If the sub take cares of every thing then what is the need for bigger comp in the front and where to get the upfront bass....

That was 20+ years ago and we could not tell people what we did. Even now I dont.

Now I am confused. Vicki Rau has the Reva. VIcki, just stick to the stock locations and get 4" speakers for these. I have not seen the Reva locations but maybe just manybe you can sqeeze 5" speakers in them and enjoy a bit more bass.

JPL has an issue with not enough bass upfront.

Short of cutting the door panels, JPL i dont see another simple solution. I know you can show horn an 8" woofer into a Palio but I dont think you can do much more than 6.5" for a Santro.

Hi Guys,
Going to be out of town for the next few weeks.
Reading all the posts have cleared my mind. This is what I intend to do :-
1. GET A GOOD SET OF 4" COMPONENT SPEAKERS - decided on the Bostons
2. GO TO A GOOD INSTALLER - the Boston dealer in Kormangla, recommended in one of the posts

Will keep you guys posted on the end result.
Thanks again

Hi guys,
Just wanted to add a new development.
The REVA service guys advice that speakers in the front dash should not be too heavy as the facia cannot handle it and that this will just lead to rattles.
Also, as the electronics are in the rear (behind the rear seats) and need to be accessed every service, any speakers will have to be removable.
So now the only option I can think of is getting tube enclosures and installing ovals/6 inchers and fixing the enclosures with velcro and connectors so that these can be removed while servicing.
Will post as I fine tune the setup.
Thanks again for the great advice and feedback.

Default Reva - Ice

Hi all,
Just to tell you that I finally got down to finishing the sound upgrade on the REVA.
Details are :-
1. Head unit - Alpine (single CD changer)
2. Front Sp. Boston 4" component
3. Rear Sp Boston 6" x 4: co-ax
4.Cable Tsunami
6. Sp mounting damped
The installer put the tweeters on the front dash near the knee(says this is the optimum position). May cause problems later i.e. kids knocking them etc.
For the rear, we put a removable(simply lift out) shelf behind the back seats. This is a pre-condition as for servicing you need access to the boot floor.
Rear connectors with banana connectors.
More model specs+details later.
Sounds great after the previous tin can sound.
Of course like all die hard ICER(s), went way over the planned expenditure.
But what the hell, since I spend nearly 1 1/2 hours every working day in the car.
