Thanks a lot everyone! I really appreciate your compliments on the setup!

I am overwhelmed by the difference and I just can't get enough of listening to it now!

Thanks moral, that is a rear-view camera. My dad sometimes takes the car out and he needs it.

How much for all this setup ?
Thanks vkochar! My HU is Alpine 9856, which blueraven ummm.... didn't like. He thinks it is too bright. Something is weird.

How about an LED tube/Neon tube in the boot to show off the stuff?
Thanks Hydra, thanks a ton. I still owe you a treat. When are you coming to KK? I'll PM you my number, do please call me when you're here!

The sub sounds much, much better, believe me. I was actually thinking about replacing it with a GT4-12, when raven suggested that it would not make 'that' much of a difference. I'll probably wait and get a 601.1 with 2 GT4-12s.

In fact, we thought about the Neon, but it was pretty late by the time we finished everything, so we couldn't get one at that time.

He does have a great collection, I liked the ones he uses to tune the system! I personally like trance to a great extent, so I do have a decent collection Thanks a lot Riju, blueraven and I were talking about your setup as well!

Thanks Nimz! raven spoke about the 4" rocking components that you have! We were discussing quite a bit about your setup!

Thanks mobike, I have a monoblock CS300.1 and unfortunately, I settled for CS60.4 instead of buying the 75.4.

Before upgrade - the tuning, power cables and the RCAs weren't great - so the system would not only under perform, but also distort at moderate volumes. All that has been solved now, I can blast it out and it sounds crystal clear

It is simply amazing, the wiring and install made a world of difference - very honestly.

Pricing, hmmm.... I'm surprised Raven hasn't posted yet. I paid a total of 10,500/- after discounts, raven has the individual pricing list.

Raven is right, that would have been silly. Especially considering that the woofer in your CS1204B is a GT4-12. So why would you change it to a GT4-12 beats me.

In any case, when and if you decide to get a 601.1 with 2 woofers, it will have to be the GT5-12 now

Oh! Pardon my ignorance, the lord of Yetis, I never knew this! I thought there was a CS series sub in it! I am literally dancing in joy now! In fact, I remember when raven tuned the system, he said he was impressed with the sub.

I'm holding the upgrade for a while now, I'll see when I can have enough funds to upgrade the 60.4 as well. But whatever, only JBL will replace JBL Thanks Sam bhai!

No baba, it's a 200A fuse (Its ANL too, they dont make that in 20A). Also, you would have blown the fuse if it were 20A amidst all this glee. Not that its a big deal, but a lower rated fuse would be appropriate. Something close to the sum of the ratings of all fuses on both amps put together.

The fuse indeed is a 200 Amp ANL Fuse, actually around 100 Amps would have been ideal for this setup, but could not find any Fuses below 200 Amps that day.

Just to be safe, maybe you should change it to 100A later? But we're just being picky of course. Nice job Satya.

Oh, alright. My mistake, didn't notice it up-close. Raven, does this mean that I need to change it sometime soon? Because if it is too much, then the purpose of having it would be defeated, right?

Sorry Riju, I somehow missed your post. Yes, Satya was telling me that you need to change the power cables. It would have been great if you'd come - I'd have seen your Baleno too.

Anyway, there is always a next time. Will meet up soon!
