Welcome back,
Your dreams were your ticket out.

Welcome back,
To that same old place that you laughed about.

Well the names have all changed since you hung around,
But those dreams have remained and they're turned around.

Who'd have thought they'd lead ya (Who'd have thought they'd lead ya)
Here where we need ya (Here where we need ya)

Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, welcome back,
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

Also,please suggest RMS peak and whether single/dual coil sub I should go in for..I prefer Kicker sub..how's CVR10 for my speaker set up?
I am not planning to buy a separate mono block amp for the sub..only a 4 channel amp for the component speakers.

Thanks,
Suraj
Hi Suraj,

12" on the rear deck may not fit in a city, stick to 10". You have 2 sets of components and a woofer. The only way you can connect all of this to a 4ch amp, is to run both components in parallel (No fader control) and the other 2 channels to be bridged (if single coil sub) or both channels into a dual coil sub. Frankly both cases will sound the same (as they will be on the same channel) so i wouldn't spend extra on a dual coil unless I had a seperate amp.

Cheers

I toh came back early, esp to talk tech with Navin. If the girlfriend reads this, solid trouble will happen.

I was quoting a song from the 60s called Welcome Back by the Loving Spoonful. The song became famous as the theme song of a TV show called Welcome Back Kotter which starred a very young John Travolta.

Off late the buzz word for this topic is "BUZZING"

Hey Aseem,

No my friend, this thread isn't about an ideal audio system. Just a thread where we offer advice to people on their car audio system. This thread was created for deviations.
This is the thread which the moderators would have surely wiped out long ago, if Navin and I weren't such nice people....

Yeh Gaadi ke Audio System ka dhaaga hai. Toot hi nahi sakta hai.

OK chal chal, this is getting out of hand. The moderators will react soon now

Besides even I'm having trouble keeping up lol. Let's start again.

REALITY CHECK:

This is a thread called "Car Audio Advice" on the In Car Entertainment section. This is aptly named as Navin and Sam offer advice on Car music systems and thus entertain themselves.

REALITY CHECK

Hi Sam/ Navin,

Am getting delivery of my Swift VXI in the immediate future - was hunting around for a good head unit and speakers. The dealer as well as the grey market chaps were advising me against using the spkr. enclosures in the door panels of the Swift as they would sound crappy.

Have you seen any problems with installing 6" spkrs. on all 4 doors? I saw your post earlier where U recommend it.

Am planning on going in for the Pioneer DEH-6750 (Rs.7500) 2 6" Sony's for the front(Rs.1050) and 6" JBL GTO's for the rear (Rs.2300) else JBL 6 x 9 for the rear (Rs.2700). Will that be a good set-up? Are the prices decent?

Thanks,

Vinay

Hi Vinay,

Firstly welcome. I can see this is your first post, so maybe you ought to put up a hello at the Introduce yourself section.

I recommend 2 pairs of 6" in the doors for the swift. it's what they were designed for in the first place. Please do not ruin the interior of a sexy car like the swift by putting 6X9 ovals in ugly ways.
Prices are all decent, but you will find better results if all 4 speakers are identical. This way the tonality doesnt change, from the front to the back. Also you have uniform power handling.
I suggest you put 4 identical speakers if you're on a budget. The pioneer 6750 is probably the deck with the fanciest display at 7500/- but soundwise, i think it's a little harsh. Try a Sony cd unit thats the same price too, plus you get warranty and bill.

Cheers and enjoy

besides why go grey market when the price difference does not warrant it. there is no white market Pioneer yet. Stick to a system that has as few lights as possible that way you can atleast hope the manufacturer has put more money into the sound. Old saying "if you want lights get a Christmas Tree".

my guess is your rear deck is vibrating. have a friend touch the deck firmly when you play the system to see if that damps the vibrations.

another option is that you have turned the bass up so much that the bass woofer is being run out of it's physical limitations. you have 2 choices reduce the bass or get a bigger woofer.

report your findings and we'll take the next step.
