      I have had my friends, my wife and myself carry a lots of stuff from USA.. things like Speakers, Amplifiers, DSP's, cables, installation accessories but till date have not paid a single penny as Customs duty for both new and used items bought from ebay/crutchfield and from people from Diyma.

      They mostly do not check anything that is inside a bag/suitcase majority of the time..

      Many Congratulations, hope you enjoy your setup for many moons.

      One newbie question - this is a passive system I believe (based on the crossovers shown beside the DSP), what role is the DSP playing in this equation currently when you have an aftermarket HU already. Any plans to go Fully Active at a later stage ?

      Hand carrying does not pose a big threat .. trust me. My friend carried a complete HT setup minus the Sub.. No worries. They dont make that serious issues when the quantity is just one, they mostly know if it is for personal use or for sale..

      Anyways lets not make OT discussions on somebody else's thread..

      You've been lucky is all I would say. There are many people on this very forum, who have gotten car audio/engine related parts from the US we shipped to them. And have not only paid Customs Duty in the airports in India, but also paid a penalty as well for non-declaration.

      A HU has a basic 13 band EQ, which doesn't allow you to do independent L&R EQ, Front/Rear/Sub EQ and a host of other things. In this setup most of the music will be streamed via the AMAS-BT module which will be 100 times better than streaming the same music content to the Pioneer HU via BT.

      The Pioneer HU acts a transport when someone wants to plug in a pen drive, more importantly, it serves as Navigation Device for Android/Apple devices.

      I'm sure you and your family/friends and me were lucky. I've read from various forums about people being questioned at paying penalty. Just have to keep fingers crossed while doing things like this.

      Thanks vineeth. Wanted to just stick with Black as it went well with the dash and the seats which are also black.

      As mclaren1885 mentioned in the above post, i'm currently streaming through the AMAS-BT module. Have created a playlist in my phone with all the music that i like. There is huge difference in SQ while playing through the HU vs through the AMAS-BT. Its still running on base tune and waiting for mclaren1885 to do his magic in the coming days. No plans for now to go Active but would want to listen to an active set up and then decide, may be later.
