Yes, this thing exists and one does not have to go to Autocop alone to get it, it's available in market, only thing is Accessory shop guys or for that matter Car dealers also are least bothered about using it, our Indian consumer protection has absolutely no planning or rules in place.

Snaps of the product are below,



Some very good quality ones by scosche also also available which maybe just 2 or 3 accessory shops in Bangalore stock and use.

Yes it is a Honda city and it's not a swift.
That NHC has been fitted with a Imported SCOSCHE harness and the snap of the Swift harness above that is made in India.

The harness is not common and even the Swift petrol has a different harness from Diesel.

The Hondas have common harnesses for most cars except for the 07 up Civic which has additional controls on the harness.

Hi!
I have been quoted the following:-

AMP:- Blaunpaunt GTA 4 - Rs. 6500
Amp Kit:- Audison - Rs. 3300
MDF tray:- Rs.450
Wiring: - @Rs. 80 or Rs. 180
Labour Charges:- Rs. 500

With the above combination, the installation process is costing a cool 5K. I am confused about the wiring and the AMP kit. Audison seems a bit too expensive. Is there any other decent brand??? Also, what wiring to go by?
I heard the whole installation process doesnt go beyond 2K. Please advice.
After, much deliberation I have got the following but I sense a poor installation will screw it up.
HU:- Pio 5050 UB
Component:- Infinity 6020 CS
Coax:- JBL GTO 937
Amp:- Will go for Blaun GTA 4 800Watt

I am using one of those wire harness on my getz that is the best way to direct plug and play for the factory socket without any 'kata-piti' and 'taping-shaping'

OG as in Original Gangsta? Well thats what it used to mean...

I think it would be OG, Connection Audison FPK300 is Rs 3500 retail.

MDF tray for 450 is very low. Which installer is this? Either it's a low quality board, or I suspect more likely he is making his profit elsewhere. (see below)

80 and 180 was what I was quoted exactly as well for wiring. I believe both are Connection Audison wiring, just different guages. (The thinner one is blue and the thicker is yellow in colour).

6 months ago, the GTA4 was quoted to me by official Blau dealers at about 6K b&w. So that should be lesser. But I think maybe that has been transferred to making your mdf tray cheaper. The amp kit is also okay priced AFAIK, but read around, there are many cheaper but decent options.

I suggested to a colleague to get JBL compos for the front, and 6x9's for the rear. HE later said that he got 6" coax instead. I said fine , but you'd get less bass ( car is an ikon)

A week later he called me to check the car, and I was stunned by the sheer incompetence.
The 6" coax was mounted in front. along with the tweeter from the compo. the compo's woofer was mounted behind, ON the existing 6x9's

That is the right opinion and one needs to have patience in installation too..

So, after my displeasure in the install, I had to choose between driving 11kms to Technokrat (and his exotic prices)or 350kms to a Team-BHPian Installer. Im so glad to have chosen the latter.Full marks for the dedication and enthusiasm shown by Blueraven and his team.

My advice to anybody who wants to install ICE in Chennai: Go to Bangalore.

There are great ICE installers in Chennai..its just that you DONT know who they are or how they do it cos you are NOT giving them a free hand!

See there is always a problem if one acts as if he knows the stuff, the guy actually doin it will get irritated!

I dont dispute the fact that Blueraven is not a good installer,,but to make a blind statement that Technocrat is bad etc is rubbish..You've had a bad experience based on your inputs..It cant be the same for everyone

Ive personally known a lot of guys who've had GREAT installs done by Technocrat.

And music listening preference is another matter altogether!


Nitrous..sorry i just read this post and hence the delayed response!

Deepak asrani is a great installer too. But if the clients go and tell him what to do, maybe he does not like it!

Hence the infamous name.
