Audiobahn, 2011 Models Announced in brand re-boot
The Brand. The Lifestyle. The Legend.
The road to building a successful car audio company like Audiobahn is never easy. When you combine an unyielding dream, the aspiration to succeed, and the vision to manufacture car audio equipment that could literally blow the top off a car, you’ve got a brand that’s in for an unpredictable ride.
Stepping into a world of uncertainty is exactly what took place back in 1997 when Audiobahn was first introduced to the mobile entertainment industry. We simply wanted to produce cutting-edge car audio equipment that we would be proud of. Little did we know that our simple end goal would later become the industry leader in innovative car audio technology and award-winning design. Our vision not only turned us into the world’s most respected name in the industry, Audiobahn also became a lifestyle phenomenon in the car audio entertainment category.
