Conclusion: As expected, the engineers at JBL have produced a very natural sounding speaker. These speakers have a balanced natural sound to them. When driven by a quality head unit and amp, these speakers can be driven hard while maintaining their sound integrity. The balanced design allows the listener to fine tune or tailor the sound to his or her preference. JBL produces some of the best drivers and speakers for live performance venues.
Conclusion: Listed as a 6 x 8 speakers, but they truly are a 5 x 7 that fits original mounts. These speakers provide great bass response, the built in cross-overs and the adjustable tweeters make directing your sound correctly a breeze. I use a aftermarket Alpine with a 45 watt amp with Infinity 5 x 7 front and these GTO-8628 in the rear. Sonic's price made these speakers a no brainer.
Conclusion: for the price i couldnt beat it. decent bass responsce, mids were alittle muddy at high volumes, as with highs. a good head unit and amp should fix that hopefully. overall im happy with them, but i would get the 4 0r 5 way pioneers if i had to order again. id say middle of the road and price point for most, not awsome, deffinatly not bad.
Conclusion: these are very accurate speakers (as mentioned above)... Woofer Review: the bass response is tight...no distortion to speak of...at full volume with the bass i get punchy, tight sounds that really give the music more of home stereo feel (which is what i want)...the vocals are very strong and don't get distorted at high levels... Tweeter Review: The way that the tweeters are designed is very practical..
