Thumbs up Best music system(DVD player,speakers & amps)


Hi all,

I have Chevrolet aveo brand new car and my budget for in car music system with speakers is 50 K.

MY priorities are need the crystal clear sound like my home used Bose speakers and also need the punch effect which nice clear banging base effect( not like loud noise).
please suggest me which brand to go for to get player,amps (if needed) and speakers .

i heared that JBL,JVC,pionner,polkaudio are one of the best ones..pelase suggest me which one to go suiting my budget also tell me the best brands to go for which has crystal clear sound output with nice base effect.

Hi,
If I had 50K for a sound system for my car, the following would be the probable components I'd select. Please remember that I do not know the exact price of these components but it should not be way off your target budget:

Pioneer DEH-4190SD head unit: Excellent feature set and decent sound quality. IMHO, Pioneer gives you the best bang-for-the-buck quotient in the market, though the quality is not what it used to be.

Infinity Kappa 5 1/4" 2-way components for the front: These are priced slightly on the higher side but well worth it IMHO. Though made by the same parent company as JBL, these are much better sounding and has unbeatable clarity in it's price range. Strangely, most dealers seem reluctant to stock the Infinity brand and you usually would have to have them ordered.

Infinity Kappa 6X9 3-way multi-comp. for the rear.

Pioneer GM-6300F 4-ch. amp: You would really need a decent amp for the Infinity components and the sound would be more than just a step above the built-in amps on the head-units.

Pioneer TS-W1207D4
12" dual-coil sub: Though I do not have experience with this particular model, I've always found Pioneer subs to have good VFM for their price. Make sure the installer mounts this sub on a sealed box and not a ported one to ensure tight and fast bass.

Pioneer GM-D8400M Class D amp for the sub: If the cost of this pushes your budget over the limit, you could go in for a cheaper class D amp from Sony or similar and still not lose too much sound quality. Other than the sub-amp, I would stay way clear of anything Sony.

This might be slightly over what you would be looking to spend, but IMHO these would be well worth it and might even end up sounding better than your home setup. Whichever way you go, please post back with your decision and listening impressions. Good luck!

Re: Best music system(DVD player,speakers & amps)

I personally feel Blaunkupt is equally good.
Do not blow money on any one componant.
Also are you using normal cables?? As car audio enthu too use special cables.

You wanted a dvd player - so you want to watch moves in car? So what type of screen you are looking for? You have not discussed this.

Also be wary from the people who claim that they are supplying the best... and it is good you have budget - cause one of the most expensive car audio componants are Mcintosh

McIntosh | Car Audio

I did not get prices but this ebay page is sufficiant - you may end up spending 75 K on single componant!!!

mcintosh, Car Amplifiers, Car Audio In-Dash Units items on eBay.com

Anyway stick to a budget - and do not think bose is benchmark -- as I was a bose devotee earlier who has matured ,,, and note - bose car audio systems are not available as aftermarket fitments!! So anyone offering it must be fake!!

Re: Best music system(DVD player,speakers & amps)

I just done it for my Getz.
1st need a good player - alpines or some top end Kenwood for sound quality. consider one with support mass storage std USB port. (we can attached a HDD with songs on it.)
2nd Speakers i taken a pair of 6.5" Component speaker from Bull audio with 10" sub woofer.
3rd a 4 ch amp 1st two channel to drive my front door component speakers next two channel clubbed together to drive the SUB. I took the amp also from bull audio for a better matching with speakers. TCO: INR 48k. also need speaker cable, ICs and amp wiring kit, Frond door dampening- noise kill.

Re: Best music system(DVD player,speakers & amps)

Focal is a reputed brand and have god quality stuff but i find them a bit too expensive for the sound they deliver.specially the focal polyglass
However if you lke them and can afford them then its good.
go ahead
JBL Power series components are also good here
Spend upto 12k here ( if you are driving)

however just make sure they are component speakers ( 2 6inch midbasses and 2 tweeters with crossovers) and not coaxials
for the budget hes given you they better be compos.

Now as for the amp and rear speakers his suggestion of MTX is ok .
you can do better definetely
Try the JBL 1004 Amp its avaible for 13-14k with bill and 10 k in the grey market.its a 4 channel amp that deleivers 100rms odd per channel
There is also another 4 channel ground zero amp which retails for 11k and delivers 75W per channel


For the sub MTX is fine according to your description of the bass you want.
However there are brands like Ground Zero , Illusion and ID if you can afford them.
i love ID's personnaly
spend 8-10k here

For the rears it doesnt mater much if youre the one driving.
MTX is fine and so are Infinity Kappa 6*9
i would advice not to spend over 7-8 k here ( again thats if youre the one driving)

bridge 2 channels of the 4 channel amp for the sub and use the other two channels for the component speakers upfront.
The rear 6*9's can be driven off the HU

you will need to spend 2k forbuilding the sub box,3-4k on wiring and 2 k on the install

that should be about 50k

now if you dont drive and sit behind then things will change a bit

If you are satisfied with Bose at home then you can get the same effect for much less than 50K, go to any audio store and get a mp3 player with the appropriate car speaker and dont even both with an amp and you should be fine.

One thing to remember, you car is affected by external and internal noises unlike your home. So getting it to sound really good (unlike Bose ofcourse) will be hard and expensive and time consuming.

Re: Best music system(DVD player,speakers & amps)

What ever you buy, there are a couple of things I have found to be invaluable in a car system.

1. An USB port.
2. A full function remote control.
3. A screen for the player.

Over the last two days, I plugged a 4 GB USB stick in my car's player, and realized it is near impossible to choose the song you want - by title, by singer, or by album. I had over 300 songs, and got tired after sometime. I am so used to seeing the list on my computer or TV. I think a good remote should help.

I think a player with a screen would also help by displaying the directory structure. That with a good remote would solve the issue.

Cheers

Re: Best music system(DVD player,speakers & amps)

Hi Guys thanks for all your suggestions
The technitian was telling me about FOCAL polykevlar front speakers
he said it cost me around 16 k pair and it was the best speakers for listeninig to rock kind of music..pleas suggest me if its true.
Or else can i use MTX itself for front speakers ......?

also he told me tht he wil use amp which has 75W rms 4 way output each and he will bridge 2 output(150) to give it to subwoofer , is it ok or do i need more power to give it to subwoofer?

mainly i am rock,hiphop music lover please suggest me the best to go for..

One more thing, first i planned ot buy a touchscreen DVD player from JVC which costs me around 25k withh bill but since i am a best music love the technitian told me not to go for DVD players as these dosent produce good sound,so he suggested me alpine mp3 player whcih costs me 16K in grey market.is it good ot buy grey markt and does mp3 player produce good sound than dvd player?
