EVERY trucker on the East Coast was at this year’s Florida Truck Meet (FTM)! So you know #TEAMDS18 had to show up whipping the LOUDEST trucks Miami had to offer!

We just started blazing trails in the truck audio industry: but believe me, the trucking community has never missed out on the LOUD! That’s why when the organizers told us to curate the audio of the event we jumped at the opportunity!

The FTM Truck Show

The FTM Truck Show was probably the BEST truck show we’ve been to so far: truck audio enthusiasts from all walks of life were celebrating their passion for these beefy vehicles. If you love trucks this is the perfect place to connect with fellow enthusiasts and learn a little more about the scene. From classic trucks to custom-built monsters, there were builds of every kind at this show.

Seeing as how we’re at the forefront of audio in every scene – we only thought it was right to make FTM LOUD! Don’t get me wrong, we are still in love with All Things Car Audio: but, there’s something about a truck that’s BIG and LOUD that we just can’t deny. That’s why we bought out the 6x6 Gladiator – then made it flex right in front of our tents and trailer. And gave space to some of the fans to showcase their own builds.

Amplifying FTM

Every show we go ALL OUT to make our presence known, and FTM was no different!

We had two vendor rows on the West Side right next to the VIP Truck Parking Lot – whenever a car came in we would Get LOUD to soundtrack their entrance. Some of the people were turned off by it, but as THE ONLY AUDIO BRAND and OFFICIAL AUDIO SPONSOR of the event – it wouldn’t make sense to be quiet.

As the audio sponsor we had the chance to DJ the BURNOUT WARS: in between the smoke clouds rolling off the trembling asphalt, we were blasting music that kept the crowd engaged the whole time! 

DS18's sound systems: Build spotlight

We didn’t get a chance to host the LOUDEST Truck Competition since we were pressed on time – but, the FTM attendees came to get LOUD regardless.

Of the attendees who showed up, there was one that stood out and above the rest (literally!)

When this semi-truck pulled into the lot, I thought he was dropping off more equipment for The Burnout Wars – but to my surprise it was a tried and true member of the LOUD Crowd!

DS18 PRO-EXL68 6.5" Mid-Range Loudspeaker 600W @ 8-Ohm

Nestled within a colossal custom enclosure inside a towering semi-truck, I stumbled upon our PRO-EXL68.

This 6.5" Mid-Range Loudspeaker redefines LOUD, especially in semi-truck cabins, handling a staggering 600W at 8-Ohm. The PRO-EXL68 delivers impeccably clean and thunderously loud midrange, mid-bass, and vocal frequencies, setting a new standard in its class.

Featuring a frequency response of 100Hz-12.5KHz and a sensitivity of 92dB, every nuance of the music comes alive with clarity and intensity.

If you’re starting a truck build – the PRO-EXL68 is the speaker for you!

DS18 PRO-TWN4 3" High Compression Neodymium Hybrid Driver/Tweeter 280W 1" Pen 4-Ohm VC

This 3" High Compression Neodymium Hybrid Driver/Tweeter is a powerhouse! Featuring a robust 1" voice coil capable of handling an impressive 280W MAX.

But power is just the beginning – versatility is where the PRO-TWN4 truly shines. With a sensitivity rating of 105 dB, these tweeters blast out incredible loudness even at lower power levels, filling ANY VEHICLE with immersive audio without the need for excessive amplification.

If you're ready to elevate your audio game to new heights, unleash the power of the PRO-TWN4 in your build.

The East Coast has become a hotbed of truck audio talent, with enthusiasts constantly striving to outdo one another and create the LOUDEST audio setups. Although we didn’t get a chance to host a competition this time – we will be back soon to see who truly is the LOUDEST!
