Not planning to change the head unit and the speakers but would like a little thump as the system is pretty flat....mostly will be the only one in the car so am not planning to mess with the rear speakers either...My budget would be somewhere around 20k to 25k... Can stretch it a little if really worth it!!!
Please suggest a good combination of component, amp and sub that i can go for in this budget!!!
hi , paritosh ,
well i am from guj too.
I have the same car. it's still in gujarat due to some RTO delay.
but i can give some of my opinion to you.
go for infinity or polk audio.
Infinity - Infinity - 6030cs
polk - db6501 or db5251 Polk Audio - db Series - Technical Specifications
this both will be way better then jbl imo
2.Amplifier - imo
if you cannot stretch your budget thn JBL gto 504E - JBL - Product Support - GTO-504E
this amp will not give the best out of your subwoofer but it will run your comp smoothly.
or if you can spend more upto 14k for amp , but will give the best output from your speakers and full punch from your subwoofer.
1..JBL GTO1004E [I own this and it's been working perfectly] JBL - Product Support - GTO1004E
2..kicker ex 450.4 or dx 500.4
one of my friend just got the kicker ex450.4 --> http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/fo...tml#post104294
it's good amp too
For auditor , we had bad experience. one of my friend bought auditor amp and got it replaced 4 times , still some issues and finally bought powerbass amp.
Focal products are way too costly , it will be totally out of your budget. if you can spend 1 lakh , then i will suggest you focal.
rockford subwoofer are good. you can buy any of them according to how loud bass you want. but keep in mind , after seperating them from different brands , in any product more RMS means better quality.
Even infinity subwoofer are good.
I have infinity ref 1260w connected with jblGTO1004E - shakes car properly. Infinity - ref 1260w
Or Infinity kappa would be the best , but if you buy this you must buy better amp.- Infinity - kappa 100.9w
dont buy whatever your dealer gives you. first read manual of sub. every sub need different cubic ft box. In case of infinity ref 1260w , 2.25 cubic ft is written in manual. it means length X height X width = 2.25 ... let's take 1.7 X 1.4 X 1 would be the best. imo
buy ported sub box and not sealed one.
Coming to price[maximum should be] -
1.infinity 6030cs - 6k
2.polk - ??
1.JBL GTO504E ~ 10k [not sure]
2.JBL GTO1004E = 13k [sure i have got one
3.Kicker ex 450.4 = 12k [nickandre just bought it]
4.Kicker dx 500.4 = ??
1.Rockford = ??
2.Infinity ref 1260w= 5.5k [i bought it for tht price in bangalore,it may vary little bit but not much]
3.Infinity kappa ~ 7k
Subbox ~1.5k or less
Wiring kit X 2 = 1.5k X 2 = 3k
Hi-low converter X 2 = got to check their price yet unknown [there is no preout
in stock unit so we will need this]
According to your budget , the best would be - infinity 6030cs + Kicker 450.4 + infinity ref 1260w or similar rockford.
including everything it should cost you around 27 to 28k. This is best in this budget i guess.
