Hi Navin,

The Focal that I am planning to install is indeed the FOCAL JM LAB speakers.
Did hear them and sounds great.

I would second this suggestion.

Buy 'better' front components;
Go up on the Amplifier 'series'
&
Buy a Sub with a good Mono Amp

This will be a great set up.

I hope you all get the message...
The accord stock stero is ok till volume 10, when you 'push' it to say volume 17- 18,its like they sound flat.I just want a bit more thump with the new setup and I am not looking for earth shattering bass.Just clear sound the correct blend of midrange, treble and bass.

Does your H.A. [Honda Accord] have RCA pre outs from the H.U. ?
How do you plan to attach a Power Amplifier to it ?

Audison LRx has built in high level inputs, you don't need a Line Output Converter like the DQL8. The only reason you will need the DQL is if the installer wants to EQ the system.

Got the Lrx 4.5 today and i am waiting for the focals now.This should be arriving in 5 days hopefully.
What do you all suggest about a powered subwoofer, Or is one powered via a mono block better?

I would go in for a good woofer powered via a mono block in a sealed box any day. Especially considering that the rest of your equipment is pretty good.

Bhaiya Ji in ICE land. Good to see you here.

As Ishan suggested get a good sub rather than a powered one.

haha I see the tyrewalla lost his way. still it is good advice.

Ishanji, have you ever done a study on which tyre produces the least road noise? Intuition tells me nylon belted radials would be less noisy than steel belted radials.

You really want me to answer that here??

Anyway, the construction does play a part in the tyre noise but I think what plays a more significant part is the tread design since the majority of the noise produced is by the impact of the tread meeting the road surface. And I think with the introduction of Silica, the latest gen steel belted radials have the edge over nylon tyres. Not to mention better resistance to punctures.

Sure road noise changes the way a system is tuned and might also affect the degree/type of damping required.

We at TBHP intend to cover every aspect of car audio.

A few days ago a audio enthusiast (who shall remain un-named) mentioned (within my ear shot and not knowing that I was a TBHP member) that "TBHP is the bleeding edge of Indian car audio". Gunbir, Sam, B&T, LBM, Raven and all of you take a bow!
