    Re: polk comps

    the funny thing is that i used to have some old polk/momo comps (the very first ones) which were also supposed to be 6.5" and were actually like 6.75". i ended up dremeling my door a little to make them fit. maybe they don't know how to measure???

    Re: polk comps

    forgot to add that my momos had decent midbass, nothing great. if you want good midbass for cheap look at the re re's and orion p2. also, obviously the midbass will only be as good as the damping/install job on the doors.

    Re: polk comps

    I think polk uses actual cone diam. for it measurements, not overall like most other companies. Most 6.5" sets have a 5.75" cutout diam.

    Re: polk comps

    the newer style boston acoustic pro60 have neo magnets and are very shallow, i believe less than 2 1/2". i have a set coming today cuz my **** oz matrix's and their 3.5" depth were just a tad too deep for my doors. i'll snap a pic once the ups man drops them off. the diamond hexs also have a fairly shallow mounting depth. Is there anyway you can use an mdf ring to space out the speakers??? I tried but the speaker would then hit my door panel....

    edit: sorry, forgot about the budget concerns with my above suggestions.
