No amp - which speaker? Infinity or Polk?
Replacing the sound bar and probably the front speakers (not the tweeters) in my 2012 Jeep Wrangler with 130 stereo. Plan to upgrade the head unit to something double din with more power, but do not plan to install an amp. Which would be the better choice, the Polk 651 series or the Infinity reference 6032 series? I've installed the Polks in an old boat before and liked them, so leaning slightly that way; the reason I'm considering the Infinity is because based on the 2ohms spec vs. 4ohm spec and 93db sensitivity rating vs. 92db, I'm thinking the Infinity's might be slightly louder than the Polks and without an amp and top down that could be important? They are basically the same price, so wondering what people think. I know I'd have to use the slim mount versions in teh front dash and could use either version in the soundbar (although regular version would mean using the aftermarket grills instead of hte factory).
I'd love opinions on this. Also if anyone has any suggestion for a lowish cost, highish powered double din bluetooth head unit with Pandora and sat. radio (no need for nav) , I'd love to hear that as well. I was just looking at the Kenwood, Sonys and Pioneers on Crutchfield.
