@docg: which focal amps have you installed?
Would be very interesting to see some of your installs in the Installer Showoff Section. Since you are new at the business, it would be a good start to endorse many of the 5 star installs you have already done.
We would be honoured to see some photos and some hardcore information! Would love to appreciate your star-studded installs man!

^^ x2. @docg, please put them up in the Installers' Showcase. Otherwise, we will have to assume that these were 'virtual' installs!

They're coming. Get ready for a slew of posts in the show off section, I'm just delaying it to start the myriad of posts with that of my car, a true SQ demon.

Franky, I am new to the business. The company is not. We've been around 20 years, and the guy who started it all is an IASCA certified installer. So yeah just wait about a week more, damn rains are causing too many delays.

I don't want to start another thread about this as it's not a show off as yet.

The amp is a Focal Solid 1 mono. 300 W RMS @ 4 ohm. Please for any other details PM.

**I apologize for poor pic quality, but this is the best my N95 could do in the evening.

How old is this amp. It looks to me that 2 screws on the top row are missing.

WRT to the IASCA certification, IASCA holds a course for installers, and few are sponsored by companies to attend. The course covers many aspects of installations, matching products, physics etc. At the completion of this course, a certificate is issued to indicate that the installer is amongst the best trained. (IASCA trained) Most people who attend this course drop out, as it is rigorous and demanding, and many installers in India don't see what value this could add to their business.

I have a similar query. I am not satisfied with the stock Mitsubushi speakers and wish to upgrade while retaining the HU.

My budget is undecided but will in probability not exceed 40k. I wouldn't mind going with Clarion or JBL or JVC equipment as I get discounts on them.

I am not a big fan of waking up a sound system that wakes up the neighbourhood nor a big bass freak, so not sure if I should go in for a sub ? I have a 8 speaker setup in mind : 2 tweeters at front (pics attached), 4 speakers for the 4 doors and 2 speakers at the back tray.

Please guide.

The missing screws have no reason to be removed for remounting. Anyway that is another story. Just want you to know that if the amp has been damaged and repaired (that is why one would remove those screws) you should be aware of it.

A sub will make your midbass sound cleaner as it wont have as much work to do and the sub will go lower than your midbass can go. BTW you do not need the 2 speakers in the back tray. It will only muddy the image.

In the same boat except for the minor difference that I already have an Infinity 5350 5 channel amp and a Blaupunkt Odwa subwoofer(From my older car). Don't want to disturb the HU. But the folks I have taken for install told me that the HU does not have the pre-amps and hence cannot be used with my amp..

Is this true?

Navin,

Which configuration would you suggest considering my situation ?
