A customer came in with her VW Beetle telling us of a group that she hangs out with and how she wanted to impress them with a next-level stereo out of her little car. We were very excited to get started building out a custom stereo that would make her friend’s jaw be found on the floor.
To make this a great sounding stereo, we needed to install professional speakers in the doors replacing the existing stock equipment. This required a 3-way active component set in the doors which means each speaker is powered by the amp individually. Our stereo professionals installed Mmatts Pro Audio speakers in each door with a mix of other brands and we fabricated a custom door panel for the speakers. The top speaker is a bullet, the others are a 6.5″ and an 8″.
2 JL Audio 12″ subwoofers were installed in a custom fabricated box in the trunk. A single JL amp was installed just for the subs, another JL amp was installed just for the door speakers, and an Alpine sound processor was installed to give the right power and sound combination for all types of music. These subwoofers need a break-in period to ensure quality sound and for components to stretch their legs.
It’s called a “break-in period” that we educated owners on and you may read elsewhere that it is not required, but our experience with car audio shows us that we suggest this with any high-level subwoofer.
We tell customers, “Don’t blast the stereo for one week, then come back in and we will tune the sound processor to handle the volume you desire to impress.”
LED lights and a switch were the last things to be installed.

This Ford Gran Torino came to Next Level for a new upgraded stereo and window tint.
It seems Ford Gran Torinos have star quality. A beautiful 72 even had the title role in a major motion picture. But before Clint Eastwoods Gran Torino, there was Starsky & Hutch; starring what has arguably become one of the most recognized cars in America. Ford built a limited run of 1000 special edition Gran Torinos in the spring of 1976, of which about 300 are still known to exist.
We custom fabricated a trunk subwoofer box, door speaker grills and made them look like it was from factory in the 1970s. We installed a Pioneer radio in the dash and used MMats Pro Audio for the door speakers, the rear deck speakers and the trunk subwoofer.
