well jk your pricing stuff is really going to help me a lot.

Now can anybody throw some light that a flat packing seald sub box is available at US or not. I know one is available at walmart. anything else? So if my weight limit permits I'll carry one from here.


BTW, I picked up my second 14g speaker wire rim (15 mts) as you all suggested. Also I picked up some 16-14g tap connectors, quick connects etc. Anything else I'm missing or its a waste carring it here from US.

Box material is immaterial! LOL.

As long as the box is stiff enough and does not resonate dont worry what it is made out of.

I reccomended a boxed sub, as those boxes are well designed and perfectly suited to a woofer's characteristic. Saves a lot of hassle. A bix is just not any box. And you can't just put a 12" woofer in any box that accomodates a 12" woofer. When you do make a box, it has to be made. Well made, considering all your woofer's characteristics.; Not too many people can or will go through the entire hassle of that.
Also i didn't recommend that you carry a boxed sub from the USA - that would be madness
I merely recommeded it, assuming you were going to buy the boxed sub here.

I would recommend Active-Boxed subs if there were good ones available. Given the limited operating range of a subwoofer one can make an average amp do the job of a better amp if one could tweak it to an particular subwoofer and use the amp to complement the sub (by tweaking the Qtc, etc..).

Default HU & Front spk for INR 25K

Hi,

Can I request the forum for recommendations of HU and 5.25" front speaker (totaling around 25K) that I can audition for our Ford Escort. I have had to move the earlier ICE set-up (Blau, Infinity, based) a few weeks ago to an Elantra I use more often.

I listen to CD's of varying Genres. SQ is preferred.

PS: I am sorry if this specific query has been addressed before. A search of this vast thread did not turn up a suitable recommendation.

For the HU I would ask you to consider Clarion 766 and for the front speakers Hertz, Infinity, Alpine or Polk.

Dont about the prices, and I have not heard the Hertz or Clarion so I am recommending you to listen first.
