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?
I think that's the major surprise of my new install.
Something probably unheard of by many, even me as of now.

As for the components my budget has gone mad. So has my wallet.
So i would save up for components and buy something later on.

Thanks for the suggestion bro, will keep the 2ohm thing in mind too while choosing.

Thanks frank. If not delhi, then I will drive down to mumbai and kochi and banglore after i come back from uk.
Hope it turns out that way. I'm sure you'll love the way it is installed. I've planned something really very different. :-)

@ LBM paaji doing what he does the best setting up the system. 22ji just wanted an opinion on the Compo install. Which compo's do you think would sound better in my ride. I currently have a very basic setup but have added JBL Basetube to the trunk. Sorry for asking this on Abhinav's thread but would appreciate any help on the same. Do you think it would be wise to get the 21'50 pioneer speakers from the Rear.

@ Abhinav - I would like to audition the system on your car. I got the oppotunity to audition LBM's ride and it was just out of this world

Regards,
CB

Man you are really excited about your ICE equipment. Nice amplifier - install it well.
Even I'm waiting to see the rest of the stuff now- especially the sub.

While you are correct about the distribution channel, I'm not sure if they are as easily available as JBL amplifiers.
