Exclamation I10 - ICE Installed - Opinions and Reviews appreciated see page 24

Hello All !

I just got a Hyundai - I10 [Magna] for my wife.
I need to install a system in the car.
Budget is about 100 K.
I only want front components & subs.

Basically 1 HU + 1 set of components + 1 or 2 subs.

Can some 'senior' members suggest & guide - please.

What to buy ?
Where to buy from ?
Where to Install ?
Who will 'tweek' & 'set' the levels & x-overs ?

Help shall be appreciated.

Thanks.

hey man ,
welcome to team -bhp. First and foremost you have mentioned your budget as 100 k . I presume u meant 10000 . Well as far as the choice of equipment goes :

HU pioneer 4050 /5050 approx. 5500 - 6500
front components : illusion 6.1 EL approx 6500
sub : jbl 12 " approx 3500-4000
amp 4ch kenwood : 5300
blau : 6300
jbl 75.4 ( if available) : 8000
u will need amps if u plan to add subs.
wiring will be aditional 2500-3000 .

Respected Sir,

100 K = Rs. 1,00,000/- [Rupees 1 lac only].

I could extend that a bit, if I get something 'special' & 'audiophilic' !!!
Performance & result is what I care about.

Kindly suggest.

Awaiting reply.

Did you check out the thread I mentioned.

Please mention you listening preference like what kind of music you listen to as this will allow people to suggest a particular brand of speakers.

Sir,
My preferrances are Classical & Light Female vocal Jazz & Soft Rock.

I like to listen to Symphonic pieces [classical] - Mahler - Ressurrection [Sym # 02] + Bethoven # 9 etc.
Alan Parsons Project + Yello + Pink Floyd + Dire Straits etc.
Mary Black + Amanda McBroom + Rebecca Pidgeon + Kari Bremnes etc.

Basically, this has to be an out & out SQ install. No hiphop / No trance / No house etc.

I assume you mean "1 HU + 1 set of comps + 1 or 2 amps + 1 or 2 subs". Subs wont run off the head unit.

If you are considering spending more than 30K on your system you need to do more research that just reading this "ready reckoner". When I get the time I will re-open this thread and address these systems as well.

Sir,

I read that post;
However, it stops @ Rs. 30/- K
I guess my HU will cost that much. I was looking for a Alpine HU.
I believe that the 9887 is good ? Alternate Suggestions ?

Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. - CDA-9887

Thank you all; I shall appreciate the help & suggestions.

Respectfully,

BHAGWAN

Yes I agree I was under impression that your budget is 10k.

We have couple of people having 100K plus install. Since the budget & preferences are clear, people would be able to suggest you as per your requirements.

Well am not a 'senior' here. But it's always nice to think about how to spend money .

You might need to breakup the total budget roughly into component wise costs and then look for products in that price range.

Say, something like
HU - 20K
2/3 way front compos - 15K
Amp for front compos - 15K
12"/15" sub - 20K
Mono Amp for sub - 20K
Wiring/Install/Damping - 10-15K

Then again if you go for one 4ch/5ch Amp, the mono budget can be spread out to the other items.

Edit: Those figures are rough numbers.

9887 is a good HU.

A possible break-up would be:

1. HU - 16-17k
2. Front comps - 25-30k
3. Sub - 12-15k (I dont think you'll need 2 subs based on your musical tastes, and since you have a small car)
4. Amp - 4 channel - Rs. 45-50k
5. Cabling/ Enclosure/ Installation/ Damping - 15-20k

Roughly about 125-135k total.

1. Please listen to a few systems.
2. Make a list of your priorities. With the budget you've got you need not make too many compromises.
3. Keep in mind that the i10 has it's limiations - it is a small car, with a small engine and thin body panels. Adding 30 kg of weight in damping, amplifiers, speakers and the associated electrical load will be felt (if slightly).

HU: 9887 or any that has TA and SQ: 20K
Components: Illusion/Infinity/Hertz: 12K
Coax in rear doors: same as above 6K
Dual 10" subs: IDQ: 16K
Amps: 1 5/6 ch amp or a monoblock and a 4ch. amp. 30K
Damping: 8K
Wires and Install: 8K
I am not sure that the prices above are accurate (infact I am sure they are not) but it will give you an idea.

Roughly about 125-135k total.

Team-BHP effect --- Extending even the 100K budget...

Anyways my suggestion would be :

Head unit : 25-30K

Alpine 9887 / Clarion head units

Front Components : 15-20K

1. Hertz High Energy Comps / 3 Way comps ( if they can be accommodated in I10 doors)

2. Illusion Audio carbon series ( Not sure of the price .. I guess its 30 K )

3. Morel Components

Rear Speakers : 6-10 K

1. Hertz HSk / GZ speakers / Illusion :

Amplifier : 40-50K

Steg / Audision / Genesis : 4 channel
Class D monoblock for driving sub

Sub : 15-18K


Image Dynamics 12"

Wiring + Damping + Install :


arnd 10-15K

Hey prabhu, your profile lists a Swift and a Skoda RS too. What kind of ICE do you have in those cars?
