Need advice: Audio system upgrade on a 2018 Ford Aspire diesel

My friend is an audiophile and though the car is fun to drive, he wishes to upgrade the audio system.

BHPian VWAllstar recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Audio upgrade:

Recently a friend purchased a 2018 Ford Aspire Titanium Diesel in Mumbai. The car was sparingly used (37K KMs) and was available with Ola Pre-owned. The purchase process and delivery was seamless.

My friend is an audiophile and though the car is fun to drive, he wishes to upgrade the audio system.

Requirements:

  • A good center console with Android Connectivity.
  • Reverse Camera & sensors.
  • Speaker upgrades.

We dont wish to go all at once however the 1st and 2nd are an immediate requirement. Like always, I approached Amol from Reliable Radio (Chembur) and he has suggested few as below:

Rs. 8000 9" Android.

Rs. 1250 stereo frame.

Rs. 1050 bumper IR camera.

Rs. 1000 installation.

Rs. 1250 sensor.

=====

Total: Rs.12550.

Any good 9" android system brand below 10K? (Amol suggested the one shown in the pic below).

Any good component speakers? The stock speakers are good enough and we cannot have a sub in the boot as we need that space. May be a good underseat sub?

Here's what BHPian mindhunter had to say on the matter:

 I have a Zoook branded under seat subwoofer in my Ford Figo 2019 Titanium TDCi under the passenger seat, and trust me it's more than enough to complete the sound stage at a budget. No loss of boot space also. The subwoofer is powerful enough because I keep it at only 15 to 20% of its peak power.The stock speakers are good enough, if you are not a serious audiophile and you don't want to spend too much money.
I bought it at the time on Amazon for 5000 rupees and another 2K for wiring and installation.
