Boss, everybody knows, I like Driven. He is the funniest man in Delhi. Waaaay more humorous than anyone else I know.

I think i would like to put Driven in my car at 50% discount, now that's TRUE In-car entertainment.

Default Music Rediscovered!!!!!

Finally, finally, I AM IN th club!!!!

m now a proud owner of ALPINE MRV-F340 amp and HERTZ SK-165 component speakers.

I went to DRIVEN today. First thing he did was throw away my present ICE (except for HU). Loss of 6K!!!!

Then he installed the new heart of my ICE - THE AMP!!!! Really seems like a powerhouse.

Then came the speakers. earlier I had 4 speakers in my car. he threw all of them and installed HERTZ components.

Mannnn....the sound clarity is awesome!!! 10 times better than my JBL 4" + Chinese Pioneer 350W.

All wiring - AUDISON...6.5K approx.

I never knew in car music could be so sweeeettt yet powerful.


amp - 12K
comps - 8.8K
wiring - 6.5K
misc. -.7K

TOTAL: 28K

And all I bought were 2 speakers and an amp!!!

but a small problem: the installation guys blew of some fuse. Now my power windows and power steering are not working!!!

ggoyal, congrats on the new setup! Which series of Hertz did you install? DSK (Dieci series) series, or ESK (Energy series)? I'm asking because you mentioned 8.8K for the comps. If it's the ESK (which I think it is) you must not be using rear-fill? And I guess Driven has bi-amped the components?

Enjoy your music :-)

It's a good amp. Pity, Alpine doesn't make them anymore.

You can't compare between the earlier and the latter!! That's like throwing an Alto away and getting a Corolla!!! And doing comparison between them!!

Default Name's ESK...Hertz ESK!!!!!

Comp series is ESK-165.

Yes...I do feel a need for rear fill...seems kind of empty without rear speakers. After all, I was used to rear fill music for 5 years.

Driven is saying once I install an amp, i wont feel the need. And in the meanwhile if I want rear fill, then he will convert my JBL CS-2065 in satellite speakers (by putting them in a customized box and hanging them from the roof). is it advisable??? will they do a good job???

Dude! Atleast you learnt about different brands and stuff etc... LOL!!
And indeed Sam's reply was good enough to explain it.

There's nothing like touching the wrong nerve.... etc.. Just that Brand centric discussions will be a whole lot controversial.
Nice you know now!!! And let's just stop it there!!

Regarding your rear fills, no need for boxes, satelites etc..
I'll suggest you to fit in a pair of co-axials in the rear somewhere (preferably in the rear doors).
Even the 4" will be just ok! And a 6" will be far better!
Get a matching speaker to your front components if you're getting new ones or just stick with your old 4".

@ggoyal_83 : Similar thing happend with me when my friend went to get front components for his Getz, the installer was suggesting him Hertz, Kicker & soundstream speakers\componants as he said they were better(yes thats what he told him) when I talked to him & threw some jargons read models numbers for the comps(Thanks to Sam) & few stuff like front sound stage blah blah(thanks to ICE forum at TBHP ) He then said yes JBL are good but the others are good too & somewhat better.
My friend was a confused soul as I was talking to the dealer on his fone. Hi budget was actually for just a pair of speakers was getting alpine coaxs for around 2k I think. I knew what kind of music he listens to & was firm on JBLs.

To cut the long story short my friend is extremly happy for the money he spent(other were expensive) & thanks me till date. So like others said to each his own :-)

Guys, Audio is a (partly) subjective science. Once a speaker or amp or any other component is well designed and built a listener's preference is subjective also becasue I believe that we are unable to objectively qualify the differences heard (between any 2 components). By this I mean that all the FFTs and 3D spectrum analyses in the world cannot prove with 100% (or maybe even 80%) accuracy that one brand will sound "better" than another (this is befre we even get into a discussion as to what "better" means).

Why JBL, Infinity, Revel, etc.. for example are all made by Harman Intl. People grow accustomed and know what to expect when one says JBL or Infinity; and HK wants to retain all it's user base. In fact the old men here will remember definitions like "East Coast", "West Coast", and "British" sound.

Now mix in the vaguries of install, application, enviroment, etc.. and all Hell breaks loose. This is why we try to avoid comparing brands (esp the reputed ones). Suffice to say we do recommend avoiding a few (Boss, Xplod, etc...).
