Default What speaker in imported cars?

Hi!

Someone had emailed me asking me for this link. Though this is mostly cars in the USA and JBL-specific, it can be useful for those people with odd imported cars.

How much did you pay for the tray?

Sam, Navin, I think one of you had recommended some box volume sometime back for the 936e? Do you guys remember what it was because as Sam said if boxes will be better then boxes it is. Who cares about luggage space. I need good sound.

Hi Navin / Sam,

Since you guys strongly recommend for Alpine 9830 / 9833 as good head-units I decided to opt for one but I am unable to find it at their site. Maybe they discontinued production of these HU's. Could you please suggest an alternative to the 9830/9833 (if I am not wrong about model numbers)? Also a good and compatible CD changer and Amplifiers to go with this head unit and JBL speakers with Sub setup please. I want good quality sound in my setup. Budget is around 30-35k. The car is a Palio BTW.

Thanks

ya moral these HU's have been discontinued globally..i suggest u look around in the local market as there are plenty of them available..going by the problems with the newer models i suggest u either stick to 9830/9833 or else look for HUs from a different brand..stick to a cd changer from alpine itself..and as far as speakers are conserned if ur specific about JBL,then depending on the speaker pods u can go in for GTO506ce(5.25'') or GTO606ce(6.5'') components in the front and at the back u can use GTO636e or GTO936e coaxials..as far as the sub is concerned u can go in for GTO100b or 1200b..and as far as the amps are concerned the sony combo of 504&502 is the best VFM..hope that helps u to carry on with ur research until u hear from sam..

Thanx Mclaren. Some good points. Will wait for a line from Navin and Sam before I decide.

The 9830 and 9833 and 9835 have been discontinued. There is some discussion about their newer models having the glidetouch controls giving trouble. from the symptoms i have heard about (on other forums) this trouble seems to come from the power logic.

If you dont want glidetouch i'd strongly recommend that you lay your hands on a 9833 or 9830 before stocks disapper.

However the above mentioned problem disappers when either or both of the soutions given below are used.

1. Switch of the internal power amp and use an external power amp.
2. connect battery and remote leads to the battery which means one can accidently leave the tape deck on as the ignition switch is bypassed.

the problems with the 9853 and 9855 (replacements of the 9830 and 9833) usually have to do with CD's getting stuck in the deck if the deck is powered of with a CD inside. When the deck is turned back on, the existing CD will not eject. Alpine might have fixed this on later batches but i am not sure what the batch numbers are.

Hi Moral,

I believe you are looking at too expensive of headunit as per your budget. After buying alpine headunit there is nothing much left for speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers. Try to even out budget allocations to each component.
