Hi,
just came back from SLT, this shop, new century electronics intro me this speaker

polkaudio DB6501

worth to get? he charge me 388 for 1 coxial n 1 componet speaker...

wondering is it fake a not.... scare scare later buy liao, then is fake 1...

what u guys say?

from US, the price range from 150 to 190 for the component speaker. he quoted me 260. so now i am wondering is it real stuff or fake 1?

any advise?

or should i just go to Ted n install helix?

helix = 1 year warrenty = good aftersale service plus ted is the man.
BTW, polk audio has been around for a while, they sound warm but lack the fast of a helix, just for inform, they help make speaker for SONY this day, the high end one.

Hi
for a start, let me put it this way, go to any audio shop, walk in tell the shopkeeper, owner or anyone that work there, this are the type of music I listen to. what do there recom!
Decide ahead on a few thing,
1: Are you keeping the stock head unit?
2: Do you want to use a AMP?
3: $$$$
4: Sound proof do I want this?
5: Listen to a few cars of the same make(If you need to PM me(EX2.0) happy to let you listen to mine)

just went to ted today :)
ask him abt polk audio, he say nowadays most fake 1... lol
the model is 6501 which i cant find on the official website

plus.... just gana a damage of dark blue component plus coaxial speaker at ted place
:)

just done tunning by him, not very much my liking. too sharp on the component liao... he put front +2 for me, but when i listen to the music on this cd very nice, but for my songs...

i adjust to -4
haha
bass i put +4 where he put 0 for me
:P

will go back to him 2 weeks later... speaker need to run in 1?
