STILLWATER, USA – This weekend KICKER® Audio will sponsor the Lone Star Throwdown (LST) for the sixth straight year. The show will take place Feb 26-28 at the Lone Star Expo Center in Conroe, Texas, and though KICKER will not have the physical presence it once had, the brand will still be represented by award-winning show trucks.

A past “Top 100” award winner, KICKER’s own Tim Smith will take his custom 1994 Chevy C1500 to the show. A member of KICKER’s Special Projects team, Smith runs a pair of KICKER IQ1000.5 5-channel amplifiers, KICKER Q-Class component speakers and KICKER CompRT® slim subwoofers as the cornerstone of his system.

On behalf of KICKER, LST promoters will offer credit of up to $2000 in KICKER audio equipment to a pair of lucky winners as part of show prize giveaways.

“One system always goes to the person that gets the ‘Hard-Luck Award’,” said Jarrod Dunahoo, one of the Showdown organizers. “The other system, in our travels throughout the weekend, we try to find a vehicle that could actually use a system. We call that the ‘Promoter’s Pick’.”

During the 10th anniversary of the popular show, more than 2,000 show cars have already pre-registered. LST officials anticipate attendance exceeding 15,000 people this year, with Top 100 and Best-of-Show awards being presented, along with a number of other cash prizes.
