    Polk Audio DXi 570 vs Rockford Fosgate T1682

    I have already had the polk's(DXi570) in my front doors for a while now. I just ordered the rockford's(T1682), so I will find this out for myself eventually but I was wanting to know which are better?

    Based on the specs I was thinking the Rockford's, but I don't want to just assume that and put myself through more work than needed. If the rockford's are better then I am going to put them in the front doors and move the Polk's back to the rear doors.

    For now they are being powered by a Kenwood Excelon X996 HU, but within a year I will have a Kenwood KAC-8405 powering the door speakers. This amp outputs 60w rms x4 at 4 ohms.

    I know I should have got the same models in all four doors but I'm not rich and I got a good deal on the rockfords.

    Just so you get an idea of my entire system....
    I Have a Rockford Fosgate Punch P3 12". It is the model P3D2-12. I have it wired for 4ohms in a sound ordinance bass bunker 12" vented box. It is the model BB12-150v, which is 1.60 cubic feet.

    The amplifier is the Kenwood KAC-9105D. Since the sub is wired for 4ohms it is outputting 500W rms to the sub, which the sub is rated to handle 600w rms. This sub/box/amp combo works great most people think I have 2 12" subs in the back.

    BTW, the vehicle is a 2006 Ford Focus ZXW. Yes, the wagon style, but I'm married and have a child so I needed a vehicle like that. Even with the single 12" hatchback style box, there is a lot of room in the back for groceries and anything else.

    I tried to put links on all the equipment so no one had to search for specs of my components, but I guess since I'm not a very active member or for whatever reason it denied my post with even just one link.

    There is no one that has any experience at least with the Rockford Fosgate T1682 2-way 6"x8" speakers? I know how the Polk Audio DXi570's sound, I mainly want to know what other people think about these RF T1682.

    These Rockford Fosgate T1682 6"x8" 2-way speakers sound good. They don't sound as good as the Polk Audio DXi570 so I left the Polk's in the front door and the Rockford's in the rear door.

    I'm sure the T1682 Rockford's will sound a lot better once I hook up a 4 channel amp to all of my door speakers. I will be getting a Kenwood KAC-8405, which outputs 60Wx4 at 4ohms. I expect a great improvement in sound quality from both sets of speakers once the amp is hooked up to them.
