View Full Version : Polk Momo or Db 6.5

Which would you put in the interior and the tower of the OBV 07 . Would you match them both or split between. and are they a direct replacement from the kenwoods??:confused: I have read Jesse c post many times and would like to avoid the trim ring.

8 speakers for MOMO at $400.00
8 speakers for DB651 at $300.00

Is it worth the difference?

I've never heard the MOMOs, but I have 6 of the DB651's in my boat and I love 'em. I have the 4 in the main cabin running off a Kicker ZX700.5, and the 2 in the bow powered from the head unit. Since I have a sub I run them with a high pass filter, which keeps the mids and highs nice and crisp.

I have never heard the db's but absolutly love my MOMOs. I have 6 interriors and no tower speakers. I do have a sub, but even without it, running 75 watts to each MOMO sounds as crisp as any set up I've ever heard! Nice full range sound with deep bass (no distortion), clear vocals, and screaming highs. I'll use these in any system I ever build again, car or boat!

Sorry I can't compare the two for you. The crossovers and seperate bass and tweeter terminals on the MOMOs do add a lot more flexability though. They can also handle a lot more power, I believe.

cmsk, are they a direct fit for the Kenwoods, what boat do you have?

08-28-2008, 10:14 PM
Yes. I have an '07 LSV. Changed them out without a problem. You do have to mount the crossovers somewhere though. I double sided taped them behind the area between the speakers. They fit tight in there so they aren't going anywhere. I can't really get a good picture of the x-overs, but here's the MOMOs...

Main difference between the 2 is looks and crossover's

The Momo's handle more power.....But if you aren't going to feed them alot of juice is the $100 worht it? Thats almost a tank of gas.

And if you run an amp to them you could use the high pass filter on the amp and not need the external crossover.

I think my info is correct on this (I've been kicking around the idea of Polk's in my 07 LSV). Now I think I need the Momo's because the grills will match the tower speaker setup I'm going to run

Hey is this Jeff HILL lol

I just put the DB's in my boat and they sound amazing. Friggin boat is louder then the two JL 7.7's on my tower. I need two more 7.7's =o)

Make sure you amp them though

08-30-2008, 06:21 PM
Yeah I'm that guy......

I can't remember what the grills look like on the DB's?

Sometimes you can pick the Polk's up for buy 1 get 1 1/2 off.

How much power you running to your interior speakers SanMar ?

Thats exactly what I did Buy one get one at 1/2 price Well kinda since I needed 3 pair I got screwed a lil

the four in the rear I am running at 2ohm which is 180W per channel (so probably 90 watts per speaker x 4) and the bow speaker are running at 4 ohm which is 90 watts per speaker. Though my gains are not all the way up. The boat way over powers the tower. My fade is almost all tower when Im pulling someone.

The clarion apx 490M is a workhorse

aren't the db's rated at 65 watts rms, will more more blow them or is it the opposite leass power and distotion will blow speakers.

?? for subs polk DB vs MOMO as well, 75 dollar difference and power handling and range slightly different. both marine certified, maybe just the looks. also any need for the dual voice coil if the amp is bridgeable?

sorry for all the ?'s

niether... i would put in wetsounds XS-650's! I have 6 in boat and love them.

09-08-2008, 11:49 AM
Those are probably great but out of the range of budget. I could get maybe three LOL;)

I just got an email from Crutchfield; Polk speakers are buy 1, get 1 half off. I think I got mine from eBay for cheaper still though.

JV, I love my DB's and really never even looked at the Momo's. But for a sub I lean towards the JL lin up. My understanding is the the dual voice coil makes the response time of the sub faster so it should be crisper, but not sure in a boat that this would make a difference.
