I guess I was the only pain in the a$$ then. I still remember all those sleepless nights both these guys sat and explained to me all that I wanted to know. Vikram18, welcome to the gang. You are not the only one to do so. Though the credit for being the first one goes to me on TBHP ? Good chaps gunman & JB are.

Power cables upgraded to zero gauge, Connection Audison connectors in place, RCA upgraded to better Monster XLNs. Now waiting for one "loaded" 80GB HDD to arrive from Delhi :-P

That was done the day before the meet. Got it strapped better along with Velcro underneath. I've tuned it pretty well; there's just this little rattle on the left front door that's driving me nuts. I guess it occurs only at a certain frequency. Perfectly damped for most songs and then suddenly goes thrrrrrrrrrrr on one!

Locating exact source of the rattle may be very confusing in the car due to reflections. On the other hand, it could be as silly as the seat belt clasp rattling against the seat side / plastic, or a wire inside the plastic cover of A or B pillar.

,even i was getting a very irritating sound on certain songs...even i was confused that no sound should come as heavy damping was done....then the most stupid thing.The sound was coming from the perfume bottle vibrating due to heavy bass.

Check for any loose things,stuff in the boot,seat belt,stuff in dashboard etc.

Your 4-year old son has his own screw driver set? Navin, you are one indulgent father, most parents won't give their kids such things for the fear that they'll swallow a bit or something.

a. he is 5.
b. he has a simple set which has a single handle and interchangable bits made by Taparia Tools. not some facny expensive set.
c. his only real use for this is to change the batteries of his toys.
