@Nimz, as per my discussion with the dealer, your option 2 is not possible. Even if you are ready to cut your dear Sparky, there is no space in the front door to fit a 6" speaker. Also, considering Spark's boot space, do you really want to go for subwoofer (considering you are not big fan of boomy bass). As per Navin's post no. 74, our options are limited :-(

Thats why I put the bottle in the pic

Well I can take that off if it improves sound quality.. basically a trade off.

So would that help significantly?

And do let me know what kinda speakers /brands I would have to go for.

So a pair of comps in the doors and a HU and am set for life..

Yes remove it will help a lot..

You can go any brand which you like...

Like Jbl , Illusion Audio, Alpine....

It depends if you get satisfied with the sound then it is fine. You are set for life...

Thanks LBM..

I am looking at a Pioneer with USB option at 9K or so.. plus some good speakers.. co-axials / components for around 4K just one pair in the doors whcih can do away with the need for rears as Hydra Ashok stated earlier in this thread.. then maybe later get a 4 ch amp and add a good sub..

I like a neutral sound with good mids..

Dont want to go for a complete system with sub etc within the stated budget but rather upgrade over a period of time..

Thnks

I have Pio (a rather old one) with JBL speakers and i feel they sound very clean (no bling here).

Get latest Pio (higher the series better options you will get with sound settings) and add a pair of JBL components in front door pad for now. Rest, as you said you can add on later.

Thanks again

The JBL is a little bright sounding. Some brands are not like Infinity , DLS , Illusion. Choose which you like.and do listen before buying.

Thanks Jaggu and LBM.

So HU is Pio and only the comps I need to check..

Again I may change the HU if I dont like the sound

@ LBM can you give me some model numbers and price points for Infinity, DLS and Illusion - model numbers for components that would fit in the door.

Thanks again

For Infinity you can catch hold of Sam Bhai and for Illusion get hold of B&T Bhai. And don't let them go...

Pio is a respected brand (W.R.T HU) and makes some decent HUs. I am sure you can spend those bucks intended for HU upgrade, on amps or speakers.

As far as the remaining is concerned, I'd bow down and respect LBM's point of view, he's the guru around here. Kyu LBM Bhai????

Try to listen to as many brands as you can, before you finalize, cheers!

P.S: Don't forget to post the pictures of the install, we all love looking at ICE setups!
