      The lows will become very prominent and you can feel the bass a lot more with a added sub.

      An active sub will have an inbuilt amplifier. It need not go via your existing amplifier. You've to use a Hi-Lo Converter to split the signals & feed one to your existing amp for the mid and highs (your components) and lows to your Active sub directly.

      Bridging will be required when you use a Passive subwoofer and connect it to your rear 2 channels of your existing amp. Bridging technically will combine left and right of your rear channels and use it a single channel with a boosted power output as required for your subwoofer.

      If you're going Active Sub you don't need another one. Another option, you can look at is get a passive sub, pull out the 2nd row coax off Amp and power it via stock Nippon HU and use the rear 2 channels bridged to power your sub.

      There are plenty of options if you can source from US.

      1) Kenwood Compact Sub

      2) Pioneer Compact Sub

      3) Rockford Fosgate Compact Sub

      4) JBL Underseat Sub

      BTW, what's ur budget ? And do you want only an Underseat sub only ? Will you be using your 3rd row always ? You can have a removable sub option with banana plugs in case if you want to use the 3rd row. That's another option and that's how I use it.

      Despite replacing the speaker if its happening means, it could be your amp. Did the installer check the amp. Can you interchange your channels in amp and see if the creaky sound appear on the other driver ?

      My XUV battery lasted 6 years. A few months ago I swapped it with my Pickup. Its working with pickup well.
      No re-learning required. Its pretty easy to do.
      Check Left pole or Right pole. Some cars have reversed (Safari is reversed).

      BTW how old is your XUV?

      When my car had shutdown 3 weeks back, the RSA mechanic had checked the battery and said it is all fine and nothing to worry with it.

      I'd be blessed if my car battery runs for 6 years too

      Guess it is about the usage pattern of the vehicle. I use it regularly except the weeks when I am in Kolkata. That happens for 2 weeks every other month. Other than that, the car runs for around 200km every week. I guess, that keeps the battery life going.

      Actually. My cars sit a lot. XUV has been sitting since past 2 months. Other than occasional 2km trip to keep oils circulating, its nothing.
      Generally my use is the worst for battery.

      Under body engine guard and visit to service center

      I did a quick 190km trip on Sunday to a nearby lake called Gudibenda lake. While the drive and meeting with friends was great - Laali had a little misadventure.

      Near the lake, the front right wheel found a muddy spot which it didn't want to leave. After some work, we managed to pull it out (details here : GearHeads India ), however, this damaged the underbody engine guard and rear two screws came loose.

      When I touched the highway - car wobbled like a snake on the road after crossing speeds like 120-130kmph. I felt it to be the mud, but there wasn't any likelihood for that to be the culprit. I drove like that to home and then some inspection in the evening to notice that underbody cover is hanging from one side. I thought it is damaged and needs a replacement. Felt sad for it - but then, things like these happen in an XUV owners' life.

      I took the car to service center the next day and had my favourite RM Shigli check it. He took the car inside. The mechanic Ajith, took the car up on ramp and saw that the guard is not damaged, and just the screws should do the job. He fixed in in 5 mins and went on to tighten other screws around the car.

      He was also told to look into air-lock and see if there are any error codes. He cleared the error codes first. Then went on to press the primming pump few times after loosening on scre. This was to ensure any air bubble comes out. After that - I was all set. Gate pass was issued and a QA person left me near the exit door. Zero money charged.

      The pic below shows the scratches the engine guard has taken on its own :

      I was also told by Ajith, the mechanic, that the front disc pads are completely gone and need a replacement. I asked if there will last till next service in 1k KM, he said yes, these will be fine. How do we tell if the disc breaks are good?

      Nice adventure.
      Wobbling like a snake (if it was that Violent) will not happen due to loose enging guard. I hope they have checked tie rods and suspension.
      Discs themselves have specified thickness (I think 25mm Min). I changed mine at 85k Kms.

      Wobbling can happen with the plastic guard hanging, as higher speed of 120-130 will have quite a bit of air drag and resistance.

      Visual inspection for any deep grooves and measuring the thickness if it is within the service limit. My XUV has clocked around 48K and still on first rotor and brake pads, thinking of getting the rotor measured during 50K service and change the brake pads though it still has lot of meat but better to change during 50K service for peace of mind.

      Thats what I have also done...bought a new Amaron 105D31R for XUV and old battery (in great shape) has gone into my Jeep. The new battery costed me 5.5 K with buy back of old battery which was 60 Ah, had to pay extra INR500 extra being not of the same Ah. XUV got the new battery and Jeep live once again.

      Absolutely. My Jeeps battery went kaput as I had to leave the Jeep standing for around 3 months with battery connected, unfortunately I missed the warranty replacement by just one month. For XUV I make sure that car runs few good kms if its standing continuous for 3-4 days keeps the health of battery in good shape.

      use a multimeter it should show 12.50 to 12.90 Volts and with engine running it should show around 14+ volts...it checks battery and alternator health. Apart from this you cant do much but keep the terminals clean.
