    Hi fiatians :D,

    I have been wanting to ICE my punto for a while and its time now. I am planning to get the speakers setup without drilling any holes to prevent rattling/vibrations. I will be going for components at front and regular speakers at back. I am leaning towards Alpine due to SQ and VFM. I am looking for decent entry/mid-range speakers.

    Below are the configurations that I have in mind. I also have a 2-channel 250w Amp with me which I plan to use for this setup. I also do have a pair of Pioneer 6x9 speakers atm in the rear tray. I am open to suggestions, feel free to provide me your suggestions :smile:.

    Front Components: Alpine SPS-610C 6.5" (OR) Alpine - SPG 17CS 6.5"
    Back Speakers: Alpine SPS-510 5.25" (OR) Alpine SPG-13C2 5.25"

    Music Genre: Alternate Metal/Heavy Metal (Metallica, Disturbed , LP etc) , lots of Dubstep (Skrillex, Dj Datsik etc) and some Rap/Hip-Hop.

    Query: Is it possible to install 6.5" coaxials at the back without drilling ? And how about the spacers? :confused1

    Other Options:

    Front Components: JBL GTO609C Components / Hertz - DSK 165.3 <- (Are the DSK series good entry levels?)
    Rear Speakers: any JBL equivalent speakers


    I have seen a quite a few speakers in snapdeal for good prices for Alpine/JBL ~6.5k for comps and about 3.5-4k for rear speakers after discount. Are they real/fake ones?

    I am willing to purchase it online/from local store. Any one know where to get Alpine dealers in Cochin?

    Please go post your valuable suggestions. If you have a good configuration around 10k+/-1k, please post it here. Thank you in advance.

    Regards

    Try comps from focal- auditor series. Better vfm.

    Small World, even I was going to refer Muneem's name. He is travelling to Bangalore currently but should be able to help you out nevertheless. Remember to audition as much as possible before deciding.

    He might be able to help you out with the mounting cage too, Ciao

    First of all, drilling alone does not cause rattling or vibrations. I have 6.5" JBL GTO 608c in the front and 6.5" co-axials in the rear doors. Both the speakers (front as well as rear) are mounted on MDF spacer rings.

    I would not recommend a 5.5" co-axial. Woofer size matters they say.

    Regarding buying online, I bought a Pioneer HU from Snapdeal this March. They were offering around 30-40% discount on a few models. If you are getting a good deal then go for it but first do check for seller's reputation (score out of 5 based on feedback).
