CES Success- The 2018 Consumer Electronics Show
If you’re into car audio innovations or other new technology announcements, then you know about the Consumer Electronics Show. Each year in early January, CES is held in Las Vegas, attracting manufacturers, buyers, media, and even celebrities to check out all the new products. In a world where the newest tech gadgets are always sought after, mobile electronics manufacturers erect huge displays to attract as much attention as they can to their new offerings.
We stopped by the Kicker Audio booth, where a Chevrolet Colorado was being used to demonstrate a GM performance audio install. This Chevy also had a Napier truck tent in the bed and a portable Bullfrog wireless speaker for those of you who like camping or have to live in your truck when you spend too much on parts. Kicker also has many other vehicle-specific solutions available for upgrading the tunes in your newer-model truck.
Across the aisle, JVC had a Ford Transit Connect laid out and several displays showing off the company’s multimedia products. Another SUV, this time a two-door Tahoe, had a sizable crowd buzzing around it, including former NFL player Terrell Owens, who took a few minutes to sit down inside and listen to the PowerBass gear installed.
One product that generated a lot of buzz was the new Alpine Halo 9, a 9-inch LCD head unit with a floating design—perfect for consumers who do not have enough space for a double-DIN in-dash and do not want to do a custom install.
As with years past, the 2018 CES included many innovations in the tech industry, including all kinds of concept vehicles, thought-provoking ideas, and plenty of new merchandise to be used inside or outside your vehicle. For more information, visit ces.tech.
