1. do you need your trunk regularly?
2. what is your budget?
3. what music do you listen to?

I'm sure if you answer these queries Sam, Autophile and co will hook you up fast.

Amps and speakers is a huge topic stick around and ask questions and soon you'll be offering advice too.

Main wahi toh bolta hoon, why do all these people waste time with engines vengines and all here.

Mate, Navin's right. We need musical preference, budget preference and sexual preference to offer you any advice.
One of those is an option, but i cant remember which.

Cheers

1. No.
2. 30K
3. :confused ? soul stirring ? LOL

Point1: in case i need to take out the spare wheel, or put some large suitcase, i should be in a position to take out whatever hanging in there, all by myself.
Point 2: I'm planning to go for separate Amp for Sub, but i'll go for Amp and Sub later
point 3: if it is for Subs, then i don't want boom boom, i want sufficient Bass heard even at lower volumes

OK So here it goes:

30k is fairly decent. Get yourself a head unit with a CDplayer in it. You will find many options in this forum between 5 to 8k.You can buy any brand, but we seem to prefer Alpine, Pioneer and Sony (not necessarily in that order)
Buy a set of components (6") for the front. Buy coaxial speakers for the rear (6") all 4 speakers will put you back by about 8 to 9k. Always prefer to buy speakers from a specialized SPEAKER manufacturer.
Buy a nice 4 channel amp - 5k to 9k, depending on the brand, Alpine, Sony,JBL, etc. 2 Channels for the bass and 2 for the speakers.
If you like all round sound with no fader, you can connect all 4 speakers to 2 channels. otherwise, the front components to one pair of channels, the rear speakers directly on the HU and the woofer, bridged to the other pair of channels.
When your budget goes up a little later, buy a small amp or a monoblock too later. That way you can amplify all your speakers.
And buy a tube woofer. That way you use up the whole boot, but can remove it quite easily when required. The most preferred tube in this forum is the JBL CS1200T for 6.5k.

I'm not gay, I've got quite a penchant for women as you will discover eventually. By the way what speaker is that in your avatar?

Some brands like Phoenix are big in the USA. Others, well i know they're not available and even the few that ae, arent easy to come by. By the way thats not Bose, it's Boss.

Sam i 've some queries,

1.Components consist of a woofer, a separate tweeter and a XO
6" woofer will be fitted in the door provision, where do i have to fit Tweeter and where is XO placed?

2. Should i go for Infinity's ref6010cs (will it fit in Swift) or JBL's GTO606Ce, how much 6010cs costs?

3. which one among a 2-way amp or a monobloc is better for powering a Sub-Woofer?


As far as the Speaker in my avtar, i would say "yeh is speaker ko nahin pehchantaa!!, yeh PSPO nahin jantaaa!!"
its Kappa621i, i don't know whether its available in India, atleast its not listed on www.fxaudio.com

It looked like a older Infinity. it's been a while since we had that speaker. Has been replaced by http://www.infinitysystems.com/caraudio/product.aspx?ProdId='KAPPA62.7I'&Ser=KAP&Cat=MEL

1) Yes You are right about components. Woofer and XO will fit inside door. Tweeter can be placed somewhere on the door or dash board.

6010cs and 606ce are both excellent compos, both different sounding and at different budgets. lets just say if you like your music dynamic you'll like JBL and if you like refined then you'll like infinity. Navin has posted a detailed review on his personal 5010cs. the product is almost identical to the 6010cs, save for the woofer size.
The 606Ce is for 6500 and the 6010cs is for 9500/-
Maybe, perhaps you may also find the 6000cs (a 2004 infinty product) at a discount in certain accessory stores.
3. a Monoblock amplifier, designed for running a subwoofer will always do a better job.

30K....
HU: 10K - Sony or Pio.
Front and rear Speakers: 10K - JBL 606 and JBL 636
Amp and sub: 10K - JBL 1200T with sony 504

Infinity would extend your budget or eliminate the amp and sub.
