Excerpt: Absolutely nothing comes close to these speakers. Clean, clear, power; at any volume. Once you hear these speakers, you can never go back to any thing else. Worth every penny!!!!!!!!! Hears a rumor that they would be discontinued. That would be tragic!
Conclusion: WOW super clear and powerful no distortion at super high listening levels, beautiful imaging, had Focal Utopia 3-ways and these blew them away! Great high end speakers and crossover, true audiophile component set. Use a pioneer DEH-80PRS head unit with these and they sound amazing.

Conclusion: Put these speakers in the front of my GMC Sierra and they kick ass! A little pricey and only used the actually speakers so I have lots of accessories left over. Just had my system tuned up and now that they are broken in I can really crank my stereo up. They sound great loud and I love it loud.
Conclusion: This is a Professional Speaker. Meaning its sounds like a pair of studio monitors. They are without a doubt the best sounding speakers you can get at this price. They are very revealing and you will hear everything, including all the crappy recordings and crappy mp3's.
Conclusion: Awesome sound and Power handling , no distortion even with high Volume . Driver/Midrange could and should produce a little more bass . Tweeters are almost eardrum piercing . Speakers are very heavy , make sure they are properly secured inside doors .
Conclusion: Absolutely the best sonic quality of any 6-1/2" component set I've ever owned... and I've owned many brands and models. JBL should consider un-discontinuing this product... but perhaps with less functionally-extraneous packaging to reduce the cost. a bit.
Conclusion: I've had a lot of different component sets and some costing 3-4 times these JBL's but these are simply the best set of 6 1/2's made!! JBL/Harmon knows how to build audio equipment that is second to none.

Conclusion: ... then these speakers are the ones for you. Amazing, crisp sound quality. Best I've ever heard. I listen mostly to trance - and these speakers do this particular style of music such incredible justice! The design stays true to JBL's continuing mission of providing workmanship second to none.
