Rishabh, DSK165s are 6.5" and will not fit the stock locations in the Accent's front doors without some modding. The stock locations are 5.25". The 5.25" Hertz Dieci model would be DSK130. It would be about Rs.5K or Rs.5.5K

If you have subs, you will be OK with 5.25" or 6.5" coaxials in the rear. The Hertz Dieci models would be DCX130 (5.25" co-axials; 4.5K to 5K) or DCX165 (6.5" co-axials; 5K to 5.5K). I guess Gunbir or JB will have to confirm the prices

For 6.5K you can look at the JBL 12" basstube or the 10" sub-in-a-box (not sure if this is available now). Or get a Pio sub and build a box. Unless you go for 2 Pio subs, you will not be able to get 2 subs and box/es for 6.5K.

The JBL component & co-axial details would be on the website I mentioned earlier.

As much as possible please listen before you buy. You can also probably think of Alpine's entry level models, if you can be sure they are genuine.

I remember reading on another thread that the JBL prices on Rediff are with B&W. The Hertz prices I mentioned are also with B&W.

Damping your doors would run to 3K to 4K. Damping the boot (+ boot lid + license plate) also means the total (doors + boot) damping would be 5-6K. If you damp the door outers (what you see when you open the plastic door-panel trim) that should take care of waterproofing. The OE speakers are just paper and will not hold up to a lot of water. The cones of the Hertz/JBL speakers will be treated to hold up to some water splashing. But it is best to prevent water getting on them. A flap of plastic foam/AC foam over the woofer's magnet inside the door (the woofer magnet will not be protected by the damping) should prevent water from getting on the speaker directly. For the rest, don't roll down your windows in the rain. That's what I do


Rishabh, the JBL subs are way better than the Pio subs. But why do you want two? You sub budget of 6.5K will not accommodate 2 of them (JBLs). The Sealed Box (12") is 8K, if I'm not mistaken.

the viva can take 6.5 in the front door easily with the stock adapter which comes along the car in which the stock speakers are fitted.....with cutting them a little bit.....no major change is required....

Actually all you need to fit 6.5" in the accent/viva front doors is an mdf spacer ring, no cutting shutting really needed.

Stuff a clean old cotton sock in the port. the stuff you would use for sports. I used a brand called Thor-Lo. worked fine. The details are a long sordid story. :-)

hi guys,

finally im upgrading my ICE setup.

here goes-

My current Ice setup:-

HU - pio 6850
Amp - pio gm-x944 and desi alpine(given away)
rear fills - infinity ref9613l 6x9s 100w rms
fr tweeters - pio Ts-s20(given away)
Sub - 2 pio 304f(given away) 1 pio 306c
fr spkrs - oem(not using)

Now my new setup:-

HU - Pio 6850

Amp - using the 944 only

Fr Spkr - Hertz Energy Esk 165 components. Tweeters on the dash woofer in stock location with mdf spacers.

Rear Fills - infinity ref9613l 6x9s.

Sub - Hertz Energy es 380 15"

Sub Enclosure - .75" Mdf ported(will post the specs later as im getting it installed rightnow.

Port - AZ Audiocomp.

Dynamat Extreme damping(I guess) - fr doors and rear tray.

Replaced the stock tray with .75" mdf tray.

I got the comps installed yesterday. i was really blown away by the clarity and bass. was only listening to them. man they rock.

Also im only using my pio 944. 2 ch bridged to drive the Sub. 2 ch to fr comps. rears on the HU.

Im getting the installation done by DRIVEN in mayapuri. They are really doing a good job.

Thanks alot gunbir for helping me decide and getting the stuff installed. i really appreciate your help. Thank for the time you devoted to my install. Cheers

Also thanks to Hydra, LBM, Navin, Sam(alpabetical order LOL) and all others for your advice. Without you guys i would have never known what ICE is all about.

I will post pictures in the evening if anyone wants.

Thanks,
Rishabh Sehgal

hi,

the next step is to install a monoblock. Rightnow im out of cash. maybe in a month or two ill buy another sub and a monoblock.

i guess the audiocomp port is out as im going for a sealed enclosure. lets see what we decide. in 10 - 20 min it'll be final.

thanks
