You should be able to fit GTO637 in the rear of the Viva.

Vid, you don't even need the monoblock later. a 4 channel amp will do. Use the HU's internal amp for the rears, that is in case you are installing a sub too.

So Sam, you are an Iron Maiden fan. Me too.

oki vivek was thinking the same thing. thanks.

But now I'm a little confused for the rear speakers. i thought of going for the GTO507 components now since im not having an amp for the rear channel i thought of going for the GTO527 5" coax.

Sam, which would be the best bet for the rears to fit straight in to the stock locations of the Viva the GTO507, GTO527, GTO637?

Whatever you buy, try and keep in mind future upgrades also. And since you do plan to add a sub later, i feel you can get the coaxials. But if you are particular about compos go for it.

Man I think the Viva takes 6"speakers in the rear, I could be wrong. If it fits then 637 and if not then 527

Vivek, a personal request. We'd like to see you here a bit more.

Ok so i went to sprocket here today to see the possibilities of which speakers to fit in the Viva.
Now he tells me that the front will not accomodate the GTO607 components without cutting. He said even if he puts the spacer ring the effect will still not be good. The sprocket guy advises:

GTO 507 (front door)
GTO 637 (rear speaker pods) the guy says these will fit in the vivas rear pod.
CS60.4 amp

So now is this ok. I'm getting a little confused.

Yes this is fine. Go for it. Next step, add a monoblock and a subwoofer. Let us know how it sounded and a few pictures if possible. All the best and enjoy your music and remember 2 things

1) Have safe sex (you will see, this will happen more after the good system is put in the car). Be safe, not sorry. Rubber is best not only on wheels.
2) Dhoom responsibly.

So now is this ok. I'm getting a little confused.
the front doors of viva can easily take 607 with out any modification and will fit with oem spacers which comes with the car......and some damping matriel to further improve the sound.....with the same.....

about the rear if you used oem locations then the 6.5 inchs can easily be accomodated but 6x9 can also be fitted by removing the oem cover and putting 1/2 inch mdf formers 6x9 can easily be fitted in the back .....I have myself installed it in my viva will try to post the pics of the same...

The rear compos(GTO507) would be powered by the HU.

Will this affect the sound and shift the soundstage to the front?

Also, Navin ji i noticed the Vivas rear deck isnt that big its actually just a fraction bigger than the acccent's.
The only thing i guess is it wont be removable once I put an MDF deck. do you think the JBL GTO937's can be considered in that case.
Any other issues there may be with the notch back?
Really with cheap amps such as the 552 avaialble the only reason one should use only one amp is to simply the wiring - something I greatly recomend.

yes your idea (using the 60.4 for the sub and fronts) will work well.

as far as the rear deck goes it all depends on your needs. if you need to lift the rear deck using just the hatch hydraulics it wont be possible if the deck is made of MDF. One can go in for a custom FRP rear deck but they are expensive (my guess is such a deck will cost more than the 6x9s) which is both light and stiff. Such a deck however must also be well clamped when the hatch is closed. Remember it is light so a 6x9 is capable of vibrating the whol deck (since the deck is stuff - if it is locked in place when the hatch is closed you wont have a problem).

Navinji thats what i was looking at simplifying the setup with a single amp.

I wasnt considering the sub for the moment as i didnt want to lose out on boot space at all. thought to add the sub later on.

I had gone to the store to hear the various speakers. The person at sprocket told me that the accent front door will not take in the 6" components and i would have to go for 5.25" GTO507. The rear would take the 6" coax(GTO637). I was under the impression it was the other way around 6" front and 5.25" rear. I need to confirm which i can go for the front and rear before purchasing as there are mixed opinions on this from various stores.

Also what i noticed was the deck isnt that big like the Octavias and the boot is still accessible with the deck down.

The GTO937 would have been perfect for me. What if i go for a mdf deck which is detachable and removable by hand and not the hatch hydraulics?
Will this affect the sound in the case of a notch back and have any vibrations?

vid both the speakers in the viva are both the same size I dont think why your installer is saying the front and the rear speakers would differ if the rear can take 6.5 then the front can easily take them also ..... but mounting the 6 x 9 on the rear shelf tray if will work fine but the tray will rattle a but I would reccomnd the 6.5 in the oem pods a better choice and add a sub later which will complete the sound....u can use a shallow sub for the job....which will take less space and provide you with full boot space....

vid6639...if you're interested, i can suggest you an installer who will replace your existing rear tray with a MDF tray, and will still work with your hatch hydraulics etc...

Hey NIP,

Thanks a lot for your help. I'll be getting the installation done from Anwar here in bangalore who has done for my cars.

Could you tell me how the mf tray will work with the hatch as the weight will be more for teh tray.

vid6639...dunno abt the weight, but i've seen one install in a skoda and the tray actually splits in half with a hinge...really neat work...and looks better than the original (IMO). this was done at Eb Bass by Asif & Crew.
