Save Money This Holiday Season with Refurbished Products

Early Black Friday Deals at Sonic Electronix

With the holiday season fast approaching, it is time to start shopping for all our loved ones. But when there are so many loved ones in our lives, the cost of the holidays can get pretty steep. That’s one reason why new holidays have been created to help the customer save more money while shopping for the holidays. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Thanksgiving sales are all in favor of the consumer saving money and getting more out of your holiday season. Who doesn’t want to get more for less? Another way to save money this season is to buy factory refurbished items.

Factory refurbished items are items that the manufacturer has received back and re-released after addressing any issues with the product. These items (also known as re-certified, re-issued, reconditioned, or rebuilt) have typically been returned to the manufacturer because the original customer was not 100% satisfied with the initial purchase. One thing that is important to note about these items is that it doesn’t always mean that the product had a problem. Often times these items simply didn’t meet the customers needs or that the customers wasn’t fully aware how to install the product, which resulted in an undesirable outcome. The item is then sent back to the manufacturer, tested to work perfectly, and resold as refurbished.  So what does that mean exactly? It means that the majority of these items never had any problem with them in the first place. The other percentage that did have a performance issue have been fixed to work just like a brand new product.

For an example, the Hifonics BXi1608 refurbished is available and offers the same performance as a brand new amplifier. The manufacturer still provides a warranty and coverage on the product. With all the same features as the brand new item, the refurbished is the perfect solution for a cost effective alternative with the same great performance.


Hifonics Brutus Subwoofers


By Gideon V. – Sonic Electronix Editor

Now you can add “Brute” force to your car audio system. The Hifonics Brutus line boasts some the hardest-hitting subwoofers in the industry. These efficiently tuned powerhouses will keep your seat vibrating and your ears ringing. The specially designed 100-oz. magnets are supported by nickel-plated ported back plates to reinforce the mainframe of the subwoofer as you “rock out” with your music bumping. This subwoofer can sustain peak performance even during the most intense musical breakdowns. The polypropylene cone enables this sub to endure the high temperatures found in the vehicle setting.

The Hifonics B10D4 is a 10” Brutus series dual 4 ohm subwoofer. This woofer can emit a chest pounding 500 watts of RMS power. Producing such intense bass puts a lot of stress on a subwoofer, but Brutus subwoofers are fashioned with a stitched Nitrile-Butadiene Rubber surround to prevent the woofer from tearing. The NBR material is a synthetic rubber that keeps the cone secure while the woofer reverberates to the rhythm. It is very strong and resistant to a wide range of temperatures, making it an ideal component in car subwoofers. The cone is reinforced with a special neck support to prevent the sub from falling apart throughout periods of heavy usage.

The Hifonics B15D2 is a 15” Brutus series dual 2 ohm subwoofer. You ears will be begging for mercy when you put this sub in your car, as it can handle up to 700 watts of continuous power! As with every Brutus subwoofer, the B15D2 has a polypropylene cone woofer that is stitched into place with a NBR surround. The anti-resonance magnet boot mitigates unwanted wave cancellation and is one of the reasons why this subwoofer is able to provide an amazingly accurate bass response.

Even though Brutus subwoofers absolutely pound, Hifonics designed them to provide amazingly clear playback as well. You can put your Brutus subwoofers in either a ported or sealed enclosure. Either way you, you will enjoy the best of both worlds: audio clarity with deep bass. Brutus subwoofers bang so loud, it’s brutal!
