I've read that the Boston's are quite capable in numerous threads, but I've only auditioned the Momo's.

That said, I'd go with the Polks just because they are very capable and enjoyable (to my ears) drivers.

Yep. I don't care for the way they sound. But that's me. :D

They're generally a safe bet. The new Pioneer D series comps (TS-D720C or TS-D1720C -- replacements for the discontinued REV comps) would be another safe bet. Great reviews thus far.

got polks on 135rms and get loud and sound good i gave them 150 for a few mins and wow will make your eyes water they can get so loud and midbass is good on non deadned or sealed doors cant imagine with that done plus they are only 2 weeks old so still breaking in

just needing to figure out how much power they can handle for sure and not blow

I'd only recommend that if the OP has the capability or the desire to go active.

save your money on spending it on the boston, go with polk and use the money saved into a good amp to power them!

Yep, focus on your front stage first. In fact, you might want to disconnect the rears altogether for a couple months so you can best tune the front stage. You might like it so much that rears might not even be needed, thus keeping the sound stage and imaging where it belongs.... up front.

I vote polks also. Had 75w going to them and they got plenty loud.
