I'm looking forward to buy a new set of speakers, which one would you recomend the Polk Audio SR6500 or the Boston Acoustics Pro60.

Or even a MB Quart QSD 216, Focal 165KP or Morel Dotech Ovation...

Thanks in advance.

They're all great component sets, can you listen to any of them?

This decision comes down to personal preference, IMO you cannot go wrong with any of them

All speakers you recomended are very good. But I would put the SR series up against Bostons Z series. They're all great and no matter which ones you choose your going to be happy.

Thanks to all of you.
Unfortunatelly I won't be able to listen to any of them, so I'm doing lots of research and hearing as much opinions as I can.

How do you like your SR 12? I have been considering one of those. Also how much power would you recommend? Oh and what enclosure do you have it in? Oh and what other sub would you say it compares to? Sorry to thread jack.

I really liked the SR6500's when I got to listen to them, but your best bet would be to listen to each and go from there.

Are these Polk's SR6500's better than the Momo's that they have? I'm looking for a set myself and I've lookind into the Momo's. Thanks.

Yes they are above the Momo line.

bah I got a set of SR6500's that have been sitting in my room waiting to be installed for the past 3 months. I will admit I know nothing about the Bostons but here is what I can say about the polks. I have only heard great things about them, one thing to consider though the crossovers are MASSIVE roughly 6" x 4" and just seem bigger in person. The polks also have many mounting options, can make em into coaxials, or use one of the 3 different tweeter pods or surface mount the tweeters. The build on them is great and I really doubt they would dissapoint. Again though this is mostly all speculation as I have yet to install mine so take it with a grain of salt.

SR6500, TS-C720PRS, or CMX265Kick.

Between Boston PRO60 and Polk SR6500, I'd probably go with the Polks.
But now I'd like to hear your opinion about:

- Boston Acoustics SPZ60
- Focal 165K2P
- Morel Hybrid Ovation 6,5"
- Polk Audio SR6500 (again)
- MB Quart Q216 (although I don't think I'd buy them)

Thanks in advance...

Are you saying that the Polk crossovers are large? The Pros are pretty dam large as well.
