Any sources you are aware of?
carwale dot com has a thread with list of stock OEM speaker sizes for a good number of cars. I would link it but I don't know if I would be breaking forum rules. Also if anyone is making a copy over here, please mention source or due credit.

Really nice way to summarize the requiements for selecting a new car audio system. From the aesthetics point of view it is required to have some idea about 1-DIN/2-DIN panels and display of the system. Also, how many speakers should one prefer? If someone could throw some light, it would be great. I'm looking to have a good stereo for my K10 that essentially will be used to hear bass beats and guitar tunes.

For hatchbacks its better to have component speakers for front and coaxial speakers for back .
If you need good bass ,one need to add a sub woofer and a basic amplifier.

Can anyone suggest how to get the best sound out of the unit in the SX4?

Can I install good high end speakers or do I need to go for an amplifier?

I'd prefer to keep the oem unit to keep the steering controls.

A good 4 channel amp. with built in crossover and components for front and rear should be able to give you decent sound quality. The choice of speakers and amp. combo is huge and I would suggest you go to a reputed ICE installer in your city and he would be able to advise what is best suited to your car and music preferences.

If a amplifier is present separately does the HU still hold any importance?

Dear abhi7013, can you please tell us specifically what you are looking for. A basic audio system which will just play music or a system which will flex windscreen and wake the neighborhood? Tell us more about your taste in music (genre). Also an insight into your planned budget will help. "Sachin's Auto shop" in koramangala will be a good place to get the install done.

Hello sir, thanks for your reply. Am looking for a basic player system. Something which is not too complicated. I have a pioneer system but there's no aux or usb. Just a cd drive. So planning to buy an interface which has both usb and aux.
Also, i have a pair if JBL rear speakers, both of which are not working and beyond repair. Broken diaphragm. So was looking out for a 400-500W jbl speakers.
Budget: it would be great if both the player system and speakers do not exceed 10K. I looked at two shops both of which quoted 10,500 for a pioneer system and a 400W jbl speaker pair..
So wanted to know good shops which offer good price in areas like jc road or sanjay nagar or RT nagar in Bangalore..

Look for a headunit which has at least 20 watts RMS output (i presume you wont be using an amplifier). Avoid pioneer if you wont be using an amp. Something like JVC KD-R456 will be fine and should retail for around 5.5K. For rear ovals Alpine SPS-69C3 would be my choice and these cost around 4K. I personally would avoid JBL speakers as there are many counterfeit JBL products in the market.
Purchase the products online and get the installation done locally, This will be more cost-effective. Keep us updated

If you are satisfied with the current HU output and if you could live with AUX only, here is something for you

EDIT: just read your last post regarding JVC HU purchase.

Hi BHPians!!

I need few suggestions for a new add on accessories for Baleno(Zeta) that i am going to buy soon.
I was not happy with the bass range that the standard music system produced, It was giving more vibrations rather than the thump. I am planning to add a SubWoofer and an amplifier. Need suggestions for the same!!
Budget ~ 10K
