I Would like to thank everyone who kept chipping in with all the info via PM.

Special thanks to 'Sam Kapasi' who called up the MA Car Studio guys & made sure everything happened smoothly. Thanks Samirji, i owe you one

Digicam Pics to follow in a Day or 2. As of now, poor quality cell-cam pics (TEASER?)


Taking her out for a spin now along with a Lil Jon CD. Its fun disturbing the neighbours sometimes

Also, the only man yet (I think) on TBHP that has the Power Series Subwoofers. Mate those are heavy beasts of burden and I hope you got a good box for those.

Used to have 2x 10" JBL Power series dual-mag subs in my car some 8 years ago. They were nice. Gamer, you have a nice system, am sure it hits HARD! I guess you know by now, you're gonna be needing more damping.

Congrats Dude, Enjoy your setup !

Talking about powerful subs by JBL I saw Anwar Install 2 JBL W12GTi subs in different swifts in the last one month, the sub is a monster and some thunderous SPL coming out of Ported Fiberglass enclosures,



Now I have couple of confusions about this product,

This sub is a Dual 6 Ohms sub with a output of 700 RMS.
The sub both times has been paired with a 1201.1 mono amp and has been wired in parallel. The result is an Impedance of 3 Ohms
Now the amp churns out over 1100 RMS. Ideally any 700 RMS sub is supposed to blow with so much power but this one does not.

So How ?? Also the amp is 2 Ohm Stable but sub is at 3 Ohms wired in parallel so what is taking a beating ? I think the sub.

So what amp is Ideal for this sub ?? If not a 1201.1

I know 3 of these subs can be wired in parallel-parallel to combine with a JBL BPX2200.1 amp which is 1 Ohm stable.
The A3000GTi is also an option but then is it too much juice for 3 of these subs ?

thanks moralfibre, amit & revtech
@ mclaren - the entire mrp came upto 1.5lacs but i did get discounts which i will post in a full list later
@ hydra - yea bro, been saving for a few months now & was hoping i could do it all in one go
@ esteem_lover - 17k for the HU
@ ishan - Mods, please remove the 'no1' from my nick because it reminds him of his favorite bollywood hero
@ Sam - i guess so. Even Asif was telling me that it was the 1st time they installed the power series subs in a non-demo car
@ gunbir - hell yea bro. & imagine, i even have a spoiler to back all that vibration!!
@ Mugen - pics coming up soon..
@ blueraven - i was having a similar issue. with the 1220Es rated at 400rms each, it was coming to 800rms. Sam adviced me to go for the 1201.1 over the 601.1s & set the gains properly

Hello children -

Tu mera tu mera tu mera gamer no. 1

Yes, I advised you to go for the 1100.1, because of the construction and sheer power of the amplifier. You did and you have (internationally) a world class sub-amp combo.
I did advise the more powerful amplifier, simply because when you use a subwoofer (ANY), more power is better bass quality.

Also you were using Power series (High excursion) woofers, in sealed boxes. Though a sealed box delivers faster and accurate bass, the sensitivity of the woofer is greatly lowered (as opposed to a ported enclosure).
Hence it seemed the the 601 would not deliver up to your expectations.

@blueraven: The GTi series woofers are competetion based car amplifiers. They are entirely based on the Dual Differential Concept, carried forward from the JBL bass transducers used for PA and theatre applications.
Even the amplifiers (from the 2200.1 upwards) are designed by the Pro Engineers, electronics by Crown and Speaker tech by JBL pro.

The result is a driver (GTi) that is almost impossible to blow under correctly installed circumstances. I hope that answers your question about the use of the woofer.

A 700W rms woofer will run beautifully on a 1200W amplifer, if the crossover settings are correct and the power supply is strong enough.

A 2200 does run 3 woofers @ 1 ohm. I know which installation you are referring to lol.

The GTi series amplifiers are well, monsters and totally impractical. A3000GTi (JBL does have this in stock in India) is priced at a little under 3 lac rupees and I do not think most cars here, have a power supply to run it. The 6000 toh is a complete "Statement - because we CAN" sort of amplifier. ANyways at 5.5 lacs, who the hell is gonna buy it?

Anyday 1201.1 is way better amp for the two JBL Power Subs than 601.1, the extra power is worth every penny.
