Summary: I was looking to get better sound out of my stock head unit in my '12 F150 (base stereo with tweeters in the "A" pillar) so I picked up a set of these for the front door. These speakers were a huge improvement over the stock ones. They produce detail in music I have never heard before. I love contemporary jazz and these speakers added tons of detail and a very noticeable kick of bass to the music.
Summary: I wanted to replace the front speakers with something better than the paper stock speakers. What a great upgrade, even with the stock head unit. Speakers are crisp and clear. Don't expect super bass. The speaker is just to small for that, however, the bass tones are rich and clear. They are perfect for a smaller car like the fussion. They fit right into the existing door speaker openings. Took longer to get the door panel off than it did to replace the speaker.
Summary: I am thrilled with these speakers. They are replacing those supplied by the factory so they were bound to be better. There are instruments and words that I couldn't even hear before but now it is as clear as can be. They also fit right into my PT Cruiser, replacing the others.
Big JL sound without the big money, JL AUDIO C2-570x 2-Way coaxials ROCK!!!

Summary: WOW!!! I was not sure that 5x7 could do what I needed it too. But they really do sound great!!! For an inexpensive way to improve for factory sound systems mid bass and high range performance, this is your ticket. I got mine on a JL AUDIO 300/4 and these things impress me everyday!!!
Summary: I bought these speakers to replace the front door speakers for my 2013 Mustang GT w/out the Shaker system. I was very disappointed in the factory sound system that this car had and upgrading the speakers was a no brainer! I was looking for a speaker with some deeper bass and clearer, crisper sound, and after lots of research and reading customer reviews, I decided to go with these speakers from JL.
Pros: Versus the factory speakers: I certainly feel that these speakers produce better quality, crisper sound with a touch more bass than the factory speakers. The lows are a bit deeper and the voice quality is spot on. Now the lyrics of the songs are clearer and not drowned out by the music.
Cons: There is not much I can say bad about these speakers other than the bass was not as deep as I was hoping for as a direct factory replacement without an amplifier powering them. Even though I wasn't expecting subwoofer type bass output, I found that the factory amp just isn't powerful enough.
Summary: I purchased these for my F150 after encountering an odd issue where the passenger door speaker would intermittently sound blown. Rather than trying to deal with the dealership, I decided to just go ahead and upgrade. Very happy I did, as these sound much better than the stock speakers ever did.
