I am planning to replace my factory installed car audio system in my Lancer, I have decided after reading all around that i shud go in for the following system, but i need help from u guys as i have selected the best system for my price or i shud amend it.

1. HU: Pioneer 7150 or 5190 (my choice is for 7150 coz of its looks) though both have 3 RCA outs.

2. Rear speakers: JBL GTO 948 400 W 3-way 6x9 OR Infinity REF9633i300W 3-Way 6" X 9" Coaxial Speaker


3. Front components: JBL GT5-S265C OR 608 C (plz advice on which is better and VFM)

4. SUB: JBL CS1215 T (1100W 12") or SONY XS-GTX150LE with 1300 watt with box.

5. Amp: JBL GT5-S644 (800watt 4 Ch) [for powering the rears and front compos]

6. Mono Amp: JBL GTO3501 (I saw on JBL website tht SUB is 275 W RMS @ 4 ohms but mono amp is 225W RMS @ 4 ohm,,, so will this combination be compatible or shud i got for SONY XM-GTR3301D mono amp which has 330W @ 4 ohm,, which wud be better for the JBL bass tube)

I think Pioneer 7150 will get around 10-12K, and the JBL stuff around 23K,,I want to limit myself to below 35K or at max to 40 K, so plz advice me on the same, or if i can get a good 2DIN HU with LCD display with 3 RCA out
I might extend it a bit, so please advice me on my picks as to which i chose and which to leave. I want really good sound and Tight thumping bass.

am desperate to add a mono amp, is it really worth it and is the jbl mono amp fine.

I think your choice is good. But do you really need to power the rear speakers? If you want to save some money i would suggest you omit mono amp from your list and power the subwoofer and front comps with your 4 channel amplifier. But if you are ready to spend the amount go ahead with your setup. But i think its better to avoid Sony in ICE , many members have complained of Sony products conking off under two years!


I am having JBL mono amp in my car and its good. Mono amp is the perfect amp for powering a sub and it will give a tight punchy bass.


But most important of all i hope you have a good installer in your hands. An installer can make or break a setup! Again another important part is the enclosure for the sub , go for ported enclosure if you want loud bass to be heard outside the car for show-off. And don compromise on wiring , go for a good branded wiring kit preferably 6AWG will cost something around 4.5k

@ truly mittal: you choice is good.

1) Pioneer 7150 is better.
2) I would prefer the GTO 948.
3) 608C is better but JBL discontinued it, check if its available.
4) PLEASE JBL 1215 sub. No sony & no basstube. Only subwoofer.

Pioneer HU with USB/AUX/3 preouts : 8000
Front components - Illusion/Kicker/Ground Zero : 7000
Rear coaxials - Illusion/JBL/Polk/Kicker : 4000
4 ch amp for front & rear speakers - JBL S644 : 5000
Sub - Ground Zero/ID/Rockford Fosgate/Kicker : 8000
Wiring + RCA cables + Fuse + sealed subwoofer box : 3000
Labour : 1000

Thats a total of 36,000. If your max budget is 40k, get a 2 ch amp for the sub else better extend your budget by 4k & get a mono amp for the sub...
hope this was of some help.[/QUOTE]
