Hi Sun,

I've just had the opportunity to hear out the Alpine MRP 550 V series amps versus the Pio 307F.

Slim size - very the Alpine is neat, to say the least.

By the demo given, the MRP550 does a far better job as well.

Since this topic was discussed, thought i'll share my recent experience.

Trust this helps.

Cheers

Default 2 ten inchers better or 1 twelve incher better

What would sound better and be easier to install/connect. 2 ten inchers or a single 12 incher on the parcel tray?

Raghav, getting the 4 6X9s on a parcel tray in a Santro wouldn't be exactly 'spreading it out'. lol.

Besides, it would hardly make any difference in terms of SQ - I can picture an overcrowded setup.

IMHO, it would be better to leave a pair of 6X9s at home, buy a pair of components, install a 4-channel amplifier to drive the components and 6X9s.

???

The Pioneer 307F is a sub and the Alpine 550 is an amp.

Depends on which 10s v/s which 12. Two 10s will be louder, more expensive and need more amplification as a single similar 12.

After reading plenty of posts, Im narrowing down my selection to LBLs or Infinity Kappas 6" ers for the doors and a JBL amp (4 channel). The only problem is the Sub. According to a friend of mine, the Optra Magnum has something like a seat belt pipe running thru the parcel tray and so fitting a sub in the parcel tray wouldnt be possible. Is that true?

Putting in an enclosure would be a second option but since the car would always be picking up someone and would be storing luggage, this would become a hassle over time. The biggest problem is actually my Dad who will not approve of the enclosure in the trunk. I already went through hell putting one in my old WagonR.

1) Can you please advise me how I could install a woofer in the parcel tray?

2) What would be the pros and cons and which woofer would be preferable.

3)My choices were the Pioneer 307F (free air) and also some of these slim Alpine/Blaupunkt woofers.

4) Also, how are illusion audio speakers quality-wise?

5) Are they better or equal to the infinity and JBLs?

Please Help !!!

Thanks
SUNNY

i think gunbir had done an install with an MDF board behind the back seat and the sub firing into it.
brands have their standards and characteristics. you may also want to check out ID, Polk, Ground Zero, Hertz etc. if you have the time and patience. 307 grey se le rahe ho toh sambhalke lena, kisi reliable aadmi se lena jispe bharosa ho.

Chevy Buggers have delayed delivery for Friday afternoon. Hate it when this happens. Neways, just have to wait now. How are the Pioneer Kevlar Components. Do they sound good?

If i am not wrong for all sedans, the front door can accommodate 6.5 inch front speakers. So JBL GTO507, which is a 5.5 inch will easily fit ( without modifying the door pads)

Nope, the Ford Ikon cant take a 6.5" without cutting away the original grill which is a part of the pocket and some other stuff. I think the stock location is a 4".

My, my 4" is way too small. He'll then have to cut the entire door open to fit a 507
