Thumbs up The Simple & Humble ICE for my Swift DDiS

Guys, Finally attained nirvana by getting the ICE stuffs from Mr. Ajay Kamath, our honourable Senior Bhpian . He helped me a loads to select the stuffs for a low budget setup. I specially thank him in and all.

I thank all the fellow members who suggested and gave their precious advice on my PMs.

The Stuffs as follows:

A) Kenwood Excelon KDC X994 HU
B) Illusion Audio EL 6.1 front compos
C) DLS 428 on MDF rear parcel tray.
D) Auditor RIP 4280 4 channel amplifier
E) FOCAL Solid 1 600W Monoblock
F) KICKER COMP VR 12" 4 DVC Subwoofer
G) Amplifier Power kit from Soundquest - 8ga & 0ga
H) RCAs from Stinger.

I post the pics of the equipment for now & later the installation pics as the installation yet to be done.

Fantastic choice on the HU & components. Not sure how kicker would sound with Focal. Liked the position of the connectors on the sub though!

Waiting for the install to complete! Do keep us posted.

Hye dude ram, you can try Haute carzone in ECR road or Tecnokrat. Have a look in our Team bhp directory for further details:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/chenna...t-chennai.html

Just call them up, fix a date. I am sure they would help you.

At Tecknocrat, the install will be good.
But, I've never seen them care about SQ.

Yeah nitrous ji, I was waiting for your post . Any suggestions from you buddy for a good SQ install. I'm skeptical whether my equipment comes under SQL setup.

Update: I spoke to Bala (Teknocrat) just before. He gave an appointment on coming Monday (28th) that he will do the install part for me. He asked me to be at 9 am sharp. Nitrous saab, your help needed in this regard
