Conclusion: Pretty good speaker for the price. The best part about these is the fact they are convertible. I have found when you really start driving them the tweeters start to break up. But possibly I don't have enough power going to them. I run a kicker 1000.5 and use all five channels.

Summary: Been there done that with audio electronics, my son blew the cheaper speakers, I had, won't name them. I have a 2005 GMC Extended cab truck, it had the bose system before I replaced the cheap factory crap. So here's the scoop, these JL Audio C3-650 are not the most expensive or best on the market but these bad boys hold there own. I've been researching replacement speakers for over a month, from Hertz to tin buck two.
Summary: Just hooked these up with a Alpine HU and a Fosgate amp and they sound amazing... they have a clean smooth, rich, bassy sound to them, just enough highs to sound great! I have C3-600's in the front doors that sound about the same, together with a JL Audio bass and they create a music experience.. I've done very little adjusting with the head unit EQ and I've just been amazed,, JL Audio makes some incredible speakers.. I can't say enough about them..
Pros: Good rich clean sound.. They just sound great..
Summary: I had these installed my a custom shop here in town. Soundsational does excellent work anyone in the Indianapolis area. One of the component sets blew the woofer because i had them running off of the head unit power. Crutchfield immediately sent out a replacement to swap them out, great customer service! I paired these with a JL audio XD600/6 and ran 4 channels to these and the other 2 to the rear speakers. Wow, what a difference.
Conclusion: I definitely recommend these speakers. I have used less expensive component speakers in the past and these are far superior. Solid construction and outstanding sound. The high frequency level adjustment selection is easy to move and lets you tune the highs without equalization on the input to the amp. I have the JL Audio 300/4v2 driving these which helps the sound, but overall they handle the power well.
