6th Avenue Electronics
6th Avenue Electronics is a 10 store audio/video and car electronics specialty retailer. We�ve been in business since 1984 and we focus very much on both custom home theater and custom car audio installations. In the car audio side we do everything in house from full fabrication to bodywork all kinds of metal fabrication and full upholstery work. This makes us a PREMIER destination for any customer looking to trick out their cars.
Our entry into the Pioneer Sound Build-Off competition was a 2004 Chrysler Crossfire. The build took exactly three weeks to build from start to finish (this included all body and paint work). There are four team members to credit for their involvement on this build: Don Barros, Antonio Monteiro, Guido Pedraza, and Andres Moreno.
The most difficult aspect of this custom built was having to fabricate everything for this car from scratch since there are no aftermarket parts available for it, but the biggest hurdle was the time. The entire car was stripped down to bare metal. Two layers of Dynamat extreme were used plus stinger wire, connection blocks, and batteries. All metal racks were welded into the car for safety. The leather interior is from Porsche and all upholstery, bodywork and complete fabrication was done in house. The concept was to build a car that will turn heads yet look and sound like nothing else we�ve ever seen out there in the industry. I feel we�ve accomplished that perfectly.
