Default Cedia Select: Pre-owned car: ICE'd

The ICE of my cedia select is done and am waiting for the 300.1 mono-block to complete the setup.
HU: Pioneer 7950 (from my previous car swift)
Front: JBL 608c (new b/w 4600)
Rear: JBL 638 (new b/w 3300)
4 channel JBL 504 amp to power the 4 above speakers. amp was from previous car. used the old RCA cables and monster speaker cables.
I have the JBL sub 1260Br from my previous car which is not connected yet. Planning to buy a monoblock (300.1) and connect the sub later.
bought the audison(connection) - distributor block (1600) to distribute the power supply to both amps.
Dampening of front doors and trunk: 4 sheets of wurth (2000). Well in the boot and floor of the car is dampened from the company itself in cedia. that too two layers of dampening.
wooden plank and grey carpet (500)
New phillips 90/100 rallye head lamps and roots relay kit (1100)
The stock battery on cedia is 32AH. Do not know if this can provide the juice for both the amps and headlamps along with AC fan and others.
I think I need to upgrade the battery. what would be the ideal power requirement.

Attached are pictures from a mobile. Please excuse my photography skills and my mobile camera.

The sub is not connected as of now. The tuning seems to be on brighter side. I have put the eq on flat and reduced the higher frequencies. still it seems to be on brighter side.
settings on 504 are HPF ON on both front and Rear. Crossover at 80. gains at 50%. Bass boost off. Still i find the clarity or crispness missing.
on HU - HPF off (I will put it on 80 after the sub is added). loudness at mid. LPF at 80.

I have used the same HU+AMP+SUB in swiftD with 607c JBLs. The rears were never used and were directly from HU. The crispness and clarity i had in swift is missing. is it because of the change in front comps. or it has to do anything with settings.

Gurus please advise.

Could be the comps. The 608C's are probably 'softer' than the 607C's.

Is it a bass-reflex enclosure or did you change it?

check the setting on the cross-over for the tweeter if its set at +3db then set it to 0 or -3db as your preference.
and check the positioning of the tweeter play around with the position and when you are satisfied with the sound at one particular position fix the tweeter there.
For a starting point place tweeter on the Windshield pillar and not directly firring towards you.The firring of tweeter should make a cross which means the Passenger side tweeter should face the driver and vice versa.

I will check the cross over setting. I think it is +3 db on both the front comps and rear coaxials. First i will put 0 db on co-axials and check and then check the comps. thanks jatin
