Conclusion: I though the JBL factory system was pretty good , after replacing to these speakers I couldn't believe the difference , clear and crisp sound from theses JBL 's, the low frequency is amazing ! Just needs adaptor plates for the rear deck .
Excerpt: I have used Jbl for over 20 years absolutely the the best speaker in the world in theater's and car's you can't go wrong with Jbl and price is just right I love the crisp clean no distortion sound of these and they pair just right with GTO638 s I just put in the front now I just need an amp witch will also be JBL
Conclusion: I installed these into the front and rear doors of my 2012 Ram 1500. These speakers fit perfect, but one hole will not line up with the speaker and will need to be drilled for the 4th screw to fit. I ordered the speaker connectors to fit the factory harness from crutchfield, and about 6 inches of wire is needed in addition to the aftermarket harness for the front speakers.
Conclusion: I wish I had researched these before I installed the 6.5 Alpine Type R in the rear!! They sound great with better bass response. The only con is the treble is a little "tinny" with the blocker set. Easy fix though, just push a little button. If you want better than factory sound for less then look no further.
Conclusion: This is one of the two pairs of JBL speakers I ordered (the other being the GTO528) for a friend. Both pairs got mounted inside a truck. Although I'm not a big fan of oval shaped speakers due to nonlinear distortions this one works pretty well for the price. The 0 dB /- 3dB switch for the tweeter it's nonsense, I don't see any reason for that since you'll equalize the sound from the amp/cd/tuner/mp3 player.
Nice speaker with factory radio, Better with a amp.

Conclusion: I bought these JBL speakers to replace my cheap door Factory speakers in my 2014 Nissan Frontier. Although the front factory speakers are a separate woofer/ tweeter in the dash setup, these 3 way JBL in my door panels fill the sound waves just fine. Great clean high notes, bass is just ok when used with the factory radio. I added a amp to the factory radio and thats where the JBL'S came to life. So overall i would say, Add a amp and you will be much happier.
