Question VFM Monoblocs

Gurujis,
My next upgrade would be a mono amp and Im looking for a decent VFM model.
A couple I have in mind are JBL CS 300.1 and the pioneer 7200M.
Suggestions and recommendations please.

The kenwood 9103D is the best amp in this price range. IIRC someone mentioned he bought it for 12000 from Driven. You can try looking for it in Chennai. It does 900watts @2ohm

CS series not worth, try to add few more grands and get GTO series. Bought it last saturday will post the perfomance after hetting it done in my Car.
I think Sony makes the cheapest Monos.

I currently have a JBL GT4-12.
Plan to change it if it doesn't suffice.

Then GTO 301.1 or newer GTO series will be the best bet.

Pardon my ignorance, but the specs tell me the gto 301 is less powerful than the cs 300.
Is there something that I ain't reading?

Nitrous in the ICE section.. cheers:

You dont need a mono to drive a SVC sub. If you are going to upgrade your sub to something else, please finalize that first and get a mono based on that.

Thanks, sri ajay gyaan guruji.
Im currently driving the GT4-12 by bridging 2 channels from the Pioneer 6000F amp(rated 50x4). So, there is no "punch"!

Get something like this

PANASONIC CY-PA2003U <br>2-Channel 1200W AMPLIFIER

or this

ROCKFORD FOSGATE P5002 <br>2-Channel 500W PUNCH Series AMPLIFIER

for more punches and kicks than a Jackie Chan movie.

Thank U,ajay and kiran for suggesting the models.
Can U educate me on why a SVC doesn't need a mono while a DVC shouldn't run from a bridged 2 channel?
