auditioned some subs: pioneer , polk momo , blaupunkt. Surprised to see that pioneer dint sound but it was shaking like anything,i have no idea why, Polkmomos were the best out of these (here i am talking about entry level subs) Blaupunkt was good but little boomy fr my taste. so i am going fr polks but still want to give a try on pioneer.. just to check.

Default Bass tube Upgrade

I have decided to upgrade my existing Subwoofer setup. Please suggest, if this combination would be good?

Mono Amp: JBL CS300.1 (10K)
Woofer : JBL 12" Basstube (6.5K)

What are the suggestions of using the above monoblock with say a JBL 60.2 to drive just the basstube? which of these two combinations would be good?


Existing other components are:

HU: Pio 6850
Front : Blaunpaunkt Comps
Rear: JBL GTO937
Tweeters: TS20 ( Planning to remove them for good)
Amp: Sony 554 ( 4-channel amp) driving the rear speakers and front components currently.
Pio 8inch subwoofer ( dont even know the model)---------going to replace this with the basstube

Car in question is Accent Viva CRDI. Thanks for your inputs in advance

Btw, what is the difference between CS300.1 and GTO300.1? GTO is about 13K and my installer is telling me it is not selling much and CS300.1 is selling good thats why suggesting you this monoamp. I dont want to be taken for a ride if CS300.1 is not selling and he wants to clear it on me...you know what i mean..vice-versa

I think the basstube doesn't need thaaaat much power to get it to perform well. It can get thick & loud with just a reasonable amount of power. IMHO a CS300.1 should do a great job, and a CS60.2 should do a good enough job.

Sam would know better so we'll wait for his comments.

If the difference is not much, then i would like to stick to JBL60.2 just to drive the sub. it would definetly save me a lot of money.

Installer was suggesting to go for CS300.1 because its a subamp and can be used for any other sub if i decide to upgrade to bigger subs in future, that is definetly a plus point.

Also, any rough indicative pricing of the following from users or people who know would be great

JBL CS300.1
JBL60.2
JBL12" Basstube ( I think this is 1200 watts)

I got a quote for 10K for cs300.1 and 6.5 for basstube, 1k for wiring kit, rounded off to total 16.5K, is this reasonable??

@mobike008,

CS60.2 = 6K max
CS300.1 = 10K max
GTO301.1 = about 12.5 K

CS1204T (12" bass tube) = 6.5K max.

Now I'm not 100% certain, but I think that except for getting a 1K discount/waiver on the wiring kit, you're paying the max price for the 300.1 and the tube. I don't think he's fooling you -- I just don't think he is giving you a discount on the amp and tube (if he is so claiming). But then I guess he isn't charging you for installation? If he isn't, that's about 300/- to 500/- saving.

And as your installer said, if you do plan on upgrading to a better sub in future, the 60.2 won't do. But the 300.1 would do good duty. For that reason alone I'd personally suggest the CS300.1.

I'm here.

While the 60.2 will drive the ported, more sensitive bass tube, personally I'd believe that the 300.1 will really rock the establishment.
No you wont have much trouble from the 60.2 and may actualy totally enjoy the combo, the more powerful amplifier will give you some major booms.

JBL wiring kits: Please understand, again, that JBL is not a cabling company. We had (internationally) created some wiring kits, manufactured for us by a rather large cabling company. These are few and far between and most of the time, the few hundred pieces that are alloted to india get snapped up as soon as they are in. I have a good reaon to believe that the wiring kit is fake.

Thanks Hydrashok and Sam, yes, 16.5K includes wiring, plank for installing the amp on the rear side of the seats from inside the boot and installation charges for CS300.1 and 12" Basstube. Is this price ok?

I am now much more clear, sam, i'd like to what would be the difference of GTO300.1 and CS300.1? I hope i am not making any mistakes by choosing CS300.1?

Thanks again folks !

Also, any tuning tips for CS300.1? What grains to set-it it up? Any other pointers would also help. I want to extract the best boom out of this combo with losing on SQ. I listen to mostly 70'-80's rock for e.g PF, Led Zepp, Metallica, GNR, Dire Straits, Black Sabbath,Whitesnake etc and a little bit of hip-hop ( Dre, snoop dogg etc).
so please suggest the tuning parameters based on above

Start with gains at 50-70% and no EQ at all. Then tune by ear. I have reason to believe that human ears are the best callibration/tuning tools there are, sadly we dont trust them enough.
