Exciting news on brand new driving sounds website and a fantastic offer for Driving Sounds Club Members.

Christmas Cracker for Car Owning Music Lovers

Welcome to the final bulletin of the the year from Driving Sounds and what a bulletin it is!
In November I happened to mention that my current favourite mid-priced component speakers are the Hertz Energy ESK-165L. I have heard these in a couple of cars one with a subwoofer and more impressively, one without. They reach phenomenally low and provide exceptional mid-bass for the modest £169.99 price tag and if you were not in a position to add a subwoofer to your car due to space or budget, you will be impressed by the rich bass that emanates from the 6.5" woofers. You all went mad for further details on these which was provided via a link to the FOUR MASTERS website. In appreciation of all the interest shown, FOUR MASTERS have kindly agreed to offer a whopping 25% discount on the retail price of these speakers exclusive to Driving Sounds Club members. All you need to do is order online and enter the discount code: DSdecoffer and a pair of these fabulous component speakers will be despatched for collection from your chosen FOUR MASTER.

Issue 4


Another sneaky-peek preview of an article from issue 4. This time, we bring you a stunning Audi RS6 installation carried out by FOUR MASTER; Vehicle Integration People in Northern Ireland. Have a quick squiz (sorry cricket lovers!) and be excited - this is one of the finest installs we have seen to date. N.B. You will need to register to obtain a login for the club page which is where this article sits. This is a good idea anyway, as you are then able to see previous articles and bulletins. This section will also be developed to include video insights including my own car......coming soon! http://www.drivingsounds.co.uk/driving-sounds-club/home/

Techie Bit



By popular demand, this month we are re running a pre-curser to a Driving Sounds magazine article on distortion. Read this even if you have no knowledge of audio or electronics. It provides an extremely helpful insight which could help you when next purchasing audio products.

Brand New Website for Driving Sounds



It's here! Following lots of work in the background, we are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new Driving Sounds website. The new site allows visitors to buy a printed copy of Driving Sounds delivered to their home postage free or pay to download individual articles. Articles for older issues are available to download for free and there is a Club Members only page which carries past issues of these newsletters as well as a full list of our sneaky peeks. Eventually, this will be expanded to include  articles of interest which don't make it into the magazine as well as special insight videos featuring products and installs. Browse the new site: www.drivingsounds.co.uk sign up for the club area here: http://www.drivingsounds.co.uk/driving-sounds-club/

Merry Christmas One and All

I would just like to thank all of you for sticking with the programme this year. We are still planning and developing our ideas to help spread the word to those poor mites out there who think that car audio starts and finishes with the pile of donkey-doo that car manufacturers insist on calling in car entertainment (yes, even their overpriced proprietory labelled upgrades!). We are always interested in your views and thoughts on how we can convince music loving car drivers that a modest investment in upgrading the sound in their cars can give them years of enhanced driving pleasure! You can contact me by email: editorial@drivingsounds.co.uk and I will endeavour to answer any questions or share your thoughts with other club members. I am off to my car to listen to today's ear-worm (for me) the quite sublime; Pretty (Ugly Before) by the sadly departed Elliott Smith 
I hope Santa treats you well.
Best wishes,
Carl
