Ministry of Sound Teams With Martin Audio For Innovative Nissan Juke Box

Nissan and Ministry of Sound recently introduced the Juke Box, a breakthrough automotive design with one of the best nightclub sound systems in the world, capable of producing up to 150dB.

The Juke Box sound system was engineered by Martin Audio, also responsible for creating the current iteration of the world-renowned Box Room at Ministry of Sound in London. The Box is a five-sided room within a room completely insulated and suspended from the outside wall that is considered to be acoustically perfect and one of the best sound systems in the world.

Nissan and Ministry of Sound turned to Martin Audio to create a totally self-sufficient 18,900W sound system for the Juke Box. A set of custom made cabinets and enclosures housing two 18” powered subs and the same Mid Hi enclosures used at MoS enable an exceptionally high output with no compromise in sound quality. All of the custom speaker housings were designed to fit into the back of the Juke around the chassis and framework of the innovative crossover model.

Discussing the Juke Box project, Martin Audio Research & Development Director Jason Baird said, “When we got the phone call from Ministry of Sound asking us if we wanted to be involved in this project, we knew it was going to be very exciting. The more I heard about the project, the more I realized it was something we had to make the time for because it was so unique.

“The trick with getting as much of the experience from the Box into the back of the car is to retain the ability to reproduce loud sound pressure levels along with the clarity, definition and abundant low end you can get in the Box. This is something we’ve managed to achieve in a surprisingly compact system.”

The Juke Box also features an integrated radio studio, allowing anything played on the system to be captured for broadcast via Ministry of Sound’s digital radio app. After its debut at the world famous Le Mans 24-hour endurance race, the Juke Box will tour Europe highlighted by the “Nissan Juke Box Sessions,” a six-month radio partnership broadcast on the Ministry of Sound’s Digital Radio channel. The show will be built around a series of exclusive DJ sets recorded at Juke Box events across Europe throughout the summer.
