LBM, I would agree with nitrous above. With the weight of the amps, batteries, box and woofers all adding up your Swift's weight distribution will drastically change. If this car is a daily driver you should consider overhauling the suspension to compensate.

LBM,

Earlier you were running similar setup with 17" wheels.
What was the total weight of V1.0 ?

I have modded the rear springs. I went to some shop who deals in repair of shocks and I have put two springs in the back. It is not the final mod will have to check the operation of the same with all the equipment in the ride. One more thing this not a daily drive car, It is just a show-off car !!!!

Will surely update the thread with the final outcome !!!

How is the rear view vision being planned due to the wall?
Final weight would be in range of 450 kgs !!!

Rear camera will be installed !!!

I have used SMD subs because I had them. And they are not at all SPL subs they are daily driving subs. No other electrical equipment is affected as the voltage is still in the permissible limtis

Good lord LBM, this is crazy.... but AWESOME

One question (pardon my ignorance): It seems you're using MDF everywhere. Howcome MDF is used for most of these ICE installs rather than (stronger) plywood?

here's a reply I dug up from navin
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/ask-gu...ml#post1287241

Personally, I was under the impression that MDF was acoustically more inert than ply - in terms of damping out resonances. A simplistic explanation I read was that MDF was more homogenous than ply.

LBM, though that's an old thread, I'm curious why you used MDF (instead of Al you preferred then)

Exactly, ply is stronger but it MUST be void free. Ply also gives a nicer surface than MDF to veneer (good for home audio).

I used a brand of ply called Truwood. It is 100% gurjan ply.

In addition my current floor standing speakers have a 3mm sheet of lead sandwiched between the layers of ply, MDF and FRP. The speakers are based on Rick Craig's Tempesta Extreme.

However for car audio installs MDF and FRP make more sense since ply tends to "open up" over time due to heat and humidity.

Wow oh Wow!!! This is insanely insane. With such a humongous setup, it sure is going to blast of the glasses, windscreen included. Since you mentioned its a show car, i wont ask you further on the driveability etc. Way to go man.

Sorry about the noob question (since we never had a chance to interact with each other before), but you have mentioned that this will be a show-off car, may I ask, do you own an audio equipment showroom or are you a dealer in car audio equipment (so you need to show the setup to customers)?

No I am not a dealer or own a showroom. I am just a enthusiast like may other !!!

Saying it a showcar is a little incorrect I would say fun car. It is like starting the LOW BASS culture here in India and take the game to next level !!!
