Sam, Navin, McLaren,

Thank you all for your inputs. I do observe this thread regularly. And I do see few people being active here and giving valuable suggessions. So I PMed all of them to get their views and I will take my own decision and finalize on the right audio configuration for my Swift.

I tried to get Nakamichi, but in one of the american online forums, learned that Nak skips a lot on bad roads! So on Indian roads I am sure it will choke, so dropped the idea. Otherwise that was my preference for HU.

So I guess, I am finalising on Alpine 9827, JBL GTO606Ce in the front and GTO636e in the rear.

And Navin, I like Chardonay too! CHEERS! :-)

I wish I could contribute to this forum in some way, but when you experts are here, then nothing much I can do except asking for your help! Thanks a lot to all of you.

If there is any question on WiFi or WiMax then I can be handy! ;-)

thats true selective..my cousin had a nak HU in his zen which he got about 3yrs back..dont know which model bcoz i wasnt interested in HU and speakers then(had to get thru my schooling rather than stuff like these)..he had the same problem and the case worsened and he had to give it for repair..i think the HU is lying with the service centre since 7 months..btw he sold his zen and is using a rd350..so not bothered about collecting it back..some people huh!!!

You know you will put us out of business. If I had to give away 2 subs to you for putting JBL stickers on your car....
The only people in business after that would be the guys that make JBL stickers!

i agree but u must take into consideration the amount of publicity u will get if i take my car with all those stickers sam,potentially and commercially u will gain more than with the loss ul have by gifting me the two subs..damn cant use smilys to make my posts more interesting, i think courtesy mods...shouldnt have used them excessively in the 1st place..

Neither did I. I am a regular at this forum. I have learnt a lot from Navin and you. I have been watching Aseem making these snide remarks abt you, and thought of reacting; but decided against it.
Now that you have raised the matter, I fully agree with you.

Hmmmm... Sam, now that I've bought the JBL speakers myself and I won't be able to enter your contest, why don't you gimme lotsa stickers and tissue boxes instead

Btw, I have the "Caution! High Decibels" JBL sticker on my tailgate windshield.... Would that qualify for me to get a sub??? JK

Guys,

Is there any car accessories shop you trust in Bangalore who has all and can install the following config in my car? And ofcourse the shop should have all originals and no duplicates!

Alpine 9827, JBL or Boston front components and JBL or Sony rear triaxials.

Let me know and thanks a lot in advance.

Selective, if you want to go with Alpine HU and JBL speakers, I'd recommend the JBL Exclusive shop in B'lore which is on the corner of Lavelle road and V Mallaya road.. I went there to get my Alpine 9833.. PM me if you want a contact #.
Sam could help you better as its an exclusive JBL shop + sells other brands too...[ with B&W]

Navin dude... please. That dig was meant for Vivek who had posted the following:
"I have a 8 years back ground in electronics with DIY....", not you. In any case it was to make light of the fact that I dont have much experience in this field. I highly value your inputs and will never say something about you in a bad taste.
