fantastic install. It rivals what you and JB (Autophile) do!

Are those screen pods available standard? It is absolutely the best way to mount a screen especially since the pods looks like they can be removed easily (by removing the headrest).

Can you find out more abou those screen pods Gunbir?

One one side of most cars is the petrol tank so the space on both sides is not equal. So one must take that into consideration when installing dual subs like the ones shown.

Brilliant install, very very neat job. Am wondering if I could install a sub similarly on a Corolla. Atleast my wife will stop complaining about lack of space in the boot.

From the pic I can see a slot loading bay below the screen. This could also be the reason to have the LCD screen mounted low to provide depth for the DVD slot.

Not very sure just a guess.
Do a close-up watch and you can see there's no depth for a CD to go in. They are Alpine TME series wide LCD screens fixed in a suitable housing to fix on back of the seat. The black line below the screen is not a slot, but a panel of controls (appears as a slot coz it is dark in color and cant see the individual buttons).

Those pods were custom built by the installer for this install. Shouldn't be too difficult to build them. I can find out more information if you let me know what information you need.

Can be done in the Corolla... while you're at it upgrade the power to your sub too.

There are more nice installs in Bangalore. Gunbir, I request you to share more of it here if you don't mind.

We would like to see a list of products used in each setup too. Will help many to understand ICE installs. People like me (who always nitpick on installs), will get a chance to try and find out the weak links in a setup that way too.

If they can done for the Octy it would be nice. Today I tilt the head rest and I stick a couple of rolled up towels under my son's behind so he can see the screen.

If this can be done for the Octy (removeable) I will then look for a new octy (RS) headrest.

I think it can be done for the Octy without much difficulty. The screen pods are something very nice in a big car. Kids will enjoy it more. No more looking up to see the screen!

Beautiful install. Thanks for sharing here, Gunbr.

I had a friend who had a similar install, ie.. Subwoofer on the floor. It was awefully painful to take care of the subs as it was very easily exposed to damage.

Gurus (Gunbir, Sam, Bass & Trouble, Blue Raven etc....) I am of the view that modern large woofers 12"+ should not be placed facing up/down. The cones of these woofers are rather heavy and I worry about cone sag (even considering the 2 spider suspensions some of these leviathans use) affecting the T/S specs and Xmax over long term use.

I'd like to know what you gys think.

Agreed, but in the mix of bad driver design, lower quality, lesser product life, poor installation and clipping, cone sag is probably the least of our worries.
