That sounds pretty strange to me. Can't you save the settings as presets? Do you actually fiddle with the settings for every song?

Regarding the H650, its much easier cause I got all the controls I want i.e. Treble, MID (which is main for me) & Bass. So its much easier to change tone from song to song.
Yaar do you change the setting for every song this is strange, And I have never heard anyone saying that PXA is a BAD. I myself is using one in my car, and I think this is the best thing in my car after my STEG Amps .

Like Navin Ji and Raghu said do you change the setting for every song, try this....use the FLAT setting it will help you a lot. to adjust the bass use the sub volume in the main menu of the RUX...

One more thing try taking the DEMO of the Illusion Carbon powered by Steg. Mind blowing experience...

Thats why sir I was saying that try the FLAT setting. One will take some time to get used to it but once it is set in the head it there for ever...

In Mumbai, I think you should get in touch with Creative International for Hertz and Audison. You can PM Gunbir or Jb (Autophile) to get their contact numbers etc...
It is definitely worth going for a Hertz+Audison demo before you finalise your setup.

JL is overpriced here. There are similar/better speakers in/below their prices. Still, you can demo them too. Look out for SSPL ads which is present on almost every issue of any automobile magazine.

I think it is high time B&T starts selling Illusions outside Mumbai and Gunbir ties up with more suppliers/dealers. Ain't it?

Hmmm sure I would suggest that to Ajay Bhai for the same...

But I would seriously recommend the Illusion install a listen as if not done he will be missing some thing big...

I'll say this from personal experience...I replaced the Polk Momo Coaxials in 3 days! The components will be replaced in the the next 3. With what? Hmm...that'll be a new thread

Yes! I did go for a check out of Polks yesterday. They're completely different from what they were some months ago.

LBM, it's not just the case of Illusions. Every product which has been quiet nicely discussed should be given an ear to.
A very important point before going for a demo; Prepai yourself with a very open mind. Don't listen to anything with preoccupied conclusions.

I think we need a sticky describing how to go with a demo listening session. Where're the GURUs? Long haired tatoo tree! Where're you?

This is why it is always emphasised to listen to your own ears than others'. Thanks for pointing it out.

According to me, the above combo would be brighter to my tastes and I know many will say the same. I would personally prefer Hertz Mille or HiEnergy more.

This is exactly what is known as one person' porridge is other man's poison.

In the old days Quad used to make an amp with something called a Tilt control. In cases like this that helped a lot.

Douglas Self also designed some rather nice eq circuits (very quiet). modify that to work as a tilt control (you will need a quad pot for control) and you are in business.
