Default Upgraded my scorpio 2.2 - Final Upgrade with Pics on Pg.3

yes, i am not an audiophile, so guys, please dont expect high end stuffs in my car. instead you can find some pretty basic stuff in here...

it all started when i bought my car in may 08. i had little knowledge about ICE then (even now i dont know much!) & i installed a sony woofer + sony 6x9s + sony 2ch amp!!!
as soon as i got the delivery of my car, i realized somthing was amiss! i just had not got what i expected.

1st upgrade: after some months, i changed the useless sony woofer to a JBL bass tube & changed the 2 ch amp to a 4 ch one. i did this in a shop in mulund & i was very much infuriated by their shoddy work & low knowledge on the same.

2nd upgrade: (before starting anything, I would like to thank ramie because he was the mastermind behind this, kudos to him...) when i felt like nothing is working, i got in contact with ramie (also, my HU had broken) & met him today. he heard my system & came out pretty sad. the first thing he said when he had a look at my HU was "is this what mahindra provided as OE?" (now i know what you mean ramie!) i had a limited budget of 10,000 ONLY & i was selfish enough to want a HU as well as front components within that budget. again, a special thanks to ramie for making this happen! finally my second upgrade happened as follows:
* useless nippon HU changed to pioneer 5050.
* again useless stock front speakers changed to VTREK compos.
i am very happy with this new setup & it is defnitely a vast improvement over my previous setup. ITS MONEY WELL SPENT. also, thanks to ramie for spending time to listening to my setup after the installation, taking time to tune & set it properly. in the end, i am a happy man...

3rd upgrade: to be continued...

attaching some pics of my latest upgradation:

the VTREK is pretty new in the market & is much cheaper than JBL.
i had two options: better brand or better performance. i opted for better performance, at a lower price.

Good job done there! Thanks, Ramie, but His Yetiship will not feel good about this! Or maybe he'll let us in on the secret that Vtrek is a subsidiary of JBL!?

So now you need a louder, more powerful pen drive, uh..duh??!
CDs take up too much space!

Try setting the SLA level to +4 for USB. I am sorry i don't know the exact method because i dont have a USB HU. But it should be -> Select USB mode -> go to menu -> Function -> SLA
Can some Pio USB HU user confirm this ?

Congrats Bro. Please post a review of the compos. Because of its cost effectiveness. many of us may think about it during our installs.

i am not a good person to post reviews about compos buddy. ready my first statement- i am NOT an audiophile. i have never heard compos from illusions. i have just jeard GZ & JBL, thats it. so i wont be able to compare.
but one thing is for sure, i dont need to upgrade the front compos in the near future. this thing plays loud & clear with absolutely no distortion. any more louder and a normal human being would go deaf! so i am very happy with the front compos, PRICE NOT WITHSTANDING....
