    Polk Audio SR6500

    What is everyone's thought on these? I listened to them against the Boston, Focal, and JL's and they were incredible. The Boston's were close but the Polks were just so smooth with every thing. Thought I would ask before I buy a set.

    Re: Polk Audio SR6500

    Haven't heard them in person yet.

    They are the highest reviewed set of components EVER by CA&E... even higher than the Alpine F#1 Status...

    One thing I will say, is I bet they DO sound amazing.

    They use a modified Vifa XT25 Ring-dome radiator tweeters, and a high excursion Neo mid w/ a phase plug. VERY similar to what I have in my truck setup as active right now, but at a FRACTION of the price.

    All I have to say is the tweeter is AMAZING, absolutely ****. I love it.

    I also heard the Polks against the Z6's and Focal 165K2P's. I prefered the Polks over both, personally.

    If the were a little more attainable via the interent(less $$$) I would have picked up a pair. Instead I went with the Seas Lotus References

    I am sure you would be pleased with them.

    Re: Polk Audio SR6500

    Interesting .....
    I found them insanely smooth also , but wonder what they will do with VERY dynamic music at LOUD volume levels ? I decided to withold judgement until THAT proves itself to me.
    Thinking about putting them in my wife's Z06 ....

    Re: Polk Audio SR6500

    What year Z does your wife have? As soon as I'm out of medical school I'm all over a Z06. I've been wanting one since 2000 Also I don't think the polks would behave all that well with high volumes, just by they way they sound, but I could be wrong.

    My fiancee's cousin is getting married in Cinci sometime in the near future (thinking this weekend or next...can't remember off hand).

    If, by chance, we do happen to attend (it's still up in the air, 4hr drive = teh sux0r), we need to get together.



    As to the original question....I've read tons of glowing reviews about those Polk speakers. Haven't heard them personally yet....but most everybody who hears them seems to enjoy them.
