Default Suggestions for Car audio system

Hi folks,

Would need your expert advise on setting up my in car audio system.
As of now, I have the following components fitted,
1. Pioneer DEH -P5750 Head unit
2. 4 inch coaxial Pioneer TS-E1076 in the front
3. 6.5 inch coaxial Pioneer TS-E1695 in the rear

I would need to add an amp and a subwoofer to this setup. Have almost finalized on the Pioneer 6100F 4 channel bridgeable amp.
I am thinking of driving the sub with 2 channels and the rear speakers with the other 2 channels. The front speakers could be driven using the head units power source.

As far as the sub is concerned, i have no idea as to which one to go for. Your suggestions on this are gladly welcome
Would also like to know the best way to wire all this up and other things i should look out for. Would I need to replace the front coaxials with a set of components?
Is it better to get the amp from Dubai? I hope there are not many fake ones going around here.

The car would most probably be a Swift/Zen.

Thanks.

connect the front with the amp and the rear ones with the head unit as for sub 2 channel briged will be good enough for a sweet sound

You can replace the front coaxials with components if you want to lift the sound stage. The Swift can take the largest components in the market (6.5 inch).

I will let the experts commenton the amp.

LBM is right. fronts will benefit more from the amp. and yes components wil help but at a cost.

Sub - max of 5k
