Infinity should be better than the other 2.
MB Quart as i have heard used to make good ICE Stuff earlier but not any more.

Soundstream. Better avoided.

HMM I'm surprised that no one has suggested the Kicker CVRs yet!

The CVRs are unbelievable subs for the price, they can really bump, and go low. Well I need not say much, as I'm sure everyone has heard of Kicker as a brand and what their products can do.

I had the same question as DjNik in mind.

Among the GZ 30T, JBL 1214 And the polk db124 SVC which would be the best choice?

VFM money depends upon various factors:
1. Your budget
2. What you expect from the product

BMW 5 series can be VFM for a person who wants to spend 45 Lacs but not for a person who has a budget of 15 lacs

Check out options you have for 14-15K in other brands, then compare and listen and decide if its VFM or not!

And also what competition got to offer.. for now the i20 is a VFM car since we have the Jazz too on Indian roads

I have a Polk 8". It does its job for a car like the Swift!

That won't be the perfect comparison. 8" Polk vs 10 or 12" (considering 14-15k) ID V3.

Even a 15" ID V3 will sound a bit different from 10" ID V3.

Oh I never meant that to be a comparison. It was a reply to the earlier GZ, JBL stuff.. but yes it now looks stupid to bring in a Polk 8" into the picture
