Santosh, please read the MRP label before buying anything and you wont face this dilemma. As for 'getting started', when the hell did I stop?

I was referring to things that don't have any concept of "MRP label" as such. If it does have then, well, I live in a place where MRP stands for "minimum" retail price!

What are these strange things you buy that dont have MRP label?
It is illegal to sell anything without an MRP label (with the example of things like livestock and all such things), and it is compulsory to indicate whether indicated price includes taxes or not.

In tbhp-ICE language, it is called "without B&W". (though, I wasn't exactly referring to ICE products here)

it is the problem in the pioneer 944 amp. when played hard it trips. I would say get a new mono amp for the sub duty. also is your sub 4 ohms SVC.

No B&W, no VAT. Simple hisaab. I dont know how someone can charge you VAT and not give a tax invoice.

counting on me?? lol you and all of us can count on b&t but why me?
anyway, i would love to do it. and maybe if i have the knowledge some day i woud do it. with the guidance of all the people here including you im on the right track.

BTW wanted to ask, what makes speakers sound bad or good? for e.g pio subs are known for producing one note bass, why cant they have better subs? dont they know how a sub should sound? comparing a 306 with a 12" jbl sub in the same price range jbl is far better and doesnt produce one note bass form what i have been told, why? does pio have bad designers/engineers? or they do it on purpose? why woud they do it? please shed some light on this gurujis

cheers

It can be changed slightly to make it C/B/T, it will look like inspired by a/d/s! Oh, but then you guys may not want that, because that is going to defeat the purpose of creating own identity

We are stretching it too far, but whether he gives me an invoice or not, it makes me laugh when I have to believe that he is going to pay that 12% chunk to govt!

i havent heard the jbl sub. if ever i compare them, it would be in one car with all other equipment constant and with enclosures built to manufacturers specifications. i had clearly written 'from what i have been told' why are you confused? :-)

not really. im gonna check all the wiring and fuses if there is anything loose. when i increased the volume(i was going somewhere 20 min back) the system tripped, the HU switched off for a second and the clock was reset. i think i know why this is happening. last week i was adjusting my cig lighter and the screw driver shorted the +and-. everything went dead(HU,clock,lighter) i checked every fuse but everything was ok. then after a while everything came back to life. that is when this thing started i guess.
now i cant figure out whats wrong. the fuse were ok. there is some kind of a diode in the fuse box in the engine bay. maybe it is related to all these things. i dont have the owners manual so ill see if i can find it on the net.

any solutions??

cheers
