Hey Cooladitya what is your budget actually? Everything depends upon the budget when it comes to cars.[;)]

But if its only 1 RCA pre-out then firstly upgrade your HU. A 1 output HU will never provide you with the complete bass and thump effect of a subwoofer.

But hey seriously you will not get your desired thump effect from your subwoofer with that HU. It will hardly be heard outside your car. If you don want subwoofer for show-off purposes then go ahead!

Your budget is very limited. You can get a 2 channel amp worth Rs.4k. Subwoofer costs another 5k. woofer enclosure costs another 1k and good quality wires cost another 2k.

If you go for grey products you can fit it in your budget but never compromise on the wiring part. Always go for good quality branded wires. These are some lessons i learnt from fitting subwoofer in my Verna![:)]

JBL 4 channel amp costs around 8k i guess. It will exceed your budget!

Our member Raj said he was using tube and he was not satisfied with it , better go for a box.

I think only Raj or Ilango can help you with this.

My suggestion change the HU first. It is the heart of the ICE.
