Conclusion: Of all the 6x8 speakers i've had in my life...i would put these near the top...they sound better than the Kickers i have in my other vehicle and sound as good as the Alpines i had in another vehicle....for the money, these are GREAT!!!
Conclusion: Sound from these speakers are nice and clear. They have a nice mid range with decent bass but I got the speakers for the highs and mids. They are great for those. I have subs for the low end. I do turn off my subs some times and they do sound good as full range speakers also
Conclusion: The clearness of the voice in very good the bass is ok. Theses speakers are not really made for bass. Also, due to high bass the tweeter which is located on top of the cone, gets hit and makes a very nasty noise!!! I'm running a 4-channel amp with these speakers.
Conclusion: The overall tonality & voicing on these are reminiscent of the older series GTO which is a good thing! What's even better is the ability to orient the tweeter to aim towards the dome light or wherever, plus you can attenuate the tweeter via a switch on the housing.
Conclusion: Having had older model JBL GTO's, these have similar voicing.... good bottom end with deep kick, neutral midrange, but the poly/ titanium tweeters need taming a bit. This was without attenuating the tweeters via the switch so that's still an option.
Conclusion: These speakers have the best tweeters of any speaker I have ever bought and I have had kicker, alpine, polk, RF, clarion, pioneer, and more. Such a clear crisp high it gave me goose bumps the first time a turned them up.
