you can go for in for following brands, but audition BEFORE buying:

1. Bull Audio in sealed box app 8.5K;
2. ID ranging from 10K - 50K box seperate;
3. Kenwood price not known;
4. JBL in a ported box app 8K;
5. GZ in a ported box ranging from 9K - 1.25 lacs box seperate;
6. Sony in a ported box app 4.5K

what amp are you going to hook them on BTW?

All the above subs play punjabi music very well.. including but not limited to, chamkila, miss pooja, malkit singh, pammi bai, yamla jatt, jazzy B and so on.

the jbl gt5 1204br sounded very good to me. it's a real value for money ported box subwoofer.

sukhbir's 'gal ban gaye' sounded really sweet with this sub in my setup.

@ NOTORIOUS : There is no sub specifically designed for Punjabi music. Although I know atleast two distinguished car audio brands owned by Sikhs.

Another thing is that, no two Punjabi songs are the same. Punjabi songs are also in several different categories, I'm sure. There are songs that are performed completely live using no digital additions inserted later in the studio, then there are others like Sukhbir which is more like Punjabi Pop. And of course, you have UK Bhangra and several other Indian artists that use Punjabi lyrics with an underlying essence or foundation borrowed from hip-hop. Still others like Bally Sagoo have a completely undefinable style.

Sorry for the rant - all I meant to say is, look for an all rounder in a sub. Hear out the various options available to you with your favorite music, and it wont be very difficult to spot the right one.

Even i would agree with B&T, to and extent it's dependent on Enc and Power inputs to the sub.

@B&T,Would love to know that,Plz share.

I am sure most good subs can be tuned to suit Punjabi music. My exposure to Punjabi music is "Daler Mendi" and "Himesh Reshamaya" (I hope I spelt the names right) so I assume you would like to have a well defined lower-midbass for the "Dhol" drum. I would consider a tightly tuned ported sub (tune the sub to about 40Hz) or you could even use a bit of EQ (say 4-6db boost at 60-70Hz) to do this.

I'd say if you have a good budget , go for the Ground Zero XS - AL

But i'd say. Audition a few rides before you finalise on anything because different ears have different tastes.

Get your CD out of your HU ( It's been long since its in there )
and get going with the auditioning thing.


EDIT : Just saw you are in delhi.
Try the rides of the following

For GZ - Panky12345
For ID - Hellspawn's ride
Even I am getting GZ in a week or two.
!

Hmm, just as expected. This is typical - Punjabi lyrics, some traditional instuments, all added to a layer of hip hop.

Look for something with good excursion and power handling. People that like this kind of music, usually like it as loud and meaty as possible.
