Cool Runnings – VW Bug Shoot

For some reason you can’t call a VW Bug a student car anymore. Why? Because down here in Cape Town they customize anything that is roadworthy approved or that can drive and spin. Look at Dirkie Binneman’s 1972 VW Beetle. This bug affair dated back into the early 2000’s when he laid his hands on his first “Kewer”. His dream was actually to become a BMX rider but faded after an accident he had at one of the competitions. All thanks Westcliff High school for gaining all his knowledge on …

Low is a lifestyle – Sound Off event

I took some time off on Saturday to make a turn at Advanced Audio out in Lansdowne where BassMaster Inc., in conjunction with Team Autopunks, hosted their first “Sound Off” event. It was also the first sound event for 2012 where I was invited to and surely was one banging one. Some pretty impressive numbers, especially Dirk in his blue Uno hitting a 154.74 dB’s with only 2 x 12 inch DD’s.
Also impressive was Nizaam in his black Conquest doing a 149.51 dB’s in Bass boxing, something the whole crowd …

SPL Feature – Bass In Your Face

So deep it Hertz…
I remember when I had my first sound setup in my car, blowing almost all my wages on expensive equipment. The neighbours were complaining and pushing a SPL reading of 140dB’s at a sound off event was impressive. That was then and time has changed, so is the competition and sound equipment.

Dennis Kinnear, from Mitchells Plain in Cape Town, owns a 150 plus dB car. His choice of SPL car is a 1979 Ford Escort mk2. Now for those that don’t know how loud that is, let …
