U can also have a look at JBL's SQ cousin i.e. Infinty.

And i would STRONGLY ADVISE u to not to look beyond alpine HU and amplifier.
1. 9847 for 11K with B&W?
2. ID sub for 8K with box?
3. Infinity is definitely more refined than JBL. JBL is a rocker's speaker, Infinity can rock too but has finesse as well. In fact I have heard some Infinity models that can rock with the best of them like the SM150. If you are considering Infinity I would also consider Alpine's Type R.

Sam, does Infinity sell EMIT/EMIM based driver in India. I have not come across any.

Navin,
I havent heard Infinity as yet. will do that before I finalize the install.

since I have no idea about amps, can anyone suggest me a good 4 channel amp(make and model number) in the range of 10K-15K?

In the meanwhile I shall search through this forum for amps.

Any EMIT componets? Please! Please! :-) Actually the EMIMs sound even more wonderful. Maybe it is becuase the ear is so sensitive in the midrange.

you sound so excited.

Sorry, No EMIM and EMIT only on the 6X9. I guess not too many Navin's around to appreciate EMIT components.

Visit othe car audio forums and you will find a large number of Alpine-Infinity systems. JBL has a dynamic immediacy to their sound. Every studio I have worked in (in NYC) had a pair of JBL/UREI monitors never mind if their main room was equipped with other brands.

When I was younger I had a pair of JBL 18" pro woofers mated to JBL 8" midbass and JBL Horn mid and tweeter. All powered by 4 200W/ch stereo Adcom amps (GFA 555). That system could rock. I mean it could part your hair. Everything including Jazz and Classical Orchestra sounded so alive.

Then as I grew older the JBLs were replaced by Dynaudio, Focal, Vifa, Morel and ScanSpeak. It is not that these products sound better than JBL it is just that they sound a bit more refined. The system does not aound as alive anymore but it is able to resolve a bit more.

Vivek this side east of the Heil AMTs these devices produce great sound but require complex XOs. So far I have stayed away from AMTs and EMIT and EMIMs for this reason. Some years back I tried to build a 36" high x 12" wide wide range electrostatic panel using NdFeB magnets and mylar etched with copper. It was a disaster. The sound was coloured but was dynamic. I finally dumped them in favour of a pair of Maggie SMGa mounted on a 12" Velodyne.

Everyone once in a while I get the urge to develop a electrostatic panel. Maybe B&T with his PI connections can help.

My dream...TL 8" or 10" woofer mated to SEMIM (large EMIM) at 200-250Hz mated to EMIT at 4000-5000Hz in car. The SEMIM/EMIT panel can double as the rear deck (sutiably protected).

Older Infinities used to have EMIT tweeters and midranges. I still remember one of my friend, used have tall infinity speakers, dont remember the model with 2 X 12" Bass Drivers, Dome Midrange and EMIT Tweeters front and back. He later on sold them and bought Tannoy Definition D900 with Supetweeter.

Need another info from Sam or other BHPians... What is the current cost of JBL GTO506Ce and GTO936e.

Did it get reduced by any chance ?

Cheers,
Anand.
