    throw out those crap quality OEM speakers in dustbin. & upgrade with 6'' door speakers.Quality of OEM speakers is so crap that auto-rickshaw drivers are using better quality speakers than OEM speakers.

    Yes, PowerBass it is, thanks for correcting me.
    Spoke to Ramie and he has suggested Focal components, PowerBass 400.4 amp.

    Not really convinced with Focal's as am sold on Kicker components. So lets see how it goes.

    Cheers

    Ah Ramie again! That guy is a great installer and a gem of a person. Will not recommend wrong ever. And just go with the pricing he gives you. He's a good friend too. In fact I would be going to him only for my install. He did my friend's car (Etios) recently and that sounds fabulous.

    Yep, nice fella. With a rather limited budget of 25K he's sent me a quote with all the things that he plans to install in my car.
    Should I put it up here?

    Thanks

    Yes! Would be interesting to see!

    EDIT - I hope you have planned for damping, at least the front doors?

    Ramie did mention that he would damp the door, so leaving that on him.
    Here's the 2 options listed by Ramie...

    Option 1:
    Front stage: Focal 165A1 Access 2-way components - 80wRMS
    Rear stage: MTX RT265 3-way coaxials - 65wRMS
    Amp: PowerBass 400.4x4 channel amplifier - 67wRMS
    8AWG Wiring + 2 RCA + 60A safety fuse block + REF16.50
    spacer rings
    Hi-Low level modulators and harness

    Option 2:
    Front stage: Rubicon RBC 6 - 2 way components - 90wRMS
    Rear stage: PowerBass s65T 2-way coaxials - 50wRMS
    Sub: PowerBass RT-12 PP-cone SVC 12" - 300wRMS
    Amp: PowerBass 400.4x4 channel amplifier - 67wRMS
    Amp 2: PowerBass 200.2x2 channel amplifier - 40wRMS
    8AWG Wiring + 2 RCA + 60A safety fuse block + REF16.50
    Spacer rings
    1.1cu.ft. Sealed enclosure box.

    I am more inclined to go with the second option however with a few modifications.
    My plan is to have just one 4 channel amp, do away with Rubicon compnents and instead opt for Kicker ES series or Focal's.

    Hey LL,
    I am from Bombay, you?

    Cheers

    Guys,
    Am in a bit of a conundrum.

    How important is the installer considering most the ICE systems like speakers, HiLo converter, sub etc are all mostly plug and play?
    The reason for this confusion is because I asked the prices of the system Ramie suggested for my car and shockingly the prices mentioned by the local dealers is substantially cheaper.

    I am really tempted to go to the local dealers for my ICE setup who have promised further discounts.

    Please guide me through this.

    Thanks

    HI Italia-Linea" Can you confirm for Android devices?
    I usedan android device, it acted no more than just another pendrive. I was able to play songs on sd card via default HU, but no audio played using android music player was passed from Android phone to HU via usb. I might give a try again.
