Really? its not the install that I found nice, but the eventual utility and economy of such a setup.

MF, it sounds very good actually. Thats the Kenwood 5033U USB deck and hidden somewhere in the boot is an Alpine 5ch amp.

Really good install! Great space management!!!

And a proper sized midbass has been fitted up front too! I guess the amp/s is/are below the front seats and the tweets are on the dash, right?

The installer has done a great job here. I bet the owner is real happy.

EDIT: Just saw your post, Gunbir An F450? He fitted that too in the boot? Hats off to the installer!

Installer is our own CNG crazy Driven. and the owner gets 23Kms or so off Rs 19/Kg of CNG... Of course he's happy... grinning from ear to ear he is...

seriously speaking, I'm a few petrol refills away from being CNG converted myself... must not give in...

Driven huh? I guessed as much Great job, Manik!

You on CNG? Now I'd like to see how you pull that off and keep all your equipment. Maybe a NOS sized CNG tank that you can chrome and fool the ladies into thinking you have NOS

Oh man!
That's a great job! The front is a 2 way? Or 3 way? Just curious.

Is it possible to elaborate a bit more of how the install has been executed?

Hi all,

- well the Santro doesnt need the spacers in this case as the midbass doesn't foul with the window mechanism
- Its the Hertz ES300 Sub
- The front is a 2way Energy ESK165

some more pics...

Is the spare wheel secure ? Man, that tank looks ugly. Do all CNG tanks have this sort of colouring ?

Even my Accent's boot is full of ICE+CNG ,and believe me both the things are so addictive that i cant live without them at all,CNG makes me drive the car whole day without going bankrupt and ICE keeps me entertained.

Default Audio after CNG?

Hi all,

I have used my swift for 5 years. It has awesome alloys, a K&N apollo, a monoblock, a big sub, a separate 4 channel for the front components... and all was well.

But then I decided to get married. Chose to revive (family-arise) this car and drive her for another 2 years. The first thing to do is to install CNG. So with a heavy heart, I have removed the sub and amp. no more bass. CNG will be fitted tomorrow.

Having said this, my awesome morel components still remain. and I dont want to say bye bye to good car audio. i wanted advice from you guys on 2 things.

1) is there anyway i could still have a sub in this car? if so, any risk to the CNG tank?

2) if i do decide against a sub, what about a tray and 6x9s? any worthy mentions? i will probably have to exchange my mono for a decent 4 channel for components and ovals at the back.

hoping you guys can help. thanks in advance.

cheers.
Anirban
