These Polks we use heavily at our shop, they have a good sound and decent midbass, the perform well with after market head-units/receivers. for best sound thogh a proper component set is always better.

Also, Polk Tweeters, though Silk Dome, are notorious for being "harsh" that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's just their sound signature.

Hybrid audio makes some great coaxials that are worth every penny, but with any good speaker setup you should amp the speakers.

July 9, 2014 ok speaker exagerated highs

I like a flat response in speakers for realistic sound. I record music and reference the mix in my car also. The high boost makes it hard to judge a mix. might be good for some people but just too bright in one high frequency for me.

There seems to be one high frequency that is much louder than the rest around the frequency of a hi hat or cymbal. I prefer a flat response.
These speakers have that high boost which colors the sound and doesn't sound real.

August 27, 2013 Decent speaker

The speakers offer little to no bass but that wasn't a huge problem considering I have 2 rockford p3's. these speakers however do not offer a lot of mids either. The highs do get very loud though. Maybe if I would've amped them up that would've help with the mids. I've had the speakers for about 3 months and they are starting to rattle. However that is after turning them up to 35 (on a 60 volume scale) but most aftermarket speakers should be able to do that with ease. I'm not sure how these sound with an amp. But if you are not looking to amp these up and you have a sub that puts out pretty good bass.. These are not the way to go.

They work well with my 1000 watt amp. The only thing, the built-in tweeters can not handle the power. The tweeters sounds distorted when I turn my volume up over 28. Its better for me to have component speakers. But otherwise the mid range speakers itself sound good when I turn the tremble down. I would recommend these as a starter for a econmic buy.

Not a bad set of speakers but wanted matching front/rear, and they 651s was too deep in front for my application. Had these installed for just a month or so, but was overall quite happy with them- EXCEPT- they were very bright. Had to have a lot of high end cut to make my ears not bleed.

Put 4 of these in my toyota matrix, since they're really shallow they fit pretty well without much additional adjsutment in the car. They sound good too, i went with these over infinity kappas since it showed they were 100 RMS each and figured i'd save a little money and try these since they seemed better. I installed them with the amp I purchased. After a week 2 of them are already crackling pretty bad. I'm pretty upset that I pretty much just threw out money. BUT, this is not to say these speakers aren't nice, they're great. Shipping was, as always, fast from Sonic Electronix.
