I've the same HU and contemplating to get JL C1 650 components for both Front & Rear doors of my Honda City.

Would you minding sharing the below details
  1. how these components pair with 5290 HU and the overall improvement you achieved over stock setup.
  2. Felt the need to add an Amp to extract more from these speakers?
  3. Did you audition any other speakers before deciding on these JL?.

Re: Car Audio Advice from the Audio Gurus: Use "Search thread" before posting a new Q!

Hi,

I have
Sony XAV-5500 HU,
Morel Maximo Ultra 602 MKII Components at the front, and stock speakers (RL, RR), driven by
Pioneer GM-D8704 4-Ch amp.
All doors are dampened.

Despite this setup, I am feeling I'm missing the thump of the bass in songs and hence considering this active sub -

Blaupunkt Xlf 10A

But I noticed that this sealed-enclosure, slim passive sub, MTX RTF10AS, is also priced similar.

Any suggestion which would be better - Active (XLF10A) or passive (MTX).
If I choose passive sub, then the rear speakers would be driven directly by HU.

How is Zoook Monster 8-inch Active sub, compared to Blaupunkt 10A, by the way?

HI CTA_35

The combination of JL 650 components with Pioneer 5290 will give you sound quality which is very tight, bright and clear (provided the source is good).

The dullness felt in stock and low budget speakers is totally absent here. I recommend to go for components only and not co-axials.

My car was basic variant, so didn't had audio setup. But this combination of course, can definitely not be compared to majority of stock setups because the HU really plays true sound compared to frequency-altered stock HU and components produce tight bass.

I hadn’t done audition for speakers and neither heard sound of this price range aftemarket speakers. I had Skoda Kodaiq 2019 with Canton Subwoofer as daily drive for 11 months; had boston ovals (6”x9”), sony coaxials (6.5”), JBL bass-tube (12”), Accoudio bass-tube in my previous cars; have listened some stock setups including Skoda Laura (4 speakers+4 tweeters) 2012, C 200d 2018, A3 25 TFSi 2017, TATA Tiago JBL (4 speakers+4 tweeters) 2021 setup and some more.

As far as my experience; with 6.5” stock and other speakers (low budget speakers), you will get bass, maybe very big bass but it may be hollow, which can only be heard and not felt (vibrations/thump) (physical limitations of size) and not tight at all and dull sound. Equal budget stock speaker will give you more or equal sound quality and but the bass may definitely not be tight.

JL 650 components will give you absolutely tight, with awesome and sweet sufficiently deep thump. JL 650 components are truly to go for its tight & sweet bass quality. I think the quality of bass is outstanding for 6.5” speakers. (JL 650 co-axials have disappointing bass quality and I am regretting with my purchase for rear doors due to the bass quality offered by components in comparison).

I am yet to install amplifier and experiencing wide range of bass thumps with different tracks. Although, without amplifier, it will produce equally tight bass, but some tracks will give the bass which will shatter doors and some will be so less that at low volumes, the road noise will cancel it. Although the sound quality without amplifier is very good (beyond my expectation), bright, clear and surround.

I feel the need to install amplifier to get that awesome tight bass from components uniformly with every track, most probably in Diwali (to fulfill the itch to spend money)

Bhpian Reinhard has installed a zook sub in his Nexon and seems happy with it. All other things being equal, a 10 inch sub will sound better than a 8 inch. I recently got a blaupunkt 8" and found it better than my sony xs aw8.
If you can put a full size sub, then why are you even bothering with underseat subs? They are inferior, in terms of output, and only used when you need boot space badly. If a full size sub is possible, then go for it by all means. I used to have one and i miss mine. Had to give it up due to needs of the family

Thanks for sharing your feedback S1200, it's quite helpful.

I found the Honda City speakers to be decent enough, hence was wondering if JL C1 would bring any considerable improvement. If you give away to the itch, please do let us know your findings, cheers!!

Re: Car Audio Advice from the Audio Gurus: Use "Search thread" before posting a new Q!

Hi guys, I am looking to upgrade by Audio setup in my Tata Altroz, It is currently running the stock Harman system (4 speakers, 4 tweeters). with a 8 inch under-seat sub.

I am playing with a budget around 40-60k (damping separately). Here is a suggested list, I am hoping someone could guide me around this..

Front: SONY ES XS-162ES comps
Back: SONY ES XS-160ES coaxs
Amp: SONY G24

I am planning on retaining the sub, but shifting it in the boot rather than the under-seat position. I am also not a fan about the 3-slider EQ in my stock HU. I was trying to compare the ES comps with Audison Voce AV K6, and Audison Prima APK 165P. But I cannot come to a conclusion as to which path I should take. I am open to switching out my stock HU as well - provided there would be a way I could retain the AC temp reading.

Hoping someone could guide me in the right direction here, thanks in advance.

Regards

Re: Car Audio Advice from the Audio Gurus: Use "Search thread" before posting a new Q!

Hello guys,
I have Honda city 2022 zxi. A while ago I installed following equipment in it with stock HU.
Rainbow components set of 4 on all four doors,
Rainbow amp 4 channel,
Rainbow mono amp for Sub,
Blaupunkt Sub in an enclosure
And
Nakamichi DSP.


Along with monster brand wiring. Unfortunately everytime the car comes back from honda they mess the wiring and the car store which installed are not doing good job anymore. They dont understand concept of stereo speaker system. They always set my speakers to mono.

I am looking for audio enthusiast cum installer in delhi NCR, who can take up the job on paid basis ofcourse and gives his best. I spoke with a few big names but since I already have the equipment they didnt seem interested.

Greatly appreciate if someone can refer a pro.
