Unfortunately they too many ppl getting off that boat!.. Happens to the best of Brands... somewhere they get complacent and dont realise the others have stolen the thunder from under their feet!.. They will first live in Denial for some time - till their bottomline provokes some very interested stakeholders to keel-haul some A$$. .. They most likely will panic and seel the company off to some Chinese firm..... ...

I should'nt get into story telling I think.. EVER... Alpine and Chinese... ***SHUDDERrrrrrrrr***

Nothing tru happening here. I mean no TRUTECHNOLOGY thingy!!

Just a couple of PDX may come thru. It'll be either a mixture of Hertz and Aplines or 'nothing but Alpines' or 'nothing but Hertz' kinda setup. Cables will be Audison for sure. 2 LCDs in headrests. And only Dynamat Extreme this time. HU?? I wanna know what comes factory fitted. DVD player from Alpine.

I test drove a camry today! A relative of mine came with one! Yes, The new one man. The car is a BOMB! And feels somewhat rock solid too.

This sunday was not so good. Reason: Brazil lost again to france!

There's another good reason too: I bought some good OL CDs today and it sounds very bad on my system.
Whom to blame??? ALPINE? Zuhemi? Car? Me?
Yes, I should blame it on myself! Why the hell did I get that nice PIO replaced? I'm sitting like a monkey who chopped it's ba**s!

I'm getting so irritated that I almost tried to forget about a music system installed in my car. I dont even switch it on now!!!
God!!! But why me? why me??

Hope Gunbir and JB have made their plans Solid by now.

FLASH:
The new PDX amps and some new stuff from alpine is being officially launched in India this month, I heard so. Anybody going for the launch? LBM??? Sam??? Gunman??? Jb??? Navinji????

Guys, What do you say about this install?

Head Unit -- ALPINE 9831 MP3 CD player

Front Stage -- ALPINE 6" Components with crossover network
Rear Fill -- ALPINE 6" Components with crossover network

Sub1 -- ALPINE TYPE R 12" SUBWOOFER > in sealed box
Sub2 -- ALPINE TYPE R 12" SUBWOOFER > " " "
Both the Subs are surrounded with very bright LEDs which can be seen from a good distance!!

Amp1 -- ALPINE MRV-M345 4CHANNEL AMPLIFIER
Amp2 -- ALPINE MRD-M501 V12DIGITAL CLASS D MONOBLOCK AMPILFIER

Capacitor -- Visionik 1 Farad Capacitor with digital display

Power Cables -- AMERICAN
Interconnects -- AUDISON
Speaker Cables -- AMERICAN

LCD1 -- Sony 6.2" wide screen monitor mounted in headrest.
LCD2 -- Sony 6.2" wide screen monitor mounted in headrest.
An extra pair of Headrests were bought exclusively for the LCDs and those were used to mount the LCDs. This way the headrests with the LCDs can be removed they're when not needed. I'll soon post a pic with LCDs in car. He has'nt yet got a dvd player.

I was asked by a friend to do some audio in his car. The budget was 1Lac. I selected HU, amps, speakers, installer etc... And Mr. Zuhemi (the audio expert) did this install. He did it clean and made it look and sound very good. The stock battery was changed to a higher ampere one just for this ICE setup. Sound damping done good too. He ended up spending more than 2Lacs on the setup. And to say the truth, it can produce good SQ and very good SPL. Speaking about shaking the neighbourhoods, They banned this car from entering their area with stereo on. And his headlamp was once broken with sticks for not adhering to the ban!!!



Sometimes the back is more better than the front when held open!!


Close up! And that rings around the subs are LEDs for some eyecandy!
And god! No grills!!!!!!!!


I would've liked those Alpine components on the rear doors rather than in boot!


It looks humble from the outside! Is'nt it??

Now, the question is shall I buy this car (for the ICE ofcourse)????
He's asking a whopping 4.6 Lacs with all the ICE.

(This is the question that matters most)
Gurus! Zuhemi is recommending me to dump my Bandpass SUB (Velocity VXB12) and opt for a similar SUB setup. And he says it can be powered by my Alpine MRD-M605 monoblock itself. Do you recommend it???

as was pointed out in your other post at market place, its costly for that money. Teh car doesnt command taht much moeny with/without ice and teh car is a second hand + ice would be a second hand too when one buys.

but, looks a gr8 setup. He could have got a fibre glass setup and hence teh boot could be used.
