Hi Ramesh, can you please give the model number of the Focal amp. Also how was it connected to the OE music system? Line-in or PnP? This happens to be the biggest question when upgrading Linea/Punto ICE.

For ICE i just upgraded the speakers to Hertz Millie Series 5 1/2" (OE fitment type) Components with Sosche Dampening to all four doors trust me its super amazing effect u dont need a AMP to power them and crisp bass like a small woofer has been installed. Will be upgrading to a Small woofer very soon.
Thats great.

I was very much happy with my setup in the previous car. I had alpine HU and JBL components at the front and JBL coax's at the rear. But, somehow I was not convinced with the output of HU in Punto.

I may soon add a Sub.

Happy dieseling.
Thank you very much rakesh.

Thanks ihmisohjus.

Great. I never expected that I will get a reply for this. If I am not bad in memory, your car color is medium grey right?

Default Update on ICE

Here's some update on the ICE in my Car.

After two weeks of usage (with Amp and front components), my mind was in search of something more out of this system. Decided to upgrade my setup with a Sub-Woofer. Headed to Power zone again and discussed with Saravana. Finally, decided on installing MB Quart 12" Shallow Sub. This will not occupy much of my boot space. This costed me Rs. 10,500 with enclosures and the installation. Now, I would say that I am totally satisfied with the output.

Here are some pictures of the Sub installation.

After joining Team BHP for a long time, I was thinking of ordering the stickers for my Accent CRDi. However my wish has been fulfilled, a car with Team BHP stickers on it. Thanks Ramesh for the Punto with Team BHP stickers.

All this happened while browsing the classifieds 13 days before, the car listed in classified with 13K on ODO and less than 6 months old attracted me. Mailed and received a confirmation message back, fixed next morning for personal inspection of the vehicle. Impressed on viewing the car.

Next convincing the family (wife, son & daughter) to go for the vehicle which took one day. After getting a green signal, an initial payment was made and then started working for loan with Kotak bank. Entire loan processing went off smoothly.

Yesterday morning I was able to settle the te payments and take possession of the car (with Team BHP stickers).

A pooja was performed for the car at Adayar Anathapadmanaba Swamy temple and then upgraded speakers, with JBL components at the front and JBL 2 way co axial at the rear. Retained the HU. Upgradation was carried out at Sakthi Cars in Radhakrishna Salai.

My wishes Giri.
I am confident that the car is in Safe hands now with another T-BHP'ian. I would soon be upgrading and come up with another new ownership thread.

Note to Mods:- Requesting to close this thread as the car is no longer with me.
