well u have a lot of options to choose from..
1. pioneer 7100..
2. alpine mrv-t320 or 420..
3. JBL 301.1
4. sony xm-sd51x..
5. blaupunkt not sure of the model number..
but one amp that i would recommend above all this is the audison srx1( 23k) or the audison srx 2s (25k)..this amp is so small u cant believe ur eyes the power it gives,u got to see it to believe it..i have seen the audison amps with my own eyes so know how well they do..i know its a bit overbudget but this amp will never let u down and is surely worth the dough..so if u can afford it id say go get it..

for specs on these amps u can check this link out :

the audison srx5 costs 28,580 navin and is way way smaller than the 450..actually one thing that i love about the audison amps is their size,they are bloody small owing to the double sided construction..and its pretty hard to believe that they give that much power..

hhhmm..1st thing is that all these amps are not that readily available in india,atleast in bangalore..so u need to look around quite a lot and check some of the well known shops..
1. the pio 7100 costs 7k but not available in bangalore.
2. alpine not sure of its pricing could be around the 15-20k mark or maybe even less..
3. GTO 301.1 is 13k..
4. blaupunkt should also be around 10-15k mark..

based on ratings i would rate the
1. audison srx 2s..
2. alpine amps..
3. GTO 301.1
4. blaupunkt
5. pioneer..
these are my opinions and that of the others may vary..so id say see if u can listen to all of these amps and then decide..
