The pana head units are supposed to be quite good in terms of Sq but i haven't had a sustained listening session on any of them, so we'll ask Priyanka how he finds it. Also, i have heard one of those old school ones with the centre speaker. Dunno the model no. Played well even on puny pana coaxials

For the price of the setup and for your listening tastes, the sound is just perfect. Dont bother with any upgrades.

P.S. Is that iPod connection problem sorted out?

To be frank (not frankmehta) I cant hear those co-axs. 10/10 times im driving the car so I have no experience of how they sound. Once or twice just for a 30 secs odd, I sat in the rear just to check whether its playing or no. lol
Alpines are good, dont expect yahuumm sound from it but great as fillers.

Arrey bhai log, I dont know what is SQ and how it should sound. Sam had this HU in his Verna. So assumed it should be good.
Pink Floyd sounds like Pink Floyd, Lil Wayne as Lil Wayne and A.R.Rehmaan as A.R.Rehmaan and interesting part Sivamani's drums sounds same as well.

All you audiophiles and ipodiophiles can audition my car and post their review here.
It is better to have honest & true reviews rather than coming from a layman like me.

Yup, I will be getting rest 3 doors damped but that would be in March-end or April.

iPod, I use only for Hindi tracks rest I use cds.

Congrats on the set-up? Panasonic HU really looks colorful. Does it have an Aux-in from the front?

Btw, how much did the 1004 and 608C cost you?

Nice setup there F50. As long as you like the way ti sounds, i would say SQ and SPL are just jargon.

Enjoy the music.

hehe no wonder arpan you liked the HU " esp since its chamkila"

I got a taste of what chamkila is from the professor of blingonomics on the weekend
Btw flying spur, F50 ,Dippy wait look out for my revenge for the weekend for making me suffer all the bling effects.


Blue Leds in Crossovers, Blue neons in 6x9's , Blue Neons in pedals, Blue Neons at the sub , Red LEd's in Amp , Blue LEds lining along the Dash.

Yeah Chamkila .. right.
