Sure Navin...it will be pleasure meeting you too. Will definitely meet when I'll come to Mumbai.

Though I feel "Dollar" is far less of an offering.

well i come from a time when the Dollar was still a coin. now they got a note. it had some value then. It could buy oyu lunch and a subway token. my father's 1st job was for 20 pounds a month.

AGP: spend about 7k for the HU. Then get nice components upfront for about 4K and about 2k for the rear speakers. and 2K to get better speaker wires.

okay, audio gurus...

i have a question for ya..

i have a swift zxi. the current setup is;

H.U- kenwood dpx mp 5070 dual din..

rear speakers- JBL , 6"x9" 3-way, 100w R.M.S- mounted in the rear parcel tray (mdf pad)...forgot the model name, but i think it's from the GT series..

front- blaupunkt (again, i didn't see the model/specs)...

now, please tell me; is the head unit good enough..??

could the experts guide me to a propah amplifier, front and rear speaker setup, sub, and other goodies, assuming the head unit is to be constant..? also, it would be great if sombody could list the detailed specs on the H.U....

p.s- i like the rear JBL's, so i'm a li'l inclined towards a JBL setup..

Hi. The logical step would be to add a nice pair of 6.5" components upfront and to add a decent 4ch amp. If you want to go for a sub, your 4ch amps front channels can drive your fronts and the rears can be bridged to drive a sub.

I cant comment on the HU as I am not familiar with that model.

Cheers

well the 6x9's are from the GTO series..
well as u said ur more inclined towards a JBL setup after having closely been associated with sam and team JBL at the vahaan yatra for 3 days i suggest u use the JBL 50.4 to drive the front speakers and the rears..if possible u can get components at the front too..use the CS 50.4 to drive the speakers and try avoiding it to run a sub..for a sub u can go for the GTO 1200B at 9k and run it on the GTO 301.1 a monoblock which is really good for driving a sub..

u can also look at other brands depeding on ur budget like alpine,kicker,hertz,blaupunkt, sound stream,lightning audio and rockford fosgate too if budget permits..

arrre yaar...i'm a novice at audio jargon...what's a "50.4"..?? if you meant the amp model, (50wx4) then, well...isn't there a more powerful model from the GT series that can power my whole system, right from a propah sub (read :1000W r.m.s) to the components...??

i'm looking for the setup, with model no:s, specs, cost, etc...and best acoustic compatibility- i'm looking for grunty mid-range, with clear and thumpy low-range and sufficient top-end (sound o/p)...

S.O.S.....

well as far as JBL goes the best setup that i would suggest is go for the the
1. GTO 606ce at 6k a pair in the front and the back if possibe.
2. CS 50.4 amp to run the components at 9.5k to drive the components..
3. A 15'' sub from the GT4 (if sam can source it for u) or the subs from the GTO series..
4. GTO 301.1 monoblock to run the sub at 13k..
thats the best setup i would recommend from JBL..for info on these products check out www.fxaudio.com

Hey Veyron, dont say that out loud... there are people here who take the word "Best" literally. If money is no object, there are plenty of products available in India now. Amps costing more than the swift for example.

An indicative figure will help Mclaren and others suggest you a wondeful setup within your budget.

so very true gunbir..the cheapest amp from audison starts at 12k for a 2ch and stretches upto god knows what..even at the vahaan yatra JBL has an amp worth 2.75 lakhs..so atleast a min budget would help all..
