The system in Tim Jones' 1987 Ford Thunderbird begins with the Kenwood KDC-4007 CD receiver. The signal then travels to the AudioControl Epicenter — a digital bass maximizer designed to get the most out of your amp/woofer/enclosure combination. The Epicenter's remote control is mounted in the center console next to the power seat controls. Next, the frequency range is divided by the Coustic XM-3 crossover.

The low frequencies (below 80 Hz) are routed to the Coustic Power Logic 360 amp which powers a Kenwood BP210 bandpass box (with two 10" woofers). Tim installed Boston Acoustics CX3 3-1/2" speakers in the dash and CX8 5"x7" speakers on the rear deck. He mounted the woofers from the Kenwood KFC-P502 component system in the doors — the Kenwood tweeters were custom-installed in the sail panels (mirror covers) on the doors. The Clarion 2103G amplifier (with high-pass crossover set around 400 Hz) powers the tweeters and the CX3s, while a Carver M240 amp pushes everything above 180 Hz to the CX8s and the Kenwood 5-1/4" woofers.

Tim and his uncle did all the body work on the T-Bird. All handles, locks, and emblems have been removed (with the exception of the bird on the nose) — the doors are unlocked and opened by remote control. They conceived and executed the stunning, tangerine-colored paint job.
