Sony 444 (or whatever) 4 ch amp driving the sub and speakers.

Well this setup is pretty old - this was when only sony and blau were available through authorised channels. But nonetheless this still does the work for me.

I hook up my creative muovo music player through a cassette player. Bass is good - enough to make my hairs stand up and make the ORV vibrate

Might as well upgrade the system but not anytime soon. I am yet to get bored of this setup

But Harrie,
Why you need external amp to drive the bass tube?
Do Blaupunkt has the active Bass Tubes?

I had the amp anyway i had made it some years back. and I dont think Blau has any active tubes in India atleast at the time of my install (oct 04) they did not.

Gotta say this. Desiging car equipment poses a unique set of challenges.

Why not try the OD series sub frm blaupunkt? it rated at 100watts rms and damn slim and can go under seats. haevnt yet heard it but have seen and felt it when i was in germany. and last day i saw the brochure of blaupunkt and OD series was in it.

Used them and thrown them ... nothing more than piece of crap...Blaupunkt is overcharging for that product.

Dont even ask abt soomuko...instead use a pioneer 306C in a sealed box...Better choice anyday. Should not cost you more than 5K with the box

ok I am going to say this even if it hurts....

I like Mahendra Palesha. He is a very nice guy but what i have heard from those woofers of his left me wanting. the bass is lumpy, one note, etc.. he explanation was the market demands this. i hope his future versions are better.

i am a big fan of indian companies and promote them vigoursly if they are equivalent to their international counterparts. i dont promte any thing else. why because i feel that indian companies are lacking the big budgets of the international brands and promoting them is my way of leveling the playing field just a bit.
