they probably use huge amps to power a big diaphram which then pushes he liquid which pushes the sub. It looks like a novlty thing, probably looks cool in your car, and maybe you can brag about it to your friends, but if a sub breaks...It is probably harder to maintain because you have all that vibration going through the system, it bound to leak after awhile of heavy bass.

Another bored rich guy...

those are just for effects. They don't do anything. they probably have some sort of liquid in them to make them look cool when they glow. i saw something like them in a crutchfield magazine

Actually those lines are connected to the amps. They are cooler lines. They help keep the amps and subs voicecoils cooller. You use regualr antifreeze fluid, and apply dye if you want to change the color. I think they have been out for at least a couple of years.

That'* true.. I know I heard of liquid cooled subs and all.. so I thought this was some more radical hook up of it...

Those are deffinately not just for looks. I have.... well had that setup but my brother bought them and put them in his mustang. the back of the subs(magnet) are tapped out and there is a fitting where your in and out lines attach. then the tubing goes to a pump/cooler wich moves the antifreeze through the tubes and magnets keeping the voice coil cool. the whole setup is like $250 and can be bought from BAZOOKA. it is called the Chill pack

you can run the amps and subs alot harder than regular because they are cooled faster

That crap does NOT work . Aor is the best way to cool off a voice coil. There is no contact between the voice coil and the cooler inside the magnet , so it does not provide proper cooling. That'* why nobody else made their own version.
