Default Amp+Subwoofer within Rs 6000

Hello Friends,

I currently have a Pioneer HU and 4 X JBL speakers (6 X 9 at the rear) installed in my Wagon R. I want to go for an Amp + Woofer within a strict budget of Rs 6000-6500. I am ready to install used amp/ woofer as well.

Could you please suggest the best combination I should go for. I am staying at Noida. So can you suggest the correct shop in Delhi/NCR to go to where I can get my required accessories.

That is a challenge most car audio shops will find it difficult to rise to. Your best bet would be Sony 2ch. amp + Sony sub, or Pio 2ch. amp + Pio sub. Avoid 'V12' type amps even if they sound more economical than the branded amps.

If you want used stuff, do search through TBHP classifieds. Also, sometimes good installers - like Driven in EoK - might have stuff discarded after an upgrade - but for that you need to go there and check.

Beware: since you already have 6x9 in the rear, and all speakers on HU, adding an amp and a sub will leave you with an unbalanced bass-heavy sound as compared to what you are listening now. This may not be a tolerable listening experience. Better way is to buy a 4ch amp and connect the front speakers and sub to it, leaving the rear 6x9s on the HU. This will need you to increase your budget by another 3-4K (don't forget wires, RCA cables, installation etc.)

I am getting a used Sony XMZR604 Xplod 4 Channel 600 watt Amplifier for Rs 3200. Should I go for it?

Below are the specs:

110W x 4 Max Power into 4 Ohms
150W x 2 (at 2 Ohms) + 300W x1 (at 4 Ohms) Max Power
60W x 2 RMS into 4 Ohms
65W x 4 RMS into 2 Ohms
High Level Sensing Power On
80Hz High Pass filter with -12dB/Octave Slope
80Hz Low Pass Filter with -18dB/Octave Slope
MOSFET Power Supply
RCA & speaker level inputs
Line level thru-put
CEA-2006 Power Compliant
Output Power:
CEA Rating: 60W x 4
DIN 45500 Rating (@ 14 V, THD 0.5 %)
4 ohm: 4 x 60W
2 ohm: 4 x 65W
Rated/THD (@ 14.4 V, 20 Hz - 20 kHz)
4 ohm: 4 x 60W / 1.0% (14.4V, 20 - 20kHz)
2 ohm: 4 x 65W / 0.1% (14.4V, 20 - 20kHz)
Maximum (@ 14.4 V)
4 ohm: 4 x 110W
2 ohm: 4 x 150W
Input:
Low Pass Filter: 80Hz
LPF Roll Off Rate: -18dB/oct
Subsonic High Pass Filter :: 80Hz
Input sensitivity: 0.3 - 6Volts
Output:
Frequency Response: 5Hz - 50kHz
Tolerance: +0 / -3dB
Total Harmonic Distortion (@1 kHz): 0.005%
CEA SN Ratio: 97dB
Min Load Impedance/Ch: 2 ohm
General:
Current drain (@ Rated Power - 4?): 33 Amps (at 4 ohm)
Weight (approx.)(kg): 3.1
Dimensions (WxHxD in mm) approx: 396x55x256

Now, if I take this, that leaves me with Rs 3300 for the Woofer and Wire+Installation. Which woofer should I buy (my personal pref is JBL) and how much would it cost in the grey market? I got an offer of Rs 500 for the wires and I think installation would be another Rs 500.

Please advise any shops in and around Delhi/ NCR if possible.
