1) You didn't liked the Rainbow in comparision to Bull or its the VFM factor that made you choose Bull?

Thanks. Rainbow was superb and I liked it very much. But I did not have the moolah (almost double the price).....will wait till I upgrade...I did not hear illusions though I had considered it, so can't comment.

Congrats Monty.
I had followed the thread of your dilemma with the budget of 25k and its stretched to 36k finally which i was expecting fully (thats why when am gonna seek advice for my cars ice setup will start 10k below my spending limit as am sure the Gurus here will drive me overbudget easily - am easily driven towards fine things in life and cant say No then)
But what matters is the end result and the happiness to follow. No matter how much money you spend but if you aint happy with the output alls vain.

Thanks. Very true....But all the help and advice from Gurus were very thoughtfull and constructive. I overspent (a little!) but thats okay...I am happy with the install and thats what matters at the end of the day...

Its better to spend once rather making efforts again and again.You tend to loose more if you play the buy and selling game

Nice clean install Monty. One cant even see the wires going in the amp specially in the 6th PIC.

Do post tweet / midbass pics and how about some night shots of the HU

Thats true. There is no end to being better or upgrading. One has to know where to stop and be happy and satisfied. I am happy with my setup. Period.

Thanks. I am using a 80GB iPod and 2GB pendrive. Also I have tried the system with pendrives of 14GB and it works fantastic.

I have the similar setup in my Swift, was installed at Driven, with JBL components at the front and coaxials at the rear door, with an old 10'' ported jbl sub in a box & some Dynamat extreme damping in the front doors. The headunit, the Amplifier & the wiring is same as yours.

Sounds great!

I have not used any damping in the doors as I did not find any need for the same in my i10. Very little noise filters into the cabin. So damping would have been a waste.

Filtering of external noise is one thing, but how about rattling caused by subwoofer or midbass notes?

I have not felt any rattling sound by subwoofer/midbass. Maybe the install has been solid. But I will wait for sometime to judge my system.

Yes, I felt the same way. Also Mr. Rana from Driven discouraged me from damping the doors.
