Nah I am serious.

How do you keep track of 2 D26NC torn out of a Vifa speaker, a 9830 stripped out of the Octy and installed in the Sail, etc.. My system has too many odd parts for me to track. I built the fiberglass deck myself. I dont remember what i paid for the resin or fiber mat or even the polyester caps i used to modify the crossovers.

1. Car
Mitsubishi Lancer. You can see pictures of the car in the garage section.

2. what is your existing setup (HEADUNITS, SPEAKERS, AMPS, DSP,SW etc.)

I like my music to be easy and balanced. For the lancer i chose a system that would essentially sound lovely with the kind of music i like. I have a slight advantage over most people when it comes to putting ICE lol. Ghar ki kheti. Pluck and put

Anyways this is what I use.

1) Some Alpine Deck 75 something witha 6 CDMP3 changer. Lovely sounding, even with MP3s

2) JBL GTO 2000 amplifier 1 no

3) JBL GTO 4000 amplifier 1 no

4) JBL CS 1200T Bass tube (The GTO 2000 is bridged into this tube)

5) Infinity 6X9 Kappa 693.5i with emit for the rear

6) Infinity Kappa 50.5 components in the front with crossover setting on low

7) All speaker wiring is Van Den Hul - The Clearline 12 gauge (heh heh)

8) RCA cabling is the stunning XLN series from monster cable.


3. How much did it cost ?

Free

4.How serious were your about your system?
Heh heh heh quite

5. which kind of music do you listen to ?? prefer deep bass or how is it...

I love a slightly forward system, slightly more accentuated lows and subdued highs. Throaty vocals make my hair stand lots and i like good bass too.
I listen to a lot of music with open spaces, like Godspeed You Black Emperor, Radiohead, i also love progressive and vocal house, rap (classic deathrow and no limit records), drum and bass(Amon tobin and goldie), electro and funk, boards of canada, books, clint mansell, classic rock, camel, CCR, sabbath and ofcourse experimental dark music, gothic and lots lots more

6. would you recommend it to others???

Yeah-uh!

Hi LBM... it was nice meeting you last Sunday at Driven (mayapuri).

I have to say this folks... for a DIY, he has done an excellent job. Of course earlier he did not have a source for stuff like cables, ports, distribution blocks etc but even then, he has installed the system better than most installers.

2004 Hyundai Getz GLS

2. what is your existing setup (HEADUNITS, SPEAKERS, AMPS, DSP,SW etc.)

Head Unit -- Clarion HX-D2 also known as DRZ-9255 (Rs. 65000)... Flagship audiophile CD player... no mp3, no dolphins, no colours, no motorised faceplate... just sweet sweet sound...

Front Stage -- Hertz Hi-Energy HSK165 (Rs. 13800) running active, xo at 80Hz and 3.15KHz... but keeps changing... next upgrade coming soon...

Rear Fill -- Image Dynamics CTX6 (Rs. 7220) coaxials... xo at 80Hz

Sub -- Image Dynamics iDQ12 D2 (Rs. 12550) in a sealed .85cuft enclosure.

Amp 1 -- Tru Technology T4.65 amp (Rs. 36945 approx) powers the front tweeters off 2 channels and the midbasses off the other two.

Amp 2 -- Tru Technology T4.65 amp (Rs. 36945 approx) powers the rear fills with two channels and the other 2 channels are bridged to power the sub with about 200 Tru watts

Power Cables -- upgrading to Connection Audison 2g soon... (Rs. 8000-10000 approx)... No stiffening caps

Interconnects -- Connection Audison Sonus ST2600 x 4 (Rs. 5840 x 4 = 23360)... used to have Monster Micro XLN cables earlier, just put these in... BIG change in sound... treble much much smoother and bass has a lot more definition, soundstage is more centered.

Speaker Cables -- Kimber Kable 4PR (Rs. 6000 approx)... will be upgraded to Connection Audison Sonus speaker cables soon.

3. How much did it cost ?

hmm... would cost around 2.1 Lakh...

4.How serious were your about your system?

My first install was when I was 14... installed a pair of speakers on my bicycle, would connect to my walkman. My moms car was next and the rest as they say is history...

5. which kind of music do you listen to ??

umm... from the top of my head... Everything from Patricia Barber, Diana Krall, Norah Jones to Guns n Roses, Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley, Alan Parsons Project to Dr Dre (hey Sam... W), Ludacris, Missy Elliot, The Game to Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy, Timo Mass, to Craig Armstrong, Dusted, Massive Attack to Bollywood, Indipop and so much more... Actually as long as its good creative music (and not some lame attempt on someones laptop) and recorded well... I'll listen to anything.

6. would you recommend it to others???

Hell yeah...

7. Place where the setup was done

Install done mostly at Jb's home and Driven's shop, tweaks and experiments done on daily basis at many a roadside.

lol JK couldnt get a demo for the speakers in Kerala, so he must be the only customer the seller ever had, who arranged that the SHOP OWNER got a JBL demo rack( Thanks to his contacts on a certain community of enthusiasts - what was the name of that site again? Team-BHP.com )

To top it all off, JK was the unofficial mascot for JBL for 3 whole months for coining the phrase "Let's JBLfy" lol.
