If you don't have any other thing to do, then I would recommend you to stick around while it's being installed. Even if it hurts to see your babe being stripped, you may learn a lot in the process.
You'll appreciate the install more too.
My opinion!

I would second Zak on the point made. And while you are at it please don't hesitate to take some snaps of it being ripped up. All for the Noble cause of music.

The cables used are TSUNAMI premier series.In the process the guy just asked me if i need to change the amplifier to JL AUDIO.I am still sticking with the Audison.

Thumbs up Install done.

The installs done and it doesnt look like something has been done on the car for the normal man.The amps gone under the drivers seat though because there was lack of space behind the rear seat.
The way the power is handled even at volume 25 - 30 amazes me because there is no distortion.
The bass setting is on 6 (max) and the treble at C.Still the lack of punch is marginally felt as I am a BASS guy.I wioder if something can be done on the Amp to increase the bass boost or something like that.Sounds very crisp, clear and distortion free.

P.s. would a Rock ford Fosgate MONO block and sub go along with this set up??

You can add a Rockford fosgate sub + mono amp. It will give you enough bass which you find lacking in the setup.
I don't know what wiring has been used in this setup. If it's capable of handling one more amp, then your job will be easy. A simple distribution block will do. If the wiring isn't capable of 1 more amp, then you'll have to do a bit of extra wiring job when adding the 2nd amp.

Default As promised the snaps...

1.Audison under the driver seat
2.Focals inside the tweeter location behind the ORVM.
3.Focals 6.5 comps inside the door pad.
4.The focal speakers from inside the boot.


I need a SUB now, which make do you suggest??A mono block to power it is one option we spoke about.Alternatively if i redo the connection ie; if I power the the comps via the LRX 4.5 and the rear focals via the factory HU, can I bridge the balance 2 channels to power the SUB? What will be the end result?

The Focal Ovals work very well with what ever the power the stock HU is pumping but if you are thinking about a sub, why waste the time thinking get your selves a monoblock to go with the setup. And of course you can bridge the two channels if you don't want another amp, I think Hydra is running a similar setup with his "TRU" love.

Hydra's setup is very much different from this. No similarities or comparisons.

I would recommend to add a monoblock and sub.
As you're a bassy guy, it would give more satisfying results. If you just want big thump added to the current setup, just add an Alpine type R 12" sub and Alpine MRD M605 amp. The amp will fit neat below the passenger seat and the sub can be placed in the boot.

Shall we have some pics of the HU also? And a shot of the 6x9s from the front? Please!

@zak, The HU is the same factory unit as i mentioned before and the 6x9's cannot be seen from inside as its been fixed from the inside (read inside the boot).

So you all say its better to go for the monoblock rather than the bridging is it. Checked with the installer and he also said the same and suggested to for the JL sub, he also mentioned that he need to tune the components a bit more and will require the car for a whole day next week.

I thought Hydra was running a Bridged mode setup in this "TRU " & ID setup , and CK that's gonna be one hell of a Tuning.

Since You are at DXB why not have a look at other Brands like Kicker,MTX, and the monster GZ SPL Sub in abhinav's Lal Pari. Just Sujested this because it looked like a lot more value to me than JL Subs.

Also I heard a Free to air Setup in a Swift with a 8" DVC JL Sub, That was some BASS.

Also an after market HU will Make a World of difference to this setup, if it is currently running with Factory fitted integrated HUs
