putting on a nice watch.  Get out there and show ‘em who the big dog is by showing off your brand new watch from Abt today!
