Congrats Shaju, the ICEing is almost over. A little fine tuning and your're there. I bet the Hertz sounds as good as they look.
Would the Stock HU be able to handle the them incase put in a set without an amp ?

The Bus guys are a real pain. Today evening i was near Jewel D'Paragaon in front of the Petrol Bunk (spotted what looked like a Sliver SLR ) and while i was stuck in the traffic, a Big Blue BMTC squeezes in from the Left. They just don't care.
I am sure you will be enjoying this Diwali with the Fiesta Audio Fireworks.

Go Fida

btw, what brand is your reverse sensor system?
Thanks for your suggestion Raamki and today the ford service centre called me up and pleasently surprised me taking quick action by ending their technician with the special adhesive of Ford (as told to me) and re-pasted the whole thing. They also informed probably while fixing the rear view display on top of the stock mirror, their show room accessoried people mis-handled and may be taken out the stock mirror and re-pasted with local glue which resulted so. I wish now it should stay there.

Regarding the sensor system brand, it's Xenox with 4 sensors.

I think it should work fine, although the amplified effect can not be compared.

If I have to believe what you said, its shocking and sad. How can FORD execute their technicians for the satisfaction of the customers, that too killing him dipping in the glue !!! Horrible

================================================== =====
OK fellow countrymen, here are the boot pictures !
Boot is decently spaced for a long trip without issues. Doesnt it look simple and neat ? Blaunpunkt Amp is like a small fellow stuck in the corner, but he is powerful enough to rock the car.

This is when you want to tune the Amp. No struggles, 100% accessibility.

You can see the controls here. There are 6 knobs to play around. I am yet to figure out what suits me best. Apart from this, we have BASS, TREBLE, Compression, Balance and Fade in the Stock HU menu too. Presently HU settings are all put to Zero.

Dear Twin Brother; that's what makes you standing out in the mass. Great observation and greater sense of humor.

LOL, my dear twin, compliments accepted, but please dont continue instigating FORD to do what you made them do, we will be in trouble running out of good technicians. So what have you planned on your first Diwali with your 'beauty' ? Taking her out for a long drive ?

Dear ICE Gurus and Kurus, here is the cropped version of my Amp knobs. Let me know if you have any tips based on what you see. Its just front Components and Rear bridged to Sub. No rears. Thanks.

By the By this is my 39th. Diwali, so as yours I believe being twins. Jokes apart; Diwali I want to enjoy at my home with family gathering. However next weekend planned to go to Chandipur (Sea Beach in Orissa) about 350Km one way with my Biesta.

WOW, sirji forgive me if I have said or done anything against your liking anywhere in this whole forum. I always thought you are very much younger to me. Being a twin, a 2 years younger is understandable I think. My fiesta number is ending in 72, so thats the year my parents 'discovered' me (no kidding this time, seriously its 72).

Thanks Franky, you were with me right from the biting of ICE bug to the installation time. Thank you so much for all the help. I think not being a bachelor, not being in the field of dentistry, having no girl friend who has no control over the boy, not having a 'tree' that helps at every need of life, and many many more reasons, what I have done is decent enough for a medium level music crazy soul. I dont want the ICE bug to bite me again.

May be a stanley protection at a later stage, but only when I feel the stock seat fabric is totally unusable. Until then, more miles to crunch. Waiting for reasons to drive !

Any tips on music tracks that can help in a better tuning ?

Hey Shaju, not sure if you put it up earlier, but how much did the entire setup cost?

Total was 25k rounded. It includes cost of Components, Amp, Sub, Box, Installation, and Wiring harness. I think and feel every penny spent on this is worth after listening to it for 2 days. May be my tuning is not fully done, but as of now, it rocks.
