3rd Day of OCS Christmas

On the 3rd of OCS Christmas, my true love sent to me is a JL Audio 12 inch subwoofer. The 12W3v3-4 is a bass powerhouse that produces world class and high quality sound. Having been built by one of the best car audio manufacturers, JL Audio, this will surely be a monster sound once you drive along the streets. It has 100 to 500 watts RMS power and with a peak of 1000 watts. Even with a medium-power amplifier, this sub is made to deliver accurate bass sounds due to the design with exact cone movement at any level of power. The W3V3-4's works well with either sealed or ported enclosure. JL's patented design is a one of kind that removes the stress on the cone upon movement making the bass sound consistent and reliable.

GREAT STOCKING STUFFERS AT OCS

It’s already less than two weeks ‘til Christmas and some of us right now are already probably doing quite a bit of Christmas shopping. Onlinecarstereo is a one-stop-shop for car audio/video, but you can also find some great car accessories (and non-car accessories!) that can be great stocking stuffers and amazing Christmas gifts! Here are just a few:
 
This amazing car mount uses a motorized clamp that works when the phone is near the infrared sensor. After the phone is placed into the mount, the clamps automatically close to lock the phone firmly in place. It can provide up to 15W of fast-charging power (charging wattage varies by phone type). It has multiple mounts included (air vent mount, suction cup mount, dashboard mounting plate) and its adjustable hooks ensure that your phone stays in place and won’t drop the phone even with the bumpiest road.
 
This is a wireless headphone that has adjustable headphone straps. It has ear pads that fold flat for easy storage and also comes in a hard carry case. It has a mute contro, auto mute function, variable volume control and an on/off switch to save battery life.
 
 
This car air purifier is one of JVC’s newest innovations and works through motion activation. One shake of the hand above the purifier will enter low speed mode, shaking it again will enter high speed mode, and shaking it three times will turn the purifier’s power off. Its shape is the perfect fit into the car’s cup holder and powered using a USB with a DC 5V.
 
Drive Alert is the perfect car accessory to ensure your safety while driving. It has two features that promotes responsible driving -- LDWS or lane departure warning system which uses an advanced camera sensor algorithm to detect lane markings and warn the driver while merging out of the traffic lane, and a FCWS or forward collision warning system that calculates the times of impact of an object in front of the vehicle and if the calculated impact is dangerous, Drive Alert will warn the driver to prevent a collision.
 
 
Another phone mount on the list, the Axxess AXM-SCM is a universal window suction cup device holder that attaches to any windshield. It is fully adjustable and has spring loaded arms to provide secure support of your phone.
 
The third and last phone mount on the list is this InDash 15585 PortaGrip phone holder that has rubberized indexed grips and a foam-backed cradle. It has a ratcheting feet to provide access to the phone’s data ports while it remains on the mount.
 
 
 
This wireless Qi charger (for Qi-enabled phones) enables  to charge your phone without a cable. Connect the included USB cable to an optional 12-volt car charger (not included) and plug in the pad. Simply put the phone in the pad and you can already see the phone charging.
 

The only non-car accessory on the list, the MB Quart QUB2.10301 is a vibrant red wireless Bluetooth speaker that delivers 8 hours of music in a heavy duty rubber case. It is designed to deliver maximum volume and deep bass in a small portable speaker. Its secure simple pairing provides a quick and secure wireless connection between speaker and device. It has noise-cancelling microphones that reduces background noise when making conference calls and its shock-resistant rubber housing makes it perfect for bringing your music nearly anywhere, indoors or outdoors. And not only does it connect to your phone via Bluetooth, but it also can plug into your phone directly via a 3.5mm audio jack.

TIPS FOR BUYING A GOOD CAR BATTERY

Car batteries, like all things, will have their power wear out eventually. However, there are certain key things you need to consider when buying a car battery that will help you make the best purchase possible for your car and make the most out of it.

  • PRICE

As much as it is tempting to buy the most affordable car battery possible, sometimes it will end up costing you more in the long run. Yes, you might be saving maybe $50-$100 buying a more affordable battery compared to a $300-$400 one, but in reality, these batteries have shorter battery life spans that will end up making you buy one every 1-2 years or so compared to a slightly more expensive one that will last you years, especially if you take good care of your car batteries. Research a bit more and save up to purchase a battery that will last you a bit longer, making you save up more money (and avoid the hassle!) in the long run.

 

  •  SIZE

Car batteries do not have a universal size, “one-size-fits-all” kind of situation. Look for a car battery that fits the terminal locations. If the terminals are in the wrong spot then it’s either the car cables wouldn’t be able to reach the battery or they might not be snug enough to fit.  

 

  • MANUFACTURE DATE

Pick the newest car battery, if possible -- or take note of the car battery’s manufacturing date. As a practical tip, buy car batteries that are less than six months old from when they were manufactured.

Another tip is to check a 2-character alphanumeric code on the battery. The first character is a letter from A-L, which represents the 12 months of the year (A is January, B is February and so forth) while the 2nd character is a number from 0 to 9 (0 is 2010, 1 is 2011 and so forth).

 

  • WARRANTY

Choose a car battery with a long free-replacement period. Car battery manufacturers divide their warranties into the free-replacement period and the prorated period. Prorated period is the partial reimbursement of the customer after a certain amount of years if the free-replacement period has already lapsed.

 

  • POWER REQUIREMENT

For those who live in colder temperatures, this should be very important: CCA (cold cranking amps) is a measurement of the ability of the battery to start a car at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Meanwhile, CA (cranking amps) is the energy needed to start a vehicle at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

  • RESERVE CAPACITY

Reserve capacity is to indicate how long the battery can continue to run and operate if the alternator, stator and rotor fails. It is the number of minutes a 12-volt battery can provide a current of 25amps at 80 degrees Fahrenheit without falling below minimum voltage. It is also a measure of how long someone can accidentally leave lights on (battery discharging) and still won’t need a jump-start.

These are just some of the basic tips when choosing a good car battery. Onlinecarstereo.com, aside from being your one-stop shop with car audio/video and accessories, is also an XS Power Authorized Dealer! XS Power specializes in car racing and competition car audio, so you are assured that you’ll be getting a high-performing car battery.

THE EVOLUTION OF BACKUP CAMERAS

Safety features for cars have evolved exponentially in the past decade or so. We have smart safety features like forward collision warnings and automatic emergency brakes to warn us and immediately halt the vehicle when it senses something (or someone!) that it might bump into. However, we have the most basic type of safety feature that all vehicles have nowadays -- and it is the backup camera.

 

The backup camera’s design is very distinct from other cameras because it shows a mirrored image that is flipped horizontally. This makes the orientation consistent with the vehicle’s mirrors. Backup cameras usually are pointed at a downward angle as opposed to straight back to view obstacles on the ground. It is also typically wired to sense when the vehicle transmission is set to reverse. It also typically shows grid guidelines or lines to aid the driver in parking.

 

The first vehicle that had a backup camera installed was a 1956 Buick Centurion Dream car and was presented at a General Motors Motorama in January 1956. A television camera was mounted at the back of the vehicle and the images it recorded were sent to a screen in the dashboard and replaced its rear-view mirror.

 

The first production vehicle to incorporate a backup camera was a 1991 Toyota Soarer Limited that was only available in Japan. It used a color EMV screen with a rear-spoiler-mounted CCD camera.

 

In April 2000, at the 2000 New York International Auto Show, Nissan’s Infiniti luxury division introduced the RearView Monitor on a 2002 Q45 flagship sedan. They introduced colored onscreen guidelines that transmitted a mirrored image on an in-dash LCD screen. In 2002, the Nissan Primera introduced this backup camera system to territories outside North America and Japan.

 

Here in the United States, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that all vehicles sold in the United States that were built from May 2018 onwards are required to include backup cameras. The NHTSA conducted a research and they found out that rearview cameras should be able to prevent around 65 deaths a year once this mandate was implemented. Studies also have shown that backup cameras can reduce the driver’s blind spot by around 90% and it definitely is a big help preventing collisions or crashes.

We have an ongoing promo right now at onlinecarstereo.com where you get a free Boss Elite ELPC40B backup camera when you purchase an in-dash receiver. Isn’t that neat? You get to upgrade your in-dash receiver AND upgrade your backup camera as well! Subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss out on many more of our promotions this Cyber Monday!
