Is it worth spending the extra $200 and getting these polk instead of getting the Martin Logan MT-1 for $170 ? Both deals are at frys, im wondering if there will be THAT noticable of a difference between them.

If you are a Polk fan, then the answer is yes. > The difference in
the sound will be big.

I have a $200 pair of polk 6.5's in my car that sound great, but the highs are a little bright. I have not listened to any home theater equipment from polk.

I didn't find the RTI bookshelves I mentioned in your other thread to be bright, but then again I'm a Klipsch fan, so what do I know.

I wouldn't draw any conclusions about these based on a car audio system, even from the same manufacturer. Your best bet would be to listen to them for yourself before buying if you can. Also. your receiver has a speaker calibration system that will smooth out frequency response anomalies if they exist.

Bottom line you may like them or not, you won't know until you hear them. Based on my experience I think it's unlikely you'd find them objectionable.

You're comparing tower speakers to little satellites. There's going to be a HUGE difference between to the two. Get the Polks.

I got a pair of Infinity P363s not long ago from Frys but I'm thinking of exchanging them for the RTi8s. Not sure if the sound difference would be worth the hassle though to be honest...

Take some music with you and listen in the store. They usually have both the P363 and Rti8 in the same room.
