Have you installed an amp or sub also or just he 4 speakers?
And won't the bass of 936 be better than that of 636?

Well, SM.. Let me tell you what I was told.. Adding an amp makes the sound richer and it works well if you're listening to music at higher volumes. If you juz want pleasant sounding music at lower volume levels, then your setup wouldn't BADLY require an amp...

So its upto you to decide. I like my sound 'amplified' and I listen to a lotta rap, hip-hop and alternative muzic, and so I take it high and need to have it amplified...

In my 'audio knowledge less' language, adding an amp would make a great sounding setup, GREATER... [now these folks are gonna lol me, am sure ]

I am an advocate of the fact that REAR speakers should only be used as FILLERS. I am sure 936 will have a better base compared to the 636, however they will upset the sound stage (in my opinion). I am not happy with the sound of 636 however I use fader to shift the sound stage to the fronts, thus I am not too bothered by its output.
At the present time, I do not have an amplifier or a woofer. However eventually I am planning to have a 4 channel amplifier to drive my front speakers, and a bass tube/subwoofer for the bass. Thus I am not too bothered about co-axials giving me the bass, as I will get all the bass I need from the sub.

Although 5510 is a very decent sober looking unit. So based on whether you want to impress your freinds with dolphins (Pioneer ) or just have good music (Sony), you can make a decision. In the Santro I went for 5510, in my Swift I was contemplating the Pioneer 6750 for 7.5k but ended up getting the Sony 8800 for 13k. Sony 8800 has dolphins too best of both worlds eh eh!
The difference between 5510 and 5610 is nominal. So go for either.
Regarding the speakers in Santro, I went for Blankpunt 4 inch fronts and Pioneer 4 channel in the rear. Blankpunt costed 1200 and Pioneer costed around 3k.
However it was a very bad decision to go for the speakers mentioned above. I WONT recommend them to anyone. At that time my brother had got it done in one day! The Blankpunt are so shrill, its like they are made for BATS! They virtually eat my brain out! The pioneers are ok.
However if I was to go for a setup for 12k this is what I would do now:

1) Use Sony HU for 5.5k
2) Front components JBL/Boston/Sony of 5": 4-5k
3) Any co-axial in the rear for around : 2k

Always remember that contrary to the common misconception, one should always have better speakers in the fronts than the rears.

So this makes your total budget to 12k

First upgrade:
1) Sony 504Z 4 channel amp for 4k

Second upgrade:
1) A subwoofer for the bass from 3k onwards

Third uprade:
1) Change the damn car damn it!!!

@Aseem...Did u go for the above upgrade?

Unless you got a wireless rounter connected to a T1 pipe. in which case....ok lets shift this to another forum.

Sometime back (1990s) I did some work with MANs.

You are absolutely right abt the specs for T1 T2 T3 connection and yes the whole network is set up using wireless protocols.

It was me Sam who said the above. I totally understand what are trying to say and what you have always meant. And guess what, Even I am going to buy JBL only for my car. And again Thanks to you for getting me the number for the distributor in Chandigarh.

I just meant that as much as we have JBL on this forum, If possible we would like some advice on other brands as well. If you felt bad abt It, I am extremely Sorry for that.

606 goes to the front door. If going for 936, than you need to go for a tray in the rear. Else go for 636 which can be fixed in the rear doors.

Sony 5510 HU.
JBL 936 - Rear
JBL Compos - Front.


Did not get time to install it all this while, but that was good thing I guess . Off late I have heard/read quite some issues with the Sony HU (esp 5500), but not sure whether the same is prevalent in 5510.

Spoke to the JBL chap (shabir - FYI Sam) and he suggested the Blaupunkt Bermuda anytime over the Sony.

Its available in the range of 8-9k, hence pushing my budget.

What do you guys suggest about the HU?

Is it worth that extra moolah? Hows the performance? I mainly listen to Classic and Hard Rock.

Pioneer is another choice in that range, but I would refrain from it due to the lack of B&W, esp the W part


Experts... please pour in.


Thanks.
Even I listened to Blaupunkt's Bermuda. Its is the entry level MP3 in Blaupunkt costing 7.5K with Bill and Warranty in Chandigarh. However being an entry level Unit It doesn't hv much tweaking option as you would find in Sony 5510 etc for Rs 5400 without B&W. decide Yourself, Even I am getting one 2moro, will let you know what I will go in for.
