Post My 800 JBLified...

I took my own sweet time for posting this, so at least let me do this properly.

Preface: My heart felt thanks to Nitrous a.k.a Mahendra, he stuck by me from 10.30 in the morning to 8.30 in the evening , a whole of 10 hours in hot humid conditions. He spent the whole time explaining various finer concepts of ICE. If what he claims is true, that he is not really 'that' knowledgeable about ICE ; I shudder to think my original grasping of the subject.

Nextly (intentional mis-spelling) I would like to thank T-BHP and all the gurus and members without whose posts I would have probably ended with "explod".

Lastly to the Yeti, just for the reason that he works for JBL and for all his inputs about the GT5 series and also because I like him and his yeti blogs.

P.S : Also because me and Nitrous were able to kill many a hour discussing the yeti and his antics(is that the right word? ).

ok ok ok, I'm getting to it.

I had been contemplating a lot of thing for my car for a long time now including selling it and getting a new one. After a lot of contemplation and what not, I came across the 'GT5 thread'. On an impulse I PM'ed Nitrous whether he knows any good installer. He replied back asking if I knew what I wanted.

"Ya" I said.
"When?" he asked.
"This Weekend?".
"Ok".
After a restless night at the office, I messaged him, and promptly fell asleep at 6 am.

" Can we move it up?"
"You want to do it now?" was the reply at 8 am.

Got up at 9.15 to ...you know.. saw the message, I discovered by the time I could hit reply button on my mobile, I was completely awake.

What the heck?... I called him and we agreed to meet up at 10.30, got to the shop by 11.30. He hadn't even opened yet. Finally at 12 he opens up. The next one hour is spent buying the stuff and drooling over it.

The 'ICE' as it is listed below:

Pio DEH - P4050UB
JBL 607C components
JBL GT5 - A604 amp
JBL GT5 - 12 Sub.

Fitting the components was the hardest part, I apologize for the quality of the pictures. In my opinion, the installer did a very good job with the installation though he made us wait for a long time with one botched up job while fitting the components.

Verdict: Absolutely blown away. The bass is tighter than tight (you know what I mean hehehe). The sound is very clear and not bright at all. and I dont play it more than 25% volume and the sound is perfect. A good mix of bass and vocals. I'm a JBL fan now and thanks to Nitrous it was a steal
I drive around aimlessely at 2 am now .

Here are the pictures now;

I dont know if this makes a difference but your 12" woofer seems to be obstructing the output of one of your 6x9 speakers. You could try moving the woofer to between the 2 6x9s.

Hi Fiery,
Congrats. But I have some doubts. I see '4 ohms' written on that 607C comps pack. But I believe they are 2 ohms (I have them in my car and JBL site / manual also says it). why it is so?

Great setup man. Where did you get it done?

What about the sub box? Readymade or custom made?

No sir, it does not say 4 ohms on your pack You will see a little sign with a Head unit, 4 ohms and a tick mark. This is the universally accepted mark for OK to use with a 4 ohms head unit.

dont you think 6" comps in the front door of a M800 is kind of an overkill ?
BTW, how do they sound ? You are yet to say that.

Sam Bhai, sorry for going off topic and while I am telling you his, I must admit that I have not seen any JBL product carton (packaging) in real life, but I feel that the cartons look too cheap and not worthy of JBL. Can't the packaging be made a little more upmarket (asthetically)? Even the original JBL packaging makes it look like Dilli Wallah D-Maal!

Hehe, that depends purely on one's taste for how to hear music. I would say 6.5 is suitable for 800 and bigger cars need bigger and powerful ones. If I had enough vitamin-m, I would have gone for a bigger comps with three way (woofer, midrange, tweeter) atleast 100W RMS driven by a powerful amp for my swift for front alone. That doesn't equate loud music. A good and powerful system plays well and gives crystal clear/sharp output in low volume levels too.

Sumit, a lot of time and effort on JBL packaging worldwide, it is compliant with every kind of stacking standard there is and design wise they have always stood out on shelves. Packaging is a very very important part of marketing and you must admit, the guys at JBL do know their marketing well. In fact we have consistently received compliments for the packaging worldwide - it is designed at the design centre in Woodbury, New York.

I am not surprised at all at the fact that you have never actually seen a JBL product carton in real life. That probably makes it easier for me to understand your comment.

You may not like the design of the packaging and I must respect that. But I feel that the rest of your comment is a bit unwarranted. Still, it is a free country...

Sam Bhai you are probably correct.

@Fiery: Sorry buddy, I thought I had complimented you before I went Off Topic. Your 800 surely rocks now. Its all about passion and your passion for music and your love for your vehicle is very evident.
