Seemed to blow kinda easily, considering they were hooked to the factory stereo
7 May 2014
Summary: These got scratchy very quickly, in a 2000 beetle with the factory radio. Maybe my son played them very loudly and maybe the factory radio generated speaker killing distortion if not loads of power. They were properly installed and seemed like quality speakers.
Summary: These speakers have a 6.5 inch frame but the speaker is more like 5 inch. The grille does not stay on the speaker. These speakers have great highs but very poor bass. My partially blown factory speakers have way more bass. I kept them only because my factory speakers rattle now. I would not recommend them.
Summary: I have installed these speakers along with a JVC digital radio in our boat. Nice lows and mids, highs, not bad but remember, this is a boat install, completely different acoustics than a car. I'm buying a second pair as soon as I pull the boat out of storage and put in in the water to see how the speakers did over the winter. I'll update when I do.
Summary: It is rare in life, yet, you get more than you pay for here. This product is solid. Sure you can do a lot better. If you are into competition or braging rights, this might not be your best choice. Yet if you need to upgrade from stock. These will do it for you.
