There is no delay as such in teh plan... Am waiting for the new LRX series to arrive from Italy.....
Also am yet undecided on the speakers...... .. Will need to hear some more stuff before I can take the plunge....
Will need to explore more exhaustively since it is a MAJOR UPGRADE... which will serously deplete my already depleted bank account....

Nice to read about your first step. Damping is well worth the effort and money. Many people ignore it in Good ICE installs.
That DIY creation should be another secret weapon from JB & co I think.

Sad to know that You're still confused with the speakers. But in a way, That's nice too. Because while You're waiting for the New LRX to arrive, you can audition many of the decent brands of speakers to experience yourself and use your own ears to make the final decision.
Wise decision to use your own ears for the job. That's the most sensible thing to do while choosing ICE.

Installing is not Rocket Science. There are no secret portions. Just a bit of common sense, a lot of elbow grease and some experience.

OMG!!! Yeah, OH MY GOD!!!!
Don't tell me you putting those into a Santro!! The car price would be cheaper than the ICE it seems.

Hey, move on everybody! We have another BIG install coming up!!

SK, that set is really droolworthy! And 7" mid-basses -- cool! And you've finally decided on dome mids, huh?

And like Zak said, that's some really serious money going into a Santro! (Counting even just the front comps and amp -- leave alone the HU and the ID sub). I can't imagine how good they'd sound, fed by that audiophile HU of yours.

Please USE YOUR EARS before you pay hard cash for expensive speakers Please Please Please. At these prices one man's food can easily be another man's poison.

completely to what NavinJi said. Use this as an underlined advice before you put your money down.
Just make sure you know what You're buying.
Energy series from Hertz is quiet different from many other speakers. You used to enjoy it I think. Now, you want to get something more better sounding. Right?
My advice is to try changing the amp first. Put that LRX You're getting. And feel the sound. If you still feel like upgrading the speakers, That'll make more sense.
Your current Pioneer amp is a very basic amp and it is the most inferior thing in your current setup.

Keep us updated.

wel I HAVE heard my set up using a Audison LRX... there WAS a considerable improvement .... Nevertheless, a speaker upgrade IS needed together with a better Amp...... I WILL try and hear more stuff before I finally handover the greenbacks.... It is however not always possible to hear ICE... especialy componenent speakers as they are not easily installable. ...
One soemtimes does have to go with reviews and experience of fellow ICERS... What I have attempted is tried to hear speakers of different BRANDS of similar price ranges...
Most importantly, I have tried to undertand what good music should sound like... I hope that enables me to make a good choice... Tips from you audio gurus has cetainly helped me in this direction.
