I think the Amey Swift audition + the good Doc's write up is doing more than give upgrade thoughts to Nishant, its a cascade effect.

Lol.

New year, new ICE for me.

Arey mmmmmjjjjgggmmmmm

kya sirjee... If he thought of an upgrade after amey swift audition . he should be forewarned that to take the plunge again you need deep .. i repeat .really deep pockets. Remember Amey switched from the 75.4 to the steg . Yes his swift sounds brilliant but then there is not end to how sweeter you can made the ICE to sound.

NishantGandhi is gonna be totatlly ICEd again. Keep spreading the ICE bug

Yeh hai budget ! naya saal naya budget !. This year it's been a ghaan year, too much unnecessary spending. (hint :Terrorist attack damage repairs)

I am already in the deep end. Think deep ocean budget. May be an eclipse ?.......

It will happen step by step not an impulse purchase/upgrade. It again will happen the ulta way, new car + new ICE.

keep reading for further updates, we shall be with you next year same time

Haven't heard Amey's swift and now no plans also (might make me think towards Steg ). My setup is just 6 months old and I am already thinking of an upgrade? Not fair to my wallet

You know, Frank? Prior to your mid life makeover (your car's. whatever), and you putting up this ICE thread, there were a lot of fellow Team Bhpians who were thinking about putting an end to my Hermitgiri, by offering their sister's or daughter's hand in marriage to me. And now..look what you've done.

I've heard Amey's swift, class apart on the SQ. I meant it as Amey's steg plus (completely additional) to the good Doc's upgrade, is speeding up my upgrade decisions, over and above what's it done to you (nishant)

B&T, awesome work ! classed it out.

Cheers

the air supply themselves will come and be surprised! naa re, i listen to compressed mp3s a lot of time, and i know original audio cds will make a big difference. plan to buy cds now(after a long time)

Turning the knob full circle will wake up the sleepiest of creatures by shaking the car violently.

OT - After the session, my drive back home was filled with 'upgradation' related thoughts. Now only if I could lay my hands on a 75.4
oye nishant! what an awesome mini review. im happy you came yesterday! i like auditioning my system now!

my sub and my bass knob both are set to zilch, so the only vibrations in my esteem are when im with my 'friends'

the sub is powered by the rockford fosgate amp. the rear fills are playing second fiddle to the electras and hence using 2 EXPENSIVE channels of the 75.4 may sound like overkill, but i do need to keep the balance huh?

yea, the 75.4 gang is HUGE, but next time i shall aim for something less BRIGHT. hell, there's a lot of power to be harnessed from the 75.4 but its a lil bright. ajay had to tone my tweeter settings to -6 by request to tone down the chan chan..

75.4 is great amp for the sub thanx to all that power.But for people who want lesser tweeter level's it really doesnt help.

Any further upgrades? now the bug will become bigger and bigger

dude, any more upgrades and i shall be upgraded to a zhopadpatti. my dad will disown me and sell vada pav from the money he will get when he sells my ICE to each of you salivating goons on Team Bhp! have you heard that popular dialogue from that hindi movie, bachhe ki jaan loge kya? its the same state now. dad and mom havent sat in the car yet, but when they see green and blue colours in the dashboard instead of just blue(in our language, an alpine HU instead of a pioneer HU) i shall be slaughtered and im sure their SPL levels will be higher than even LBM's ice! (thats a LEGENDARY statement!)
hee haw!
