Bought the kit from Arush. Will get it shipped this week. cheers: Planning to put 2 10" pioneer and 1 12" JBL sub woofer and 4 kenwood components in the ICE. What and how many amps will i need and how many RCA outputs are required to set-up such a configuration?

Serious ICE eh ?? 3 Subs & 2 sets of components You'd need two 4 channel amps & one monoblock. (I am no ICE guru)

One 4 channel to power the 2 sets of components. One 4 channel to power the 2 10" subs (bridged) & one monoblock amp to power the 12" sub.

The combination of amps can vary of course, the gurus in the forum may give you the perfect formula



Cheers

Post the query in the ICE section and you will get lot of answers. Have you bought the equipment already. Is there any specific reason you want to go for 2 10" pioneer sub woofers and 1 12" jbl sub woofer.

Actually i already have one pioneer 10" sub and a 4 channel pioneer amp (sub has good output so i don't want to let go of it), hence i want to pair it with another 10" sub. I have also bought the 12" jbl sub so all i need is to know is "what else?"

Kit getting shipped tomorrow cheers: - basically this is just front bumper and rear bumper skirts and side skirts - similar to what ricky has on his car (so no suspense )

Meanwhile finalizing on the ice - discussion going on in ICE section.

Paint my car Silver & voila you have a perfect picture of Somubj's car
Looking forward to the WIP pics Somubj !

One suggestion. Get your Rims painted dull black or Graphite Grey, if you are keeping the car Silver. The combo will look very nice IMHO.

All the best.


Cheers

nice! but there will be some additions ... like stock fog lamps on the front bumper...no smoked tail lamps and a touch of black color on the front grille and probably a black hood or roof. (how will the car look with just the roof blacked? ... photoshop gurus..please help )

Note from the Team-BHP Support Staff : Please take the time to use proper punctuation as per Team-BHP rules. Avoid...typing...like...this. Thanks.


Received the kit yesterday ... paintwork should start this weekend.

BTW: my car's suspensions have started creating some trouble ... it gives some "thud" kind of sound when it hits a bump ... this is familiar to me since this happened before when my mechanic told me that the suspensions are gone ... not the spring outside..but the gas filled thing.

Any ideas about what it can be and if i buy new shockers...which ones should i go for? Stock?(Konis are wayyyy to expensive and i don't bottom the accelerator ever ... no harsh driving either) And how much will they cost me ... i want to replace all 4.

Might take a couple of days to start the paintwork. I am taking an insurance claim for complete right side and front of the car which should cover some cost of painting the kit.

Got some general maintenance work done ... replaced clutch plate and clutch bearing with new ones (odo is touching 91000 kms and this is the first change of clutch plate), rear struts changed and front suspension arms changed to new ones and all suspension bushes changed too - car is running smoother now.

Bill: some 13 grands.

Paintwork yet to start. Will upload the wip pics once its on the go!
