    Hello friends,

    Currently I am having the factory fitted sound system for my Evo which I purchased this April. Even though the sound quality of the speakers are good with decent bass, I want to install a sub woofer for some extra bass. I will be retaining all other speakers.

    When I enquired at Friend car accessories at Chennai, they told I have to buy converter(as head unit is OEM), amp and sub which would cost minimum 15k. Is converter really required for our head unit to install a sub?

    Is there any better option to install sub within 11k?

    Also I am afraid about installation as I heard tampering the wire may void warranty. So i wanted to install sub in a reputed shop either at Chennai or Madurai.

    Could you guys please provide some suggestions?

    Go for JBL MS bass pro 12 active (inbuilt amp). It's a quality product of MS series which is not like the usual cheap crap jbl sells in India. This one comes with a passive radiator too.
    It can be run without convertor but please recheck with more than one installers.

    Update : it was available recently on Amazon for 11-12k; seems to have been sold off.

    @asimpleson Thanks, I will check with the installers for this model.

    Or is there any one who has installed JBL MS bass pro 12 active in their cars with OEM head unit? Please advise.

    Is there any reputed shops in Chennai who does installation without voiding the warranty?

    Hello friends,
    Currently I am having the factory fitted sound system for my 2011 Punto (emotion pack). i am planning to upgrade my speakers. so i brought Infinity 6030CS component speakers for front and JBL GTO 638 coaxial speakers for rear.

    I don't want to change the factory fitted head unit. please suggest me whether to go without amp or amp is mandate.

    If Amp is mandatory, please suggest me a good one.

    @Karan, i recenly added just a subwoofer to my stock audio system. I dint go for 12 inch subs instead sticked with 8inch which is
    Blaupunkt - GTb 8 A - 8 Inch Active Subwoofer Enclosure felt very much adequate. Coverter just cost less that 800 bucks. I had this installed from Dazz D cars without causing any damages to the existing wiring
