    Ankit : They are indeed very good for the money as I have heard them in a punto itself so I now how they sound, the best part is they never BITE ur ears, no matter what music you play, they have more of a natural sounding nature like the rainbows but a bit more bassy which if u are a bass fan would appreciate. rest u can also look at rainbow DL C-6.2 which cost 13k but are a little rich on vocals and lot less bassy

    Other than DD and rainbows, try auditioning Morel maximos and illusion Electras. They both are very good VFM.

    Phew have given you the best options - go for front components and sub, and chuck out rear co-axial speakers.

    OT: Phew, why do you say stay away from JBL? personally, i have felt in their price band, they offer the best SQ. The low end pioneer set do not offer much in terms of SQ, while JBL333 does offer better sounds than many units which costs more than twice.

    No specific reasons but have experienced them and have noticed that buy shelling out another 1-2k one can get better HU's and added features also there reliability in the long run is still a question, knowing that a particular brand does not specialize in HU's. Nothing wrong with them otherwise. They make sense only if u are having very basic sound setup. Higher the speaker and amps go, u soon realize they are not upto the mark, so y block money in the first place thats all

    Hm... Interesting view point :)

    JBL is owned by Harman International group, which is a very big player in OEM electronics, and supply to many manufactures.

    I agree that JBL is new into branded HU scene, but I think since they are into speakers a lot (including JBL, Infinity, H-K etc) i personally think they would have done enough research before coming up with their own brand HU.
    At the low price point, X333 offers you 3 Preouts of 4V each - I do not see any otehr decent HU which offers this features, though JBL is lacking on iPOD control.

    I agree that if you have the range to go for high end speakers and amp, there are much better options, but for those who want to get a ICE set up in 15~20K, IMHO, JBL presents a strong case, unless you are behind full iPOD Control.

    AFAIK, JBL does not manufacture HU's. They are speaker specialists. Anyway, at what price are you getting this?

    I would always go for a company which specializes in HUs. Did you look at Kenwood?
