Default Kenwood KVT-839DVD

I got a query to anyone and everyone here.
I want info on how this system is Kenwood KVT-839DVD .
Is it or not and also are there any other options which my friend can go in for?
Could you tell me the approximate pricing of the system.
The link for the system is here.

Ok what do you say about a pair of 6x9, Sub and amplifier. I suppose that would be 1K more costly but what is you opinion about the combination.
Also How much would a Amp cost for front 6" Components and Sub. Is there any amp which can drive all speakers and a Sub also?

You stay in Bangalore;
You seem to have purchased gear from JBL.
Best is, you take your car to the JBL store / installer & ask him to help. I am sure they will be more than happy to oblige.

For the Bass. Buy a JBl boom box & keep in your boot. It can be removed when luguage has to be put in. So no problem.

i too have an alto. i also have GTO 937 in the rear and a sub in a ported enclosure which eats up all the space. but in daily city driving where i dont require to carry the luggage i enjoy the music with the sub. when i want to go for outing with the luggage i detach the sub and only listen to the GTO 937 from the rear.
IMO why to put the sub in the spare wheel slot where it will not sound gud?
better listen to quality music for max time(city) and wihout sub (outings) than to listen to not so quality music from the sub in the spare wheel.
Also other issues like damping and fabrication will creep in.

Amit i know a spare wheel sub cannot sound good.I dont use my car daily but only in the weekend with family.invariably i will have luggage in the boot.And fabricating and damping i dont have any problem.
(I can do carpentry,plumbing,electronics,some lathe work i am a true DIY person isn't it?)

Gurus,

I have the following information researched for Audio in my Swift.

Blaupunkt HU - St Louis MP56
F.Speakers -Components - Blau. THc 662
R.Speakes- Coaxial - Blau. GTx 663
Total Cost Including installation - 24140/- with b&w.

The guy says no spacers would be required however he will confirm that with the installer.

Friends is this quote appropriate. Any other better combination suggestion would also be appreciated.
