Hi @cletus, if you write in English it will be easier to understand.

You will be able to get a Sony HU with USB, JBL GTO coax for the front and JBL GTO937 ovals for the rear in your budget.

sorry typed it at 4 am in the morning , english isnt bad , just the typos went a lil too bad

i did read the various budgets one but didnt hold good for me as i want 4 speakers + a HU with USB for 10-11k

what ive zeroed in atm is
Pioneer DEH-P4050UB - 5500
JBL 507 - Rs. 3,750.00
JBL 937 - Rs. 2,400.00

planning on buying these from alpha mumbai , any better place suggested in mumbai to buy these from ?
im assuming about 1 k for installation .

would these fit in an indica? would i require a tray ?
this goes a lil over budget but shud be ok.

You can also go for pioneer HU and JBL or Illusion speakers combo. Listen before buying.

IIRC, Indica has a rear parcel tray. The ovals can go in there. The parcel tray has holes punched in, so an oval piece will come out to accommodate the ovals.

The dash will take 4 inch (again, IIRC - not sure) speakers; of, if you want, you can put them in the front door. The installers will discourage you from putting speakers in the front doors. Of course, the experts here will force you do precisely that.


Indica comes prewired for audio. You only will have to put in the wires from the speaker into the cables present; ditto for the HU.

Go through a thread on "New pioneer HUs launched" or something similar for feed back on the pioneer *050 series. 5.5k for 4050 is the right price.

the rear parcel tray is plastic. You'll need to put in something MDF.

why put 4 inchers on the dash when you can put 5 (or 6 inchers) on the door

cletusarrarr, I have the same install in my Swift LDI. the only additional thing is a set of JBL GTO series tweeters (help fill out the high notes). you need to tune the HU to your taste once to really enjoy the install - specifically the equaliser and base setting as well as the fader. Have fun!

JBL GT5 652 6" - Are these component speakers? Or coaxials?
Where did you buy these from? Are these with B&W?
The price looks good man!

LBM-sir-ji, "surrong" = "sarong" + "thong". A sarong (arrey yaar, lungi which surrounds both the legs!) with a thong (shuddha Hindi: kaupeen) worn on top. Like Superman, only slightly different. More like the late Mehmood doing the role of Superman - singing "hame kale hain to kya hua dil wale hain.." to Lois Lane, in that attire. Or maybe Bhatman, the desi Batman?
