good option,

Get PIo or JBLs and hence 6000 x 2 = 12000Rs

Wiring 2-3k

Tube= 6k

Have seen a center speaker mounted on the dash. See if you get this Pioneer TC CX7

Hi,
I recently spruced up my ICE with JVC avx-2 in my scorpio.
I tried the DIN type speaker setup in ALPINE IT WAS NOT AVBL ANYWHERE,even clarion has a model which was not avbl here.Alpine versio does not have an amp. I bought the previous version which cones with a small amp(7K was the cost of centre speaker with amp).Pm me for dtsl.
I mounted the centre speaker on the AC console setup between the front seats and the amp below the AC console in the dash.
I also added a monoblock with the new twin coil sub12" mounted in a box.
5.1 set up for DVD movies is great!.Hunting for DVD AUDIOS.

In this budget, my opinion is to avoid using any centre speaker. Just get a normal 4 channel amp to power the front speakers, other 2 channels to power the sub/tube. Run the rear speakers off the HU. Yes, That's all for now. Get the best you can afford within the budget.
Later, when there's more greens to be thrown away, get a pair of 4" dual cone speakers from a respected brand (alpine still makes some very good ones) and a decent 4 channel amp. Drive straight to Anwar @ Autofusion. Tell him to fix both these speakers inside the dash bang in the centre. Yes, it's going to be difficult but it can be done. Power the speakers individually from 2channels of the amp and use a Y cable to split the centre channel RCA. Use the other 2channels to power the Sub/tube/rear speakers. Switch off the internal IC of the HU, tune the system and match each channel according to your favourite seating position/tastes etc...
Enjoy the true 5.1 surround with Baby doll doing her tongue clicks (Sam has a good collection of her), Shakira moving her unboned hips, Shakeela doing her best and Sunny leon doing her........ You know! All this while the driver is getting mad over the nerve cracking traffic blocks of Bangy.

And ofcourse, don't forget to put the install pictures here. And I want a ride in that backseat once it's done.

Could he perhaps consider putting a single 4" in the middle of the dash where the dash meets the windshield? Facing the cabin, it could be a small FG pod which wouldn't mar the view. Child's play for Anwar.

hehehe , yesterday my car completed one year after the date of purchase and yes I got the HU fitted . I have not added the amp , sub and Centre speakers as of mow but will happen shortly .

First off i felt that the SQ is not at good as Sony but the features rock. especially the BlueTooth Phone Audio and the BlueTooth Phone. I expect the sound quality to get better after the amps are in place , now I am running JBL GTO607 Componets upfront and the new GT5963 6x9 Coaxials at the back. I wanted to tune and get used to the HU properly before i add anything more as the are way too many features. Including an option to turn off the internal amplifier.

I will post the install pictures,soon ...

It doesnt have one. 5k for an active would be asking too much.
