Mosfats have been around for a while.

You also have Metal Oxide Semiconductor transistors having internal nanoconductors. Or Mosthins.

I recently bought a new santro XL. as an offer from hyundai, i got a Pioneer HU DEH-2950MP and front speakers TS-G1011R. Now planning to have a good rear speakers.

My problem is i cannot go for a bigger speakers as im also planning to install a LPG Gas Conversion Kit and so the gas tank will occupy the whole boot. i feel its better to have 5 1/4 inch speakers in the place which is allotted for speakers by the car manufacturers.

can anybody suggest me a good 5 1/4 inch speakers? my budget is around Rs 5000. it doesnt matter even if it costs a little higher but my priority is good sound quality and size of the speakers.

For 5K you can get some very nice speakers from JBL, Blau, etc.. the only limitation of these speakers will be that they will be bass shy.

Question Looking for a economy 2 channel amp

Car:Alto
HU: Pio 5750
Rear: Pio 6X9
Sub: Sony 12"
Amp: Sony 554(powering sub & rear speakers)
Front: Sony 130w

Recently EVO looked at my system & found am running too many EQs After running flat the SQ has increased but what has also happened is that for same listening levels I have to pump up the volume on HU more.

I fear that while listening to slightly higher volumes (for getting better front sound stage I have faders favouring slightly to front) the front speakers might start clipping.
I belive putting a small amp for front should solve this problem & also improve the SQ.

So I am trying to looks out for a not so expensive 2 channel amp for my fronts
They have following rating:
Peak Power: 130W
rated input power: 30w

I have Sony 2 channel amp XM-552ZR in mind. Any other options available. I dont want anything expensive as I dont think the speakers are worth it.

i did a search in the web. and found these speakers suit me.

JBL - P552, GTO527
Pioneer - TS_E1396, TS-E1376,

But im not sure if these speakers are available in india and how much they cost. and can i use these speakers without amp?

please advise.

no use techno the front 4" are way too weak. I have pio 4" fronts and they will still sound bad with an amp. not worth the effort of the amp. better suggestion is to get better 4" speakers like infinity or maybe even JBL 427.

you can even get the sony 554 ( 4 channel) for about 5K or less. If you can stretch your budget go for Pio 6200 which is about 7K

Ok,then go for the 552, it should take care of your need. Personally i am not a big fan of Sony's for ICE

Ofcourse, it would be much much better than powering your comps from the HU.
