Default ICE'd Lamborghini Murceilago !!!

So... We came across a Lamborghini Murceilago Barchetta today !!!

ICEing (pun intended) on the cake was that it was ICE'd !!!

It was an all DLS install with Pioneer HU..

Here are some of the pics...

The Monster !!!





The V12 powerplant....its huge...and sounds awesome...the Barchetta has bracing for strengthening the chassis because of the absence of roof.



The Headunit Pioneer 7550 DVD with Touchscreen (a Pioneer in a Murceil, Sam? Navinji?)



The Speakers were DLS Ultimate 2 - way with weird tweeter mounting. Here are the tweeters in chrome housing mounted on the dash. Best part is that they sway left and right as you corner. Automatic Imaging Calibration he he he



The DLS midbasses in the famous Lambo doors !!!



The amprack in the front boot with good work of plexiglass (with DLS logo routed) which acts as a vent for bass and helps the amplifier in cooling. Under the plexiglass window are the DLS amplifiers. A4 for speakers and A6 mono for single 10" subwoofer in enclosure beneath the amplifiers. Also visible through the DLS logo is the power cap. The power cable and distribution blocks is phoenix gold and the interconnects were Monster.



When the amp rack lights up in blue !!!



40 Farad Capacitor !!! I think it sure can power the Lambo in case of no fuel.



DLS Subwoofer firing towards the cap.



Neat reverse camera, linked to the Pioneer HU. pretty much a must in this car.



The Car was (needless to say) nice. Any superlatives used here wont do justice. But I must say here, the car is way more cramped than the Gallardo or the 911 for that matter. Getting in and out was a pain for me (let alone Gunbir, who crawled in from one side and crawled out the other).

The ICE, though installed really well (was done by a team from Singapore) didnt really sound that great. The DLS Ultimate speakers retail for around $500 I think, and though they looked the part, didnt sound anywhere near worthy of that price. Honestly, they sounded more like a $150 set.

The sub placement could have been better, bass wasnt great either, considering the amplification used. I've installed in sports cars, and had way better results with more modest equipment.

All in all a nice Birthday... Yes, its mine today. And so far the day's been... nice.

Oh I'm gonna be rich (rubbing hands in glee)...

Fuelled, yes thats the stock tweeter location, but the DLS tweet is way to big for that, so the installer mounted them on the dash...

So you're saying a 10k Illusion set (price?) sounded better than a DLS 3way that costs at least 60k? Thats what we said, the DLS sounded crappy for the price they are sold at.

With the Illusions, you have made a good choice.

first it was for $500 (500*45 = INR22500) then it was for $400 (400 *45 = 18000) these are for 2-way set but the offical rate is about INR 78000

and for the 3-way the cost is less than 60k lol then offical prices in india are for INR 98000.

I am really confused and please gunbir and jb do some justice by telling me some source from where I can get the 3-way. for less than 60k. If u can provide it the help will be highly appreciated .....

There you go buddy. Theyre all DLS 3 way speakers within the same price range as mentioned above, now it depends on you how much would you like to spend?
