Rockford Fosgate Power T1 Speakers - Audio And Electronics October 2009

Summer's over and you haven't even started on your projects, right?! Maybe it's fortunate that you procrastinate like you're going to live forever. We got some new gear for you that might inspire you to get back into that oven of a garage. So if you need navigation, some new speakers, a woofer or some wiring for the DIY projects you promised yourself you were going to finish before the end of summer, then lookie here. These products are just as good at twice the price but available for half that.

Rockford Fosgate T1 POWER Speakers
IRockford's known for its power. But they're selling more than power here. It's also about the best sound. By maximizing cone area through VAST (Vertical Attach Surround Technique), Rockford increases output without increasing the overall dimensions of the loudspeaker. POWER component systems also feature treated cloth dome tweeters that connect through audiophile grade component external crossovers boasting a class leading 5% tolerance. The full-range speakers integrate a unique offset cantilever mounted design with 19mm aluminum dome tweeters for enhanced clarity and detail. A wide range of different size speakers are available.
MSRP: Coaxes start at $199.99; component systems at $399.99

Alpine NVE-M300
There are a lot of you with Alpine's new multimedia source units like the the iXA-W404 or IVA-W505. If so, and you don't have the nav hardware for it, then the NVE-M300 GPS Navigation Drive is what you need. It tucks away in the dash and works in tandem with aforementioned head units to provide some direction to your life! The compact drive measures 4-3/8 inches by 4-1/8 inches by 1 inch and comes in a spiffy black box. It features Alpine's OnPoint Advanced GPS Positioning, which ensures accurate positioning even in areas with poor GPS reception, such as tunnels and cities with tall buildings. When hooked up the iXA-W404, the NVE-M300 combo is only $1,000. The iXA-W404 has a 4.3-inch touchscreen and is optimized for iPod and iPhone playback. To step it up to a 7-inch screen plus DVD capability, you can spring for the IVA-W505 for a total cost of $1,550. If it weren't for the depression, that would be cheap!
MSRP: From $1,000-1,550

Orion Wired
Wiring has never been and never will be sexy product, but you can't have an audio system unless you connect things! Directed is marking the 25th anniversary of the Orion brand with a complete re-launch, including the return of the Orion Wired line that features fuses, hardware, amp kits, interconnects and 99% oxygen-free copper wire. The Wired line has something for every car audio enthusiast: from the super-premium XPT series for high-end installs, the premium PRO series, and affordable Orion Wired PERFORMANCE interconnects for entry-level systems. And of course it's all performance matched from the ground up to achieve optimal performance levels with other Orion gear.
MSRP: Varies by application

Sony MEX-BT2700
This is not the top-of-the-line model of Sony's Bluetooth source units, but it offers a lot of the same features and at a more affordable price. With the MEX-BT2700 you get built-in Bluetooth and wireless audio. Plus you can add iPod and HD Radio for more entertainment options. The MEX-BT2700 includes HFP, A2DP and AVRCP Bluetooth(r)5 profile support so you can sync your car stereo with your Bluetooth-enabled devices. It provides 52 watts of peak power to all four speakers for bass-pumping sound, has a front auxiliary input, built-in LPF/HPF (Low Pass Filter/High Pass Filter) for customizing your sound and includes a remote to control the basic functions.
MSRP: $159.99

Kenwood Subwoofers
I love the look of the new KFC-W3012. Kenwood's engineers put a little more effort behind the improved cosmetic design, but more importantly, the woofer also has a shallower mounting depth and longer cone excursion. RMS power is rated at 400 watts with a max peak power of 1,200 watts. The woofer offers silver 8-gauge push-type input terminals, ideal for quick system hookup even with the use of a wider gauge speaker cable. The KFC-W2512 is a 10" subwoofer that is rated at 300 watts (RMS) with a max peak power of 1,000 watts. A 12" dual 4-ohm voice coil version, the KFC-W3012DVC provides multiple impedance options for a wider range of system applications.
MSRP: Ranges from $130-150
