Summary: The sound is clear but the base is absent. These speakers were purchased to replace a set of 8" round speakers with center tweeter. Initial sound quailty is good, but there is a marker loss of bass in the sound system. I'm hoping that when they are used for awhile, they will loosen up and produce more bass response.
Summary: Good replacement speakers for my 98 Volvo V70 XC AWD. A whole lot better than stock speakers. Got decent bass, but, if you want thumping bass, get a seperate sub-woofer, as I plan to do in the near future. Overall, I am very satisfied. Thanks Crutchfield!!
