I have been trying to decide between the polks and the B/A sl6os for my fronts. But I keep hearing about how great the PGs are. And at a great price too.
I'm looking for 6.5s that will sound really good runnning on 75 watts rms.
Any opinions would really help.

RSDs are good for the money.

but the SL60s i hear are best of the 3, so i'd shoot for those.

btw, whats your budget?

i was thinking $100-$200 for front comps.

Could also throw the AQ comps in the mix. I run 60's in the GF's car and am happy with them. I've heard the PG's and they were ok, but nothing special. Guy who ran them upgraded to the AQ's and he's much happier. Only got to hear them for a few songs, but they had a good sound and got quite loud.

I'd have to play with them more to give a better review, but haven't had the chance...

that means audioquart right? did a quick search, they seem a little hard to find and pricy too.
if i was looking for the right ones that is.

got it - thanks. i'll look into those.
anybody else running the AQs or heard the BA sl60s or the db6501s?
also - is 75 rms enough for all these sets?
any other suggestions for 6.5 comp sets that would sound great on 75 rms would be appreciated. $100-$200 looking for full, clear sound with smooth highs.

Polks are very good and smooth. Boston's are great speakers at every level. They do have a brighter tweeter than the polks. Some may even say harsh, but that is a personal debate. 75 rms should make either one of those sing.

thanks all for the advice.
if anyone else has experience with these comp sets please chime in or recommend something else.
