Depends on how much you want to spend. No harm in retaining it.

Since your sub is a DVC, you can drive it off the Sony amplifier utilizing all the channels. Get the new amplifier to drive the components (and co-axials if you're planning on a 4 channel amplifier).

I think all your options have been made clear to you.

Pio 6950 (8k), GTO607 (about 6.2k), decent 4 Channel amp (7-8k), Co-axials (3-4k), wiring and install (2-2.5k)

You're ready to spend over 27k already and you're stretching your budget

If you still want to spend more than this, spend it on amp upgrade (75.4 for about 12k) or sub upgrade (about 4.5k + 1.5k for enclosure). Sell the Sony amp and the Pio sub and have a rocking new amplifier and sub

But please don't worry about the rear fill, I think that has been answered a couple of times already.

P.S: You can sell items in the Market section here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian-car-market/
why are we not concerned about wiring ? Wiring and install at 2.5k, I doubt unless local kits are used.

I agree JK, but I considered the discounts to cover up the rest of the wiring cost. (Most of that was approximation)

Thanks for indicating that!

I said 6200 if the sub is a DVC and the 60.4 if the sub is a SVC now why would I say that becuase....

if the sub is a DVC then the 555 amp can be used to amp the sub (both voice coils) and in this case the 6200 at 7K is a better deal as it can power 4 speakers (front and rear).

However if the sub is a SVC and the you can only use 2 channels of the 555 to power the sub then the other 2 channels of the 555 can power the rear 6x9 and you dont need a 4 ch amp any more just a 2 channel one (hence the 60.2) to power the front.

Capiche?

I knew it would not be a mistake, but I was a little confused since there was no mentioning of components in the second.

Very good pricing. As long as they can take it back in the event of any problem, no harm in going for it.

Raghu, having components on rear doors does not mean he HAS to drive sitting in the back seat.

@Vista2Swift was asking whether it is not preferable to uncompromisingly spend the extra 2K on components in rear instead of coaxials. He will anyway have components in the front - his concern is rear seat sound quality / experience, independent of whether he sits there or not.

Guys like I said b4 I am on budget of 20K thats why I am keeping my Pio Sub & the Sony amp to power the sub.

But I will definitely keep in mind the option of upgrading the Sub & Sony amp when I have more money

Thanks a lot for the advice guys. I'll will definitely get back after I install my ICE (hopefully next weekend..), on how it sounds.


P.S - Sorry Raghu !!! Didn't mean to hijack anything

Guys i need your help.
I am planning to buy a system and had been to car shringar in bangalore which is in commissariat road near lifestyle. Here are the details:

Pioneer HU 7950 = 9K without bill & warranty & 15K with B&w.
Pioneer HU 5950=5300 "" & 9500 " "
Pioneer rear speakers 300W with bill & warranty = 2750
Pioneer front 4" speakers 100W = 1000
Plank = 650
Fitting charges=300
wiring harness=250
Sony Xplod 4 channel 500W amp=4.5K
Blaupunkt 4 channel 800W amp=6K
Pioneer Sub woofer 800w=3750
Sub woofer box=900
RC cable(2 Nos)=500
Fitting =300 for subwoofer.

My budget is 20K
and i can get Pioneer 5950(without B&W), rear & front speakers, Blaupunkt amp, pioneer subwoofer, SW box, plank and fitting.

Any users bought units from Car shringar? if yes howz product quality?
Do you guys think for Pio 5950 or 7950, difference shd be whopping 4K to 6K if we dont opt for bill & warranty?

Any other trusted shops in bangalore?
How are headunits from JVC? I find them quite VFM.

Please advice.

JBL 6" coaxials for rear doors CS2165
JBL 60.4 4 channel amp
JBL 300.1 mono block amp
JBL 12" CS1204T bass tube in the boot

Now I hear a slight hissing in the speakers what would be the problem?
I am getting this hissing with CD, MP3 CD, Ipod, but the hissing is very little only, is it normal to get this hissing?
I tried pausing a track and increasing the volume - i hear the hissing.

GURUs help me.

Check the treble settings, it could be too high. Secondly, also check if the wires have gotten loose. Thats all i can say, the gurus will come along and give their inputs.
