Also noticed now that i will find difficult to install 6x9 speakers on rear shelf the boot rods are right under it.

Can i go for 4 comp speakers with one sub with my amp?

no you cannot because each speaker takes one channel from your amp so thatis two channels for your front and the sub takes two channels. I am not too sure if your kenwwod Hu can run the components ...

Rockford fosgate has some nice 6 inch coaxials for your rear at 3800
an Polk Audio for 6800. These can run of your hu and you can keep your parcel shelf intact ...

JBL cs607 components should be about 6-7k
JBL 907 6x9 abot 3.5-4k
Sorry it is the JBL GTO 607 not cs607

Cutting the parcel shelf for 6x9s is not a easy task and better to avoid it. You should go for 4 compos i think.

rodeo.

components would run you about 6K per pair. So for 12K you can get 2 pairs of components. for a bass head like you the ideal setup would be not only 4 speakers but also a nice monoblock (prices start at 10K) like the Pio D510 or JBL 300.1 to drive the sub well. Then the 6200 could be used to drive the 4 (front and rear speakers).

Also many a bass head (or really what I call mid-bass heads) is happier with a pair of 6x9s in the rear instead of a 6" component. SO as a guide I'll just put down a few prices for branded products.

6" components: 6K and more
6x9 coax: 4K and more
monoblock amp: 10K and more

10K can get you 6" components and 6x9 for the rear
12K can get you 2 sets of 6" components
20K can get you all 3 of the above (amp, components and coax).

Hi rodeo, congrats on the new car.

Since you already have a 4 channel amp it's fine to use this.

Since your only looking at speakers currently in your budget here's my suggestion:

front: 6" components around Rs.6K e.g. JBL GTO607, hertz 165
rear: 6" coaxials around Rs.4K e.g. JBL GTO 637, hertz, blaupunkt

Connect the front components to 2 channels of the pioneer amp.

The remaining 2 channels of the amp you can connect to the subwoofer. The subwoofer should be in a ported enclosure.

The pioneer 6200 amp doesnt have that much power to drive the subwoofer so as Navin said, a monoblock amp is recommended.

If you get a good monoblock you like the D510 or the JBL 300.1 you can connect all the 4 channels of the pioneer 6200 to the front and rear speakers. The subwoofer can be connected to the monoblock amp. In which case instead of a ported enclosure for the sub, the enclosure should be a sealed one as the amp will have the power to drive the subwoofer.

Also please do not cut the rear tray and try to fit in 6X9. the optra has speaker locations in all the 4 doors which do nicely.
