2013 CES Car Audio Systems - Kicker, MTX, Rydeen and JVC


Las Vegas, NV (W&HM) - At the 2013 CES, Audio systems for cars had a very strong presence at the show.  All vendors were trying to out-impress the attendees with all kinds of gadgets and gimmicks.

Kicker's eye catching array of speakers on a golf cart seems to be a perfect combination for a neighborhood party, or a PA system in case of an Alien invasion.

 
The retro 40's/50's car audio with torpedo like speaker systems (perhaps) makes it a very unique piece of display.
   

MTX Audio's works are super big!  It takes a flatbed to host the gigantic speaker, not to mention there were tow more big ones inside the cab.
 
 
 
 
Rydeen took a more gentle approach to their display.
 
JVC takes an even more gentler, almost clinical approach to their booth presentation.

2013 CES Lexus Integrated Safety Demo Car (Pictorial)


Las Vegas, NV (Py) - The 2013 CES show has a strong showing of the mobile and car innovations.  As most analysts predicted the year 2013 to be the mobile year, many vendors put up their mobile solutions, products, ideas and many of them have great linkage to the applications on cars and car accessories.

Here we start with the traditional car maker Lexus.  They demonstrated their integrated safety system with all the sensors and mechanism in this highly staged platform.  They sure look great and would be awesome to test them someday.
