Installing a sound system...in a Fisher-Price Power Wheels

This Cadillac Escalade is so tiny, yet so thumpin'

You've seen them: small, rugged, rumbling over driveway and lawn, usually driven with careless flair by someone under six. What you probably haven't seen (or heard) as often is one with a killer sound system.

One brilliant Fisher-Price® Power Wheels® owner decided to change all that. He brought his trusty mini Cadillac Escalade into our install bay and we got to work. The end result speaks for itself. 

Upgraded audio for the serious driver

For the installation, we used a discontinued Kenwood marine-rated receiver (if you'd like to try this at home, the replacement model is the Kenwood KMR-M315BT). For the speakers, we added Polk Audio DB651s 6.5" speakers; they're shallow-mount and marine-rated, which is helpful because they're positioned to pretty much catch any stray drop of rain. This wasn't a perfect fit  we had to do some modifications to get everything in there just so. But the end result is totally going to make that kid the envy of everyone else at the bus stop.

This was one customer's dream come true — better sound in their Escalade to make them the boss of the block!

    And how long does the truck run in high gear, grass, and slight hilly terrain while blasting "The Wheels on the Bus"?

    This type of power wheel is ran off of a rechargeable 12 volt battery, I actually did the same thing to my daughter's Barbie Jeep, same results, she loves it...
