Opus Marketing, Kicker’s manufacturer rep firm in the territory, worked the OC Jeep Week event along side area retailer Exotic Sound and Tint. Opus Marketing’s Jamie White stated, “The OC Jeep Week event was probably the busiest show we have ever worked. Kerry Thomas and the Exotic Sound crew had a big tent set up with lots of Kicker specials and installations on site. Even though they had a lot of stock at the event they ran out of some models on Friday. We placed a big Kicker on Friday for Saturday delivery. When it arrived the last of the on-site installations were made.”

Thomas related, “Jeep owners love their rides and add a lot of aftermarket products. They turned out in big numbers at OC Jeep Week and we made a ton of sales and installations on site. On Friday alone we did 15 Kicker system installations. Going forward installations are booked out for weeks at Exotic Tint from OC Jeep Week.”
