Does this mean you only recommend grey amplifiers LBM?

Hmm NO...I would always say go with B/W but if the product is available in cheap and at a very good price then it is worth the risk.

Thanks every one for helping me decide on the ICE. I am happy with the setup.
I would like to know the good settings for the amp, please help on it.
I listen to Indian Film music, country songs (Kenny rogers, John Denver, Alison kraus etc) and pop. I am not a big fan of Rock and Metal. I dont like the bass to shack my car. Your inputs are much appreciated.
audio GURUs please help me to tune the amp properly.

F-7, East Of Kailash

The shop is located on the main road which leads to Nehru Place from LSR. After crossing the Kailash Colony red light it is on the left, the one with big Bridgestone hoarding after Eurolite store.

There is nothing that is good or bad - to each his own - but things can always be better!

Your choice is good, but...

The Infinity 6022 is a co-ax. It is better that you put Infinity 6020 components in the front, or else JBL GTO607.

It is better that you power the fronts by the amp, and not the rears, if you drive yourself. That is in case you are not budgeting a 4-ch amp like JBL 60.4. It is better to stretch at least that much and power all the 4 speakers with a 4-ch amp - that way you get good sound no matter whether you are in the driver's seat or the back seat.

I am not sure of the JBL T595 ovals, though. The GTO 937 is more powerful and popular - costs 4950 or less. For budget constraints, the CS3196 from JBL is also VFM.

The range of available choices is wide, and you must actually listen to a few brands and models to decide which gives you the best price/performance.

@netpark: we need to know what genres of music do you usually listen to.

Dude, the T595 Limited are insane speakers. they've got seperate inputs for the woofer cone and tweeters. They're typical Oldschool headbanging sotra speakers. SPL oriented maddass speakers!

The 937s are rated at 100watts RMS whereas the T595s are rated at 150watts RMS.

@shrivz, you are right - genres of music question is the first relevant question. If it is SPL that @netpark is looking for, then maybe he should be getting a suitable amp for that with the T595's.

Oldschool headbanging, eh? I have put my head and ears to rather traditional uses all these years, so difficult to visualize!

BTW, what is "sotra"?

Try putting components in front brother. The two recommended options have been mentioned above already.

It's better if you plonk money for a 4 channel amp. Gives more upgrading options in future.

However, if current budget permits 2 channel amp only, then PLEASE power the front components and NOT the rear co-axials through your amp.
