heheh. there would have been a lot of bass&trouble in the car then
i think the illusion electras began the whole thing. now i know who to put the blame on, if/when my dad sees the final cost of the ICE!

Congratulations for your upgraded setup!!!

I am using the RF amps in my car for quite some time now and I am a fan. They are great amplifiers to own.

Like you I cannot say VFM or cheap because I bought them in India and they costed me a lot more than they should have.

I have a RF Punch Stage 2 sub in my car powered by P300.1. And my car is an estate version. Still no one believes that it's just one sub giving out that thump.

I had put up a thread when I had the installation done...
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sound-...car-s-ice.html

Although I don't have very detailed review like that of yours, but then I am not qualified enough to write that kind of a review.

As a consumer...
I believe, if given enough power, Polk Momo is a great component speaker. I have heard 3-4 other acknowledged component sets in the same price range and 1 component set which was 3 times the price of Polk Momo. And so far I haven't regretted my decision to buy Polk Momo; they have the best sound when compared to these. But sound is a personal choice.

The only component set which I liked as much is Atlas Hifonics in Satya's car.

I'm not at all qualified :-) i'm also an end consumer like you. Have just been too fussy and highly demanding of late. Finally, i'm happy with the sound quality after so much chopping and changing. Thats why the detailed review.

Yeah, I remember that. I was the other guy pushing him for the 6.5s in the front.
I too felt Frank wouldn't listen and was fussy about "originality"!

Good. One more person to blame:-) on a more serious note i do remember both of you'll urging me to get components. By the way, i was reading the earlier ICE threads i've opened and found it quite hilarious. My budget was 5k at the max :-) ha ha ha. And the questions i asked! I don't blame anyone for branding me a ta-ta-tananana tandoori nights kind of fella :-)
Thanx guys, it was a brilliant suggestion!
EDIT: just played that song on my Luccents right now. I laughed so loudly that people at the signal thought i was a lunatic:-)
