Hmm...sorry, amp was shipped free.

Wirings were something like 29$ for shipping.

But note, shipped within the US as my brother got the delivery there. Now he is travelling with the stuff to India, so Customs + VAT duty is still to be paid when the stuff lands.

LBM, if i am right then you using a Steg k2.04 amp. Its also rated at 2400 x 1 @ 2 ohms and had the same power like the zx2500.1.

Now, my question is, what all electrical upgrades have u made your swift? I assume that for running the zx2500.1 in my car i need to do similar electrical as in your car.

So please shed some light.

You dont pay VAT when it is carried in by a passenger. 40% flat rate customs duty at a value that the customs officer in charge deems right.

P.S. I must say your amp looks a million bucks.

Yes correct.

Actually I have not upgraded not a single thing in the electrical part. The stock battery is used. The main thing I observe is that voltage does not go below some certain point. And not to play the setup loud for more than few mins...

Spoke to FM Drive, Mr Pankaj in Santacruz. Must admit, sounds like a very decent and a well spoken guy.

Asked him the following things:

1) Damping: He says 15K which covers 4 doors + roof + floor of the car. 15k is including the labour charges. How does it sound? Good?
2) Again 15K for some new performance battery. Though he forgot the brand name, but will let me know later.
3) As i told, i also plan to change to rear co-axials to components. For a budget of 10k he suggested some model from Morel audio.
4) Caps: Not intrested in the cap.
5) BIG 3: Forgot to ask him about that.

Guys, wanna make this a perfect setup. No loops at all
