    Infinity or Polk Audio

    I have install alpine sps-170a recently, but they hanlde 40 WRMS and i want some coax speakers that can handle a little bit more, i found this:

    Inifinity 6012i:
    4-Ohm impedance
    Power Handling, RMS: 60 Watts

    or

    Polk Audio db650
    Impedance: 4 ohms
    RMS Power (continuous): 60 Watts

    I can get then at same price, what do you recommend me, stay with alpine or upgrade to one of this or what other spekaers u subjest me, budget $80

    Thanks

    Polk audio is great for home audio, Inifinity is better for car audio.

    I have db 650's in the rear of miy wifes Element, and think they are a good coax. They have better midbass than the Infinity's (punchier) but the Infinity's have a bit more clarity. The Element also has db6500 comps in the front, also a good speaker set for the $$$. All of those listed have very bright tweeters that can saw your ear off if played too loud.

    Polk makes great everything. Big Polk fan here. I have the LSI system in my house etc. then the Polk Momo's in my car. Amazing speakers always out prove themselves! I can't wait to get my hands on the new RS series!
