    Re: polk vs infinity 6.5 comps

    Both these brands are carried at circuit city.. Check them out there! I had this same debate in my head for a while.. The Polks seem to have a bit more bass to them, well, a lot more bass than the infinitys which seemed like the produced none at all.

    Overall I decided with the Infinity 6010cs.. They played KMFDM a lot better than Polk IMO, a lot clearer vocals than polk it seemed,perhaps from the lack of bass?(woulda gone for the kappa perfects but they dont fit my application >.<). The lack of bass? I have subs for that.

    -Lurius

    PS: My opinions are based on the 6010CS vs. Db650's



    Vehicle: 2004 Silverado ECSB 5.3L

    Re: polk vs infinity 6.5 comps

    I have a set of Infinity Perfects 6.1 comps up for sale if you decide to go that route.

    I think its commonly accepted that Infinity's are better for upper range and clarity wheras the Polks are more midbass directed. Thats what i have always found at least.

    PM me for more info on the Perfect 6.1's if interested
