Default Calling help in Pune...

Folks,

Sometime back I introduced the following thread on ICE.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/car-en...ption-30k.html (Best Audio Option in 30K)

Since then,

I have arrived in India...settling down in Pune.
Have taken yesterday delivery of a Blue Tata Safari Dicor LX 4x2.

And now the most important thing...I am looking for an excellent Audio Arrangement in the babe.

I need your help on two accounts...

1. Your advise on what confiuration to install in a Safari.
2. I do not know Pune at all. Pune based BHPians please advise which are the reliable and good places where I can get the stuff done.

Now some facts/constraints/my wish list for you to consider while designing an apt solution :-

1. My Budget - 30 K...max 40 K
2. My type of Music - (howsoever LS it may sound) - Punjabi, Indi Pop, Gazals, Kishore, Rafi and radio Mirchi :-).
3. I am an extremely 'Treble' driven guy. Without a solid treble effect, the music remains ' no music' to me. Bass too is important...but remains a second. Last time in my accent, I had 4 Pioneer Tweeters installed - two on the dash and two on the side beams near the roof...3 inches away from my ears (obviously the left tweeter of this setyone was a little farther away from me but a lot closer to the front passenger's left ear.)
4. When I am alone in the car, my preference is loud ear shattering sound.
5. But often I am with family, who preferes an absolutely 'quite' but 'clear' music.

BEG for your help...

By stock I hope u mean 'speakers'...sorry buddy once again...as I said before - I am naive as far as music systems and their terminology goes. So if its speakers, then on front and rear doors you have provisions. Sizes - i will get back.

Dicor EX comes with 4 speakers on the four doors (bottom) and 2 tweeters on the inside of the ORVM mounts.

These points should be available on Aroon's LX too.

The OE speakers are Blaupunkt 2-way 5 inch jobs. I've had these replaced by a pair of Blaupunkt 2-way 6-inchers in front and a pair of Boston FX5 in the rear.

Also bought a Blaupunkt ODsb 8000A subwoofer which I am yet to install. Its a nice compact sub that fits neatly behind the rear seats without taking up too much space. There was a time when I even contemplated the possibility of a roof-mounted sub-woofer...I didnt want to lose luggage space.

IMHO the rear doors dont seem to be a good 'speaker box'. It would make more sense to mount the rear speakers somewhere in the luggage area...there are plenty of hollow plastic panels there that you could gouge out to mount a speaker. Again, if you dont plan to use the rear jump seats you could remove them and put a good box in that space.

All 4 doors - 5.25" round. This is too small but then you will have to cut the plasticwork for bigger speakers.
There is space for 1.25" tweeters behind the ORVM on the front doors.

I have a Pioneer5750mp HU and Sony speakers (stock size)- components in the front. The problem is the bass is all lost in the huge space of the Safari and am I am a bass heavy guy.
Mcclaren, I need help with a subwoofer now. Can you PM me you phone# or Yahoo/MSN/Skype IDs..
