For the alto, you can only fit 4" in the stock position.
i'd say (and dont say "ofcourse you would", because many will back me up here lol)
GTO936e for the rear(Rs 4750/-) and GTO426e for the front(2500/-) Be careful as some dealers will try and tell you there is additional VAT for the bill. There isn't. The prices include VAT and you can report a dealer that doesnt give you a bill and warranty. it's your right.
If you'd like to save a little money, buy sony fronts, theyre about 1400/-. Though it will make a slight difference in the mids and high, there will be no lows coming from the front anyways so it's a very small compromise.

But the 936 can handle 100W RMS while my Pioneer puts out about 22W per channel. But I suppose staying within the limits will not cause any harm. Can I use the same combo you suggested if I decide to add an external amp later?
Also could you suggest any reliable JBL dealer in Bangalore.

Thanks,
Vivek

The 936e does handle high power but is very sensitive, so you can go ahead and connect it to the deck. Baadme when you put an amp it will sound even better.
A reliable JBL dealer is Sound Factor, at Lavelle Road. Speak to a guy called pritam there. If pritam isnt there, my office is right next to that place, ask for the manager, Naren. He'll arrange for something. Tell them you're a friend of sams. It'll make the process quite easy lol. All the best.

Thanks a million Sam. You have been a great help. I am off to check out the speakers.

Cheers,

Sam,
I bought the speakers you suggested. They sounded nice with my Pioneer.
Mr. Pritam gave me the warranty card and also a small discount. He said it will cost a little extra if I want the bill. I asked him if the bill is necessary, he said it is not required and that the warranty card is enough in case of any problem. Is that okay?

Hi!
JBL products are always sold with a bill and there is never an extra charge.
I have spoken to pritam, seems to be a misunderstanding. Please drop by anytime to pick up your bill at no extra charge.
Thank you for bringing this to my notice.

Sam

Ok before Sam jumps me I am going to seek protection from the Moderators for my following statement(s).

Vivek, any chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Good speaker bad HU can sound as bad speaker good HU. (amps, and other processors make this more complex).

That said you can have problems at both ends the worst being in the extremly small signal components where any noise gets amplified by the entire chain and at the speaker end becuase one is converting electrical energy into mechnical energy.

This can be a longer discussion with some arguing that building an amp with 1% (at rated power, 20-20kHz) distortion is easy while building a speaker with 1% (at 50Hz at 95db) distortion is diffuclt etc. etc. but we'll leave that for another thread or maybe even another forum.

Nice. Quite nice. Is this what you're planning to build?

Depends on whether I get all the parts in Bangalore. Getting the semiconductors is a problem sometimes. Navin suggested the B&K STI140 amp but I am not able to find schematics and PCB layouts.

The ST 140/202+ are not car audio amps. the modified version is prat of my home audio system.

Car Audio amps require much more esp since alternator whine etc has to be eliminated. Today I use Alpines in 1 car, a Velocity and a regular Blau in the other. Wish I could afford Precision Power though.

Any other car amps you can suggest? I think I need five channels, including one for a sub.
