Default swift audio setup without affecting boot space

hullo..i'm back with my doubts!!!
.. my friend wants to improve his setup in his swift..

presently he has basic SONY cd-mp3(will update model number later) system old with stock sony co-axials in front.. he's got a budget of 9000.. and wants to improve the setup.. he's mainly into hindi music with good vocals, being trained in classical himself..
please suggest good setups without affecting the boot space.. obviously good midrange, but overall sound improvement too..keen on just adding to the present setup.
besides does anyone have an idea about an installer near MALLAD, bombay.. who'll come home and ionstall
??

thanks guys...

for 9K i'd suggest just getting a pair of 6" in the front and 6x9 on an MDF rear deck. Try JBL's GT5 series or Blau GTx.

for a sealed sub gross volume needed is about 40-50 liters. net volume of subwoofer 25-30 liter.

optionally an IB install requires a lot less.

IB. Infinite Baffle. Basically a sub which uses the trunk as a box. it can be rear deck mounted or mounted on a wooden plank behind the rear seat.

But it will be hard to do it in a swift as the gap better the rear seat and the boot door is quite less.

9K for rear speakers, sub and an amplifier.....

you go for JBL CS series or Blau GTO series 2-3K

Amplifier - Sony 552 - Rs. 3790,

Sub - may be gurus on the thread may better tell if there is a sub that can be purchased with the remaining amount
