Seriously though, I think you can ask Mr. Golcha at Slverline Kolkata. I dont have the number at hand but you can find it at the back of an autocar magazine.

Sam, I'm planning to fit my Pioneer 4-Channel GM-6200F Amplifier under the front passenger seat. Need your final opinion on this or you recomend any modification?



I've purchased 15 mts of 14 gauge speaker wires, do I need more for the installation? Equipments which I'm going to fit are,


1> Sony CDX-GT400 (HU)
2> 4 pairs of Boston Acoustics front and rear speakers
3> 1 Rockford Fosgate 12" sub
4> Pioneer 4-Channel GM-6200F amp
5> EFX amp wiring kit
6> 14 gauge speaker wires (15 mts, do I need more) ?



Whatever you recomend I'm going to do that.

Now I understand why rsjaurr mentioned about component speakers.... Well rsjaurr, none of my speakers are of component type. I'll wire the 2 front, 2 rear and the sub with that 14 gauge 15 mts cable. Now tell me do I need more cables?

I have another question regarding amp remote turn on just to increase my level of understanding. Is remote turn on used by the amp to switch ON and OFF the input power of the amp from the batterry, or it is used to switch ON and OFF the output signal of the amp and the amp consumes power from the batterry whenever the car ignition is on.

You will need 18-20 mtrs for sure!..

Remote turn on, when wired up, ensures the Amplifier switches on ONLY when you switch on the HU ... and shuts down when you power down the HU

Default Amateur CAR ICE Build

Hi Sam and everyone else!

I have been researching this wonderful thread for a while now and I have also been doing a lot of study into building my own first ICE unit. I have a Palio 1.2 Sports in Bangalore. This is what I have picked out to mate:

The HU: Alpine 9847R - with 3 2v pre-outs.
Front Components: JBL GTO 507
Rear Oval Speakers: Infinity reference series 9603i (found it significantly superior to the JBL GTO937).

No Amp as of now...am planning to build this up very slowly and surely...as and when I learn the trade.

Is that a good build to start with? Anything I should substitute? Am I spending too much? i listen to a wide range of music, so clarity is as important as bass.

Will really appreciate your inputs! Plan to set this up through the middle of this week.

cheers!

Hi Venky, welcome to TBHP.

Your ICE does look great. I love Alpine's and Infinity and would love to have a setup of these one day But if it was me, I would haev had an Infinity compo at teh frnt.

An amp; start with a 4 good channel amp. You can try Pio, JBL (CS or GTO series) or Alpine ones. Some good Pio amps would be 6100, 944 and JBL has CS 60.4 or if you can the GTO75.4!

A four channel amp as your Hu has 3 preamp outs(frnt/rear/sub). You can add a sub later on (with a mono amp or bridge 2 channels of teh 4 channel amp to power it).

Hi all,

I got my Lancer painted black yesterday and now planning for a good ICE.

I bought an Alpine 9856, and yet to decide on the speakers. I would love to have an all Alpine speaker set, but I guess it will work out heavy on the pocket.

Thought I get the JBL-GTO-506CE (compo) for the fronts and a good Alpine oval for the rear. No amps at the moment, but will have them too in a couple of months.

JK please recommend a good Alpine speaker for the rear and where I could get them in Chennai or Bangalore. Please give me the price of the same.

As for the amp I dont have enough dough to go for an Alpine kit, do I go for a Pioneer or JBLs to drive the 4 speakers and the Sub.

- Harmon
