POWERBASS: TOP-NOTCH AUDIO PRODUCTS WITHOUT BREAKING THE BANK

Located in Ontario, California, Powerbass was founded in 2001 with the goal of producing top-notch audio products that can provide the public with excellence, value and reliability that we expect from an amazing brand. Twenty years later, Powerbass is still continuing to produce speakers, amplifiers and other accessories for vehicles, marine and powersports that will fit one’s budget and preferred application.

Here are just some of the wide array of products that Powerbass has to offer.

The Powerbass S-4002 coaxial car speakers is part of the Powerbass S-series, which has been around for 8 years. It has been tried and tested through time, and it has stuck around for this long for a reason. At just 4 inches, it still packs a punch with its sound quality. It has a shallow mounting depth, a 0.75 pure silk dome tweeter with neodymium magnet that delivers a smooth treble reproduction, a 2-layer DDC (Dynamic Damping Coating) cone that reduces distortion while adding UV protection and 4-ohm impedance.

Another great Powerbass speaker from the S-series is the S-60C. It is a 6.5-in component speaker system that has a 1-inch silk dome tweeter, a black 2 layer paper DDC cone that provides UV protection, a double pressed treated foam surround, a rigid tooled basket with a black finish and a 4-ohm impedance. 

For subwoofers, Powerbass has the PS series which are perfect for music enthusiasts that are on a budget but cannot skimp on sound quality (I mean, who doesn’t?). One of the subwoofers they offer on these series is the PS-12, which is a 12” single 4-ohm subwoofer. It has a ribbed, DDC-treated paper cone, a 2-layer roll treated foam surround, a precision stamped steel basket with aeroventing, and  a 2” BASV voice coil. The 10-inch version, the PS-10, boasts the same specifications as the PS-12. Both of these subwoofers are optimized for sealed or ported enclosures.

And finally, Powerbass offers amplifiers. Their legendary ASA-series amplifiers are now on the third generation, which are the ASA3 amplifiers! They are narrower than previous generations and are more versatile to install, have broader input sensitivity, new extruded chassis that is designed to manage heat more effectively and a switchable logo back lighting. 

The Powerbass ASA3-600.4 is a 4-channel, class A/B amplifier. It has a MOSFET power supply, an RCA input/RCA pass through output, LED power and protect indicators, remote soft delay turn on/off circuit, variable gain control, and is 2-ohm stable (4-ohm in bridged mode). Meanwhile, the ASA3-600.2 also has the same specifications as the ASA3-600.4, but is a 2-channel amplifier.

5th Day of OCS Christmas

♫ On the fifth day of OCS Christmas, my true love gave to me
An AudioControl LC2i LOC! ♬
 
The AudioControl LC2i is a compact LOC (line output converter). It has two channels of active input circuitry that allows it to accept speaker level inputs for up to 400W signals per channel. It converts them to high-quality pre-amp signals that can be directed to after-market processors or amplifiers. Simply put, it improves the sound quality of your factory-installed source unit without altering or disturbing the factory installed unit’s original features.
 
 
Another great feature of the LC2i is its GTO™ feature (which means GREAT TURN ON -- so witty!) which means that as soon as the LC2i turns on, it provides a 12 volt trigger output to turn on your amplifier. The factory default setting for the GTO™ circuit is always ON.
 
It also features an AccuBASS® processing that reverses bass frequencies because some factory radios reduce output as the volume increases so as not to damage the speakers. AccuBASS compensates and puts that bass back, improving your listening experience while still retaining the use of your factory-installed units.
 
Right now we are offering a 10% promo on the AudioControl LC2i. So what are you waiting for? Visit onlinecarstereo.com and purchase your very own LC2i. This would also be a perfect gift to a car audio-lover in your life. Subscribe to our newsletter to receive weekly promotions and save tons of cash especially this Christmas gift-giving season!

COAXIAL VS COMPONENT SPEAKERS -- WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Searching for the perfect speakers for your car is already an overwhelming thing to think about, much less think about what type of speaker to get. We always encounter coaxial and component speakers, but really, what’s the difference between these two types of speakers? (Disclaimer: These are just the basic differences between the two types of speakers. It is still advisable to research a bit more on the different types of coaxial and component speakers as they still have different specifications.)

 

Coaxial speakers are the most common (and popular!) type of speakers and are also called full-range speakers. They come in different configurations. The different types of coaxial speakers are also referred to as “drivers”. There is what we call the 2-way, the most common one, which is comprised of a woofer with a tweeter mounted on top of it. There is also the 3-way, also called tri-axial speakers, which is comprised of a woofer, a tweeter and a mid-range. 

 

Coaxial speakers are easy to install and requires minimal customization, and are more affordable than component speakers. This is probably the reason why coaxial speakers are so popular and are the choice of speakers car owners purchase if they just want to replace the factory-installed speakers of their vehicle. However, they lack the bass or the "boom" that component speakers might offer, especially if you enhance your component system with subwoofers.

 

Component speakers, also called “separates”, on the other hand, have a more advanced design than coaxial speakers. They are a speaker system where speakers are mounted separately. They consist of a woofer, tweeter, and crossover. 

Component speakers, unlike coaxial speakers, are more complicated to install than coaxial speakers. They're a bit more time-consuming to install and may require the help or the expertise of a professional to install them. They are also more expensive than coaxials. However, component speakers allow for a lot of customization. If you are planning to do a full system, complete with subwoofers and ultratweeters, getting component speakers is the way to go.

 

Choosing whether to get coaxial speakers or component speakers still depend on the car owner and their preferences. It still depends on the car owner how much they are willing to pay for their car audio, and whether they want customization for it or not. 

 

Either way, we here at onlinecarstereo.com have a wide array of coaxials and component speakers, and we’re currently having up to 15% off to a lot of our Kicker speakers, a lot of which are component and coaxial speakers. We also offer up to 15% off on our Kicker subwoofers and amps as well. You can also subscribe to our newsletter to receive weekly promotions and save tons of cash!

BLACK FRIDAY AND CYBER MONDAY TRIVIA!

Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching and that also means that Black Friday and Cyber Monday is also around the corner. This year in particular will be a very different one from all the previous years we have done the two biggest shopping days of the year because of the pandemic.

But where (and when) exactly did the terms “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” come from?

(image source: bloomberg.com)

Black Friday dates back to Philadelphia in the 1960s where newspapers in the state used the term to describe the massive frenzy of crowds at stores and the congestion of traffic that happens on the day after Thanksgiving. The crowd frenzy was paralleled after the original “Black Friday”, which was a stock market panic on September 24, 1869, where the price of gold collapsed due to then-President Ulysses Grant’s interference on the scheme of three investors: Jay Gould, James Fisk, and President Grant’s own brother-in-law, Abel Corbin.

Cyber Monday, however, is a much newer term that was coined by Ellen Davis of the National Retail Federation and Scott Silverman, and was used as a marketing term for the Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. It was created as a digital counterpart to Black Friday to encourage people to do online shopping and has rapidly become the biggest ecommerce event in the US, whereas Black Friday is more of a brick-and-mortar sale event. 

However, with the pandemic happening right now, Black Friday will probably shift to a bigger online event than it was before rather than doing the traditional in-store sales retailers have done in previous years. So definitely watch out in the coming weeks for upcoming deals and bundles for Black Friday and Cyber Monday at onlinecarstereo.com and subscribe to our newsletter to receive weekly promotions and save tons of cash!
