A bit late but still wanted to ask about the output power of the Panasonic amp when used to drive the sub. I read that the output was 200 x 2 @ 4 ohms and the sub you were using was rated around 400 W.

So is the output now around 400 watt when used for single channel ?? (which would actually make it a very suited amp for 350-400 W subs)

As per the manual the spec are as follows:
Power Output (“EIA” Power):
1-CH (Monaural): 480 Wx1 (20 Hz - 20,000 Hz, 1%, 4 ohms)
2-CH (Stereo): 200 Wx2 (20 Hz - 20,000 Hz, 1%, 4 ohms)

Maximum Power Output:
1-CH (Monaural): 550 Wx1 (20 Hz - 20,000 Hz, 10%)
2-CH (Stereo): 260 Wx2 (20 Hz - 20,000 Hz, 10%)

For more detail about the setup Ajay will be the best person to ask. Will post the pics very soon. Watch this space.
One detail that you forgot to mention is that you are using the whole Steg K 4.01 - 4 channel amp to drive the fronts. i.e. 2-way active. X-Oed at a blistering 2.5kHz, 12dB/ octave.

Nishant, you're running the Electras, right? If so, dont worry about the rain drops.

Yes, its the Electra 6.1. Are you serious? Are they really water proof/resistant? To what extent?

Me and Zohir had a discussion about placement of the tweeters and left it for another day as we could not reach a conclusion. I was worried that tweeters in ORVM pod might get water affected and A-pillar location was not looking very convincing.

Maybe you could give your inputs on the same, post an audition and your famed tuning

He wanted to do it this time itself. I advised him against it since he is anyway very happy with the current bass.

Thanks for the compliment. I am happy that you also felt it SWEET. Please do not blame me for your itchy feeling you should blame it on STEG and illusion Carbons for making such a SWEET feeling

That does not prove your innocence. You are still at guilt, you were influential in making that feeling possible
