Its a good HU for just playing the CDs. I got no issues so far.

MAAAIN agree karta hoon. At this price the Pioneer 2950 is pretty darn good.

How's the audio quality for you, Freedabad?

Pioneer 2950 MP in Kochi is Rs. 4250; a dealer has promised this with some nameless brand 4 speakers (6x9 + 4 inch dash) for 7.5K.

Confirmed with a few shops, Pio 2950 is for 4k (max). But, 3950 is only a few hundreds more....

Sam, yes - 3250 for 2 pairs - two in the dash and two at the back. They did not seem like ``nameless'' or brand less, just that I did not notice the brand - I started looking at the gyan in this forum after going there. And I may not going for that. I may settle for the dealer install BP Maui with 4 blau speakers, and that is based on the feed back from another thread (Specific to Xeta) on this forum.

But what beats me is this - all audio installers I have met so far insist on this combination. They say, putting speakers in doors causes trouble, without spelling out what it is. But almost everybody on this form says ``front doors and back, forget the dash speakers''. Why this conflict?

And what I want to know is, it is worth putting my foot down and insisting on front door speakers?

why are Clarion Units so unpopular in India? I have heard they are pretty good.

I like Clarion. I guess they are poorly marketed?

Don't be confused lol. The same company distributes both Clarion and JVC. Obviously JVC is a lot easier to sell.
