no major brand in india makes 4" components. you can ofcourse roll your own. :-)

check with your installer, most doors can take a 5" it might involve some metal cutting though.

if you put a four inch coaxial in front and a 6+ coaxial in the rear your going to have a complete rear sound stage.thats something you wouldn want if your driving most of the time.im sure you can fit atleast a 5 inch component.

I agree with revtech.

1. try and shoe horn the largest woofer that will fit in the door. 5" or even 6". with a City you dont have tweeter pods (alteast our CVTs dont) so you either live with Coax or with a tweeter flush mounted inthe A pillar or surface mounted on the dash. pick your poison. either way try 5". It should fit.

2. then use the same speaker in the rear you can use coax in the rear to sme bucks.

Trance is very bass intensive. I would look at 2 12" subs if you afford it. It will require 2 amps. or you cna get 1 amp and 1 12" sub for now and add one later.

Your wish...

1. buy a 4" coax from say JBL. The JBL 426 is a good example....

2. fashion 2 dust cap/ phase plug out of a plastic cone (I've used many odd things from the covers of some old Leggs Stocking my ex-GF used to have to brass cups to having custom one made out of clay damped with resin). I suggest using a plastic phase plug as it is easiest to install.

3. snip out the tweeter from the 4" coax. save these for later.the cap (usually 1uf or 2uf /50V can be junked)

4. install phase plug / dust cap where tweeter was to cover the hole on the voice coil. A light dust cap piece can be stuck to the cone without a huge change in the cone's abilities a heavier clay/brass style phase plug would require you the pole piece to be mounted from behind the woofer

5. now use a nice poly cap of the same value of the cap you discarded and series that with the tweeter fluch mount the tweeter using blutack on the magnet inside the tweeter pod.

If you car does not have tweeter pods (like the City) then I do not suggest doing all this as making a tweeter grill is hard work and requires someone who can draw a metal mesh into a grill. I have done this but wont try it again.

Now that you have great 4" components it is time to power them with a nice tube amp....Vivek will fill in those details! :-)

Oz,

The 560 dont have preamps outputs. The cheaper way to do this is to get a speaker level adapter that will adapt your speaker output to be used with an external amp. This will not produce the same quality of sound if you had premap outputs but in your only other alternate would be change the HU (esp if you dont need cassette - the 560 is a 2 DIN Hu with casette and CD).

that said let us know your budget. the gurus here will be most eager to confuse you.

cda-560e has a single subwoofer preamp out. so i guess you can use a mono amp for the subwoofer. if you want to use the same HU and use an amp to power the speakers, then get an amp that takes speaker level input or use a line output convertor.
