ZAK...won't my car Look\Sound\Smell without an ICE???? hahaha..just kidding...

Wow!! that was a neat suggestion from you, ZAK. I truly appreciate the same.

Honestly speaking I am not the one for a HiFi Ice setup. A basic setup would keep me happy. As JK and you suggested, I would start low and keep adding on.
Zak I liked the config you suggested, could you also help me with model number and exact price for the same?

1> Pio6850 \Blau - Bermuda\Alpine HU(noclue about alpine). 8k (Which one is the best and will fit in 8K?)

2> Front components. 6k - JBL - (please gimme the model # I should go for)

3> Rear co-axials. 2.5k - (I can top it upto 6K, again want a good jbl coax that would fillin for sub till he gets in)

4> 4channel amp. 5k - (Please suggest a good amp with model number)

That makes it 25K.....

12" Subwoofer. 3k - JBL box - in OCT/NOV.


Wondering where SAM and Navin are, haven't heard from them yet :(

Cheers,
ICEMAN

old thread but had to revoke it as friend of mine is about buy indigo lx.

the indigo LX come with the ICE. (VCD player with mp3 playback with 4 speakers and two LCD screens)???

(@iceman, didnt you car come with the ICE)

guys for such a setup, which SUB and AMP do you suggest? The budget is 10K. should he leave the speakers as it is or connect them to the AMP.
(OR)
Should he exchange the current ICE? and add the 10k and go for a different ICE. if so how much should he ask for it?

personally i would go with option 2 because you can install exactly what you want.where as if you take whats offered , your stuck with it whether you like it or not.and normally it aint high end stuff considering all companys do their fair share of cost cutting when it comes to such things..

but also consider if your getting your own stuff you will have to spend a lot more than 10 k....

got know the details of the ICE from another post for Indigo GSX, i guess its same with the indigo sx too:

1. Kewood vcd player -KDC-MP4026V, TDF (Theft Deterrent Faceplate), Multicolour LCD with White LED Backlight, WMA (Windows Media Audio) Decoder, MP3 Decoder with ID-3 Tag Display, System Q, Dual Disc Changer Control Capability (with optional KCA-S210A), VCD Player (Audio Output St/L/R Selectable)

2. 4 Nippon speakers

3. 2 5.5" LCD screen in the head rests.

I think we should ask for a cash discount, how much can we ask for such a setup.

6) rest for install
7) you can get a sub later.
Hi Jk,
i have no doubt that what you suggest is good and you are really good at ICE. still wanted to say something really honestly.

why do you guys always suggest a comp set for the front? i mean know offense just a general opinion from my side.

if anyones tight on budget why not buy co-ax. i don't think co-ax from jbl or blau are bad.

why not he buy co-ax for front and save around 2-3k and get a sub? this way the person can enjoy the co-ax and he will know what it sounds like and later on he buys comps when the budget permits. this way he also can feel what the difference in co-ax an comps all about. if i were a newbie on a tight budget and want a sub i would get a co-ax on . what i'm trying to say is one should buy what he can afford. this implies to me as well. no offense to anyone.

thanks
rishabh

Weeeell k2kk22k22rk2r22k2rr,

The HU isn't bad. If I had to keep the system, I'd keep it (and get rid of the Nippon speakers. Screens are good, if that's your thing.
If not, I think I'd ask for a 40K discount lol (the more the better na)
Honestly, the HU is worth about 7-8K, Screens about the same (I don't know, I think) and the speakers are worth Rs.1000/-.
So I think about 25-30K you should get (as there are 2 screens)

@Clipto333 ...theres a huge difference in coax and components. I always thought the same as u do untill I had my installs done...

Music is da car is not only about boom boom!! and that is wot you will get from Coax in the front+rear+sub.

Components will deliver finer midrange and highs as compared to coax. Thus sound imagin will be perfect inside da car.

if short on budget..step by step installs is best rather than coax for front n later replacing them with comps.
Bottomline..its anyday worth investing in components.

I would always suggest to go for comps. Sub can be added later. If a person buys a coax first and then replace it with comps, the coax will probably go wasted.

hi,ok what should a person do when he has a smll budget and still want a sub??i know comps are much better than co-ax. but for a audio noob who's on a tight budget and still want a sub and amp with front and rear speakers, why not co-ax?? alot of people use co-ax as rear fills 6x9s are also co-ax, why dont people buy comps for rear as well? why spoil the sound? well guys it is just my way of thinking. so please dont take this as an advise.thanks,rishabh

Most of the setups Iv heard with co-axials upfront and rear+sub have resulted in a very weak front stage. All the "effect" seems to be coming from the rear and front co-axials are overpowered in the front

Comps in the rear can be used if you have the money to spend !!

Which is what I've seen happening to quite a few of my friends. Like they say, penny wise, pound foolish.

IMHO The small premium we pay for a set of components (over the price of a set of coaxials) is always worth it.

Unless one doesn't want to mount a separate tweeter somewhere (for whatever reasons -- quite a few people don't want to do this), a component always makes better sense.
