Just curious Magma. For the same price (or probably lower), you could have got a branded Monster/Scosche/GZ wiring kit. Any reason why you preferred to go individual?

umm, well i have seen "scoshe"(the set at the same price point ,not the higher range ones)
purely MY opinion is that the individual wiring i got was better.

MOnster and GZ are very good however you should note that you will have to buy extra RCA if your gonna run all 4 speakers off the amp, in addition to that most kits come with limited speaker wire which will not be enough if you are gonna use components ( i got 15m and i still fell short by 2m!)

Secondly the speaker wire i got is OFC (at least i believe it is!) and 1.5mm sq.i felt it was VFM.

But more importantly i had fun buying everything seperately!

Damn serious!!! Went through TBHP threads for nearly 4 months before deciding.
4. which kind of music do you listen to ?? prefer deep bass or how is it...
I listen to all sorts of music - Indian & western classical, Soft / Hard rock, Bollywood, Jazz, Rap, Hip Hop, etc.
I like the sound stage to have a good mix of all frequencies, neither too much bass nor too much treble. But yes, when the track requires some deep thumping bass, the setup must be able to handle it.
5. would you recommend it to others???
Definately
Place of purchase / install.
Sound Factor, Lavelle Road, Bangalore.
