KICKER® BassStation™ Powered Subwoofers Add Legendary Bass in Versatile Applications
STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® has developed and perfected a smart, integrated solution for adding legendary but versatile KICKER bass to any vehicle’s audio system. KICKER BassStation™ Powered Subwoofers combine subs, enclosures and amplifiers in a specifically designed application for optimal bass performance.
With a heavy-duty subwoofer, tough enclosure and digital amplifier operating together as one, the end result is intense. The BassStation is available in a 12-inch dual-woofer box (with a 200-watt amplifier), a 12-inch single-woofer box (with a 100-watt amp), a 10-inch thin-profile box or an 8-inch thin-profile box (both with 100-watt amps). All four models feature a quick-connect Molex power, signal and remote turn-on harness/plug for simple set-up or removal. Once installed, nylon straps with Velcro® help secure the BassStation in place. When hauling space is needed, the enclosure is simply removed by disconnecting the plug and loosening the straps. The PHD12 dual-woofer BassStation weighs 43 pounds, while the PT8 8-inch weighs only 14 pounds.
Plasma Vs LCD Screens, What is Sub Field Drive ?
I found myself asking this question when looking at TV's.. wish they'd make it easier to choose. Having "helpful" sales people isnt really helpful either.. we know they get XX% slice of the pie, so they'll be pushing the $1500 screen over the $800 every single time.
So I started collating my own list of specifications which are comparable ! Inches are inches, Number of HDMI Ports are Numbers, but how about Refresh Rates & Response Times ?
Thats when I came across Sub Field Drive, and its only applicable to plasma, but what does 600hz Sub Field Drive mean? Read on !
