I was thinking the same. But since he is happy why bother him.

i was charged like 600 bucks as this has a white conventional light and a blue one too in the same set!

i chose this because we always found it difficult to read the news paper at rear while choosing the theater and the cinema, most of the times its last minute decisions and is done in the car!

looks cool and does the job way above what i expected!

Great setup rider60! Very neatly done.
Just 1 question - how come you have the crossovers mounted on the door like that? Hopefully the legs of the driver/co-driver don't foul with them!

Sorry for being so OT, but does VDi have it? I mean the Tacho?

I was not referring to the wires, I was wondering if the passenger's finger would get stuck while rolling the windows. I generally hurt my index finger in my 800 because of the little gap that is available.

The 301.1 Mono does not have the crossover settings on the plexiglass shield which the 75.4 does.

well there have been changes in the swift's ICE.

its a bit sad that i had to remove the JBL GTO 75.4 and the MONO JBL GTO 301.1 from the car, replace them with something else, its not a upgrade though.

these amps dint feel right under the seats and i dint have the option of installing them behind the rear seat so they had to go, and i installed them in viva.

now the new thing is i got a JBL GTO 1004 amp for swift, the whole installation was a DIY at HOME! my FIRST ICE DIY. i put in the boot to the side, i had to put in a CUSTOM MDF board so that it fits right in, that was one hell of a DIY, and then bolted the amp to it. pardon me i couldnt document the installation though. now i had to buy a 4ohm stable sub since this amp was gonna power the sub too.

now i have it this way
the front components and the sub are powered through the amp, and the rear sound stage is powered from the HU.

the sub is JBL CS 1204, in a ported box.

well for wires i have used FINOLEX 6 SQmm wires coupled into 4 to make it 24-25 SQmm, for rca's i have used monster XLNs and the sound of music is awesome!cheers:.

the cost of finolex power wire is 960 bucks
the AMP JBL GTO 1004 is 10500 grey.
sub JBL CS 1204 cost me 3000 bucks.

i have also installed the power windows from AUTOCOPX costing 12000 with 1 year warranty, man they work like charm too!

I dont have too many pictures right now, i am posting one or two will put up more later.
