Default Finally ICE'ed my I10 Magna

I have been planning to ICE my car for ages now. One thing I was extremely clear was that sound clarity is of paramount importance. My budget was around 65K. The details of the setup are

Head Unit: Pioneer 8000 BT
Components: JBL 607c 4 nos on 4 doors
Rear Speakers: Pioneer TS2150 CoAxial Helmet Speakers
Sub Woofer: Pioneer TSF1000
Amplifier: JL Audio HD 900/5
Wiring Kit: JBL
TS 20 Tweeters
SubWoofer MDF Box
Rear Parcel Tray to host my CoAxial speakers.
BlueTooth Speaker to map my cellphone.

Installer: Shakir (S.S Electronics) Khairatabad. He is the best in the business in Hyderabad. Amazing knowledge of car audio setups. He basically eats, sleeps and dreams car audio setup.

Outcome: The setup has the right balance of bass, melody and plays the high and low notes extremely well. I prefer to listen to lots of soft film music, english pop, mild rock, Indipop. This setup is able to give me the right experience for any kind of music. Kudos to Shakir for this amazing setup. I am extremely thrilled and do plan to take this setup to any other car I buy in the future.

I am attaching some snaps for reference.

^^ Just one question, why did you decide to go with a speaker designed to be used as a center speaker in a 5.1 or such setup as the rear fills? I am referring to the "helmet" speakers.

I liked the deep punch and clarity from the helmets. The other thing which made me choose Helmets were the solid build quality. The TS20, helmets, subwoofer are all original japanese make. If folks are in Hyderabad, I can give a quick demo around the output of my setup. Appreciate all your feedback/comments.

Another question - you have opted for components for both doors, so why did you opt for another pair of tweeters?
I can be wrong, but from the image, it seems like the TS20 is directly firing towards the windshield - I am not sure this is the ideal position to help the imaging. I personally would have stayed away from the TS20, especially when I have fixed component speakers which have its own tweeters.

Lol! What kind of mix-n-match is that?

Why do you need 2150 and TSSS 20 (japanese) at first place when you have one of the good components already?

Remove these 2 and replace your Pioneer Sub to something else.. and you're all set.

^^ +1, for the the extra TS-20 tweeter units & the rear 2150s. I don't think they are adding anything to your setup.

As for the Pioneer sub, look for something else only if you are presently not satisfied is what I would say.

Firstly thanks a ton for your feedback. I had the TS20's and TS2150's from my earlier car and didnt want let go of them as I love the output. With regards to the sub, I am absolutely happy with the output and the sound quality. As informed earlier, I am planning to retain this setup and use it for another car I buy at a later point of time.
