What The HELLA is Going On?

You talked me into it, I’ll take all the HELLA stuff you got.

If you’ve never heard of HELLA (pronounced Hee-la) you might be wondering who the Hella they are and what the Hella they make. So let me explain why HELLA is so Hella awesome (OK I’m done with the Hella puns). HELLA is a German company which kind of automatically means they make great stuff. Think of all the other great German companies like Mercedes, BMW, Philips, Adidas, Audi, Hugo Boss (I should buy myself a new suit… I look pretty snazzy in a suit) etc., etc…

Anyways, HELLA was founded way back in 1899, when things were much much older, and today is one of the top 50 global automotive suppliers. Currently, we sell their lighting and automotive accessory products. These include: Daytime Running Lights, Fog Lights, Driving Lights, Headlamp Kits and more. We also sell their air horns and if you don’t think you need an air horn, you should read my other blog which tells you why you’re wrong in thinking that. They’re seriously awesome.

LEDay Flex Daytime Running LightsMost of the high end HELLA products are designed and precision manufactured in Germany with high quality materials for a product that is built to last. Take the LEDay Flex 8 for example which uses a magnesium bulb housing. Not only is Magnesium a cool word because it reminds me of Magneto from the X-men, it’s also lightweight, highly durable and a good conductor of heat—much like Aluminium. This will keep your lights cool because the heat is being conducted away from the components.

HELLA lighting is even used by OEM car manufacturers—such as the aforementioned Mercedes, and also Cadillac—in their high end luxury vehicles. If you were to take the bulb out of the headlamp on these vehicles, you’d find a sweet little HELLA light bulb. A regular Joe junk product doesn’t get to run with those big boys. When it comes to lighting, HELLA knows what they’re doing.

So, when you come to Sonic Electronix, be sure to check all the different product offerings we have now. We’re not just car audio anymore, we’re everything car related. And don’t forget to check out all of our top notch HELLA products for all of your lighting and air horn needs. Yes, air horns are needs. Seriously, check em out.


LED Lighting – What’s the Big Deal?

LED Lighting

LED’s. Light emitting diodes.

It’s where it’s at, in case you didn’t know. 

But why? why so popular and cool all of a sudden? Well have you seen LED lighting? They ARE cool. All bright and shiny and illuminating… But they’re useful too.

As interior lights they’re brighter and more efficient then your typical interior bulbs and last a lot longer too. People are finding all kinds of interesting ways to install them too to add a unique style and flair to their vehicle. They come in all kinds of colors like blue, red, purple, green and more so you can match your interior or mix and match your own custom color scheme. You can use them as dome lights, puddle lights or any other kind of lights you might want to do. They’re easy to install and only require a small drill and a power and ground connection. Not to mention they’re less harsh on your eyes.

As exterior lights, you’ll find them used in all kinds of things from daytime running lights, fog lights and even headlights. They’re significantly brighter than typical halogen lights and last much longer too. Most LED’s have a lifespan of over 100,000 hours. And since they’re so much more efficient, you get a brighter light with less of a strain on your charging system.

So you get awesome looking lights that are way brighter, more efficient and and last longer  than your normal bulbs. Seriously, have you seen how cool they look installed in a car? Not to mention the projector logo lights… Those are pretty nifty.
