August 5th was an exciting day at Mobile Edge. This was the day that the guys from Elettromedia (the company that owns the Hertz and Audison brands) arrived to Install our display boards. Ken Wiseman and Larry Frederick, 2 legends in the car audio industry, arrived at 8:30 am to begin the install. Along with our longtime rep and friend, Russ DePilis, the crew spent the entire day at our store setting up our new boards.
We decided to go with one our their “Big” boards and their smaller Mille display. The Big board allows for the demonstration of 5 pair of speakers, 4 subs and 6 amplifiers. The Mille display is for just one pair of speakers and one amp. It’s purpose is to show the ultimate speakers available for a vehicle.
We had all of the speakers installed by lunch and the amplifiers were in place by about 4 pm (I didn’t know that Russ was so adept with a screw gun!). After the subs were in, Larry tuned the systems to ensure that everything was working to its maximum potential. All I can say is WOW!!! This is the best sounding equipment I have ever heard for a car! No comparison. No close seconds! This stuff blows everything else away! The Hertz Mille MLK2 6.5″ component speakers are not like any I have ever heard. When they first turned them on, I found myself thinking that they had stuffed a subwoofer inside of the display. Aside from sounding incredibly detailed, they put out a LOT of low bass.You really have to hear it for yourself!
After the install was completed, Larry spent a few hours training Kyle, Bob and myself. It was a very technical training, but Larry explained everything in a way that was easy to understand and extremely fun! Larry dispelled a lot of myths and hammered to point home with his trademark “bullsh&t!” button. This was the best technical training that I have ever had.
And after working all day long (until nearly 9:30 pm), Larry, Ken and Russ treated Kyle, Bob and I to dinner and drinks. Elettromedia, the products and the people are first class all of the way. I learned a long time ago that it is important to pick you business partners carefully. Larry, Ken and Russ are stellar examples of the way all vendors should interact with their dealers. I am truly lucky to be able to deal with this group.
I am also extremely lucky to have been selected to carry Hertz and Audison: The 2 best car audio brands anywhere in the world.
Please stop in and audition these speakers and amps. You are sure to be impressed.
