Hey Ram, Drive to Bangalore, I feel Evo will handle this setup professionally.

I am not sure how the kicker sub will sound from Focals and Auditors. But the install will be neat and Blueraven knows what he is doing. So I prefer you to call him up and fix a day, it will help you to get perfect attention.

I was tied between the ID CTX and the Kicker while recommending, but he said he wanted to get as much bass as possible, for the budget, which tilted the scales in favor of the Kicker.

It depends also on the system is tuned. If the gains and bass boost setting on the amp is kept too high, any sub can distort at very low volumes.

Hey ID's are better than Kickers in SQ setup. Kickers mostly support SPL setup. But anyway its up to the listener.

Hmmm. I think Kickers satisfy both the SPL & SQ. Read it on the web sometimes back.
