Shallow form with deep bass response - AXTON

AXTON’s subwoofer ATB120

Whichever way you look at it: you always find a place for the new bass box ATB120 from car audio specialist AXTON. The shallow form with 20 cm subwoofer chassis and reflex port is guaranteed to fit into almost any trunk with its practical dimensions: Flat on the floor or hidden in the the double floor, fixed on the side panel or even on the rear seat backrest – you’ll appreciate the extremely small footprint.
The bass reflex box ATB120 is designed for music lovers who do not want to compromise on luggage space or bass power on the road. Of minimal size 13.5 x 48.5 x 34.5 cm, the ATB120 produces enormous bass waves with the greatest of ease, setting an impressive stage for every electro beat, every guitar riff, and every bass drum.
AXTON’s new bass reflex subwoofer is a completely new design whereby the intended purpose, size of the enclosure, practical suitability, and fitting have been perfectly matched. In the solid enclosure there is a powerful 20 cm woofer at work that packs a punch: With a very stiff cone out of a combination of air dried paper and a woven layer of fiber glass with a butyl rubber surround, and a large 2 x 2 ohms 1.5″/38 mm voice coil on a Kapton former, the driver is well equipped to produce powerful bass with a fast attack.
The enclosure is made of MDF and covered with robust felt. To minimize air turbulence the port is flow optimized. The terminal offers various connection options to allow a free choice of amplifier. With the connector the plug and play bass box is quickly connected to the amplifier, and can be removed from the trunk just as fast if required.
The awesome output of 200 watts RMS, outstanding build quality, and the attractive price of 149 Euro make the smart ATB120 a convincing total package for the straightforward implementation of an in-car bass system.

The brand AXTON has been popular with car enthusiasts for almost 30 years. AXTON’s products are regularly recognized in trade magazines for their high price performance ratio. The range includes amplifiers and various loudspeakers for car retrofitting: component and coaxial systems, bass boxes, and also compact under seat woofers.

Antec GX200: affordable Quiet Computing housing for classical gamers

Antec GX200 BLUE

Antec is presenting the GX200, an entry level, whisper-silent housing with an excellent price-performance ratio for gamers. This latest Midi Tower from the Californian hardware manufacturer combines a lavishly dimensioned interior with an appealing design. It is a symbiosis of quality and functionality in a sturdy and well-conceived housing. With the GX200, building up a professional gaming system is done in no time at all. The housing does come completely in black. Its distinctive front grill additionally improves air circulation and will light up in red or blue depending on the model version. The transparent side panel of the product versions GX200 RED and GX200 BLUE grants a great view on all the installed components and will make every setup look simply marvellous.

Lots of space and sophisticated cable-management

Mainboards of the sizes Standard-ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ATX fit into the GX200 as well as numerous drives: The compartments offer space for one 5.25, one 2.5 and four 3.5 inch drives. An optimized cable-management behind the mainboard with sensibly arranged channels guarantees a tidy interior of the gaming PC. The maximum height for CPU fans is 158 Millimetres. The easy mounting of a cooler with a back plate is possible thanks to a large space in the mainboard support.

Lavish configuration and optimized cooling
The Antec GX200 has been prepared for the installation of up to three 120 Millimetre fans. One standard fan has already been mounted at the rear. In the versions GX200 RED and GX 200 BLUE, two 120 Millimetre fans have already been mounted at the front. The convenient upper compartment also offers space for additional equipment as well as mobile devices, which need to be easily accessible. USB 3.0 connectivity for lightning-fast data transmission is available at all times thanks to the front panel connections.

Bargain price, beautiful colour versions, availability
The Antec GX200 is a great Midi Tower housing for classical gaming PCs – and yet very affordable: The GX200 with closed side panel is available at an MSRP of 39.99 Euros including VAT.

Hardware Update: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Nissan 370Z by Mods4cars

The aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars for the Nissan 370Z Roadster now ships with a new product enclosure.

Hardware Update: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Nissan 370Z by Mods4cars

SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Nissan 370Z by Mods4cars

Las Vegas, Nevada – July 2nd, 2015

Automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars has upgraded the product enclosure for the SmartTOP add-on convertible top controller modules. Just in time for the convertible top season
2015 the module for the Nissan 370Z Roadster has received the new, custom designed enclosure. The new shape and size of the module is not only slimmer and more esthetic looks wise, it also makes installation a lot easier.

Due to the smaller size it can be mounted in tighter spaces in the car and two integrated LEDs indicate when the module was installed correctly. The new enclosure also uses a lot less plastic and no more screws. This makes the product more environmentally friendly overall.

The SmartTOP kits make using the convertible top easier and more fun. They allow drivers to open and close the top with one-touch convenience and while driving at slow speeds of up to 40 km/h (~28 mph). It is no longer necessary to hold down the switch for the duration of the operation. A quick tap is enough to start a full automatic open or close cycle.

Additionally it is possible to control the top from a distance, using just the original factory key fob remote. A quick key combination on the remote triggers automatic opening or closing of the top. Users can select if they want windows up or down after opening the top. No changes are needed to be made to the original fobs or receiver system.

Apart from these two main features SmartTOP comes with a few bonus features, all of which can be individually configured to taste. The windows can be controlled separately from the top by remote for example and all windows can be closed at once with the console switch.

A chirp feature is built in that can, if desired, give a short audible confirmation when locking or unlocking the car. Doors can be auto-locked while driving and hazard flashers can be activated during remote operation. An extended mode allows turning the engine on or off while the top continues to run and the entire module can be disabled temporarily, if needed, while retaining all user settings for when it is re-enabled later.

The kit comes with a plug-in-between wiring adapter for easy installation. The module itself is equipped with a USB port for configuration and firmware updates. Support software as well as firmware updates are available free of charge online.

Mods4cars has been offering SmartTOP kits since 2001. The following popular brands are supported: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

The SmartTOP kit for Nissan 370Z Roadster is available for 249 Euros + tax.

About Mods4cars:

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

P50 WINDOW: Whisper-quiet enclosure for gaming computers with spacious, yet compact cube layout

P50 WINDOW: Whisper-quiet enclosure for gaming computers with spacious, yet compact cube layout

Antec’s cube-shaped Quiet Computing enclosure P50 WINDOW is available.

Rotterdam, the Netherlands, June 16th 2015 – Antec“s P50 WINDOW is the perfect combination of compactness and optimal airflow due to its sophisticated two-compartment architecture. The cube-shaped case with its dimensions of 312(H) x 260(W) x 330(D) mm features a two-compartment design that separates the power supply unit, the optical drive and the hard drives from the other components. Accordingly, the included fans (2 x 120mm and 1 x 80mm) offer more efficient cooling than within ordinary enclosures due to the fact that they are focussed on parts that heat up during operation.

Quiet Computing due to dual-layer side panels
Numerous routing holes in the central dividing wall offer various possibilities for a clean cable layout, ensuring an ideal airflow through the cube-shaped enclosure of the P50 WINDOW. The dual-layer side panels made from Polycarbonate eliminate vibrations from within the chassis and render the Antec P50 WINDOW whisper-quiet – even with up to seven rotating fans. The cube-layout of the enclosure features mounts for four more fans (2 x 80mm at the back and 2 x 120mm at the top) in addition to three included cooling fans at the front.

Small cube with ample space
The cube-shaped chassis is compatible with Micro ATX and Mini ITX mainboards. Despite its compact dimensions, the P50 WINDOW offers space for cards up to lengths of 300mm in its four PCI-E slots. This makes Antec“s enclosure a great choice for demanding gamers who can fit high-end graphics cards such as the ATI R9 290 and the Nvidia GTX 960 within the Quiet Computing chassis. The maximum support height for the CPU cooler is 130mm. The mount for the optical drive can be removed to allow the installation of a water-cooling system with two radiators up to 240mm.

Compact, convenient and functional
To offer generous hard-disk space, numerous mounts are available. Two 2.5″ SSDs and three 3.5″ HDDs can be installed in the Antec P50 WINDOW without using any tools. One of the two compartments can be fitted with an ATX power supply unit that is kept dust-free by an air filter at the back of the enclosure. Another filter prevents dust from getting in at the front. Both are washable and reliably keep the P50 WINDOW clean. All four walls of the chassis can be removed to grant quick access to all components, making maintenance quick and easy. The front panel features two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports as well as connections for speakers and microphones. Another highlight of the P50 WINDOW is the fan control at the front: With two switches, the fans inside the compact enclosure can be adjusted in steps.

Antec“s cube-shaped Quiet Computing enclosure P50 WINDOW is available, the recommended retail price is 74.99 euros including VAT. Top panels (meshs) are available as optional accessories in colours blue, green, red and white at 9.99 Euro including VAT each.

Signature Series S10: Antec is raising the bar for computer housings in terms of materials, manufacturing and design

Antec is presenting the most high-end housing ever released by the Californian specialist for computer hardware. The new Signature series is raising the bar for computer housings in terms of manufacturing quality, design and technology.

Signature Series S10: Antec is raising the bar for computer housings in terms of materials, manufacturing and design

The Signature Series S10 is made of brushed Aluminium.

Rotterdam, the Netherlands, June 1st 2015 – Antec is presenting the new S10, an extravagant premium tower and the first product of the all-new Signature series, meant to take the computer housings market by storm. Antec is taking the process of designing a computer housing to a whole new level, for example with the careful choice of high-class materials like brushed Aluminium for the side panels or the application of revolutionary new techniques like the sophisticated three chambered chassis for optimum heat management. Having won the specialists from Astro as design partners, the S10 made by Antec is not only outstanding in appearance but also a highly complex yet functional device.

„We engaged with Astro to help us create a living, functional piece of art,“ says Antec General Manager Frank Lee. „The Signature Series is meant to be an inspiration for creation. Every computer can be a foundation to create the most insightful technologies and beautiful works of art, and we felt the series should embody that spirit.“

Revolutionary three chambered chassis provides excellent air circulation
The three chambered chassis provides a revolutionary solution for channelling and transferring hot air out of the cabinet while producing only a minimum of noise. The housing offers exclusive compartments for the drives, the power supply and the mainboard to prevent the single components from heating up each other. All compartments are connected via an innovative airlock equipped with fine-meshed, washable air filters. This design concept enables the ventilating fans to dismiss heat efficiently from the top downwards of the housing, making the S10 not only stay perfectly cool but noiseless as well.

Noiseless cooling thanks to centrally aligned air circulation channel
The Signature Series S10 is equipped with a total of seven ventilating fans. Two 140-mm fans and four 120-mm fans are taking care of cooling the mainboard compartment. One 120-mm fan is ventilating the compartment for the drives and one additional fan can be installed to help cooling the power supply compartment. The mounts of the ventilating fans can be detached to make installation as easy and convenient as possible. Thanks to the central air circulation channel, all the components will stay cool with hardly any noticeable work of the ventilating fans. Alternatively, the S10 can be equipped with up to three water-cooling systems. The housing offers enough space for radiators of 120mm, 280mm and 360mm. By using the six rubberised tubes, a clean and organised cable management is possible, further optimising the air circulation within the cabinet.

„We redesigned how air flows inside the case by isolating components based on their heat generation,“ said Product Development Director Han Liu. „By moving core components around, we increased airflow while effectively managing the system“s heat. This dramatically lowered its energy use, making the Signature Series quieter and more environmentally friendly.“

Top gaming performance with up to four graphics cards in SLI-mode
The S10 Tower features ten expansion slots and is compatible with the mainboard formats SSI CEB, E-ATX, ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ATX. Up to four graphic cards with a maximum length of 330mm can be operated simultaneously in SLI-mode to offer enough performance for even the most demanding gaming setups. The oversized CPU opening (219mm x 149mm) grants easy access for installing additional high-class heat sinks. In the compartment for the drives and the power supply, up to eight 2.5″ SSDs und six 3.5″ HDDs can be installed to prevent shortage of memory capacity once and for all. The chambers for the drives have been processed with silicon to neutralise vibrations; installation of a hard disk is a matter of minutes and does not need any tools at all. The I/O panel at the top of the housing is equipped with four USB 3.0 ports to guarantee highest transmission rates to and from external devices. A shortened 5.25″ chamber is available to additionally install controls for the ventilating fans, a card reader or other devices.

The extravagant and high-class debutant of Antecs Signature series will be available in stores July 2015 at a MSRP of 399.99 GBP/549 EUR including VAT.

Hardware Upgrade: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Volkswagen EOS by Mods4cars

Hardware Upgrade: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Volkswagen EOS by Mods4cars

Hardware Upgrade: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for Volkswagen EOS by Mods4cars

The aftermarket SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller made by Mods4cars for Volkswagen EOS now comes equipped with a new module enclosure. Among other features, the SmartTOP module allows one-touch operation of the convertible top while driving at slow speeds as well as controlling the top from the original factory key fob remote.

Las Vegas, Nevada – May 24th, 2014

Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars revamped the design of the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules. Just in time for the upcoming convertible season 2014 the SmartTOP module for Volkswagen EOS received the facelift product enclosure. The enclosure was exclusively and custom designed by Mods4cars for this product.

„The new design is not just an improvement in esthetics. It also makes installation much easier for our customers“ says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. The new enclosure houses two LEDs that show current status, correct connections or trouble codes during installation. „Additionally the new SmartTOP enclosure is 30% smaller in volume and slimmer. Therefore it can be installed a lot easier in tight spaces.“ Sven Tornow continues.

„We are happy to announce that we were able to make installation of our SmartTOP aftermarket kit for the VW EOS easier yet again.“ Sven Tornow concludes. A while back the outfit introduced a plug-and-play wiring adapter. This adapter was also custom designed and allows installing the module by simply connecting a few plugs with the car electronics. It uses perfect fit connectors with secure latches to ensure a tight fit while preventing any kind of wrong connection.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Control module for Volkswagen EOS allows owners to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds (user programmable up to 44 km/h / 28mph) using convenient one-touch operation. It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold down the top switch. SmartTOP customers get both hands back on the steering wheel a lot faster.

Additionally it is possible to control the top from a distance by just using the supplied factory remote fobs. Walking toward their EOS, customers can already start opening the top and drive off with the top down. Sudden rainfall is no longer a reason to run to the car, instead the top can be conveniently closed from a distance.

Along with these two main features there is a host of bonus features present in the module, all of which are user programmable. It is possible to separately control the windows from the remote, activate a quick chirp signal when locking or unlocking the car and the hazard blinkers can be activated during remote operation.

The direction of the top switch can be reversed and it is possible to override the trailer lockout and use the top with attached trailer. A park assist feature lowers the passenger mirror when in reverse and starting or stopping the engine will not stop an ongoing top operation when in extended mode. The entire module can also be temporarily disabled while retaining all user settings.

All features can be configured and the product can be updated via USB connection and PC/Mac computer software available free of charge online. Updates for the product firmware are also free of charge for the life of the product.

The SmartTOP kit for Volkswagen EOS is available for 249 Euro + tax.

Kits are also available for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.

About Mods4cars:

Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

SmartTOP Convertible Top products for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLK receive design refresh

SmartTOP Convertible Top products for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLK receive design refresh

SmartTOP Convertible Top products for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLK receive design refresh

The SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers made by Mods4cars allow owners to open or close the top while driving at slow speeds with just a quick tap as well as fully automatically from the original key fob remote. Effective immediately all modules for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLK Convertibles come equipped with the new product enclosure.

Las Vegas, Nevada – March 26th, 2014

The add-on SmartTOP Convertible Top Controllers offered by aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars are meant to simplify operation of the top. They make it possible for owners of Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLK convertibles to use the center console top switch while the car is moving at slow speeds. All that is needed is a quick tap on the switch to trigger full automatic „one-touch“ operation. It is neither necessary to stop and pull over, nor does the switch have to be held down for the duration of the operation.

Additionally, the SmartTOP module allows top operation from the original key fob remote with one-touch convenience. After using a quick button combination on the key fob, the top opens or closes fully automatically. No changes are necessary to the original key fob transmitters or receiver system.

Next to these two main features the SmartTOP add-on kits for E-Class and CLK convertibles offer a host of bonus features: The windows can be opened or closed from the remote and independently from the top. All windows can be opened or closed one-touch style from the console switch. The hazard flashers can be activated during remote top operation and it is possible to activate a short audible confirmation sound when locking and unlocking the car (CLK only). On both models top and window operation from the remote is possible up to the full RF range of the remote. All features are individually programmable and adjustable to taste. An extended mode even allows starting or stopping the engine during an ongoing top operation. The entire module can be temporarily disabled while retaining all user configurable settings.

„We constantly work on improving our existing products“, says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. „We are always happy to implement new features as a result of customer inquiries.“ But not only software is being improved on continually. Recently the enclosure of the intelligent top opener was completely redesigned. Effective immediately all SmartTOP kits for Mercedes-Benz E-Class and CLK Convertibles come equipped with the new enclosure.

The new product enclosure was designed and developed exclusively by Mods4cars for the use case at hand. It is slimmer and more streamlined and can be installed in tighter spots in the car. Use of less plastic and omission of screws also make it a better choice for the environment. Two LEDs now offer an unparalleled level of status and diagnostics information during installation. To make installation extremely simple, the SmartTOP kits also come with plug-and-play wiring adapters which simply connect the module to the vehicle electronics. User programmable settings can be adjusted via clear text in-dash menu or via USB setup and support software available for Windows and Mac.

SmartTOP kits are available for Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.

Current pricing for these Mercedes-Benz SmartTOP kits starts at just 249 Euros + tax.

SmartTOP Convertible Top Control Module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder available soon

The SmartTOP aftermarket Convertible Top Control Module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will be available soon. The add-on kit allows using the top with one-touch convenience while driving at slow speeds as well as controlling the top and windows from the original key fob remote. It is possible to reverse the direction in which the console top switch needs to be pushed or pulled.

Las Vegas, Nevada – March 11th, 2014

Aftermarket automotive specialist Mods4cars, manufacturer of the add-on SmartTOP kits, just announced that the new module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will be available within the next couple of weeks. „We are happy to be able to bring our signature convenience features to owners of Lamborghini Gallardo owners very soon. In addition to the main features we were able to integrate a lot of extra functionality that makes owning the convertible so much more fun.“ says PR-Manager Sven Tornow.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top modules allow drivers to open and close the top while driving at slow speeds and with one-touch convenience. It is no longer necessary to pull over and hold down the switch for the duration of the operation. The top may be used up to a user programmable speed of 40km/h (~28mph). Thanks to the one-touch feature it is not necessary to keep holding the switch down. A quick tap is enough to start full automatic top operation.

Additionally the top can be operated from the original factory remote key fob. This allows owners to lower the top while still approaching the car. The top can also be closed fully automatically while walking away or from afar at the first sign of impending rainfall. No changes are necessary to the original keys or receiver system.

The SmartTOP module for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder also offers a host of bonus features. A highlight is the ability to reverse the direction of the center console switch. Instead of pulling to lower and pushing to raise the top, the direction can be reversed to work in a much more intuitive way, if desired.

More features are available, all of which can be user configured according to taste. The windows can be activated by remote independently from the top, a chirp feature gives off brief horn signals upon locking or unlocking the car, hazard blinkers can be activated during remote top operation. An extended mode allows owners to even start or stop the engine while the top continues full automatic operation. It is also possible to temporarily disable the entire module while retaining all other settings.

Every SmartTOP module can be configured and updated via the integrated USB port and available support software for PC and Mac. Software and product firmware updates are available online, free of charge.

The SmartTOP Convertible Top kit for Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder will be equipped with the new, custom designed Mods4cars product enclosure. This custom designed plastic shell was specifically designed for the SmartTOP product, is very sleek and slim and offers perfect protection for the embedded connectors and LEDs. A plug and play wiring harness is also part of the kit. It allows a very quick installation of the module by simply connecting a few plugs with the car electronics.

Mods4cars offers kits for the following popular brands: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volvo and VW.
