Rockford Fosgate are known for constantly developing their audio to make it better, but not bigger. N20 Audio preview the T600-2, which provides big power in a small package A two-channel amplifier from the Power series, with a cast chassis and many proprietary Rockford Technologies. You can pick these up for around £400, expensive, but the sound quality is massive. Rockford Fosgate have been developing better car audio amplifiers for a long time now and have worked out a lot of stuff to do with the thermodynamics of hardcore car audio use. It has large terminals that can hold up to 4-gauge power cables, and oversized speaker holes too, with a nice shiny black cover over the top to finish the style off. Three lights on the top indicate either 'power on', 'thermal' warning or 'protec
Fli Trap Active 12 Review

Fli Trap Active 12 Review

Products
A box that is everything you need in one for a decent bass element of a sound system? N20 Audio takes a look... This is the Fli Trap Active 12, A 12-inch subwoofer with built-in amplifier. Fli make different sizes of the Trap Active, and there is also a Passive model, a sub and box, but no amplifier. The Active you can pick up around £130 and the Passive around £90. To be honest, it is well worth the extra £40 for the active as you don’t need to find the extra room for the amp. The box itself isn’t really and box as it has curved edges and finished with a lovely grey carpet - most boxes are black so why not be different? The sub itself can come in different shades of grey as Fli are on there 2-series. N20 Audio really likes this product, as it gives a punch in a small hatchback and

N20 Audio looks at an Alpine headunit that can do almost everything you'll need up front in your car... Here we have one of the best-known head unit manufacturers in Alpine bringing us the CDE-173BT. This unit provides sound quality and the convenience of built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, you can pick these up for around the £130-£150 mark. Very impressive for the money how much this head unit can do. The Alpine CDE-173BT CD receiver can play your iPod or Iphone via USB (you have to buy the cable as it is not in the box) and you can control your IPod/Iphone from the stereo control, with the headunit displaying the song names on screen. As this is the BT version it has a hands-free kit, thanks to the power of Parrot Bluetooth with many advanced features (BT Plus) built right into
Vibe Slick C Comps 17cm Speakers

Vibe Slick C Comps 17cm Speakers

Products
N20 Audio reviews the latest 17cm component speakers from well known bass provider - Vibe This is Vibes two-way component speaker at 17cm you can pick these up for around £60. They are stylish, so you can have them on show, and they only have a mounting depth of 58mm allowing you to fit them behind the door card for a standard-look finish. The speakers weigh in at 2.2kg each, which is a good weight for a door speaker, the norm being the heavier it is the more power it will output. At 90 watts of RMS power you could run these comfortably off your headunit, however you could gain double the output power if you hooked to an amp - Vibe recommends the slick A0 /A1. The good thing with this year's Vibes is they have got rid of the centre steel cone, in that version, if you was to connect
