Conclusion: I purchased these speakers for a fair price. Their overall specs seemed good of power ratings. I have had them in my front doors for about a month. They do ok running highs and since installing my sub and taking bass out of them I'm a bit more pleased.
Summary: The quality of materials seem good and on par for speakers in this price range. The sound is good pushed by my Kenwood deck at 20 watts RMS, but at the mfr power rating they will not reach their potential without an amp, which I plan to do in the second phase of building my system.
Pros: Solid build quality and materials for the price
Good sound with 20 watts RMS
2 yr warranty
Freebies for easier install
Chatting with techs
Cons: None. Was a very good experience and received great products.
Conclusion: This is my first experience with Kenwood and I couldn't be more satisfied. The range is awesome, much better than my stock, and the instructions made it easy to install. Minor altercations were needed though. Other than that, very satisfied. Sonic had a helluva deal on them as well.
