Congrats on the setup greenhorn,
Very nice and informative thread.

BTW, do you have any pics of how the MDF plank (for fitting the amp) was fitted to the back of the rear seat.

Thumbs up

Congrats greenhorn! Setup is looking good. The only drawback I see with the rear speaker mounting is that it must cause the hatch lid to get very heavy and this must be a strain on the dampers. Other than that, very effective to save space. Enjoy the music! cheers:

Congrats Greenhorn. Happy listening
How does the speakers on the hatch lid sound? A friend of mine was going to install the speakers at the same location and I advised him not to do that thinking that it will spoil the sound quality. I asked him to purchase the wooden boxes for the 6X9's which could be better as he is not installing the sub.

From where did you buy the horn greenhorn? Me too planning for a better horn. Is this the one that sounds like the skoda's horn? Please pm me the place where I can get the horn and the progrip.

the hatch lid doesnt seem much heavier, but i need to be careful when i close it ( cant do it with the bang i used to earlier )

I tried listening to it from the rear. not too bad, but doesnt have the same directness when the speakers were in the rear parcel tray, but none of my passengers have complained yet . what car is your friend getting ?

dragster, PM me a location where we can meet after you get your car ( will they be bringing the car here , or do you have to pick it up ? ) in the latter case , we can have an audition later. the horn and progrip , and the rest of the stuff were sourced from emperor

It was one of my friend in chennai who bought an Alto, when he went for ICE the installer told him that it is best to install the speaker on the hatch lid. I suggested him a total JBL setup for his budget along with pio HU and keep the ovals in seperate boxes and he is quite happy with it.

Had a brief audition of the istall yesterday and WOW, I never expected this much SQ from an indica!! The 'cheap' damping done is really effective and the indica doors fell very strong after the damping. I expected a lot of vibrations on greens indica, but there was none. The tuning is really good and the sub is playing in sync with the compos and rear fills.
But I feel the tweeters could be better, but this depends on personal taste though. The ovals on the boot lid is really innovative and does sound good. The sub is a steal for the price he paid. Forgot to audition the redhorn

@ dragsterr, I like them laid back - when you heard them, I was running the treble at -2 (HU settings go till +/- 7 , And hertz are laid back speakers to begin with )

Either way, will you be available this weekend ? jk was planning a meet

@ phamilyman, I'll make it simpler - the boot is not very useful right now , half is filled by the sub, and the rest of it has the amp and a wire going through diagonally ( it turned out to be too short) , but it sounded okay at lower volumes with a bag stuffed to the side on our way back from ekm

I didnt think the ovals on the hatch door THAT innovative. A friend had a Wagon R iced by the maruti dealers locally, and they did the same thing
