Polk Audio db461p
Released March, 2007
The Pros:Easy to install in a wide variety of vehicles. Don't distort at high volumes. Crisp and clear, make the most of whatever the head unit sends them.
The Cons:Instructions are fairly sparse, manual doesn't give many specifics. Need a subwoofer for the low end, severely drops off in the bass range.

In addition, unlike its predecessors, the db461p mounts its liquid-cooled .75” silk/polymer dome tweeter apart from the woofer, thereby allowing improved performance from separate components lodged in a single speaker. In addition, the Audio db461p relies on a plate-style design that is cited as making installation into factory spaces easier. The Polk Audio db461p also features high and low pass crossover filters that delivery accurate midrange and glare-free highs, low-mass 2-layer 25mm Kapton voice coils, and a pole plate heat sink that promotes more thorough head dissipation.

don't distort at high volumes
crisp and clear, make the most of whatever the head unit sends them
high peak handling keeps them from blowing out even when higher end head units are turned way up
mids and highs are very strong and well-balanced, don't compete with each other
good impedance setting to ensure that there isn't any interference
instructions are fairly sparse, manual doesn't give many specifics
need a subwoofer for the low end, severely drops off in the bass range
