Well am not to aware bout the DC how good they are with their job of Audio Installation. I would never take any chances of geting a shady job not only coz its CRV but even if it was car worth half the money or may be even less that of CRV. My experience has taught me a lot. Has anyone heard of Chandrika electronic's Umanath Shetty based at dadar west near portug.. church. Its sumeone whom i know in town had got upgrade done on his Merc C220 ..was a clean install and the car sounded good but that was like couple of years back. That person also told me that he is a service dealer for few brands and also takes care of demo vehicles. Any one here had any experience with him or any clue about his work.

a) I trust my EARS but am open to ideas from anyone I even listen to my son (BTW I used to use my sister's and wife's ears earlier but I find that my son's ears are also very good). I am one this forum to LEARN as well and I must say I have learnt a LOT. Thank you B&T, Sam, Gunbir, Blue Raven, Autophile, Zak, Hydra, et. al.

b) If I knew where Jacob was I'd have asked him to do my installs since my back wont allow me this luxury anymore.

Mr. Shetty is a very nice gentleman, knowledgeable person and a good installer. You are right, he has done some popular demo car installs although I'm not sure I can name them. Last time I spoke to Mr. Shetty, he had told me that he's working on some things for Alpine and due to this he is not able to dedicate much time to retail work. Maybe the staff at the shop could still help you, I would assume that he must have a good team there.

Default Iceing up my Honda CRV - need advice

Dear ICE Gurus, need some advice
I am planning the below setup for my Honda CRV at Bangalore

Head Unit - Pioneer F60 BT
Amplifier - Hertz HDP5 5channel amp
Front Speakers Morel elate 6.5 inch
Rear Speakers - Rainbow 5.25 inch C230 Vanadium
Digital Signal Processor Pioneer DEQ P 800 5.1 Ch DSP
Subwoofer - JL Audio 10W7 10 inch Sub
Centre Channel Speaker- Alpine SBS 0715 Centre Channel Speaker

Have a few Doubts

Is the Hertz 5channel Amplifier enough to carry the load for this entire set up
Do I need another amp to power the subwoofer. If yes please suggest
Planning to use Dynamat or STP for damping. Which is better? Dynamat or STP ? and how much Quantity of Damping sheet will I require
What wires do I need to need? Was able to find this on ebay.. Will this do the job or can you suggest anything better? Also will this suffice or any other wires required for subwoofer,etc
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NVX-XKIT46-5...pVzhUF&vxp=mtr
Planning to get the installation done by Anwar of Top Gear Kormangala. Is this guy still good or do you suggest somebody better

Thanks to everybody in advance

Why are you ordering wite kit from ebay?
The installation centre would have good quality wires. Just pick up a good quality kit at the store.
You would need speaker wires anyways.
True 16awg copper writes would suffice.

What is the objective of this setup. Sql?

How will the 5th channel be powered?

The amp can drive the 4 speakers and the sub.
And since its an suv, You can expect the cabin gain to play a huge part in the loudness of the sub.

The w7 bigger size generally gets boomy overpowering the front mids. The 10 inch unb the right box might get you what you are looking for. My view is if you want sq any decent 10 inch would do the job.
