What do u think?
Hey Conan,

hmmm 16cm speakers on all four doors. The wagon r doesnt have very large spaces within the doors so you'll have to put spacer rings and cut holes in the doors.
Problems faced :
1) The grills get loose and in a few months, every time you slam the door, the grill falls off. Worse, the grill falls off when you OPEN the door, leaving your speaker grill on the road for the kutta to pee on.
2) The speakers will be heavy and in a while may get loose and rattle. Also dont forget that there's a good chance it may interfere with the mechanics of the window.

Honestly, I wouldnt do it.

The 5610 is a sensible deck to buy.

Also if you plan to put 3 pairs of speakers, atleast 2 coaxial and no sub, an additional pair of tweeters MAY make the entire sound too sharp and treble friendly. If thats your cup of tea, go ahead.
Honestly, sound is like colour. Percieved beauty, only this time in the ears of the ummm... ummm... belistener.

If you want loads of treble, you go right ahead, never mind what people think. Your car, your sound

Here you go. I have lots of photos, so dont feel shy to ask. All in a days work.

By the way, this is one of the cars we setup at the Mumbai Motor Show a couple of months ago. Enjoy.

Holy mother of automotive audio! What the freakin hell are those things in the rear of the Palio? The last I remember, Indian Airlines were using them on their planes as power!

Cheers Sam,

I would like to bring my car around for some advise and maybe a component or 2. I know you are not soliticing here but I am! :-)

P.S. Maybe when tha Palio comes back I can drop in for a listen too? puhleeeseee. :-)

Hi Sam.

Welcome. I just hope this audio power doesn't lead to accidents on the road :-).

So what are the good audio combinations for Swift Zxi? I am in US right now and would like to explore options of getting the best combinations - speakers, tweeter, subwoofer, amplifier (if any)? Please suggest. Thanks.

What speakers would you advise for a Santro.
Front should be stock size and rear can be made bigger.
Say budget of 10K.
Woofer will be a blessing
Second hand though.
Was thinking of a Cass player with a CD changer, Vipers Pioneer 12" woofer and amp and speakers.
Say around 7K for speakers.
I like the Yellow cone speakers for looks.

Default Midrange Component Spkr, Which one?

Hi Sam,

I have a pair of pioneer tweeters in the front and Lightning Audio Coaxials(6x9) at the rear of my Esteem. The tweeters are fixed near to the sun visors. I feel there is a lack of mid frequencies inside.

So I am thinking of going for a pair of midrange (component) with crossovers in the front. Can you recommend any speaker model which will fit in the front speaker slot of esteem?


The speakers are connected directly to Pioneer DEH-P5750 head unit. Later on i am going for an amp so the speaker as well as the crossover should be able to handle it.
