First impressions aren't everything once you hear these they won't dissapoint

Summary: I was bummed to find that these components did not come with an actual crossover as earlier iterations had. There is only an inline signal blocker for the tweeter. However my initial disappointment was quickly earased after install as these proved to be another quality product by JL audio.
JL doesn't put their name on crap. I have 85 watts RMS going to these

Summary: I doubt there is a speaker set right now in this price range that can match up with these. Yes, they are made in China..but they are still JL. JL doesn't put their name on crap. I have 85 watts RMS going to these, and they have held up over a month now being driven hard.
Summary: I was initially concerned about the lack of a true crossover, but after installing these in the rear deck of my 04 civic, I was well satisfied. If you're looking for bass, you need a true subwoofer, these 6.5s will not produce audible lows.

Summary: The tweeters are skittle harsh and the mids don't play as low as I'd like. Madisound.com has silver flutes which I will pair with vifa tweets with a crossover that will sound better, but these are not bad speakers by any means.
