    Icon12 Need help on polks

    Not sure where to post this please move if needed. Thank you

    Yes I searched first lol not new new to threads. lol

    I have a pioneer 6500bt and I just ordered from crutchfield 2 sets of the Polk dxi570's for my ford ranger 09 I was wondering what would be the best amp to power these speakers or would you just power them with the head unit?

    Not a lot of speakers to choose from because of the depth of the rear speakers.

    No sub installed maybe down the road just not right now.

    I installed lots of amps and sub back in the day haha I'm 38 so I don't want the boom sound I want clean sound now!


    Thank you for your time.

    You can run the rear speakers off the Head unit with a bass blocker/cap, and run the fronts off the amp, and Bridge ch 3/4 for a sub, on either amp

    Re: Need help on polks

    I think ill amp them all. I want clean sound not to worry about bass. I listen to rock music and like to hear the drums and guitar stuff you don't hear on factory radios

    Re: Need help on polks

    Polk are good speakers.I was running a pair of DB6.5 coax for a bit on a HiFonics VII vulcan, and they sounded very nice.Just adjust the gains so you dont have the rear overwhelm the front stage,and you should be fine.Im running CDT speakers, and they sound really nice,a little more than the polks, but worth it
