Summary: This is a nice speaker well built. The sound is comparable to mb quart. These are marine speakers so I expected the sound the to be high and it is, but the clarity should be a little clearer for the price. But even with that said I still think there a good deal, and if they can take the beating they will get in the boat I will recommend them. Only time will tell.
Pros: seem to be built well nice one piece design with the built in crossovers
Cons: The screws need to be longer ,boat speakers are mounted with backing plates.
Summary: Hand's down these will finally be the last speakers I install in my boat. After trying about 5 pairs over the years, these have the power capacity and quality to provide lasting high levels of output for extended periods of time. On a boat it's loud at speed and these are the only speakers that can do the job without distortion (the enemy). I have no complaints or improvements... these are flawless... really!!
