LIS Audio gives the Super Cobra a Facelift!
November 5, 2018 – LIS Audio took on the task of performing a full Audio Dynamics build (LIS Audio Signature Build) in the trunk of Jc Fisher’s 2011 Ford Mustang GT, which Retrobuilt Motors out of Nixa Missouri, transformed into a 1967 Shelby Cobra “Eleanor” as a nod to the Gone In 60 Seconds version of the vehicle.
“Best Audio guys you will find in KC! Custom anything! The boys do Lighting, amps, speakers, hushmat, auto start, back up cams... and anything else you could possibly need or want! They’re fast, friendly and affordable. Don’t waste your time going anywhere else!” -Jc Fisher’s Five Star Review on Facebook
Jc Fisher, a singer in The Texas Tenors and owner of the Shelby Cobra prototype, reached out to LIS Audio to have custom work performed on the trunk to match the vehicles current level of custom fabrication and show quality. The full installation and fabrication performed by Cameron “Chimpo” Powell and Justice “JAX” Berry, the Co-owners of the LIS Audio workshop.
Our main goal was to create a high end audio system and blend the aesthetics of the cabin interior into the trunk build, which is why we incorporated the brushed aluminum and ultra leather materials into the build. We decided to add Hushmat sound deadener to help reduce road noise and vibrations. Since the car travels so far and so often we added front and rear recording cameras to catch all the excitement on the road!
The first time LIS Audio performed work on the Retrobuilt Shelby Cobra, also referred to as RSC-GT, was in 2017 to prepare it for the Specialist Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show as to be displayed in the Maxxonics car audio company booth. The second time around we decided to use different product and rebuild all of the accent pieces in the trunk. LIS Audio is known in the Kansas City area for putting out high quality custom car audio fabrication work and showing that we care about our clients first and foremost.
The products featured are AudioControl LC2i, two sets of Audio Dynamics 3200 series component speakers, a 6-channel 1500W Premium series amplifier, two 10 inch 1100 series subwoofers and Hushmat throughout the vehicle. The components speaker sets are in a pair of custom fabricated LIS Audio door panel pods with the tweets in the factory 5"X7" speakers location. The two subwoofers are in Audio Dynamics Acoustical Engineered enclosures that were tuned and built specifically for this single application.
We also added a custom LIS Audio LED lighting kit to illuminate the trunk accents and the beautifully assembled engine bay. A couple more added touches include the custom rear deck perforation for added cabin bass and the "Super Cobra" dress panel above the trunk opening. You can also see we added removable magnet shelves to display cars and merchandise when at events!
Besides the ridiculous show quality audio system the RSC-GT Mustang has some crazy mechanical modifications as well! This includes the Procharger D-2SC Intercooled system, Bosch ID1000 Injectors, Kooks long tube exhaust & headers, Cervini side exhaust, Diablo ECU tune and 150 shot Nitrous Oxide Systems with front end purge valve. The Mustang floats across the ground with a huge frightening roar on a set of custom build Shelby Cobra American Racing five spoked wheels, 18" on the front with 20" on the rear. She has stance!
This Retrobuilt Shelby Cobra was the first to ever be built in the world, so it needed to have caring and knowledgeable hands on it for the full custom audio installation process. This is why Jc Fisher brought it to LIS Audio which was voted for 2018 Top Retailer of the Year and 2018 Top Installer of the Year in North America. Now that the audio system is complete the Cobra stands out light years ahead of the competition! This Eleanor a head turner through and through!
