KB100... here is a link that sorta answers your query... you gotta love the internet... saves typing...

http://www.axiomaudio.com/power.html

Well, in short... the JBL GTO1202D is 93dB sensitive and the Hertz ES300D is 97dB sensitive. In theory, all things being equal, the Hertz will play louder... However, while loudness is important, it is suggested you hear and choose the sub you like better. You may like the sound of a 90dB sub better than a 97dB or vice versa. So while sensitivity is an important consideration, let it not be your only one.

Thanks Gunbir... Will go thru that site - But I am more interested in that statement Navin made about he db of the regular speakers - not the Sub... Something about "sensitivity" .. Does it work in the same fashion with regular speakers too??

KB, Kimber, VdH, EA, etc.. will run you out of house and home. Sam even knows someone who used Tara labs in his 118NE. :-)

The JBL kit or Monster Interlink Jr or Streetwires etc. will do fine. What you need is a clean signal from from the HU to the amps.

The Alpine 545 is 300W rms at 12 V. That isn't extraordinarily higher than the 275 which is about 270W rms at 12V. Which is why your money is better spent on a cheaper 4-ch from Alpine. But if you are hell bent on spending the moolah on the 545 ($650, gosh), please go ahead.

For the system in concern, I think your total budget for cabling should be about 7000.

Breakup

1. 3 x RCA cables @ 1000 each: Rs. 3000
2. Power wiring kit incl fusing & dist block: Rs. 2000
3. Approx 15-20m speaker cabling @100/m: Rs. 2000

Don't waste money buying ridiculously expensive brands like Kimber. Let it be proportionate to the amount you're spending on your other gear.

I agree 200% with B&T.
Both Monster Jr. and Streewires are available for about Rs. 1200 per pair. It should suffice.

Kimber and co are a sheer waste in the car.
The prices B&T has given are spot on.
