The wiring kit was a Bull Audio 7ga kit. Unfortunately I don't have pictures, I can take pictures of the boot though and post them.

Have experienced a bit of distortion in the Hertz 5.25" co-axials mounted in the rear, especially at high volume, if the front fader is not used. Thinking of swapping them for Bull Audio 5.25" components. Gurus, do you think that will solve the problem and provide better sound quality? The price difference is only 1.5k so that's not a big concern. Also please note that the rear speakers are in the stock location and are being powered by the stock Alpine 9830 HU.

You are being unfair to the Hertz drivers. The distortion is from the HU (internal amp unable to sustain clean output at high volume setting or loud passages). If you really want to hear at LOUD volume in the rear, amp the rear speakers.

That's what I thought as well but to test it out I'm going to swap the Hertz co-axials with the Bull comps and check out for myself if there is a difference, we'll get to know the answer soon

The Bull 7ga wiring kit is available for Rs. 2500/- and the 4ga for 5000/-
For my present set-up the 7ga was sufficient.

So I swapped the Hertz coaxials in the rear with the Bull Audio 5.25" components and there is a difference in the sound, even though the rear comps are still running off the HU. The distortion from the rear speakers kicks in at a higher volume level as compared to the Hertz and that solves my purpose for the time being. Of course once the fader is adjusted to get a proper sound-stage upfront, there is no distortion at all! Pretty happy with the swap and the price difference is only Rs. 1500/-
