Sir First of all I am against Glix for which I have a lot of reasons which i would not like to specify.I am looking for a 400w RMS at 4ohms as the new Gz sub has a 2ohmX2 coils.The only amp i found was a panasonic 2 channel which provides 380@ 4ohms but nobody can source it for me in kolkata.Any other cost effective options people?
By the way if anybody wants good deals on JBL/Infinity with B&W you can contact me the Jbl distributor is a good friend of mine.

For SPL. I think GZ is the way to go.
JBL is for a bit less oriented towards SPL. Though it is pretty good VFM

now i am not an audio guru, but when i compared the prices and specifications of ground zero, illusion and JBL, this is what i found:

front compo:

illusion El 6.1 ---> 6.5" 2 way 350 W ---> 6490/-
ground zero 165T ---> 16.5 cm 2 way 150W ---> 6990/-
JBL GT5-S265C ---> 6" 2 way 240 W ---> 5990/-

rear co-ax:

illsuion EL693 ---> 6x9" 3 way 500W ---> 5250/-
ground zero 69T ---> 6x9" 3 way 180W ---> 5990/-
JBL GTO947 ---> 6x9" 3 way 400W ---> 5990/-

whichever way i look at it, i find illusion to be a much sweeter deal, specification-wise.
audio gurus may know more if there is something other than this, performance-wise.

oh sorry, i picked the prices from the website.
so if the rates have increased for both GZ and illusion, then i feel its JBL is the way to go! the JBL rates are true to my knowledge. i have its recent brochure.

gt3001 or a cs300.1
thats 300w rms. thats the only cost effective one. after that you pay around 5000 more for every 100 w increment!

Is he planning to get a new GZ30T? Are they still available?
A bridged 1004 should be pretty ok for that sub. If he really wants to push more power to it, he should probably look at 15-20K monos.
About the Panny. Sahil International handles both JBL and Panny. Why not request your JBL distributor friend to ask around?
I drive a GZ 12MK2 (350wrms) with a bridged 75.4 (284wrms). Never felt a lack of bass/thump. Although I must admit, I'm not much of a bass-head.

i have a gz 12mk2 and a 75.4 too, and my question to everyone is that if 2 channels of the 75.4 are supplying my illusion audio comps, and 2 of them bridged supplying the sub, how much power is each speaker getting?
amateur question but the manufacturers do have a confusing approach to number crunching and i really find myself lost when i try to find out this!

IIRC, each front channel - 104wrms, sub - 284wrms. Considering 4ohm speakers/sub.

aight! thanks! thought so.. but was just pondering, if one bridged 2 channels and the other 2 channels and powered a dvc sub @4 ohm then we would have 568 w RMS going to the sub??? mind numbing, and highly VFM lol!
i dunno if the 75.4 is stable at 2 ohm, but if yes, then the number would be staggeringly higher eh?

The max output (RMS ) of the 75.4 is 284 w

So its not possible to get out all the 284 w for the sub when it is being fed on 2 channels only.

I dont however know the distribution to the speaker/sub combo.

284W from 2 channels, bridged. The two rear channels are usually bridged to drive the sub.
The 2 front channels run (usually) a coax/component front speaker each (104W per channel for 4 ohm impedance speakers).
