JBL GTO428 Product Review

The JBL GTO428 4″ 2-Way Speaker Set is a great replacement speaker for cars that come with 4″ speakers from factory! Not only are they a small compact speaker but they sound great too! What amazes me with these little 4″ speakers is how loud they are and even at high volumes they are still so clear and crisp. With a dB sensitivity of 90dB this makes the GTO428‘s perfect to run off a Head-Unit without the need to amp them!

JBL GTO1214 Product Review

The JBL GTO1214 is a really nice sounding 12″ sub-woofer but that is to be expected from a company that has been making speakers for over 60+ years. The GTO1214 has a nice mix of the sound that you would expect from 10″ and 15″ subs, so it is not a bad option if you like the punch of a 10″ and also the low tones from a 15″ sub. It has a single voice coil and is a 4 ohm sub-woofer.  The RMS rating is 350w and can handle 1400w at peak.  The sensitivity rating on the GTO1214 is 90 dB...

Sony XAV-72BT Product Review

The Sony XAV-72BT is a great In-Car Entertainment System with beautiful video quality and absolutely amazing sound quality! The 7″ Touch-Screen with its large touch buttons makes it a breeze to use/navigate its menus and options. Another cool feature is its gesture commands that allows the user to control the unit with a command stroke on the display, which I found to be quite useful. Soon after using the gestures I found it very easy to change songs/albums without even looking at the unit while driving! The Bluetooth on the XAV-72BT also impressed me with its hands-free/audio-streaming which worked without...

Sony MEX-BT4050U Product Review

The Sony MEX-BT4050U is a brilliant Hands-Free Bluetooth Head-Unit that has USB iPod/Phone Control and also a Built-In Mic! I feel the built-in Mic is a great option since not everyone wants to run a Mic from the Head-Unit to your steering column or rear-vison mirror. You do have the option to fit one with the optional XA-MC10 (Sold Separately) if you prefer an external Mic.
