Zak even i was wondering bout the kicker @ 3.4K, last time i checked kicker in Karol bagh i think the L7 was for 15K. i might be wrong


anyway

For a budget amp i think pioneer 6100F is decent, And sourcing these amps in NOIDA will be difficult you will have to go to Lajpat nagar.

I think you could get amps from pioneer, JVC, alpine, JBL and offcourse SONY in NOIDA, for others its gotta be lajpat or Kb or drivennnnnnnn


For lajpat nagar u could look at AUTO MARC or ELEGANT. They keep original JBL wiring kit too. Most of the noida shops keep BOSS wiring kit.

A DVC Kicker Sub for 3.4K? I'm stumped too. That wiring setup has also got me confused. Could you elaborate, ramie?

ggoyal, Kickers are usually used in SPL setups. Make sure you listen to a Kicker before you buy one.

JBL amps give very good SQ and are proven in lots and lots of installs. You can't go wrong with one of those. Don't worry, with JBL you will get the quality you are paying for.

And the Kicker mentioned in this thread is a sub, and not an amp.

Hello!!
Kicker does'nt make anything in that price range bro! That seems to be a serious typo or that K!cker is definitely fake.

The A/D/S amp is not the cheapest option. There are better brands available for similar or less prices.
A/D/S used to make good amps till some time ago. And they had some nice build quality too. But that is strictly the past. Nowadays, their products are scarce and not upto the mark. Yes, this is my experience with A/D/S and that's just my opinion.

It is always better to buy stuff which is easily maintanable and servicable. JBL, Sony, Hertz etc.. has exellent service backup and their products carry genuine warranty also.

Get yourself JBL or Hertz. They're the best you can buy in that price range. Hertz sound better but you'll have to shell out a bit more too.

If you like more rock, trance and hip hop etc.. then close your eyes listen to JBL with your ears open. You'll love it.
If you're more interested in classical, Indigenous, Vocal and rhythms, then close your eyes and listen to Hertz, You'll love it.
This doesn't mean that other music will sound bad on them, I mean these are the music they excel in!

Whatever you do, make sure you use your own ears and the thingy in between before you make your purchase. Listening yourself will be the best practice in ICE!!

Hi speedzak well majorly i wire my car-myself and this kind of wiring is mostly used for multiple subwoofers and DVC subwoofers as monoblock Class-D amplifiers are expensive.You can even attach 2 x 2channel car amplifiers to 1 DVC subwoofer and the ground effect and clarity is mind blowing,as the subwoofer do no jarr.

Kicker EX series subwoofer you get it for 3.4k.

Ggoyal you may even try out the sony 504 which is about 4.3k - 4.8k approx. or if you want to go for massive power then you may switch to JBL's,Kicker, or ADS i would even reccomend you Twister 8300 slim neon and fan cooled based 1200watts 4channel car amplifier which has the capability to take 2 x 15"inch M.A.Audio Subwoofers Using the DVC Wiring Technique, this amp will cost you somewhere around 12.8k personally my favourite i will post the pics today of my car where i have the following configuration.

HU: Pioneer 6850.
Blaupunkt TH series speakers 3-way.
2 x 12"inch DUB Style Twister inverted magnet 1200watts subwoofer DVC
1 x 15"inch M.A.Audio 900 x 2watts DVC subwoofer
2 x Twister 8300slim 1200watts each 4channel car amplifier
1 x JVC 2channel 250watts car amplifier.
Monster cable & Kicker Wiring installation
1.5Farad Earthquake 2000watts Capacitor
Cliff Design Dome-Tweeters 80hz 30watts
Sony Original Front Door Speakers 6"inch(Cant rem the model no.)
Cross-over Network
Street-Wire Fuse-Box
3 x Street-Wire RCA Jack cables
6 RCA jumpers.

the installation is done In a second-hand esteem VXI 1998 model.
Syetem price approximately 68k including Headlight Strobe.The wiring and installation is done by myself as a passion for setting uo huge systems...

Friends to tell you frankly these things are not expensive enough the only thing is we buy it expensive and make their rates to high and premium class, if you can afford a 306subwoofer m sure you can afford a kicker 12"inch ex and ez series for a little 20-35% more and enjoy the best sounds in your car.

Guys just check out the Audiobahn DUB200 subwoofer so thats next what i am installing atleast 4 in my accent Glx with Boss Audio BLX5000 x 2no. and HU most preferably Pioneer AVIC N2.Sooner the installation will be done and I will post the pics.

Cost of the setup is about 82k.

3.4k for kicker i was talking about the subwoofer.
enjoy ur day eve1 take care my friends.

You have a tweeter that has a max frequency of 80hz? Wow! That can only be achieved by a briefcase packed amplifier that has clitters, otherwise it is impossible!

Good find prince 85, it's the same guy. Kem chho ramnik bhai?

Ramie2400,

a) we diusuade the use of SMS on this forum.
b) I have yet to see a tweeter go as low as 80Hz. THat must be a typo.
c) you have 3 subs, 9 channels of amplification (I assume some of these are bridged) and only one pair of Blaupunkt TH speakers, a pair of OEM sonys and a par of Cliff tweeters. I am not sure about this please confirm as your system looks horribly unbalanced on paper.

Wow... an 80Hz tweeter... and I thought my CD2CompNeo horns that went down to 800Hz were the cats whiskers. Its true after all, Dilliwallas are way behind Mumbaikars...

Ramie, I look forward to your install pics...
