Will be going to the dealer in the next couple of hours to see the Focals. My biggest fear right now is whether they are genuine or not. since i have some recognition points for fake and original, will see.
The guy was also offering me JL Audio components (XT650-Csi). It's a discontinued model but the price was same as focals.
Will share the prices after the install.

@abhibh- Can you pleas share your experience of Nakamichi compo and JL Audio compo w.r.t. to rainbow's?

I didn't liked Nakamichi much. I have heard 2 different models and both of them on a good HU (8650 and Alpine 9830) and Amps. They are pretty harsh and bright.

JL were pretty nice. I don't remember the model number but they were pretty smooth sounding.

Though none of them can compete with the Bass level of the Rainbow SAX. Even though i am just powering the Rainbows with 50W they kick pretty hard. Even Infinity Kappa compos powered through Infinity Amp lacked the midbass level of Rainbows. Though i liked Kappa alot. They are all in one in different league than Reference series which i heard last year.

Ankit it was nice meeting you. I am glad you liked the Components. Try to contact D1, Morten, maverick55 and audition their cars. I will let you know as soon as i get in contact with the JL guy.

Also don't buy the AMP as of now. First decide on the components. There will never be a shortage of JBL stuff specially the 1004.

P.S. You will have hard time deciding between Rainbows, Hertz and ID. Though I have auditioned all and Rainbow kicks harder than both of them.

Hey guys , please help me with amplifier , very confused regarding a 4 channel amplifier . Budget is tight , max to max 11k . Will be powering my Blau vpc 172 and a new set of components ( rainbows or Hertz undecided ) .

And i need help for Subs too ... I have Hifonics Brutus 1208 D . I dont want very loud sub , budget is short and tight around 6-8 k .

Power ratings for Brutus is 450W x 1 Channel at 4 ohms - 900W x 1 Channel at 2 ohms - 1200W x 1 Channel at 1 ohm

Thinking of powering a sub at 2 ohms .... 1 1000rms sub will do great job ( a guess ;D )

Please and do tell me gud installers in Delhi ( new to forums so plz kindly help ) , will be coming delhi for the installation and components n wirings .

Ankit increase your budget for sub. The type of music you listen to have very fast and overlapping bass. There are only 2 subs which i found to be good for playing psy trance etc.

1. JL Audio
2. iD

Both wont fit your budget.

Regarding installers contact Driven or GYRO.
