Talking Advanced and Mind blasting I.C.E for my civic



Namaste for all the I.C.E gurus.

guru jis' I am modifying my 2008 Honda civic 1.8V and my budget is 25Lakhs.
I like the civic very much and I want my civic to get everyone's eyes on it.

Planning for a very huge modification.Please advise me in getting MY I.C.E in the way I mentioned in the topic title.

Overall budget is 25Lakhs,it's not "only" for I.C.E,for all the other mods though.

Please please please

I have not heard much about Installers in Hyderabad. You may have to consider Bangalore for your ICE install. I am gonna keep an eye on this thread.

Do start a thread about other modifications you intend to do on the car.

What is the ICE budget?
What mods are you planning?

What is your expectation of this system. A Civic has some limitations in what HU can be used. beyond that how much trunk space are you will be spare for the subs? what kind of music do you normally listen to?

With a big budget like yours you are going to be innundated by many many possibilities. You have to carefull sift theough all of this and form a very clear picture of what you want. Otherwise the money could well be wasted.

My ICE budget is 10L

I am still planning upon the other mods yet.I can give up my entire trunk space for the subs,I don't keep any luggage at all and I go for my office in another car.This car is my first love and want to see it as a real stunner.

I listen to all kinds of genres except death metal.

melodies,oldies,telugu/tamil/hindi/pop remixes,metal/heavy metal/rock/hard rock,reggae,pop,techno,romance,sad songs etc etc those are my genres.

ICE should be in "tolerable" condition by the car and engine.

10L...hmm

Eclipse 7200 MKII HU -------> ~ 30k
Illusion Audio Carbon series ND6.1 in fronts-----> ~35k
Illusion Audio Carbon series ND6.1 at rear-------> ~35k
Illusion Audio Carbon series ND12 x 2 Subwoofers-----> ~70k
Dynamat extreme damping all over-----> ~18k
Fibreglassing door panels ------> ~5k
Illusion Audio Speaker cables------> ~5k
Sommer RCA cables-------> ~5k
Steg K4.01 for the fronts (completely active) --------> ~55k
Steg K4.01 for rears (again completely active)--------> ~55k
Steg K4.02 to drive both the subs. -------------------> ~100k
Installation -----> ~20k

Total = 4,33,000/-

Phew ! not bad eh ?
Good VFM, capable gear, can play loud or laid back depending on the tuning.
I am aware of these products and their tentative prices. You could also consider Rainbow,Image Dynamics,Genesis,Audison,Hertz etc....
Maybe others who are more familiar with these products can help you.

Best of luck with your ICE'ing your Civic.

Start slow. Trust me even 10L is a lot of moeny to spend on ICE.

The first thing I would do is work out a plan.

1. Damping - doors, firewall, trunk, under the spare wheel, floor board, anything that is metal should be damped.
2. Upgrade the Power wiring - the Big 3.
3. Start listening to as many audio systems as you can. Let us know the kind of speakers (home or car audio) you prefer. At this price range almost all car audio equipment can do the basics very very well. It is just listener's prefences that are the deciding factor so you have to use your ears and listen.

See as neveen said 10l is lot of money to spend on ice don't just go by the stuff value you need a very good and a sensible installer who know his work, Spending money just to buy the equipment, i will say as you are in hyderabad get in touch with the members there hear their install and then decide what all you want.

For 10l you can buy the best of the stuff that is available in the market.

See If I am satisfied with the system which costs me 5 or 6 L or less than that,then I will be happy or If I am satisfied with a system which is more than 10L then I need to make a compromise.That's my idea on the budget.I don't want to spend my entire 10L for the ice,I should be happy with the system

Yeah can we change the illusion to dynaudio.I think dynaudio would do better justice in this kind of a high end system.

I'd really suggest that you go for the dynaudio Esotar series.they're really expensive but are totally worth it.Zucchero has the dynaudio Esotec series in his car and they absolutely rock.they are the absolute number one in speakers.Period.
