Without further ado, let’s introduce the remaining family members… (drum roll please!)

This is the speaker set, and it comes in four pieces- two pieces for the front door and two more for the back seat. No screwing around literally, just unplug your existing stock speakers and plug these monsters in, turn up the volume and you’ll be wrecking havoc in the neighborhood.

All connectors has been designed with ‘compatibility’ in mind, which means you literally just need to plug-and-play these speakers into your existing wirings.

And how can this Camry ‘full suite’ be complete without sound proofing elements? These specifically Camry-tailored sound proofing materials are ready to be applied right out of the box, covering any ‘loopholes’ in your Camry that could interrupt the maestro in the orchestra. Tips: These are very sticky, so handle with extra care.

The family potrait, minus the sound proofing members (just not enough space to get everyone on stage!).

Nevertheless, it was literally an aromatic presentation with one of 12V’s best-selling products- the California Scents Organic Air Fresheners.

Ms Eliza said that she could only restock these air fresheners whenever she drops by Jakarta. Now that 12V brings these products all the way from US, more Malaysians drivers will now be able to enjoy air fresheners that is spillproof, organically healthy and friendly to the planet.
