Thanks guys, It was custom built by Satya at EVO Cambridge Layout. Cost me around 3K. Chose FG because I wanted a custom shape and a space saver.

@AKi10: I hope you didn't put Illusions/Bulls blindly. You can tune things and set it up to play quite cleanly (and I'm running a GTO608c off a pio 5050 - as chan chan as it gets).

IMHO, most BHPians lazily advocate changing equipment at a monetary loss - when 80% odd can be improved by just better tuning. Not that I am good at it - but I've seen a decent bit so far and I think its manageable.

My 608c components costed 3800 gray, much more VFM anyday than Illusion/Bull at 6.5/7k respectively!

And yes, you have a lovely sub enclosure. super awesome - I would much rather leave the sub at home for enough boot space! What was the cost?
I haven't purchased the compos yet. Still deciding. I might still go the JBL way.

Thought about it, but then didn't want to put any leakes in the box.

Very well made and good looking woofer enclosure. BTW, does the cut out grill on the parcel shelf aid in bass distribution inside the cabin?

OT - nice alloys. How much?

The wires to the sub would need a hole that needs sealing any how, doesn't it? The connector plate could have been sealed the same way. Either soft rubber sheet (not foam) or silicone 'glue' (used for washbasin and bathtub grouting) between the connector and the wall!

Thanks to Satya, the cut out grill does help in bass distribution inside the cabin. I might need to rework on the cut out portion.

Those alloys were love at first sight. They came up to around 13K for 5.

Well I guess the damage is done. But definitely could have got it done on the box itself.

I will post some pics of the HU. Haven't taken them yet.
