Hey congrats bro franky, absolutely drool stuff you got there.

But i noticed a few things in your pics.
In the first pic, notice the speaker on the left. The left portion of the mounting plate of that speaker looks bent to an extent. Even the dynaudio stickers on the magnet looks faded to a degree

And in this pic, it looks like screw marks on the mounting holes, don't you think?<br /> <a href=Ford Fiesta S: Eclipse, XBL2 and NOW WITH HORNS!-dsc_0574-copy.jpg <br />
Not that the above things should matter, but its something i noticed and found in the pics which i felt was pretty unusual for a brand new speaker soo thought i'd bring to your notice.<br /> <br />
anyways congrats once again bro, cant wait to see the final install pics and your report in true frankmehta ishtyle<img src=

cheers

good you noticed. the midbasses have been yanked off a friend's car. that explains the slight fading of stickers.
as for the slight bend, it's more exaggerated in photos. But it's still there, but only slightly. Functionally, it's absolutely fine.

Shaping up very very well Frank! Looking forward to the final result. Love the way those amps look together.
Will the stuff get put together at 4 Seasons? Might drop in and say hi, and take a look at the install.

By the way, couldn't resist.... toilet brush set??

LOL about the brush set. It's MADE IN ITALY, though :-P

It's definitely at Four Seasons but the install will be after 10-15 more days. The HORNS for the compression drivers are yet to come.

Thanks. I hope I can accommodate those two in line.
There are 4 amplifiers in all now, and I dont know how they will fit on the backside of the backseat!

CSS SDX7 was almost a surety. Common sense prevailed. Wish I could fit the SDX7 though
