what spl figure are you aiming for lbm? 160+ db? or 170?
Sir I agree on the point of upgrading the charging system but where can I get that kind of alternator here in india. My first thread on this very forum was for that purpose only. Chalo that is history. I am ok with play for short durations only. So upgrade in that area planed till now maybe later when I get a bigger amp.

For your future uprades, some info. A skoda alternator(bosch) is available for 18K in open market. Bosch dealers can arrange for you a 200A alternator for that price. Fitment is your headache of course.

ohh damn...
somebody so crazy for SPL.... today i read all posts of this thread and im like... what the hell , i think , anybody near this car will vibrate to death. ohh my goodness , i would love to see this car but from a distance.
The sub looks huge , infact biggest i have ever seen. and i feel sorry for the swift.

waise , whats the total cost till now ? i guess, some lacs ?? i guess ICE in itself costs more than the car ?

and yes , lbm sir , what do u do professionally ?

I too tried to find alternator replacements in Mumbai, have spoken to a few good guys out here....they also not very sure about the alternator upgrades. They have asked me to come sometime down to their workshop and then probably they'll be in a better position to find out.

The good news is that there's a special on it, right now! Till Xmas or stocks last, whichever is first.

Buy 10 for 11 L. It works out to a whopping 9.09% off on the MRP.


Dont PM me for orders. I'll personally come and collect the cheque wherever you are.

I remember the Palio-Eyeballer used a Bosch Alternator. It was built like a tank.
