Simple Install for my Ikon
Scosche eFx Setup installed by Anwar , Auto Fusion
List of Equipment:
Pioneer 6850 Head Unit
Scosche eFx HD1400 Monoblock Amp (400 RMS @ 2 Ohms)
Scosche eFx HDX67 6.5" Component Speakers (100 RMS)
Scosche eFx HDC6900 6X9 Coaxial Speakers (75 RMS)
Scosche eFx HDW1244 12" DVC Subwoofer (300 RMS Dual 4 Ohms)
Stinger 1 Farad Capacitor
Audiobahn A6004T 4 Channel Amplifier
Full Stinger 4 Ga power and 12Ga subwoofer wiring
Speaker Wires 18Ga Scosche eFx wiring.
Pioneer makes heads with good features is what all we know, not much to say abt the 6850, it's a good buy for the price. Now, I was very curious about how Scosche will turn out as a product, as the Online info looked promising, but the stuff comes at an Entry to Mid level price segment.
Anyhow, here goes, The best thing I liked about all of the stuff is the Monoblock, its a CEA rated amp and the power chart shows 480+ RMS as the company tested output, and hell yeah it churns out good power.
The gain is just kept at about 35% as the sub is a 300 RMS DVC. The sub has a good combination of pounding hard as well as clear (thanks to good tuning by Anwar too). The component Speakers in front too sound really neat, the rear Coaxs are 2 way speakers and match really well with the front compos, overall very satisfying setup, and it has exceeded my expectations.
The Audiobahn is moved straight from my Zen, and I have already spoken enuff in another thread about it. Another thing I tested while it was being tuned is to turn on the bass boost switch into the rear channels and the rear coax took it very well, so they can churn out some bass too.
The one thing I liked about the setup is it sounds good in any Genre of music played, which is not very easy to achieve in a system at times.
Anwar too gave it a BIG THUMBS UP after tuning the system.
Below are the MRPS:
Scosche eFx HD1400 Monoblock Amp (Rs 12990)
Scosche eFx HDX67 6.5" Component Speakers (Rs 6500)
Scosche eFx HDC6900 6X9 Coaxial Speakers (Rs 4800)
Scosche eFx HDW1244 12" DVC Subwoofer (Rs 5300)
Stinger 1 Farad Capacitor (Rs 8500)
Audiobahn A6004T 4 Channel Amplifier (Rs 12500)
Stinger Wiring Kit and T distribution block (Rs 5500)

I've never considered Scosche as a speaker brand... Most curious.
How does it sound? Have you heard any of it? I don't think they have a speaker manufacturing facility anywhere in the world. This warrants real-world research.

Nice install!! Done clean as usual by Anwar!
Time for some nick picking though!!
1. I think the Front components could've been made to look more attractive.
2. And I still can't understand why you need 6X9 at the rears while you have such decent components in the front. In such a setup, the HPF will be kept on for the speakers. They will be only be playing above 80HZ or so. Then a nice pair of 6.5" co-axials matching the front components will be better than getting more expensive 6X9s. Right???
3. Does this setup really need a capacitor?? Is it such a big power drain??
Hey, I am just in my worst time of the day!! So, chill!! No offence meant.

I prefer the midbass produced by 6X9s than 6.5s thats all, for every 500 RMS power I use 1 Farad, though a Cap is not too necessary for this setup, but I still used it to let the Battery run easy and Besides I had that cap lying with me for last 6 months, so decided to fit it in this car . And anwar himself was not happy with the Material of the Rexin used to cover the Compos mounting , but there was no choice and he was leaving town too, he said we will change it when he gets some other material.
