Thanks Sam even i was more inclined towards buying a sealed subwoofer rather then compromising in quality just to save space.

Well you could buy a JBL sub and insist that the installer stick to the specified size of sealed box. OR you could buy a CS1204B, instead of the GTO1204BR.

Seems like your really going all out and pampering yourself now that the VDi is here.
Misrimal replaced speakers eh ??

For tight, dry and precise Bass a sealed box is what you want. The CS1204B is nothing but the beloved GT4-12" in a prefab sealed box.

The GTO1204 is the GTO 12" sub in a prefab Bass reflex enclosure, also described has tight bass by some. Would be good for you if Rock is your genre.

sealed boxes are a bit more tolerant in this regard. a sealed box that is a little to big or small wont make such a huge difference to tuning as a ported box will. given that many manufacturers drivers do not always meet published specs a sealed box is always preferable unless one has access to MLSSA or LMS or hardware/software like that.

Looks like DerAlte has covered everything you need to know.

All we now need to know is what improvement you want to make to your setup, and how much you want spend for the upgrade

The JBL 12" tube would be about 6K and an amp to drive just the tube (a 2-ch amp will do) would be about 5K (Blau GT2 special) with an additional 2k for power wiring and RCA cords. JBL's CS60.2 amps may still be available for about the same price (they have been discontinued to make way for the GT5 series).

If you'd like to amp the front speakers also (recommended) you can get a Blau GT4 special (about 6K) or a Pio 6700 (better, about 7K) or a (discontinued) JBL CS60.4 for about the same price. the JBL GT4 amps should be here soon, so I think it could be worth waiting for them also. As before, you'll need to add 2K to 3K for power wires and RCAs.

Where did you get the current setup installed?
hey thanks guys for the pointers.I really aprreviate these advices.

But now i am having a different kind of problem. i mean is there a need for a subwoofer (either in a sealed box or a basss tube) for a hatch back like swift.

the alpine products i have got installed are doin simply a fabulous job giving me excellent sound clarity and i must say really good thump. It sounds all the more good wen it comes off the rear windsheild.

i dont think i can stand anymore sound increment in the car .Trust me the guys sittin in the back really dont want me to give anymore boost to the existin system.

But i guess subwoofers are now a part n parcel of each n every car ,hatchback included.

Heyy Hydrashok i thnk you can give me more info on this regard. i am really lookin forward for that ....
