moral, your close up pics are out of focus. I noticed the same in your fiat report. Which cam you use? also is macro enabled?

So far American Dynamic (available at Hot Tracks) and Wurth on JC Road are listed in this thread. Any other damping products and their availability in Bangalore. Please list the ones you know. Would be useful for DIY.

This damping is 2.6mm thick. The other variant is 1.7mm thick, same as Dynamat Xtreme, if that is any benchmark for comparison thickness-wise. 7 mm would be damn thick, but unlike rubber sheets which arent exactly malleable, this will still spread and occupy the space available. Very flexible and high density material. Perfectly visco-elastic. Another material which I'm getting a sample shipment of very soon is exactly Dynamat Xtreme in terms of composition. That is about 1mm thick, about that of Dynamat original, but with Alu foil and self adhesive too. About Rs. 150 per sq. ft, I'm hoping.

There are many other damping products like Fonomat(used by Hydra in his Palio) & Original Dynamat, Dynamat Extreme, etc. All are avilable with professional installers AFAIK.

It should come out ok in auto mode. Also, are you doing the half press for the focus then pressing it further down fully to snap.

And camera shake steady hands as much as possible.

Camera is good dude. play around with it.

cheers

sorry for OT.

Damping: Stage 1
Front Doors: 3 sheets
Under carpet: 2 Sheets
Trunk: 2 Sheets
Rear Doors:2 sheets
3 cars = 27 sheets but my car alreadyhas front doors done so 3 sheets less = 24 sheets.

Stage 2: If required Viper's boys will be coraled into doing underbody damping.

Any time mate. They are not doing much just simple stuff. You've done a lot more for your car.

You mind posting some pics of YOUR Skoda? With all the new Uffers, Damping & Amplifires going in I think it's time you posted some pics of it.

P.S. What happened to the machine?

B&T posted a pic of the Sub. That was a little unusual given the compact self made FRP box.

The rest is quite a regular setup. Gunbir and B&T posts much better pics here. My ICE needs are dictated by the use of the Skoda to carry 2 30" bags + atleast 1 carry on to/from airports.

What I have:
Blau 275 driving Infinty 12" sub
Blau 450 driving 2 6" Blau midbasses (80Hz - 250Hz) in rear as I noticed that the rear speakers were too small to even do a decent job of the midbass.
Infintiy 340 driving front and rear.

Options: replace 450 and 275 with a single amp that can deliver 100 x 2 + 250 x 1

repeat...
Blau 275 driving Infinty 12" sub (B&T posted a pic of this on thei forum)
Blau 450 driving 2 6" Blau midbasses (80Hz - 250Hz) in rear as I noticed that the rear speakers were too small to even do a decent job of the midbass.
Infintiy 340 driving front and rear.

Front Speakers are ScanSpeak woofers (18W) mated to Blau Silk domes from their 172. Rear are Vifa 13cm midbasses (P13W) mated to Vifa tweeters (D26NC) but using the Velocity tweeter's mesh. I got the tweeters for cheap as someone had friend one woofer and was discarding the set. I even managed to salvage the ferrite cores from the XO of the Velocity and use them to build an XO for my wifes car.

Crossovers are my own. I use Solen caps with a MIT 1uf bypas cap for the front, CTR poly caps for the rear and ferrite core inductors (air core makes it too big), XOs were built using LSP Cad.

I'd have to find all my papers to knwo the exact model numbers of the drivers but since they are really all out of production (the D26NC was the last to be in production) it really does not matter. IN fact Vifa is not v-linein the Peerless product range.

it gets complicated right? Now you know why i dont talk about what I use. Few care, and fewer understand and a few even think of me as the ultimate scavenger/cheapskate.
