True but then again I am never satisfied with bass. I always end up needing more powah!!!!!

6OEM vs. Aftermarket. Thoughts???

May 23 at 12:40pm - Jd Thompson

Some newer cars today have a decent sound system that can compete with about $500 worth of upgrades in a stock basic system. However if you want any real power combined with any kind of quality you definitely need an aftermarket system bc even with advanced speaker placement your not going to get alot of power from a factory system even if amplified. So if you want to see more that 110-120db (if your lucky) from your car stereo you need to go aftermarket! And quite frankly my dodge magnum’s factory amplified system is loud but it doesn’t tickle my sweet spot for power!

9You pull up to a red light and hear the car next to you is bumping louder than your system. What’s your next move?

I love to turn my bass knob down to where there’s no bass to let them think they’re louder, then once the light turns green crank the knob up and watch their heads turn and just stare at me, lol

Audiopipe – Car Audio for the People

Who Is Audiopipe?

11kyqe8

Audiopipe was initially established in the United States by Gonzalo “Gonzi” Palenzuela. Gonzi’s inspiration to car audio came from his father who started working with Pioneer Japan in the mid 60’s. Gonzi’s father, Gonzalo Senior, became close friends with then president of Pioneer Mr. Tamura, and Gonzalo Senior’s work brought Pioneer to the number one selling car audio brand in the Caribbean and South America. Gonzi, from early on, had the opportunity of interacting with employees at Pioneer Japan and even staying at Mr. Tamura’s home in Tokyo. In Audiopipe’s initial startup, sales were first launched in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions, and then migrated and spread to the US. The initial focus was designing speakers for the Latin and Reggae sound. As Caribbean customers moved to the states , places like New York, Chicago, Orlando and Miami became hot spots for the Audiopipe brand. The brand name has been synonymous with loud and clear percussion and vocals.

Audiopipe is considered a progressive car audio brand that is at the forefront of the car audio evolution. Audiopipe brought Pro Audio to the automobile and has forever changed the car audio industry. Audiopipe’s unique sound performance runs through a wide variety of genres heard throughout the North America/South America, and Caribbean urban underground music culture. They are founded on the basic principles of hard pounding bass, true life percussion, mid-bass and vocal reproduction. As a car audio manufacturer, Audiopipe takes pride in both meeting the demands of their consumers, as well as their installers. All of their customer and installer feedback is taken into their design and development process, and in adopting this philosophy, it has helped them engage into the endless perfecting of their product’s designs for loud and clear results. Nothing makes the developers at Audiopipe more happy than to hear the enthusiasm in a customer’s voice as they say “I can’t believe that you were able to make what I requested so quickly”.

In 2013 Audiopipe finalized the construction of its state of the art manufacturing facility. Allowing new designs and ideas to come to life quickly and ensuring that those designs are manufactured to the highest standards.

Audiopipe, High Performance

2015-05-22_0735

Audiopipe customers have been asking for more power handling and more enduring amplifiers. The 2015 lineup delivers with triple stacked magnets on the TXX-BD3 series, sound quality with high power in the Q-12 driver, and true spec output from the APCL family of amplifiers. Not only do these models handle more power and output more power, they are specifically designed to handle and output that high power for an extended period of time. Even better, they are engineered to be affordable and enjoyed by everyone!

Q-12

2015-05-22_0850

‘Quality’ is the theme behind the Q-12, and it is clearly seen in the overall build of the driver. A Quad stacked 250oz magnet increases the magnetic field surrounding the oversized 3″ 4 Layer voice coil, generating a mechanical force that causes the coil to move back and forth. The Q-12 features Edge Extension technology that provides maximum flexibility under extreme excursion with the advantage of a greater cone surface.

TXX-BD3

The ever popular TXX-BD3-12 is equipped with a 3.3-inch 4 layer black aluminum voice coil, a 204oz triple stacked magnet, and a motor capable of handling a rated 900 watts RMS, giving them the size and power capacity for extreme endurance challenges. Its size, configuration, and power ratings makes it a perfect match for the very attractive Audiopipe APCL-15001D.

The only product in the Audiopipe lineup that is more popular than the BD3 drivers, is the Audiopipe APCL-15001D. We set out to see how much power the amplifier could provide and the APCL-15001D proved to not only do its rated numbers at 14V but it also gave us up to 35% more power on a 16V load.

Their Research and Development starts at the consumer, and the outcome is a following that will stop at nothing to put as much Audiopipe product in their vehicles as physically possible.

Car Audio Equipment Ideal for Hip-Hop/Rap Music

Ever wonder as to whether or not it makes a difference as to what type of sound system you have in your vehicle that truly fits with the type of music you listen to? Well the truth is that yes, there is quite a significance in sound quality dependent upon pairing up the right equipment to fit into what style of music you prefer to listen to.

Kicker C104 10" Subwoofer

Kicker C104 10" Subwoofer

The best car speakers for Hip Hop music should be designated to make your songs sound great. Hip Hop sounds best on a system that has the ability to create good bass notes and strong midrange sound. The bass notes are vital to make sure the beat is clear through the song. The midrange notes will make the lyrics and backup crisp and powerful.

Earthquake Sound TNT-12S 12" Subwoofer

Earthquake Sound TNT-12S 12" Subwoofer

The best speakers for bass are clearly subwoofers or “subs.” 10 inch or 12 inch subs will hit the bass notes that are too low for standard speakers. When you turn up the bass in a car without subs the music becomes distorted and doesn’t sound right. Add the extra bass of a subwoofer, and it sounds accurate to its production. That’s the extra power of the larger speakers coming in to give the bass an extra hit.

JL Audio TR600-CXi 6" Speakers

JL Audio TR600-CXi 6" Speakers

For midrange, a good set of 6 inch speakers will fill out the system very nicely. This will combine with the subs giving your favorite songs the quality sound you deserve. 6 by 9 speakers are a little more expensive, but they are even niftier than 6 inch speakers and have a little better range. If you can fit it in your budget, they are a great choice.

Pioneer TS-A6994R 6" x 9" Speakers

Pioneer TS-A6994R 6" x 9" Speakers

With these 2 basic components, you’ll be sure to have a great sounding car stereo. If it’s in your budget you might even consider adding a basic set of tweeters, but they aren’t as important because high notes aren’t as common in Hip Hop as they are in other types of music.

Make sure you check out all of our car audio equipment here at Sonic Electronix, and make sure you find the right system that will truly bring out the definition of your choice in music while you are on the road.

You’ve got your subwoofer, now what about the box?

There are three different types of subwoofer boxes that you should be looking to consider, depending on what type of subwoofer you get.

Sealed Subwoofer Enclosure

Sealed Subwoofer Enclosure

The sealed subwoofer enclosure is described by great transient response, excellent low frequency power handling, and a smaller box size. When a speaker is attached in a box, the air in the box turns to shape a spiral. Yet, sealed systems incline to hurt from complex limit points and lower sensitivity than the other low rate systems. They are usually the subwoofer of choice due to their great response.

Ported Subwoofer Enclosures

Ported Subwoofer Enclosures

ported enclosure system contains of a driver fixed on a side of a box that has an open area that lets the air in and out of the box. The port is there to tune the closed off space so that the rear wave of the speaker boosts the front wave of the speaker. This tends to results in a subwoofer with higher effectiveness. At lower frequencies, the opening adds greatly to the output of the system. The box design itself is made to perform as a filter to cutting off lower frequencies.

 

Bandpass Subwoofer Boxes

Bandpass Subwoofer Boxes

Bandpass boxes will produce more bass than either of the previous boxes mentioned, but over a thinner range of frequency. Working as a filter, the box blocks lower and higher frequencies, and in most cases a crossover is not needed.  These boxes are typically big and provide very accurate volumes.  Bandpass boxes also usually cover distortion which at times leads to damaged subs. Bandpass enclosures are very efficient in the band of frequencies that they are tuned to or pass.

Make sure to check out all the subwoofer boxes we have right here at SonicElectronix.com
