Gr8 Jay.
Thanks for the information.
It is nice to see some DIY successes before plunging into an actual DIY!
I was eying NoiseKill for a while, and am waiting to listen to some installs before buying some for me, and installing[sticking] them myself.

Yes Navin, that is the best and easy way. I thought will try with less number of pieces. So managed to put the biggest portion without cutting then filled the edges with pieces.

redfire , I'm not sure if the credit should go to the HU for the smooth sound. resolution , maybe , but smoothness is something which is a characteristic of textile tweeters ( and the reason why i hunted so hard for them- only blau and Hertz have textile tweeters at this price point)

Hey Green. Yes the speaker will add its part. But I don't think JBL is far behind and Sam has told that GTO607Cs are bright themselves. I really felt the main difference in HU. The way mid comes, the strength and clarity of the signals, tonality are clear sign of good HU. I feel the same difference when I play "You and your friend" (Dire Straits) in my Sony DVP-NS51 (the cheap DVD player) and my harmon/hardon HD7600 . When the CD is put in h/k, I hear all the notes, with good tonality and increased strength especially for mids while sony gives mainly highs and lows only.

did you have to remove the seat to install it?
i suppose you did if you used screws.
Also were these screws self the tapping kind or did u manage to shove nuts below the carpeting/fibreglass bottom?

@Magma - to put screw you have to remove seats. I used screws with sharp end which is self tapping to the carpet. Witht he help of double sided tapes and screws, amp sits fine.

Congratulation redfire for such stupendous DIY.
Is the amp resting on a mdf board? Is it not a bad idea to screw the mdf board to the car chassis and mount the amps on it? It will provide more safety against theft I think.

hmm thats not very easy to do.
i already tried it. You have to dismantle some parts including the firewall below your car to bolt on the MDF board to the chasis.

I don't know what car you have but in swift you can just mark the spot where you want to drill the screw and then look beneath for any obstructions. You will be able to gauge the spot with your hand. It hardly takes 5 minutes. But then you have to be careful so that you don't puncture anythink else! It did not cause any trouble in my car atleast
