We listen in our lab
Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
We at Crutchfield listen to a lot of different car speaker brands so we can provide solutions for our customers that will work well with the particular kinds of music they like to listen to.
Recently, we gathered members of the Crutchfield car A/V writing team into our Crutchfield Labs car listening room for some critical listening of four of our most popular car speaker families. We wanted to hear the differences ourselves so we could describe to you how they sound.
Alpine Type-S — the all-around classic
Infinity Reference and Reference X — smooth from top to bottom
Polk Audio DXi — great with vocals
Rockford Fosgate Punch — when you like it loud
