LOL. What's the point in doing it again?

I was only telling not saying to do that again.


Anyways, reading your above line, I really must play the same track on idmax also when I audition it, just for kicks. Hehe…..

Sure then you will know what I was talking about

I hope these guys open shop in Punjab too. I'd love a Hertz Sub for sure....

That is a good thing. But I personally never like Hertz sub.


Very good then. After hearing horn speakers in a car (and associated headaches) I'd really prefer a laid back system. You have lucents na ? Heard they are out of production.

I never felt that horn are so forward. It is when they are played loud they can be a problem rest they sound very good. You are the only person who said that horns are bright. Ya Luccent are discontinued.



Power cable is Finolex/Havell/L&T for sure. For RCA or speaker wire, need some good reputed stuff.

I agree



Met a dude(asst. architect) there. Delhi/Gurgaon number zen. He showed me his system. It had an exad series JVC HU with time alignment. And tell ya what guys, I was TOTALLY blown away buy the sheer midbass. Mazzaa aa gaya.
You audio guys keep spoiling my budget LOL. Now dreaming of somehow shoehorning in a Time Alignment wala HU….

Very true. With a TA hu the tunning can be done to achieve very good results. But be careful but bad tunning will sound worse.

Also what all other stuff he had in his car ?

Ahhh.. Good times are here.
Exams are over and money is expected to flow in next week.

Plan to spend 10-15k for a really good front soundstage. I think this will be the heart of the whole system.
Need some good amplifier to power this up. Will decide on what amp after choosing the speakers.

Later in the day, will plonk in a 12” or 15” in the boot or maybe even a couple of 12” ones. Probably will choose ID because of all that unmatched reputation of all international forums that I have been visiting lately. Thanks Speedzak for the suggestion!

Now cant understand what RCA, speaker cables to use. Also cant understand what Speakers to use ?

For how much can we get a cheap TA enabled HU? I mean which is the cheapest one? JVC’s?

No offense to anyone. But don't buy anything without listing. Do get a audition of the same. Of any brand you go for.

As reputation is one thing and the sounding is another.

Abhi yaar. Told ya already. Just get a Kenwood HU and be happy with it.
That's the only Non Pioneer HU you'll get there anyways, leaving apart JVC.
If TA is a priority, check for EXAD series then.

Dad had some official work in Delhi so I went with him was getting bored there and called Rajat to ask where is Driven so that while he is in meeting I can check the various ICE stuff.

Went to Driven and to my good gracious luck got a chance to meet Gunbir and JB. Was given a chance to audition the bull but as I already had a 1 day demo of those lil monsters asked for Hertz, ID CTX demo….

Got a chance to demo Rainbow speakers. SLX and SAX were in my budget, so rather spent time with them only. My friend from UK says SLX is one of the best entry level compos he has heard and considering his and my music / listening tastes are 99% alike he suggested them to me. Well he was absolutely right they just blew off my fav DLS and JBL POWER SERIES compos. Well I was about to put my money on it but to my mere bad luck I forgot my CC back at CHD and I never travel with cash in my pocket. Not more than mere 1000 bucks.

I liked the ID CTX too but was told that it will have some mounting depth problem in my car. So was offered a demo of almost same priced Rainbow SAX. And SAX just blew my mind. The Midbass was just so ummmm…. Sexy!!!!!! Right that moment I said enough is enough I want these COMPOS!

Demo of subwoofer still pending so not sure what to do 
