Like your enthu and reminds me of the doc's ICE saga which went on for months.
now that was bit sarcastic muni.Little smily could have done better job.
Remember the quote:-"the proof of pudding........."
Why talk about pudding which u have not eaten so far.

It was just that i happen to join the forum even before i bought the car and then i was not able to get the stuff from abroad as planned coz of unavoidable circumstances which i dont wish to state here.But i am happy with the final outcome.I could have got the stuff much earlier but again cant tell u the reasons as i dont want to consume too much t-bhp's server space.

well...talking about saga,its still continuing right here. (want to buy a good car audio system)

Have a look there...

Wish you all the luck for your install Hydra...

Muni, I must salute your patience to read through the entire thread! I would want to do that once few years from now...

You are very right about the money part. I started from 15K and have now very much crossed 10 times of that. Actually I need to sit and calculate that!
I stopped making budget for ICE once I crossed 1 lakh threshold, because every time I will make one only to break it :(

It became more of an addiction lately, I would spend hours and hours browsing net and talking to people about it. I was always passionate about music and with this I was living my passion.

Not that I have tons of money. My car is on finance and I am selling my old car to finance my ICE! I am yet to figure out how to break the news to my wife. As you would have rightly guessed she is not here at present, that is why I could spend 3 days at Auto Fusion!

I guess if she asks me I would tell her the price of one component at a time and hope she does not attempt to add them! Lol


Now regarding the setup: before anyone makes this statement, let me confess that it is not an SQL setup, nor is it an SPL one, least do I care! All I care about is that I like the way it sounds and it is very close to what I had expected it to be. It is money well spent.

You can always get systems which sound close in less money but they do not sound as lush and smooth. Ofcourse with more money you can get even better...


The only thing what now I am worried about is my ears. The dynamism of sound at higher volume is so orgasmically good (to me) that on every good song you want to crank up the volume.
Mind you this is the same me who would not play above 40% of the OE alpine unit! I still remember telling Gunbir that I do not listen to loud music

I guess all good things are bad for health, so is this case where I am getting addicted to high end music.

Thanks, ST! I've got a good installer here, so I guess half the job is done. I'm doing 3-ways, so getting the positioning of the mid & tweeter right is going to be a uhhh... *female canine*! And my fussy nature makes things worse.

Yes ST. End of the day, this is all that counts. Whatever category your setup falls into, if you like the sound, you've got it where you want it!

when you have speakers that can produce dangerous SPLs without complaining (cleanly) you have to twice as careful. If it is so loud that you cant hear your self speak (in a normal tone) it is too loud.

Arrey doc baaba.. i like(d) every bit of that journey of yours( which still is going on) and i know that you have added a feather to your cap ( ICE knowledge). I envy your setup because you got some of your stuff real cheap .

Now you are in a position to suggest good setups for newbies. That is what i call as a worthwhile transition.

The pudding part..haha, I am happy about my setup but somehow like to hear different sounding setups. That is the reason why i gave away my 2 channel amp and put a set of JBL coaxials and wanna see how the head unit( to drive the coax) and the JBL amp drives the Sub.


@ST7677

Would like to hear your setup sometime and you have the right kind of approach which is take opinions/suggestions but let your judgement be the deciding factor in taking decisions.

Congratulations!!! cheers:

It is a similar story here. The OE system in my 2005 Corolla does not play MP3s. So I ventured into the world of ICE systems two months back with a budget of 10k to add an MP3 CD changer with FM modulator. But as it turns out, I have already spent Rs 1.6lakhs in past two months and the wish list is still big. My wife even complained to me once that I give more importance to my car than her. As you said, at some point it becomes more of an addiction

Ask me, I spent 2 hrs last Sunday afternoon, just sitting in the car and listening to some nice music !!!
Of course the car was on. As the sub would Thump the interior lights would go dim and the RPM meter would also dip... I hope this is normal behaviour.
