Is the blaupunkt basstube still available? I got a 10" bass tube. Its rated at 80W rms I guess. Something pretty low. But it hits hard. The bass is just awsome. Worth giving it a dheko if its still available in the market.

It seems Pioneer Bass Tubes are not at all available in Indian market. Pioneer don't have any showroom or company outlet in India... Same case for Bazooka. All these foreign companies sell their crash products in the market to make money.
Well Bluepunkt has better reputation. I will go for branded Bass Tube rather all different components.

what size of round speakers in the front?
the 6x9 speakers in the rear would make quite a bit of bass. if you want more boom add a 12" free air sub and boom you'll wake the neighbourhood. if you want defined/refined bass you got to make more changes...for example i would get rid of the 6x9s if i could afford that.

let us know about what you want and i am sure someone will be there to assist you with models, prices, etc... Sam, JB, Gunbir, Aseem, are you listening.
Any clue how the Bass improves after the 6*9 are put in wooden boxes?? anyone experienced that??

jk, the cheapest amp+sbu combo is a 2.5K 502 (without B&W) and a 4K Pio 12". The sky is the limit just ask Autophile he's getting there :-)

Buffet, boxes provide better control over a woofer. To make this very simple remember when thewoofer's diaphram vibrates about 50% of the sound comes from the rear. this sound can be destructive etc. I can offer you a more detailed version but my good friend Sam will complain :-) LOL

You will get better bass and sound if you install 6 X 9" in wooden boxes (sealed). The bass will get more defined and tighter. Though you need more power in this case.

But fitting a speaker's in Wooden boxed will consume more space than Bass Tube. Also look wise it is ...

Buffet, if you are interested in building boxes try a product called Box Plot http://www.diamondcut.com/boxplot.htm. it will let you insert the T/S specs of your driver and you can then choose change the box size and you can see how it affects the response of the woofer. or you could do this online at http://www.audiogrid.com/audio/ or www.lalena.com or download all of these and have a ball http://www.speakerbuilding.com/software/

there is more if you want.....:-) *EWG*

BTW are you a fan of Warren Buffet or do you just love buffets (as in lunch and dinner). :-)
