Take a look at his budget and then suggest. If he had a bigger budget, there would have been many more replies to this thread.

I did see his budget - but I would never suggest someone to pair up a powerful amplifier with a weak sub. Besides, we're known for stretching the budget, aren't we?

However, in case I keep the sub and just change the amp and get the comps up front would that gimme the sound the way I want it?

Also should I put a steering wheel remote?
Where did you see a steering remote for the Alpine?

I just assumed that there would be a steering wheel remote available!
Wrong assumption?

Also tight bass-base tube or standard woofer?

A Laura HU is available, should I get that or the existing Alpine is superior? I like the Laura one for all the wrong reasons- Looks, parking sensor integration etc.

Panky, the 608 is warmer sounding, with noticeably reduced treble. Also features a switch with a -6dB cut for the highs.
With that on, the GTO608C doesn't have any of the brightness that the GTO607 are known for. It creates a whole new sonic signature.

@Panky: Its a bit strange then that you say it sounds the same... I haven't heard the 608 but I too have been told they are warmer than the earlier ones.

Sir, I like "dhin-chak" sound, so the treble was full when I auditioned them..

This should close the one and a half year thread. Changed to the following:

* Pioneer 5250 HU.
* JBL CS 12 Inch Subwoofer
* JBL GTA 604 amp.
* JBL 608C Component Speakers up front.
* Stock Blaupunkt Speakers at the rear.

The bass is much tighter, but its not like it causes the Rear view mirrors to shake (which I suppose is a good thing? )

Am not much of an ICE person but I do think that the components are very high on a ghungroo sort of noise, I like the improvement in the mid though.

The HU is fantastic with all slinky looking graphics, settings that I can understand (some of it) and most of all USB!

The remote is a poor quality one especially as compared to the Alpine. How simple is it to source a steering wheel remote for the unit?
