Default please help on selecting a car audio! ! !

Hi guys,

First, I would like to thank everybody for posting there views/reviews about Chevrolet Aveo. I have finally booked my Chevrolet Aveo and is expected to be delivered by this Thursday. I need help in building my ICE. Aveo has a provision/box for
1. Tweeters on the A pillars.
2. Front speakers on the door.
3. Rear speakers at the Tray behind the rear seats. Pl Note: there is no provision for speakers in the rear doors.

My budget is around 20k for ICE with Single DIN and 25k for ICE with Double DIN.

I am a newbie and am confused in bringing the stuff... Guys, please help me out...

Funny. Double DIN is often cheaper than single DIN. If you dont need cassette use single DIN.

2 Single DIN option below.

Bass SPL option:
HU: Sony for 6K
Front and rear speakers: 6K (coax from JBL CS series)
Subs: 12" Pio 306C in box: 4K
Amp Sony 502: 5K
Install and wires: 2K
-----------------
6+6+4+5+2 = 23K

SQ option:
Blau HU: 8K (ipod compatible)
Front components: 5K
Rear Coax: 3.5K
Amp: Pio 6100 7K
Wires and install: 2K
------------------
8+5+3.5+7+2= 25.5K

In option one, I think Navin meant Sony504 and not the 502, just a typo.

Go for the pioneer amp, Iv heard good things about it. And my personal experience with sony's amp - they lack PUNCH. I own one only because I couldnt afford better.

LBM, i think you did not refer to his budget. Pioneer 944 costs 13k grey in mumbai but i feel if he has the budget of 13k then he might as well go in for the JBL GTO 75.4amp which is similarly priced. Its much better than the Pioneer 944.

agreed on both counts. the 504 is a typo. and the 6100 is a better amp but if you can afford the 2-3K estra.

13k is a good budget. what is this amp for.

what speakers you got. my guess is a better speaker might also be warranted.

My apologies LBM, it was my mistake. BTW, before a mod corrects you let me tell you that Bold letters are considered to be rude in T-BHP. Hope it will be of some help for you in the future .

Cheers

13K should be enough for an alpine 240.

why bold letters? typing with CAPS is not considered polite. The Alpine 240 sells for 11K but is a sweet amp. beautiful sound for the price and great for front and rear but I dont think it is beefy enough to wrestle a big sub.

It is not clear what you exactly want to achieve that will keep you happy for the next 2 years. Since you have not mentioned any speakers, I assume you want to have more bass with 13k as the budget. You can use the 444 on your speakers assuming you have speakers (there was this one bloke from Delhi who didn't!)

And you can splurge on a D510 M Pioneer monoblock if your 800W sub is a DVC...... And after 2 years you can save some money and come back to the forum so that we stick you a better sub and speakers too.
