TORRANCE, Calif., February 8th, 2022 – Rydeen Mobile Electronics, a cutting-edge electronics designer and manufacturer dedicated exclusively to advanced vehicle driver safety, announces a new and unique 360-degree video rearview replacement mirror with built-in touch capable 10-inch HD monitor with built-in drive recorder.  Unlike other mirrors that can capture and record DVR video, the RYDEEN TOMBO 360 DVR Mirror also houses a 360-degree 4K High-Definition digital video camera. TOMBO, which means “dragonfly” in Japanese, symbolizes the capability of All-Seeing-Vision. It provides a full view of both the inside and outside of the vehicle from the vantage point of the rearview mirror.

The stunning 10-inch frameless mirror embeds a full-length touchscreen that controls and displays streaming in 4K video.  The single 360-degree camera streams and records video from all sides of the car.  Users can then choose to display the front of the car, sides of the car and the rear seat, for monitoring passengers.

Users can swipe left and right on the mirror to view the particular perspective they wish to see.  They can also set the mirror to show split screen views of multiple angles (including left and right-side lanes or front view plus backseat).  What makes this product so unique is that the TOMBO 360 can show a 360-degree view simultaneously on all multiple view selections for complete viewing coverage.

When the DVR mirror’s monitor section is off, it becomes a normal reflective mirror, however, the video recording will continue in the background.

The mirror can also work with a HD video quality backup camera, giving you a 2-channel HD recording feature. The TOMBO 360 mirror can also stream video from behind the car and automatically switch to a backup camera when the car is in reverse (sold separately with ProKit 1 package).

ProKit 1 also includes proximity sensor. If a car was damaged while parked overnight, the owner can view video footage of the incident recorded by TOMBO 360. Viewing both the car cabin AND the surroundings of the car, or owners may view a parked car’s condition and surroundings recorded, as the proximity sensor can wake up the DVR function with the presence of objects and movement.

TOMBO 360 features a USB-C port, enabling the user to connect TOMBO 360 with an external memory device for video storage backup. This feature is so convenient for the video files backup and transfers to a PC rather than the tiny microSD card used by other car DVR products.

In the future, RYDEEN will add 4G/5G capability to the USB-C port, so that it becomes a “virtual technology hub” for any car, including older vehicles.  With the optional wireless 4G/5G connection, parents can check on teen drivers in real time.

Rydeen Mobile Electronics CEO and Founder Phil Maeda said, “Even older vehicles can benefit from cutting edge technology with the TOMBO 360 mirror. This is the only automotive mirror of its kind that combines both streaming video and a 360-degree camera for views in and around the vehicle,” he continued, “The TOMBO 360 now becomes the base platform for adding future technology; not only 4G or 5G, but also facial recognition and unattended vehicle security.”

Unlike other 360-degree cameras that present a rounded, “fish-eye,” distorted image, the TOMBO 360 uses internal processing to flatten the image and present a bright, clear, and realistic view.

Our system uses a Sony® Hi-Res CMOS (STARVIS®) sensor with advanced HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology, adjusting lighting conditions for clarity and perfect resolution in any situation. This is important when the outside lighting is bright and sunny, but the inside cabin lighting is darker. RYDEEN has overcome this lighting challenge, which continues to plague most other systems.

Users may change the camera angle to face straight forward, then the TOMBO 360 mirror can view beyond right and left sides of A-pillars of a vehicle.  It can automatically change the screen view for blind spot elimination. The mirror also automatically triggers the optional rear camera when the car is placed in reverse, offering a seamless system for all driving directions.

TOMBO 360 mirror enables adding one of RYDEEN’s Blind Spot Radar Safety products with internal LED indicators. Making installation easy with the elimination of removing the A-pillar panel and drilling holes for independent indicators. As indicated, TOMBO 360 is truly the information HUB for all types of safety features. “This is the first generation of our platform, which will continue to incorporate industry leading technologies,” added Maeda.

The retail pricing for TOMBO 360 is $399.00 and the upgrade ProKit 1 package is $199.00.

RYDEEN is now shipping the TOMBO 360 and ProKit 1 to retailers & distributors throughout USA and Canada. Please feel free to contact us at 310-787-7880 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for any questions.

Now Available, the Vibrant, Low Draw Letters are the Perfect Way to Make Your Own Marquee-Style Glowing Vehicle Badge for Your Vehicle

METAIRIE, LA, Feb. 8, 2022 – Oracle Lighting (www.oraclelights.com), the market leader in creating high quality lighting products and innovative LED solutions for the automotive aftermarket, is proud to announce the launch of the new universal LED letter badges. Now shipping with an MSRP of $38.75 (per letter), these vibrant letters are available in a matte white or matte black surface finish with either white LED or amber LED.

“These individual LED illuminated letters are the perfect way to make your own marquee-style glowing vehicle badge for your vehicle,” explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “When turned on, the letters emit a soft edge-lit glow to make your custom badge stand out. Even when off, the sleek design of the letter housings gives a customized high-end appearance.”

The LED lighting has a low draw…less than 0.1 Amp per letter with an overall size of approximately 3.75in. wide x 1.4in. tall x 0.5in thick. Installation is easy with the VHB double-stick adhesive. Simply wire the letters to a 12V source such as parking lights, ignition fuse, or a separate toggle switch. Please note that a hole may be required to route the wire, and each vehicle’s needs will be different. Oracle Lighting recommends using the company’s VHB Primer (Oracle p/n 2082-504) to get the best bond with the mounting surface.

“The premium construction and overall styling deliver great value for an easy DIY illuminated badge,” Hartenstein concluded. “Simply choose the letters you need, and get ready to draw attention to your ride with a build-your-own glowing letter design.”

Heathrow, FL (February 4, 2022) – Dual Electronics Corporation announced today that 12Volt industry veteran Clyde Podraza passed away on February 2.  Clyde spent more than 25 years in the 12V industry.  Starting his career at Motorola, he then moved on to work in executive positions at Panasonic, International Jensen, Recoton, Dual Electronics, and AAMP Global.  Clyde was one of the founding partners at Dual Electronics and spent a decade as a top executive there.

Jim Braun, President of Dual Electronics said “I worked alongside Clyde for almost 20 years.  He was a pillar of the 12Volt industry during his time with Jensen and Dual.  Clyde was one of the original founders of Dual Electronics, and we would certainly not be where we are today without the monumental efforts and influence Clyde brought to the marketplace.”  Braun added, “More important than this, he was just a genuinely great person.  Clyde would do almost anything to help any one of his large network of friends and colleagues.  I’m going to miss Clyde, as I know many will.”

Clyde spent the last several years of his career at AAMP Global prior to retiring in 2020. Scott Forst, President and CEO of AAMP Global added “I personally started at AAMP with Clyde, and I couldn’t have been luckier to learn from such a wonderful and talented person.   He spread his knowledge and joy to everyone at AAMP and he will be greatly missed.”

Clyde is survived by his wife of 44 years, Marj, his three grown children and three grandchildren.

STILLWATER, USA – In its first product release for 2022, KICKER® Audio announces a trio of down-firing loaded enclosures, each featuring KICKER’s thin-mount L7T™ square subwoofers. All enclosures come with a single 2-Ohm terminal, and are available in 8-, 10-, and 12-inch models. The enclosures are available for purchase at Authorized KICKER Dealers in-store and online. Soon to be introduced to the world on the KICKER UnMASKED! Live™ Weekly show, L7T Loaded Down-Firing Enclosures will retail from $279.99-$379.99. L7T Loaded Down-Firing Enclosures are also available at www.kicker.com.

Designed to fit perfectly under a seat or in your cargo area, each thin enclosure features plush black carpeting with rounded corners and custom embroidery. Inside the enclosure, thick MDF construction and heavy internal bracing offers strength and stability despite the stacked cargo that may be on top. The enclosures are carpeted and custom embroidered with the KICKER logo.

The inner workings of the L7T thin-mount subwoofer are unprecedented. L7T features an innovative “Forced-Air Cooling™” system that uses the woofer’s own cone movement to route more air through its motor, forcing unwanted heat out of vents built into the backplate and allowing the sub to run cooler than previous versions. Users get the bass they love, the sleek look, and the reliability beyond expectations.

KICKER’s exclusive UniPlate™ combines the pole piece and back-plate, making them a single, seamless unit that assists in pushing damaging heat away from the subwoofer. Perimeter venting is also used above the sub’s extended top-plate, pulling additional cooling air in and around the motor. The subwoofer’s top-plate utilizes a patented “bumped” design, allowing extra excursion and longer throw for deeper overall bass in an extremely thin design. Additionally, the unique, patented square cone provides nearly 20 percent additional cone area compared to a standard round-shaped sub of the same size, making a 12-inch square sub perform like a 13-inch round subwoofer, for example. As a result, the listener enjoys more volume and deeper bass.

KICKER Performance Audio products, a division of Stillwater Designs and Audio, Inc.®, are available for the mobile and home audio aftermarket at authorized retailers worldwide, and also as Original Equipment for boat and automobile manufacturers. Consumers seeking more information on KICKER or Livin’ Loud® may call the Consumer Information Line at 1-800-256-5425 or visit the brand website at www.kicker.com. Consumers can follow KICKER socially at Facebook.com/kickeraudio, Twitter.com/kickeraudio, Instagram.com/kickeraudio, or Pinterest.com/kickeraudio, and use the hashtags #kickeraudio and #livinloud.

Popular OEM upgrade line improved with slim component, coaxial

CAMARILLO, CALIF., January 31, 2022 (MEDIAWIRE) – ORCA Design and Manufacturing announced it is currently shipping the latest models of its popular Focal Auditor line. Rebranded Auditor EVO, the line adds two slim versions of its 6.5-inch component and coaxial speakers as well as a redesigned tweeter.

 The 2022 Auditor EVO line consists of six coaxial kits ranging from 4 inches to 6x9 inches, along with three component kits in five-inch and 6.5-inch sizes. The inverted-dome tweeter in each has been redesigned with the stylish Focal logo in black and the component versions come with surface mount cups and flush-mount bezels.

The 6.5-inch ACX 165 coaxial and ASE 165 component set gain slimmer counterparts in the ACX 165S and ASE165S. The speaker depth is reduced by 25 percent thanks to a redesigned basket and magnet structure. The resulting technology maintains quality midbass performance while enabling fit into doors and panels with limited depth.

“Auditor has been a great addition to the Focal line, especially as more customers opt to perform value-focused upgrades to their factory systems,” said Nalaka Adikari, sales director for ORCA. “We’ve worked closely with Focal to bring new options to our retailers that fit more applications. The addition of shallow drivers let more drivers experience Focal’s superior audio performance.”

Holly Hill, Fla. – January 12, 2022 – Saddle Tramp® by Metra Electronics® has new radio installation kits, digital signal processors, smart brake light flashers, a new and improved handlebar audio control retention interface, accessory harnesses, and an amp wiring kit, in stock now and shipping. All of these new products are designed to fit select Harley-Davidson® motorcycle models for easy installation, giving owners better options for audio system upgrades and customizations. These new products were first shown at the 2021 SEMA Show and will also be on display at the AIMExpo in the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 19th to 21st.

Radio Installation Kits

Saddle Tramp’s new radio installation kits include an interface with a water-resistant enclosure, wiring harness, and an antenna adapter to make replacing the factory radio easy. The interface retains the use of the factory handlebar audio controls and other features, depending on the kit. The BC-HDR-K1 is for an ISO Double-DIN radio that has an “L” shaped chassis design with the chassis at the top, and the BC-HDR-K3 is for a Single-DIN radio. Both kits are designed to fit non-amplified 2014-up* Harley-Davidson® Street Glide, Electra Glide, Ultra, Limited, and 2015-up* Road Glide models. Saddle Tramp’s new Police Edition kits are designed to fit 2014-up* Harley-Davidson® Electra Glide FLHTP models with the police package. The BC-HDR-K4 is for an ISO Single-DIN radio and the BC-HDR-K2 is for an “L” shaped Double-DIN or modular radio with the chassis mounted at the top. Both of the kits designed for Single-DIN radios include an LCD screen to display the oil pressure and EITMS status.

The BC-DSPL-HD2 fits 2014-up* Harley-Davidson® Street Glide, Electra Glide, Ultra, Limited, and 2015-up* Road Glide models.

This reduces the cost, saves time, and allows installers to provide better service with complete control over the upgrade. Both DSPs provide six channels of output and a fifteen-band graphic EQ per channel with a selectable slope. Installers can adjust and control the sound system specifically for the acoustics of the motorcycle and the driver’s personal audio preferences.

This plug-n-play flasher is easy to install and is designed specifically for the original factory rear brake lights, and is not compatible with rear bullet-style brake/turn signal lights. The BC-HDSSF1 fits 2014-up* Harley-Davidson® Street Glide, Road Glide, and Road King Touring models, the BC-HDSSF2 fits 1996-2013 Electra Glide, Ultra Classic/Limited, Road King/Classic, and Road Glide Standard/Ultra/Custom Touring models, and the BC-HDSSF3 fits 2010-2013 Street Glide and Road Glide Touring models.

The BC-9717 is a plug-n-play rear speaker bypass harness used for splitting the inputs and outputs when installing aftermarket amplifiers in 2014-up* Harley-Davidson® Ultra Limited models. For adding aftermarket 12volt accessories to a power source, the BC-9719 is a battery accessory Y harness with OE connectors designed to fit 2004-2013 Harley-Davidson® Touring FLH/FLT models and 2014-up* Touring and Trike models with Stage II Boom!™ Audio packages.

Amp Wiring Kit

Las Vegas, Nev. – (January 2, 2022) – Audiomobile is excited to announce initial shipments of their first five (5) models of their latest ‘Advanced Technology’ car audio subwoofer solutions.

Featuring an array of unique, and proprietary premium design elements, the “Solopass” series was specifically designed to ‘fill the gap’ in 12V retailers merchandising mix, by providing an easy, alternative, step-up, “Better” – ‘drop-in’ and affordable, ‘vehicle-specific’ subwoofer solutions – vs. the traditional, carpeted, loaded prefab boxes, for a wide array of popular vehicles, including the Ford F-150, GMC / Chevy, Toyota trucks, and BMW SUV platforms.

Available in three versions, dual 10 Solopass ( ‘MCAR’ pre-tuned Passive Radiator transducer), Sealed 10 and 12 inch and ‘Aeroport’ vented models. These unique, unloaded, prefab “Wedge” enclosures feature non-parallel panels, and full-width cross-braces (to eliminate any enclosure resonance) and are designed and manufactured in the USA. All Solopass enclosures employ an array of high-performance features, including CNC manufacturing, ¾” US MDF construction, and1.5 inch front, staggered, flush-mount driver mounting, and were designed to accept select Audiomobile low-profile drivers. This rare feature allows dealers the flexibility to customize the price-point, impedance and power-handling, for customers’ needs and budgets.

The Solopass also introduces a remarkable, industrial-grade, spray-on, textured finish, called “Composite Armored Suede” (or ‘CAS’), which is extremely rugged, and features a high degree of luster, that is very smooth to the touch, unlike typical, generic, “bedliner” type spray-coatings.

These modular, ‘Omni-fit’ enclosures, provide a choice of ‘Stealth” or ‘Vehicle Specific’ designs, including “down-fire” models, all of which are F-150 focused, but also fit an array of trucks and SUV’s and are available with optional kits, including proprietary ‘Iso-Feet’ kits, to further facilitate additional truck applications. The Solopass enclosures, by virtue of their modular design, can also be used in unique, ‘bookend’ type format, allowing easy installation of a “Quattro” system (4 x 10-inch drivers) in down-fire, stealth system, that requires a remarkable 1.1 cu ft air-volume.

With an MSRP of under $300, the SoloPass enclosure systems set a new standard in flexible, high-performance subwoofer enclosures, and allow retailers to both enhance and expedite the critical efficiency of their installation bay, without negatively compromising their ‘Custom Box’ capabilities, while offering their clients unprecedented options and superb value.

For additional information please visit us at facebook.com/Audiomobileusa.

  • CNC manufactured using 100% premium-grade, US ¾ inch MDF material.
  • Unique, Down-fire designs, allow for improved ‘loading’ in truck apps.
  • Prefab minimizes the duplicate / excess inventory dollars of loaded boxes.
  • Reversable design allows for tight seatback fitment, in trunk or SUV apps.
