beautiful, very neat install.

Now its time to pump up the volume

How do we hear the sound, maybe you can record the sound in lossless format FLAC or Apple lossless and upload it on yousend it or Tbhp, not sure.

Love the hardwork and the final results. All the best!

Though X693 is a good HU, but many mention in their reviews that the manual is not upto the mark ... but seriously is the manual that crap ?

Great pictures, install looks neat. Waiting for the cost split up.

Congrats so finally I hope you have got that dream system that you have always wanted.

Just a few question:
1) Does the FG enclosure for the mid range and tweets reduce the Field of View as I see it is protruding quite a bit inside the cabin. Also it is very very visible to any one outside so I guess you need to beef up your car security.
2) Why have you amplified the rear co axials. They are as it very sensitive and could have easily been driven by the HU. Now that they are amplified dont you run the risk of drowning out your front components especially in a small car like the i10?

Thanks buddy,
1) Not by any margin that you can't drive around safe. ya security system is now bit kaput - need to get it done
2) My front components give almost twice the rated power of the rear fills, kinda compensates for it. (Also, there always exists a 'fader' option) I ll have rear passengers quite a few times and i dont want them to hear only the kick (b)ass
