Wondering if These are good speakers...

The only thing I am concerned about is that the tweeter is built into the Speaker itself and In my car, my tweeters are located in the A-Pillar.

Will the sound still be clear and loud, because thats what Im looking for, and I heard Polk is VERY good.

Yes ! They are very nice, If you can and if your looking for the coax's I would try to get the momo's. I use those and they are beautiful. The db series though are very good speakers. You can't go wrong with the polks.

i have the momo components and coaxials atm in my accord and love them. My only dislike is the grills, to easy for kids to get to the speaker itself and i have little ones.

I ordered the mmc6500 momo and they will be here today. I heard them at a local audio shop and choose them over the diamond d661a and a few others. They were by far the best ones there to my ear.

I just got back from circuit city. The db6500 comps were $189, which is a GREAT price. Cant find a better one. But I just looked and realized taht SATX posted the model above the db6500's and they are $10 less, so I might look into those.

I got a chance to listen to the db650's and db6500's at CC, and I am IMPRESSED. Very warm and crystal clear (when amped) but the mid-bass lacked, but then again they were in a sound board. Anyways, the 6500's DEF out performed the 650's (the coaxial verison). Bet the MMC6500's have some BEASTLY midbass considering the size of those bad boys.

Anyways, I'm looking at the MMC6500's for $180, which is a GREAT price. Its that, or the Crystal SSCS6's.

Any suggestions?

Where did you buy hem from, If you don't mind my asking?

Yes, That is what I will probably pick up.

The x-overs look MASSIVE!!! So do the mids, you should take some pics:yumyum:

Are they really that big?

I bought a set of Type R Alpines because I didn't need 90 RMS speakers (would have been a waste, my amp = 75 RMS at best, and could be overrated). After going to Tweeter, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.... I came to the conclusion that the Polk stuff was the best sounding Amped speaker. I only listened to the MMC stuff though (MOMO). All other speakers had different sound to them, but the MMC's were by far the best of them all, you won't be dissapointed if you get the MMC.

Your amping these, right?

If not, I'd say stick to the dB stuff.

I'm Amping them, when I get enough money to buy a 150wrms x2 @ 4ohm amp.

But for now I am using them off the deck. I'm getting the momo's because they are actually CHEAPER than the db6500's.

What would you recommend as a cheap but good amp to power these comps?

And I bet you went to NFM didn't ya? :D

Kicker06.... look into the Power Acoustik LT series over at milliionbuy.com, you can score the LT620/2 (2x150w rms @ 4 ohms) for about $90-95 shipped.

I was recommend a Planet Audio for $95 on eBay that does 150wrmsx2 @ 4ohms...so I might look into that.


its the Planet audio 3002.

150wrms x 2 @ 4ohms.

Would certainly get the job done dang near the same as the PA LT620/2. Is that $95 with shipping?

no

$95 + $16 for shipping.

Its a factory refurb though. But I have had good luck(cross my fingers AND touch wood) with refurbs.

Hmmm. Might be a coin toss. I have no direct experience with Planet Audio amps, so I can't comment in detail.

If I had a refurb 3002 and a new LT620/2 in front of me and I could only pick one, I'd be all over the LT. My opinion, anyways.

Run it at 4 ohms, keep the gain modest, and you'll be okay.

Well will it put out anywhere near what its rated?

Not underrated, but not overrated, either. They should yield output at or within 5-10% of the stated ratings (at 14.4V, of course). Hey, at $80 it leaves little room to complain. LOL

You can hit up ebay and look for a Phoenix Gold Xenon X100.2 or X200.2 - saw some on the cheap last week. Awesome amps.

i probably recommended the Planet Audio as i have a PA 4ch and monoblock, they are great amps very reliableand i ran a 4ch PA amp to my momos before it fried


It fried due to getting wet not anything to do with the amp itself.
