I guess Panky figured since you've moved to Mumbai, your given nickname is up for grabs. So he bestowed it upon Raghvinder (LBM).

"Raghvinder = Ragu = Rags" as discussed earlier in the other thread by gurus.

Incorrect Panky. Iraghava is Rags, a nick bestowed upon him by navin. LBM is Ragu, a nickname bestowed upon him by yours truly.

This is DC we are talking about. Any GOOD, WELL SHEATHED, cable of adequate gauge will work fine. Conectors, crimping, distribution block and wiring topology will make more of a difference than cable brands at this level.

Now stop worrying.
navinji, im not at all worried about my choice. i just cant believe i was using the boss cable(it so thin even compare to 8 gauge good quality wire) the boss cables IMO will be good to wire subwoofers lol).

BTW have you heard a company named Ascon? it manufactures terminals etc. im using their terminals for my power cables. the terminal is made of copper with some silver color coating. i could see the copper after scraping off the silver thing. just wanted to ask if they are all right for the job? also rightnow my speaker wires dont have terminals. im planning to install terminals on them. any suggestions, do's and dont's etc?

I can assure you, clipto, that if you change only the power cable from L&T to any brand POWER CABLE, JBL, Monster, Audison, Tsunami,l Scosche which is also 4 gauge (25 sq mm) You will see ZERO change in performance.

I would not however claim the same thing on RCA and speaker wires.

Tool and LBM need more cross sectional diameter than you, for their power cable. Because of their higher current draw. Add another 10 sqmm of cross sectional area and you have 2 gauge. Enough for their applications. LBM has taken it safer and gone thicker than that.
hi,

yes sam bhai, im really happy with the performance of the cables and i think ive made the best choice i could in my budget. like i said in another thread the major problem i was facing was of dimming of lights with bass notes. now after changing the cable(from boss to 16 mm^2 l&t and from 16 to 25mm^2) there has been a tremendous improvement. the problem is negligible now. now im thinkng of upgrading the big 3. what wire size would be optimal? and if could put my 16mm^2 wire in use that would be great(like running it twice).

also please suggest what i should do regarding the rca cables. buying a good quality cable like audison etc would be too easy a job. i would like to diy the cable with good wires and connectors. any suggestions?

i think this is not the appropriate thread for my above queries, so point me in the right direction mods. thanks

cheers

Thanks a lot in advance everyone

0.75 would be enough. But if you wanna go for 1 inch that is your wish.

Construct the enclosure with a few non-parallel sides, and use bracing. 0.75" is the least thickness you can use. If possible, use 1" MDF for the front baffle.

When I made my first enclosure for the max it was sealed with a internal of 1.1-1.2 cu ft. Dont remember exactly but it was sound good but the low end was quite less since the volume was quite less. Go for at least 1.3-1.4 cuft to make the max sing. Also I have also asked gunbir about the size of the enclosure used in your pajero. I am also going to make a new box for max to see how it play in the best recommend size. Will post the details after reviewing it.
