Congrats buddy, Scorpio is truly a very value for money & excellent SUV.

and pio 6050 for 9k

jbl C5 for 1050/- pair

also what sub and amp ?
I think 6050 is a very very old model & hence pricing seems on the higher side.

Go for a Pioneer head unit with USB/Aux, go for a JBL 4 channel amp and buy a JBL 12" sub.

For rear speakers, PLEASE have the rear speakers on the rear door (second row) & not on the boot door. If installed on the boot door, they are hardly audible unless you have an amp for them, in that case, you will need 2 amps.

To install speakers on rear door, you will have to cut the door panel, so be careful with the installer, he should be a professional.

Is your Scorpio a 7 seater or 8 seater?

For better advice, specify your budget, you can get better brands.

I had a Scorpio, you can see my setup here.

I had a Scorpio, you can see my setup here.
was eagerly waiting for inputs from you.

actually i have a limited budget something in the range of ~10k as of now.

could you please mention some shops for ICE in mumbai.

all those queries were @ opera house i had inquired today.

was thinking in line of a basic setup like a JBL x333 the JBL C5 and then a sub and an amp.

no one now buys a CD now. a pen drive should do fine right?

also of all shops i could find today only prime @ opera house was vfm even with bill and warranty.

prices from other shops were high even for a grey item. [frustration]

as to your other queries it a seven seater scorp.

most of the shops i inquired in opera house had no idea what dynamat is [anger]

any vfm shops near borivali ?

In such a budget, you wont get HU + Speakers + Amp + Sub.

I would suggest you do a stage wise upgrade with future upgrades in mind.

I have PM'ed you.

I never use CDs, i dont have an iPod, so pen drive it is! But CDs are the best when it comes to SQ (Sound Quality).

as to your other queries it a seven seater scorp.
It means you can fit a sub in between the jump seats, like I did.

most of the shops i inquired in opera house had no idea what dynamat is [anger]
Avoid such shops, go to a pro.


I guess, in 10k, all you can do is buy a decent HU with front components. Later when you save enough, upgrade by adding an amp, rear speakers, sub & if you want, damping.

Choose good wiring, dont fringe on that.

two pairs of speakers (JBL CS-5)[Rs. 1150 x2]

pricing @ prime, opera house with B/W(2 years).

^ the thing is once things are put in order i doubt anything in it will be changed until it goes kaput.

speaking from the armadas experience.

Dad comes from that school of thought : "if it aint broke, don't change it ".

so if the upgrade does happen it might take another 2- 3 years when i start to earn a decent enough salary :tongue:

Yes no problem , the damping can wait for 2-3 years. For your current setup it really is not required , just save the money instead.

inquired about sunfilms @ 3M car care in borivali.

RE 35 +CS70 costs a whopping 13K + [surprise]

thinking of going with garware ice cool and or other substitutes

even v-kool which was supposed to be expensive than 3M was quoted me for 8.1k for vb-50 and vb-60 :confused:

What HU have you decided? Only component speakers require an amp , normal speakers don't. For 10k budget you can't get amp+comp speakers+HU.

Welcome to Hawk gang buddy.

Wish you miles of Happy & Safe Motoring.

Btw regarding ICE, raj has already answered your query.

My HU is pathetic, with 4 components Hertz serving my purpose, which costed 9k for set of 2.

Thanks mukeshus.
Btw whats your HU buddy?
Set of 2 (2 pairs i suppose) of hertz costed you 9k and they are still pathetic [surprise]

whats your take on the JBL CS-5?
Any alternates in the same price which may be better?
And your take on sunfilms other than 3M?
Vb-50 and vb -60 worth the value at 8k?
Sorry for Too many questions :tongue:

My HU is Nippon OEM.

Components are not getting enough to their capacity, because of crappy OEM.
Main reason to retain them, will lose steering controls.
No i haven't gone for any ICE installation.
May be raj can give you more insight.

I got free sunfilm from dealer, which was of Garware.

V kool is also a better option , if you are opting for front windshield go for Vkool Day & Night.

As it would help a lot, but i haven't needed it so far.

ok my dealer was charging 3.5 k for garware film and he said you can get better films done from the outside.

i am sure professional installers could use a workaround for you to install your own HU.

current priority is for sunfilms.

have asked them (3M)to reduce their pricing on the sunfilms.

lets see how they fare with a new quote.

else will get those v-kool vb-50 and 70 one installed which were priced for about 8k.
