I dont think it will be fair to EVO/ Blueraven if I give you a break-down of the prices so I will just give you the total. It cost me 18k for the components, rear co-axials, kicker amp, wiring and customization of the pads and rear tray using MDF rings. The HU is the old one that I already had. didnt have to change it thankfully since it had 2 RC outs.

More pics soon as my cam battery died that day and I havent been able to click the final pics yet.

now the most important part.
How do they sound????!
i think he wouldn't mind you putting up a price split up . It would help aspiring ICE junkies like me(who still uses crappy cone speakers)

When it comes to components, I did not consider JBL as I felt they were inferior to the Bostons for my listenting requirement. For the amps, I tried both the JBL as well as Kicker amps and the Kicker performed audibly way better although specs wise the JBL was better. Most probably will put in a sub from JBL later as I dont need a very heavy duty sub like a JL audio, etc. and add a monoblock amp to go with it as well.

Please do feel free to check out the set-up in my car anytime you like before you go for an install. It will help you decide! My office is on the intermediate ring road and i stay in indiranagar.

wow looks like you have done a lot of R&D before going to EVO.
You said the 18k you spent for the setup was including of installation charges?
If yes. Im going to Carry 18k in my wallet(sounding a bit cheap here i know ) , Ask him to exactly do what he did to your car,although there might be small variations in the tray box installations and the front door installation of the palio compared to the esteem.

Actually the R&D was all done in EVO during install Hence took one full day! Poor chaps doing the install had to fix and remove stuff a lot of times.
