Секвестр автозвука

 

Еще недавно автовладельцы не слишком-то задумывались о том, сколько стоит обслуживание их машин. Однако наступивший кризис заставил многих экономнее относиться к своим тратам. Одной из статей расходов, на которых можно неплохо выгадать, является установка автозвука

Спрос  упал 

Конечно, мы далеки от того, чтобы советовать вам полностью отказаться от установки аудиосистемы. В конце концов, мы ещё пока не голодаем! Но все же будет нелишним узнать, как сэкономить на автозвуке, но при этом не сильно потерять в качестве. Тем более что это, оказывается, вполне возможно. 

Традиционно все автомобильные акустические системы делятся на три большие группы: бюджетные, средней ценовой категории и дорогие. Конечно, разделение это носит весьма условный характер, и не всегда цена является определяющим моментом. Аналогичные по уровню аудиокомпоненты от разных производителей могут занимать разные ценовые ниши. Тем не менее, у продавцов car-audio принята такая классификация: системы стоимостью до шести тысяч рублей относят к бюджетным, от шести до пятнадцати тысяч – к средним, а свыше пятнадцати тысяч рублей – к дорогим системам. 
 
За последние годы в Новосибирске сложилась достаточно четкая иерархия спроса. Наиболее востребованными были системы средней ценовой категории. Далее, с небольшим отставанием, шли бюджетные варианты, остаток рынка делили между собой дорогие аудиосистемы с большими широкими дисплеями, DVD и прочими специальными возможностями. Не изменилась ситуация и после наступления кризиса – в лидерах по-прежнему остаются не самые дорогие, но и не самые дешевые аудиосистемы.

Про альтернативные браузеры
Здравствуйте!

Немного оффтопик, но для хорошей цели.
Если это протеворечит правилам вашего сообщества - пожалуйста извините и сотрите.

Для тех, кто не знает, что такое Интернет Эксплорер - это программа, через которую вы выходите в интернет. Проще говоря - браузер. Синяя иконка с буквой "е".

Пользователи Opera, Firefox, Safari и других браузеров не на движке ИЕ могут сразу читать последние абзацы.

Если вы до сих пор пользуетесь Internet Explorer, вы должны понимать, что постоянно находитесь под угрозой. Ие устроен так, что с его помощью намного проще получить вредоносные и раздражающие программы на свой компьютер. Помимо проблем с безопасностью, ИЕ не поддерживает передовые технологии и стандарты, что сказывается на качестве сайтов и их разработке. В итоге страдают обычные пользователи. Также, ИЕ намного менее функционален чем бесплатные аналоги.

Так почему-же вы до сих пор используете его? Переходите-же на качественные программы!

Альтернативные браузеры бесплатны, они быстрее, безопаснее, умнее, удобнее, красивее чем Internet Explorer. Кроме того, они намного более гибко-настраиваемые.

Не бойтесь, все ваши закладки, пароли, весь журнал - все сохранится при установке нового браузера, ничего не пропадет. Вы быстро привыкните к новому браузеру, ведь к хорошему сразу привыкают и вам не захочется возвращаться к старому и хромому IE.

Если вы не верите в дырявость Internet Explorer - попробуйте зайти на эту страницу: http://bcheck.scanit.be/bcheck/index.php (это тест на уязвимости браузера).

Преимущества бесплатных альтернатив вы почувствуете уже вскоре после установки нового браузера.
Скачать безопасный, удобный и быстрый браузер можно здесь: http://noie.ru/choose/

Если у вас есть вопросы, проблемы - пишите на admin@noie.ru, постараемся помочь вам.

Для тех, кто уже использует альтернативные браузеры и не любит IE - блог нашего проекта: http://noie.ru/blog .
Если вы не любите ИЕ - напишите в свой блог о его проблемах и почему стоит использовать альтернативный браузер. Если у вас есть идеи для сотрудничества - пишите на admin@noie.ru.
Кстати приглашаю вас в сообщество http://community.livejournal.com/ru_noie/

Oh, This Cursed Ograbme: Embargo-Buster Makes Our Life Easier, Outs New Wrangler

“Jesus,” I said to Spinelli. “The Dicks are a poor substitute for romance.”

“Most proto-punk is,” he replied.

“Yeah, but it’s also the next-best thing.”

Press embargoes, likewise, are jack-shit when compared to anticipatory makeouts and flirty eye-contact over overly-spicy Thai food that lands you in a stupid-comfy hotel bed watching amateur pro-wrestling on public-access cable and wondering where all of this is is going. Watching doughy James Hetfield look-alikes roll around on a lightly-padded community-center floor could be akin to watching the war between the internetters and the public-relationsers. Anyway, here’re leaked shots of the new four-door Wrangler thingy. We didn’t break the embargo. We didn’t start the fire. We’re turning off the Billy Joel now and going back to cranking the Dicks. Poor substitute for romance or not, at least they rock.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler

2007 Jeep Wrangler RubiconThe Jeep Wrangler is “the Jeep.” In look and function a replica of the original Army Jeeps that helped to liberate so many people and nations in World War II, the Wrangler remains an icon, the one Jeep that all others derive their reputation from. Each new redesign is controversial because it is beloved and respected by so many, and woe unto those who would change it too far - for example, by adding a fully independent suspension or square headlights.

Fortunately, this time around, Jeep seems to have really done it right. Off-road capability is increased with better ground clearance, larger wheels and tires (long demanded), enhanced Dana front and rear solid axles, available next-generation Command-Trac® and Rock-Trac™ transfer cases, new electric axle lockers, and an electronic disconnecting front sway bar that greatly increases wheel travel over rocks or other irregular surfaces. Meanwhile, on-road performance, always a problem for Wranglers, has been improved with a 100% stiffer frame (in bending), a two inch longer wheelbase, 3 and a half inch wider track, lower spring rates, advanced shock tuning, and increased jounce and rebound travel.

The interior is larger, with 4.6 inches more hip and 5.1 inches more shoulder room combined with additional 2 inches in couple, 1 inch in rear-seat leg room and 2 inches behind rear seat. There are also more open-air options, with dozens of different door, top and windshield combinations; new three-piece modular hardtop and innovative Sunrider™ soft top. The ancient and beloved 190 horsepower straight-six has been replaced with a new 3.8 liter V6 with 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque.

Safety has been increased with Electronic Stability Program (ESP), electronic roll mitigation, dual-stage air bags, seat-mounted side air bags and Occupant Classification System (OCS), while convenience has been heightened with available power windows and door locks, full-screen navigation system, and a 368-watt Alpine® stereo.

Steve Kasher, who was present at the NAIAS introduction, wrote:

The new Wrangler may not be a surprise to most here but its character has been shift both in definition and status. Whereas the outgoing TJ, like the YJ before it, had a bit of jauntiness to it (the belt line sat fairly low) the new TK Wrangler takes a more primal look, made somewhat brutal in rock-crushing Rubicon trim. The specs on the new Wrangler are available elsewhere in Allpar, so I won't repeat. But the no-excuse disposition of the line seems to become even more so in this new version. It now impresses you with less crudity and more purpose, as if to tell competitors that this is and continues to be the ultimate hill climber.

Some dislike the new front with the slanting grille, but those people have not seen it in person, and we will reserve judgement.

What about the four door?

It’s possible that Jeep will start making two separate types of Wranglers, each with associated vehicles such as pickups, with two different frame lengths (as it has done in the past) — one for two door and one for four door Wranglers. The two door Wrangler has been shown; the four door has not, but we expect it to appear in New York. We’ve been told to look for mini-Rescue styling.

2007 Jeep Wrangler details

jeep 4x4Offered in three models – Wrangler X, Sahara and Rubicon – the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is lean, rugged and simple, achieving best-in-class off-road capability while delivering a true open-air driving experience.  With solid axles, removable doors, exposed hinges, a fold-down windshield and innovative removable and convertible tops, Jeep Wrangler retains the brand’s coveted core values of freedom, adventure, mastery and authenticity.

With dozens of different top, door and windshield combinations, nine unique exterior colors and available 16-, 17-, or 18-inch wheels, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler provides a customized appearance for a variety of customers.

From ground clearance to articulation to traction, Jeep engineers focused on more than 50 functional objectives during development of the 2007 Jeep Wrangler.  The result is the ultimate “out-of-the-box” off-road vehicle with all the necessary features to “go anywhere and do anything.”

“Reengineered and redesigned from the ground up, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is the most capable Wrangler in its 65-year history,” said Mike Donoughe, Vice President – Body-on-frame Product Team.  “With more ground clearance, better wheel articulation and advanced off-road hardware, Jeep Wrangler is designed to tackle the toughest off-road obstacles.”

Improved ground clearance, combined with short front and rear overhangs, enables the 2007 Jeep Wrangler to navigate the world’s most challenging off-road trails, especially severe inclines.  A boulder-friendly approach angle of 44.3 degrees and breakover angle of 25.4 degrees, along with a 40.4 degree departure angle, once again make the 2007 Jeep Wrangler the most formidable off-roader.

Providing unmatched wheel articulation and durability, Jeep Wrangler X and Sahara models feature an enhanced Dana 30 front axle and Dana 35 rear axle.  For the 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model – and optional with the trailer tow package on all models – heavy-duty front and rear axles are both Dana 44s, which feature numerous improvements.  Providing significant underbody protection are three skid plates – protecting the fuel tank, transfer case and automatic transmission oil pan.

removeable top

For the first time, Jeep Wrangler offers an electronic-disconnecting front stabilizer bar – Active Sway Bar System (ASBS) – delivering additional wheel travel for traversing the toughest trails.  As a result, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler boasts a 652 Ramp Travel Index (RTI — a measurement of a vehicle’s suspension articulation) with the front stabilizer bar engaged and an 832 RTI with the front stabilizer bar disconnected – a 28 percent increase.

Jeep Wrangler X and Sahara models feature the second-generation Command-Trac® NV241, part-time, two-speed transfer case, featuring a 2.72:1 low-range gear ratio.  In addition, a Trac-Lok® limited-slip rear differential provides extra torque and grip during low-traction situations, such as driving over sand, gravel, snow or ice.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon model features an Off-Road Rock-Trac™ NV241 two-speed transfer case with a 4.0:1 low-range gear ratio, as well as electric front- and rear-axle lockers and 32-inch B.F. Goodrich Off-Road tires.

More On-road Refinement

2007 jeep wranglersWhile improving its legendary 4x4 Jeep capability, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler offers enhanced on-road comfort due to an 100 percent stiffer frame in bending, 50 percent stiffer body, refined five-link coil suspension, improved shock tuning, 2-inch longer wheelbase and 3.5-inch wider track.  In addition, new steering and suspension geometry provides precise ride and handling characteristics, and new sound-deadening techniques reduce cabin noise by more than 20 percent.

“The 2007 Jeep Wrangler reaches new levels of on-road ride, handling and refinement – an achievement realized while also boosting its off-road capability,” said Donoughe.  “The new suspension enables the Wrangler to corner flatter with less lateral motion, provide better on-center steering feel, and even more effectively absorb on-road bumps and cracks.”

Ride balance in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is more refined, achieving less body lean when cornering and braking.  In addition, lower suspension spring rates provide a softer, more comfortable on-road ride.  Standard on the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is an Electronic Stability Program (ESP), which aids the driver in maintaining vehicle directional stability in severe driving maneuvers on any type of surface.  ESP features three modes – “full on,” “full off” and “partial on.”

Standard on the 2007 Jeep Wrangler X model, low-pressure twin-tube shock absorbers are tuned to provide improved balance between jounce and rebound motions, achieving an extremely responsive suspension.  Jeep Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models feature standard high-pressure monotube shocks, utilizing Low Speed Tunable (LST) valve technology.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s new recirculating-ball steering configuration features a robust cross-car steering linkage system, providing the stiffest possible steering linkage in a solid-axle vehicle, for a precise “rack-and-pinion” feel.

More Interior Space and Comfort

inside the jeep wranglerThe 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s interior is designed to offer new features and functionality, increase passenger comfort and improve ergonomics.  The spacious interior is athletic and durable, featuring a new instrument panel and center stack, and new high-back front bucket seats.

Interior volume provides significantly more passenger space, versatility and cargo storage.  Featuring a front-seat area with 54.6 cu. ft. of space – an increase of 4.8 cu. ft. – the 2007 Jeep Wrangler provides 5.1 inches more shoulder room and 4.6 inches more hip room. 

New front seats are sculpted and conform to the body, and a driver’s seat height adjuster is available for optimized seat position and comfort.  Jeep Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models feature cloth seats with YES Essentials fabric – an easy-care, soil-repellant and anti-microbial textile that protects seats from stains, odors and discoloration.

Rear seats comfortably accommodate two adults with 3.9 inches more shoulder room, 1.6 inches more hip room, 1 inch more leg room and a 2-inch greater couple than the 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s predecessor.  A fold-and-tumble feature allows rear seats to be conveniently stowed for additional storage capacity.

Two more inches of space behind the rear seat nearly doubles the cargo capacity of the 2007 Jeep Wrangler.  The extra space provides room for a new lockable underfloor storage area, which secures small items out of sight in the rear cargo area.

An all-new, three-piece modular hard top system features three panels – left- and right-front passenger panels and a rear panel – providing more options for open-air driving in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler.  Removing the left- and right-front passenger panels is simple and may be accomplished quickly by one person.

Also available in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is the innovative Sunrider™ soft top, which includes a “sun roof” feature in addition to the full top-down option.  This soft top provides a second open-air option by folding the soft top back completely over the driver and front passenger to create a 52x30-inch sun roof opening — larger than any typical glass sun roof.

New, More Powerful Engine

A new 3.8-liter overhead valve V-6 engine is featured on all 2007 Jeep Wrangler models, replacing the 4.0-liter Power-Tech in-line six engine.  With 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, Jeep Wrangler comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission or an available four-speed automatic transmission.

The 3.8-liter V-6 engine produces more horsepower and torque than its predecessor.  Compared to the 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, the 3.8-liter is lighter and shorter, and maintains higher torque at speeds above 3400 rpm, allowing for an expanded operating range.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler’s horsepower and torque, combined with an enhanced suspension, results in a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs.  For the first time in a Jeep Wrangler, an optional towing package includes Dana 44 axles with a 4.10 axle ratio and trailer hitch.

“Not Afraid to Get Dirty” Jeep Design

seatsThe 2007 Jeep Wrangler continues Wrangler’s legacy as the icon of the Jeep brand.  With its distinguished “form equals function” design, it is clearly recognizable as the original Jeep.

“The task of designing the 2007 Jeep Wrangler meant creating a modern design for one of the world’s greatest automotive icons,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President – Design.  “The 2007 Jeep Wrangler design is rugged, yet simple, maintaining its heritage while also communicating a new level of capability and versatility.

“Improved quality, passenger comfort and, most importantly, off-road capability, are a direct result of Jeep Wrangler’s functional design,” added Creed.

While staying true to the original formula, Jeep Wrangler’s appearance is modern and precise, with clean, crisp lines and improved fit and finish.  Wrangler-signature “must-have” features are refined, including classic round headlamps, a signature seven-slot grille, trapezoid wheel flares, exposed forged hinges, a fold-down windshield, sport bar, removable tops and doors, available full-framed or half doors, and hard and soft tops.

The 2007 Jeep Wrangler is 5.5 inches wider overall, taking on a brawnier appearance.  The body features new sheet metal with a slight crown, providing a strong and robust presence. 

More Stopping Power

New 16-inch four-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes are standard on all 2007 Jeep Wrangler models.  An off-road anti-lock-braking feature enables sustained wheel lockup for improved performance on plowable surfaces, including loose dirt, gravel, sand and mud.

All 2007 Jeep Wrangler models incorporate larger wheels and tires than previous Wrangler models.  Standard 16-inch wheels on the Wrangler X model and 17-inch wheels on the Wrangler Sahara and Rubicon models are new for 2007.  In addition, 18-inch wheels – a Wrangler first – are optional on Wrangler Sahara.

More Safety and Security Features

Like all Jeep vehicles, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is designed to improve not only handling and accident avoidance, but also to provide protection.  Jeep Wrangler includes the highest level of safety features ever offered in the vehicle’s history – to provide customers the ability to safely “go anywhere, do anything.”

“The 2007 Jeep Wrangler offers customers peace of mind with significantly more standard safety equipment than Wrangler has ever offered,” said Donoughe.  “Whether on- or off-road, Jeep Wrangler provides both passive and active safety systems that enhance vehicle stability and provide the highest levels of occupant protection.”

Following are available safety and security features in the 2007 Jeep Wrangler:

  • Advanced Multi-stage Air Bag System: This system inflates with a force appropriate to the severity of an impact. It includes the occupant classification system (OCS)
  • Anti-lock-braking System: Electronic sensors help detect impending wheel lockup. The ABS system offers improved steering control under extreme braking and/or slippery conditions
  • Brake Assist: The vehicle senses a panic brake condition and applies maximum braking power, providing the shortest possible stopping distance
  • Child Seat Anchor System: Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren (LATCH) make it easier to install compatible aftermarket child seats in the rear seat
  • Energy-absorbing Steering Column: Manual-adjust collapsing steering column includes two hydroformed coaxial tubes that move relative to each other, which allows the column to move forward and provide more energy absorption during an impact
  • Electronic Stability Program (ESP): ESP aids the driver in maintaining vehicle directional stability, providing oversteer and understeer control to maintain vehicle behavior on various road surfaces. This feature has three settings, allowing the driver more control over the vehicle during spirited driving
  • Electronic Roll Mitigation: A system that observes and monitors the vehicle roll attitude and lateral force to estimate the potential for a rollover situation. If necessary, the engine torque is reduced and a short burst of full braking is applied to the appropriate wheel to help stabilize the vehicle attitude and reduce the vehicle’s lateral force
  • Occupant Classification System (OCS): Measures conditions for activation or deactivation of the passenger-side front air bag based upon the weight of the occupant
  • Pretensioners: During an impact, the impact sensors initiate front seat belt pretensioners to immediately remove slack from seat belts, which reduces the forward movement of the occupant’s head and torso
  • Seat-mounted Side Air Bags: Available seat-mounted side air bags extend protection to driver and front passenger
  • Side-impact Door Beams: Door beams are made of high-strength steel mounted in the vehicle’s doors to help prevent passenger compartment intrusion

Worldwide Availability

Sold in key international markets throughout the world, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler is available with a diesel engine, as well as left- and right-hand-drive models.  Built at Chrysler Group’s Stickney Avenue Toledo Assembly Plant in Toledo, Ohio, the 2007 Jeep Wrangler will arrive in Jeep dealerships in the fall of 2006.

Our predictions were accurate!

We had written:

The ancient Jeep Wrangler will be redesigned in 2006-07, with a much-rumored extended-wheelbase four-door version coming as well; we don't expect the appearance to change much. Jeep Wranglers will cease production on July 21, 2006, according to the Toledo Blade's Julie McKinnon [thanks, Imperial4ever, for letting us know about it], and the new Toledo Jeep Assembly Plant will, within the week, start production of the new Wranglers. The two and four door versions will be started within five weeks of each other.

We'd expect the next generation Wrangler to have a wider body, better off-road capabilities, more electronic aids to off-roading, and live axles (oops, we've now been told “dual solid axles”). We suspect they will get an independent front suspension and safety enhancements. The extra width may be a way to gain anti-roll safety without the punishing ride of past Wranglers’ bound suspensions. The unique folding windshield and removable doors will remain, but a modular hardtop might be used instead of the expensive, troublesome fabric. As with other Jeeps, a new front stabilizer bar disconnection feature can add off-road ability without compromising on-road ride: by removing the stabilizer bar, the wheels can move farther independently of each other (you would not want to drive the Wrangler like this at anything resembling ordinary street speeds).

The Wrangler is expected to have the 3.7 liter V6 since DCX is intent on eliminating unnecessary engines and transmissions; though the 3.8 might also show up, since the 3.7 might be discarded entirely in favor of the 3.8 across the board (the 3.8 produces 205 hp). Dana has won the axle contract again.

Jeep Gladiator: улучшенный Wrangler

Великолепный пример, как можно улучшить и без того хорошую машину. Практически это - трансформер. Часть крыши с окном удаляется, кузов за счет съема задних сидений увеличивается с 5,5 футов в длину до 8 футов, двери распахиваются на 180 градусов, а если хочется - их можно и вообще снять.

Двигатель - 2,8-литровый четырехцилиндровый дизель с турбонаддувом, мощностью 163 лошадиных силы и крутящим моментом 400 Нм.

Впрочем, пока это - лишь опытный образец. Как сказал дизайн-директор DaimlerChrysler Тревор Кредо: "эта модель послужит основой для Wrangler следующего поколения". Судя по тому, как быстро сменяются поколения в автомире, ждать осталось недолго.

Презентация нового Wrangler в Детройте началась с разбитой витрины

В рамках североамериканского автосалона в Детройте компания Jeep представила новое поколение популярного внедорожника Wrangler. Эффектная презентация джипа шокировала посетителей автосалона. Представленный публике автомобиль ни секунды не простоял на стенде компании. Сразу после презентации, устроенной в его честь, внедорожник сорвался с места и уехал…

Инсценированный организаторами презентации Jeep "побег" внедорожника был, конечно же, хорошо спланированным рекламным ходом. Согласно сценарию, о котором не знали посетители автосалона, новый Wrangler спешно покинул подиум компании и устремился не куда-нибудь, а прямо на улицу, протаранив ближайшую стеклянную витрину выставочного центра, рассыпавшуюся со звоном на мелкие кусочки. Выскочив из выставочного центра и произведя при этом огромное количество шума, внедорожник устремился вниз по лестнице на Вашингтон авеню. Финальной частью "побега" стала демонстрация внедорожных качеств нового Wrangler на лестнице прямо возле выставочного центра. В конце показательных выступлений джип взобрался вверх по лестнице и величественно замер у входа в Pontchartrain Hotel.

Хорошая крыша - новая крыша!

jeep_wrang_roof_5.jpg

Jeep’s new Wrangler for 2007 gets a new engine — a 3.8-liter V6 engine that produces 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque — along with a six-speed manual transmission (or four-speed automatic). But the most novel feature is its three-piece modular hardtop, the removal of which no longer requires the owner to stage a “roof raising” kegger and clear a place over the mulch pit to store the thing. Now, the driver can take the top off by removing the three panels separately. A soft top that folds back to open over the driver’s head — creating a kind of reverse cabriolet — is also available. Click through for pics of the roof in action.
