the delivery story... a picture book : Car getting out of showrrom for RTO registration. I spent 2 days in showroom and made sure i get things done under my supervision. Waiting for inspection.... was a lovely drive of 10+km from showroom and I thank SA to let me drive omg... just in love with curves! Post inspection drove it back to showroom as delivery was scheduled for next day and bro and Jiju were coming from Pune to Kolhapur 230km to acompany me for the delivery ... :sad1 Now post delivery, drove 230km to Pune from Kolhapur for Pooja with parents. After dinner at 11.30, left for a ride, first time behind sterring alone in Linea. went to see friends, and went for a drive.... odo showing 290km at 2.30am. Next morning at Carax, Pune for ICE.... Kenwood KDC-U4549 HU : • System Q EX (Preset & Manual Sound Control with 3 bands parametric EQ) • Bass Boost, Maximum Output Power : 50W x 4 (MOSFET Power IC) • Front AUX Input, 3 Preout (2.5V), Subwoofer Level Adjustable • System E's+ (Built-in HPF & LPF) This detected my 16gb jump drive easily and remote is also easy to operate. The bluetooth ready HU can connect to phones with an external adaptor. Grrrr, OK! Helix B 6X co-axials for rear door and Helix B62C Dark Blue componants in front doors. installer said listen to this without amp, its more than adequate to make you think again do I really need amp and bass tube? He also said this is good no doubt, but a 4 channel amp can make this blast without basstube as Helix can sound better with an amp! point noted and added in checklist! ::V did you notice helix forged on the dome.... sexy 1" silk dome tweeters.... Germans know how to play it loud, n still keep the wow factor alive! hte installer had to take the cover out and use fevi Quick to fix it at the tiny place of tweeter. finally done with assembly. havent uploaded any final assembly pic as it doesn't show anything, may be I can upload the display pic of the 1 din player! Cost : 22k came to 18k after discount. Damping : not at this point, would see in phase II ( 4 channel 300w amp ) or phase III ( 12" 300w sub ) feedback : out of infinity, Helix, JBL, Boston, Rockford and Blau that I chose for comparison, I liked the combination and completeness of sound produced by Helix most. Without amp, the comps and co axe make me feel the vibration in seat and door panel and thats pretty unexpected as I was under impression that to my taste, I would be Ok only after I setup an amp and sub. I had my fev trance music with me... 'Dash Berlin' 10 tracks of world's #8 DJ, 320 bits and size 20mb each. Oh man, that sounds awesome and brought a smile on my face... afterall thats what is important, when you play your setup for first time... a smile, right? want rear co axials to produce only bass and from comps also to supress high freq, thinking to set hi freq to +2 only. The HU has many controls that would including Subwoofer Level Adjustament, System E's+ (Built-in HPF & LPF) that I need to try to my taste. would write in few hours/days once I get used to the controls and set the HU settings to the expectations.
