Ok So i have fitted my 4 channel amp temporarily in the same location the JBL 1004 was at.
XO'd at 80Hz 12db/oct. All settings to flat.

Tuned the gains myself.
It sounds simply amazing. The highs are more neutral now ( they were a bit bright earlier according to my taste - i feel now)

The mid bass though a bit less, is much more clear and crisp.
The vocals are better than before.

I am so loving the new amp and the improved sound quality.

Waiting for the gift to come so that i can start my install again. I have many things lying in my room which is making me sad that i cannot start the install without the sub and more stuff to come :(

Oh that was deliberate. There is time to reveal that.
I'll reveal the 4 channel earlier than the rest of the stuff though

Upgrade the fronts.
Lol.
I don't have cash for that right now KK.
But surely that will also be on the cards. Pretty much got my eyes on the Carbons though they are out of my budget right now.

Oh, i thought you were thinking to upgrade your fronts from illusion to either pioneer or DLS Nobelium or Iridium.

Which make is that sub never heard the name of the same and any link for it will love to see.

I do not have illusions in the front sir.
Those stuff are out of my budget.
Pioneer is too bright to my liking.

Will show you the link once i get confirmed with what it is.
It's between one of 2 for sure.
And i am sure it will be quite different too.

Bingo.

Its Harman Kardon CA470.

Will let the pics do the talking.
The install pics won't come as it is right now in the same location as the JBL 1004 was but will soon be repositioned.


Thanks Sathee for the review.
Thanks Frank / Zucchero for giving me confidence that my purchase is good.
Thanks Sam for getting the amazing HK Car Audio Amps in India.
Thanks to LBM , Zucchero and others who encouraged me to try the tuning myself
Thanks Sathee as it was your review and self tuning that encouraged me to do the same too. ( In fact i am not at all disappointed)


P.S. Sorry for the pics, bad cam.
I promise that the install pics would be taken from an excellent cam.

Wow man, It looks great as always. I'm pleased that my review made you buy it, and also happy that you are loving it. I'm all blushes. When is the CA1500 coming? what woofers are you planning?

I suggest you get components with 2 ohm impendence like the Kappa, you can make up for the loss in power. Are carbons 2 ohm?
