My osteoporotic bones will probably crumble to dust long before I reach Delhi. Maybe I can sweetly request someone from Delhi to visit Kolkata.

And of course, do let us know your feedback.

OT: There is a Kolkata team-bhp google group that was created for T-Bhpians from Kol to interact... why don't you join us? PM me or planet_rocker, and we can help you out.
Have met Vinay at Glix a couple of times but not spoken to him about MDF fabrication yet. Will do that soon. What have you planned to install in your car?
Great to know about the Kolkata TBHP group & have pmed you for your help. Thanks.

Or, another good samaritan option is you, Zak or Hydra compile them into a torrent and allow everyone to download!! It has to be loss-less format though :-)

The right way to test your sound stage is to listen to tracks that you are familiar with. Those pink noises can help to figure out just the sensitivity, me feels.

Exactly! I agree completely. This is what I do too. I never feel at peace till I check my system with these tracks after each little change.

There are a few tracks that I play incessantly -- I never get tired of them. These tracks are a great way of knowing what's different, what's good, and what's bad. In fact, once you get used to using these tracks, you even use specific parts of each track to test for specific sounds and responses.

There're a lot of Audio samplers available online. Test cds are available for download too.
I also have my own personal favorite tracks which I like to hear when I audition different installs.
Some of my favorites are in MP3 format too. But lossless is necessary for a proper audition. SACD, XRCD etc.. Are great in detailing and only very good equipment can bring out the goodness it these.

BTW, are there any SACD head units in car audio? Off the shelf ones?

@Hydrashok - Would you remember the brand of MDF you used here? Also, was it phenol- or urea-bonded?
Can I also request you to pm me Zuheimi's email address & telephone numbers, if he has no objections?
Thanks in advance & sorry everyone for excavating a somewhat old but really wonderful thread.

can you guys explain this? sk456 has the same set of compos and since we cant audition both , which is placed in the best location and why

The midrange needs to installed so it is isolated from the back-wave of the midbass. When the midbass hits heavy bass notes, the back-wave will affect the midrange's cone, if both are in the same enclosure.

When the door is sealed-off with a damping sheet and only the midbass is firing into this sealed-off enclosure, the back-wave of the midbass stays within the sealed enclosure. The midrange is installed so it is outside this enclosure (since it is installed on a slightly raised spacer). This way, both drivers are happy.

I personally think the Santro has a somewhat better install postiion for the midrange, as it is firing straight into the cabin this way. And no additional cutting is needed on the door. The tweeter can be placed on the dash or just next to the ORVM adjusters on the door, stil keeping the midrange and tweeter close together. The only slight disadvantage is that the back of the midrange's install positon is open and not enclosed. I don't think this will cause thaaaaat much degradation in overall SQ.

With the Pioneer amp? Why? What is the reason do you think which makes it better?

JK

I have heard both setups... Granted, I have heard the Santro setup for far longer periods than I did the Palio setup. But the midrange in the Santro was more... in your face and open sounding than in the Palio. That of course was due to the midrange being on axis in the Santro.
