Low Profile Amplified Subwoofer Enclosures

Amplified low profile SubWoofer Enclosures are great for people who would love to add a subwoofer to their car's audio system but are unable to due to space constraints. Not only do you need to find space to put the subwoofer, but you also have to find a place of an amp to drive the sub.
While space constraints can cause issues; these space saving subwoofer solutions are surprisingly easy to install and can add a nice low end to any car audio system.

At $129 these units are some of the most cost effective options but also produce surprising sound quality.

Check out a customer review:

Oh my gosh, these are truly the pinnacle of audiophile speakers. The Diamond S600s outperform my previous speaks which were Dynaudio. Even more natural sounding than Dynaudio's yet extremely detailed. Had to get rid of the Focals and Quart Premium's because they were too sizzly...just nasty. Not sure how people can listen to those harsh tweets. These seem to remind me of my old favorites - ADS 320i's. They're that good!

Fuel Cells And Hybrid Cars; The Saviors Of Us All?

I spent a few hours watching television over the weekend which is a pretty rare occurrence for me. During the time I was watching, I noticed that most of the car manufacturers were really trying to get on our good side by inundating us with ads about Hybrids and Fuel Cell vehicles. High gas prices have definitely been a sore spot for many Americans recently and I guess this is their way of trying to show us that they're trying help the situation.

I wonder though, how helpful are they really being?

Fuel Cell vehicles are still many years off and are not currently a viable solution to the problem. Hybrid cars are here now, and many hybrid versions of pre-existing models are constantly flowing into the market. This should make hybrids our current best solution... right?

The car manufacturers would definitely like us to believe that, but I'm not so sure. 

 

Currently SUVs feature some of the worst MPG ratios and though their hybrid counterparts do improve on their performance, the benefits are marginal and still far worse than non-hybrid cars that have been available for years. Cars like the Civic and Corolla have always been relatively easy on the wallet where gas is concerned. 

I'm definitely a huge advocate of new technologies that reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and I do believe that hybrid cars are a step in the right direction but it seems that, right now, auto-manufactures are simply using them as a way to get into our wallets. They're focusing on 'green' as a fad and not as a solution.
