Slick Hose Clamps
Pi-Thon Design Inc. has just released its new HoseLock race and hose clamps. These new clamps greatly improve upon the looks of conventional clamps and will secure nearly any rubber or steel-braided hose. The secret to the HoseLock is its internal compression ring, which cinches the hose as the two ends are twisted together. For more information, contact: Pi-Thon Design Inc., Dept.

The Ultimate Battery Terminal
The PP2001-PT offers the most efficient method of termination to the battery with absolute minimum power loss. Using Lok-Nut compression terminals, the battery cable is locked into place with the best connection and power transfer possible. The positive side fused block with two ANL fuses eliminates mounting external fuse blocks and extra terminations. The terminal sizes range include 1/0, 4, and 8 gauge. Included adapters make it more versatile by reducing terminal sizes from 1/0 to 4 gauge and 4 to 8 gauge. The built-in digital voltage meter monitors the battery condition at a glance. The meter is auto-current sensing and auto shutoff. It turns on whenever there is a measurable current draw in the vehicle and turns off after a period of inactivity; you never have to go searching for a meter to test your battery.

Gargantuan Power Amplifier
Directed Electronic's 23-inch long, 17-pound class D powerhouse, the Viper Audio d2500.1 mono-block amplifier is one of very few legitimate 2,500-watt car amplifiers on the market today. Its high conversion efficiency allows it to deliver more real-world power in an automotive electrical environment that rarely offers an adequate power supply. The d2500.1 also features a unique and exciting mechanical design with an acrylic window that features the illuminated Viper snake head logo over the control panel area on the top of the amplifier.
