SNG Audio Review

After alot of hype and coverage about the SNG Audio JT-12’s we needed to know just how good it was. Could it really be the best thing to happen to car audio for years? The reputation that it was gathering was immense and everybody must have thought "can it actually be THAT good?!". Well we have been finding out.

Audio Assault have been putting alot of time and effort into testing the SNG Audio JT-12 Subwoofer over the last 4 weeks and have changed many variables including the box, the amp amd the head unit.  None of which made much difference to the overall conclusion… WHAT A CRACKING SUBWOOFER!

The SNG JT-12 is rated at 800w RMS and has two 4ohm Voice Coils. Running one subwoofer means that you will need an amp to run at 2ohms, running two is perfect for amps capable of running at 1ohm.

We set the rig up on the test car and popped the SNG into a box we had lying around (click me for video). We ran it at 2ohms from a Hifonics BXI-1206D. This amplifier would give it 900w RMS - 100w RMS more than suggested. Early tests were good. It took all the Hifonics could give, even when we tried sending it a highly clipped signal! The box was too small but you couldnt tell too much in listening (or so we thought until we changed the box). We then had a custom box built which was much larger than the original 1.8cu-ft box. This one was 2.5cu-ft - tuned to 35hz. BOY did it make a difference. This subwoofer came out and sounded simply stunning. It was very musical aswell, hitting all the notes even playing the kind of music our grandma’s listens to!

The next challenge was a power test! This one was going to be interesting.  We swapped the amps over for the newer and large Hifonics BXI-1608D. This one gave it 1100w RMS.. It took every last bit of it as expected. The extra power didnt make too much difference to the output but you could certainly tell. Again, we gave it an extremely clipped signal and wacked the gain on high to see how much it could take… again, no problems.

The final test was a US Amps MD3D, an outstanding amp! Could it take the power? Of course! We were wrong to ever doubt it!

As a daily driver, this was simply outstanding! Pure streetbass bred with SQ, it could do both very well. My ears are still ringing now!

The Fusion CA-IP500 Continues to show the way

The worlds very first car stereo which has a built-in iPod dock INSIDE the actual stereo has been given even more recognition from reviewers around the world. The unit has already won many awards but added to the long list is an award from the UK’s most respected Modified Car Magazine… FastCar.

‘Trickest Headunit Of The Year’

The judges from Fast Car magazine, were impressed with not only the units unique iPod docking system, but also its looks, value for money and its feature packed specifications list.

One of the judges commented;

‘ Those crazy people at Fusion thought outside or the box, when they served up the worlds first internal iPod-dock head unit. You simply pull down the face plate of the unit to reveal the iPod compartment, allowing you to dock your iPod inside the unit. Trickier than David Blaine on a magic carpet.’

To win this catagory, when up against companies who have been estabilished in the headunit market for many years, is a great testament to the innovative thinking and design that Fusion have put into the unit.

 

Things are looking up for Fusion Car Audio and will continue to go from strength to strength. Next year will see some even bigger and better ideas so stay tuned.

The 2009 Orion Car Audio lineup proudly pulls forward the Orion legacy, standing up once again as the best and the strongest, in a market overflowing with copy cats and wanna-be’s. These new Orion products represent the best of the best!

Born in the 1980s in the dawn of the mobile audio revolution, Orion High Current Competition Amplifiers (HCCA) put the industry and the competition
world on notice that Orion was a force to be reckoned with. HCCA gear is what you have to have to be the LOUDEST, the LOWEST, and the STRONGEST system in the joint, with serious amounts of power driving ridiculously low impedances at completely sick output levels. Whether you’re looking for an SPL world record or you just want to do some serious damage on the streets, these four HCCA amplifiers will ensure they hear you before they see you. Hellacious power intersects with extreme efficiency under rugged die-cast aluminum covers with old-school Orion badges that tell the world that HCCA rules!

The 2009 Orion HCCA Subwoofers are the biggest, baddest and most hardcore subwoofers Orion has ever made! Step up to premium 3000- watt peak SPL performance with these frighteningly powerful redesigned new red-and-black HCCA 10s, and 4000-watt peak SPL performance with the new HCCA 12” and 15” subwoofers from Orion, a world leader in competition lane mayhem for 25 years. Match them with new HCCA Amplifiers and Components that sound as awesome as they look and you’re ready to clear the decks!

Mutant review range and add new “serious” lines

We all know about the reputation that Mutant has. Its not rubbish stuff by no means but it struggles to be taken seriously sometimes when compared to some of the big boys of Car Audio & Entertainment. This lead the chaps at Mutant Audio to put some effort into trying to push their brand as far as possible using the same technology and the same budget. The result is astounding!

New for 2009 are a few lines in the Mutant Portfolio. First we have the new Mutant Conquest Subwoofers. These are designed to fight back against the big boys with style and substance. With an UNDER-rated 400w RMS, Mutant have gone in a different direction to the likes of Vibe who consistantly OVER-rate their products power handling. These are due in for testing soon and look impressive indeed.

Next on the list is the new Engage subs. Mutant still see a market for cheaper subwoofers so these are perfect for a budget buy. Good bang per buck.

Then we have the new range of amplifiers. Mutant Ascension. Good value, Great performance.

Mutant have worked hard on the latest wave of speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers and you can tell. All have good finishes and more importantly… Perform more than you would imagine
