Wink nice set up !!!

Hi !

That is a good set up;

Would have loved to hear it.

I stay in Bombay, so it seems difficult.

But, I shall be in ND on 31.08.2006 for the Audio SHow @ Hotel Ashok, if you are to visit, maybe we coul meet & I could listen........

What car is this installed in ?

Speakers: Hertz ESK163.3
Amp: Pioneer Premier GM-6150F
RCA Interconnects: Audison FT2600
Speaker Cable: Audison FT214
Power Cables: Audison FPK300 Kit
Damping: AZaudiocomp FonoMat225

Thanks,

BHAGWAN

Is that impotant ?

I am sure every person works on a budget, but when an install is based aound Hertz & Audison, cost in never an issue, it is the end result that matters, IMHO.....

Speakers: Hertz ESK163.3
Amp: Pioneer Premier GM-6150F
RCA Interconnects: Audison FT2600
Speaker Cable: Audison FT214
Power Cables: Audison FPK300 Kit
Damping: AZaudiocomp FonoMat225

Although, I would have prferred Amplifiers from Audison / Hertz instead of the Pioneer Premier used. In fact, in place of the Hertz ESK163.3 I would have liked to have seen the

installed. I like this component a lot.

Your set up must be great !

Please do understand that I respect people that spend 15 % of their car's value on their audio set up. 50 K V/S 350 K [Santro]

Does your sub go into a 'sealed' enclosure ? or is it 'ported' ?
What was the recommended cft [cubic foot] requirement for the woofer ?
What was the material of the enclosure ?
Weight of the enclosure ?

If I understand this correctly, you have 1

http://www.hertzaudiovideo.com/default_en.htm

Energy - ESK 163 speaker in your front door ?
1 sub woofer in your boot ?

Must be a great set up, a little inclined towards the low frequencies [I feel] but should be nice to listen to;

All the best !! Enjoy !!

WRONG BHAGWAN!!... He has the ESK 163 3-way Components PLUS a sub...

So that makes it 3 speakers on each side... PLUS a sub!... You cant get sonically more accurate than that!
