Yes the GTO301.1 has a better damping factor and much better power.

Here is the link JBL Car Audio | CS 300.1 | FXAudio

I have installed the same in my car last evening, the sound quality is amazing to say the least. Will come up with pictures soon.

This is not the first time I've been asked this question.

All i have to say is that the marketing philosophies of the CS annd GTO series and handled by different people. By default, the GTO series offers A grade engineering and materials.
CS is offered as more VFM, often relying heavily on older GTO technology. Even though the CS300.1 and GTO301.1 are similarly specced (notice how similar their names are too), the GTO 301.1 is a superior amplifier in terms of audio quality and current delivery and therefore costs a little more.

That said, the CS300.1 is a GTO amplifier at heart and there are few monoblocks less than 10K that can pack the punch it does.

Hope this helps.

Update

I got my sub/amp upgrade done last weekend. I have installed a monoblock ( JBL CS300.1) and ( JBL CS1204B) and have used a wiring kit from scosch. The total came up to 18.5K after discounts ( quoted 21K) which i think was a pretty good deal as tbhp name is pretty popular with this installer ( Sprocket, Hyderabad). I even got a Ipod wire to the HU interface thrown in as a compliment

However, i am overall happy with the huge change in the quality of sound ( pls read bass) but, a new problem has cropped up. My rear number plate is rattling like mad and playing a huge spoilsport. I tried double side tapes but, it worked for a day and the rattle is back. Somebody was suggesting to remove the number plate and use a sticker for the same

Please suggest what to do to make this rattling sound vamoos???

I will post the pics of the installation sometime during this week, as its busy time @office.

You need to invest in some DAMPING

Depending on your budget you can choose from Wurth, Dynamat (extreme), FoNoMat and the latest rage causing excitement here in the ICE forum - American Dynamics
