JVC makes it easy to dial in just the right look for your dash — their new 5-zone variable-color illumination puts thousands of color combinations at your fingertips. Certain JVC receivers let you adjust any of the five distinct zones on the face to your liking, for a custom look that'll match your car's interior or your sense of style. And you can even have selected zones change color with your volume adjustments.
Zak Billmeier grew up in southern Vermont and coastal Maine. After graduating from Mary Washington College with a Geography degree he still isn't sure quite what to do with, he eventually settled in the mountains of Central Virginia. He spends his free time chasing his daughter around, taking pictures, gardening and cooking. Zak traces the roots of his interest in electronic gadgets to the Casio wristwatch with a built-in calculator he received as a gift one year as a child. He joined Crutchfield's car A/V team in 2007.
