    Hi Sanjeev,

    I presume that you have the Emo Pk. In this case if you change the HU, you will lose the functionality of steering mounted controls. So, it might be worth keeping the HU, which is not bad at all.

    The OEM HU does not have a "pre-out", so most installers will connect the amp to the "speaker out". This will create problems and also not sound good. You will need to attach a high to low converter in between. If this is done properly, then you will get good sound with decent speakers. The OEM speakers are bad & you will have to change them definitely. If you are a "bass lover", then put in a good sub as well.

    Regards
    Johnny

    I have installed the R1652-S 6.50" 2-Way Component System in the front doors and R152 5.25" Prime Full-Range Speaker in the rear doors in my Punto MJD E. The doors developed rattling and I am planning to upgrade the HU and also add Sub and Amp. What would be the best setup keeping my current setup in mind? Also, do I need to get the dampening done?

    @Raj06,

    Definitely get the damping done. That will make a big difference to the sound.

    If you go through the ICE section, you will find lots of options/combinations that have been installed by TFI members. Most posts have detailed descriptions with photos etc. This should help you make an informed decision.

    Regards
    Johnny
