Default i10 ICEing help

Hi all the gurus.After doing an exhaustive research on this forum(which u will come to know as we go along the query),i am still very confused about the ICE setup in my car.(which is why i request u not to close this thread,and also apologize for the very long query).First here's the basic information that you would need.
1. My Car: i10 era
2. No current setup.
3. My Budget: 13k.I know the gurus will make me extend my budget, so i am already prepared,still cannot go beyond (+2k)
4. I love to drive.Would never get a chauffer.
5. My Music preferences: Here is the biggest problem.I listen to all genres of music,from rap,hip-hop,R&B(usually old skool like tupac,biggy,redman,dr.dre,etc) to electronic, rock and roll(beatles,The doors,Janis Joplin,Pink Floyd,etc).Maybe this can help; I play hip-hop-50% of the time,electronic-25%,rock n roll-25%.
Additional Information:
6. I am willing to sacrifice my boot space but would try to avoid cutting of door panels as much as possible.
7. What am i looking for: I really love my music so am looking to get the best possible sound in my budget. By best I mean - Good quality and 'clarity' more than the "thump" or the "boom".

Ater reading all the posts, this is the setup i could think of
HU: pioneer 5050
Front Component Speakers JBL-GTO 607c
Rear Coaxial Speakers JBL-GTO 937

I knew nothing About systems before this,whatever i know is through this forum,so excuse the dumb questions

1. Is this setup compatible?
2. Would the HU give enough power to all the 4 speakers? or would i need an amp or sub's? if yes,then please suggest some other setups under 15k,which has everything(speakers and the amp).
3. Is it Worth getting pio 5050 over the 4050? does the HU have any effect on the sound quality? I'll only play music from the USB(no ipod),and don't really care about the display so much,so which 1 is a better buy?
Looking For Some Help

Your selection is perfect, @biggy, nothing to worry. Just see if you can get the GTO608c instead of the 607c.

Compare the features of 4050 with 5050. If you find 5050 has things you don't need, go for the 4050.

The setup will be loud enough even for slightly loud listening (for a short while), but definitely not loud enough to wake up the neighborhood. If you want to do that, you definitely need to go for an amp and a sub. Leave them out for the time being.

Thanks for the reply.
Wouldn't want "wake-up-ur-neighbors" sort of loud ,but hope is loud enough for about 3-4 friends to just sit in the car, chill n enjoy.
anyway, will get back in touch later (if the need be for an amp).
Thanks again
