well, revtech if budget is not an issue, i think you can opt for components. Blaupunkt makes a component set in 4 inches costing 3.4k and better than that you can spend upto 5k and get a kicker(Ex-4.2) component set which i am using in my esteem and believe me they compliment my jbl gto 936s at the rears perfectly. The jbls are known to be a little sweet sounding while the kickers are more laid back, thus this setup gives me an ideal balance atleast to my ears .
Comin back to your question if the jbl cs or the jbl gto 4 inchers sound better??
IMHO, the gto's are better, i ve heard them both at my dealers place when i chosing between different brands and sets of spks. and i feel the gto's have a much superior tweeters.

I know for a fact that the GTO 426e have a little better bass (if you can call it that) BUT then the sumo position is less than ideal. It's wide open from the back, practically no baffle. So how would you tell the difference?
IMO for the sumo i would just get a speaker with decent upper mid and highs.

Total dilemma. Is there a model called 'CS-GTO'???
By Sam's advice in post 17, he's referring the CS 4".But, i listen to tamil filmi music mostly, which i feel consist of all the frequencies(low, mid and high).So, Navin if I don't mind paying 700 bucks extra for a GTO over a CS, do u think GTO is the speaker to go for???
