well then amit get the pio 6100 for 6K and mate that to the JBL1200T tube for 6.5K and you got a amp and sub for 12.5K. spend the rest of the 25K on a good HU.

The 6100 costs about 6.5-7K the 944 costs about 12.5K can you spare 6K more for just a sub amp?

Also comment.
How is this pionner 1000 W DVC sub?

Suggest me what is better.
1. Pio 6100F with some 5-6k costing sub. (Total: sub +amp = 13k app)
2. Pio 944 with pio (1000W) DVC sub (Rs3500) (Total sub+amp = 15500 app)
3. Or make a good combination of sub + amp costing 15 k at max.
I would recommend the Pio 944 amp over the blau and over the 6100f simply because its got more power plus it’s a great amp. Bridge two channels of the sub and connect it to the sub and your car would rock with bass. For the sub, I don’t have experience with the Kicker but would recommend Pioneer to be mated with the 944. You could listen to both the Kicker and Pioneer and then decide on the one you like. For the HU, buy the Pio 7750. It would all cost you as follows:

HU Pio 7750 – 7500
Amp Pio 944 – 13500
Sub Pioneer – 3000
MDF Board – 800
Installation
& Wiring - 3000

That’s over your budget of 25k but if you could negotiate, you could come close and settle at 26k.

One thing that people seem miss about Pioneer HUs is the option if a steering mounted remote (extra for abt 750 Rs). It makes driving so much more safe as you never have to take your eyes off the road to change the song or tinker with the volume. Or just to mute (there is a ATT button for this) when you suddenly get that mobile call...

Many of my friends that have pioneer dont use this remote...I wonder why...tinkering with the HU while you are driving (all of us do that ...to change the

Sony also makes the steering column mounted remote (as opposed to Pioneer that is Steering ring mounted)...but the cheper ones are wired and I guess not so easy to use...

Hopefully with time these will become more popular

Buffetfan, I havent missed out on it. I had started using the Pioneer steering remote from 2000 and it was with me till the begining of this year, when it conked out. Bought it for around rs.1200 then and was very very handy and easy to use. Now I have roof mounted the standard remote in my car and I can use it without taking my eyes off the road!

THANKS TO ALL GURU JIs.

My final decision and the setup i am going for
Amplifier: Pioneer 6100F (60rms x 4) at 4 ohms
Subwoofer: Kicker 12" power handling (50-125 rms)
OR
JBL CS1200T tube (125 rms)

Head unit: pioneer 7750
Rear speakers (already installed): pioneer REV range (yellow ones) 350w (not sure about RMS)

Just rate the setup out of 10.

Even I got this and it is Amazing. Good control on all functions except directory browsing. the volume control and mute is best.

The only bad point is that it has to be munted on the left side of the steering only as it is infrared.

yes navin ji, i would be doing the same thing. I would test the two subs and then decide.
Well , again thanks to you people. I would say that my journey of query had started with a lot of confusion and with lack of knowledge about car audio. Hats off to you guruji log for finally suggesting me a good system in my budget.

I would want to keep this forum alive, by keeping in touch with u people.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!

Hopefully, after some time i will put a monoblock amplifier for the woofer.
Thanks,
navin ji, aseem, mclaren, jkdas and all.
