I am debating between the Polk DB6500 Components and the JL VR650 Components. I do not know which ones to get.

Also, what is a good amp to drive these? I want to get a 4 channel so that I can possibly get a sub in the future. I want to spend between 200-300 on the amp. I have been looking into the Alpine MRV545.

My current HU is the Pioneer deh-p80mp.

Any help would be much appreciated.

i've listened to polk before and they were decent. they were the momo series though. a budget on the amp would be helpful.

Budget on amp is 250-300. I was reading the sensitivity ratings for both and the Polk DB6500 are a 92 while the JL VR650s are at 89.5. For 50 dollars cheaper, the DB6500s seem like the better choice. Is this a good assumption or am i comparing apples and oranges?

go with the vr's i have yet to hear a polk set that sounds all that good. Are you stuck on these two comp sets? If not there are alot of good sets for the same price or cheaper.

I am not stuck on these 2 sets of comps. However, I am basing it on size and these are the two sets that i have found with good SQ and fair price that fit into my stock housings with minimal modifications. The RE and CDT comps are too deep. I think that the highest I can go is 2.5 inches on the bottom.

I owned the JL's and while not the best speaker I've ever had, they were better than any polks I've heard.
