    It shouldn't void any warranty if you are not cutting any wires. Many have upgraded without any issues. I have changed the HU, Speakers and installed amp too. No issues with warranty as no wire cutting. New setup is entirely on new speaker and power cables, so hardly any issue

    @Sachin patel if you want marked improvement in sound, use Infinity Kappa 5.5" coaxials front and use Audio CD or quality ripped files high bitrate VBR. Or WMA Pro ripped files prefreably 196 kbps. That way you don't need to worry about wiring. Evo or modern Fiat HUs are pretty good quality. SQL wise, definitely sound lot better with Audio CDs for obvious reasons of sampling.

    Don't mix brands and if you want punch use Kappa 6x9s for rear. Tray can be fabricated for Punto or might be available depending on your location. In Mumbai for example you get prefabed tray for Punto I was told.

    Other option is line in capable amp 4 channel for 4 channels and signal splitter cable for Sub amp or Active Sub.

    You can split a speaker singal and pass it to an Active Subwoofer. Some do allow speaker inputs, else you can use line convertor to convert that speaker output to RCA and feed it to Active Subwoofer. Do check Blaupunkt - GTb 8 A - 8 Inch Active Subwoofer Enclosure (150 W), might have speaker input. Not sure though.

    XLB 300 for example has hi level input, which is what you need to avoid line convertor.

    Hi Guys.

    Planning to get JBL Speakers for my Punto Evo. 2 Sets of Speakers + Amplifier (Component).

    Does JBL 2 channel amp with oval speakers give good treble and bass effect? or 4 channel? please advice. I am planning to upgrade as stock speakers doesn't have any good effects :(

    Please let me know if it will work good :).
