My suggestion for budget 4 channel amps would be the Powerbass 400.4 (which I'm using) and the Pioneer GM-D6704.

One of these amps with a set of components up front and coaxials at the rear would be a perfect start. Please avoid JBL speakers as I find them too bright. Another suggestion will be to go in for a 3 pre outs hu if at all you're changing that. This will give you the option to go in for a separate mono amp and a subwoofer.

Did you mean A6704 ?
An HU upgrade will significantly increase the bill and won't be possible in the given budget.
Any suggestion for the speakers ?

The A6704 is 8.5k on Pioneer's India website so should be available for around 7.5 in the market. That leaves about 11 in my wallet (unfortunately). I was suggested alpine and rockford by the shopkeeper (according to my budget)

Hello to BHPians, I have booked Creta SX variant and I am planning to upgrade ICE on it. Anyone have tried 8" or 10.2" Android based AVN head units ? Seeing quite a lot of variants from aliexpress and even from Megaaudio.in. Appreciate if anyone have attempted with any of these head units and would really appreciate if you can help to get some feedback and pictures of the install. Thanks, Geo.

Looks like people are satisfied with the head unit supplied with creta. there have been not many discussions on upgrades .
I was thinking of upgrading HU, replacing Front components and adding an AMP

Will changing the head unit ( was thinking of pioneer AVIC-F980BT) which is suggested by Pioneer website for creta be a worthy upgrade ?

That will give me apple car play and the annoying warning message will be gone too

I am concerned about the Maps which come with pioneer unit , car camera and steering remote integration, though pioneer claims that it is compliant..

Any thoughts ?
