Fusion Subwoofers

Fusion Subwoofers

are amongst the few car audio products that high street shoppers recognize as being reputable. The main reason for this is the incredible way that Fusion attacked the UK market with their strange marketing campaign. The thing is with marketing, it doesn’t matter how strange or outrageous your campaign is, it simply has to be memorable!

 

Fusion came onto the scene with a huge bang by throwing in 30,000 free blow up green aliens in the Christmas edition of the Fast Car magazine back in 1998. This worked so well that within weeks everybody who was anybody in the modified car scene had one blown up on their backseat wherever they went. Fusion were obviously delighted so decided to offer 30,000 more free blow up aliens, this time to the Max Power magazine. Fusion Subwoofers were really about to gain the reputation that got them where they are today.

 

Before long, orders were flying in for Fusion as they grew larger by the week. Within one year, they had a dealer in every city in the UK. Things couldn’t have worked out better for them.

 

Now that Fusion had the attention of its customer base, it was time to redevelop the products and ranges to improve on price and quality. They introduced even more Fusion Subwoofers in the form of bass packs and active amplified Fusion subwoofers. They called this the “Encounter” range.

 

About this time, Halford’s wanted to get involved. They realized the potential of the brand and decided to get on board. This provided customers the opportunity to get hold of Fusion Subwoofers easier than ever before. A few years later the internet shopping craze arrived, pioneered by Car Audio Plus (being one of the very first car audio retailers). This made it even easier still for customers to purchase Fusion products.

 

In the last few years Fusion went into a black hole and were largely unnoticed but now they are back and bigger than before. Car Audio Plus again is the place to go and the prices of the Fusion Subwoofers are outstanding.

 

The ranges have changed and holding up the entire range of products is the new and improved Encounter range, this is the budget range for people who simply want a little bit more bass for their car. Next is the middle of the range “Reactor” range. This provides a large power increase over the Encounter range but is slightly more expensive. Top of the list is the “Powerplant” range, these Fusion Subwoofers really are something to be in awe of. The Powerplant subs are extremely powerful and handle the power very well. Prices obviously increase over the Reactor range but the performance increase completely outweighs the price increase. These Powerplant subwoofers look like they have made their name for themselves already and their reputation is growing fast.

 

Fusion plan on another large marketing campaign within Fastcar and Max Power once again so you might see some blow up aliens back where they belong, on the back seat of modified cars! This time they might even be glow in the dark!

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!

Audio Assault to increase their range of Bass Factory car audio boxes

We are well known around the UK for our custom made subwoofer boxes courtesy of bass Factory in Birmingham. If our customers have a certain subwoofer and need a custom designed and made box then we are the specialists. You may only have a certain size boot? Possibly your boot isnt very wide but is nice and deep. This is where we come into our prime. We can design car audio boxes for all needs. Whether you have a huge Rockford Fosgate subwoofer or an even bigger RE Audio subwoofer, maybe you might have a JBL, Earthquake, Fusion or SNG Audio, it matters not. We take the spec of the subwoofer and design a box to suit your needs.

We have taken this onto the next step and have designed pre-built boxes specific to certain subwoofers. Our first product line will be the Bass Factory JW12P, dedicated specifically to the JL Audio W7 12" subwoofer. Using 1" thick MDF (which can be upgraded to Birch Ply if needed) and a 1.75 cu-ft enclosure, it provides the perfect working conditions for the subwoofer to thrive.

We will be expanding on the range of brand specific car audio boxes to include boxes designed for the likes of MTX, Rockford Fosgate, RE Audio, JL Audio, Earthquake, Lanzar Opti, Focal, Hifonics and much more!
