Hi, I have a set of JL VR5.25cxi installed in my mustang front door panels. I hooked it up to my pioneer HU and it has some sq but no spl at all. Also worth noting is I used an adapter to fit the 5.25 into a 5x7 hole. When I have time, I'll install my mtx amp to power it but I have a question. Does anyone have experience with polk momo speakers? I was thinking about getting the Polk Audio MOMO Carbon MMC 570 2-Way Speakers.

Should I stick with the JL's or upgrade to polk momo's? I've heard good things about them and for only $100 new, it's a bargain. Bytheway, these speakers are all coaxial as I don't know how to install components, nor have the time to do so. I'm sure one day I'll learn how to do it. Thanks for the help.

One more question, is there a way to adjust the tweeters that are built in the coaxials to shoot slightly upward? I notice the sound always hits directly at my legs, which is pretty bad positioning. I don't quite have the money to get it professionally mounted into a picker panel bytheway. Thanks again [Confused]

I have the polk momo's 6.5 for front stage. I can tell you thats these things are sweet. Loud and clear at all volumes at least for me. Seems to have a more natural sound and a smoother tweeter. Not harsh if you know what I mean. I am very happy with them and at 100 bucks that is a nice bargin.
