You will find the difference only if you are in an area where reception is less.
On one extreme (LOC1 or LOC3, I don't remeber), you have least sensitivy, so that only powerful radio stations are tuned, and on the other it will lock on to any signal it can find.
If you live in a area where you have lots of "ghost frequencies" for example apart from 93.5 you get a poor quality copy of same radio station at 93.6 you are better off tuning only the most powerful stations.

HI
I want to fit my amp in the boot of my santro. Can anybody please help me out with the location where to put the amp. The side walls of the santro are too small for the amp to fit. The Dealer told me to fit the amp behind the rear seat.
If anybody has fitted the amp on the rear seat of santro, is the seat strong enough to hold the amp????

Hi Swapnil
Go ahead & fix it behind the rear seat, I dont see any issues with it at all.
Are you going to FM Drive for the installation, if yes be rest assured that you are in good hands.

All the best

Hey guys!

I have been using the Alpine 9883 HU for some time now. Love the SQ, though been pondering for some time over an upgrade to 9887!! (We are insatiable beasts, aren't we?!)

There is one issue in the 9883 which bugs me immensely:
While I am browsing for music on my iPod, I go: Artists -> Albums -> Songs and select a song to play. Now, if I want to listen to another song from the same folder, I have to start looking for it all over again, going through all the artists, albums and songs!
Is there an easy way to do this? This is a big problem when ur 80gb iPod is crying out for more space!

Thanks!

Amplifiers behind rear seats are just fine. I have two fitted there . Works like a charm. No issues so far .Enjoy !!!

Hi following is the setup, but installation is not superb and cables used are not of good standard. I would like to DIY the installation with good set of cables / wires with some damping. So please suggest me good brands and type / guages of all cables needed (power, ground, RCA, speaker wires, fuses etc) as well as damping material (type / brand). Please tell me the options from US also as I can buy online and import here through friends.

If I go for monster cables, what should be the guages for each speaker wires? Any good brand of RCA cables and type? What about power, can I use any good industry standard brand available here like Anchor or Finolex? If yes guage?

Or is there a good place / person (in TBHP also) who sells all these and I can get it parceled to me?

HU - Pioneer DEH-P4050UB (with USB/Aux in, 3 line out)

Front doors - JBL GTO607C Components with crossover, tweeters mounted at A pillars. 70W RMS at 2 Ohms.

Amp for comps - JBL GT5-A402 2 ch amp, 40W RMS at 4 Ohms, 60W RMS at 2 Ohms.

Rear doors - JBL GT5-652 co-axials, 45W RMS at 4 Ohms, driven by HU

Sub - Blaupunkt GTb1200 12" sub in sealed box. 250W RMS at 4 Ohms

Amp for sub - Blaupunkt PA275 2 ch amp, 75W RMS x 2, 200W RMS x 1 at 4 Ohms.

Smile blaupunkt V6 vantage.

Guruji,

Could you shed some light on the blaupunkt velocity v6 vantage loudspeakers ?

Would you advice me to buy this and not install a separate sub as they claim
on the website the component speaker acts more like a sub, as they also
include separate swivel mount neodyium magnet tweeters ?

Also, I read in one of the threads that as the parcel tray is weak and shaky the music system does give you the real o/p it is supposed to give.
So is there any way to make the tray strong enough ?

Thanks.Peace!

redfire , most of the equipment should be available in tvm, especially the HU which i was quoted ~6.3k without B&W , and the speakers and jbl amp.

A small request to the gurus-Just got my fronts installed - I feel that my door panels are making way too much sound than i expect from them ( none )

Any help here to shut them up as well as my other DIY queries would be highly appreciated

Green - all these equipments are already doing their duty in my car. I just want to redo the installation properly with good quality cabling / wiring and damping. Thats why I posted the equipment details so that a guru can suggest good AWG of cable / wires. I read in my amp manual that 10AWG is recommended for its power. I think 8 or 4 AWG will be more good. Also planning noisekills. Main equipments are there in tvm, but quality accessories and good installers are hard to find. so planning to source them and do it. We are in same boat

I just read the last part of the post and thought you wanted the stuff couriered to your place
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/produc...le-thread.html

LBM was recommending finolex stuff as a VFM option, and i think he meant the power cables.

Do let me know if you find someone who does damping in tvm. Taking apart an entire door is beyond me :(

hi redfire.for power cable you can use finolex.it is very reliable and great VFM.i think 4 AWG would be perfect.
if you can then get the rca cables from u.s.just go through e bay,i am sure you will find some good deals.
for speaker cable i would seriously recomend illusion audio reference series speaker cable(14 awg).they come with tin coating and the build quality is top notch.
pm B&t for more details.

Have seen damping works done by one guy. Was a joke. Get Noise Kill.

Few 5"-6" components sets can reproduce as much bass as a good sub. If Blaupunkt claims so it is very optimistic.

one can reinforce the rear tray using resin bonded fiberglass mat but is a messy job. a easier way is to get a new tray made of 3/4" (19mm) MDF or void free Marine ply.

Maybe it was my virgin ICE ears, but sk456's components (Rainbow?) seemed to do this quite well!
