Default Kicker Amp, Subwoofer, Speakers + any good USB support HU

Guys,

Couple of qs:

1. How much do Kicker stuff cost in here? If i plan to go for a AMP, Subwoofer, and 4 speakers... how much would it cost me? (In Delhi)

2. What are the best HU models with USB support... ?

3. If Kicker is not a good option, what are the alternatives...?

Lastly, i do not have a heavy budget for the same...

Please let me know

Thanks
Udit

Please post your budget.

There are better options in the price range of Kicker. It depends on what your music tastes are. And Kicker price range is normally HEAVY.

There're lots of HUs available with USB option these days. Again, you have to reveal your budget to put up some names and models according to that.

i personally dont feel that Kicker is VFM...they have this sub in a sealed box...that costs 18K...and there's nothing great about the sub..the only distinguishing factor is that its very thin...so if anyone has major space constraints...can go for kicker sealed sub..also kicker amps are also over rated...there are gud amps say JBL..Blau

i too tried kicker for my swift...but then found MTX more suitable to my taste...kicker compos were just too bland. There are various other options...i think JBL is the VFM.

There are numerous systems with USB and Aux...iam using Pio 5050...with Kenwood rears and MTX 6.1 compos...and iam quite satisfied with the SQ..although i feel that sub is missing...have it on my wish list.

for 15 K i would suggest...go for a Pio HU..grey around 6K
JBL compos for front doors (can try grey too)
JBL rear (grey)
then whatever your left with...spend it on dampening of the front doors!!
if you got stuff with bill and warranty...either u'll have to stretch ur budget or settle for inferior stuff..without any dampening.

15K for everything - USB HU, amp, 4 speaker + sub is too low.You may need atleast 20-22K, I think for a basic budget setup with all the equipments in place.

20-22K including a sub and an amp?? No way. IMO if an amp is included, then the setup will cost minimum 25K and that's if all/most of the things are grey.

Please avoid it. It is against the rules too.

It matters to us. Many of us find posts with SMS terminology to be un-readable. So please do all of us a favour and refrain from using dots or SMS.
