@Haxor

1) Since you are buying a swift,damping is a must.
2) If you want to enjoy the music to the fullest,sub is a must.but with your current budget (20K),it will be difficult to squeeze in a sub.
3) That is according to your listening.If you are driving alone and there is no rear-passengers,then you are better off with front components themselves. If you dont want rear speakers,then you can use that money to buy better components or a better HU.

Positioning part - gurus will answer.hehe

Hello Gurus and Friends...

I own Vista Aura and I am upgrading my music system step by step. Now I am in second phase.

In First phase I installed JBL GT5-S265c components in front. After that I could hear improved sound quality, improved front stage. Now this time I want to give some pleasure to rear seaters as well would like to have moderate tight bass. As usual this time also I am tight on money so suggestions with less cost to pocket are most welcome .

So My requirements .
1) Improve Bass I mean I need tight bass
2) Improve Rear Sound stage.

Right now at rear I have default OEM speakers with pathetic sound. Nobody could judge the existence of rear door speakers.

I have following options.

1) Change rear door coaxials with JBL 2 way systems. (will not improve bass in that much extent but improve loundness and clarity): cost < Rs.2000

2) Remove door speakers and add 6x9 JBL 938s in parcel tray without amplifier
will improve bass and overall sound. But I dont know how rear passengers will react. Would they object this because speakers are now closer to their ears? Cost < Rs. 3500

3) Option no.2 + add four channel amplifier and drive front components and rear JBL 938s. cost < Rs.7000. If this is to be done then I will add option 2 first and after some time I will add amplifier in Phase 3 which will occur in two months after phase 2 upgradation

4) Instead of option 1, 2 and 3. Add Sub and amp all things basic entry level. Like JBL 1204 with custom enclosure. And Sony XPlod 2 channel amplifier (I am not interested in xPlod at all). Please suggest cheapest amp to drive JBL 1204 subs.
cost < Rs. 7000.

I think I am clear on requirement. Please help me

Thanks,
Sushant

Sushant. I think your best option would be to get the amp and run your comps with it. And if you can buy a Sub, that would be even great. In this case you can run the front comps and the sub from a 4 chl amp.
About the Sony, I know they are not good However, there amp are decent. I mean if Money is the issue, then go for Sony 4 chl amp, trust me they are good VFM amp and im sure you will not regret it.

It is called a 'harness adapter'. Check the HU manual - the wire colors should be the same as mentioned in the HU diagram.

What did you want to use that info for?

DA, I think he is looking for an adaptor that allows him to connect his HU to his car harness without snipping any wire.

That's what I was expecting, except that he has specifically asked for the color codes.

@mohang_j, to buy the correct one, I think you have to ask for it by name / model of car - like Hyundai Santro or Ford Fiesta etc.
