Written by Dave MacKinnon | Photos by 20Hz Audio Sound and Security

The PASMAG Scion tC audio build is done, but before we show you what we did to the rest of the car, we’re going to tease you with a step-by-stop of how the entertainment system came to fruition. A shout out to Frank ‘Crazy’ Valenti and the crew at 20Hz Audio Video and Security for the work and to Sony and Stinger for the product support.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the final pics – we’re saving those for a full feature coming soon!
