My 2 cents, if you have the HU, then simply install a good component set in from and good coaxial in the rear.

JBL - GTO 608C - 4.5K in grey
JBL - GTO647 Ltd. - 4.5k in grey
Kicker wiring - around Rs.1000.

This would give you a very decent setup for now and would leave lot of scope for future upgradation. I am using the same speakers, and do not feel the need for amplification for sub.

WOW super bass amp from where you bought this and for how much will say stay away from it and the JBL RCA looks fake to me.

Its better to go with sub+enclosure then going with a tube hear yourself and decide.

Not yet purchased.

powerbass and cable was at a local dealer.
the cable had nice finish, didn't appeared to be Fake.

For ampli, it was quoted Rs.5300/- any tips to check if its real or fake.

Which sub to consider if going for own sub in a box.

Its not a fake amp just its a non branded amplifier 5300/= is quite high for this get a pioneer or jbl mono or you can buy a decent 4 channel amp and simply bridge 2 channels.

About the cable JBL don't have any RCA cable they only have one wiring kit which cost 3k.

this is not a fake amplifier.
AFAIK, powerbass makes some honest products. just not too well known in India. But good stuff that sounds decent.
the wiring kit is definitely a fake.
BUT, this amp is not enough to make a bass tube BOOM. it's decent power and you can power your other pair of speakers with it.. for the sub, try a more powerful amp. powerbass only, if you want

Look for jbl or blaupunkt amps they don't have any fakes in market, you will get both with bill and warranty.

AFAIK there is no online web store (Indian) which sells wiring kit search in local market.

Thanks Karan Ji, I visited blaupunkt today, the woofer and amp was there but wiring was not worth buying,
I ended up buying front speakers for time being.

I've postphoned my sub-woofer idea till my next visit to Delhi which will happen a few months later.

Thanks all and especially Karan ji, Frank Ji and DerAlte.

Enjoy, @ghpk. Why was the wiring not worth buying? Which speakers did you buy for the front?

Congrats on the buy do let us know which blau speakers you bought.
Deralte i think he is not able to find any good cables in Allahabad may be the cables he found were of not good quality.

At this level, cables should not be a big worry. Power cables, as has been discussed many times here, can be good Indian brands which are bound to be available in Allahabad. RCA cables that the Blau dealer has would be competent, not extraordinary - unless the dealer is selling fakes on the sly. But then he can always have the RCA cables shipped to him from Delhi or Mumbai.
