So, I have 2 suggestions:
1. Eliminate the amp+sub, keeping the front comps. and rear coaxials.
2. Eliminate the amp +rear coaxials, keeping the front comps. and sub.
Option 1 sounds better for me.

OK...how would clearer and crisper sound effects be accomplished - Option 1 or 2?
Like I said, if need be, I could stretch my budget to 25K.

Since you drive alone, get a decent comp pair for the front (8k or so), a Sony 504 amp, and a 10" sub in sealed enclosure. Including install this should be manageable in your budget. And this will sound great in your Indica.

Worry about the rear pasengers when they start contributing to the ICE systems cost... Ask SK456, he used to have rear fill, now that he has front comps and a sub, he wants to sell his 6x9s cuz he doesnt use them anymore. So use the rear fill money for better components in the front.

In second option if you remove the amp how are u gonna drive your sub? The sub driven directly from HU will be a waste of money . In my opinion go for the Front comp and the rear coax. You can slowly upgrade later by adding the amp and the sub. Again I think Indica comes prewired for the speakers. So if you are not adding amp you dont need to spend on wires at the moment. you can use the existing wires or you can use the wires that come with the JBL speakers.

So Gunbir, you're suggesting that I keep the front comps, lose the rear coaxials, go for a Sony 504 amp. instead of the Pioneer 6200, and a sub.
Would I be able to get all of this, including the installation done for 25K?

What sub were you referring to? Is the Sony 504 different from the Sony 554ZR?

Sam, how much would I be looking at, for the GTO606Ce, with bill and warranty. I might be considering that, instead of the GTO607. What do you think?

You would have to look around. There was a good quantity sold before the 7series launch and some dealers will have stock. Even though the MSRP is 6000/- i expect you can get it for 5500/- or less.

Gotcha! Have you heard of Shreyas Motors at Milan Subway?
I've gotten to hear that the guy does a decent number of JBL installs and even has some on the demo board.

BTW, what is your suggestion on my set-up? Where can I possibly cut corners?

Yes, Shreyas is an authorised re-seller. There is a nice kid there called Hirav. Tell him you're my friend.

Kool man! Yeah, I was told to contact Hirav. Hell, it's good to know Sam Kapasi :-)
There are other places in the Santacruz-Milan Subway vicinity: Suraj Motors, Choksi Motors, FM Drive, DK Electronics.
What do you think about them guys?

That's one thing about this site, that there is never one definite answer to any question. You receive a multitude of suggestions from various fellow BHP'ians, leaving you in a totally confused state of mind, sort of where you initially started out :-)

According to Gunbir, there is no point in having rear coaxials fitted, since I drive alone, which makes total sense.
Then, on the other hand, there are suggestions to go with the front comps and rear coaxials for the present moment, and have the amp+sub fitted at a later date, which is also a thinker.

I think the gunbir has suggest the best option go for front componets and a sub in the boot as it will nearly complete ur system............but do add a amp to it.......

ok . get compos + sub + 4 channel amp + hu for now

later get the rear co-ax. simple. sony is cheaper, but pio is powerful i guess. If you can get the Pio. And spend some money for a good install + RCA.
