@shuvc: One of my friends had the first gen safari & even with a basic system it sounded quite well & to my amusement I saw that he had put 6X9s at front as well as at back

edit: I know ICE gurus will kill me for even mentioning this

Shuvc and techno, on this thread both of you have given me the best solution, which I must demo myself, since it appears to be the best setup for me

Door ka mother sister ho jaye ga.

It is a good thing but the door and the door panel will not be able to handle the load and the sound output from the 6x9`s

Tsk: Knowing you, I am very tempted to say that you are completely, "6x9-in-the-front-door" material.

Why not I have heard of 6x9s installed on boot door & they sound well.

So if he damps the panel & door me thinks it should sound fine.

Biggest challenge will be to be able to place the 6x9s in the doors

B&T has listened to the setup I enjoyed. He knows

6x9 will be difficult, so I will require circular speakers of 3 way type.
Please suggest some options and budget in them
I guess JBL 8 series will have some, and so will Bull/Rainbow and Illusion.
Now it comes to budget.

3-way , 2-way should not be a criteria IMO. Speaker size should be. But 6"/6.5" round fronts (2 or 3 way) may not satisfy your mid-bass needs - without an amp ie. Hence, go to an installer and be adamant about 6x9 fronts. Ask him how he'll install.

Damping the doors is a must. It would go a long way in giving you that 'body' to the sound; reducing the 'hollowness'.

JBL 937s will probably be among the most VFM and at the same time suit your needs.

Guys

How much damping should be enough for Safari's 2 front doors.

Here i'm talking about damping both innermost + inner layer.

thanks

About 2 sq meter (21.4 sq foot) would be enough.

6x9's , 3 ways!!!

Get the 7 series, you should get it for a good price as 8 is out.

Either way, you will have to damp, wont cost much if you use NoiseKill right?

Now, can someone quote how much if Noisekill is used and how much for its competition.

Same quantity but if one is not satisfied then one can double the figure

That would be Rs 150 per square feet. As mentioned everywhere in the forum.

Tanveer - I would live with the stock ICE & buffer up the budget slightly before going for any upgrades & yes step-by-step is the best method, you'll appreciate every upgrade more.

But basic config remains the same, a decent 4-ch amp (at least 7k unless you can find something good second hand), a set of good speakers up front & a 12" sub.

Anyone can say anything but I can tell you from my listening experience that if you're looking for well-rounded sound, you need the sub to fill in the lower frequencies. No matter how good speakers you might buy, they'll never fill in the lower frequencies like a sub will.
