Default Subwoofer upgrade

Im looking for an upgrade to my GZ TW 12MK2.
Please suggest options around the price of 6K (will be run off Kenwood 8401 bridged)

Also, what are the current prices for subs from Bull Audio, JBL, Alpine etc. ?

Aditya, I think you need to upgrade your amp.

Try connecting your existing sub with a different amp and then decide what do you want to upgrade

But why you want to change your existing sub is there any problem with it or you dint liked the way it sounds or is there something missing.

Well, same question as karan asked. What are your expectations from the new sub? Any genre of music that your present sub is not able to play well?
Polk Audio db 124 is a nice sub for ~5.5k. Have heard it in a sealed 1.2 liter box, the bass was smooth. If you can extend your budget, then an entry level ID can serve you well.

@abhibh
Blaupunkt gtw 1200 should be available for ~2.5k.

Any idea about Rockford Fosgate's pricing? They're less discussed on TBHP.

sorry i havent been replying to the IM's Aditya. the sub you mentioned is no longer there (ctx)
I would suggest keeping the 8401 and going in for a sealed POLK sub (10 inch) in a readymade company built enclosure. Will do you lots of good ;-)

Frank, since you're well versed with the industry can you shed some light of Rockford Fosgate's Subs and prices.
