Yes planning for weekend. I am ready almost.. getting a lot of configures...

Package 2
----------
Auditor 4180 amp
DLS c6a 6.5" Components
Ground Zero T30 Sub (used one)

Package 3
--------------
Infinity ref475a amp (used)
Hifonics zeus 6.5" components
ID CTX12 Sub

Which is the best package to a normal person listening to bollywood new arrivals, regional songs (new generation kind), some times english hiphops and other songs.

Guys !! At last I have successfully upgraded my ICE phase 2 project now. Just back home from the installer, pictures are yet to upload, will be uploading soon.

By the way the stuff upgraded and holding now are;

Head Unit - Pioneer 4050 (still the same untouched)
Rear - JBL GTO 948 Limited Edition (still the same untouched)

Front - Boston S60 6.5" Components on the front doors
Amp - Infinity Ref475a
Sub - Rockford Fosgate Prime 12" with OEM enclosure
RCA- Sosche
Wires- 8ga

I have listened to Hifonics Zeus 6.5" and DLS b6a Components by fitting the same on my car and was not satisfied. I got the real stuff what I need after listening to Boston s60. The issues I find as per my taste is;

Hifnonics - Was on the brighter side
DLS b6a- Very basic component from DLS, I felt its missing a lot of sound particles during its role. I found the base good but the mid bass and the clarity missing in this particular model.

Then tried the Boston s60 components and found its has all what I need. At the end of a thread full of confusion, I made it.. I am there where I am and really happy to have a SQ Setup.

more pics to come....

Quadra.. lets meet this weekend.

By the way its a packing material, not a major damping material and its our own thermocoal sheet.

Anyway I need to meet satya for damping the rear boot and to put grills on the speakers. so lets meet this fri or sat?

I have a similar one at my place, enough to damp the 5 doors but not sure how to do it. How much did it cost you per door. If its reasonable, i will get it done this weekend too.

Can you elaborate if there was any diff in cabin rattles & outside noise ?

Will PM you on when to meet. I need to listen to your ICE.

He didn't charge me separately. He did it as part of the installation package.

I am not feeling any rattling or any kinda jarring till now. The setup is soo tight and the punch is tight for my taste.

Sure lets meet, probably this fri or sat at satyas place. I have boot door packing and grill fitment pending.

Nice fit and finish. Change the carpet on the speaker rings to vinyl. It will give a stock look.

Its the foam sheet and cost Rs 85/- for a sheet of 1mX1.5M and thickness 12mm. You have to use synthetic glue to stick them.
