I'd upgrade the speakers to the Thx/Thc series.

hello gurus
I am a noobie out here and looking for an ice setup for my recently bought Swift
My budget is around 15k, I listen mostly to rock, some pop, instrumental and some regional music. I dont want loud thumping music, SQ is what I'm looking for.
One more point I'd like clarity on: may not be immediately but in the near future I'd like to go for amp and sub woofer also..so please suggest me a setup and a place in Bangalore for getting it done..

Default Need Advice on the right Sub and Amp for my Swift

Note from the Support Staff: Thread merged with existing.
Hi All,

I am new to this forum (Joined today) and i am very impressed with what i have seen so far. The quality of advice to some of the questions i went through encouraged me to start off with a question. I apologize if this is a repeat question. But before i ask my question, I want to introduce myself. My alias is "clonedintelligence", I am a Mechanical Engineer from Bangalore and automobiles have been a passion for a long long time.

Getting to the the question I had: I have a Suzuki Swift Vxi. Back when I bought it, i got pioneer speakers fitted. Unfortunately, i don't have the specs at hand, but i know that they are the 420 Watt 3-way?? speakers at the rear. the HU is the sony explod F5510 series (i regret having bought it). I now want to add a good sub-woofer and an amplifier to go with. My budget at the moment is 20K and i can stretch upto 30K. I was looking at the JBL GTO series for the Amp, but considering it will go into the rear of a Swift plus the fact that i need a sub-woofer also, i am not sure if it will be a very practical choice because it will take the entire luggage space.

So, what I would really like to know is the options that i have in terms of the size and make of the Sub and also the make and rating for the amp and Sub. In fact, feel free to suggest anything that falls within my budget and that will go well with the small sized car that Swift is. Thank You.

Amplifier will not take up much space. It can just be mounted on the seatback.
You most probably have the ts6971 or one from that series from pioneer. They are good for their price.
Your budget is very good for just one amp and speakers.
I would suggest you get a 12" sub from jbl/ground zero. In case you want something cheaper even pio is good. Get a good mono amp for your sub and a good 2 channel amp for your front speakers. If you don't have a good pair of components already for your front, get a pair from jbl/IA/blaupunkt/alpine etc.

Listen to the brands before you make any purchase. Also, look at the rms ratings and not the peak ratings.

In 2 channel amps take a look at jbl/blaupunkt/kenwood IMO. Avoid sony at all costs pls.
For mono amps, I feel the jbl range is overpriced. Look at blaupunkt/pio for better watt/rupee ratio.

You can also go for the gto 75.4 which is the BEST amp in its price range. There is no competition for this amp at this price. It will be very good, but ensure you get a single coil sub for this amp so that you can use 2 channels for the speakers.

I am giving you approximate prices for some combinations :

JBL GTO301.1 12500 with b/w approx 300w rms at 2 ohms
Blau tha1400 15500 with b/w ( 650@2ohm ) 11000 without b/w
pio 510 10000 without b/w 500@2ohm
sony ( don't remember the model number ) 12000 with b/w 500@2ohm

GTO75.4 12000 with b/w ( 8200 without b/w ) 104x4, 284x2 ( 4 ohms )

subs :

JBL gt4 : 2800 without b/w 4000 with b/w
gt5 : 5000 with b/w
pio 307DVC : 2900 ( You need a mono amp for this. On a 4 channel amp you will be using all channels just for this sub )
Sony : 2500 ( AVOID )
GZ ( don't remember model number ) 400w(SVC) rms approx 5500 ( with b/w )

You can go for even better subs, but I think since you are starting out these should suffice. Listen before making a purchase. Also, do not buy something just because it is recommended by someone on the forum. Listen to it. You may like the sony one better even though I think it is avoidable.

In the end, it's about your preferences

I thought about fixing the amp on the back of the rear seat, but i was told that amp tend to heat up(i am not sure if i should be too concerned about the heat generated), do you think its OK to mount it on the seatback? Will it hamper its performance in any way?

1. an amp mounted on the back of the rear seat will have plently of ari and will not heat up (not if the amp is funtioning normally).
2. if you want to leave your existing wiring alone and just add some bass a mono+sub is a good idea. I would get a 4 ch. amp like the 75.4 mentioned above if I was upgrading my front speakers (either now or at a later date). Good speakers really shine with a good amp.
3. Since you can strech your budget I would consider using part of that strech on some damping or better still a pair of component speakers for the front (I dont see you mentioning having any front speakers).

Budget: JBL 75.4 12K, JBL GT5 in a sealed box 5K, front components 6K, damping front doors and rear hatch 6K. wires and install 3K. I know this is a bit more than your max budget but I believe it is well worth it.

If 30K is the absolute max try getting the JBL CS series components (that will save you 1-2K) for the front and drop the rear hatch damping (that will save you another 2K).
