Yes, IDs are pretty good SQL subs and they require a relatively small enclosure volume. usually a .75 - 1.0 cuft sealed enclosure is known to produce fantastic SQ.

Yep, that's a 0.75 cu.ft. box. The IDQ12 is quite happy with that. As per specs, a sealed encl. can be between 0.55 cu.ft & 1.0 cu.ft., with 0.85 cu.ft. being the "normal" volume. I'd run the sub with a box that was just under 1.2 cu.ft. first, and then switched to this 0.75 cu.ft. box. With the current mono, this box suits my taste best.

Yep, the front doors were damped *very* well. The insides of the outer door panel, and the inner "frame" just behind the plastic door-pads was damped completely. They were damped with the generic version of the same silver stuff you used.

AZ Audiocomp foam was used between the plastic door-pads and the damped shell of the door. I don't think any damping material was pasted onto the back of the plastic door-pads, though.

Most of the damping budget was spent on the front doors. I damped the rear doors also, though I'm not planning on installing speakers there. The damping was done in the late evening when I wasn't at the installers, so no pics, sorry.

I'm very happy with the damping job! The doors shut like the Palio's doors did. In fact, they lean shut nearly all the way by themselves, if left open. There are no rattles or vibrations when the music plays, even with mid-bass-heavy tracks at pretty high volumes. Tracks with a lot of double-bass used to be a headache in the Palio. No such issues here.

Thanks, Gill! Actually, the sub section is something I'm a bit concerned about too!

Though the amp is rated at 65w RMS x 4 (or 65w RMS x 2 plus 200w RMS x 1) and 200w RMS x 2 in Dual-mono mode (both at 4 ohm), the amp has in output devices in excess of 1000w onboard.

I hope to have it installed in another 10-12 days. I will put in a before-after review once the install is done.

Was expecting this.. and here it comes. Congrats hydra. Now I think even a trip to Cochin just for audition is worth. Expecting detailed pics and reviews as always.

The tru tech amp looks hot !
Can your audison 4 channel be bridged into a mono ? If yes won't it deliver more power than the mono audison ?
