Hey dude,
Back from the sun and sea!? How was it?
Yeah funds are always tight, but when an MS-8 is being shifted for a great price Iím there ;-) I am really wishing I didnít care about music this much but being a DJ in my spare time lol, itís inevitable!!
Thanks for the comment on the spoiler Ė Iím really chuffed with it and Iím so glad I didnít opt for the black / silver combo as that would have been, for me personally, just money thrown down the drain with black shark fin, black mirror caps, M sport bumper with black diffuser etc etc...........£40 for a clean finish and I couldnít be happier!!

Re: W7 dude, When I heard it in your car.. it was immense, handles so much power and delivers such deep line bass I thought fudge, I need this in my life, but the price tag it comes it, I couldnít justify myself to spend that much on a sub personally as I need to keep to budget! So far Iím doing pretty good and want it to remain this way

Iím amidst buying Jehnerts underseats which is more expensive than a 3 way component kit itself from the likes of HERTZ so need to spend carefully and wisely!! Now not sure what 2 way components to go for as I donít want to spend much on that Ė My understanding is I can do with mid-range components and not have to spend crazy on Ďtop of the rangeí ones as I have a processor / DSP that will help get the best out of mediocre ones. Any comps IRO of £150 should allow for semi-decent ones and not Focals this time round LOL.

Been offered a W7 10 sub / Box for a crazy deal from someone we both know ;-) but Iím not sure what boot install Iím going for as part of my 2nd stage upgrade so donít want to buy them and find I decide to do something different a little later.

Anyways, I donít think Iíll going to Players but will be to the one after that which is more local.. Westside is it called? Will u also be going?

It's a 10w7 dude. In a fully flushed box which will go across the boot ... I'm just not sure if a 10" will be enough even though ive heard it briefly before. The SWS-8s were sure not enough and I need deep bass for hip hop / rnb... What do u think Sam?

Ive NO idea which amp And how many I'd need to make my entire set up work... Maybe 4 Chanel for the fronts and a mono for the sub?!

Am looking into a used Alpine PDx 4.100 but just not sure.. Ive dropped the idea of jehnerts xe200 if I am going for a boot install as I thnk they will be an overkill and am now seeing what 3-way comps are out there.. Decent ones for about upto £250...

Sumil, this looks very nice man, excellent set up and that 10w7 sounds deep - attracted a lot of people! I was amazed what it can handle LOL...

The process of deciding my components, the sub, the install etc etc is actually the most fun part as a lot of you will agree . For knowledge purpose.. does anyone know if it's possible to ammend a 10" box like the one you have Sumil, to fit 12" sub without losing build quality? I.e. Could I take a 10" box and get a pro to make it bigger for a 12" sub? If so, 1 x 12w7 would be ideal for me however, the prices of these subs are ridiculous @ brand new / RRP! They are amazing for what they are but somewhere deep down I still can't justify spending so much on 1 sub RRP lol.

Whilst I've agreed to buy a 10w7 off a friend for a good price (thanks, you know who you are ) my only worry is if one 10w7 isn't enough, what am I going to do after that in an install like Sumil's?? Initially, was opting for the Jehnerts XE200 for underseats as some of you may know but after talking to a few people it was apparent that may be an overkill with a sub in the boot so I'm back to looking for a 3 way comp set. The one I've seen and heard are the HERTZ ESK 163L around £220 which seems a decent price and it won't get much better than that for that price range..... However, which other 3 way components would be recommended for around £250 - £300 as I've not found much else?!

I have an uncle in the US so could potentially get something through him components wise - in this way I could also get TECHNICS's harness in the same package and avoid separate duty costs. Do you guys know If I would have to pay stamp / tax on items even if it's being sent via family across the pond!?

This back and forth is almost coming to an end so bear with me folks

dude the pics i sent you yday you can see the box is slightly oversized! BUT it is measured perfectly for an E92 as you still have access to your "sparewheel" tray

whichever size you go for, a 10", 12" etc you are still limited to the size of the box if you want/need access to that "underseat tray" thats why i had the box made as big as i could to accomodate for this

so i am sure if you bought a 10" and then decided you wanted a 12 it could be cut to fit! just depends on how you want it dude! its all on your preference

p.s. i think the hertz is great value for the price and as we mentioned yday, the jenherts although very tasty cant compare to a W7 if you are being offered one!

also heard good things about the focal 2 ways! check em out!

Yeah I’ll still consider the box man, thank you.. hoping to come to Players this wknd and we can catch up then.. oh re: accessing the folding part of the boot, yes true I didn’t think of that. I’ll think I’ll take more time to think through things than to go balls deep in something and back track later loll. I had focal, SWS-8s etc etc in my previous E90 and in hindsight I found the focals a bit too bright plus for what they are (2 way) for £200, I’m more tempted to try something different now so no go with focals unless absolutely necessary LOLLL.

I may end up doing something totally different lollll.. who knows. Fun times!!

If I can make it to Players, wanna go up again like last time we did to Gaydon or you got some other plans?

Very tempting mate.
It is 3ohms. Isn't it?

Awbimmer, can you kindly pm me what sort of price have you been offered for a used one (thinking form cost effectiveness point of view)?

Thanks.

it is indeed mate, at 3ohms the amp is stable for 900wrms! the 10W7 max max peak is apparently 700-750 (near danger zone)

but they can handle more! they take an absolute beating!
