No No NO!! a 6x9 doesnt ACT like a sub. It is not an actor. it is a speaker that has near equivalent cone surface area of a 8" speaker. Thats about it. A 6x9 speaker and an 8" sub have different design objectives and different applications.

Sony do make good amps like the sd series or so.

Sony had 2 amps below 5k in India with B&W. So we suggest taht amp below 5k. 5k up you have Pios etc which are more poweful and vfm. Thats all I guess.

Well you can get a CS amp. All JBL CS series amplifiers(2ch, 4ch and mono) are below 10K brand new.

Default JBL 8' sub with enclosure

Hey guys,
Was going through this thread and I wanted to know if there are any JBL 8 inch subs in enclosure, i.e built-in at factory. If yes Samji could you please post the model no.?

If no, could you guys recommend any pre-fabricated boxes for the JBL GTO804 that gives a precise and tight bass! I am looking for this because, I might want to remove the subwoofer from the boot of my i10 rarely!

8" bass tube? I have not seen one from JBL. Try their website to see if they have one.

i'd look at a 4 ch amp from JBL, Pioneer, Kenwood etc.. and a 10" in a small sealed box. Use the amp to power the 4" (HPF 120Hz or so) and the sub (LPF at 100Hz or so).

Total cost: sub 5-6K, box 1K, wires: 2K, optional damping 3K so say 10-12K will cover this.

You got me wrong mate! I meant a small sealed box and not a bass tube!!
I believe both are two different things. Correct me if I'm wrong sir!!

Oh yeah!! Got it.

Crutchfield-Sound Ordnance Bass Bunkers

Is this worth the money?

I'd much prefer a small sealed box than a bass tube. It will help a lot witht he range between 50Hz and 100Hz but dont expect an 8" to produce good SPLs at 30-40Hz.

Navinji, I'm not looking for SPL !! Actually deep booming systems give me a headache after 10 mins of exposure, hence I prefer SQ and thought of putting in a sub just to reproduce the lows to a fair extent!!

Navin, I've got a doubt. If I drive a JBL GTO804 (200W RMS) sub with the GTO1004 amp, with rear channel bridged, i.e., 300W RMS fed into to the sub, will either of them go KA-BOOM ?
