This time around, ask the installer to stick a flat glass-fiber sheet (the type used to cover gates) to the MDF board with Araldite, before cutting the speaker holes. This will prevent the shelf from sagging and cracking. Navin recommends a sandwich of 2 FRP sheets and 12mm marine-grade ply for stiffness in woofer boxes. This should work for your shelf too.

Exactly what was done in my friends car. The end result was quite good and its not a very costly affair as well. I have noticed some installers use a metal pipe like thing along the lenght of the tray from where it is hinged. Not quite sure what pupose it serves. Any idea DerAlte?

Looks like, i should replace my tray with MDF (which i am guessing is of the same plastic material used on doors of cars). and replace front speaker with compos. Can someone please suggest me good compos available (only original nothing grey) and approximate prices of them. Also, would i need to change the cables used to play the system and speakers.

MDF = medium density fibreboard. commonly known as nuwud/chipboard. its made out of wood
without an amp, the stock cables should be adequate

I believe Wagon R has 4" speaker provisions in the dash. If you don't want to cut the door panels, you can go for Illusion 4" components.

While what Der Alte recommends will work for the shelf the total of 2 x FRP + 12mm MDf = 18mm. Not much of a saving in thickness. I beileve that 2 sheets of FRP (3mm each) on either side of a 6mm sheet of MDF might be adequately stiff. what it will lack is a bit of damping.

The metal pipe is acting as a stiffener on one edge. Alternates are screwing a steel (alu won't do) L- or T-channel to the edge or underside, preferably on both long sides.
