- Tray: i would suggest you JBL GTO 949. Its one of the best in the range.
- Amp: JBL GT-X series, on a higher range HERTZ 4 CHANNEL AMPLIFIER HE series. You can also go for Alpine or kenwood amps. A good amp will cost you around 8-10k
Wiring- Don't compromise with wiring quality. It is one of the most imp part of the system. Also do get the dampings done in the door.
If you are retaining ur old unit, you can check for RCA splitter for your 4-channel amp.
Hello adi85, first of all, thanks for your reply.
Let me give you a glimpse of the system I have at this moment. Currently I have alpine HU (refer the attached pic, stock looks), 2 JBL components (GTO I believe) in front door, 2 polk audio coaxials in the rear one and 2 polk audio 3 way 6X9 in the tray area, a rockford fosgate P1 series woofer and a 4 channel amp (luckily JBL GT X646
). So I guess RCA splitter is already available, and I already got the speaker area damped in all the door around 8 months ago. Should I opt for complete door damping?
The basic reason behind changing the setup is the lack of boot space, due to woofer.
As a temporary solution, I used to remove my woofer & drive, but I am fed up of doing the same every alternate week & in case of permanent solution this is definitely not good (keeping the same setup w/o woofer) as it wont give a good bass effect.
That's why I was planning to sell off everything, but now after some online research, discussions with friends & after reading your response, only the rear door & tray speakers along with the woofer, is available for sell.
Also, just yesterday, I got to check a pair of JBL GTO 949's running directly through KENWOOD double din HU in my friend's Octavia, and I really liked it (nice bass), so now am looking for something better than that (if any) in the similar price range.
How about GTO 950SI??? Its available online for almost 3-4K after discounts.
Also, I would request for your opinion about the cost & the brand in case of wiring, as current wiring is of not so good quality & almost 5 year old.
