Looking to get Vifa XT19TD00-04 3/4" Ring Radiator Tweeter or Vifa XT25BG60-04 Vifa Ring Dome Tweeter - Double Magnet - 4 ohm.

Please suggest any other tweeters

I can use crossovers from PPI and then can go active later on.

Regarding Amps thought of kenwood x4r for now and looking for other options.

@frank, i am getting impatient now. Love to hear those Aplines and waiting for the review.
Let's not hijack this thread my friend, but I am not too sure how do you plan to use the SLS6 in that case. Sls6 are strictly for midbass purpose and are linear upto 300hz. If you plan on SLS6 than you would also need a separate midrange speakers. Vifa ring radiators are good choice but not something that you can say they are damn good. For rings, it has to be the Scanspeak but a pair would easily cross 400$ plus. You can also look for dome tweeter from Scanspeak, Seas Excel, Morel MDT12.
Anyways I suggest if you have further queries why don't you in that case open up a thread for yourself, that might help

@Franky: I guess it would have been good if you would have ordered the amp /fuse kit from crutchfield itself. Anyways I suppose a 200A fuse can be built, if you would I check up with some here, know few people who can do this. What it is get that system started mate for the time being and order for the fuse kit. May be 1 extra incase the fuse ever blows you may not have spend time looking around.

Franky, what happend ? Are you searching for the fuse or the thief who stole your 'tree' ? Whatever it is, the patience level is dying. If Vit M is the issue, pull out few extra tooth and balance it up. Its a huge crowd waiting to have the audition. Its an ALPINE bomb waiting to be heard ! Please speed up.

Thanks for the patience guys. Sorry to keep everyone waiting.
About the fuse....
I got a call from a gentleman in Faridabad, on friday. He was none other than the lowest bass maker of north india.
All he said was, gimme your address. I asked why. He just insisted on taking the address. I texted it to him and he sent me a BRAND NEW ZERO GAUGE FUSE HOLDER WITH A 150 AMP fuse in it!
My conquest for a fuse was over.
The next day I received a neatly packed small box with Ms. Gurneet Audio written on it.. That was it! My fuse.
The man had sent it with his compliments, and I am indebted to him for this.
Lbm Ji, thanks a million.
this fuse is going to be used to make abnormally low bass just like yours!
God bless you.


Ps: need a lot of more free equipment like the plutonium subs in your office, and some horny stuff from your car. You have my address :-P

Floor damping is not required as the car is tough enough,franky will you be making a slot between the rear speakers so that you can have sound from the sub travelling inside the cabin easily??

I would suggest do up an FG work and mount the Boofer upside down it will look real hot,trust me this sub sounds just amazing,be ready to feel the vibrations All the best for the installs.

Paaji Tussi great Ho!
Or you can add a 10" passive radiator instead of keeping those slots open , make some one believe that is the boofer shaking the car up..just kidding.

Lolz abhi i think putting a 10"inch PR will actually make some people think is that enough to shake the car and demand for the 10"inch increase hehehehehehehe...!!! (unlike they open the boot to see how the amp looks

Frank thats a good idea go for it put a "Bombay Uffer" will cost you about Rs.150/-
