drop the Pioneer speakers and defintely drop them tweeters your ears will thank you.

there are better options at the same price or a bit more I'd look at JBL, Blaupunkt's ODx or even Alpine.

You'd need about 6-7K for 2 pair of speakers that leave 7-8K for the HU.

ya, agree with navin saab. Look out for JBL GTO936 (7-Series). They cost around Rs4750 and got great bass. If lucky, you could also get some discount on that.

For head unit, pioneer 7750 is great. I am also using the same one.

Yes, you do need an amplifier for the subwoofer if you want to use it with 7750. As a matter of fact , you would be required to use the amp, irrespective of any head units avaliable in the market if u want to use a woofer.

Ya there are woofers with inbuilt amps, these are called Active subwoofers. Others which do not have a in built amp are called Passive woofers.

JBL has come out with a new Active Bass tube. This is basically a 12" inch subwoofer placed inside a tube with an inbuilt amp. Its costing aroung Rs 12000. But your budget is tight as that might not be an option.

I would suggest, that you get
Pio -7750 Head unit - Dont know the latest price
Sony 504- 4 channel amplifier (Rs 3500) app
Pioneer Single Coil Woofer- (Rs 3000)
Boom box- Rs 500
Wiring and labour would cost extra

This setup should come to 14 k app

Since i am suggesting sony 4 channel amp, you can use 2 channel to power the rear speakers and two channels to power the subwoofer.

the Sony 504 is about 5K yfor 3.5K you'll get the 502 which a 2 channel veriosn but you can use this amp for the Sub and use your HU for your front and rear speakers.

Not correct info. There was an evil looking 10" active tube, that has been discontinued.
Today we have just one new tube, it is passive, the CS1204T, with a GT-4 12 sub driver in it. This has replaced the CS1200T. The price is the same 6500/-

AMit you can take the GT4-12 tube and stick a bridged sony 502 on one end (not the driver end) and have an active tube. a bigger amp (like the blaupunkt PA275) will be even more fun.

Hi!
The GT-4 12 tube is called the CS1204T. Amit what navin is saying is that you can connect the Sony 502 to this tube and the result will be like an active tube.
If your budget permite you can connect a bigger amplifier like the PA275 and get better bass.

I think Navin will have bigger amp (PA275) soon and maybe a spare one too
