my budget is around 30 K and i've already got 2 old pio 10'' subs.

ok then go for pioneer hu 6850 (10k) one 4 channel pioneer amp (6-7k) get 2 pair componet jbl 607 (6-7k) and a mono amp or a another 4 channel for the sub.

U said u have 2 10 inches subs which model it is , please tell the model no also....

First install the 10 inches if ur saitisfied then keep them or change to 12 inchs later. no need 4 subs man it will be waste of effort....

Yup... Stick to your two 10's//... they should prove more than adequate...

More importantly.. What kind of sound do you like and what kind of music do you listen to??

That 10inchers will give you nice tight bass! No need to change it unless you are very unhappy with it. Getting a nice monoblock will be good but it will overshoot your budget. So stick with two 4 channel amps. Get a set of 6" component speakers for the front and a pair of co-axial speakers for the rear.

You can use 1 amp to power both the subs and the other to power the speakers.

Make sure you get nice cables to go with the setup and find a nice installer to do the setup.

And Enjoy the sound man!

30K and you got the subwoofers. hmm..

You can get a nice HU with 3 preouts for 9K (Blaupunkt, Sony ot Pioneer), then you will need 5-6 ch. of power for the speakers. Like Dr. RSJ said the 6100 and 504 amps are about the cheapest amps you can use to do this. Bridge the 504 and it would drive the 10" woofers. That leaves 9K for speakers and interconnects.

I am not sure what fits in a Dicor. Basic Component speakers (4-6") run about 4-6K per pair and you can get a pair of Coax for the rear for about 2.5-4K per pair (4-6"). You will need some money for the interconnects and install. Since you have 2 amps and will need 3 pairs of interconects I would buget about 5K for the interconnects and the install.

I know this is pushing your budget a bit higher than you requested but that is a speciality of the ICE Forum! ;-)

hey all you guys
THANKS A LOT for your precious advice.
i really liked that so many BHPians are here to help.
OK i can push my budget to 40K.
Here in Ludhiana Pio availablity is an issue (as 100% stuff is grey and this scares hell out of me. Have you seen Pio VCD Player. if no i have.) but sony and jvc (most commonly available HU after Pio) situation is a lot better.
i am not that much satisfied with 10''ers cause they are not that powerful(piots-w255c). so i'll go with 2 12'' setup(pio sony or jbl pls tell me ).
here is the componets i am getting with their price
HU JVC-KDLHX555 (10k)touch screen , PIO DEH-P8650 16K DEH-P4850 5.6K AND SONY CDX-GT700D 9K and all rest are out of my reach.
Amp some alpine 705 model 3k ( fake i am sure bout that) rest on order.

speakers all will be jbl and they have to bought from chandigarh.
and subs sony 12'' xplode for 3k and pio 306 dvc for 3.3k
all items from grey market here if you ask for bill they will concider you a fool.

and i listen to Hip-hop, punjabi pop and punjabi remix and Nusrat Fathe ali khan ( i love his songs) and i am bass freak and i can install whole sys myself ( using my elecotrincs engg skills) no problem with that .
and i am very happy with DICOR. i have changed my driving style a lot after i sold my cielo ( with free flow intake and muffler). ya i find dicor slow but it not that bad as people say. i find DICOR good for city too no problem in that. I AM LOVING EVERY MOMENT IN MY NEW DICOR

LBM, the door panels in my Dicor could only take 5 1/4" speakers, both front and back. They were going to cut the panels to fit in 6.5 and showed me a sample which looked horrible. I stayed with the 5.25", components for front and co-ax for rear.

Thats is, if Tata havent changed Dicor door panels since Oct2005...
