If you like the Alpine coax over the JBL comps get them. Remember this is for you and not for your installer, friend or anyone else.

driven from an HU the coax might sound "better" as it would be a bit louder. so make sure you are comparing at similar volume levels (do not read the volume level on the HU but listen in a car and then decide).

I prefer the tube sub for 2 reasons.

usually the tube and box subs have the same driver. the tube can be tuned to be less boomy by plugging the port with clean socks and tube subs are lighter than box subs if you even need the trunk to carry bags.

Hi!



1. I would prefer the Alpine, but many the pioneer. It's a matter of personal taste.

2. Regardless of brand, it's unlikely that a co-axial would sound better than a component. Did you hear them on the same HU? In any case, for the front of your car, components are a better choice as you can place the tweeters in a better position. A co-axial speaker's tweeter will fire at your legs in most probability.

3. This Forums most famous amp

4. To answer this it would really help to know which car you have. What Car? Basically is it a hatchback or a 3 box car?

All of this is quite achievable in 25k..

Cheers

Geez mclaren, how do you keep track of all of us.

I was working on a long post and then forum was down for service so i lost it. Sam is working on ....well something else :-)

I would guess Autophile (JB) would be with Gunbir whose family has been so tragically struck. God bless them.

Smile toddi ur advice ....

hi
thanx guys for ur pearls of sounddum and ya sam sir i own a SWIFT......
And ya sam sir it was diff head units the sales guy(sachin) used for demo of Alpine coax(alpine HU) ....and JBl combo(pioneer HU)....POOr me......


As if now i have bought Alpine 9843-for 9K
and Alpine 6'5 Co-Ax for 3k

LEkin kya hai......as soon as i exceed volume 25+(min 0-35 max)...with bass setting high.....the sound is distorted......(i loathe it...... )...........iam nuts abt this.............HELP ME

So iam left with following to be advised on.

1.should i install jbl components in front(cant afford infinity(10 K) and shift my Alpine Coax to the back.......will this satisfy me
or
do i need an Amplifier with above combo.......to cheer me up.....

2. Bass tube OR Sub-woofer.......this is for sam sir....


and lastly i can strech upto 30k.......still left with 13-18 k......advice me tu spend wisely.

Warning: This is the first and last warning. Before posting any further go through the announcment section. Your future posts will be deleted if don't follow the rules.

Install JBL in the front and sub in rear add a 4 channel amp to drive these. then use HU to drive alpine coax in the rear. enjoy. Sam is enjoying too, not sure if his is limited to music though. :-)

JBL in front 4K. Amp 4K. Sub 6K. wires 3K. total = 17K. see we are experts at spending your money! LOL
