That is not Dynamat extreme..I think it is the noise kill. That is the reason he is thanking Ajay.

I'm currently on the process of finalizing the equipments and installer for my ICE project. I have tried many installers in chennai before, but I wasn't too happy with the final outcome. I see there has been many positive reviews on this thread and hence want to approach saravana from PZ. I will call him sometime later this week, but can any of you who had experience here before suggest me for the following

- Does he sell all brands/equipments? I have narrowed down to infinity components for the front and co-axials for the rear fill. The car in question is VW vento.
- Does he sell HU's too, I have finalized on the pioneer AVH P3350BT HU.
- Does he sell only with B&W?
- I'm little confused on the amp part. I heard good feedback about Auditor, but want to check your recommendations too. I'm reading about some special price for members, can I avail it too? Excuse me, if I cannot.

Thanks in advance for your inputs, and do let me know if I need to quote someone over here to start the conversation with him. Any other suggestions and inputs are also most welcome.

^ You can check with the member rahulkool who got infinity components for his palio from PZ. He doesn't stock many brands, so based on your preference he would make the purchases from GP road etc and do the install. I guess there would be a certain markup but not sure since previously I bought the items and got it installed over there.

Not sure about B/W you can ask and check.

I think he deals with auditor products so if you have finalized on components you might be able to get him to install it and demo it before you decide.

Thank you Bottle and Prithvi for your messages. I got in touch with Saravana and discussed my requirements with him. Only issue is, my budget has just gone for a toss after discussing the equipment list with him. Following is what was recommended

HU - Pioneer AVH P3300BT
Front Compos - 6.5 " Morel Maximos
Rear Co-axials - 6" Morel
4 Channel Amp - Focal 4 Channel Amp (2 channels for front compos and other 2 channels driving the sub in bridged mode)
Sub - JL Audio
Wiring Kit - Audison

My priority was good SQ. I'm yet to finalize the list, and will be doing so in a day or two, Meanwhile, Can you comment on this and any suggestions please?

I did the ICE install for my Punto 90HP last week, at Powerzone.

Details of the install are available in this thread -
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/sound-...raris-ice.html

Must say - I'm 100% satisfied with the work carried out. When i went to the shop the first time - I only had some basic knowledge about ICE based on what I read on the forum. Saravana listened to my opinions, let me hear few installs, suggested the products and did a fantastic install. Today - we had another tuning session (As the sound signature became sweeter once the initial run-in had been done) and I'm just loving the end result - every note blends beautifully!

Got some very basic ICE upgrades done on my Swift ZDI at PZ.

I added the following from my previous cars (Manza had a all Blau set up) to the Swift ZDI
a) Blau Velocity VC542 components replacing the stock
b) Blau Velocity va 575 amps
c) JBL 12" sub
d) Head lamp upgrade: 100/90 Hella with relays
e) LED cabin lighting including the foot wells and below the front seats.
f) Damping of both the front doors

Since the HU (Nippon) did not have pre-outs, Saravana installed a high to low converter with remote poweron, used all new wires. He also replaced the sub enclosure with a new one as the old one was crappy. As I generally listen to a movie songs, pop, mild carnatic, the tuning has been done to be have a good balance of bass, highs and mids. The sound quality has improved a lot over stock set up.

However one thing that came out was the low quality of speaker and comps that came as OE.

Hats off to Saravana for a very clean install

Off late, I feel that PZ has become too expensive to visit. I was charged Rs. 2200 (I finally paid Rs. 2000) for replacing the power cable to the Amp located in the boot. I really don't know if this price is justified. They also retained the old cable which was damaged by rats but, still it was good enough in length to suit for hatchbacks. I don't know if PZ started to exploit the customers since they are getting a lot of cars nowadays. I remember they quoted Rs. 4800 for damping the front doors in my car. I may avoid visiting PZ from now on. Not as confidence inspiring and started to feel that I am being exploited.

^^ I got a clarification call from Saravana this Monday. He explained me the charges in detail. The wiring cable is of premium quality and costs Rs. 1700 with the fuse. And that he charged Rs. 500 towards the labor. Also, for the damping, he quoted Rs. 4200 (with material and labor) for the front 2 doors for Linea. He clarified me that he never over charges or use inferior quality materials. He also clarified me that he never re-use cables with any other cars and offered me send back the old cable to my home (which I denied).

I never had any issues with the quality of work done at PZ. I only had some apprehensions on the pricing and they have now clarified me on this.

Go to Tenny's place in Kodambaakam. It's called Metal Effects. I've got more than 6 cars installed there. He's good and gives your car attention no matter what budget or work you want done.
