I have Blau HU with one set of speakers in the dash and 1 pair of ovals in the rear. All fed directly from the HU. I would like to add a pair comps to my setup. Will the HU be able to run it on its on or Does the comps need additional amp?

Actually couple of my colleagues(Swift and Fiesta) have ICE from Technokrat. They refused to take the swift inside their garage (for brand value), when inquired they said vehicle might dirty inside garage, and did all work on the road side. while next week fiesta had no problem going in. They said mostly small cars are not parked inside their garage.

If you want to put in components, why would you want to persist with the dash (4"?) speakers? No, the HU will not be able to drive both the 4"ers and the components in parallel.

Hi Gurus,

I have the following setup in my Accent,

JBL GTO-608C Components in the front.
JBL GT5-S396 Oval Speakers at the rear.

I am attaching 2 pics which show the placement of the Tweeters.

Please advise whether this setup is fine or do I need to change/add something over here.

Every HU (with the exception of a couple of rare exceptional ones) HAS an internal amp, which can drive speakers of at least 2.8 ohms. Below that, like connecting 2 speakers in parallel, the amp will fail. So yes, your HU can drive the components on the front speaker channel, and the 6x9 on the rear speaker channel.

Once you chrage your battery it should be fine. You just drained the battery out. Do not do that too often or you might permanantly damage one cell in the battery.

The solution is to keep the engine running or carry a set of battery cables so you can jump start the car.

The tweeters look set way to high. With that much distance between the midbass (which I assume is in the door) tweeter-midbass integration will be compromised.

But now that you have made holes and damaged the A pillar I dont see what can be done. It would have nicer if the tweeters were much lower down near dash corners.

Thanks for the reply, let me see if I can get something else to fit in there, maybe some dummy tweeter boxes and then I can get them shifted near the dash corners,

Would doing the above action help anyway?

Also, in addition, Pls let me know the recommendation of Amp/Sub Woofer for this setup?

Panasonic is being distributed via the Harman (read as JBL) network. JBL (and all other Harman brands) is distributed in India by Sahil Intl.

Becuase of the variances in in-car response I would have recommended using double sided tape to tempaorarily fix the tweeters before choosing a more permanant location.

Yes an Amp and subwoofer will help most setups.
