Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“How To Install Automotive Mobile Electronic Systems does an excellent job of covering all the basic things a do-it-yourselfer should know about installing audio systems, amplifiers, speakers, auxiliary batteries, GPS units, BlueTooth connections for Ipods and cell phones. The book is richly illustrated with high quality color photos, and each one of these photos is certainly worth a thousand words. Installing aftermarket audio systems and other electronic gadgets is not the simple job it once was, so I would highly recommend reading this book to find out how a real professional does it.” – www.AA1Car.com

Library Journal
First-time author Syner uses his working experience to present an overview of car electrical systems with an ease that belies the complexity of the topic. A number of popular add-ons include GPS, hands-free devices, and rearview cameras. Audio projects eventually require some fabrication, and Syner provides no instruction on working with fiberglass. While the projects are great, this is only for the confident car enthusiast with a fully equipped shop.

His 1995 Honda Civic, an artistic sculpture of flowing fiberglass and extreme paint, contained 11 Sony XPLOD amps, 10 Sony television monitors, and a thundering audio system. It won Top Expert awards from both the International Auto Sound Challenge Association (IASCA) and the United States Auto Sound Competition International (USACi), as well as awards for lighting and design from the Mobile Electronics Competition Association (MECA). Most recently, Jason partnered with Sony on another Honda, this time a 2005 Civic Si. At its first trip to the SEMA show in Las Vegas in 2007, the new Civic earned Jason 14 magazine covers, and top awards for sound quality, body work, and unique design. Jason is currently running a full-scale audio/video installation shop that provides car audio services as well as home theater design. With his current car projects, Jason is developing new techniques for integrating Web 2.0 devices for mobile audio/video systems.
