Exclamation Help for Audio System for Fiesta

Hi,
I got my new ride today and it's time I get the sound system for it. I already have a 12" Subwoofer and a Sony Xplod 4 Channel Amp from my earlier swift.. I was thinking of getting a better sound system this time.

For the Head Unit I liked one by
Alpine iDA-X100
LINK
& a Blaupunkt Hamburg MP68
LINK

with this I was thinking of getting a pair of good component speakers and large speakers for the rear. I need help as to which ones are advisable. I found out JBL components are supposed to be good.

I will be buying my system from Milan Subway in Mumbai and I guess you pretty much get everything there....
Please let me know which ones you think are better and even if there is a better head unit, which one should I go for.

Head Unit Specs:
1. Plays MP3, CD, etc.
2. Plays audio through USB
3. Has an AUX Out for iPods
4. Bluetooth to connect mobile phones

Any help will be good. Budget is Rs. 20000.

Cheers!!

Which sub do you have? Keep in mind the difference in the situation for the sub: in the Swift you had an open boot; in the Fiesta you will have a closed boot, with the rear seats impeding the bass delivery into the cabin. Fiesta would need a bit more power to the sub than the Sony amp can give.

Read up in the Product Discussions thread - you will find a variety of HUs satisfying your specs: Blau, Pio, Kenwood, JVC etc. The Alpine you have listed does not have a CD.

Fiesta has stock locations for 5x7 speakers, I think. Look up the Fiesta installs in the ICE section to know what speakers others have put.

JBL and Illusions components would be my suggestion.
JBL 608c are for bright sound
and
Illusion 6.1 for laid back sound.

JBL will set you back by about 4000 ( without b/w)
while
Illusion will set you back by 7k ( with b/w)
