Slamology 2020 update: We are aware of the CDC’s interim guidance suggesting the postponement of events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks. Our priority is to do our part in protecting the public health while still conducting the 17th Annual Slamology Automotive and Music Festival as scheduled on June 13-14, 2020. This continues to be a dynamic situation that we are monitoring constantly in coordination with federal, state, local and public health officials. We are also in close contact with Lucas Oil Raceway and the NHRA. As of right now Slamology 2020 is scheduled after the recommended eight week time frame. However, if the recommendation comes for us to move the June dates we will postpone the event until a later date in 2020. Thank you for your understanding, cover your cough, wash your hands and keep good social distancing. During this unprecedented time in world history please continue to support each other as car enthusiasts, as well as supporting … [Read More...]

It’s a too-often-spread misconception that, in the realm of mobile, home and even pro audio, too much power will blow loudspeakers. Sure, that’s true to a point – you wouldn’t pair, say, a 20,000-watt amplifier that was designed to drive monitors at rock concerts with bookshelf speakers meant to be used in a small apartment or dorm room – but in a general sense, there really is no such thing as “too much power” when it comes to consumer-grade speakers. In fact, we keep telling readers of our articles that the healthiest thing you can do for loudspeakers is to feed them clean, continuous current…which brings us to the flip side of that coin. No, what generally kills speakers and their drivers is distortion caused by insufficient amplification and/or mismatching of components, and in this article we’re going to divulge how you can actually tell if your car audio speakers are blown out. A Primer Did you ever find yourself wondering if you blew one or more of your speakers because … [Read More...]

Scoring Free Shipping Some sellers may offer free shipping as a special promotion during the holiday season, for example. However, you probably don’t want to limit … [Read More...]
