Whether it’s a GTR engine transplant, or the base for the world’s most powerful sound system, Nissan Juke is the car the Japanese car maker choose to mess with. Maybe that’s because it looks funny and doing weird stuff to it kinda make sense! Anyhow, this is a joint project between Nissan and Ministry of Sound, and it’s called the Juke Box. Clever, eh?
As mentioned they’ve fitted this car with the world’s most powerful sound system, which they say is louder than a jumbo jet in take-off. The technical work has been done by Martin Audio, who also designed and built the ‘Box’ sound system in the famous London-based nightclub. They’ve come up with a 150 decibel, 18,900W sound system, which is completely self-sufficient in terms of power and production.
The system features a custom-built 19 kilowatt rig, a set of custom made cabinets and enclosures housing two 18″ powered sub units and the same Mid Hi enclosures that are used at Ministry of Sound. Also included is an integrated radio studio.
And where they decided the car should make its debut? In the drivers’ parade at the start of the world famous Le Mans 24 hours endurance race. Le Mans is a bit too serious an event for such a thing. It should have been at the Nurburgring 24 hours where all the sick parties happen!
After its debut, the Juke Box embarks on a summer tour across Europe, a six month radio partnership will be launched after Le Mans with the “Nissan Juke Box Sessions” being broadcast on Ministry of Sound’s Digital Radio channel every fortnight on Mondays from 5pm to 7pm GMT.
