Given that speakers are such delicate items - is it fine to shut car doors when the music system is on especially in cars like Fiat, VW whose doors shut with a loud thud. I am a novice in this area. Pls share your views.
What makes you say that ?
Arent your car speakers playing when you drive on our Indian roads ?

I am repeating my question once again here. To drive two 4 ohm DVC subs (RMS 300 W and Max 600 W), can you guys suggest good mono amp within 15k to 18k budget. What should be power output required from amp at 1 ohm load.
I have a 2009 i20 Asta CRDI . The stock speakers in the car are kind of sounding broken now and I want to replace them. Note that I'm not looking to put in a new amp or any new HU hardware. I kind of want a drop-in replacement for all 4 speakers.
Can someone tell me the specs so that I can google for them and buy replacements ? I'm very confused on what kind of speakers they are and what their sizes are.
I am facing a problem. There is noticable lag from subwoofer in the trunk for particular fast songs and it is annoying after certain limit of time. Same songs play nicely at home theatre without any issue.
I played with time alignment settings on HU. Front right speaker kept to distance 0, subwoofer TA set to farthest distance available. Played with position of sub in trunk. Still there is lag although marginal improvement observed with these settings.
My questions are :
1. Currently no monoblock for sub, Will adding mono amp resolve/ minimise issue?
2. I have underseat sub with me, installing it in addition to trunk sub will be any benefitial?
3. If I run a pair of subwoofers in the trunk, will it minimise the issue?
1. Pioneer GM-D8604 (Four channel amp), two channels bridged to run a subwoofer.
2. OK. I will keep aside this idea.
3. 350 cm. (Pioneer MVH-A209VBT)
The amp is fine. 3.5m between the front door and the trunk should be plenty.
I suspect the box for the subwoofer is not the right size (might be a bit small). That might be causing a "bass overhang".
The real challenge is that very, very, rarely do the published specifications exactly meet the real specifications. Is there any way that your installer has a bigger box and can try the woofer in a bigger box?

I will surely check this and update you. Thanks for the tip.
Today evening I just checked with TA set for front both (instead of front right), lag reduced by significant margin however it still doesn't sound perfect. With TA set for Front right, bass comes nicely from dashboard whereas when TA set for front both, bass can be felt all over the vehicle.
