Sorry to bother you guys again. Was waiting for the new GT5 range in Calcutta. But, my ICE money is running out and I need to get the install done today.

From the inputs given above, I have two options.
1. Get a mono block 300.1/equivalent or 7300. And a DVC sub.
2. A 2channel amp and a SVC sub (GTO 1204BR/equivalent).

Queries: Is a DVC sub available from JBL? What other options do I have from Kicker/Pio? (Other brands are not available in my range)

If I get a SVC (GTO 1204BR), what kind of amplification should I look at? Please suggest some models from JBL/Pio/Kicker.

shuv, why a DVC in particular? Why not a good monoblock like 301.1 and a sub in a sealed enclosure? 1204BR would not produce the tight bass of a sealed enclosure IMO.

DVC so that I could drive it off a Mono block. Gurus are suggesting not to get a mono block for a SVC. Does JBL have a sealed enclosure setup?

I think B&T or Navin will clarify that, since they're the gurus.

JBL has a sub with sealed enclosure - CS1204B which comes with GT4-12. I am using the same with a monoblock 300.1 and it works wonders for me.

Ahem, loveguru? You certainly dialled the right number, baby!

Monos that are rated for max output at 2 ohms or 1 ohm are not putting out full rated power at 4 ohms (exception of some monos like the Alpines/ JLs etc). So you're buying an amp and paying the price for more power while extracting lesser from it. Better to go for a 2 channel amp (or use two channels of a 4-channel amp) in bridged mode to get the required power and optimize the spend on the amp. No?

Woofer lagaya toh mono lagana hi padega?

...Naah!

Okay then! Should I go for a 2 channel amp or THE 75.4 and a sealed box sub? Could add another sub at a later stage, budget permitting!

A SVC can also be run of a monoblock.

This sounds great to me. I have a DVC sub & am thinking of getting an amp for it. The Pioneer PRS-4100F is a 4-channel amp. When bridged, it puts out 300W x 2. It is available locally & doesn't cost the earth.
Now here's the catch. The AZ Audiocomp binding cup on the sub box has just 2 connectors on it. Is there any way of fitting another 2 connectors on it?
My sincere thanks in advance for your suggestions.

The 4ch amp will not drive a 2 ohm load off its bridged output.
