Congratulations Raj on getting upgraded ICE for your Scorpio. The configuration appears to be new. The Pioneer 5050 HU is among the best-time will prove it.Do keep us posted about the VTREK component speaker's performance.

+ 1 to that. You are absolutely correct.

Having used them myself, I can safely claim that Sony's are pathetic sounding!

when i bought those speakers 1 year back, i knew ABSOLUTELY nothing about ICE. hence the mistake. even if i do consider replacing them, that will be my last priority!

so Raj, nice set up you have made. I guess I had seen this JBL bass tube some time back also in some of the pics shared by you.

Loss of steering volume controls is something one can sacrifice for the sound. I guess this doesn't impact the warranty of the car.

You didnt try for DVD player (just an option to add LCD screen later ?)
