Re: Advice: ICE upgrade in stages
Excellent information on this thread, thanks all for sharing your inputs. Iím in the same boat (choosing the right speaker package for my Fortuner) and am confused about the setup to pick up. Need help
Music preference: I listen to new Bollywood songs, some English, Punjabi and Gazals etc. I need the music to be clear and with a tight bass but not too boomy which gets out of the car for others to listen or show off. The music should not be tiresome.
Setup needed: I will retain the HU, need help with Front components, Rear coaxial or components, Sub and amps for speakers, Will use dampening (Dampmat or whatever the group recommends). Sub should be able to fit the boot of Fortuner
Budget: INR 60,000 (+/- 15%)
Iíve been visiting dealers across NCR and everyone has given me a different setup and none have been able to give me an audition. Hence want to finalize some configuration before I finally go to a dealer to get it installed.
Iíve been given the following options till now by the dealers and am thoroughly confused:
Option 1: Front Comps: RF Punch PS16-S; Rear Coax: RF Punch P165; Amp: RF Prime R300X4 & Sub: RF Punch P1S4-12. Power the front comps & the sub by the Amp and rear coaxials by the HU.
1) Will Rockford will be good enough for my type of music budget? What mix match should I do with this setup?
2) Have heard conflicting views on Components in the rear vs coaxials. Hence which is the best option
3) Will splitting the amp and adding a mono also significant improve the quality, if yes then which one?
4) For the front comps it is worth going up to the power series (RF T1675-S) for the jump in music clarity : Price difference between PS16-S & T1675-S is INR 14K
Option 2: Front Speakers: Rainbow EL-C5.2 ; 4 Channel amp: PHD 4060 & Subwoofer: Rainbow DL-S12
This option given has no rear speakers (stay with stock)
Option 3 : Front speakers : Pioneer TS-D1720C, Rear Coax: RF Punch P165, Amp : Pioneer GMA4604 (4-Channel Bridgeable Amplifier with Bass Boost Volume Control) and Sub : Pioneer 30 cm Shallow-Mount IMPP Component Subwoofer
Option 4 : Front Speakers: Hertz HiEnergy HSK 165XL ; Rear Comp : HSK 165; 4 Channel amp: Hertz HCP 4 . This option given was without the subwoofer
Am thoroughly confused hence seeking help
Appreciate the time taken by you in reading long post and thanks in anticipation of guiding a newbie like me on choosing the best setup
