Talking Esteem ICEd...Work begins..

Hey guys!

After bugging moralfiber, shivz and Amey for lots of hours and PMs..and being awed by their ICEs last wkend...have finally decided to dive right in to the ICE world...
Had ordered an Alpine 9883 from Crutchfield a few days back..finally got it yday...and installed today..

Rest upgrades in queue are:
Front Comps
Illusion Audio EL 6.1
Front Comps: Illusion Electra EL6.1
Rear Coax: Alpine Type-S SPS-690A
Sub: Ground Zero GZTW 30T
Amplifier for Comps and Rear Coax: Ground Zero GZTA4.120MK2
Amplifier for Sub: Panasonic CY-PA2003U
Wiring: Ichibahn IKIT8 + Ground Zero RCA
Damping: Noise Kill

Will be getting the rest of the installation done next weekend (~6th).. Posting some pics of the new HU:

What a coincidence, I am also planning on the same setup (Front Comps, Subs, Amplifiers) for my swift except for the rear. You will use Alpine Type-S SPS-690A and I plan to use illusion EL62 for rear.

Is it recommended by you or by Ajay. It would be great if Ajay is listening that there are too many fans for illusion in pune and maybe grace pune with a branch.

Ajay if you ask me. Absolutely right on with Ajay realizing the craze for Illusion Audio and Ground Zero products in Pune. Hope to see a Boom in Pune.

The damping for the entire car comes to about Rs. 4,500/-. The Ground Zero RCA leads are for Rs. 850/- if I am not wrong. Bass&Trouble and confirm.

@FATAL3RROR: Very nice setup you have there (on paper anyway!). Hope it sounds even better once the install is done

I have a similar setup in my Lancer, except the rear fills are being driven off the Alpine HU while the sub & front comps (EL 6.1) are off the amp.

Do post pics of the WIP and the final setup. All the best!

I'm flattered, thank you! For now, over to MF Drive and the famed Pappu.

Umm, I quoted the Ichibahn ISTS20 for 890/- and the GZPK10 8 gauge amp wiring kit for Rs. 2990/-, if I remember correctly. GZ RCAs are not sold loose yet, one comes with the kit though.

Sigh, those will be among the last Lucent cars for India atleast, sadly.
