if i had access to a good installer i would have got a decent compos (5.25 or 6 )for the front.

me have a doubt; since his 4inchers would be located at the company fitted pods, and hence open to at the rear, how effective would it be?

Kicker 4" Component Speakers available with "Supercarz" on JC Road, in Bangalore.
I would not suggest you choose Earthquake, now that I have told you where to get the Kicker Compos from.

Default kicker cost's

angelfire Kicker ES 4.2 cost around 5600/- approx in blore.

I finally skipped the idea of 4 inchers and went in for a 5.25 boston component spearks on the door .. did all the installation at autofusion koramangala ..its a very clean and neat install.

Thankyou all you guys for suggestions and inputs. Now next step would be a monblock amp which i would consider in next couple of months.

Good Move, now you will get some good mids, which would not have been possible with 4" Compos.

Getting the components was a good idea. Hope the installations have come out well. Do post some pics of the installs.

Well done. Most Maruti cars have a measly 4" slot in the front. Do post pictures so they can see how you fit a 5.25" component set.

Maruti cars can accomodate 5.25" comps in the doors with some modification...but when the speaker slot is located in the dash as in case of an Esteem vxi(the new ones that is)...No modifications can be done to fit a 5.25" comp or speakers...As the slot provided is too congested and th speaker grills are moulded in accordance with the shape of the dash

and it is sick with the sound hitting your knees. I am looking to find a clean way to install speakers on the front door. Still haven't found a good workable idea.
