15K for 4 speakers?
I would listen to Infinity, Polk, Boston, Illusion Carbon, Blaupunkt Velocity, or Hertz Energy. Each of them has a unique sound so please listen.

Hi gaurav,

Welcome to the most interesting section of this forum.

I have some friendly advice for you. Please don't capitalize the first letter of every word you type. It's extremely confusing to read and unnecessary, unrequired extra work for you! The right thing to do is capitalize only the first word of every new sentence and of proper names.

Then you can also use the right punctuation and use an extra blank line to start a new paragraph.

Like this.

As far as audio I agree with everything navin just said.

Lol Sam, the guy asked for audio advice and you gave him grammar advice!!

By the way gauravt, how will you fit oval speakers in round spaces?? Or is it that type 1 has oval speakers at rear whereas type 2 has round?

Go for Pioneer good choice then see the brands told by Naveen, may be components in front and coaixels in rear will do the best job for you.

Sam Bhai I think when Gaurav had typed the message it was whole in caps and the forum automatically change in to this format. hence the first caps anyways

for audio

put 6.5 inch in the front if they can be done by your installer. or go for slimer components like illusion audio which can be installed in tight places. for the rear go for the 6x9 to add some punch to the music.

At a pinch, a properly finished MDF spacer will allow you to put the ovals on the rear shelf without cutting the metal structure (which is always risky). I hope you meant the rear parcel shelf, and not the rear doors.

You have written that you have "heard of Mtx, Focal, Lightening Audio, ...". It is better that you actually listen to some brands to decide which one. I don't know the model numbers in the brands that you have heard of, but perhaps you can also easily audition (in Mumbai) other brands such as JBL, Blaupunkt, Illusion, Hertz and Pioneer.

JBL: Front GTO 507, Rear GTO 937
Blaupunkt: Front THc 132, Rear THx 693
Hertz: Front DSK/ESK 130, Rear ECX/DSK 690
Illusion: Front Im 5.1, Rear EZ 694

A bit of leg-work is needed, but the end-result will be something that YOU like.

One thing I wanna add here is you going for speakers in the front and the rear go for the same brand and the same series as different brands and different series tend to play different thus it will not be a good sounding setup.

in the rear if you can take DerAlte idea of using spacers and putting 6x9 in the rear deck it is a nice idea and I like it.

NO LBM I DON'T THINK THE FORUM DOES THAT AUTOMATICALLY.

See?? lol. Anyways, he is new and will learn, with us oldies around to guide him.

Gaurav, one good thing about putting a 6X9 is that you will get some decent low end whack and won't miss a subwoofer immediately. However, if you intend to put an amplifier and subwoofer, then you can very well do with a 6" circular speaker in the rear.

I am not uptodate on Hertz and Illusion pricing but I would assume that at 15K for 2 pairs of speakers he could manage to following as well.

Infinity 5010 and 9613 instead of JBL 507/937 and Blau ODc/ODx instead of Thc/Thx. The JBL and Blau TH pairs would cost him about 10K (total for 4 speakers).

Navin-ji, from the way Gaurav has expressed, it sounds like his budget for speakers is 5-10K, since he has set aside 9K for the HU. He will also need about 1K for spacers and other odds and ends.
