While many mobile enhancement retailers use custom fabrication to enhance cosmetics, Street Smart Automotive Solutions in Flowood focuses on improving performance. While we most certainly appreciate unique and creative designs in an amp rack, subwoofer enclosure or door panel, we address those criteria only after we ensure that the speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers we install are optimized for reliability and functionality.
Proper Integration Is Our Mantra
Once our audio consultation is complete, our team sets to work engineering suitable upgrades to meet your goals. Each component mounting location is considered for safety, reliability and performance. How we will run wires and cables, and the way we make electrical connections, is scrutinized, planned and detailed. We use custom woodworking and metal fabrication skills to create mounting brackets that use factory fastener locations. In most cases, a vehicle upgraded by Street Smart can be returned to original at the end of a lease with no evidence of it having had a custom audio system.
Custom Fabrication Enhances Performance
Consider the task of integrating a set of upgraded door speakers. Where some shops will sell you the most expensive speaker set you can afford, then skimp on sound deadening and mounting adapter quality, our team takes a balanced approach.
We know that a properly deadened door panel will dramatically improve the mid- and low-frequency performance of any speaker. We measure, design and create mounting adapters using our laser or new CNC router, ensuring that the speakers are affixed securely. We finish the installation with a gasket that seals the speaker to the door trim panel. The result is greater efficiency from the speaker, reduced distortion and increased longevity.
Invest in Reliability
Another example of the Street Smart philosophy is demonstrated in how we mount amplifiers and signal processors in vehicles. If you purchase a subwoofer system from the typical car stereo shop, they may mount the amplifier to the woofer enclosure. This location saves them time during the installation. Unfortunately, this quick-and-dirty process exposes the amplifier to intense vibrations that can cause damage.
We create a custom mounting bracket that places your amplifier (or a signal processor) under the driver or passenger seat. The product is raised off the floor so it won’t get wet, and we ensure that defroster vents are unrestricted. It might take an extra hour of labor to install your amp this way, but we know the investment is worthwhile to keep your system functioning reliably. We prefer to do each task once and do it properly, as opposed to taking shortcuts that could lead to repairs or component replacement.
