For the HU - read this. Someone who's had a first-hand experience with it would anyday be in a better position to comment on it.
As for CS-5, and if I'm not mistaken, they are very basic entry-level components (unable to find them on indiajbl site), there's a lot better that you can get, may be not at the same price though. Also check the size, I think they are smaller ones too. In swift you could easily fit, 6.5" components.

If you only have 5k to spare then I'd suggest you swap the components with some entry-level ones from Bull/JBL(better ones). Since I have Morel's maximos in my swift I can vouch for them for being one of the best available at 5k. Audition these and you might not want anything else at 5k.

PS: I'd have loved to recommend dampening for the front doors but given the budget you may skip it for a while and get it done if you feel that rattling due to the components is unbearable.

For your restrictive budget of 5k not much can be done I guess. I have seen good results in Etios with Rockford Fosgate Prime R1693 3-way 6 X 9 on rear parcel tray. They costed 4750/- with B&W. Personally I liked these compared to JBL competitor GT6-S699 priced similar.

However, you should audition them before finalizing anything.

Otherwise, in no-limit case the ICE gurus here can suggest some unthinkable things for you.

Did Maximos price came down to 5K? If that is true, look no further - replace the current speakers with a pair of maximos.

Righto so these Morel Maximo's are geared towards SPL or SQ or both ?
Would it be better to add a bass tube instead? like make for an overall better experience ?
I think the JBL base model tube is around 5k ? or would the bass just overwhelm the treble perhaps me thinks..

Well the Maximos aren't really SPL components but very nice SQ for its price, IMO the best at this price.
Please don't add a bass tube unless all you want to hear is the boom (unless you are a boom lover). Get a Bull/JBL/Blaupunkt sub for about ~3-4k in a sealed box and you should be all set.
See at this price you wouldn't be able to get anywhere near a good SPL setup (I gave up the idea even when I spent 43k on my ICE) so why not spend it on getting a good SQ setup (gradually) instead.
Alternatively, you could get a pair of good components now, enjoy them for a while and while the Vitamin M accumulates, get an amp (this can't be missed) and a sub, for say about ~10k (amp + sub)

Vitamin M, I like your choice of words there ; ).
Thank you & Everyone for your input. I'll look into these Morels now.
