Prepare For the Zombie Apocalypse!

They’re Coming…

When people think about the end of the world and exactly how it’s going to end, there are usually two words that come to mind: Zombie Apocalypse.  Doomsday is almost here and people are getting more and more antsy.  A growing number of people (including myself)  think that doomsday  will come in the form of brain-hungry zombies chasing us down until there’s none of us left.  No one wants to be zombie food so i’m here to help you prepare Sonic Electronix style!  Many people may not realize it, but we sell tons of products that can give you the upper hand on our undead counter-part.

                                                  Tools & Generators

Powered Handsaw

Powered Handsaw

Oh yes.  We have all sorts of  hand tools and power tools that can assist you in the diabolic, post-apocalyptic world.  Not only can you use many tools for mundane tasks but you can use them as weapons against the flesh-eating hordes!  Just imagine the piece of mind you can have with a powered saw or a huge hammer by your side.   You can never have to many tools in a zombie-infested world.  You’ll also want to invest in a generator to keep some light in a dark world.

Radios

Shortwave AM/FM Radio

Shortwave AM/FM Radio

Don’t be the person who misses out on important broadcast messages that could possibly save your life.  Pick up a Shortwave or AM/FM radio in order to listen to all messages broadcasted by the government. Keep in mind that zombies are attracted to noise so make sure you play them at strategic times.  We even have CB radios so you can link up with other surviviors and fight the dead together.  Let’s face it no one wants to be alone in a zombie apocalypse. Just remember if they say to go to a military base that it might be overrun.

Subwoofers

10" Subwoofer

10" Subwoofer

You might be thinking, “Why would you need a subwoofer in a Zombie Apocalypse?” A subwoofer might seem like an odd thing to have but hear me out. Say your trying to create a distraction to escape a large crowd of walkers.  Just place a vehicle equipped with a subwoofer in a strategic location.  Play the low bass tones of a subwoofer and watch as the mindless goons are attracted to the noise. See? who says car audio needs to die when the world does? Alternatively, you can always bash them over the head with one.

Pro Audio Equipment

Strobe Light

Strobe Light

The best zombie is a dead (again) zombie but sometimes you have to choose your battles wisely.  Pro Audio equipment can further your camouflage from the zombie population.  The same Djs that use equipment like fog machines and strobe lights can use these to their advantage.  Using strobe lights to blind zombies or just to light up an area and fog machines to conceal your location can mean the difference between a safe getaway and an all you can eat serving of “yourself”.

All of these items could help save your life just a few months from now.  You might laugh now but what if it actually happens? Wouldn’t you want to be as ready as possible? We’re ready for the impending Z-day.  Are you?
