Default ICE Upgrade needed for NHC Vtec.. Help

Hi guys,

I have 4 month old NHC vtec with stock Alpine double-din system(having by far the most complicated UI ever), changed the rear stock speaker(which were insultingly crap de jour) with Pioneer 5 way TS-6992 460W.

it sounds much better now but nowhere what i wanted(I am not a hardcore audiophile though)

I need advise which Amp, front speakers, tweeters etc to put. i don't require absolutely high end stuff, good reasonable brands will do fine.

Thanks everyone, appreciate it.

Amps: JBL, Blaupunkt, Kenwood, Pioneer etc.. (about 7k for any of them)
Speakers: JBL, Blaupunkt, etc.. (about 6K for a pair of components for the front)
you will also need speaker level to line level adapters if you amp does not have speaker level inputs.

He has an Alpine Double DIN HU, that has RCA preouts (2 preouts IIRC) so he doesn't need a line level adapter.

Hi Guys,

had a look at Pioneer component speakers model no.1072, a sub-woofer 1200w along with 700w Pioneer Amp.

Now the question whether to go in for Grey market stuff or with bill, the difference is around a whopping 40-50%,

Another dilemma is that lot fakes around, but how does one spot them.

Any suggestions are absolutely welcome.
