JL Indeed costs a bit here, and maybe SSPL shud try extending warranty to 2 years on using their wires and a certified install, anyways they are working on giving it to only good installers directly.
Their stuff sounds really neat, have heard couple of well tuned complete JL setups and they rock, my personal favorite is the W3 sub and 500/1 amp among them. Even the VR series components are pretty good.
I feel the 13W7 is overrated and very heavily overpriced in India.
I might be wrong ............. anyone ?

The only brand I know of and available in India which I can compare in speaker performance to JL is ID, but am yet to hear a full setup by them. Since we have heard so much I assume it will live up to my expectations. Time will tell

JL Amps ?? No, a 500/1 mono is at an MRP of Rs 45,000, and there are many amps below that.
I think the start is more like Rs 25,000

Cheapest JL amps in India are the e1200 and the e2150 for about 17000.

JL Audio has a 3-way component system, XR653-CSi, which is available for approximately 360USD on the net. Is it good? If available in India, what's the price?

DUB is the car audio brand for DUB who also sell alloys, body mods, magazine etc. It's a car lifestyle product.
DUB Audio is nothing but Audiobahn, as Audiobahn manufactures the stuff for DUB. Quite a lot of their products are common with slightly different looks but the same theme, LOTS OF CHROME!

About the comparison and performance, B&T will elaborate.
