And finally a monoblock with a good sub. Did you mean Pio 5150UB? Is there a 5190? I hope then it will be very similar to 5150. Its a good HU. Just make sure it has 3 RCA outs for seperate front/rear/sub outs.
yes sir,the 5190 is with bill and warranty whereas 5150 is without them.rest apart the h.u's are exactly similar.and it does have 3 rca outs.

I suspect Ground Zero or JBL would do the trick. My nehpew listens to all this electronic music and of all the brands he tried he prefered Ground Zero (JBL, Pio, Infinity and Blaupunkt were the other brands he tried).

Still I'd advise you to listen yourself and make an informed decision.

FM transmitters by design are prone to interference at almost any frequency. Try 87.7 Mhz. The lower bands should prove less troublesome.

I will tune the Itrip to 87.7 Mhz FM and let you all know how it fared.

Thank you.

By the way between English/Hindi and Regional how many FM stations are there in these parts Delhi NCR, are there too many ?

Need help on ICE for my ANHC EMT. I have recently bought ANHC and had opted for base version EMT. SO, i had to opt in for after market ICE accessories from dealer. (not the standard audio system from honda)
I got a deal (not in VFM sense) from dealer and got package of Kenwood 543U- HU (50W*4)with front and rear speakers (Nippon 1601)- 80W(not sure per speaker).
I replaced my rear nippon speakers and got sony XS-GTX 16202S (components-80W rms) and fitted them in rear side.
I am not very happy with sound as it seems to be so drowned.
I think components on rear side are culprit. PLease suggest the options -
Option 1. Move components from rear and fix them on front side
Option 2. get a amp (please suggest the cheap and best amp-what about sony amps - 2/1 channel amp or 4/3 channel amp from sony). I am not very sure of other brands.
I am not a big audiophile so just trying to get some bang with my money, and am left with no money after spending on a brand new car. May be later i will buy more stuff as woofers/subs etc.

What do you want to drive with the contacts of the solenoid? (I presume that 200A load is at 12V nominal, and is non-inductive)

In auto-accessory-spares-shop parlance, it is called a 'relay'. Ask any auto spares shop for a heavy-duty relay. Otherwise, you need to head to the nearest industrial supplies shop for a heavy duty solenoid/contactor (L&T, ABB or such) with a 12V coil rating.

Dont push these drivers below 100Hz. That said they are reasonably quick midbass drivers and will work best in a in door install (high Qts.) where QL is about 15-20 (to bring down Qtc).

What sort of budget do you envision spending on your ICE?

I dont wanna change my HU and existing speakers for now. I am just looking at shuffling the speakers. (if i have fitted them in wrong places).

In near future, i want to add woofer and an amp (Rs. 10K budget).

They are presently crossed over at 63 Hz. The Frequency Response says 43Hz to 25K Hz (because it includes the tweeter frequency as well). What's the point in declaring Frequency Reponse starting at 43 Hz when Resonant Frequency is at 86 Hz. I am not aware of what Resonant Frequency means. Please elaborate.

If they cannot be pushed beyond 100 Hz, I would only hesitantly call them mid bass drivers. This brings me to another question. Can they be used as a midrange drivers in a 3 way setup? Any pros and cons?

Default metal on my speakers

Just an experience I wanted to share.

My car speakers suddenly went bad.

A lot of noise and disturbance at almost all sound levels.
The ice install is about 2.5 years old and quite basic.

A pioneer HU and 4 inch speakers that fit into my Wagon R.

Today I decided to remove the speakers hoping it might be a loose connection.
Instead found a small metal clip stuck to the magnet.

Removed the clip and viola the speakers are working like new again.
