    ever consider CDT? I'd rule out the polks and Pioneers. Diamond would be my first choice out of your list.

    You figure this how?

    I would take the Polk Momos before any of your other options. Rich clean sound, Great highs and Lows, Tweeter doesn't pierce your ears, etc.

    I love my D6's, I replaced a set of XR's with 'em and was amazed at the difference I noticed.

    I wouldn't. They are both sold...as well as your whole list. IMO you NEED to listen to them ALL to make a decision.

    The DAs would get my vote. Although why not step up to a 6.5? It can and will fit into that car. Ive done it numerous times. Its a shame to lose 1.25" of cone space for nothing....

    I didn't want to go through the whole modding part of a 6.5, I just bought an adapter so I can use the 5.25s. I went with the polks.

    Yeah good choice man!

    I run them and they are very sweet for the price! As you said, rich sound, nice tight bass for 5.25", tweeter is smooth and crisp, also gets loud!

    hope you'll like them..
