Summary: solid little speaker, sounds great. the clarity is exceptional. I have a dodge ram and this speaker fit in the 5.25 hole better than jl's 5.25," oem speaker had wing tabs on it". i didn't have to drill or cut anything. i'm sure it can handle any decks full range power, but mine is hooked up to a jl 300/4 with the high pass filter on. if you need more than that you either have to go bigger or spend a lot more, probably both.
Summary: Over all fairly good speakers. I'm a bit of an audio snob and I have other vehicles with much higher end speakers so the best I can get is 3 stars for sound. First couple hours of listening they were a little flat sounding but they woke up as they broke in especially the mid-bass. My only real beef with these speakers is at this price they should be made in the US and sound a bit smoother.
Pros: Overall nice crisp mid and treble. Easy to install. Came with all hardware.
Summary: I replaced the head unit and speakers on my JBL Equiped 2002 Acura MDX The sound is fantastic, very clean and crisp, incredible detail, but not overly bright or brassy when you play something very precise and detailed like Dire Straits Love over Gold or Brothers in arms the subtle details that comes through are amazing.
Pros: Incredible detail, yet warm sound
Cons: It now points out the fact I need to get a REAL amp and find a way to incorporate my A pillar tweeters (at higher volumes the bass gets slightly muddy - IN MY CURRENT CONFIGURATION they cost $ 90.00 a peice (still not a bad price for this quality)
Summary: Very good speaker. I bought it to put into the front doors of a 1994 Honda Accord. It fits if you don't keep the enclosure that is present with the factory speakers there...and if you drill two more holes (per side). I didn't need to use the grilles that came with the speakers, but that's because the Accord already had door panel grilles.
Conclusion: These are decent sounding speakers. The highs are clean. The mids are pretty good too. The mid-bass is ok. The bass response, is expected, isn't there (if you want good bass, buy expensive, high quality speakers... if you want good and deep bass, buy a sub). Overall: I recommend these speakers. They are good enough sound quality for the price range.
Summary: These speakers fit like a dream in my 2011 Chevy Express van (along with the Metra 82-3048 brackets). After going through some issues with the factory speakers and brackets, I finally am enjoying my new sounds. Love the sound quality you get from these JL's!!
Summary: these are great speakers for the money couldn't be happier. have used these speakers for a while now and have had no problems with them at all. have found the same speakers for a lot more at local shops.
