How much did you get the above 2 items for? Do you find the GT5 giving enough power to drive the GT5-12 in sealed box well enough?

I don't remember the exact figures. Together (including the sub enclosure) it was approx 12K, if I am correct.

My kind of listening, which is more on the softer side and for my budget, the GT5 is doing a good job

The GZ MK2 sub is very nice loud and clear,as per my experience it cant handle much of Trance or House music with constant BPM,it sounds too good if you play Slow rock.Bollywood and some music with good detailed vibes,every sound details can be heard clearly.True VFM.. congrats Nishant,the Blau GT4 is a very nice amp
So when can i audition your system.Have you done the damping.If not i would suggest you do the damping it will make alot of noticible difference.
