Conclusion: I love the midrange and directional tweeters on these. I put 4 of these in a 2010 ford f150 fx4 super crew. It was an upgrade of sound overall really hear all the highs and midrange off of factory head unit.
Summary: I have put these speakers in a 95 Mustang, 99 Ranger Extended cab, and now a 98 F150 Extended cab. I purchased all from Crutchfield. If you like your tweeters the +3db setting should be depressed to take advantage. It really brightens the sound and that is something I like.
Pros: With the exception of the Ranger They all sound incredibly better than the stock speakers. They were easy to install and the hardware sent with them connected perfectly. The install instructions are fairly easy to follow and you do not have to drill any holes or make any modifications.
Cons: The only problem with the Ranger was with the rear speakers and that was not the fault of Crutchfield. They really rattled the rear doors. I should have purchased the recommended boxes or inserts to dampen the spaces. I know that will make the bass not have as much punch but would probably stop t...
Summary: I purchased these speakers for installation in the doors and rear deck of my 2014 Ford Mustang. The speaker wire harnesses provided by Crutchfield were a perfect match, and the Master Sheet instructions were informative. Installation in the doors was easy.
Summary: These aren't going to thump your crappy sub-compact car down the street, but they will give you a very broad spectrum of accurate and pleasing audio. I'm a recording engineer by trade and these are as good as you can get unless you're willing to use an amp and spend a lot more $$$ per speaker.
Pros: Accurate, non fatiguing, smooth
Cons: For BEST results, they really should be amped. Not bad at all from factory deck/amp though!
Summary: I have read the other reviews and I just don't understand them. The factory speakers on my 2010 F150 sounded much better than these. I am using the stock Sync head unit and these speakers just sound horrible.
Pros: None. Zero.
Cons: Awful sound. Muddy bass competing with flat highs. Just absolutely the worst sounding speakers.
