Hi Guys,
Am finally selling off my 800 & going for the Palio....well not 1.6 but 1.2 Petrol. New one.

Have got a Kenwood KRC389 in my 800, which I plan to install in the Palio (as am broke now to get a new system ) . But am wondering which speakers to go for...costing should not be more the 2.5k-3k.

And which locations to install... right now in my 800, its placed :
2 - rear / 2 front (near the foot rests/pedals)
2 tweeters on the dash..both corners ..
and these fgive pretty good sound.
I beleive in Palio u can install them (the front ones) in the door panel...but tell me are these good places or place them near the pedals (in MDF boxes?)

Guys, need your expert opinions on Speakers & placement.

Thnxxx

what speakers u got in the 800. maybe you can use those too. i suggest u get new speakers for the front and use the old speakers for the rear. for 3.5K you could get a pair of nice 5" coax. i heard a pair of JBLs that sounded good but they cost more.

Which Fronts would you suggest? & size?

Also where should the ideal placement be for the fronts?

i dont know all the models or what fits in a palio (door or dash).
but get fronts that are prefably 2 way (I assume we are talking about 4", 5" or 6&quot with an angled tweeter so you can direct that to improve imaging. Blau or JBL would be your best bet but if you cant afford those some sonys are not bad. as far as Pio is concerned I'd be worried about the large fake market for them. Pio has been so successful in India that they have started a whole new industry with fakes.
