    Hey congrtas Karan for the Ice. If the rattles continues, i would advise not only you but everyone who has done just the speaker upgrades to get the damping done on only the two front doors. That should solve the porblems.
  2. Congrats Karan. May be plastic removed while installing the speakers is the issue. As Ansal suggested, please get the daming done.

    ICE Advice for Noob GP Active 1.3 Owner

    Hey guys just took delivery of my BNW GP 1.3 Active , since it doesnt come with any audio equipment , i need help in selecting each and every audio component , my requirements are head unit , 2 sets of coaxials or components (whichever u may think will suit my requirement and budget) , an amplifier (4way or 2 way based on ur suggestion) and a subwoofer or a bass tube , my budget is 25000 Rs . I have already selected the head unit which is pioneer 5250/5290 , it is costing me 7000rs without the bill . my requirements are nice solid punching bass over which i can hear the song , sound clarity also is important , remember in my city i can only get my hands on jbl, infinity , sony , pioneer , kenwood , alpine , jvc . your help would be really appreciated . on other mods for my car i m going with 15inch/195 apollo tyres with chrome HR alloys and sunfilm .

    Welcome bones
    I would suggest Kenwood 4channel Amps (4K -6k), Infinity or Polk Components(5.5-6.5K), Polk co-axials (3K), JBL or Inifnity Subwofer (4-6K) and Soundproofing (3-5k) you can use bridged mode of 4chanel amp or if budget permits go for mono amp to power up subs.

    The factory fitted blaupunkt speakers are really crappy and I intend to replace it ASAP.
    Do you guys have any suggestions on what should I go for.

    I am getting JBL GT5 S265 for 5K (for a set of 4) and GT6 S699 for 4.8K (set of 2).
    The other one I am considering is Sony XPLOD : XS-GT16412 (price on the sony website)
    Do let me know if you have fitted anything else.
    Also lemme know if someone has fit a subwoofer and an amp?

    hey sid , please do not buy any sony car audio , they simple put are bad . try getting jbl 948 coaxial speakers or jbl gto 608 components both are pretty good and cost 4000 a pair ..they work even better with an amp..

    I was wondering, since most tweeters which come with decent components wont fit in the space provided near the door handle. I saw some components which have the tweeter on the speaker grill itself. So 2 questions!
    1) Some say it affects the sound stage! some say it does not! so which is it?
    2) Which speakers are available which can be fitted like this? in a 4-7k budget (per pair)?

    I do not want to fit eh tweeters outside or by making holes in the door panels! Help!

    I have dont this on my ICE install. It really doesnt make much difference to the sound stage and there are no negative side effects.

    I Have Polk audio Components and the tweeters are installed as mentioned. Here's the link to the ICE, it has pictures as well of the install.
