JL was first suggested by Pr_007. When I asked for the JLs, I was just given them without any pitch for MTX. Anyway, the XR that I have is out of stock. It was discontinued and replaced by the ZR and that costs 55K or something here.

When is the Linea going for the install and what stuff is going inside the car?

I will most probably go to this place for damping on a week day. Thu or Fri morning most probably. You free on those days? Tough to get a Sat appointment there unless booked in advance.

^^ For the Linea

1. 2 sets of Hertz ECX 165 already installed from Haute Car Zone. The installation was pathetic and third rate stuff. The installation needs to be fixed and tweaked.
2. Clarion VX400 HU
3. Kappa Four
4. Yet to make a decision on the sub.

Installation is planned on the 13th of September.

I think this Friday is a Ramzan holiday for me. Need to confirm. If it is, then let's do it that day. Assuming my damping is here by then.

madan, that crossover can be fit on any system and not just the Fiesta OE ICE. I don't think it will be too expensive, so you could probably try it out. Ask for a demo and buy it only if there is a perceptible difference. I think it would make a difference.

My friend has purchased the VZ400, not the VX400. Sorry!

Costed him around 350$.

The ECX was bought by my friend last year. IIRC he paid around 9.5K per unit. He was clueless about ICE when he made his purchase.

The Kappa 4 was purchased in US. Costed around 260$!

Any idea on how good Haute Car Zone is with Stanley Leather Seat Covers? A friend of mine is in talks with them. Apparently Stanley Leather-Bangalore says that HCZ is the only place where we can get this done in Chennai.

An amp like the Kappa 4 deserves to drive a better pair of components. Ask your friend to upgrade to Kappa components.

Well, it would be cheaper to drive down to Bangalore and get it done there itself. I am sure you must have read enough threads here to know that HCZ sucks big time when it comes to price and service. The only guy who has ever reported good service turned out to be the owner of that place! If going to Bangalore, take a look at Karlsson as well. In fact, Karlsson might be willing to send a guy by train to fit the seats if your friend is putting Nappa. Check with them.

He wants to audition the Hertz speakers working at its potential and make a decision.

@Gilead, the Kappa components are 90 watts RMS @ 2 ohms, whereas the Kappa 4 gives at 125 watts RMS @ 4 ohms, so imagine the powere @ 2ohms.

We have to be very careful with the Power then.

Hey Anachronix, why don't you try JL XR 650 series components that Gilead has in his fiesta. They are really good.
