LIS Audio June Feature – The Eddy’s Acura RL Build

Denny Eddy’s Show Ready

Acura RL!

When it comes to late model luxury imports with a hint of lowrider, Denny’s 1998 Acura RL is at the top of the charts. Especially as a daily driver! LIS Audio has helped this vehicle transform and there is still more to come. Check out what we are currently up to as Part 2 begins with the RL!

   The Eddy’s brought the Acura to us to have the system and trunk finished for the summer car show season. The car appeared at the 2nd annual KC Showdown car truck & bike show that Denny and Jenifer Eddy, plus friends and family, organized and put together at the T-Bones Stadium at The Legends. LIS Audio was proud to sponsor the show! It had such a huge turn out everyone is super excited for next year!!

   Denny wanted to switch up his audio components over to Audio Dynamics, which is our premier brand so we were all for it. We added a set of 2100 Series component speakers to the front and 2100 coaxial speakers to the rear doors, powered them off a 60.4 channel amplifier and 2 15” 3000 Series subwoofers powered of a 1200.1 Premium series amplifier. This system is a major improvement upon what was last in and as Denny wanted it all to match.

   We built custom speaker pods for the front and rear doors to hold the speakers with accent rings and custom pressed meshed grilles to protect the speakers. While the doors were off we swapped out some of the inserts wrapped in black vinyl for the matching green on the pods and black suede on the others. We also wrapped some of the interior wood grained pieces in black suede to flow with the rest of the system.

   The custom box had recently been built and installed into the trunk by another installer, but Denny wanted LIS to put our touch on dressing it. We decided to hang the amplifiers on each side of the wheel wells to get them tucked up neatly out of the way. After wrapping the sub enclosure and adding the new subs, we built a dress piece that can lay around the subwoofer enclosure. This really brought it all together!

    We also added a full custom underglow LED kit and some lights to accent the custom work we did to the doors and in the trunk. We also added a Compustar alarm system to protect all of Dennys new goodies. The Acura had previously been wrapped in a full body wrap and is currently painted with a full custom paint job including pin striping and subtle watermarks on the runners. The wheels were custom painted as well to match the cars new paint job and it looks so much cleaner than the previously vinyl wrapped exterior.

We added some single color LEDs to the build as well as a color changing Underglow kit. The video below will show how the Underglow kit works on the vehicle from the remote. We added a basic 4-button ArcticStart alarm system to help protect all the new audio we just added! Denny will be back into the shop with the RL to do more work very soon.
