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.

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

Audio Assault’s new car audio project car

Audio Assault have been pondering about a new project car for some time now. Seeing as we already have the mega heavy 40 subwoofer Nissan Largo which we teamed up with Fast Car and Bass Mechanix to produce, we thought it would be a silly idea to go absolutely crazy again.

We needed some ideas, and quick! We brainstormed for days and decided that our best option would be to create a car which anybody on pretty much any budget could acheive. We decided on purchasing a Clio 182 in Black.

Now we could easily spend £50k again but this just defeats the object of having a show car (especially when we have the Largo sat next to it!). We wanted to push some of our none-premium brands. This opens the door for SNG Audio. One of the most up and coming subwoofer brands in the UK. The JT-12 is rated at 800w RMS each subwoofer with 3" Kapton Coated 4Ohm Voice Coils, running two woofers into 1Ohm with a 1600w RMS amp is easy. This will provide the basis for one beast of an SQL (Mix between SPL adn SQ) install.

Inside the car we are going to have a huge 6 cu-ft subwoofer box, slot ported and tuned to 30Hz. A sloped false floor revealing a Hifonics BXI-1610 Mono Amp and another amp driving the components that we plan to use. Now onto the speaker components themselves. We were going to run with RE Audio XXX 6.5" 175w RMS components but instead opted for a slightly cheaper (but just as effective) Lanzar Opti 6C, running at 250w RMS.

More details and images coming soon…

Introducing SNG Audio - A revelation in Car Audio Subwoofers

Important and exciting news just in from the AA Team, about one of the best Subwoofers to be released in recent years. The SNG Audio JT-12 Sub is one of the first of its kind to be released into the world. SNG Audio have built a subwoofer that is directly aimed to the SPL (Sound Pressure Level) and the SQ (Sound Quality) market making a new genre; SQL, a mixture between the both, but is equally good at either. The really good news about this product is that not only does it perform consistantly in both SPL and SQ but it out performs Subwoofers dedicated to one of the fields that are four or five time the price.

If your wondering why you’ve never heard of SNG Audio dont worry. Not many people have (apart from a few people in the know) within the UK Car audio scene. SNG Audio is the latest UK brand to announce its self onto the market, however the difference with this company is they actually make giant killing products. SNG Audio Hand build all of the Subwoofers in the UK (occasionally built to order) and can have custom colours powder coated to suit (on the pro series). 

Anyway more about the Jatt series JT-12 Subwoofer, being built with Volume and quality in mind. We were anticipating that the Sub woofer would not live up to our expectations, and provide good quality at low frequencies and bad quality at high frequencies like the majority of SPL Subwoofers, however this is not the case. To ensure quality and durability SNG have designed this little beauty from scratch adding a few patents along the way. What they have come up with is a truely unique Sub that can be compete with the best in SPL and match the best in SQ, The JT-12 screams TOP QUALITY at the top of its voice coil (haha pun there if anybody spotted it?) The Sound produced throughout the range are crisp and clean, offering Tight Bass at all frequencys.

SNG Audio is looking likely to set 2009 alight with their stunning cone and basket design. This subwoofer has it all. The main aim was to provide a subwoofer that didnt break the bank and didnt need the user to replace his/her battery when installing. It ticks all the boxes!

If your looking to upgrade your ICE install and improve your car audio system then you would be a fool to disregard the SNG Audio JT-12 subwoofer, no matter what your budget!

Fastcar - “Ear-pleasing Head Units that’ll rock your cockerel…”

Here at AA we believe that you should get the best for your money. It would be tragic if you ordered a subwoofer, an amplifier, a head unit or some speakers and decided you didn’t like them when you got them home. Thats why we have teamed up with Fast Car to get you the best reviews around from experts.

If your looking for an amazing value head unit that packs more tricks than Paul Daniels riding a performing seal, then this baby is for you. Boasting a 3-inch touchscreen TFT LCD display with a bluetooth hands free phone kit, the T1-8400 will give DVD/USB/SD/MMC file playback aswell as MP3 files, too. So basically once fitted you can make and receive calls whilst driving. This clever little unit also plays audio from your phone… Who needs an iPod?! T1 Audio T1-8400 - 5/5

View all T1 Audio products

This slick looking head unit has no CD drive, so its been specifically built for compressed music lovers. There’s a USB cable and iPod adapter included, so if your armed with an iPod or USB memory stick, then this baby is Plug ‘N’ Play! The IDA-X303 is also designed to work with the iPhone 3G, allowing you to access your iTunes Library on the move and charge your phone at the same time. Nice. The built in 4×45w amp will get your speakers pumping and there’s 2x 2V pre-outs and a dedicated 2V sub-out allowing you to build a proper system. The 2.2" display is dead easy to read and the 2 text lines bring up the iPods ID3 tag information. Searching through iPod playlists, songs and albums is all super quick and the central rotary controller looks bang-on. So if your into compressed music then this Digital Media Receiver is a good choice! Alpine IDA-X303 - 5/5

View all Alpine Products

This fantastic looking unit is crammed full of features, including an integrated Parrot Bluetooth module thats capable of auto-syncing with your phonebook and will allow you to make and receive calls on the move. As well as this, the unit will display your text messages but this can be turned off though, handy if your bit on the side is asking where her bra is. Of course, this Kenwood stunner comes with an iPod direct cable, so you can hook up your iPod and run it through your head unit. Sweet. Kenwood KDC-BT8041U - 5/5

SNG Audio - Cracking subwoofer!

Nowadays Car Audio & Entertainment products are everywhere! Anyone who thinks they can create a bit of bass wants to try their hand in it. The result is a market full of complete and utter crap. Amongst the waste however, is a gem! Here is the latest wave in ultimate SQL (Not quite SPL but not quite SQ, bordering on both Sound Pressure Level and Sound Quality and doing both equally as good as any woofer for any price).

SNG Audio is here and its hitting off with a big boom!

Before we start, we need to save you from the panic of seeing the price later. These subwoofers are retailing for £99!!!!! Not £300 as you would expect, £99!

Born out of the need for a revolution in Car Audio, the SNG Audio designers and engineers overcame many challenges to offer you extraordinary performance, supreme reliability and serious audiophile quality sound.

The SNG Audio JT-12 is the first street subwoofer to be released from SNG and we know for a fact that it is simply untouchable in its class (and price range. Infact, if you double the price you will find nothing to touch it!) SNG were fed up of hearing about "low frequency moster subs", they wanted to show the world that there is more to bass than 32Hz. "Do these people forget that theres a whole load of bass at the upper frequency end too?" SNG say.

They wanted a subwoofer that could handle the lows as good as any but also delved into the realms of accurate bass at all frequencies. The JT-12 was born! With 23mm Xmax at its disposal it can definately hit all the lows but also blends the gap between the rest of your sound system very easily.

To add even more flame to the fire, SNG are offering any colour powder coating onto the basket for only £10! This could mean that you have one of the sexiest pieces of car audio custom coloured to suit your needs!

Here is a small video of how tight the bass can be (from the prototype model)

 

As you can see from the following image, these subwoofers look the part with the sexy push terminals and wonderfully designed basket!

 

Check out the woven cone, looks very nice!

 

Here you can see the spider and flat tinsel leads along with the back of the cone.

 

 

Specification

Kevlar reinforced woven cone:   Yes you read correctly. We used kevlar (the bulletproof stuff) to help give the cone strength and reduce flexing under extreme use. The dustcap is woven to give the cone more stiffness while being light. We also found it was less prone to cracking when something hit it than the inverted dustcap other manufacturers use. Lets face it, its going to be in your boot with other things that could hit it -the less fragile the better right?

Flat tinsel leads: We use flat tinsel leads as they dissipate heat better than regular tinsel leads due to the increased cooling area. The leads are also stuck to the spider to eliminate tinsel lead slap.

Easy connect connectors: The connectors are a patented high grip push terminal that securely holds the wire in place, eliminating the need for an allen key. We also placed all four terminals on one side of the speaker so wiring in parallel/series is easier than ever! no need to trail the cable around the speaker!

Aluminium trim ring: The trim ring adds to the "wow factor" once the speaker is installed. It is made from highly polished aluminium that gives the installed speaker a touch of class.

3" Kapton coated voice coil: The kapton helps draw heat out of the coils so you can keep playing for longer.

Why Dual 4: We chose dual 4ohm coils because it allows a greater choice of amplifier; if running one speaker there are a whole host of amplifiers that deliver 700-1000w @ 2ohm. If running two speakers, likewise there are plenty of amps which deliver 1500-1800w @ 1ohm.

Box: The JT-12 is designed to perform equally well in sealed or vented enclosures. For tight very accurate bass, use a sealed box (1-1.5 cuft). If you prefer louder fuller bass use a ported box (2.5 cuft @ 33hz)

The Car Audio and Modified car Scene

The Buzz around Car Audio this year is phenominal, The scene is steadily growing at a rate not seen since the 90’s. The modified car and car audio shows like donny north and ISTS are becoming very popular again and new blood is being introduced into the "Modded" scene.

Unfortunately the scene had taken a down turn in recent times due to the bad reputation forced upon it by groups of outsiders including the police. Some of this criticism aimed at the scene was justified, as the actions of a minority were causing problems for locals within they’re particular area. However these actions were frowned upon by majority of people interested in the modified car and car audio scene who them selves were 100% law abiding.

Car Audio is now on the up, and this is evident by the number of audio brands available and fighting for custom. Several new brands are being introduced into the UK every year and the majority of them are very good quality. The problem with these brands is that they’re reputation hasn’t yet been earned (in the UK). This is a problem as alot of these brands are extremely high quality and offer much better value for money than some brands that are already known and selling well.

The Perfect example of this, is two of the latest brands to enter the UK; RE Audio (Resonant Engineering Audio) and Digital Designs. Both coming with a massive reputation abroad and have many awards between them. RE Audio is definitely our favourite brand at the minute. The Quality of the RE products is second to none in both SPL (sound pressure) and SQ (Sound Quality) with a price tag to match.

RE Audio and US Amps (the same company) produce a full range of high quality speakers, amplifiers and subwoofers that will out perform the vast majority of products on the market.  It wont be long before they are a real player in the car audio market. Make sure you get involved with RE, you heard it here first
