! It blows old 007's mind. I've purchased from Crutchfield several times. Naturally, one would think Klipsch has the advantage because of their head start. In an actual listening room, you'd find that some speakers play louder than others when fed the same amount of power. Their job is to ask you about your setup and help you choose the speakers that best meet your needs. To meet these goals, Polk developed some noteworthy technologies: Dynamic Balance — Polk conducted a lot of research into how different raw materials resonate. But in the end it worked out, you'll see why later. I've made many purchases & never been disappointed.
However, I feel the AMP has a lot to do with how the speakers sound. I hope you find the information above helpful. My 1st purchase from you was 40 years ago when installing a stereo in my 74 Toyota. In the Signature Series the port fires downward, which gives you more flexibility with regard to placement. The Reference and Reference Premiere series share a strong family resemblance. At the same volume setting, the Klipsch speakers played a little louder than the Polks, though not by as much as most of the advisors expected. Klipsch has been around since the 40's while Bose has been around since the 60's. There are two midrange/tweeter panels in each L800. Calls may be recorded for training and quality control purposes.
