Just a small correction here; Connection Audison Interconnects start from Rs 900 for the FT2 500 (which compares with Interlink Jr).

There is no BEST in audio. I could put in front of you 3 different amps of Rs 2 lakh each... Yet, you may only like one of them. I may like the other while Navinji might like the third. So neither of those brands is "the BEST". It depends on whats best for you really...

Re Alpine. I have said this before and I will say it again. The 301 mono you're running is a good amp. Alpine used to make great amps back then. If I were you I wouldnt change to the new ones (605/1005). It would be a degrade rather than an upgrade. If you really want an upgrade look out for the ealier Alpine MRD-M1001. Now thats an amp that can kick ***. Last of the great Alpines...

yes.. i would toally agree with what gunbir baba just said.. the alpine 1005 would be a downgrade compared to the Alpine MRD-m1001. Proud owner of the 1001 myself. I died hunting for one and i wont let this one go till it pops.
Powers my 2 IDQ 12 inchers brilliantly. The MRD-M1001 i can vouch for.Definately Kick***
P.s .. if i had found sir's gunbir and Jb and Team-Bhp when i did my install.. i probably would have either a Tru-tech or Audison powering the IDQ subs.. Not that im at all unhappy with the alpine either. Love that Amp too.
Just one more point though, The Mrd-M1001 was selling at 50-55 K when it was available hence that also puts it in a similar price range to the mid range Audisons and Tru Tech amps.The high end amps from these companies run into the Lakhs of ruppes for each amp.
hope this helped
Boom
