    Polk db6501 vs JL AUDIO VR650 Budget = $150

    This is going into a honda s2000 with a jl 10w6v2, jl 500.1, and a pioneer p880prs head unit.

    I won't have an amp for the components, so it'll just be running off the deck.

    My budget is like 150. Its down to these 4.

    -Polk MMC6500

    -DIAMOND AUDIO D661

    -Polk db6501

    -JL AUDIO VR650


    I just need to know which would I get the most out of if I'm not hooking it up to an amp.

    Certainly. You can run any of those off HU power... and they'll all be less than satisfactory compared to externally amping them.

    They'll still sound pretty good with an aftermarket headunit right?

    Yes, they'll sound decent. But do yourself a favor and be sure to approach it with less than stellar expectations. An amp will definitely make a night and day difference vs HU power.

    any reccommendations on amps that won't cost me an arm and a leg? I'm thinking about picking up a used jl. would the 300/4 or the 300/2 be better? my car is a 2 seater, so theres only speakers on the doors.

    just stick to a 2ch amp, that 300/2 would be nice!

    I'd recommend the Polk Momo's and biamp them with a 4 channel amp. What's your budget for an amp?

    200 is my budget, but thats pushing it because I just bought a JL 10w6v2, JL 500/1, and the pioneer p880prs.

    I probably won't buy an amp until I can find a used one at a good price.


    So why did the guy above you recommend a 2 channel, but you recommend a 4 channel. What is the difference?

    Re: Polk db6501 vs JL AUDIO VR650 Budget = $150

    A 4 channel amp will allow you to biamp the Momo's (use 2 channels for the mids and 2 channels for the tweeters).

    Here's a very decent deal: Infinity 7541a

    I'd recommend that since I can vouch for it. Only drawback is, it's pretty huge (12" x 15" x 2.75"). Unless you can score a sweet deal on an Alpine PDX-4.100 or 4.150 (very tiny), an Eclipse XA4000 (little bit bigger), or a JBL PX300.4 (also kinda large).
