Congrats, TC.
Have you swapped the Illusion EL 4.1 for the EL 6.1?

Thanks Cyclops. Lets meet on any of the weekdays.

Well I have seen a few Alto Door installs & I didnt like the finish, so went to Ajay as lots of Tbhpians have their setup done there & are extremely satisfied

As for pricing -

EL 6.1 - roughly 7k

Installation Cost - 1k (Includes Cutting of doors, two MDF rings on each door with fabric, Damping the doors, HU change)

Damping - 2k (around 4.5 meters of Noise Kill)

Amp fixing - Rs 350(this was done at a separate shop )

No new wiring was put as we re-used my existing CRA & cables(Illusion 16 gauge )

Thanks Nitrous, I just bought the 6.5 inch mid bass drivers separately. The 4 inch driver is still there at stock location albeit disconnected as it may come in handy if I wish to go 3-way in future

Not sure, Ajay would be able to answer that but in my case they are the same.

i should think so. i feel even the tweeter is the same. they must be mass produced this way. tweets and xovers common, and the midbasses would be the ones to differ. that also explains the small variation in prices between the 3.

No such thing, yaar. Not even close to it. Just been doing it for a while now. You get used to it.

Hey congrats Techno on your audio upgrade. Man how bout a small review of the HU?
I mean is the slider easy to use? Any chance of dust entering the screen? And what about the directory listing of songs in USB mode? User friendly?

Too many questions.

Thanks L2D

- Yes the Slider is easy to use, infact even other controls are easier to use than from remote unlike the Pioneer which was more easy to operate from remote.

- Doesnt look like if dust would enter but it too early to comment

- I recently discovered that you view the list similar to how some of the Pioneers show so yes it should be as easy or difficult Most if not all of the options are same for CD & USB. As for being user friendly I believe its all about getting used to it :-)

_ The auto scan for radio is really cool as atleast my outgoing HU didnt scan & set stations automatically.
