Nice DIY! Congrats!
I don't know whether its just me or the fuse is actually set close to the amp. Isn't it supposed to be put near the battery? I think it is mentioned in the manual also. Please cross check.

Hi, could you please tell how that would make the speakers sound better?

The mdf spacers are inside or outside the panel?

It is a good thing you got the midbasses installed from outside the door. It does make a substantial difference in the Swift.

i actually used two spacer rings width installed the speakers! and now they are quiet punchy too!

Default Swift ICEing... JBL + Pioneer = BUDGET?? HELP!

Hey I need help ICEing my Swift Lxi...

Here's what i've found out:

HU - Pioneer 5090 - Rs 5500/-


Rear Co-axial Speakers - 6X9 JBL GTO938 (300Watts) - Rs 3500/-


Front - JBL GTO638 (180 watts) - Rs 2000


Total coming to Rs 11k....

Now i have some queries regarding this arrangement:

1) Do I require an AMP to feed the co-axials as i've heard i wont get the necessary 'punch' without one... Also i would have to go without the front speakers as i really cannot cross this budget. So should I remove the front speakers and add an amp instead??
If so, than what brand should i possibly go for!
Also are the GTO937:

better than the GTo 938?? GENRE = ROCK, n a lil trance

2) I have heard from my friends that Pioneer speakers (300watts) are a better deal.. Though i know neither price nor availability.. Is the GTO 938 a good choice or do i have better options at the same price?

3) Genre is strictly ROCK and Trance... I require more MID range... Bass wouldn't hurt either!

4) Should i mount my rear speakers on a parcel shelf (don't have one yet) or should i have them stacked vertically on boxes on either side of the trunk??

Please gurus, help me out... I need to get my ICEing done by the latest!!

Sir, the pricing for the HU doesnt seem to be right.

HU - Pioneer 5090 - Rs 5500/-

5090 is India series and I myself bought it for 9000 rs
5050 is some other asian country series thats available for the price you indicated.

There are differences in both the HU's.

Gurus - please correct me if i am wrong
