Stay away from this ultimate it will decimate your car. Go for something better.

+1 but the sony would not be able to exploit the sub . I think the Sub is 350W RMS.

Thanks for all advice. Now the thumb rule for choosing a SUB for my AMP is.
1. 200 RMS
2. 1000 Watts
3. 4 Ohms
4. SVC
Thanks...

Thanks

Pioneer TS-W301R
Nominal Power: 150W
Max Music Power: 800W
Nominal Impedance: 4 ohm

Kenwood KFC-W1012
Peak Power 800W
Rated Power 200W

Thanks.

Hi, I'm looking forward to upgrade my ICE. The current setup is-

1. Blaupunkt HU
2. Sony xplode 4 channel amp
3. Sony comps
4. Blaupunkt bass tube GT 12S

The options available to me are-
1. Upgrade the comps to something better, retain the sony amp to drive the speakers and add a monobloc to drive the woofer
2. Chuck the sony amp and get a good 4 channel amp. Add another sub. Use 2 channels to drive the front speakers and 2 channels to power the 2 subs.
3. Replace the existing comps, amp and bass tube with a better 4 channel amp, comps and 2 subs.

The reason for upgrade? I am not happy with the way it sounds. Not enough punch or clarity.

I have a budget of 20,000 Rs. for the upgrade. If required I could stretch it by a few thousand bucks. What would you guys suggest I do? Can you recommend the best options available to me keeping in mind my existing setup and my budget of 20,000 bucks? I am looking for an SPL setup. Please provide the costs for individual items.

First, sell the stuff and see how much you can rake in.
Then go for front compos,amp,sub in that order.

I don't want to sell anything, whatever I replace will go into a friend's car which does not have any ICE yet. So I want to retain what I can/should and then upgrade the rest.

Ok, so GZ MK2 it is. Which comps and amp out of the ones you have suggested would you recommend for an SPL setup?

disclaimer:
my advise is based on my limited listening experience. I suggest you audition everything before buying.
IF i were you i would choose GZ iridium/ morel tempo series /JBL gto 608 components. (however since morels may not be available that easily your choice may be between GZ and JBL, you cant go wrong with either)
for the amp i would go for the JBL GT5-A604. please check pricing at 2-3 dealers, some discount on MRP is possible.
sub i would suggest fitting in a sealed enclosure.
