Hi guys,

I have booked an Indica Turbo and would like to know a cheap, good mp3 system for my car < 10 K.

2 or 4 speakers dont really matter. I just want decent quality sound. Dont need too much of bass or volume. Cost is the main criterion. It should be problem free also.

hey dude try to stretch it to about 12k.

you can get a head unit for 6 k.rear speakers for about 3.5-4k and front 4 inch/ 5 inch coaxials for 1.5-2k

so total will be around 12 k.

JBL, Blaunpank , pioneer , sony are some of the brands you could get.id suggest u hear each speaker and buy which ever sounds best to you.

i think you should get the JBL 606.its a 6 inch component and will set you back by about 6k.you could get a pioneer head unit.

i didnt quite understand your post.do you want components for front and rear or just one pair.i think u need jus one pair but then wht u gonna do about the rear speakers ??

Rayden rule no. 1 - There is no such thing as Cheap & Good. It can either be Cheap & Nasty or Good & Expensive!!

yeah thats right i just meant one set of components. yaar budget crunch hai
and since i am really new to this i wanted to know from you guys if just one set of compos on front would be enough. just looking for clear good sound.

also i am a little confused about component speakers. so a set like the jbl 606 would contain 2 woofers and 2 tweeters right? one for each door on the front? and 2 crossovers?

You are correct, any crossover set would comprise of these items.
The JBL 606Ce has been replaced by the GTO607C. Nothing wrong with buying a 606, but you should get it at a discount.

In fact get teh 606 befor ethey run out esp if you get it at a discount. given that the price difference between the 606 and 636 was about 2K if you get a 2K discount on the 606 at 4K they are fantastic value. I am shameless aren't I! :-)

I like dealers/manufacturers to make money so they can serve us in the long run. I like everyone to have the best sound for as little as possible. I like China for making this all possible! :-)

4 speakers in the front wont sound bad at all. You could put a 6X9 in the rear parcel shelf, but the parcel shelf is rather thin ABS and WILL vibrate.
Cheers
Hi Sam...This info is exactly what I had been looking for. Thanks so much! How much would the 'not so expensive but decent' speakers cost approx, also which brands. I dont want the speakers in the rear, just the 4 front ones.

Cheers!

LBM.. you just made my day...:-) I was always under the impression that cost was for a single set and not a pair. Does the same thing hold for Coax also so for GTO637 for 4000 do i get a pair or a single peice.

Hey guys....please help me in selecting the correct 4"speakers to be located in the dash and a pair of 5.25" speakers in the front doors of my Indica...nothing fancy...but just to listen to some good classical music and a bit of jazz and blues! Please give the model nos and the prices in mumbai. Preferably all within 4k.

I was initially looking at the JBL GTO606Ce or the GTO607, but since the Indica front doors have provisions for a 5.25" speaker, is it recommended to go for the GTO507 instead?
