Well essentially your 4 choices are 10" woofer, 12" woofer, 10" tube and 12" tube.

The tubes make good value for money, remember a woofer is only as good as it's enclosure, and in a M800 you will need an enclosure, so if you can make one, according to the supplied parameters of the subwoofer, it's cool, otherwise go for the tube.
The 12" CS1204T actually has a GT4-12 in it rebadged as a CS, but the 10"CS1204T has a CS woofer in it.

All are single coil. Since you have the budget, you could go in for a 12". What amplifier will you use?

Thanks Samji for clearing things up.

Will preferably go for JBL only. May be a 4 channel. Please suggest that too. Now he has a simple Pio MP3 HU, JBL components in front and rear are JVC's.

Can all these including sub be attached to a single 4 ch amp. or should he go for 1 2ch and 1 4ch amp ?

Also will he still gets the JBL 1 year warranty if the dealer do not provide the bill ?

You won't be able to connect the 4 speakers and the sub to a 4-ch amp. (Unless you wire the speakers in parallel. Definite no-no).

1. If you want to power them all, you'll need a 2-ch (or monoblock) amp for the sub, and a 4-ch amp for the speakers. Your wiring cost will be a bit higher (higher guage wiring required, 3 sets of RCA interconnects).

2. Or you can get just a 4-ch amp and power the front speakers and the Sub, with the rear speakers running off the HU.

3. Or, if you want just the sub powered go for a 2-ch (or monoblock) amp only.

What's the amp budget :-) ? I'd personally suggest option 2 if the amp budget is upto 9K (You can get a JBL CS60.4 amp for that). For 7K (in addition to the 9K), you can add a JBL CS60.2 and go for option 1.

If you go for option 3, get just the CS60.2 for 7K.

Again, since between option 2 and 3, the difference is just 2k, I'd suggest option 2. (Wiring costs will be about the same for option 2 & 3, except you'll need 2 RCA interconnects for option 2, and only 1 RCA interconnect with option 3).

You'll need about 3K-4K more for good wiring in any case.

BTW, could you tell us which HU is your friend running? (The number of pre-outs will also count to some extent in the decision).

actually if I had 16K for 2 amps I would consider the Pio 6200 for the sub and rear and bridge a 60.4 for the front! he he he. As TIm the Tool man says "More Power". :-)

No baba. No bill= no JBL warranty.
I agree with Navin, get a mono+4ch. If you have the money, why not? A CS mono + CS 4ch will cost you about 18K together.

HV, do that! A bill is required as most warranties need a DATED bill.

It must be oversight. Do not worry, go and collect your bill, anytime. Tell preetam that you are Sam's friend from team-BHP and that will sort you out nicely.

Arre what man? Where you are getting engineering into the picture, like hydrashok mentioned, I was just making fun of his typo.

I am also mechanical engineer man, full pain in the arse. Had to do lot of copying man, to clear the exams. Some say the long term effects of the same are still evident.
