Default ICE for scorpio

setup is in scorpio. 90%, it would be just me and co-passenger.

so is it advisable to go for 4 speakers without sub and 4 channel mid-price amp or 2 speakers with sub and 2 channel high end amp (add rear speakers without amp in later stage if required)?

suggestions on amp is welcome. im a novice in this regard and prefer to buy based on advice.

A subwoofer will require an amp but will produce low frequencies that the smaller 5"-6" midbasses cannot. However a subwoofer needs space and adds about 12K to your budget (prices for a good system prices start at 6K for the sub, 3K for the amp, 1K for the box, 2K for the RCA and Power wires and install).

If you get a basic JBL sub (forget model number) powered by a 2 ch. Sony amp (bridged) it will still cost you about 12K.

Budget - 10k -15k. will be driven by me.

After lot of thinking i came up with AMP JBL GT5-S422 (expected price 3500). And i plan couple of OVALS at the back, and 2-way component in the front.

Is the AMP a good choice for the budget?? and What Speakers the GURUS suggest.

BTW i have read somewhere, its 4" inch stock speakers both in dash and parcel tray.

Guruz... any help... I am confused with the 4" stock speakers. Will i void warranty if i try to fit in a bigger speakers by widening holes. And is the amp choice good for the setup???

Widening holes should not void warranty.
Since you'll drive yourself, you could just have front compos and the sub. Drop the rear ovals and use that money towards a better set of components.

Does the Civic's stock Alpine HU have an Ai-Net socket? Is it possible to connect the PXA-100 to it?

mods: creating a separate post (as opposed to adding to the earlier one) since the topic is different.

hi all. just a small bit about myself. i am a newbie here. dont know too much about icing up my ohc so turning to u gurus for some advice.now here is my question....
i already have a HU pioneer (pls dont ask me the model). its a bit old but will do for now. i already have booked the Kicker ZX 5 chanel amp from US. ijust got the GTO 947ltd for 6500. is this overpriced? lot of my friends seem to suggest so.
also i find the sound on this to be a bit too trebble is too loud (i guess thats what u guys call bright)
should i get this changed? if so which coaxial speakers for the back?
also which components for the front.
also, what woofer or basetube would you recomend.
i generally listen to rock, to be honest all kinds of music including hindi music, just on my mood.
really look forward for ur advices. do not have a budjet cap

DOes the Civic have an OEM Alpine HU? I'm not so sure about this. If the HU is indeed an Alpine and has a AInet bus port the port will cealrly be labelled on the back of the HU (usually engraved).

1. Please post in proper english. I for example am an old man and without full stops, commas, capital letters to begin sentences was completely cofnused. I had to read the post 3 times just to ascertain what questions were being asked.

2. The words "budget no bar" or "Do not have budget cap" should be used with caution on the ICE forum. As far back as 1988 I have seen car stereo, in India, that far exceded the cost of the car itself.

3. Yes the 947 can be got for about Rs. 4000 or so. The list price, I thik is Rs. 4990. THe 938 which is also available is a little more laid back than the 947 but I believe both have a switch to reduce the treble of the tweeter. Have you tried this switch.

4. It makes some sense to use the same brand for the front to retain the sonic signature. JBL for example i known for their "Rock" sound. What I would recommend is to get a sealed box subwoofer instead of a tube or fitting a subwoofer in the rear deck (IB install). A subwoofer will need an amplifier. The ZX 700.5 amp can drive a subwoofer (say 10-12" or so) and 4 speakers.

Another option is the Alpine 6x9. The old 690A was very nice. I assume their new 6x9s will be just as good.

sunny, I can never keep model number ans prices straight in my head. they change too fast for, what masquerades as, my brain to keep up. Your friendly neighbourhood car stereo re-sellers will be able to help you.
