Going by the CNG cylinder in the boot, I would say Petrol! Unless he uses that to store extra diesel

Congrats!
Great effort on enclosure,though could have increased the width a bit!
The sub seems to be a real beast,such a huge variation in power handling after break-in period!
Reviews on the product,shall be appreciated as it's the first Hifonic install i have seen!

now, what you will have to change is that sony amp. BTW whats the model no of the sony?
see, if you are fine with it, then keep it, but you will hear a difference for sure when you upgrade to a better amp. baaki, if you happy, we happy. :-)

it is a good decision to go for the 0g wiring. You have a crdi? or petrol.

can you switch off the lights(sub, comps)

i once tried to get the MDF cut from professional aari wala(table saw?) he cut it wrong. it took me 2 days to correct everything and i ended up with a small enclosure. lol now i DIY.
Hey Rishabh,

well, its a sony 554.. nearly 2 yrs old..i will be changing it but not now, there are some pretty good amps by EFX.. or else there is blaupunkt..

my ride is a petrol, converted to CNG. though it runs on petrol most of the time..unless i go to delhi..

the comps are wired directly to the remote turn on of the HU.
the sub is wired to the remote turn on too, but i have put a switch in between.

for the MDf cutting, i made the aari wala keep 2 soot extra, and then used a randa for finishing.. it was a tough job, but it feels so goood....

Congratulations, @ss, well done!

That sounds like a lot of elbow grease went in. The job I have always hated in carpentry is planing, and I am still waiting to buy an electric planer.

(For folks not used to Hindi measurements and terms: 1 soot = 1/8"; randa = planer; aari = saw; aari-wala = guy who operates the electric saw)

You said earlier that you have used nails ! Sacre bleu, sacrilege!!! Unlike screws, nails are likely loose grip in MDF over time.

Thank you sir, and thanks for the english terminology. i have used very few screws, mostly on the corners and for the port. but the nails are pretty thick and big ones, will post a sample

SS the nails will get lose. Delarte is correct. I would recommend to put screw when you get time as it will make the enclosure rock solid. Drill a hole first and then the counter then the job will be easily be done.

SS-> Stainless Steel

No need to get them use normal wooden screws which have a flat head and half taper thread.
