GTA 250 is barely enough to move the sub. Will have to change the amp soon too.
It was owned by another BHPian here. As it was a very good deal and also very nicely looked after stuff, I opted for it. I won't suggest you to use this kinda amps for subs.
Better to get some other amp.

I dunno about 280. I think it should be the newer lineup from Blaupunkt.

New Swift ICEd

Rear Ovals: Infinity Reference 9623i

Front speakers: Infinity Reference 6012

HU: Pioneer 2950

Installation was done by the delaer i Bought it from.
Haven't installed an amp as the volumes will be never more than 20-25 % so I suppose even the low power amps on the HU should not clip or distort

4.2 K for the HU w/o bill
~14K for the speakers....don't remember the breakup between the front and the rears though

Dude is correct! You may not have realised it but you're the first team-BHPian to have laid his hands on the new Infinity Reference oval speakers. I'm surprised!! So Chennai beat the rest of the Indian TBHPians to it!

(Technically, i was the first team-BHPian to have installed the 9623i in the verna, but i don't count. I didn't pay.)

Congratulations!!

You are right..I never realised it....
What I did notice however was the more than noticeably better soundstaging and the clarity of the highs and picking it up was a no-brainer

BTW what's your take on this:

Is this assumption correct?

It is not a totally correct statement. With an amplifier you will find greater control over the sound and a marked improvement.
However thsoe speakers are sensitive and the HU will do a decent job at low volumes. If truly your volume is low, then it's ok. Better to have the HU amp at lower volumes than a bad amplifier.

Gee..thanks....

now assuming I go ahead with an amp install ( A 4 channel I presume)
what would be a good option to pick, given the fact that even after the amp, the volumes will stay fairly low, except maybe 50% for very short durations

Though I like my music loud, the lady of the house (It's her car) can't tolerate loud music and flashy stuff.... In fact the Pioneer 2950 was her idea since this was the least garish HU in the entire Pioneer range

The amplifier is all sound, no show. Not even seen. if you wish to hide it from your wife, you can do so quite easily.
Many men here have either convinced their wives that there is no amplifier, or that it is part of the deck, or that it costs Rs.500/-

Be careful when you buy an amplifier for these speakers. I repeat, they are sensitive and it is better to have NO amplifier than a bad one. Please do not misunderstand me, If your volume is truly low and you never plan to raise it, then you may not really need that amplifier.

But the Pioneer 2950 is a low end HU and you will definitely find much better quality of you amplify the front and rear speakers. Maybe you can do so at some later date. Keep about 8000-10000 for this purchase.

I think a JBL CS60.4 Amp (under 9K) or a Pioneer 6200 Amp (under 8K) will fit your bill.

Get the install done fast, and if your wife notices it (at all), you can always tell her it is part of the package with the speakers (if you get the JBL Amp) or part of the HU (if you pick up the Pio). As Sam said, this goes with the territory
