Meantime, go through the HU options available from http://www.clarion.com.sg/products/2...incd/index.cfm and let me know what interests you... My personal favouries in Clarion are DXZ756MC and DXZ656MP... They don't offer full color display but are ready for Ipod connection [they have those RGB 769 selectable colors tho].... Take your pic from the site and i'll get you the price... [note: i'm not too keen on using this feature or its presence wouldn't make a big difference to me, but the DXZ756MC model has a Music Catcher facility, something that can hold upto 6 cds' songs in its memory].... If you want a HU with the looks, get a DXZ856MP.... Mast looking..

I have a 2004 Alpine catalog with prices quoting Alpine's basic cd HU at 11990 [CDA 9826], and casette player at 6990[TDM 7582E]. I listened to CDA 9827 and its sounds jhakaas at 14900/- [bargainable]...

I'm very very confused myself on what to pick for my Indica and i'm waiting for Sam & Navin's final nod on the JBL GTO Ovals or the BLAU's THx/ODx series ovals... And today on the net, I saw a Rockford Fosgate T1693C Ovals [power handling = 110 rms].... supposed to be awesome or not is what I want to know....

Sam/Navin, where are ya fellassss???
hi k_ajay
I went thru the Clarion website you gave me, they look very costly man !!
If you are looking for interchangeable colors check out the following one from Blaupunkt - Monterrey MP35. Even this one has few interchangeable 4096 colors between all the combinations of RGB.
http://www.midwestelectronics.com/pr...2d1c9bbc541be6

A car accessories dealer is giving me this for around Rs 7500 - Rs 8000 with warranty. What do you say?

1) Get a good HU with 3 RCA outs 4V each... VFM system Pioneer 6650 for 7.6k and good high end Sony 7700 for 10.5k

2) Good Components for the front... possibly not Sony for 4.5 k as they dont have a crossover... Sam mentioned Components from JBL... Please specify the MODEL number and the price range...

3) Good triaxials at the rear... GTO series for 3.5 k thats fine

4) Good 4 channel amp... try Sony for 5k... else if money go for alpine... Which model of Alpine??? cost???

5) Go for a base tube... Whats the price and make???
In this post Aseem, which model of GTO series ur talking about and how do they sound for 3.5 K ? Please lemme know.

Hello Z!

If you cannot afford the GTO series from JBL, try the CS series. They are good quality ad affordable. Try the CS396e for the rear and the CS205e for the front.
The speaker i had recommended earlier (GTO426e) is a 4" speaker. Probably the best 4" speaker in the market.
Cheers

maybe later go in for lightning audio triaxials.....

btw howz da blaupunkt tx 369.1...will be gettin it free from my bros ikon as hez buyin somethin else....
Hi!
A couple of things. Do not compare a sony woofer to a rockford, or any other speciality woofer. They are not in the same league of performance, or pricing.

Now- If you're going to use a 222 to power your sub, there's no need to buy an expensive subwoofer. It's silly. I suggest you buy a cheaper pioneer subwoofer or something. it's not bad for the money.

Second- if you plan to connect BOTH 10" woofers in parallel & bridge the amplifier, it will be an overload and the amplifier will not last very long. I dont recommend you do that.

Lastly - The Blaupunkt tx369.1 is a pretty goot speaker, if you pay for it. For free it's amazing

I was in da assumption that only the JBL GTO936 rocks [which I still want to so badly buy] but the BLAUs have taken me by surprise...

I need your help in figuring out which of the 3 [2 of the Blaus and the JBL] would be better, and if they would mate well [well, , you know what I mean] with the JBL GTO 606c or 506Ce components [this is THE compo I'm definitely getting, unless BLAU comes up with a higher rms output].....

Btw, Sam, the Chennai JBL dealer is a good friend of mine now, [CATS, Sridhar] and hes a great guy.

Thanks

Hey! Sorry Yaar i must have missed the post. Ok so here goes.
I always prefer to put the same brand, same series products upfront and the rear. It gives a more uniform soundstage, rather tha have two totally different sounds coming at you from the front and rear.
Since you have already decided on JBL fronts, i suggest JBL rears.Guess that answers your question. Similarly for the Blaupunkt. If you like the Blaupunkt rears, i suggest blaupunkt fronts too. Different speakers have different sounds and nobody can really tell you which ones better. It depends on YOUR ears only.
However as a thumb rule- companies that specialize in making speakers (no decks cd players etc) generally make better speakers, as this is all they do.

Sridhar is really helpful and sweet. Do give him my regards.
