Costs you 5K if caught, apart from the nuisance that your vehicle will be impounded. More if you happen to drive on the pavement or into a lamp-post or tree.

Overnight only, unless there has been "culpable homicide NAM"! Longer than that and they would have more problems than if the culprit was left on the road.

Where did you get them from? Have you compared them with others like Hertz High-energy, Illusion Lucent/Carbon, Infinity Kappa etc. which are in the same price / performance band? Your objective review would be much appreciated.

21K for Access is a bit pricey considering they retail for around $300. Nevertheless, a nice product and sounds good if paired with the right equipment.

Enjoy!

Default Best component speaker

Hi Bro,

I stay in a village in interios of Vasai (a distant suburb of mumbai) in my duplex house in a village away from the concrete near vasai railway satation. We have 3 virgin beaches close by & a couple of small hills where we chill out, (we r the law in vasai hehe)

Anyways bro, which are the best speakers which i can use with my exisitng sub & will it have any effect on the battery when the car is running (draining weak etc) & which will be a good HU budget no constraint

cheers nilesh

If you are upgrading from Pioneer then listen to Hertz, Illusion, JBL/Infinity, Blaupunkt (not GT series), etc..

2. The bass a good sub provides cannot be replicated by most coax (6" or 6x9") speakers.

3. You battery is not designed to be used this way. Buy a pair of Jumper cables to start your car with another car. BTW driving under the influence of alchohol is not advisable and is against the law (and a damn good law if you ask me).

The effect on the battery depends on (a) how loud you play / how many watts you use (b) how long you play and (c) the condition of the battery.

In any case we do NOT recommend using any ICE system that includes amplifiers when the car's engine is not running.

BTW what is the model of your existing sub. What would you consider to be a fair budget. There are people here youhave spent 5000 and others who have spent only 500,000.

Does running components without any amps cause damage to the HU in the long run ?

Just a refinement on the above query - Does running components without any amps when the engine is not running cause damage to the HU in the long run? Or any other damage (like Navinji mentioned, battery drainage?)

All current generation Class AB amps can handle 2 ohm loads.

No damage to HU. Battery health will depend upon how often/ how long you play the system without the engine running.
