Great install Gunbir! Yet another drool-maal car for us!

A couple pf questions, sir:
1. How well does the Genesis 4-channel handle the iDQ15 D2 v2?
2. How good is the iDQ performing in free air?

A front only system is great if you drive yourself most of the time. And it takes a little getting used to. But once you settle in, you will never go back to a rear sound stage. Of course if you are driven around, you can go for a good speakers in the rear stock locations.

Oh and the Alpine X types are only there for the time being.

The Genesis amps are very underrated. The 4ch handles the iDQ15 with 300w of ease. You have to understand that in IB, a driver needs only about half its rated power to reach full potential. The iDQ15 is working beautifully in Infinite Baffle. It goes loooow and blends with the fronts so smoothly.

FBs had the X types for a while now. He was initially running them off his stock Blau HU. But he has his mind set on a couple of speakers for some time now and the upgrade is part of the initial upgrade only. Its just that its been deferred for a while as it will be another nice addition and he wanted to give his wallet a break.

^ I agree with you.But its not FB.Even when i got my install done,the second day i was thinking for getting new amps...but the wallet is always a problem.

I didnt know a ID 15" existed.I would have got that instead of my hertz 15" but now whats the use of crying over spilled milk.Gunbir sir,which sub do you think is better the ID or Hertz.I know i am asking you to compare two of your own products but just wanna know.Also whats the cost of the ID sub??

An extremely neat and professionally done up setup as usual! Great job!

I had a question regd the way the sub was fitted.
Does the rear end of the sub that is sticking out face any risk of getting damaged by luggage or say while taking out the spare tyre?

Also, what is the bass like in such a setup, compared to the same sub in a sealed or ported box?

I have a fair idea of what's going to replace the X types

Another first-on-TBHP coming up?

Hush now . Anyway, initial listening impressions are as follows:

Very open, airy & smooth treble, clean and detailed sound, sub blends perfectly with the front stage without any need for TA, also thanks to JB & Gunbir's tweaks, image has been centered for the drivers seat and stage is high, wide and deep (also without need for TA!).

@vikram18:

Thanks!
Man, you had me wondering when you spoke of my "reputation" , I'm practically an "invisible observer" on T-BHP!

@Gunbir & JB:

Thanks once again for a fabuluous install, for taking the time and effort and also recommending the best solution. Gunbir, a special thank you for putting up this thread and (going OT) your culinary recommendations...

Well, we give all our installs special attention. But once in a while, we get to do it for someone who loves music more than his system. And those are the ones we really go all out on.

This was such an instance. We're ecstatic that you like your audio now and your car is among our favourite setups. As for culinary recommendations, I honestly believe that people who know good music also know good food. Its no wonder then, some of life's most gratifying experiences are either about food and / or music. Oh and theres one more thing, but lets leave that off the forum.
