I dont know if the fiesta has tweeter pods. if not you'll have to cut a hole in the door panel and flush mount the tweeter there (if you choose to get components for the front). Does Infinity make 5x7 coax? It might be an option at 6K.

Why should he change the front and rear speakers when he is retaining the HU? I own a 1.6 sxi and am quite happy with the output from the delivered speakers.
Only thing one may need to go for is a woofer, that too if he is a total music buff.

It depends on personal tastes. people spend lacs of rupees on the audio setup. so I would say it is totally personal opinion.

hi,

he has a ZXI. it doesnt have a HU. i also think if there is no HU there might be no speakers. also the speaker are quite average full range 5x7 sanyo drivers.

for 11k with a hu i would suggest

basic HU 4k pio/kenwood/jvc
5.5" comps for 5k (you will have to confirm if that fits) or jbl 5x7s co-ax in the front (if you want 6x9 rears you will have to install co-ax in front)

if installing comps you can get pio 6x9s in that price i guess.

with 5.5 speakers dont expect good bass delivery from them. 6.5 would be better but not comparable to 6x9s(for rear)

so the ideal choice woud be to get 5x7 co-ax from hertz/jbl for 3.7k
rear 6x9s infinity reference/jbl gto/blau. for 4-5k

cheers

Hi JayD.
My suggestion is to stick to one brand/series of speakers. Mixing up speakers are better done by experts.

If You're keen on JBL, then get 607 comps for the front and 937 for the rear.

If it is Hertz, then I suggest you get DSK165 for the front and DCX690 for the rear.

If it is Blau, then 170 (??) comps in the front and the 6X9 from the same series in the rear.

I think it's not yet time to go for Pioneer and Sony speakers. Ofcourse, They'll improve soon and you can buy them for your next car maybe.

sureshp, if you are looking for 5x7 Blaupunkt and JBL have models that will fit. However with minor mods a 6" coax or component can also be fit in your car.

As fas as the 5950, for 5K it is a better price than if bought in India even without bill and warranty (any product bought outside india does not have a valid warranty anyway).
