Finally, after 3 months of research in Tbhp, I got my i10 ICEd. Before I start off with anything, I would like to thank all the tbhp members for their valuable time and support.
Special mention to Rocksterraghu as he was there throughout the install and purchase of the equipment, infact the entire tuning was done by him. He knew much more than the installers at Sprocket knew. Thanks Raghu. Rider60 - thanks a lot for introducing me to the basics of ICE esp wiring. I never knew wiring cud make so much of difference.

Lets get onto the ICE now -

1) HU - ALPINE CDA - 9886
2) Amp - JBL GTO75.4
3) Wiring - Stinger SHK641 4GA 1400 watts kit & 1 Monster spk wire and RCA wire each
4) Front - JBL GTO607C
5) Rear - JBL GTO637
6) Sub - JBL CS1204B
HU, Amp and Stinger Wiring - sourced it thru a friend who was coming from US.

Installation done at Sprocket, Hyderabad.
Here goes the pics..

Its a stealth install with all the 4 speakers in the 4 doors and the Amp and Sub in the boot. The amp mounted by fixing a plank on the rear of the backseat. The job was very neatly done with a very good finish and no wiring was visible anywhere.

Monster (RCA & spr wire) is used for Subwoofer and Stinger is used for all the 4 speakers.. no spl reason, just to avoid confusion

The installation took about 6 hours and it was 1.30 midnight by the time it was done.

I am just loving the clarity and sound is crystal clear.There is no jarring at max volume too.

The entire ICE costed me 42K and damping will be a DIY with the help of Raghu. Will be damping it soon, may be over the weekend.

Congrats on the ICE. Nice equipment.
Where are the crossovers placed? If they are inside the door, you may run the risk of damage due to water that seeps inside during washing or rains. I had a similar problem which luckily got noticed when I was getting my ICE upgrade. Move them to the dash if they are not already there.

They are sounding too sweet. Tuning plays a major role. Rocksterraghu tuned the system to perfection as per my liking. Tuning can make or break a system.

Thanks Bhagwan ji.
We are looking at damping the front doors and the boot as you said. Actually, damping was supposed to be done at the time of install only but the installers at Sprocket knew very little about damping and their damping was nowhere close to OK. So, we've decided to go for DIY and will be doing it soon.
As mentioned, sourced the Alpine and Stinger from US thru shopping sites

The crossovers are indeed placed inside the door but we had a huge discussion on this before the placement. It was placed carefully so water cannot get into it. The reason for going for the dash is that i10 does not have wires going into the doors. They have that harness kind of thing, which u have to plug in. So, if crossover is taken in the dash, two wires have to be plugged.

Congrats Maverick! Finally, the pictures are on Team-BHP!

Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure following the install. The point that I may know better than the installer is just an indication of his inexperience and not that I know much.

I think the prices have already been mentioned by Maverick.

637s are nice, but not great. I wouldn't recommend it to people who are serious about the rear fill - like the ones who are chauffeur driven.

As far as the crossover in door issue goes, I don't think there will be an issue with that. It is secured and as Maverick mentioned, it is a pain to run two wires through each door.
