View Full Version : 6.5" components

05-17-2005, 08:50 PM
I've been shopping for components for a while now, and here are the choices I have. They will be IB, powered by an amp that will be matched with the set I choose. I'm looking for a nice clean sound, with good midbass that I'll be able to feel. I don't want really bright highs. Here are my choices

Alpine Type R

Infinity Kappa 60.7cs

Polk MOMO MMC6500

Polk db6500

Infinity Reference 6010cs

Lets hear your guys' opinions, everything is relatively close in price, I'm looking at less than 200 shipped for any of those.

I have run the Infinitys References - not a bad speaker for the price
obviously Kappas will be better

also check out the Diamond D6 series

I dont like alpine speakers.

I have the infinity ref's in my wife's car and the tweets are a little harsh but overall good for the money.

THe polk momo's are supposidly ok but never heard them.

There are much better options for the money. I would check out the elemental designs comps.

Look into the RE RE Components? perhaps?

I dont like alpine speakers.

I'm just curious if this is all Alpines or the just the Type Rs? Have you ever listened to the Type X comps? I think they sound **** good; that's just my opinion though. If you don't like the Type X, why? I'm not badgering, just looking for a knowledgable opinion before I get a set of Type Xs installed.

out of the ones that you are asking us to pick from i would say the Polk MOMO. i have heard all the sets of speakers. and the MOMO's by far blow all the rest of them out of the water

How harsh is harsh on the infinity ref's ? Harsher than your average metal/metallized/aluminum tweet? I'm looking at getting them(not to jack the thread) but if they are really harsh to the point it hurts like the speaks i have now:thumbsdo:, then i will be getting the polk db's.

i dont thin the infintitys refs have any bass to blend with the tweet. its pretty harsh. i dont like harsh tweets cause i get a headache but every one is different

I was dissapointed with the Alpine Type X's.
I say go with the Kappa's.

My RE RE Comps are alright, they just dont like that much power and the tweeter is harsh. And if I remember right, there is no tweeter attenuation on the crossover so I can tone down the tweet.

I had infinity Kappa 60.5s and i wouldnt ever buy them again. Like what has been said, very harsh tweets not blending well with the mids and the mids lack low end. inexpensive speaker but wasnt for me. for a little more on ebay i got ID cxs64s, alot better for the money
