4 speakers
Front - 'XS-V1642A' 6" 270 watts
Rear - oval 'XS-GT6948X'420 watts,
(Heard them quite good but lacks bass or maybe i was hearing in the showroom thas y the bass was not felt).
price=about 16k.

2.Blaupunkt
Head unit - Bahamas MP34 or Bermuda(not sure)
4 speakers
Front - 4" 40x2 watts
Rear - oval 220watts(didnt heard them yet)
price=about 16k.

now guyes which 1 do u suggest,

Nishant.

AVOID Sony speakers.

1.Pio HU/Blau HU -6k
2.Front components- <5-6k
3.Rear 6x9 on MDF trey ~5k as u r looking for some o/w coax for rear doors
4.Install+MDF tray -1k
Go for good brands like Infinty,Hertz,alpine,JBL.

Larer u can add amplifier and will have some more bass and more clarity.

Choose you car first! If you hate cutting off your car's OE tray there are other options.

Hello rsjaurr,
Is it a must that we need the Front Components in the esteem? i thought only the tweeters will do. If i do, where do i fix them?

In many cases installing a component system requires some modification of the interior (like cutting a hole in the A pilllar) or an unsightly tweeter stuck on the dashboard.

HU: 6K
Front coax: 3.5-4K
Rear coax: 4.5-5K
MDF tray and install: 1.5K

Speakers: I dont think Infinity will fit your budget but JBL's CS series will and Alpines S series might. Blau I think does not sell it's ODx series anymore and none of my friends have been impressed with their GTO series.

You've got some nice setups already for the budget you've mentioned.

You can either stick on this budget or stretch a bit more and get a more better sounding, good quality system.

HU -- Pioneer 6850 (Rs.9000+/- Grey)
Front -- Hertz 5.25" Components (Rs.5700+/-)
Rear -- Hertz 6X9 ovals (Rs.4850+/-)
Install (Rs.1000)

Those hertz speakers are very good in build quality and will sound excellent.

hey man if its a swift, then just install speakers in all 4 doors . a set of two comps . or two in the front and get a MDF tray at the back and then install the same.

HERTZ 5.25" + JBL 606/607 6"+ HU .

JBL 607/606 6"+ JBL 606/607 6" + HU .

i think you might have to compromise on a set of comps if you wanna get a good PIONEER HU ie 6850.

that would be like hertz comps / jbl comps (in case of jbl then you can have better set of other speakers ) + pionner HU + some 6 " speakers i think you can get a blaupunkt in the grey market.

It is wrong to have only tweeters in front. You MUST have some mid/midbass as well and that can only be achieved through component sets.

if you sit in the front it is much more fun to have a whole speakers system upfront this way you hear the soundstage in front of you.

yes, you can put 6x9's in the rear parcel shelf of the swift. i've got a couple of sony xplod speakers there and they sound like cows burping.
