Rishab, I doubt you were told its Dynamat. Driven possibly told you its like Dynamat, which may be the cause of confusion. That said, it works like Dynamat Extreme, has a similar composition but its a shade better as its more adhesive (it sticks like anything: one wrong move and its stuck forever).

And, its cheaper. A 36 sq ft bulk pack of Dynamat Extreme costs $250 retail, and sells here for around 10k. Compare this to what you paid for a slightly better product in my opinion (at worst some call it equivalent of Dynamat Extreme): Rs 1900 per sq mtr. If you were to buy 36 sq ft of this stuff it would cost you Rs 6355. Which of course is cheaper than the Dynamat Extreme.

As for the ESK165 and ESK165S difference. They are both the same set except for one difference: the midbass. The former is based on the EV165 midbass while the latter is based on the EV165S midbass. The EV165S midbass is a shallow version of the EV165 with a mounting depth of 57mm against 65mm in the regular version. The ESK165S is not available in India.

hi gunman,

sorry i didnt read your post. i forgot to write "think". it should have been "i think i was told its dynamat". gunman it doesnt make a difference to me if its dyna or aaudiocomp asa long as they perform well.

well its my mistake and iam really sorry for it. ill be more careful in future. i created the confusion. just wanted to clear my confusion. didnt want to hurt anyones reputation.

trust me, im really happy with the install and the stuff i got. sorry once again manik and gunman. it was a pleasant experience and it still is a pleasant experience.

cheers

Gunbir, does damping material stick to freshly greased doors? That's what my mechanic advised me to put after the anti-rust stuff failed!

No it will not. Before applying any sort of damping material make sure that the surface is absolutely cleaned free from dust and grease. Clean it with petrol and apply damping material after drying.

Aye Clip. Just get yourself a D510 yaar.
Pumps subs really well. I will show you when you make it to Ludhiana this Sunday.
Costs around 9k w/o B&W

What would be the best subs to go with the Pioneer D510. I had these in India and am planning to get it here to UK through one friend. So can anyone suggest the best sub with the box to match this.

hi,

this amp can pump 600w cont into a 2 ohm load so you should get a dvc. a dual 4 ohm wired in parallel will be the best option.

let us know what type of music you listen to and other details like budget, if you are ready to sacrifice boot space etc. that would help the gurus in advising you.

cheers

I think it is 500 watts not 600. Correct me If I am wrong.

Also like clip asked budget and music.

Actually its an Merc A class, so you can imagine the boot space, but I can sacrifice it as it will be a detachable one (i.e keep the box at home, if I require the space). and I usually listen to Hip Hop types with good bass. I was almost on the verge of taking the GTO 75.4 for driving the fronts and rear, but the installers here are very time concious and told me to come some other day, (I guess these guys are not interested in making money). With that I decided I will wait for 1 more month so that when my friend is coming here, I can get the D510 and X374 amps and the Pioneer DEH-7800 HU. These all are lying at my house gathering dust. My parents wont use such things in any case. So apart from these I am ready to shell out good money on sub woofers which would match the D510. My budget can go upto 10 to 15k INR. Thanks a lot in advance.

Also in continuation to my earlier post, the JBL GTO 75.4 is available here with B and W for 8000 INR approx. Is it better to take it than getting the Pioneer X374 which I have already. Just trying to reduce the luggage from India. heheh. If its not of much difference, I wont invest it here.

if i were you, i would get a hertz 15" dual 4 ohm sub. dont know if an energy 15" dvc is there. or try ground zero. quite a few people are using it here and its reviews are good.

if you can stretch your budget a little(thats what we are here for. we wont let you get away so easily. you need to go above your budget) little as in 2k, you can get an idq 15". IMHO its worth every quarter anna. it has excellent detail, its fast, accurate, can go really low and loud and is really a down to earth guy.

you will never regret buying the idq pm gunbir for info on idq and hertz. for gz, pm b&t.

The GTO75.4 with B&W is a highway robbery at that price.
But it will run only 4ohm bridged for your sub @284WRMS rated power which is not too bad if you ask me personally. A good quality Sub and 75.4 will make enough thumping for a compact car like the A class.

What are the other options your installers give you in your budget?

My above statements are assuming you DO NOT want to overshoot your budget. Do browse the forums though. Lets see how much time you can stick to your budget

I think it is (since so much more power at 8k price)

Why dont you buy from US only though? (assuming you live there.)
