Sorry but I feel like this is a pretty poor install especially considering the cost.

This is mine.

Given that this just stage one of install. It was bound to look that way. I don't see a difference between your amp rack and mine. Cables seems little off in my setup

Also in your install I see that RCA cables aren't connected to the amp and you seem to have shared a pic without any connections

Is this better for you?



Never meant to criticise your install but for paying a professional installer I thought you could've done a better install yourself.

I never took your post as criticism. I did the install myself and took help from friend that's all. This was not a professional installation. I have some work pending which I will complete in 2-3 weeks time. Thanks for sharing the pic. It will help me lot. I intend to use miles connectors for all connections so that it will be plug and play.

As of now RCA cables I built myself are too long and have to make another set of exact length. I was too tired to make the setup tidy.

The sub in 1 cubic feet box kept in the boot was taking space by a large extent and wanted to install it in the stock location which is behind the rear right panel but the space there is limited and would not take a 12" sub, I was searching for other options and came across a post here where a member had installed the sub inside the spare wheel well.

Decided to install the sub in the same space. It was not going to be easy as the box had to be in round shape and i personally do not like using MDF and wanted try something out of plywood. Designed the sub box in octagonal shape in CAD and got it cut accordingly.The bottom and top of the sub are round and sides are octagonal with 45degree chamfered edges. After calculating turns out the space is exactly 0.95cubic feet which is tad small than the specification by Helix which was fine.

Now comes the part where i had to make sure the sub sits flush inside the wheel well and the top grill is flush with the boot floor,went ahead and cut a circle in the boot panel so that the grill is flush with it. It was a lot of back and forth and took close to 2 days to complete it. I am happy with the job he has done. The sub box is super heavy thanks to 18mm plywood used. It can be removed to get the spare wheel out but needs a lot of arm power which was ok with me. I have used speakon connector on the bottom of the sub

Here are a few pics





























The amp you see in the boot isn't mine. It's a friend' amp, my mosconi was loaned to another friend to test his setup.


The pods on the dash were a little to big and wanted to check if there is a possibility of getting smaller ones. I got smaller pods manufactured in locally and got them anodized to matte black and they look sweet, here are the pics of the same









The second set is for a friend.








Finally got the Audible Physics Brahmas installed in the car, it was a long wait but worth it. The Brahmas pump out a lot more low/Midbass than vectors. They still need around 40 hours more to break in though. Tuned the car last evening and ohh boy i was blown out by the details and the low/mid bass the Brahmas put out. Took help of a friend do a blind test with the sub on and off and it was very hard to differentiate and I failed. I thought I was wrong and asked another friend to do the same as and he too failed the test . I freakin love the quality of the Brahmas and the output it gives for the price.








Here are the complete technical specifications of the new Midbass
