Salman, I suggest you get stuff from GP Road and have it installed at PowerZone. Have you started your hunt for the components? Please have a look at Tbhp directory for further details on the Vendors.

Mutantx - Getting stuff from GP road might sound easy, but without proper referrals there is good chance that you'd get duped with quality of product / fleeced on the price front. I feel it would be better for him to approach GP road with some senior bhpians.

There is a lot of duplicate product movement in that place. Be really really careful before you spend your money.

Check with Jeewajee, Anna Nagar if you just want to buy some genuine stuff to get it installed somewhere else and do identify yourself as a BHPian. He should be able to help.

I havent bought an HU/Speakers from him! But, he is one person who has been straight forward and genuine when I wanted to buy some electrical stuff for my car.

salman_ferrari - Please try Chandru Automobiles in GP road. Contact person is Haresh. He is genuine and straight forward. You could also visit his ICE room which he has displayed high-end stuff. You can also ask him for a demo.

@donarun, Yes I have to agree with you on this. GP road is full of dealers who fleece unsuspecting customers. One has to be careful and exercise caution when buying audio equipment from there. A senior Bhpn might not be required.

Salman, you can post your requirements here along with the GP road quotes. There are many audio gurus in this forum who can help you verify and cross-check the prices.

Default My ICE Installation

Guys, I have left my car for installation today morning at Power Zone. Saravana told that the work will be completed by tomorrow. Just keeping my fingers crossed.

So, finally the Church relented! Hopefully, with the prolonged blessings of the Almighty, your install will not go Anachronix's way;-}

Another excuse for a meet? When/Where? Tomm post 8pm at Anna Nagar?

^^ I probably missed my prayer schedules before I went to Powerzone and got it the way it was done.

Another reason why the install was messed up in my car by Powerzone

@ Pr_007, I will pray for you man!

What?
I would pray 10 times before even letting the car venture anywhere near GP road, Powerzone would be least of my headaches.

Thanks for all your prayers.

I have had only the best of the best experience with Power Zone until now.

So, I am not worried about his work.

Just worried about how the SQ will turn out and my amplifier that was bought from UK.

That is all.

Anyways Guys....the work will be completed today by 4.30 and I request all of you, who can make it, to be there by 7.30 so we can have a small audition of my setup.

I would definitely want all your comments. So, please be there.

Default Re: ICE Installation : Power Zone (Royapettah, Chennai)

For my Quasi Active 4 way setup (which is a one of a kinda build), i visited nearly 7 'BIG' installers in CHennai. All big names that one would say when it comes to car audio in Chennai.

Except for Power Zone and Sound Works, none of the other guys even understood the requirement.

I went with Power zone as Saravana, as he understood that it was a dream project and promised me that he will ensure utmost care and attention.

It is indeed a complex install (needed to remove the A/C vents)- but the way he handled it was wonderful, a really commendable job.

The way he went about installing the power and ground wires, damping, HU everything was right as per the text book.

Not many installer can do it, atleast here in Chennai.

Do see my ICE thread for pics
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sound-...ophile-23.html

10 out of 10. Highly recommended
