I've told you what I will get with this amount of money. So, You know what I like.
Regarding JBL and Hertz, both are in different categories and cater to people with different tastes. Hertz is a bit expensive than JBL too.

What I pointed out earlier in my post is what I will repeat again. If you're looking for a full JBL setup with earlier mentioned config, then 50k is sufficient. If you insist on blowing 1L, then it's better to get more higher end stuf!!

Mega...
I would strongly advise that you hear stuff before you buy.....Its quite possible that you might not actaully like sound from very high end stuff... as SQ goes on a different level...
Its more important YOU like what you buy..not what others like....

I think Mega was asking for advice between on the options he posted. I too have brand preferences but you dont see me pushing them do you?

Mega, given the ammount of money you are going to spend it might pay to do some homework both regarding prices as well as component choices. This homework means a LOT of LISTENING to the components (NOT TO you dealer, friend, or significant other).

between the options above i'd take option 3, drop the capacitor add some damping and better power / RCA cables.

However if you let on where you are buying this from (from a dealer or website etc.. ) we can see if there are better package options. Please bear in mind that all waranties on this equipment are void in India.

If I had 80K-1L to spend on a system I'd allocate 10K for damping, 10K for RCA and power cables, 15-20K ($3-400) for the HU, 20-25K ($4-500) for the amps and 30-35K ($6-700) for the speakers.

just an example and since you have a preference for JBL...
HU: Pio 7800, Alpine 9857, Clarion 865, Kenwood X990
Amps: JBL 755.6 or a combination of 75.4 and 601.1
Speakers: Infinity Kappa 60.7 and Infinity 9613i
Sub: Infinity Perfect 10.1 x 2 or JBL P1024 x 2 in a custom box made here. (it is easier to carry woofers than a whole box).

Option: If you can afford the JBL 1200.1 or similar amp then another sub option is a RF Power Stage 1 15" sub. I'm told it is a bit power hungry though hence the larger amp needed.

get the damping and cables locally for 2 reasons.

a) your installer will bless you and earn a little commision
b) your installer cant balme your wiring

The 6 ch. amp will make for a simpler install the combination of 2 amps will give you more power.

Infinity is owned by Harmon Intl. The same company also own Harmon Kardon and JBL.

Yet I would listen to other brands before ordering stuff. JBL maks nice stuff and so do others.

@Navin,
Thanks a ton on your view, I'm buying everything from the JBL dealer in bangalore, He also deals with Infinity. I Love the infinity speakers cause of the manufacturing quality, Yep I can add the Flight and Hotel cost to my ICE . I bought my Home Theater System with full bill and warranty Paid lil over 9% extra from grey market. I don't want to take risk by just saving another 9-10K.

I'm thinking of Buying 2 Amps, 1-MonoBlock and another 4 channel, I dropped the idea of having 2 Subs Instead I'll just have 1 12" Sub and one Monoblock class "D" Amp, Looking at Alpine 4 Channel Class "D" Amp as JBL 75.4 is class "AB", let me see if I can get hold of one, it's lil expensive though ($599). Option 3 is what I was inclined from the begining but I'm not too happy with JBL 937's, Now that I've an Option "Infinity" Thank you.
Thanks,
../Mega
TBHP Rocks!!
