I just read thru all 4 pages. All I see is a discussion with pros and cons, likes and dislikes. Certainly nothing to be calling people douchbags over.

Having met both Bob Carver and Matt Polk in person for extended amounts of time, I can say they are cut from the same mold.

To equate Matt Polk with Dr. Bose indicates that you don't know much about eithers products.

Hey, don't get mad at me because of your ignorance.

FYI, the DBX line of car speakers are cheap, entry level stuff. You should try the SR6500 series.

You may be right Jesse , but the only experience I have had with Polk is my DBX,s and what I have heard at the retail stores . Not impressed . You prove me wrong and tell me where to go and listen to some of his stuff that is high end and I will go .

Wait a sec.....you just said I was the last person you would ask for advice and then you turn around and ask me for advice!?! Oh boy.

Anyway, I have no idea where any Polk products are located in your area. However, if you can make it to Baltimore on April 9th, Polk is having a private demo at their HQ. I can get you in.

You know im just playing with you Jesse...And thanks for the invite...!!!! They carry polk at our Best buy , right next to Bose room . Like I said earlier , I do like the older stuff from Polk . The stuff im referring to is the NEW Polk speakers and such . Pretty main stream . But if I could make up to the Demo , I would in a heart beat , then you can slap me... 8-[
