Default Love my ride so much it HERTZ

I guess the only "fitting" place for my 100th post would be the ICE section. This is surely the first time that ICE has given me so much trouble; I've NEVER chopped and changed so much.

I started off with a JVC EXAD HU, Polk Momo comps and co-axials, Alpine 4-channel amp, JBL GTO series monoblock and Sub. Firstly, I didn't like the Momo co-axials and found the comps far too bright. I replaced the Co-axials without an audition with Vibe. Again, no-go. Replaced the HU with it's TouchScreen cousin. Thought about the Focal polyglass and had the option of Boston Pro but then was educated about metal dome tweeters vs Silk/fabric dome tweeters by an enlightened soul (Gunbir) and finally, this is what is going into my Civic soon.


Fronts : HERTZ Hi-Energy HSK 165 Components

Rears : HERTZ Hi-Energy HCX 690 Co-axials

Subwoofer : HERTZ HX300D

Amplifier: Audison SRX 4

All cables will be upgraded to zero gauge, Monster. Just can't wait for Monday, and a certain Subwoofer Box to arrive.

I love the title, Vikram!

Good equipment there. I'm sure you'll be sporting a "perma-grin", once the install gets done.

A "certain" sub-box huh? Your install has been blessed!

Do post pics and a review once the install is done.

Wow! This is something awesome! And it HERTZ! Great Vikram.

Nice choice of equipment. I know you're going to get it installed by a very good installer too. That certain subwoofer box really sounds good to me now. When is it going to be finished? Not easy to wait.
Please post your pics and report as you go with your install.

Lately, Pune is getting quiet hot on ICE. I think we should pay a visit down the lane to listen to all those mindblowing setups there. Where's Moral ka Fiber???
