Conclusion: Put these in the rear fill of my 2004 Evo 8. They are great with the rear channels of a JL audio 500/5 going to them! Sonic ships way fast. Great deal. Tweeters have push button +/- 3db on them...so they are super easy to set up. System rocks harder than ever.
Conclusion: I have 4 of the 6-1/2" Infinity REF-6502ix speakers in my 98 Dodge Dakota. They do a great job in my opinion of projecting both high and low notes. I listen to Hip Hop/R&B music with a lot of bass. These speakers hold up to a lot of bass even with the music turned up loud. However I have found that the speakers do distort after listen to music loudly with a lot of bass after a prolonged amount of time.
OK, but if you want good sound go for the component speakers

Summary: I have these in the back and the Infinity component speakers in front (REF-6500cx). By comparison these 2-way speakers sound bad. With the component speakers you get a base, with these you get a midrange. Unless you have a base to supliment these, they sound tinny.
Summary: One factor in my purchase was the excellent customer service I received when I had an issue with a wiring harness I purchased from Crutchfield. These speakers were connected to a JVC KW-HDR81BT head unit and a factory installed amp. Installation was a snap (front door installation), thanks to the Crutchfield Advisor information that matches products with your automobile model. The free wiring harness saved several minutes and was one less thing to screw up.
Pros: - Very crisp in the mid and hi range. - Satisfactory bass performance. - Installation was a breeze. Plenty of extra screws and clips if you need them. - The included stick on badges were a nice touch when using existing door panel grills.
Cons: - Manufacturers should consider offering enclosures with the speakers.
Summary: Never even got to hear the speakers because they would not fit into the kick panels of my classic car without having to cut structural metal to install them, which was a bummer. The car is a convertible, so they won't do any good by installig them in the back seat. I wouldn't be able to hear them anyway.
Pros: Supposed to be a great sounding speaker. Never heard them...
Cons: Won't fit in a 1970 Olds Convertible without structural changes.
Conclusion: I needed a speaker with a tweeter that can pivot. Also I like to listen to music without hearing distortion, this speaker is perfect. If you like to listen to rock, classical songs with vocals this is the perfect speakers. These speakers play very accurately and that is important to me. I highly recommend them to anyone who like audiophile grade in the car.
