I have a Map My India AVN in my Civic connected to a jbl 4 channel amplifier. I am wondering if a digital sound processor will fit in and if it will enhance the SQ further.

I have a Bull Audio SW-12 sub hooked up with the Hertz HE 1D monoblock.

The problem is the amp cuts off after some time (due to over heat). I might have to replace it.

Can anyone suggest a decent monoblock for the sub please?

Sub rating : 200W @ 4ohm

In one of my friend (fellow bhpian)'s Honda City, recently a Focal Polyglass 11 inch sub was added linking it in bridge mode from a Rockford fosgate medium end Amp.

While controlling the volume and in medium to high power mode, the woofer excursion causes additional tapping sound, is it normal to get additional tapping sound which kind of distorts the sound when the trunk is open? Does it indicate a weak surround ?

Note: The tapping sound is something like the voice coil membrane tapping the diaphragm from behind as the speaker is trying to pump in that much air as the program played was bass heavy.

Hi Experts,

Is it possible to fit a sub-woofer on the parcel tray on the Vento TSI ?
If yes, then is there are SQ degradation with this type of install ?

I have seen many cars, namely, OHC, Ikon, Accent where the sub is mounted on the parcel tray accompanied by 1 speaker on each side of the sub.

Your advise will greatly help.

Thanks.

Hello Mitz, The type of setup you are referring to is called - Free air or Infinite baffle. These were common some years ago and mainly in hatchbacks to save space. I don't know if Vento can take up this type of subwoofer install but the only advantage of this will be space-saving. I personally have never heard a good sounding free-air sub. Also it becomes difficult to manage rattles from the plank over time. Now a days you get quality sub boxes and Vento has good boot space so why go for free-air install?. If you are looking at Sound quality, a 10/12 incher in a sealed box is the way to go .

Hi all, I am planning for a speaker upgrade for my Polo. Reading through the forums, I guess I will go for changing the 4 speakers and add a 4 channel amp now, with damping material and cables. but the maximum I can spare is 35 - 40k. So I called up one shop in Bangalore they said I can go for Audisson 4 channel amp (20k) (forgot to ask him the model) + Morel tempo components (20k) + Morel some lower model co-axial (7k). And overall he is quoting 50k. May be he wouldn't have given the final pricing as the discussion was over phone. Will Morel tempo cost that much? And is there any good place in Bangalore who sells Morel as I guess Sachin's Auto shop deals with limited models.

Is there any model with the same sound quality with a lower price as I definitely cant go beyond this price. My emphasis is on clarity, and bit of tight bass. I listen to most genres except for Jazz.

I have a very funny problem with the Ice setup in my Figo. Gurus.... please help.

Recently, I replaced the OEM HU with a Pioneer FH-x759bt. I have retained the original factory speakers as they sound really good. I have also added a set of Boston 6*9 oval speakers on the rear parcel tray.

The Front channel is connected to the 4 OEM speakers and the rear is connected to the Boston speakers.

Now the problem... When I play music with the fader set at either full front or full rear, the sound quality is great with ample bass and clarity. But, when I play something with the fader set to 0, the sound is absolutely pathetic. Sounds out of sync.

Really looking forward to the gurus helping me out here.

Hi ICE Gurus,

I'm planning to upgrade the stock HU of my Alto K10 AMT. I'm looking for something with bluetooth, a 2din unit preferably. I also have plans to add a reverse camera in future, so a unit with the ability to double up as a reverse camera screen would be ideal.

I'm looking at JVC brand (as I had one in my earlier car and it served me very well). I'm not sure about Pioneer as there are quite a few fakes on the market. I dont want a SONY unit for sure.

Any models or brands that you can recommend? I am also looking at composite speakers all round as my budget is not very high. Can I get all this within 20-25K? Can I squeeze in components for the front speakers within this budget?

Opinions and suggestions pls!

Swap the + and - terminals of both the boston speakers and try again. Looks like you connected them in the wrong phase

That was the first thing I checked. It seems that the Front and Rear channels are out of phase and not the left and right ones. Need a solution for this.

Any reviews on the Pioneer AVIC-F80BT head unit? A few shops recommend it a lot and a few shops say it hangs often especially during navigation. Any inputs will be helpful as the cost difference is negligible.
