    Grande Punto 1.3 90 HP
    Car- Grande Punto 90 HP

    HU - OEM

    Front SPK - 6'' Kenwood M1632A 3 Way
    Rear SPK - 6" Kenwood M1632A 3 Way
    AMP- None
    S/w - None

    As OEM HU have low power of 30x4. Continious handling power of speakers is 35 watt
    so no abnormal load on speakers.

    At the volume 8-9 I get every details of track. Low frequency is also impressive

    Getting live effect of every song. In case of Instrumental track
    getting great fidility. As the orchestra is being played inside of car
    Total cost Rs.4800 with installation.

    I beleive that car ICE is for entertainment for its owner only.
    Not for public. Coz public doesn't contribute the expenditure when I make expenditure
    for ICE,ing of my car. So no additional amp & subwoofers.

    I did it too..

    After going through thousands of posts and numerous days of anticipation finally my new ride got ICE'd.

    Vehicle Name: Fiat Grande Punto 2012
    Vehicle Variant: 90HP
    Head Unit : Stock (just to retain the Blue&Me and overall aesthetics of the dashboard. Though scrolling through USB MP3 tracks is a ROYAL PAIN while driving)
    Front Speakers : Focal Polyglass 165VB components (70W x 2) (amped via Hertz HE4)
    Rear Speakers : Focal Access 165CA1 (60W x 2) (amped via stock HU)
    Amplifier : Hertz HE4 (70W x 2 (4ohm) + 200W x 1 (4ohm)) (below front passenger seat)
    SubWoofer : Pioneer TS-WX303 (250RMS, bass reflex ported) (amped via Hertz HE4)
    Damping: Bass FX (all doors)
    Wiring : Sosche
    No wiring has been cut, all PnP adapters :D
    Overall cost : 60k

    Will I suggest the same to other Punto owners?? Read my notes to make a better informed decision.

    Notes :
    -- Sounds great and its very LOUD. Usual listening volume is at 5-6. Can't go beyond 18(max is 40 on stock HU) while sitting inside the car :D :D
    -- Trust Focal to reproduce great audiophile quality sound, in your car. However if the same setup went into a SUV, it would really shine.
    -- The pioneer woofer can really work out the lowest frequencies very well.
    -- Focal access coax at the rear shocked me no ends by giving a SOLID output while powered directly by the stock HU. To get better overall soundstage I have kept the fader at +3~4 for rear.

    Upgrades planned :
    Nothing. Will do some SineWave tuning after a month of running the setup.

    congratulations on the setup, the cost is very steep for the equipment used though.

    Also note the gain setting you are running is very high(above 90%), keep the volume at 32 and then set the gains, the way it is tuned right now it(your equipment) wont make it till the sinewave tuning session.
