When you do find an awesome sounding speaker, you are mostly paying for the R&D, and then the parts...

i will defenately try to increase my budget and get myself component sys from jbl.

what do u guys suggest?

P.S. Is there any difference regarding the sound quality of pio 6850 and pio 5850, should i go for 6850 or going for 5850 could save my extra 1k which i can use for speakers.

My friends so far have all prefered JBL's CS series to Blaupunkt GTO series. These 2 are the only speakers i know of in the price range (3k per pair). Hence I'd suggest you listen to the JBL CS series along with some other options.

Nishant, yes they are the same in SQ. The 6850 has better graphics.

Nrajesh, yes the Swift can take 6.5" speakers all around..

sq will be the same but the 6850 will have a little more thant the 5850 have like

1) 7eq
2)aux in bulit in the hu

the aux in will cost u nearly 1k ifu buy it extra that also it will be a third party product if u buy the original pioneer aux it will cost u more than 4k. so i think u must go for 6850 which have a provision of expansion also......

There are similar examples in the audio industry. There are some speakers that are very basic, but sound decent. Then there are some that have a hell of a lot of hype associated with them, are built well, look the part, yet sound mediocre. And then you have some rare ones that have great parts AND sound phenominal....
1. you cant call fiberglass, Carbon fiber and Kevlar or their variants exotic nowadays. They are all over 30 years old.

2. I always liek to think that building a speaker is 70% science and 30% art.

When you hear a good speaker you know. It just sounds right. Trust your ears.

Well... raising a long dead thread (Hey that rhymes )

But I drive an i10, fitted with a Pioneer DEH-2200 Head Unit - so far fitted only two speakers in the front doors - that too the cheapest set of Sony somethings I could find at that time - the idea was I would upgrade soon (Needless to say the sound Q borders on the terrible) - been managing with this setup for a lil over a year now..... and I'm glad to say the time has come to put the ice'ing on the cake (thats my smiley limit!! damn)

Ok - so now I have say 6-7k (could stretch it upto 10K) to spend on two pairs of 6.5" speakers - (replacing the ones in the front doors with something better and new ones in the back doors) I refuse to cramp up my boot with speakers on the parcel tray - practicality comes first.

I like listening to my music soft, so clarity and tightness is much more important than thump or overall volume. BTW - I'm actually a spoilt "audiophile" and listen to most of my music on a Nakamichi CD player coupled with B&O speakers so please suggest accordingly


P.S: I realise I'm stepping in dangerous territory, seeing nishant's question has remained unanswered for some 1400 days .... But heres wishing myself luck and hoping I get some snappy answers and suggestions

Cheers
