Default My Alto's ICE - Sound Factored!!

Finally the time has come, after a long wait of 10 months (saving up) i am now in the process of ICE-ing my alto.
Setup was:
Pio 6850 + steering remote.
Sony Xplod 4" co-ax upfront (came with the car)
JBL 937
Twister 2 channel amp
JBL CS1204 BT
Some xyz wiring and abc RCA cables

Setup will now be :-
HU remains the same.
Rear speakers remain the same.
the sub is removed from the tube and put into a custom sealed enclosure.
Front compos - Focal Polyglass 165.
4 channel amp - JBL GTO 504.
the Twister amp will remain.
Good quality cabling will be installed.
Today was DAY 1 of the install. Hopefully should be done by sunday.
The install is being done at Sound Factor
Few Pics:
Old wiring comes out. You should have seen the mess!

Nice install, never seen the GZ subs being lit up this way!

dude you did the wrong thing putting up photos of the lancer. now ppl will talk about it more than your car. lol! hope that doesnt happen. anyways, the focal polyglass components look quite impressive... focals are known to have really good SQ, so maybe soon you will have to give me a free demo!
anyways congrats on the install. i see, you doubled your budget in true team bhp spirit!

will put up the costs once the install is done. My budget has gone out of the window. Frank, My budget has been crossed 3x lol.
phamilyman, it was 14,000km for me without a decent ICE
The install is going to take time because of some customization i want and 6.5" spacer rings installed on the alto door have to be given a good finish. Initally plan was to "skin wrap" the whole panel in PU leather. however that is not feasible on the alto because the door panel is one piece (all cars now have 2 piece panels which makes it easy) so finishing will take some time.Thankfully i have Power Windows, mounting depth of the speakers is 3". The problem is with the tweeters, flush mounting them on the panel is not possible on the alto. so will have to experiment with mounting it on the dash / A panels.

Wow! Focal Polyglass for 10k. I was quoted Focal Access 165 A1 for 12k. The polyglass is quoted $449 on their website. If the polyglass is indeed 10k, then it is hell of a deal.
