Congrats, Manan! Great upgrade! I'd listened to the SLX series here and I loved the way they sounded. Great value for money (they sound like they cost at least 30% more).

BTW what happened to the ESK 165 ? up for sale ?



As far as my ears know i think JVC Kw-AVX814 is very good HU. Why would one want to change that hehe and Hertz ES380 is one of the best sub i have heard till date.
Thanks Aman, You will not be satisfied untill i get the IDMAX, Genesis Amps and Clarion HU's Right??

Hertz Compos Sold, I have the Co-ax if you want!!

Thanks, I totally agree with you, They sound equal to the Hertz Hi-Energy series which was for around 14k

Exclamation nice. what damping have you used ?

Nice;
Can you put up some x-over & tweeter close up snaps.
Lots of damping done - lovely.
What do you use for that ?
Have you 'replaced' your amplifier ? The Kenwood i.e.

All the Best !

Well done...

The same stuff you use in your cars Sir, except in Delhi there is no name for it. It is sourced from a manufacturer / importer based in New Delhi. I have seen people pay Rs 120 per sq ft (incl installation usually) for this.

Disclaimer: BBW Distributors does NOT represent any damping materials brand/product. Please don't ask me for this product, it is available with most good ICE retailers in Delhi.

That is great;

Even ND has 'Noise Kill' !!!

We pay Rs. 150/- per sq. ft. for it in Mumbai.
ND is cheaper. Wow !!

I sure hope all installs use this material - it is really good.
I am happy with its performance.

What is the price of the other 'famous' damping material ? The name is eluding me.

Nah, haven't used any in a while Sir. Though it's the better material for sure, Dynamat isn't readily available here (dist by PTC I think) so I don't have much idea of the current prices.

Hi Bhagwan, I'd got an indicative quote from PTC regarding Dynamat Extreme recently...

The door kit (4 sheets of 12" by 36" damping material) costs Rs. 6000, i.e. Rs.500 per sq. ft.

The trunk kit (5 sheets of 18" by 32" damping material) costs Rs. 9200, i.e. Rs. 460 per sq. ft.

The rest of Dynamat's product line can be found here...

...
Good Lord - Help us mortals..........
Mad prices - Rs. 500/- per sq. ft.

I used 168 sq. ft. in my swift. If I were to have used 'Dynamat Extreme - it would have set me back - Rs. 77/- K to 84/- K
Too much. No wonder not too many persons like to use it here in India.
The price is PROHIBITIVE !!

I was under the impression that the HU would be Ural or Helix.

URAL ConceRt CDD Project | Фотогалерея

The Amplifier choice is good - Thesis is a great amplifier. I would stick to it;;;;

The Speakers would have been Focal Utopia or Venture Audio.

Just some suggestions...

cheers:
