Awesome install doc-saab! Happy to note that you got rid of the entire lot of Kenwood 8401 "SQ" amp..

Best part is that its tuned by Ajay himself.. Mumbai guys are lucky to have good and honest people around!

Congrats, frankmehta! Nice install! And that was a very enjoyable read.

SO is the ICE really complete now? Hmmm? Hmmmm?

OT: Is that BHAGWAN's White Swift there in the pic above the RF Amp's certificate (the pic showing a "No Smoking Zone")?

Nice setup there. you have picked one of the most natural sounding components in your setup. way to go.

The GZ sub on Rockford Fosgate amp needs a audition.

So so true this Man has affinity for a certain drink of russian origin and finest nuances of SQ.cheers:

He tuned my system so well that some one who know zilch about SQ (read my parents) could feel the difference and could make out that the ICE was sounding way way better.
Long live the Tuner .. ICE tuner :P

P.S. care to share the damage the bug in your pants did ( to your wallet i mean)
im going to post an item wise breakup but not right now. just adding up the bills right now.. hehe

thanx hydrashok. its quite an honour coming from someone like you, what with the really high end equipment. anyways, i feel the quest for THE sound is almost over, but its ice and its teambhp, so theres never a limit or an end.. lol
