I really appreciate your reply but i want basic specifications as to what i should go for as the varieties available in the market now is enormous. Kindly suggest what i should for the amp, subs and are the Jl audio that i mention earlier good enough.
I would say, leave the JLs and get something cheaper, so that you can get an amplifier also in the budget. Setting gains on the amplifier will help you tune the system better (giving more power to front 4" than rear ovals) and will give a better soundstage.
2012 version didn't have door provisions, so you have to get 4" coaxials for the front, 6x9" ovals for the rear on an MDF tray and a good 4 channel amplifier. All this in 27k, leaving a good 3k margin for labour, spacers (if needed), connectors, speaker wire, etc.
Get the Blaupunkt 470SF or JBL 644SI, both are good amplifiers. Blaupunkt is more bang for the buck but if you want a more familiar brand, JBL is the one. It will cost under 5.5k.
Hertz DCX100, Polk 401 and Kicker ES40 are good 4" coaxials. Kicker is the most bang for the buck and will cost under 3k.
For rear coaxials, you can get JBL GTO Series (949, 699 or 959) or Pioneer or Hertz or Blaupunkt 6x9 coaxials. I would choose JBL over any of these in this price range. Cost would be under 5k.
Get Fusion/Focal/Scosche/Ground Zero 8Ga amplifier wiring kit. It will cost you under 4k, but if you want near 1k mark, get Fusion. Focal PK8 is also good at 3k.
Get an MDF tray made for the cad with 3/4inch thick MDF. It will cost you around 800 bucks, but anyway take aside 1k for it.
So, I think all this fits your budget - and even saved around 9k. If you want to invest this amount, get the door damped with Dampmat (10k for bulk pack, enough for full car) or get a better amplifier like JBL GTO1004 or GTO804EZ or Lightning Audio or Pioneer 4 channel. Cost would be around 10k roughly.
Try to audition the brands before deciding as all of them have different sound signatures. Good luck with the purchase!
