Publisher Comments:

Jason Syner has spent the last fifteen years developing vehicles with intricate audio and video systems. His 1995 Honda Civic, an artistic sculpture of flowing fiberglass and extreme paint, contained 11 Sony XPLOD amps, 10 Sony television monitors, and a thundering audio system. It won Top Expert awards from both the International Auto Sound Challenge Association (IASCA) and the United States Auto Sound Competition International (USACi), as well as awards for lighting and design from the Mobile Electronics Competition Association (MECA). Most recently, Jason partnered with Sony on another Honda, this time a 2005 Civic Si. At its first trip to the SEMA show in Las Vegas in 2007, the new Civic earned Jason 14 magazine covers, and top awards for sound quality, body work, and unique design. Jason is currently running a full-scale audio/video installation shop that provides car audio services as well as home theater design. With his current car projects, Jason is developing new techniques for integrating Web 2.0 devices for mobile audio/video systems. He has written numerous how-to articles for Car Audio and Electronics magazine. jasonsyner.com

Synopsis:

It used to be simple: Slap a receiver/tape-deck/amplifier combo unit into the dash, cut out a couple of holes in the door cards, string some wires, and presto! You had a stereo in your car. Now, if you’re installing up-to-date mobile electronic systems, you could be putting in an iPod adapter, satellite radio, GPS, video, radar detector, alarm, or a remote starter, to name just a few options. This book is an expert, easy-to-follow guide to the whole new world of mobile electronics--from choosing wires and connectors to construction materials to component placement. Whatever your need, your interest, or your equipment, How to Install Automotive Mobile Electronics will help you every step of the way.
