Conclusion: I would most definitely recommend these speakers for anyone looking to upgrade from stock. I won't say if they are better than other speakers, because I don't know that for sure. But, what I can say is that they sound fantastic when paired with the JVC KD-R750 head unit.
Summary: Speakers sound great matched up w/ a JVC head unit and crossed over. Mids and highs sound great; can't comment on bass response as all mine comes out of the sub. Fit was not exact; even w/ the bracket.
Pros: Price, sound, mids and highs
Cons: Fitment not exact, even w/ included bracket for Nissan Xterra rear speakers.
Summary: Great set of speakers. I drive a late 80's Land Cruiser and trusted Crutchfield's expertise that these would indeed fit my car with zero modification required. They did indeed. Installation was extremely easy, and this was my first time doing any sort of speaker installation.
Pros: Easy installation (zero modification required), Great Sound.
