Ofcourse I know you guys are official. It's just that delaying entry into mumbai might give the grey marketteers time to steal your thunder.

BTW I was just kidding. I qualified these statements as such with a smiley! :-)

He gave me a demo and I said Thank God I did not hear them before. These guys were trying to push on their Watt funda's on me.

Stay away from M.A. and Earthquake.

BTW for those who do not know there is an M.A. Studio in Naaz cinema compound on Lamington Road but these guys are fully into JBL installs. I was skeptical when a guy from Sahil said that I can get an install done from MA :P .

P.S. SAM: The MA guys have a framed picture of an Eyeballer and another pic of a car which I couldn't identify having 4 amps in the boot. Could you please post post pics of the install?

US radios are set for odd (91.1, 95.5, etc...) freq. This has been discussed here a few times. Please seach. I know I have addresses this issue in detail atleast twice.

Default I JBLfyed my Car

Some history first.

I have been following this thread from October even before I took delivery of my car. After sifting through pages and pages of info I decided on my HU and speakers. Owing to budget constraints I got good coaxials for the front and put off components for later. That was in Dec 05.

In the mean time I never stopped following this thread. On Saturday my desire finally got the better of me. I decided that the time had come to spring for some components.

I went to Sound Factor, Lavelle Rd, Bangalore to get JBL components. As a Team BHP member, I was eligible to a sizeable discount due to Sam's largesse. The best bit was, I ran into Sam himself, who was there on some business. It was a real pleasure to meet one of the Gurus of this thread.

The installation did not take much time since the speakers were attached directly to the HU. And after the installation Sam checked out the sound and gave it a thumbs up. Thanks Sam.

The speakers sound great. The sound is a lot clearer and I hear notes that I never heard before. I'm happy with my system for now. I know for a fact that the urge to add a sub will hit me soon.

Cheers.

Thanks,
Gopi.

Just see in its manual if it allows for EU tuner settings or not.
If not,i dont think there is any solution.

Scared or JBLfyed? You can only be JBLfyed when you see Sam.

Oops! Sorry for the first post. Some confusion there.

I need to start reading this thread - I'm sure there is a wealth of information here.. except I'm petrified what it'll do my my already ballooning budget (.. ballooning???... more like DISTENDED!) ...

Need to figure out whether I take leave for a month or so to do it -... or to keep it for my retirement!
This is like an EPIC !! all of 3000+ posts and over 200 pages and counting! SAM : Look at what you have created!!
