it is only recently that a few 2 DIN HUs have sound quality apporaching that of 1 DIN HUs. A 1 DIN HU can give you all you want. Other than different aesthetics 2 DIN HUs dont offer you much more in terms of sound qulaity often a lot less.

Besides with your 20K budget stick to 1 DIN and spend the money saved on amps and speakers.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Finally i got it done from Gyro. HU is alpine xda-300, and bull components in front and coax in rear. Sounds quite nice particularly vocal and light music. Later on I did realize that rear coax are not adding any value , because system sounds better without them. Total damage 24K. cheers.

Good Equipment and Congrats.

The coax may be of no use if you are on the driver seat. That is only for the rear passengers got hold of some music. You should be considering your rear passengers too

Guys,

somehow i cant see your posts though i have received them in mail as i am subscribed to the thread.The last one could see is from naveen on 18th March. is there some technical issue? or I am checking wrong way? can someone educate me about this?

Ok coming back to ICE, apologies to all, actuallly it is alpine iDA-X200 and not XDA-300 as I wrote before.

"Good Equipment and Congrats.

Thanks NANDAN: yes , you are right that coax is for rear seat passenger but what I felt was that it was spoiling the sound image from the front components for the occupant of the driver seat. SQ was getting negatively affected. So I keep the fader high for fronts when I drive.
