In an email to Vince Lombard chronicled their journey:

Monday– Travel day for me. Flew into Atlanta from Los Angeles.Tuesday Morning – Training for Vickers Audio and Video in Atlanta.

I covered the new Murdered Out series of products. This series includes our new flat Black Class D and A/B Mosfet amplifiers, which feature more compact mounting footprints, Cobalt Blue Illumination, and ISO-Ventilation Cooling System. The Series also has a Flat Black, shallow mount subwoofer that comes in 8”, 10”, 12” sizes. These subwoofers feature dual 4 Ohm voice coils, patented Lug-Lock terminals, and a texture injected poly cone with an embossed Audiobahn logo to help prevent distortion. The Murdered Out Series also has a complete collection of speakers including two component speakers systems, and co-axial speaker systems in all of the most popular mounting configurations. Finally, the Murdered Out series also has two complete party packages: a 1200 Watt dual 10” package and a 1600 Watt dual 12” package.

The sales team at Vickers was super receptive to the new products and offered their own unique perspectives on what it was going to take to be successful with the Audiobahn brand in their territory.
