Huh? Did a speaker upgrade happen? Those big XOs look like 3 ways? And I thought Vikram had comps in front and 6x9s in back?

Beautiful Amp. I wish I could listen to it :(

AHA! I knew it. That's the "chotta" XO. And the big one is indeed the 2-way's XO. My mistake. HT20R SuperTweeter?

Hi, was interested in knowing -

1. The location where the supertweeter has been installed
2. How they have been connected to your amplifier
2. Sound-wise, the effect of adding the supertweeter to your existing 2-ways, especially impact on staging & imaging

Would be great if you could spare some time to share your feedback/opinion - thanks in advance!

1. They're installed on the dash, just short of the stock location for tweeters.

2. You'll have to ask the BBW guys.

3. You've already heard the amp so that's made a HUGE difference. I've installed the tweeters in the door panels of my Civic. That had affected both soundstage and imaging. So now, instead of the soundstage ending near the HU, it has been extended to almost the windshield. Imaging is far better and now I'm inside the music. I hope I'm making sense as I'm not at all well versed with the normal music terminology. I only have my ears to guide me, so I cannot discourse on length on finer points.
The supertweeters have enhanced my music experience considerably and coupled with the amp, I'm simply ecstatic.

Sounds great, thanks for your feedback! Am now increasingly tempted to add this to the list of things to happen to my car shortly (I have 2-ways in my car installed in a similar fashion to yours...)

The most reliable guide, IMHO

I guess this is what the supertweeters are all about. I've not heard a setup with proper supertweeters at all, but from what I've heard about them, they are supposed to add to the music without actually making their presence felt -- by just adding air and depth (and not overt highs), thus enhancing the width and height and "airiness" (for lack of a better word) of the soundstage.

Looks like they are doing the job really well!

Congrats again Vikram! I'll chalk-up your install to my (growing) list of all those really good installs I won't be able to listen to. I wish I could take a month off work and come up north on an ICE Pilgrimage and listen to all those good installs.

Sorry to bump this thread but a little Birdy told me that Vikram Bhai got some changes/updates on his setup.

So Vikram Ji can you shed some light on this !!!

LBM - I'm truly surprised at how word gets around but I can fairly guess the route.
You're right. I've changed everything except for the Genesis 5-Channel amp.

My current setup is:

Fronts - CDT Audio, HD Series Components
Rear - CDT Audio Ovals
HU - Eclipse CD 7100

I've added a Tornado 2000W Monoblock and changed my sub to a 12" Kicks, which is still not final; plan to audition a couple more before I'm sure.
I've also thrown out all the monster cables and now have truly awesome Audioplus interconnects. I had zero guage power, so haven't touched that. A while ago, I had the car re-damped with Dynamat Xtreme, and I must admit, it's made a huge difference. 2 Capacitors complete this current setup.

I have our EVO6 (Bhushan) to thank for letting me audition his Audi TT, which truly opened my eyes, or should I say ears!

The imaging and soundstage are to die for, and the midbass kicks like a mule. The Civic has never sounded roomier and now I have all my fave ladies right on the windshield in front of me

The install looks absolutely stunning. Will post some nice Pics soon. I believe our own MF might actually do that far before I do.

Most of my Pune T-Bhp friends have heard it and they all quite like what they've heard and seen. The equipment is still running-in; I can't wait for it to all open up!

Ramie - Anytime dear friend, absolutely anytime. Do PM me your cell number; I just might be in Mumbai next week.

Congrats Vikram! Heard some chatter about CDT very recently... didnt know it was you.

How did you lay your hands on the 7100?

Good to hear that bro, Atleast now you know what HERTZ and what SINGS.

Congrats for the upgrade.

For the sub I would suggest a visit to Ajay Bhai. I think he has something special for you.
