I went with the 504. currently connected only to the rear... but as you guys are pointing out, will ask the installer to connct the fronts too to the amp.

I actually had a budget of 5k and just wanted to get the rear speakers(pioneer) changed. But ended up spending 18.5k for fronts,rear,amp,wiring
LOL Ok.
8.5K is a fine price with B&W. BTW how much is the warranty ?

And what wiring kit ?

all items i got has warranty for 1 year.

Wiring kit was a Monster Amplifier wiring kit MC-8 cost me rs2600.

But i seriously doubt the genuinity of that kit. There was no manufacturer information or distributor sticker in the blister pack.

Nitin, read this thread of cyclops http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/produc...ml#post1164207

He got the amp for 6k. You can get GZ sub+enclosure for 6k. Factor in the discount etc and you might have to strech by 1-1.5k only.

Thanks for the concern Nishant.

I am even getting the same amp here eBay India: JBL Amplifier GT5-A604 600-Watt 4-Channel Full-Range (item 260358698252 end time 14-Feb-2009 15:49:08 IST)

But I am avoding that for the reason mentioned in the same thread.

Its really a sorry state of affairs. I wandered through all the streets of gurgaon today, to find any amplifier of my choice (JBL GTO 1005/504 Kenwood 84xx). I visited at least 10 of the sellers and out of them at least 4 were HIGH PROFILE sellers.

Strangely and equally sadly, I couldn't locate even a single amplifier. All that was available was Blaupunkt MK2 and JBL GT5 604. Both not of my liking.

The sellers are so dumb they simply tell me that GTO is series is outdated. GT5 is ruling the market. People even showed me 2008 JBL catalogue and told me that none is available.

All crap yaar. I just can't take that. Man atleast, one amp. One is what I want :(

is there any distortion/indications before they blow?
