Folks.. I was dying to ask few question or clarifications last week when I went for a upgrade of my GP's music quality. Whilst the TFI site was being upgraded, It was a feling of a lost like a child in kumbh melaa and was confused. but i had noted down few critical points from earlier TFI ICE Thread visits (read it as stay and not visit ) Ok, now to the point - I visited MI Road in JPR, this is the hub of all ICE dealers for us. there are shops located in narrow alley ways including the main MI Road. My budget was Rs 15k (Without SubWoofer) My 1st pit stop was Reliance Autozone near panch batti circle on MI Rd, there ample of parking space and various items to choose from. Doesnt deal with Blaupunkt systems JBL AMP - 800 W - 4 Channel -9000 JBL Components - 6500 JLB Coax - 2600 Wiring - 700 Fitting - Free Dampner - Full door - 2 front doors - 2500 Subwoofer : by this time i was sweat 2nd pt stop, a dealer on main MI road, passed thru the alley way carefully as others cars including autos, tempos were queued up to get iced and wanted to avoid any contacts with such dealer due to the fear of Gugaad kind of work they are habitual of doing & no trust in the quality of material they would use... pretty much this lane is full of ICE shops only and a child in me was pushing me to stop and query them on the requiremets... by my heart took over and told me to drive to main road.. On MI road visited 3-4 dealers and everyone sounded as they do Punto ICE every day.. one even claimed that he just did on yesterday and et all.. I just avoided that kind of dealers and went to a shop called Shyam ICE shop, besides Stan Chart bank. this guy had advertised Clarion on his hoarding & there were 3-4 vehicles being atended to. Went in, it was a welcome break from Jpr heat, it was a/c shop.... asked him about Clarion, he said its not available anymore as the cost of CLarion is too high and no one wants to opt for it and he said he got the dealership of PowerBass range and its from USA, but made in China and gave me brief lecture on quality etc and persuaded me to move away from JBL and opt for PowerBass. The rates were comparable and actually was Rs500 cheap than JBL. However, I had made it clear that as there was no audition given, my car can be used to do it and if I am not satisfied, i will return the speakers and amp and he has to replace it with without any frills or question - THis pact seemed important to him and me as well, as I like to expermient and give away feedback. I will come back on what happened (leaving a clue to guess), snaps, if I still have PowerBass or changed.. what went wrong and what went right... stay tuned... wife is cranky, to take her out for some routine shoppin as i spent last 2 weeks ICE'ing my beauty.
