Conclusion: Great sound if connected with the right amp, and they looked very solid. Push them to the max you might get distortion but if you get the right settings will get great sound quality and comparable with many high end sound systems that come in some cars as standard.
Conclusion: I replaced stock installed speakers in the doors and rear deck with the P8862 pairs, hoping for the best (small volumes, not sealed, not an ideal install to optimize bass response). I crossed them over to the stock tweeters up on the front dash at 1200 Hz and what a pleasant surprise. I got outstanding clear bass response and much better stereo imaging than the stock install. I'm very pleased with the choice - on SALE. Great value.!!
Summary: I purchased these JBL 6x8 speakers for my 2004 Mustang Cobra. They are a direct replacement for the stock speakers, and fit the opening perfectly.Although thier small size, they have a really rich sound and can handle a good bit of power. I have replaced all speakers and have JBL amps as well. You can't beat the quality!
Conclusion: These are installed in the back of my '09 Mustang in lieu of adding a sub and an amp because I wanted to keep my trunk space this time around. In front are Infinity Kappas to handle the high frequencies. These JBL's produce lower and better bass than the Kappas as expected and give my system enough oomph to forgo the sub without loosing some punch. They also seem to produce some nicer and louder mids than the Infinities.
Conclusion: Get these speakers but don't push them with radio, get a nice 4 channel amp and they will sound much better. I have four of them in my wife's Tribute and she blast the system they sounded good with the Pioneer AVH-P3100 but they sound way better with the Kenwood KAC-6404. Not to mention i got them for a great "MAKE AN OFFER" price.
Conclusion: I installed these in my '93 Explorer (door speakers) They fit nicely, and have impressive bass response and power handling. However, they seem to have a bit of a response peak in the upper midrange around 3 or 4 khz, resulting in premature listener fatigue at higher volume levels. I realize some of this may be attributed to my car's acoustics, but I expected better from JBL.
