New High-End Mutant Subwoofers Hit The Market

Mutant hit the world of car entertainment in 2004 when it exploded into the car audio scene. With a comprehensive range of quality subwoofers, amplifiers, enclosures, speakers and head units, Mutant has continued to evolve at an unprecedented rate into the creature you see today. They are officially unveiling their new range today!

The new breed of Mutant Subwoofers are here, aptly named Mutant Conquest!

If its bass you are after then look no further… the Mutant Conquest is the sub you want. Available in a choice of 10" (MTCON10), 12" (MTCON12) or a  15" (MTCON15). Cones are constructed from lightweight, rigid, woven glass fiber and supported by diamond cut aluminium baskets to ensure clean, undistorted bass - and thats just to begin with!

The Conquest could win prizes for its aesthetics but it has a dark side too. Lurking beneath its glamorous surface are 4-layer black aluminium voice coils, with superb heat resistance and a vented coil perameter to keep them cool, they ensure the high power handling and unparalleled reliability that you are looking for.

Massive double-stacked magnets allow for greater cone movement, further increasing the power handling capabilities of the speaker; a vented back plate ensures that this extra cone travel is unimpeded by releasing back-pressure and retaining sound quality. Whats more, Conquest spring loaded, silver plated terminals have been designed for use with heavy gauge speaker cable so that loss of power from the Amp is also minimised.

All in all, the Mutant Conquest is a beast of a sub. If you can handle it, unleash the beast in your sound system!

Why do we need car entertainment

Since the 60’s & 70’s we have had the need to be entertained whilst driving, obviously as time has gone by car entertainment systems have become much more complex and user friendly, but has it become more enjoyable and important?

In actual fact the first stereo or “audio device” that was installed into a car dates back to the 1930 by the Galvin Brothers, who started the trend. However it didn’t take off straight away as many other factors hindered the popularity which we won’t get into now. It was a considerable time later before cars was produced with an entertainment system included.

Car stereos were the first real type of entertainment, mainly consisting of a car Radio with tuneable frequencies that would cycle through a range of AM broadcasting stations, they and later went on to include tape-deck that would play one way, then both ways. This was point that the car entertainment factor really took off.

Music manufactures realised how important Car entertainment was at the time and produced a range of products that would allow their music to be played whilst driving as well as at home. Since then the car audio and entertainment industry has expanded and evolved to become one of the main features of a car.

Modern day cars are designed to allow optional add-ons such as sat navs, Bluetooth devices that allow you to communicate handsfree, High end headunits that are capable of playing DVDs on multiple screens, entertainment systems that have surround sound playing music and audio from all corners of the car, Live TV broadcasts from satellite stations and so much more.

But do we really need all of this? I Think Yes. The devices mentioned above are all designed because of one purpose which is because they make our life much easier and safer in some way. Whether it be to help us relax on a long and stressful drive or when stuck in traffic. Or to answer the phone safely whilst driving. There is a need to have them now more than ever, and with the ever growing market the possibilities of new and improved car audio products are endless.

Aftermarket or Factory Car Speakers

So you love your music, and you play it all the time whether at home or more often than not in the car, but do you know the difference between music and great sounding music, or does it make a difference to you how good your music sounds?

Often modern cars have an option to upgrade all the audio equipment, this will often increase the quality of the audio (or video) especially when the volume is turned up. However If you haven’t upgraded any of the factory fitted equipment in your car it’s likely that you haven’t experienced good sounding music. So the question is do you want to hear your music how it should be played. If so you will need to go aftermarket.

Most people are unsure about upgrading the sound system because they are concerned it will be too complicated, either fitting or compatibility. However with speakers the only thing you really have to look for is the mounting size and depth. The rest tends to take care of its self. The size of the speakers will depend on the size of the “holes” left from the previous speakers. They usually 5.25” but can be 4” and 6.5”. The depth is the amount of space between the door card wall and the car door wall; this will vary from car to car.

 The Price of the car speakers will be dependent on the quality of the equipment (and the sound you want to produce) however often you don’t need spend loads to get a significant improvement. Factory speakers often run at around 5-15watts per speaker (20watts if you have the upgrade) however you can buy a cheap pair of speakers for £20 that will produce around 50watts, doubling or tripling the power handling capabilities.

If you still have your factory fitted headunit (stereo) installed the new car speakers would be under powered however this wouldn’t affect the quality of the audio being played (it just means it wouldn’t be as loud.)

6×9 Car Speakers

There are a few things you should consider before deciding what 6×9 speakers you need. Firstly, where do you want the speakers mounting, in the front or back of the car, in a built in console? Do you want to display them or hide them? What type of audio do you want to achieve from them (there are more than you think) are the speakers to replace other factory speakers or are they to complement other components? And do you need them amplifying? As you can see from a few sample questions there can be a lot of thought required before purchasing the correct speakers for you.

Hopefully i can provide a little information that will help you make a decision.

First of all and probably the most important, where are you going to mount them. 6×9 speakers are an odd size that very few vehicles cater for. This means you will have do a little more work to install them. Either cutting into a parcel shelf (which i wouldn’t recommend, unless you like the untidy look?) or boxing them and building a surround. This is usually done in the boot but is some 6×9 can be added under seat or hidden in consoles. Which in my opinion is the better option as installing them in the boot reduces the sound (which is the reason you want them right?)

What Audio do you want from them?

6×9 speakers are good at producing mid range sounds, this is why many people use them in conjunction with subwoofers and tweeters. Most 6×9 car speakers are capable of producing a decent amount of bass, and can achieve quite high frequencies as well, so there often used to bride a gap between Subs and Tweeters to stop the mid frequencies being drowned out.

Are the Speakers replacing any other car speakers?

Well the chances are that your car will not have 6×9 speakers, but this does not mean you can’t install them. Often a amplifier is needed to power them, however you can wire straight from the speaker out sockets on the stereo. If you wire from the stereo it’s likely that the 6×9 speakers will be under powered, and the performance of the speakers will be compromised.

How much do I need to spend on them?

Prices on 6×9 speakers vary depending on the quality. Prices start a around £30 and can go right up to £250 or more for a good pair. Although you can pick up a decent set for £60 that will be sufficient in most good audio installs.

In conclusion, 6×9 car speakers are beneficial if you want a boost to your audio system or to complete a component set. If you’re looking for a small boost you should be looking to spend in the region of £25-£40 but if you have a good quality SQ install don’t be cheap and go for a £250 or more set, pair with a good amp and you’ll be laughing.
