The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most capable off road vehicles ever built, hands down. Remaining nearly unchanged for over 70 years, the Wrangler has been the pinnacle of a classic design that has stood the test of time. Drop the top, turn the key, and go cruising (down the highway or up a mountain, your choice).
So how do you make one of the coolest SUVs in the world, even cooler? That’s where Abt’s Mobile Electronics department comes into play. They recently took a black Wrangler Unlimited and gave it some serious gusto. Modifications include:
- Subwoofer Stealthbox
- Blue interior LEDs and multicolor LEDs under the chassis
- Headrest monitors
- Satellite radio
- Backup camera
- Viper SmartStart

Abt’s mobile audio department can turn your car into your own personal playground. John S., mobile electronics department manager called me today and said, “Do you want to come down and see an iPad that I just put in the dash of a car?”
I grabbed my camera and headed down to mobile electronics. I had an image in my head of what I thought it would look like, and admittedly, I wasn’t sure what the iPad would do, but I knew it would look cool.
When I got to the installation bay, I looked in the passenger door as John finished putting on the final touches and tested everything to make sure that the stereo and iPad worked correctly. I told him how cool it looked and then I stopped and said, but what does it do?
< John explained that the iPad could control everything from the ignition, to the locks, to the security system on the Tahoe. He went on to show me it worked in conjunction with the Viper Smart Start App on his Blackberry.
In addition to controlling major systems in the car, it also performs all the functions of an iPad, like accessing iTunes and iPad Apps.
The iPad works off the wireless or 3G network, so if you want to use it as a GPS, radio, or streaming video player, go for it. You can do virtually anything with it.

Abt’s mobile audio department can get any vehicle ready to rock! It’s almost boating season, so make sure you aren’t stuck on a lake with nothing to listen to.
We just got finished installing a new stereo system in a Yamaha jet boat today. It’s got new Kenwood speakers, a receiver made to use with an iPod, an Alpine marine amp, and Alpine marine sub woofers.
Whatever mode of transportation you use, Abt’s got a mobile audio solution for you!
Abt’s Escalade has found a new home. Sold last week, the Cadillac Escalade left the Abt showroom and will be a great truck for it’s new owners. The Escalade had hundreds of hours of custom audio work, and a Playstation in the back for added fun! Sad to see it go, but we know it’s in a good home!
Have you stopped by Abt’s mobile audio department lately? If you have, then you have probably heard beats pounding from the new Focal Speakers. Focal has four lines of mobile audio speakers—the Utopia Be, K2 Power, Polyglass, and Access 1.
Abt carries the K2 Power and Polyglass series of speakers and amplifiers. I listened to them this morning when I talked to Neil R, (manager of the mobile audio department) wow, they are impressive. Neil told me that Focal speakers have a pretty cool story. The goal of Focal, a French company, is to make speakers that faithfully reproduce music. They refuse to compromise the quality of sound. One of their speaker lines, Utopia Be, is made with Beryllium—an element 100 times more expensive than gold. This is a company that constantly pursues innovation so they can share their utopia with customers.
If you are interested in the other lines by Focal, talk to one of the mobile audio specialists. Even if we don’t stock the model that you are interested in, we are able to order it for you.
