Front Right Side Door

Front Left Side Door
ICE' ing the White Beast- Scorpio VLX 8 Seater-lh-dr.jpg
The components were fitted to the Door Trim instead of the Door Inner Panel due to various reasons
1. Since the components mounting depth was more
2. The Door Pad is made of Hardboard and PU Foam and not of Plastic like other cars
For others makes we can mount in the OE location itself
The tweeters were mounted as near to the comps to get a better sound stage
The Components - Close up

The Tweeters with swivel provision

The Rear Ovals for fills
ICE' ing the White Beast- Scorpio VLX 8 Seater-tgate-dr.jpg
The Rear Ovals were mounted in a custom made MDF board and way away from the stock locations to improve sound staging and reduce vibration on the doors.
The Right

The Sub Enclosure is a snug fit in the Limited boot space

The Roof Mounted LCD Monitor was mounted using the OE location for the Room Lamps to avoid damages to the Head Lining and to avoid disturbance to the driver

The Audio Files can be browsed using the monitor by the Rear Passengers

To compensate for the Room Lamp loss LED Lights were installed in the Foot wells front and Rear

That sub seems familiar! Where did I see it earlier?

Will be nice to check out how it sounds/feels when the sub faces towards front.

Hi Prithvi,
Very neat install, really liked it. One question, since you changed / rewired the front speakers as well, is your voice assist still working? I understand that your steering controlls could not be connected, but do you know any add-on that can be added to this HU to make this working?

Congrats for your install,
Scorpio Fan

This setup looks nice .

Looks like there will be a lot of sound with so much of speakers in front , rear with the Sub woofer .. Should be rocking left , right & center

prithvi I see that you haven't installed compos on the center doors. Dont you feel a void in the music when seated in the center row ?

How did this help ? Coz from what I hear in my setup they sound brilliant in the stock locations itself. However that said, the install has been done neat.

whizkid_ram - Please check out Page 1 for the Review related to MTX in brief, if you sometime drop in to chennai you can have a audition if possible.
scorpio_fan - One BHPinan had PMed me from delhi related to steering control interface, his handle is hihaneet
Ranga & raj_5004: Thanks for your comments and it is rocking left,right, & rear
rjstyles69: The setup in mine is little bit different, the ovals are mounted in a enclosed box when compared to your where it in the stock location... the rattle in the tailgate door is less and the midbass is more from the ovals.

Got a chance to audition this beast.

I am in love with those Midbasses. Super duper Punch, better than an 8" ID CTX and Polk db.

Very neat and professional. Congrats Prithvi, hope you are enjoying every moment of music.
