In the world of automotive legends, the Chevy Corvette Stingray holds a special place. A true icon of the roads, this classic beauty recently embarked on a transformative journey at our shop, where it was infused with modern innovations while preserving its timeless allure. As the engine roared and the wheels turned, the Corvette Stingray underwent a series of upgrades, from an Alpine head unit to custom speakers, a powerful amp, and a host of thoughtful additions. This article unveils the story of how a vintage masterpiece was seamlessly blended with cutting-edge technology.
Modernizing the Interior
The heart of this classic was revived with modern technology as the iLX-507 Alpine head unit was seamlessly integrated. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto breathed new life into the Corvette’s dashboard, providing connectivity and entertainment at the touch of a button. The experience was further elevated with the addition of the HCE-C114 Alpine rear camera, offering a modern safety feature without compromising the car’s aesthetics.
A Symphony of Sound
The transformation extended to the auditory realm, with the introduction of X-Series 6.5″ speakers that were ingeniously housed within custom-fabricated kick panels. The challenge of redesigning the kick panels was met with precision, ensuring that the speakers not only fit seamlessly but also enhanced the car’s interior aesthetics. The audio journey continued with the addition of R-Series 6×9″ speakers, delivering a full spectrum of sound.
Amplifiers and Subwoofers
The modernization included the X-Series 5 channel amp, which not only integrated seamlessly but also ensured that every note was delivered with precision. The heartbeat of the sound system was the R-Series 10″ subwoofer, housed in a custom matte black enclosure that exuded sophistication. A custom trim panel added a touch of personalization.

The journey of modernizing the Classic Chevy Corvette Stingray is a celebration of innovation. It’s a testament to the fact that technology and design can coexist to create an automotive masterpiece that resonates with both nostalgia and modern sensibilities. As this revitalized classic takes to the roads, it does so as a beacon of automotive excellence, proving that some legends only get better with time.
Alpine R-Series Subwoofers: Setting the Stage for Sonic Brilliance
To infuse the Challenger’s interior with heart-pounding audio, we turned to the Alpine R-Series 10-inch subwoofers. Renowned for their exceptional sound quality and performance, these subwoofers are designed to reproduce deep, impactful bass that adds a new dimension to the listening experience.
The choice of the Alpine R-Series was not just about enhancing the bass; it was about creating a symphony that resonates perfectly with the car’s character. These subwoofers excel in delivering accurate and clear bass notes, ensuring that the music remains detailed and dynamic even at high volumes.

Crafting Excellence: Custom Subwoofer Enclosure
To harness the full potential of the Alpine R-Series subwoofers, we embarked on the creation of a custom-fitted and built subwoofer enclosure. This step was crucial to achieving the best possible audio performance while maintaining the Challenger’s interior aesthetics.
- Design and Measurements: Our team meticulously measured the available space in the trunk and carefully designed an enclosure that optimized both air volume and subwoofer positioning. The enclosure’s design was not only functional but also tailored to blend seamlessly with the Challenger’s interior design.
- Precision Fabrication: Crafting the enclosure required precision fabrication to ensure a perfect fit. We used high-quality materials that not only enhanced audio quality but also ensured the enclosure’s durability and longevity.
- Integration and Aesthetics: The custom enclosure was designed to look like an integral part of the trunk, showcasing our commitment to preserving the Challenger’s visual appeal. It seamlessly merged with the existing design, proving that audio enhancements can be both impressive and subtle.

The Sonic Symphony Unleashed
Once the Alpine R-Series subwoofers and custom enclosure were seamlessly integrated into the purple Dodge Challenger, it was time for the moment of truth. With the audio system calibrated and tuned to perfection, the Challenger’s interior was transformed into an acoustic wonderland. The deep, resonant bass notes combined with the powerful engine’s roar, creating a symphony that resonated not only in the ears but in the soul of the driver.

Next Level is excited to showcase a recent project featuring a Release 21 fishing boat customized with SeaDek® in the colors: moonrock over storm grey.
SeaDek® is a popular marine flooring option due to its durability and comfort, and it’s fully customizable to fit any boater’s style. For this project, the Next Level team worked closely with the owner to select a unique color combination of moonrock over storm grey. The result is a sleek and modern look that perfectly complements the Release 21’s design.
In addition to its aesthetics, SeaDek® provides exceptional traction when wet or dry, ensuring safety while on board. Its shock-absorbing qualities also provide maximum comfort for anglers spending long days on the water. And unlike traditional marine carpet or molded-in non-skid, SeaDek® is made from UV-resistant closed-cell PE/EVA foam that won’t absorb water, making it an ideal choice for any fishing boat.

And with a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures available, the possibilities for customization are endless. Trust the experts at Next Level to help you create the perfect look for your boat.

If you’re looking to upgrade your boat with a durable and stylish flooring solution, look no further than SeaDek®. Recently, we had the pleasure of customizing a Regal 28 Express boat called The Bryson’s with SeaDek® flooring.
SeaDek® is a superior alternative to marine carpets and traditional molded-in non-skid. It’s designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the marine environment and is made from UV-resistant closed-cell PE/EVA foam that will not absorb water. This means that it’s incredibly easy to clean and maintain and won’t deteriorate or mildew over time.
One of the key features of SeaDek® is its exceptional traction, which is just as good when wet as it is when dry. This makes it a safer option for boaters, particularly those who are fishing or engaging in other activities that require sure footing. In addition, SeaDek®’s shock-absorbing qualities deliver maximum comfort on the water, which is especially important for those who spend long days out on the boat
Perhaps best of all, SeaDek® is fully customizable, and can be tailored to fit the exact dimensions of your boat’s flooring. This means that you can choose from a wide variety of colors, patterns, and textures to create a truly unique look that complements your boat’s style.

Next Level is proud to present our latest project, the customization of a Defender ‘Lone Star’ that is sure to turn heads. Our team of expert technicians worked tirelessly to give this vehicle an incredible facelift, both inside and out. Here’s a closer look at what we did.
One of the biggest upgrades we made to the Defender ‘Lone Star’ was the installation of new JL Audio speakers and subwoofers. This system is designed to deliver crystal-clear sound with deep bass that will blow you away. To give the vehicle’s interior a sleek and modern look, we customized it with new SeaDek Marine Products®. This not only looks great, but it also adds an extra layer of protection to the vehicle’s surfaces.
We also upgraded the vehicle’s lighting kit to make it street legal, complete with turn signals. This not only makes it safer to drive on public roads, but it also adds a unique touch to the vehicle’s appearance.
We installed new custom bumpers on both the front and rear of the vehicle. These not only look great, but they also offer added protection.
The new winch added to the vehicle makes it even more capable off-road. This is perfect for anyone who likes to take their vehicle off the beaten path and explore the great outdoors.
Finally, we upgraded the vehicle’s wheels and tires with new Raceline Wheels and Toyo Tires to give the vehicle a more aggressive look while providing better traction and handling in off-road conditions. Overall, we are extremely proud of the work we did on this Defender ‘Lone Star’ and we’re confident that our customer will love the end result!
