can i audition it after install?

and one question
will the stock fiestas alternator will be able to take load of 4 amps + AC + Headlights all at once ?
will the battery be able to take the load?
or will you be using capacitors?
sure, you can come check it out. will be done by mid march, i hope.
as for the electrical part, fingers crossed. (but at the back of my mind, I know she will be comfortable, since I don't listen to music at very high volumes)

Oh...Right now running with 75-80 watts as the amp is 150 x 2 at 4 ohms. Will be putting the bigger one..which will put approx 175 per side let us see what is the result !!!!

But with just 75 watts it is making very good output. If one is not a lover of LOW_BASS there is no need for a sub with this midbass upfront. I am running them with a HPF of 40-50 hz with 12 db slope and these babies shows no fatigue of any kind.

(PS :- I do not deal in Anarchy Midbass it is such I am using a pair only)

They have a mounting depth of 93 mm that is approx more than 3 1/2 inches... I have to use few spacers to accommodate that depth !!!

LBM, that looks really cool for a Swift. But when you consider Ford fiesta, the mid-bass location is in the center of the door. And the size for the mid-bass is 5x7. Will this fit into that door and how much modification do we have to do for such a location??

Anarchy midbass have a low sensitivity at 84.7 at 1w/1m plus they are 8ohms. Fs is about 45.8 with lower Le. From the spec these can run down to 40hz at steeper slope 24db or more with 100-125rms without any long term issue. If crossed higher they can handle more power than the rated ( this confirmed Kevin Haskins of Exodus. )

One could run two of these on each side wired in series at 4 ohms with amp putting out 200rms. Which means each woofer gets about 100rms and cross them down to 40hz. One can do without any subs with these monsters.
4 of these playing upfront will be perfect match to the horns. But ofcourse a lot of fabrication will be required. Mounting them is tricky.
Or otherwise power these with 2 channel bridged putting out 250rms at 4 ohms which gets them 125rms at 8ohms.
The other good part these can be crossed higher up upto 2.5khz.

My car is at Ajay's since 2 days. We are good to go!!! Woooohoooo!!! I am going to get her back today.
The following work is being carried out:
1. Dynaudio Mids in doors
2. Horns (not yet here,) hence using a basic tweeter (maybe my Luccent tweeter if I can find it)
3. New amplifiers are being installed in the rear. Hiding the JBL amplifier. Hence reducing the clutter due to so many amps present in the boot now.
4. New LCD touchscreen (HDMI version) being installed in a custom fibreglass housing in the center console.

Other minor stuff.

Very excited. Will be awesome to hear the Dyns with the new amps tonight. Also, will be a good time to hear the Luccent tweeters again, TILL THE BIG MUMMA ARRIVES (the horns)

Don't worry, you won't have to wait for shows to listen to horns starting soon.
