Default Ford Endeavour ICEd

Hey guys
No long tales, I'll cut to the chase.
Got my Endy ICEd on Monday at RM Decor, Cbe.

The Setup:
HU: Kenwood DDX8032BTM
Double Din Fascia Adapter for the HU
Sub: Kicker 15" Solobaric L7(Dual 4ohms)
Enclosure: Custom Sealed MDF Box
Mono Amp: Kicker ZX1000.1
Front: Morel TEMPO 6" 2-WAY Comps
Rear: Morel Pulse 6.5"
4Ch Amp: Mtx Thunder 504X
Wiring: All Kicker Wiring Kits and Kicker wires.
Capacitor: Tsunami 2Farad Cap
Damping: Later
Installation done by Vasif(RM Decor, Coimbatore)


I wanna thank Blueraven and DerAlte for all the advises. I also wanna thank Mohamed, the Kicker guy in Doha and last but not least Vasif for helping me choose the right stuff and installation.

Forgive me for bad quality pics, I reduced the size of pics so uploading wouldnt take ages(I use Reliance RubbishConnect net which is only slightly faster than dialup)

To the point, isn't it.

No damping done? And what about the cost? Care to share?

Massive, it is; the sub(w/o the enslosure) alone weighs 16kgs.
I asked the same question and Vasif replied that this was the best position as the sound would be better directed towards the driver/passenger and not irritating at the same time.
No $, so no damping. Period.

I brought most of the stuff from "GELF"! The only things I bought here were the speakers, the Mtx amp, 1 wiring kit, 2guage wire and misc stuff.
The Doha kicker guy gave me good discounts on the HU, sub, monobloc, farad and 1 wiring kit.

Give below are the approx prices converted from QR to Rs.

Fascia Adapter: Rs.7K
HU - Rs.37K
Sub: Rs.12K
Monobloc: Rs.16.5K
Cap: Rs.6K
Wiring Kit: Rs.4.5K
Enclosure for sub: Rs.3K
Comps+Coax+4ch Amp+Wiring+Misc stuff+Installation: Rs.40K

Total: Rs.126K

Thanx buddy. The sub sounds good but I may change the enclosure to a smaller one to get a more solid punch.

I told the kicker guy that its for my car in India so he gave everything like cost price. Moreover he was a nice person. Yea, everything is with B&W. He said somethin like 2yrs worldwide warranty, donno how true it is.
Does kicker give worldwide warranty?

Used to accomodate the aftermarket HU in place of the OEM since the OEM HU is integrated in the dash.

Something like this:
