Lets me start by stating these are my first set of Polk's. I was debating between these and some Infinity Reference component or Kappa Coax. I have them in a 98 Accord being pushed with 75 watts RMS. Overall they sound good but not as expected. Mid bass is ok. Maybe I am dreaming but I really thought they would sound better. The amp also pushes a set of Kenwood 5 way 6x9's on the rear deck. The Kenwoods totally blow these away...maybe because they are 95 db vs 91 or 92 on the Polk's. Basically the Kenwoods are twice as loud. I have to compensate by turning gain all the way up on the Polks and to about half on the Kenwood's, then set the fader to F 3 or 4 to get a decent soundstage. Problem is then my Kenwoods are way under utilized. I dont have a sub yet so the 6x9's provide the bass in my setup, hard to do when you cant push the speaker or all you hear is sound coming from behind you...This is not something I expected when I was shopping. All things equal I bet the Infiniti's would be louder as they are 2 ohm so they would be sucking 100 watts RMS out of my amp. Just some food for thought...I probably should have thought of this when shopping but, oh well, I didn't. Once I get a sub I hope to tune to a sound that makes me completely happy. Till then...
