    @Arjunbhargava, let us discuss what you want to install exactly. Installer I am sure you will be able to find someone proper in New Delhi. Some car accessories shops will do a better job, but you can go by word of mouth reference.

    I am not aware of Snapdeal's installation assistance. All depends on installers expertise. Please go through various ICE threads. Installation needs, harnesses and options chosen are well discussed.

    Yes it's active sub of class D, and as it's active so the amp is inbuilt. And no it's not under seat, I did research for the under seat shallow subs, but they are not that great as compared to the sealed once. If you prefer tight bass you should always go for sealed once, they produce very tight bass which nicely goes with any kind of tracks say classical to hip-hop. I'm using SVS SB-1000 at my home and believe me this Steelmate sub just gives me almost same experience inside the car. But yes this sub is strictly made for hatchbacks, not to be used in any sedans (for better experience).

    I had a criteria to keep the sub mobile, that's easily can be removed from the boot when required. So I insisted on active subs, and finally I narrowed down to this Steelmate, I found the bass is very tight and the build quality is very good. Best part is (touch wood), I didn't had to go for damping because till now I didn't experience any rattle or any kind of sound leak.

    It come with 2 options. If preout is there, nothing better than that, you can use your HU to activate or deactivate the sub, even you will have the control over crossover frequency. But this Sub is also having option where you can connect your Left and Right channels and then decide which frequency to process . Check the image for the controllers details ...

    pio 1790ub is good, but I'm not sure if you really want to compromise with the BT option. Coz after sometime, you will get irritated coping songs in USB drive. Now if you use smart phones, connecting them to Car HU will open lot many apps to use to and enjoy. Even I didn't took BT option when I updated my ICE, and now I fell if I could have taken the BT HU. Same as you I had 20k budget when I did the upgrade. And all this falls in the budget except the sub.

    Check Pio DEH-X4790BT - 7k
    Polk comp & Cox - 11 k

    Install this, check if you need sub then decide to install it after you get the budget. This sub is very easy to install, max 30 mins...
    Sub cost 7.5 k including installation in Bangalore.

    Also many people didn't like the Polk. But my HT is also having Polk RTiA7 & F/Xi4 with SVS sub. So I didn't took any chance. Finally it all depends how you tune all your speakers get the best out of it. But Polk / Carvin are good brands ...

    Sorry Arjun, I'm not sure about any installer in Delhi, you can also check in TeamBHP

    Skip the rear coax if you dont always have reae passengers. Even if you do and unless they are imp to you and they have an ear for good music the rear company fitted speaker will do. Instead get damping in atleast your front 2 doors @ 1500 per door approx. Will cost same or less than your rear coaxial. In time do get an amp and good wiring for your fron 6501 components.

    Regarding installation in Delhi the best two are Driven and Motor Concepts with the former being a little more expensive. I was charged 2000 as installation at MC ( only labour charge ). I had had all my equipment from different merchants depending on best price. Dampmat bulk pack was ordered online from PurpleKart store in ebay for Rs 7598.00
