Hi
Sweet install. I was eyeing the same Kenny HU for my car. Could you tell where you sourced it from? and what were the damages (if you dont mind)?

You can get the HU from Driven for 13K. I have the same one and it sounds great.

Thanks! For the price, it's by far the best HU you can get. If you have someone coming down from US, you can grab it for ~200$. Or else, you can buy the X7016 locally ~12-13k I think.

Now, with time and run-in, the left tweeter became perfectly OK but I can still hear this distortion from the right tweeter. So my question is, that is this phenomenon commonly observed on all silk-dome fabric tweeters? I asked B&T regarding this and he said this should settle down with run-in in a few more weeks. But still am curious on why this occurs only on a few selected tracks.

Thanks for reading!
I am still not sure what caused the problem, apparently the tweeter was damaged during transit. But many thanks to Ajay who sent a replacement set of the T-25 tweeters! The DLS R6A are going to serve me for long! Smooth and detailed sound.

That ICE is just awesome. just wanted to ask you how much did it costed and how is the overall effect ? does it bring any kind of load on the battery ? i have booked a new alto k10 and when i was selecting the speaker with amplifier, the person at the MGA accessories told me that a speaker with such a thing would bring unnecessary burden on the battery.
I liked the alloys treatment ? how much did that cost too ?

Thanks David! Approximately 50k give or take. Overall, a nice SQ install for an Alto. Alloys were 5.5j plati, around 11k an year back.
And congrats for the K10, test drove it yesterday and found it a pocket rocket indeed

The guys are MGA Accessories might be knowledgeable but they'll always misguide people for their own profits. Now what he said might have been true if you plan to run 2 15" subs powered by a 1500 W mono. For a SQ install, the 40A alternator provides more than sufficient power. And yes, even for a SQ install, it's recommended that the car be running for ICE (alternator keeps on charging the battery)

Forgive my stupid question, I know for a fact that ALTO comes with a double din, I see a slot just below the Kenwood H.U. Is it readily available and where can I get it?

Cheers!

I was referring to the below slot. My installers did cut the front plate of the double din and inserted the H.U. in the top half of the din. Bottom part is covered. i want to utilize that space to keep some C.D's or something. When i asked them, they quoted Rs.600. I thought it was pretty unreasonable.

Yikes. 600 bucks is too much! I remember when I got my ICE installed for the first time, no cutting or modding was required for the HU slot and the one below.

Thanks bro! Mine didn't come with any slot :(
there was just this piece of grey plastic thing which covered the entire slot. ICE installer cut the top half of that plastic to insert the 1 din Kenwood H.U and the bottom half is still covered.

Oh gosh, looks so different. My alto (1 year back) came with the usual 2 slots (both open) and the dash is unicolor. I see your dash is light and dark grey!

Thanks! 4" components, well, go for 6.5" ones if you can! Might involve modding the door pads but the improvement in sound is totally worth it!
