Congrats, Rishabh! That's some really good equipment. And its good you decided to do some damping. 15"? My GAD! Going all the way in the sub dept. huh?

Do let us know how the whole setup sounds once it is completed will you? And Yessssssss. We want pics.

EDIT: Going sealed? If you're going to use your current amp, I'd also suggest you to go for a ported box. Moving a 15" in a sealed box will be no easy task for the current amp. But then if you are going for a good monobloc soon, I guess it will be ok.

hi,

the 15" sub was the best option i got within my budget. 2 12" hertz would have been expensive for me.

about the sound...it realy is great. the bass is good. better than before. much better. i may not urgrade soon as iam satisfied with my current setup. really...but maybe ill upgrade to a monobloc. ill definitely upgrade to monobloc lol. but first im gonna change my entire wiring and interconnects to connection audison. and that ill do in about a week or two maybe...lets see. already changed the spkkr wires to audison.

Pics? i will post in the evening as im a little busy. in delhi rightnow.

thanks,
rishabh.

Rishabh!! Nice to see your setup!!
I couldn't continue the phone call yesterday but was very happy to hear that you founf out the difference between Comps and coaxials in terms of sound!!

Did you say you're going to get one more sub??? MY GOD!!!

The equipment you have got is superb. Soon, I will be placing some of these in my car too. Congrats on your setup.

Regarding the monoblock for the amp, I think it is better to get a better 4 channel amp. Save up and buy the best you can. I would recommend atleast an Audison SRX4! You really need a great amp for that great comps and speakers.
Use the current 944 for the sub. Or exchange and get a monoblock.
Believe me, this sub can seriously offer good quality thump. What you are experiencing now should be just the tip of an iceberg. Pair it with a 400W+ RMS amp and see what it will do!!!
I have seen an Alpine 501 amp making this giant do the job in the way it is supposed to be.

hi speedzak,

thanks alot man. ya i really know what the difference between comps and co-ax. they are really good.

well i dont think ill buy another sub. i will only upgrade the amp. lets see what i upgrade to. but first ill upgrade the power and interconnect cables. when i upgrade the amp, i will also do the entire damping of the boot.

944 is a good amp IMO. but maybe ill upgrade to a better amp. but the sound quality rightnow is great. it will take some time.

thanks

rishabh

P.S. - pm me your contact info. ill give you a call sometimes

You can still post thumbnails, when you open your link, click on get linking code, you will get the thumbnail code.

In any case, when you upload a photo to imageshack, this is your screen. This is what you do.

Thanks for the pics, Rishabh! That sub looks huuuuge!

Did you have to damp the (insides of the) plastic door-trim panels? Do they rattle at high volumes?
