If a good musical sub is what required here, then nothing can beat an IDQ.
If a good fast paced and hard hitting sub is required, then JL. Or even some models of RF and MB Quartz will do apart from Kicker.
If a good, decent all round performer is needed, then Kappa perfect.
If a good VFM sub which can do almost everything good is required, then JBL GT4/GT5.

The latest entry into the musical category is Rainbow subwoofers. Yet to listen to one but heard they're just great.
Another good option is Alpine Type R. They still sound good if setup correctly.
Sorry to quote all of it, but ZAK I do not agree on what you said. Like you do not like Pioneer P80 me not like few of the sub mentioned above.

For 10k, i always just hear the JBL & GZ.

In addition to the above amps you get GZ entry level for 10.9K, JBL-GTO 504, if you are okay with not having a brand name on the amp you will get sound barrier too.

JBL GTO 1004 in grey costs around 9k and is absolute VFM for the power it puts out.

You can go for Finolex/L&T for the power and MX for rca and speaker cables. Cheap and best.

Arey yaar do one thing. When you get your system installed take your 1004e with you. Hook up 1004e and tell the dealer you wanna try the other amps and if u feel that other amps are playing good you will buy it otherwise you will buy another 1004e. Either way dealer will be happy as you are buying something from him.
