You can consider a 1cu.ft sealed enclosure,wont take much boot space.
@XetaGLGRocks-10k for the 1004 must be grey market prices,isnt it?

@DjNik : That is indeed the grey price.
@Senindra : I still suggest that go for the front compo, rear fills and 4 ch amp. Add the "Dabba wala" Sub later.
Call me when you are in Kolkata. Maybe we can go down to glix to check if they can make a custom enclosure.

See the amps have to go into your boot.
The sub can be done at side locations ( Any good installer can do that)

Now for 30k
7k is gone for illusions

So you have 23k
Damn I'm so happy.

Lets Start

JBL 1004e - 10k
Ground Zero GZTW 12MKČ - 5.5 / 6k
JBL GTO 938 - Rear fills ( Powered through the HU) - 4k

Install + Wiring 2500
Enclosure ( Get in touch with B&T - He might get it made with the sub - He is the distributor for Ground Zero) - 2k approx
Around 24k

Not bad. I exceeded by only 1k!

While you are at it, get damping material, speaker wire and RCA's from B&T too.

I second that, get these from B&T as well.
My only concern is the installation. Where will he have the install done?

Well as this topic somewhat discusses the ICE situation in calcutta It would be interesting to know the good/bad installers in kolkata and where did you all get your install done.Sorry if it is a bit off topic but it can surely help senindra select a good installer.
I am yet to come across a good installer in calcutta and for that reason my car was somewhat a DIY but needed help from the mechanic to open up the pannels,connection with battery etc.

Hmmm...Most of you are suggesting the same stuff so I am not getting confused, thats the good part. The bad part is why are you after my dikki ?! :P

The problem with this would be going to some one in Kolkata with all that handing him over and just charging him for labour. He wont be too happy with that. However, if I decide to cancel going to RM at Ooty I might decide to drive down to Bombay just for the ICE install. Never seen the city anyways.

Glix does decent installs, provided you take the stuff from them.

Since that was not so in my case, I had the installation done by a Guy who did Nura's install. He is a service Engineer for Alpine in Kolkata, and does good installs. Only don't expect the tuning to be done by him. He only listens to "Shehri babu" and "Babuji zaradheere chalo" and believes in SPL.

He stocks excellent quality speaker wires, power cables etc. Even during installation he meticulously checks to see that there are no loose ends.

Normally you need to call him up and schedule a Sunday for the work.
You would need to take the car to "Moto Mania" near Ballygunge Phari Haldiram.
He charges around 1.5 to 2k for the install. But the install is worth it.

That may solve your 'dikki' problem too. If you identify the installer in advance, they could potentially prepare a custom sub enclosure (fibreglass??) to snug-fit into a corner of the boot and keep it ready before you reach. Such an enclosure would not significantly eat into the boot space.

Plus and this is a biiig plus - you may be able to bribe the hermit to tune your setup. From what I hear, he is a simple man with simple needs to keep his parched throat moistened.

Hey Buddy
I have a pic from gamerno1's gallery.
Sorry for using your pic dude.

I have marked a region where the custom sub can be installed.
Wont eat a lot into your dikky.

Contact B&T and ask him if he can make something like that in a location like mentioned.
