And, if you don't mind spending a little extra (about 2K-3K more in total), You must give a listen to Hertz DSK165 components and DCX165 co-axials. They are worth the extra money.
.
Alpine Type S also competes in JBL CS and Blau GT price band.

If you are considering JBL GTO, Blau OD or Hertz, I would also look at Alpine Tpye R. Blau TH series is useful for shallow depth installs. Your swift has enough room for the OD.

Also if you are considering components for the front check with your installer on the location of the tweeters before you cut and chop the car.

Which one to go for? JBL CS2165C or GTO507C?
GTO a sure fit in my Palio, the CS requires some banging.
Apparently only 500bucks differance.

Ok quick question can I power my front 2 way Sony speakers(peak Power=130w, rated input power=30w) with this amp SONY 554ZR ??

Currently I am using the amp to power rear Pio coaxials & sub.

Is it a good idea or the speakers are too small for this amp ?

You can power these speakers with an amplifier, but please make sure you have the high pass filter ON and frequency at 100Hz.

Listen to all three and decide which suits your taste best.

Thanks buddy........Could u teel me which coaxials to go for rear installation (2way or 3 way)........
and say if i dont go for compo's then will it be ok if i install Coaxial 3-way in front and Coaxial 2-way at rear. [All door installation].
My knowledge bank says that rear ones are for filling only and trebble should come from front.....
Is it possible to install only woofer at rear that is one way speaker.....I don't know how it will sound......

Sam but would this yield better result than current one(i.e. powering rear 6X9 by amp) i.e. will it effectively bring the sound stage to front? The front right now cant take bass that well(may be it will after the amp?) Right now am running HPF on at 125hz through HU

techno, power them and the sub frm amp and the rear frm HU

edit: techno,which car?..grr. alto

emm, ok. A good installer can install bigger speakers on your front doors

and techno, you have a co-ax at the rear and a sub. If aint still happy with the setup ( bass) I think your tuning aint good.

so you want chil chil and booom booom at the same time from the front ?

Get a 6inch compo for your frnt door.

some amp support a sub along with a pair of speakers ( my pa 275 does). If you want all your speakers powered from amp without losing out on fader effect get a better amp..

me right guys?

Arre Baba no cutting shutting of the door.

right now I have put the fader to F4 which gives decent front stage but if its a song which I want to listen loud I need to set the fader to rear as the front cant handle it, so was wondering if powering the fronts with amp would be of any help? Also its mostly me who wants loud music the rear passengers(whenever there are any) hate it when I pump it up

Major criteria got no dough to buy anything new just want to see if doing thsi small change would bring any major difference or not.

Wow, Vipul Sharma must be an awfully attractive man to turn on a speaker.

oops mised this comment. No am very happy with my current setup. its just that i will soon be going to an installer to get the alternator whine removed, this might need new cabling(as cuurent one is not that great) so was toying with this idea
