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).
Summary: I bought 2 sets of these speakers. I installed it at first only on drivers side. Moved fader just to the front speakers. This way I tested difference between OEM speaker (right side) and Focal by switching balance left and right. First impression was Wow!, what a difference!
Summary: Overall a great speaker. If you have a toyota with stock 6x9 speakers in the front, consider these. Whatever you do, DO NOT use the junk flat speaker adapters that Crutchfield and others try to provide. This will rob you of speaker depth, bass response, mid-bass and clarity.
Pros: Crystal clear speakers, great bass, great tweeters. Would work well even with aftermarket head unit power and really will with 50 watts and up. I would put the bass of these speakers over any 6.5" in this price range, and the mid-range clarity is excellent as long as you're not trying to have a f...
Cons: Ran out of words available to me above. The only real con is for me at least is I wish they would handle a little more power. But this is only a con to me, I wanted really really loud speakers that could take up to 200 watts each. For most everyone out there these are fantastic and you won't find...
Summary: Installed in front doors of a 2005 Toyota 4-Runner (non-JBL). Running off a Pioneer AVH-P3100DVD Head Unit (4 x 14w RMS). Still running stock rear door speakers. No amp. Had custom brackets fabricated for the 6x9 with foam rims to align with the stock foam on the door panel.
Pros: ... Kenwood, Pioneer coax 6x9s and these were in another league. Hertz was similar, but had no component offering in 6x9. I refused to go with a 6.5" component because the 6x9 woofer just dominates the 6.5" in mid to mid-low output. The Pros: Crystal Clear, Highly Sensitive, Runs Great with Head ...
Cons: Not really a con but likely requires amplification to open up the 10k Hz+ ranges at lower volumes. Again, not really a con and is solved with EQ and amplification - mid range seems to be the power house on the woofers.
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: 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.
