Subwoofer and amp?

Recommended Posts

hi guys, i am planning to book a Scorpio mHawk in 4-5 days and i am interested in installing a subwoofer in it. my dad has prohibited from installing it from anywhere except the showroom. they are offering me a Sony Xplod 1100 watts subwoofer for 3500/- and its amplifier for 3500/-. what do you think? are sony woofers good? also, if possible, i'll get the speakers changed too. which brand is better among sony and pioneer?

also, is it necessary to get an amp for the front and rear speakers too?

thanks.

Getting installed at the showroom is generally not  a good idea but if your dad has already decided about it, find out if there are any other options for the sub and amp or if they will install if you buy the stuff from outside (I don't think they will but nothing wrong in asking).

To me Pioneer is a much better product when it comes to car audio.

Sony subwoofers are no good to me but ask them for a demo, listen to the same sub and amp they want to sell to you and then you decide whether they are good enough for you!

It is always better to power the speakers from an amplifier, the sound will be cleaner. But then you will have to get a 4 channel amp or two amplifiers. How much do you want to spend?

7000 bucks isn't much even just for an amplifier!! A decent 4 channel amp will cost atleast 8000 to my knowledge.

If you are not to particular about sound and are on a budget just stick to the Sony!

@ 5u3zero: actually he's talking about the color of the car.

but sorry rssh, we are buying it in white. i hate those stickers n i know it looks lil bit ok in brown, but i have been eyeing for a scorpio in white for long!

also, the dealer informs me that the alloys in the scorpio cant be changed as then the tyretronics (tyre pressure sensor) in the car wont work...!!! dont ask me how disappointed i was...

hey raj_5004

the speakers you get in the scorpio vlx are quite decent unless you are a hardcore audiophile!

yes do fit the woofer, but no need to change the present speakers

i feel they are good enough
