Why two sets? Check out Pioneer REV Coaxials.

I believe I have listened to all three of the speakers you are thinking of purchasing.

I can't remember specifics on the Polks at the moment.

I think the MB Quarts are a lot better than the Infinity speakers. The Infinities sounded like the vocals were behind a curtain. They were muffled in comparison to all the other speakers I listened to.

I found the MB Quarts to have a good balance with surprising bass for their size. You might not like the tweeter. Of course things will vary with each installation and I listened to them in a wall and not a car. If I had to pick I would go with the MB Quarts. You can find them cheaper too if you shop around.

I heard the infinity 6022i in circuit city and they sound ok for mid and high, the guy said if you're planning to get a sub later I might wanna go for these. and the Polk db651 sounded more bass then infinity but kinda lack of the claryity of mid and high. I havent had the chance to listen to MB quartz, I guess I'm more senesitive to mid bass mid and high, like drum playing.

You might want to try the entry level Alpines also. I thought they sounded pretty good compared to what you are looking at currently.

I forgot to mention, the reason I wanted 2 sets of 6.5 coax is cause my budget is around 100 per set, and i cant really find much components around that price. http://www.millionbuy.com/ has good pricing but I am so confused on what to get, right now its just gonna power by my clarion HU, later on when I got more money I'll get an amp and eventually get another amp w/sub.
