Looks like a good setup. Congrats.

How about the cables? Did you change them?

Do you mind sharing the price breakup?

hey friend,
thats a nice install, really clean infact, i guess this is the first all focal install in a swift at tbhp, i may be wrong though and that hu lights match the interior lighting perfectly, i didnt knew that 7016 also comes with a choice of lighting color, you have a 4 channel amp and 4 speakers and a sub, whats powering the sub ? are u running 2 speakers right off the hu or what ?

Thumbs up Re: ICEd my Swift Zxi

Hi Friends

Thanks for the compliments. My installer, Saravana of Powerzone Chennai, deserves them.

The HU powers the rear coaxials while the amp drives the front comps and the sub.

Polyglass gives a very clean sound - a theatre like effect indeed .

I used Street wires cables. I am very sorry about the pdf files . I have now attached jpg files.

The fitting looks neat and there goes 70% of the precious boot space . Wondering if the woofer gives out the expected effect hidden behind the rear seats though one is left with no other option.

Post some more pictures of the head set in the day light.

Congrats!!!!

Hi all,

I have now damped the rear doors as well - with Focal damping. This was done at Power Zone Chennai. Some pics are:

How does the Focal damping sheets compare to Dynamat Extreme and Stinger Expert Roadkill? Does the Focal sheets come with an aluminium layer like the other two?

Hey Der Junge. I'm getting my new Ritz (VDi) this week end. Planning to take the baby to Power Zone. Would you mind sharing your experience at Power Zone? Where did you buy the parts? Please share the prices.

What a neat install !! Kudos to the guys who did it and congrats on a beautiful set up too. I am wonder how can someone hide all the wires that way ! The sub also looks very compact.

What type of music do you usually listen?

PS: And yes, could you / someone compare how the Focal damping sheets fare against the Dynamat / Noisekill etc? Would you mind sharing the cost of entire set up as well?

Great choice of components and very professional install. May i suggest changing the steering wheel grip to a stitched leather one to complete the look.
