Default ICE Help For My Maruti 800

Hey Guys,

Me planning to get a ICE setup very soon and need your help,I am mentioning my questions in points below.

1 : Head Unit is a JVC = Cost:Rs:4900/- (MP3,FM n et all)
2 : Pioneer TSA-6980 6 Inch x 9 Inch 4-way Car Speakers (Rear)
3 : SONY Xplod 4" Speakers (Front)

Now my question is. Is this the right setup for my car? And is it really essential for me to get the front speakers installed as i feel according to me the system should play fine with the Pioneer's that i have chosen as they are 4 way.Navin, please comment on this.

Regards,
Niki.

its looks fine If you can, get good boxes for those 6x9. Dont get those Pio tweeters in case your dealer recommends. Those 6x9 are trebble happy and they should make you happy with enough bass(in a box setup) and trebble.

if you have a bigger budget we can give you more recommendations.

Since my inputs was called for, I'd like to see you have better front speakers.There are some that are quite affordable. JBL and Blaupunkt both have better balanced speakers than Sony for about the same price. Take a listen.

JBL CS series and Blau GTO series are VFM lines. Either I think will meet or beat the Sony Xlpod speakers at the same price.

Sony's Xplod line so far has disappointed me.

Default Need help to upgrade the ICE on Maruti 800

Hello Gurus,
I need help you upgrade the ICE on my maruti 800.I have a pioneer TS 20 tweeters installed in the front ( earlier had jbl 4" round speakers)...Rear speakers are again jbl GT0937 (coax) and have jbl 2 channel amp powering them (JBL GT402A amplifier).. Will be getting a second hand Clarion 4 Channel amp from our BHPian sheyasma... Want help to get a sub installed and right tuning to get the best out the both amp to be installed. Would need to help to choose the right SUB for this setup(looking at 10"-- space constraints.. you see)... Would it be a good idea to get the JBL 4" to be installed in the front doors with spacers installed???

Why not get a set of JBL components upfront instead of getting JBL round speakers?
a 10" JBL sub is good for the job.

Yes prices hold good in Bangalore as well, possibly a plus minus of 500 bucks depending on dealer. I myself am running a similar setup, incluidng a 12" sub (JBL) and GT5 6.5" components with amp. Great sound. Boot's lost of course, but then that wasnt a priority for me.

800 can accommodate a 12incher but the enclosure must be made well according to the specs of the manufacturer. will be a tight fit and a clever technician will have to be innovative enough to make it.
