Default ICE for my Aveo 1.4 Base

Hi,

My Aveo will be coming next week and I want to get it decently ICEd.My Aveo base model comes with 2 speakers on front doors.
I have done good a bit of search in the ICE section. But couldnt find answers to all my questions for Icing.
I have a ltd budget of 10-15k. My music preference ranges from MEtallica,Nirvana...AC/DC..Linkin Park...Godsmack and popular
Hindi songs (no not Himesh)

Currentl I am looking for:

1) Suggestions for HU. I want CD/MP3/Aux-In/USB. (Any brand would be fine.) (I think I can get Pioneer 3090 for Rs8500. Is this price Ok?)
2) Suggestions for Speakers. How many of them do I need now that I already have a pair in the fron, But dont know its quality
Which speakers? I have seen JBL GTO 937 (Mrp 4500) being very popular amongst Bhpians. Are there any other options at similar price level? How are Polk/MTX/Sound stream?
3) I dont want sub/Amp right now. Can I get it done later if I feel the need for it.
4)What all places in Mumbai would you suggest that I can go to. I live in Powai and would prefer anything in subrubs(Andheri,Bandra..)

Of course I am looking for a good deal. Please pour on your suggestion or at least throw in your pointers.

Thanks

the grey market equivalent of the 3090 ( the 3050) is available for 6k. I say that , the rear 6x9's , and a pair of good components in front! there is another alternative from JBL, the GT5 series

As you're in Bombay, I would suggest you to peep in to Boom car audio. See if you can audition Illusion audio speakers. They're very good VFM too.

If you want to buy JBL, then I would suggest you to try their new power series and Gt5 series before you decide.

As of now, get a decent HU and rear speakers. If you're planning to go for a sub in the future, then don't waste money and space on 6X9s (ovals). Get round coaxials.
Buy good brands and makes only. You'll smile for long.

Hey just forgot to update you guys. I got Pioneer HU (USB support & 2 RCA) w/o warranty and Ground Zero rear speakers. I wanted JBL GTO 937 but couldnt as the rear plank had to be modified and I didnt want it to be changed. I auditoned GZ and JBL speaker that could have fit into the slot and found GZ much better than JBL.

HU - 5500 (I guess)
GZ - 4000 ( I guess)

I have kept the front stock speakers.

@speedzak
Thx for the info will try the place if I want to get it upgraded.
