View Full Version : Which pair: buying tonight

07-05-2006, 02:35 PM
I absolutely need a pair of coaxs in my doors, i only have rears right now because my fronts were horrible and i am fed up with car audio and internet purchases... I know there is better for the price but i need something and i don't need the BEST... I just need sound...

I will be powering the pair with a JBL 180.2 @ 4ohms, 90rms to each... i will turn the gain down a bit if need be...

If these were the only speakers you could choose from, which would you get and why...

I want the best sound/ midbass combo out of these options...

Thanks guys

Polk 6-1/2" Speakers (DB650)

Kicker 6 1/2" Coaxial Speakers (055KS60)

Alpine Type-S 6-1/2"

Infinity Reference 6-1/2"

Cross the Infinity off you list cause they ****! I hear kickers lower end a couple of times and enjoyed them very much. I'm a hardcore fan of all of Polks products and The alpine Type S's are pretty good...

I would either go w/ the kickers or the Alpines....

i would go with the kickers. but really i would buy a pair of pioneer tsd-170r's.

alpine tweets are not too clean and clear IMO, just a bit decent

i have always loved polk stuff, very decent for the money.

Polk good entry level stuff imo. kinda curious how their top of the line comps are as well

I would lean just slightly to the polks. I have a pair 6.5 alpine type S for me they sound great. Nice thump too. Polk might be slighly better for the front though.

alright, i'm thinking about the polks... any other ideas guys?

But why CC/BB retail pricing?

i say try the pioneers too, they have a nice lowend impact
