yep! the MK2 just got taken out and has been promoted to the rear seat from the boot. :-) it now lies disconnected, and has ALREADY been sold to someone.
a new sub is in the offing. but nothing extravagant. had this at the back of my mind since the luccents were ordered. so quite ironical, that the team-bhp janta ki adaalat passed a 'motion' for that.
well this Magnat subwoofer is quite a powerful one, its an old school heavy old mother. its in PERFECT condition and im using it as a temporary sub till i finally make my decision on what i want. its also on sale. whoever wants it can pm me..


OH and there's one MAJOR update. I just got my door pads removed and they are lying at Hermit Audio. I'm getting the door pads FIBRE GLASSED and the actual doors totally damped. after all the Lucies should get a good welcome, shouldn't they??????

Ho!Ho!Ho! Frank Bhai, what about an email to your papa now ?
Maybe we would include the 12 cell phones to the list, then the ebay items etc. We would be more than happy to create the spreadsheet on your behalf.

T-Bhp has done it again.
it was on the cards, but this is not going to be a super power SPL monster. Its going to be more musical, more subtle and classier than the already classy GZ MK2. thats about the only hint i can give as of now :-P
BUT it will come as a surprise to everyone. Official Announcement in a few days.

i had gone to a doc. His name is Ajay Kamath, and everytime i go there he makes me sit in some kind of machine (most probably an Expensive car with a lot of ICE in it) and I come back with a washed brain..

SCF: let me tell you guys what the SCF is!

tejas and i were handling the IPL on behalf of Dy Patil Stadium last year. And we had this person who would handle all our expenses while ..ahem.. preparing for IPL. His name was Salvi. Everytime we wanted to go out for an EXPENSIVE dinner (wine, exotic cuisine, the works) we would release some SCF (Salvi Chit Fund) and have a laugh over it!

frank, if you tell us what sub you running, we could suggest a good sq amp also. having a bass control knob in an SQ setup is just not done. I think a K-competition amp is good for you (2 channel ) what say you ?

no idea whatsoever. pm b&t for details. fibreglass rear tray has to be custom made and there's quite a bit of labour involved in it. will cost you more, but will ensure you have a firm and non-rattly tray. good one time investment.

sure arpan, why not?
in fact a genesis amp for the sub and another for the other speakers is already on its way.
also, i am thinking of gold plating my car.
and running it on 'mere mortal' wheels is passe. platinum 17" are being flown in from west coast customs.
any more suggestions? its a free for all.

update: dreamt of dynaudio esotar series and Scarlett Johanssen while dreaming about all this too

Ok i'm back on planet earth now. Just one question.
I just wanna take a call on whether i should amplify my rears or leave all 4 channels for the Luccents? Like 2 channels for the mids and 2 for the tweets?
And i'm seriously reading about crossovers and all but i dunno if i should go active with my alpine 9887 or go passive with the cx2 luccent crossover.
B&t any suggestions? Sound byte?all gurus plz do leave your 2 paise
