Yes navin, you are right. If this socket is not fixed then the warranty would be void too. And you know what, tata does'nt provide a connection for the antennae , So for the time being i cant listen to the radio. Although i am planning to go for the bosch antennae which fits on to the IRVM.

Slightly off topic : The dealer has refused to fit a power socket in my LXi saying that the workshop people have advised him against it.

So can the dealer fit the socket or not? Is he being needlessly intransigent? Have any of you had the socket fit through a dealer?

I checked with my dealer and seems the socket can be provided only with a HU. Is that so? can we get an aftermarket socket?

Interesting. My dealer told me the music system fits into a socket, this was also confirmed by the accessories shop owner, so I am assuming the Nano already has a socket.

It has a provision for a socket, not the socket itself. The plot thickens.... :-)

Dang, there goes my half hour window to edit the post!

Anyways when I checked with the dealer and the local accessories shop, the difference between the same Sony head unit was probably less than 200 rupees. So I might decide to go with the dealer for this one. I haven't yet figured out the speaker problem yet, so I am not going for a music system right away.

However, the dealer only stocks Sony.

I think i can solve your problems regarding the speaker placement. I am sorry i was not able to post the pictures of my install as i was not doing well. I will try to post the pics today. The speakers in my car have been placed on the existing rear parcel tray but with an added MDF custom board fitted on top of it. See the pictures and then you will have a good idea.

Aditya, PM your contact number, I would like to meet and hear the audio quality of the setup in your Nano. I am also looking to install audio system in my Nano. I was just wondering how the rear speakers perform given the higher level of engine noise inside the Nano cabin.

I am not able to PM you since you are a newbie as of now.

He won't be able to PM either as he's a newbie. You'll have to find some other way.

Awaiting the pics, Aditya.

Sure , anytime. But as Athani said, i wont be able to PM either and i think giving out your personal email id and phone number is against the rules so wont be able to do that either. So have to figure out some other way !

Looks good. However, I have apprehensions about reducing the rear storage space (if I go for the rear speakers) and spoiling the dash (if I go for the front speakers). So unless I solve this dilemma, or bring myself to accept the tradeoff, I won't be going in for the speakers.

Since without speakers the music system would be meaningless, I am searching for other alternatives in the meanwhile.

I fit the JVC KD-X50BT HU. It has radio, USB, aux, ipod & bluetooth functionality. It comes with a mic which can be used when the phone is connected to the HU. Cost Rs.5200 with bill. I only fixed two 4inch rear speakers which cost Rs. 1000. Antenna cost Rs. 250. Fitting Rs. 200. The sound is quite acceptable.

PS: I insured the HU by paying additional premium which came to Rs. 233.

I today saw the place where the HU sits in. And to my surprise there were no wires, sockets or any such provision for music system. How could that be possible? I have a 2011 Manufactured Nano LX model. Does'nt Tata provide any sort of provision for adding a music system?
