      Cool suggestion for Ford Figo Exi ICE Setup

      Hi

      I am buying Ford Figo Exi Diesel and interested in ICE setup. I am not much aware of its setup so i want suggestion from you guys about HU,front and rear door speakers.
      I am not yet interested in spending a lot so i am not putting amp or sub woofer(in parcel trey) as of now but i would definitely like to have option for it in HU.
      I have following questions :-
      1) Figo OEM's HU is 2 Din so is it possible to go for single din without compromising looks of dashboard ?
      2) Which HU will fit and look best in Diamond White?
      3) As car will be mostly occupied by two persons so i would like to have better speakers in front door ?
      4) Is it possible to have seperate tweeter somewhere closer to rear view setup?
      5) Is there any set of speaker which has built-in decent bass/woofer effect?
      6) What type of cabling will be required ?
      7) Will they cut some fittings in doors to install speakers ?
      8) Will installing aftermarket speakers void ASS warranty ?

      Lets say i spend around 20K on HU,front and rear door speakers (with option to upgrade on amp and subwoofer) in future
      Please help me.

      For 20k, the best options you have are as follows:

      Kenwood KDU-u6046 - 8k - 9k
      KDC-U6046 | 1DIN Receivers | Car Electroics | Kenwood

      Front Components - Morel Maximo - 5.5K
      Rear Coaxials - 3.5K
      Install - 1k

      The head unit comes with 3 preouts which will make it easy to upgrade at a later stage.

      As i have not yet bought the vehicle,i have option to go for Ford Figo's default music system. Dealer quoted around 19K for OEM music system. HU "looks" decent but i will need definitely need front speakers upgrade. Lets assume i spend 19K on it then how much extra i need to spend to get decent ICE setup?

      It will fit well there are dashboard mounts to fit 1 Din and about looks it all depends on your taste. 1 Din has at par or more SQ than 2 din. If you are concerned only on looks then 2 din is the way to go.

      This is my first car and i am not aware of many obvious things so please forgive me for my ignorance. Looks matter but not at the cost of SQ. I was not aware of dashboard mount so i was worried that there might be some Gap visible if one din is installed in 2 Din's place.

      dont worry shailem sir. Single din units look good. Figo Exi does not come with a HU but just the dashkit.

      If you want an SQ 2 din head unit, JVC KW-R 900 BT is the best bet. It retails at around 16K IIRC. It comes with three 5V pre-outs, DSP with time alignment, TI/Burr brown DAC, support for wav from USB etc. wav files make a real difference on SQ. Also chuck the rear speakers for now.

      After seeing costs of various models of 2 Din HU,i think i can only manage decent 1 Din HU within 20K budget.
      i have one doubt here. Is there any issue if we install component speakers on front doors ? Does magnet interfere with metal ?
      How about installing component speakers in rear parcel trey area? Will it more advisable SQ wise?

      Thank to guys for helping me. I researched and found something which looks decent and within my budget.
      Here is my refined Reqs:-
      Total Budget is 20K
      1)1 DIN Pioneer/Kenwood Head unit capable of playing DVD,bluthooth,USB with one or more preamp with dedicated subwoofer output= Budget 8 to 10 K
      2)One set component speakers(getting power from HU) in front door = Budget 6K ( Is it necessary to have amp with component speakers ?)
      3) 2 way or 3 way coax speakers for rear doors = Budget 3 to 4 K
      Future plan is to have 2 or 4 channel amp which will power sub woofer.


      Can some one please suggust speakers and HU with brand and model number within my budget ?
      Where should tweeters be mounted?
      Can someone suggest me good installer and shop in bangalore where i can audition ICE setup and finally go for installation.
      I live in HSR Layout so near by areas like koramangla is preferred.
