We're back in business albeit after a major gap. Tons of things changed in life and something that I never thought happened. ICE took a back seat
I have been collecting some really good equipment for some time now that were supposed to go in the ICE-Land v4.0 but that project will need to take a seat even further back now for the time being due to lack of time and the fact the vehicle for 4.0 is not a regularly used one.
The Verna setup had been going strong. It was rocking a Alpine ICS X8 + Audison Voce Coaxial off a Mosconi AS65.2 and a pair of Morel Ultimo SC off the Zapco ST-1500XM
The car will soon be retired to make way for a petrol car for local use and already things are in motion for it but more on that when the time is right.
For now it's time to ICE a 2015 Maruti Suzuki Ertiga ZDi
Not the best looking vehicle nor something with the sexy quotient attached to it but I did realize some really ICE friendly parts of it. Mostly the wide and deep dash and the pillars that widen up at the bottom. Not to mention the tons of space once you remove the last row of seats.
This is the view from the driving seat. Lot of potential for a good SQ front stage in this car.
The major drawback is the build quality so will be turning to damping it as properly as possible. I do not believe in damping without need now so will try to apply it only where necessary to get the best acoustics and minimum noise.
The electricals are not too strong unlike the Verna. I will be limiting the setup to two amplifier or maximum three. Big 3 upgrade is also on the cards so that should help as well.
I will also be taking the chance to assist a close friend in introducing some new products in the market and I believe these are worth waiting for so please stay tuned for that.
Due to limitation of time, I expect this setup to take some time to come to the intended configuration so kindly bear with the bouts of absence in between. I will be trying to extract the maximum out of the equipment as I can and that will definitely need some time to be managed from work and other fronts.
I will update the thread with the equipment that is confirmed to go in the setup in the coming days
Thanks for reading folks. See ya soon
