    Which pair: buying tonight

    I absolutely need a pair of coaxs in my doors, i only have rears right now because my fronts were horrible and i am fed up with car audio and internet purchases... I know there is better for the price but i need something and i don't need the BEST... I just need sound...

    I will be powering the pair with a JBL 180.2 @ 4ohms, 90rms to each... i will turn the gain down a bit if need be...

    If these were the only speakers you could choose from, which would you get and why...

    I want the best sound/ midbass combo out of these options...

    Thanks guys

    Cross the Infinity off you list cause they ****! I hear kickers lower end a couple of times and enjoyed them very much. I'm a hardcore fan of all of Polks products and The alpine Type S's are pretty good...

    I would either go w/ the kickers or the Alpines....

    I would lean just slightly to the polks. I have a pair 6.5 alpine type S for me they sound great. Nice thump too. Polk might be slighly better for the front though.
