Smile Need help on deciding which Speakers to Put

Hi Friends,

I got my Santro Xing on last Friday. I am confused in selecting music system. My budget is around 12 -15K. I dont want Sub and amp etc. I need Quality Sound.
1. I want to know Pioneer (Rs. 5200) 2 way 6x9" 330 watt KEVLAR CONE Speakers(yellow cone) better or JBL GTO937 (Rs. 4500) is better for rear. Or anything else good???

2. Front I am thinking to put JBL GTO426 4" speaker. (Rs. 2600)
3. HU I am planing for Pioneer 5850 or 6850.

Please suggest me which best or you guys know anything better for the same price it'll help me a lot.
regards,
Sunil

i would suggest good 6.5 inch components instead of the pioneer 6x9 & add a 2 ch amp instead of the front speakers.

For HU, get a 5850.
For rear, get JBL 937.
For front, get JBL GTO507 components.

Power all the speakers from HU for now. And when you find some more mooolah, get a 4 channel amp and power the speakers from it.

I would agree totally with speedzak but i guess you won't be able to fit JBL GTO 507 component speakers in the front speaker slot since the stock Santro size up front is 4" inch whereas the JBL GTO 507 is a 5.25" inch component system and i doubt if you would want to cut the door pad of your new car to accomodate the components in the doorpad.

I would advise you to look out for components in 4" inches if they are available in your city. I got Kicker Ex 4.2 component set for 5k which are 4" inch component set for my Esteem and believe me they deliver stunning SQ. Nothing beats a good set of components up front but if you can't get them then use good quality front co-axials. The JBL GTO 427 will be a perfect match for the GTO 937 at the rear. PLease do not avoid front speakers as they are very important for the front soundstage and the overall listening experience.

You can also add a 4channel amp to power the 4 speakers at any time in the future, something like a JBL CS 60.4 should be able to do the job just nicely!.

Cheers
