Summary: I've had good enough luck with JL Audio products over the years. Facing a very limited space in a 1971 Alfa Romeo Montreal, I decided to try some Versapods and 4" speakers. There were very few 4" speakers offered with an included grille, as most are intended to replace OE units in their existing...
Pros: Small size. Included grille
Cons: Limited range - but that's to be expected from a 4" speaker.
Summary: Of course I found the best deal on Ebay. These speakers sound really clear but hey they are JL right. I tried different speakers for my motorcycle tank bag project. These had the best sound after I soldered on some 220 uf caps to cut some of the bass. The tweeter is caped from the factory .
Summary: I bought 1 of these to replace the 3.5" Infinity Reference in my dash slot. I had to modify the opening a bit to fit the speaker in but there is a huge sound difference. I had to install a 100uF capacitor on the Infinity to keep the lower midrange from clipping the speaker out at high volumes.
Summary: ran these for about 1 1/2 to 2yrs. i hated them ever since i got them but was never a big priority to send them back, i wish i had. i just faded them down and relied on the other speakers, i couldnt turn them up, even a little without terrible sound.
Summary: Put these in the rear doors for my extended cab Chevy Truck. They sounded good, but not quite as good as the front 6.5's in the same model. Still a much needed improvement over the rattling stock speakers. Great price, great product, and great service! Thanks Crutchfield and JL Audio!
Summary: I opted out of the 4x6 in the dash and decided to use the TR400-CXi w/the adapters in my '90 Chevy p/u. Had to cut out the factory grills for the tweeters to stick thru and it's well worth it. Very clean/accurate.
Conclusion: We installed one of these in a 1980 camaro z28 and it added great, clear sound. It, along with two rear-deck mount 6x9's are being driven by a 350/4 JL Audio amp. I would suggest not only this speaker, but this entire JL Audio line to anyone... Happy Customers!!!!
Summary: i had a great experience with these speakers, they produce some nice smooth his and mids, not much in the bass department...but honestly would you really expect any? i have these paired with JL TR600-CXi 6-1/2 and its a great combo, they play great at all volumes
