'08 Sierra Crew Cab - Replaced all 4 door speakers
ACE Classic Rock, Crutchfield
26 February 2014
Summary: Wow! I am happy I chose these speakers. The speakers sound great with the stock head unit. I replaced all 4 stock door speakers (front and back) with these 6.75" JL Audio TR650-CXi speakers. The whole project was simple. It might have taken an hour or a little more max.
Pros: Easy install Clean and crisp sound on the GM stock head unit All mounting hardware and wire harnesses included when ordering from Crutchfield
Summary: Saw some reviews how this didn't fit the rear of a 350z but I tried it anyhow and it lined up perfectly to factory holes on my 2003 non Bose/navigation Z. Many of the forums say it's better to not have rears but after putting these in my sound is much fuller across the spectrum.
Pros: Was I direct fit for me and MUCH better quality then the phoniex gold crap that a previous owner installed.
Cons: Just wish they had just a little bit lower range but I think a lot has to do with its size and being non component.
Summary: This was my first pair of JL Audio speakers. I have always used Pioneer, but none are available for my 01 Corvette. I am quite pleased with these; they are much better than the stock units. One would think that a car that came with a Bose system would not need anything - think again.
Pros: Sound quality, price, ease of installation.
Cons: Crutchfield installation instructions for my 2001 Corvette Coupe were unnecessarily complicated. They involved removing the roof panel (Targa top), the interior roof trim, and the pillar trim. Needless, as all that was needed was removal of the speaker grilles to gain access to the 4 screws secur...
Summary: I installed these in my Honda Ridgeline recently after upgrading my receiver a few months ago. Even without an additional power amplifier they offer a great improvement over the factory speakers. Much greater definition, solid bass and crisp highs. The install was fairly easy.
Summary: I replaced the stock speakers in my Toyota, and these sound great. I'm no expert, but I feel like the sound is much improved. The price is reasonable for this level of improvement. The only limitation is that my car isn't the quietest inside.
Pros: terrific sound at all levels of volume
Cons: extra install charge because wooden backings had to be created to fit in car
