how much does this one costs? it is a beautiful sub.

lbm, how much power will go to this sub? 2400w?
right now Steg 2400 watts.

Besides, the lower level Ground Zero subs pull off very good SQ making them a good choice for someone wanting to win an SQ competition than to spend the fortune this beast costs. The mammoth power handling is of no use to a SQ competitor. What I am aware of though, is that it has been consistently reviewed by magazines alongside top SQ subs and has fared exceedingly well if not as best.

Thanks Ajay Bhai for explaining the same. The SQ of the sub is good. I will wait for few days till it is running properly after that I will post the detailed report.

Cheers!
the dimension are 36 inch width x 18 inch height and depth is 12 inch at the top and 17 at the bottom the net volume is close to 110 liters. weight will be close to 25-30 kgs and I think one cannot pick up the box alone

That ring looks good. We can trust you to add some custom gizmo or the other to your install.

Waiting to see how the enclosure looks like, l_b_m.
Hmm the whole enclosure is made of 1" MDF and screws are used to tighten it. pics will be coming up shortly.

Hahahaha. I have to check for the qulaity of my next car for sure. Today itself the driver door lock is not working, which was right after I play the sub for few mins.

Hmm till now the stock electricals are working as I keep a very close watch on the voltage part and I do not play at full throttle for more than a 1 minute as they cannot supply the juice for so long.

Why not get a higher spec alternator. A 120A one from Lucas TVS can be had for around 10K. A 150A one will go for about 12K

Few more pics. Compared to the Ground Zero Hydrogen 15 inch






The enclosure without port, see how calmly the sub is sitting in the Swift`s boot like a baby.

Sir I agree with you 100 % but it all depends on the duty. I other words High output alter will help in playing loud but since I want short duration the stock system works fine. So why change the company fitted stuff.

Sir, any reason for placing the sub facing the hatch lid? I saw two videos on you tube where its placed facing the roof:





Nice sub in the right hands sir. Have fun with it.

Sir that line was patented by me. And never was there a truer example. Well done LBM!

After all, LBM is the mascot of the ICE section.

Duty!? I was talking about buying from here. Something like a Optra alternator, or Safari alternator.
Anyways great setup, hope to admire it sometime without sitting in the back seat

Hydra, when a car is bursting at the seems (not seams) it will be producing a lot of Rattle and Hum (no matter what the damping is). It wont be music.

LBM, I'd seriosuly condier a MDF/FRP/Marine Ply composite box. Atleast for the baffle. If it was me I'd have used a FRP/Carbon fiber composite.
