Honestly, 5K is not enough. Unless you are someone who just needs OK quality music. But I think if you were, you would not be taking so much trouble. Instead you would have gone to the dukaan and said, "what can I get for 5K"

Is it possible to increase the budget to 10K?

Dear Sam,

I plan to purchase an i10 era in Jan 2008. My Budget is around 15K. I like Instrumentals(Flute, Sax, Veena), AR Rahman songs (Both Melodies and Rock type).

After reading all the material I am so confused! I was thinking of a Pioneer HU and JBL/Blaupunkt speakers.

I assume that I do not need amp and sub woofers right now. Please suggest me a setup within this budget(+ or - 2k) and arranging the speakers in i10.

Hello baba,

If I am not totally wrong, the i10 will accomodate 6.5" in the front and rear. Similar to the Getz. In this case you should definitely get a set of components for the front.
A nice set should put you back between 5 to 6K with bill and warranty.
Then you need a pair of coaxial speakers for the rear. This should put you back by another 2.5 to 3K.
A decent Pioneer HU should cost snother 5 to 6K.

All in all you would have spent around 14K. Now you will have around 1000 rupees left.

Go and buy one bottle Sula Brut (I think around 800) and a bunch of roses in mixed colours. A handheld bouquet. About Rs.150/-

I suggest you buy the champagne in the morning and hide it in your fridge, or the neighbours fridge. Then fit your system and that very evening, pick up 2 or 3 nice CDs from home, then ask your special lady to go for a drive. Why? Just, come on.

When she reaches the car and sits inside, give her the bunch of roses (hidden in the back seat). Drive off to a quiet spot and play her favourite song. Unpop champagne (also hidden on back seat) and pour out in 2 glasses (also hidden on back seat)
Sit in quiet comfort and enjoy the song. Since you are driving, do not consume more than 1 glass of champagne.

After this short drive, return home smiling and chatting with bottle of champagne in hand and sit in living room talking while you finish champagne.

After this short and romantic event, regardless of age and number of years in relationship, prepare for a rather active night.

The End.

Team-BHP offers you advice more comprehensive than you can imagine.

Check and follow this one - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/ask-gu...tml#post626961 - @mohandc has just started a query for ICE for i10.

Mods: could we move this post along with the above posts to a new "ICE for i10" thread? There is likely to be a lot of demand for info on ICE for i10.

I got the Pioneer 2950 with 4 entry level Sony Speakers - the total cost
including installation charges came to Rs. 7500. The Pioneer was without
Bill & Warranty, but the speaker came with B & W. I think the prices
have gone down for a Pio 2950, so it may be even cheaper now.
I am more than satisfied with my setup.

There is also a lower model Pioneer (1950, I think, not sure) -
the difference between between that & the 2950 is that the lower
model doesn't have an AUX IN & it plays only Audio CD's - doesn't play
MP3/WMA etc - the 2950 plays all of these.
