Summary: I installed this component set in my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, earlier this week. I was replacing the speakers that were standard equipment with the "base" 6 speaker set-up. Yes, as a number of folks have mentioned, the Focal tweeters are a little bright, but in many cases, you're comparing them to...
Pros: Good, well detailed sound. I've heard it takes speakers several hours to "break-in", so I'm anticipating even better sounds in the future. I probably would have given them 5 stars, if there was more install/technical information provided. Even though I'm pretty happy with their sound, I still am ...
Cons: They're a bit "pricey", and the instructions are vague and pretty much non-existent. The installation instructions, provided in the box, are little more than a few pictograms, demonstrating how to screw the speakers to the door panels in the car. I'd hate to be someone installing these speakers a...
Summary: Focal Sound is superb and really made a huge difference in a factory System. I could not have acomplished this without the support from Crutchfield as these component Speakers require proper installation of which Crutchfield guided me the whole way via multiple phone calls.
Pros: Excellent Sound,
Cons: Tweeters way bright, Gotta use the crossover.
Summary: I've had Polyglass and Access in other vehicles before so I knew going in how bright the tweeters were. However, before I always had the top of the line pioneer deck feeding mmats and JL amps so I could tone them down and loved them.
Pros: -The sound quality is to be expected, great
-The efficiency makes them stand out above all the other OEM speakers in your ride instantly.
Summary: I have the 15 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 8.4A stereo and 6 speakers (not Alpine). Everything sounded flat and at low volume muffled; adjusting the built in equalizer made little difference.. Installed these up front and WOW what a difference. Better base, mids and highs.
Pros: Good directions
Cons: Does not come with a free set of Titleist AP1 irons
Summary: I installed these into a stock alpine based system in my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. At first they sounded way to bright. I went back in and installed the supplied inline crossovers and things were way better.
Summary: Just installed these and very, very disappointed. Not sure if it's the integrated crossover or the woofer itself, but the sound is horrible. Worse then my stock speakers. The tweet on the other hand adds much to the factory, so the tweeters are great. Returning for something else.
Summary: Well, I was a bit worried at first spending the extra money on this set, but I have to say the quality is a nice improvement. I wanted a new set of speakers to replace the ones in my new Jeep GC as they would sound distorted at high volumes.
Pros: Crisp and Clear, Loud, Quality.
Cons: Tweeters are to bright with factory adjustment, Price.
Summary: Installed in the front doors of my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I was a little concerned the stock head unit wouldn't have enough power to make a difference over stock speakers. The difference was huge!
Summary: I installed these in a 2014 Durango (minor filing needed behind tweeter, then front fits A-pillar perfectly). These Focal speakers are a cut above most other brands I have used (Alpine Type-R, Infinity Reference, Polk db, JBL GTO, JL C2). The tweeters are amazing with no harshness at all.
Pros: Excellent sound quality. Great fit in the Durango (same A-pillar as Grand Cherokee).
