I have not heard either speaker but understand they are real nice!

I need some help deciding. I am using a JL 6 Ch amp pushing 65 W per channel. Was going to use the 3rd channel to drive tweets in the dash but I could bridge two channels.

I have a JL 12" sub with 500W Alpine Mono.

Any help on the 6.5" Speakers is appreciated!

Also considering 6x9 690 CVX for front doors in lieu of teh 6.5's. Again suggestiosn appreciated.

I listen to classic Rock/pop

I've got a set of Focal Polyglass speakers. They're the ones in my sig. I absolutely love them. They're 136mm which is 6mm larger than the average 5.25 component speaker. Also, Focal has awesome customer service. I did a review on the speakers and company in the speaker review section here. It should be near or at the top. I'd go Focal.

I put that focal set in my g/f's car on a Memphis amp 75x4 amp with some boston Acoustic 6x9s in rear. Its loud and clean. My coworker just got the HSK 165 installed in his car with some Hertz coax in the rear on a TMA amp 60x4 and his is louder and easier to listen to. I was really impressed with the Hertz. You might look into the Morel Tempo 6's also.

OP: go with the 165VR instead of the 165V1. :)

Those do look nicer.
