Hey Sam,

Need a help buddy. I saw this sexy looking JBL active bass tube @ http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/1306.html. Is it available in India. And if yes, what's the price?

\N

lancer, see what Sony HU you can get for about 6K. then spend about 3.5-4K for the front and 2-2.5K for the rear. Sony has quite a few models. Sam can help with JBL recom.

My suggestion is that you get another nicer pair, preferable components (5.25" for the front) and put the sony's in the rear.
You could run these speakers off the head unit and get an active sub, but what would really be fun, is to get a decent 4ch amplifier, parallel connect the front and rear speakers to 2channels of the amplfier, and use the remaining 2 channels bridged into a 12" subwoofer in a box. You could either make a nice box, or buy a boxed subwoofer. Also see post #216 in this thread for selection of subs

Happy listening!
Thanks Sam. Now the big question - where do I mount the subwoofer? There's plenty of space in the Safari, but the one thing I do not want to do is to clutter up the loading area, which is good enough to roll out a mattress and sleep in if we tip the rear seats down and over.

Is it possible to mount a subwoofer on the roof???? It might sound a bit incongruous, but then I havent had a s/w in any of my cars yet hence the question...basically I want a s/woofer but I dont want it to take up space on the floor.

Also Navin - the Sonys I bought recently were 6 1/2 inch or 16 cms 3-way affairs. The sound's quite nice, but then I'm no expert in that Dept.

1. No I have not yet seen a subwoofer mounted on the roof. Maybe Sam, Aseem or Vivek have. Nothing is impossible but it owuld require serious bodywork to the rook to make room for a subwoofer.
something like this...
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Cf5L0L0...g=178650&avf=N
or
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Cf5L0L0...g=178750&avf=N
or
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Cf5L0L0...50&I=044QB2124
or
http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Cf5L0L0...0&I=044T1012SS

2. If I were you I would make a box the width of the safari's back. This box would take about 8-10" of the depth of the Safari and run the width of the car behind the rear seat.

3. If you like the Sonys keep them. Please remember 3 rules (these are not guidelines).
a) they are your ears, your music, your car
b) it is your money
c) any advise you get is coloured by the expereinces of others

Sounds good. Let me check it out - the only issue there would be when the rear seats have to be folded down and up. The S/W may end up crushed behidn the front seats then..

Well, there's plenty of vertical space, so I thought - why not? I do not want to lose floor space.

maybe you can make you sub movable. that is when you are folding the rear seats down the sub moves and sits up against the front seats (if they are still in their regular position).

A tapered box (see options 4 of the 4 links above) might be best suited for your needs.

Just got back from Darjeeling!!!!
Hi Rehaan,

The only cheapskates making compos without crossovers are sony
Well, actually there is a little crossover, just a capacitor. That sony component isnt really a component speaker, its actually a coaxial speaker with the parts taken apart. Literally.
The end result is that the midrange, is actually playing in full range and the capacitor just prevents the low frequencies from coming out of the tweeter. There's no crossover point, no seamless transition nothing. Just the mental satisfaction of having a removable tweeter. I'd advise against that set.

Cheers

Oh yes the btx 250 is available. The price earlier used to be 22500 now its about 14000/-
Let me warn you it looks hot and it's active, but somehow..... I didnt quite like the sound. I'd much rather put a passive tube with an external amp.

Hi LM!!
If i had to choose between a poi, sony and JVC, it would be any sony HU.
For the Zen, factory fitment JBL GTO426e, MRP 2500 including VAT. If you want to upsize, you could fit a GTO526e MRP 3250 incl VAT, but you would have to lose the original door grill.
For the rear, you would use a GTO936e, MRP 4750 incl VAT.
Alternatively you could use the CS series, cheaper and not bad sounding too.

Enjoy!!

Installing PBX in IBM on Sunday too not fun. Prefer my 9 to 5 in Delhi a lot more (no offense to bangloreans/0.

Finally saw Sam acknowledging that the 250 bass tube from JBL doesnt sound nice. For the first time Sam on the record admitted that JBL product doesnt sound nice

This brings us back to the JBL components being too bright topic When are you posting to fix the compos???
