Hope above words clear the doubt.
Quite Strange. Which only means that price of GTO937 has dropped more than 30% in less than a year. I got mine for 4.8K with B&W

No the price is very much 4950/- . Competition leads to discounts but rarely that high.

djay can you please let us know what dealer offered you that price officially? Thanks.

Hi Sam,
Initially the dealer quoted 3.6K for GTO937. I made him to make it 3.2K
Probably he might have adjusted profit in other things as i bought complete system for 26K which includes

Blau London MP 37 HU
Front & rear JBL speakers
Blaupunkt MKII 4 channel 800W AMP
Pioneer 800W Sub
Cables, fitment and sub box

somebody lost a container of JBL speakers, methinks. Why does it always happen to me ? Hell, I could have bought a small amp with the money saved.

btw, Thanks a ton for the Stickers SAM.

leeking you can safely opt for JBL CS60.4 with B&W or JBL 75.4 in grey, both would be safely in your budget and with the balance, you can treat me with a bottle of wine the next time you are in Delhi!!

No they are not fake. COme on guys don't tell me you have not understood the trick.

Dealers can give discounts on stuff, on certain products they have the margin to do so, due to various slabs etc.
GTO937 is a standard in 6X9 speakers. Walk into any car audio market in India (any village) and you will find a pair of GTO937 there.

What is the best way to entice a client? Offer him the cheapest price on the most widely visible and recognisable product. Simple business. Money can be made on everything else. There is nothing wrong with this policy.

The client is not being cheated, he is being enticed.

How many of you have bought a 1 litre bottle of pepsi for 50 rupees from the shop close to your house? Well today I bought one from Food Bazaar for 50 rupees and I got one more free with it. Thats 25 rupees!

Effectively have you guys all been cheated? No. When I went to food bazaar, I spent 1000 rupees. Not 50. Think.

Circa 1981:
I walk into a grocery store and see a 2 liter bottle of coke for $0.99. Figuring I dont need 2 liters I look for the 1 liter bottle. It is priced at $1.29!! Marketing 101!

In my friends case, he got a deal as follows -
Pioneer 7950 HU -9000 odd
GTO 937 - 3100
CS1265 - 2100

SO I don't know where the dealer made money ?? This is a grey market guy, so no B&W for anything.

In fact, he challenged my friend to go to any JBL dealer and ask them whether the speakers are fake and that he will refund the money if the speakers were told to be fake.

I always thought JBL automatically comes with B&W and no grey stuff around. So grey has seeped into JBL products too?
