Nice setup there !

Never heard the name Mutant but by the pics the quality of the stuff looks quite good.
The way damping is done is rally bad it will not help you in anyway get it done the way it is done in the pic below, BTW how much you paid for damping.

Never heard about the mutants or how they sound.

As suggested already, the damping should be re-done. Invest in some quality stuff like DynaMat. Expensive but quality stuff.

Hi
The photographs attached was when they had started the dampers . The door is completely damped and i can feel the result in high volume . I am satisfied by there job .

The best thing about Mutant is that it gives beautiful vocals . If u are a vocal fan , this is the speaker . It doesn't play like JBLs like what my friend has from JC road .

More over my friend has fitted a sony entry level which does play iPod , but does not show exactly the play list like my Pioneer . It shows junk or 2-3 line characters when he connects his iPod to the sony system . We did connect his i Pod to my system which plays perfectly showcasing all Playlists .

The ICE is very decent setup. How much did the HU cost? Plonk a sub with amp, would do justice for the boot & damping.

This setup has a JBL Amp + Polk 8 inch Sub. Both the doors and the boot is completely damped . The HU is from Pioneer India with warranty .

Cost is 10K INR

Congrats Ranga. Excellent ICE setup.
Kumar's shop in kormangala is good. My fried got Sumoku subwoofer for his Swift from there. I have seen that they also have a mini theatre in their shop. They had told me that a similar setup (as in the mini theatre) can be done at the home and would cost aroung 200K.

Its almost a month with my new car + ICE . The sound is exceptionally fine . The vocals are very good and the image of the sounds as if its out on a 2 band stereo amp.Due to the sub woofer placements , it sounds as if the sound is coming from 2 channels in the front with bass getting a uni directional . One can listen to music in low and mid volumes very well . The 7 band graphic equaliser really helps in pepping up the system . The mutant crossover with the midrange tweeters are doing there job quite well .

Hi Ranga,

Great to know that you're enjoying you're setup. I'd love to audition the setup sometime as I really want to check out the mutant stuff. Could you please oblige?

Thanks in advance.

How did you zero in on this installer? I have met/spoken to a couple of installers who have been spoken about on this forum and your answer might help me make up my mind (The 'encounters' so far didn't leave a very good impression. Some of these guys are just out to make a good buck.)

If u are serious about ur car audio , AP is the right place . They know what they are doing and seriously calibrate the entire setup .

One can spend 100K INR for a system . But rarely have i seen some one calibrating the car audio .

It also depends on what kind of music u like .I see some ICE setup which can be heard 4 blocks away. I am more worried about Mid range and not deep bass hitting u left right centre .

IF u are looking @ vocals , decent mid bass and bass to cover the whole car , then i would suggest the above setup .

Many of my friends have sat in my car and have liked the L +R Front stage music setup . We are all used to boom from the back side .



We spent at least half an hour to calibrate each frequency . It was very similar to a HT calibration .

Interesting. What process and instruments did you use to calibrate each frequency?
