Like Navin said, get the GTO301.1 or the 600.1 to drive the 2 boxed subs.

But if we're strictly choosing between the 944 and the 75.4, the 75.4 is a better option (if the price is similar)

Just wanted to mention speaker cable.
Just heard some Belden 12 gauge cable in a car and i'm afraid that Navin's right again, the Belden is a storming cable for the price. On all counts (except perhaps cosmetics).
Incidentally Navin, FYI some JBL stores still have some of the hard to get twisted 12 gauge Belden speaker cable.

Hey Sam which stores in Mumbai can I find them? Also I am looking for spade connectors. And wire crimps with a plastic/rubber coating. All auto stores have these crimp clips but none have a sheild over it. I dont want to use wiring tape to cover these.



This is what I have been looking for basically. What stores have is something like the connector on the left while I am looking for the one on the right.

But I'd be grateful if you 'audio gurus' give me some links to sites which give a simple theorotical explanation to audio terms like co-axials, component, 2 & 3 way, cross over, soundstage etc.
I would like to clear some basics of mine.

Thanks
Add these to sites mentioned by navin

the cosmetics? the cable is under carpet!
What price? I think this should move to PM.

A bit late to the party, but just thought I'd pop in to congratulate Sam and Navin on their 3,000th reply and 200th page of Team-bhp's longest ever thread!

These 2 are probably responsible for enlightening 90% of members here about fine audio. They are also responsible for making members spend more than they should I guess, so..... DRINKS ARE ON THEM at the 3,000th post party!

Thanx Autophile, what is the recommended way to connect the wires that come out from the back of the head unit to the male socket. I dont want to directly connect these wires using a tape. Some interconnect suggestion?

Hey McClaren thanks for the offer.... Still a bit confused as to what to do with my setup. Thinking over the option Navin baba suggested as it would mean a minimal expen$e. Also not sure if my dad would be too happy about sacrificing boot space for a sub enclosure. Whats going on with the audison wiring, how much is it costing you for the entire setup ?

One more thing is I wanted to rip out the existing setup (wires, amp) and do a clean install also secure my amps a little better.

BTW has anyone heard of Xenox or Xenos components ? I met a guy yesterday who is marketing this brand, said its under the PRICOL flagship. They have a 4" compo(mid/hi/crossover) which would be good for santro users... Approx price was 4.5k I think.

Navin baba! that is a new one. Sam! Sam! did you see this.

Pricol does not specialise in Speakers. I would stick to companies that atleast stick specialise in audio.

My installer used these,not sure what these r called [generic pole connectors??].I did ask JB abt these and he told me to go ahead with these connectors.
cost is around 20 rs per piece.

u have two put both wires [which u want to connect] into this and fold it as in 1st pic.[blue and red connectors]
