Smile What abt this setup?? For My Baleno

Hi BHPN's,
Please look at the Options and suggest which one is really good for a baleno. Thanks In advance.

Please let me know what can be changed for better, I've done my ground work and come up with this configuration. I'm looking for only color display HU.
Thanks,
Mega

overpriced! for example the jbl cable kit costs only 2990 and you have quoted 80$ which is 4600rs or so

and why that HU? Its cool as it has touchscreen. There's aonther HU for 15k or so which has a small screen and it plays dvd.

It's way too overpriced!! DUDE!! Seems you're being taken for a ride.
You can get more high end stuff installed for this amount of money.

Given a choice in 1 lakh, I would go for the following setup;
HU - Clarion Z865 (retails for 20k on grey??)
Front Sundstage - Hertz ESK 163 (14.5k)
Rear fills - Hertz ECX 165 (6k+/-)
Sub - Hertz ES300D (9k+/-)
Sub amp - Audison SRX1 or SRX2S (25k+ ??)
Speaker amp - Audison SRX 4 (24k+/-)
Alternately, can also opt for SRX3 and run the front and sub from the amp and rear channels off the HU.

If it was a JBL based setup, then it can easily be done inside 50k I think.

i would suggest that you get it done by a good installer and do spend some money on damping too if you are going for a good setup

and

please go shopping with a BUDGET

lol; mega5918 on a mega iceing spree!

it was 44rs/dollar eh? blame XE.com - The Universal Currency Converter ; i used Euro to INR instead of USD to INR!

80$ = 3552INR! phew! Still its 550rs more than what you can get it for in here

Total thumbs up to this. I would do exactly this if I had 1L to blow on a fresh car now. Maybe I'd go for an IDQ 12" sub, and settle for an ECX130 in the rear -- thus keeping the total about the same.

EDIT: Uhhh... plus another 8K for wiring, 8-10K for damping and install. Can be figured into the total with the discount on the price of the equipment.

Speedzak,
It's why I've started this thread rite I've 4 Options with budgets starting from 66K-100K I wanted the fellow tbhpn's view on this setup. And a question to you is Hertz better than JBL??
I'm really impressed by JBL speakers (Including the technology and the material used for construct), cause I've a home theater setup completely JBL, except the surrounds (It's Bose 301's Dipole) and Amp Denon 3806 (9.1 Channel), It's been more than 2 years I've been using that system and believe me it delivers fantastic sound quality. It's why I'm inclined towards JBL, More over all my friends have JBL installed on their respective cars and they are pretty happy.
Let me know your views, I don't mind spending money, but what I buy should be value for money.
Thanks,
Mega

@SK456,
Now I'm unable to deside on one, what do you feel is better? None of my friends own Hertz, will make calls and find out if any dealer has Hertz installed and figure out.
