Definatley thinking about buying these (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_17713_Polk+Audio+MOMO+MM6+-Silver-.html)

Any input on these would be nice as I'm thinking about buying a set. If there's better out there for the same price then just let me know

Thanks

You won't beat them for the price. They really are a great set. Mounting depth is pretty substantial though

They are as good if not a little better than others at the $139.00 price. For another $70-$100 you could have something a lot better. IMO

If you are on a budget though they would be one I would strongly consider.
Budget comps. I would look at and this is IMO only, based on what I have listed to. Each has their plus/minus but when on a budget you are going to make some sacrafices 99% of the time.
PG RSd, Polk Momo, Used 720PRS, Used Hertz HSK165, Aura MR62 (hard to find) or some of the old Crystal Comps. (hard to find).

I appreciate the input. Infact I was really hoping to find a set of those 720PRS' for a $150 but I doubt that's happening. Those old Crystal comps are nice but I really doubt I'll find any

Budget ballin ain't easy but right now I need money elsewhere so:crap:

Well I've pretty much narrowed it down to a set of these or the Pioneer Premier TS-D720C

What you think?

You can find the 720's for $200 used sometimes a little cheaper but you have to search and be patient.

So you had the MM6's?

Don't worry about my doors, their sealed and properly deadened already. Only thing I might add is a deflex pad just cuz

Might check and see if he has any of the 177's left. These are sought after by many as well.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm now leaning towards buying new though....unless I find a really good deal

That is a great deal on those. Even on ebay they bring more money new I IIRC they where around $500 or so when you could by these new when they were made by Alpine. Those are about as new as they get.

If you want some great comps. on a budget those are some.IMO

I would see if you could work out a price deal on them get them down a little closer to where you want to be.

So their really that much better than the MM6's or those Pioneers?

Thanks again for the help

Yes. Do a search around here or over there on DIYMA read some stuff about them. You should be able to google them and get a bunch of info also. There are reviews of them on DIYMA I know and I am sure there are more across the web.

Just saying they are def. worth your time to check out.

I am not even sure he even has them anymore they may have sold once he put them on ebay. If not you might even be able to snag them super cheap on there.

Here some BNIB on ebay might watch them, see if you can sneak in under the radar and pick them up.

Cool

Thanks for all the help

However I noticed that those speakers aren't the same one's as the guy was selling on DIY. But if their good then their good, hopefully no one else reads this thread and sees those speakers:sneaky:

Yes you are correct those are the 177A series.

Just trying to help out. I know buying comps. is can be a huge pain the a**. We all have opinions on ton's of different stuff and people may not like what others like.

To bad you cannot listen to some of these before you buy, which is an issue for about 99% of everyone it seems.

Will you like or love these I have no clue. Are they a quality speaker that sound good IMO yes.

Keep it coming! I really do appreciate all the input

However one thing I noticed is a general concensus of the Alpine comp's having a real lack of mid-bass. This could be a bit of a problem as I listen to alot of rap and hip-hop music and mid-bass is a must for me

On the other hand I hear that the MM6's have a LOT of mid-bass. One of the main reason's I was attracted to the set in th first place. It would be nice to listen all these before I buy:crap:

I can give a full report once I get mine in. But from what I been reading about they preform rather well. Only grip is the mounting depth.

Cool let me know what you think once you get them installed (hopefully soon)

Still open to other suggestions

i have the 177r and love em. amazing sound. but like most have said they are a little lacking on the midbass response. with a properly tuned system including the sub you will be very happy.

Thanks for the response. I was looking for some input on those 177's

Thing is I already have a sub (15" NS) so whichever comp set I get will need to be able to blend in smoothly with it. Now I understand installation and tuning is the biggest part but having a capable set of comps and amp is a good start;)

The Cadence CWM6 Midrange driver has a lot of low end to it, I did not get a chance to tune them proper yet since it was getting late but I have them crossed off at 80htz.

they produce some really good low end response. I am running a SAX.50.4 at 4ohm so 80rms and so far they do the job well. I have not used any deadiner yet on my doors so there is quite abit outside noise to really get a good feel for them.

They shine alot better then my Powerbass 2XL-6.5C Kit

Pretty accurate bass response from 350hz down to the 80hz range, Vocals sound decent as well.

Thanks for the review

Let me know how they sound once you get everything all tuned up. I like what I hear so far except for the vocals being "decent"

Look foward to an update;)

Hmmm

Those mm6's are starting to look like a good choice. If anyone has any experience with these let me know what's up

Thanks
