Conclusion: Had these installed on my son's Toyota 4-Runner as a birthday gift along with the SUV itself. My son was so ecstatic about the sounds coming from these speakers. His friends are so impressed, they say it's the best sounding system in the whole school. Thanks for this great product.
Conclusion: I ordered the speakers to go with my Kenwood double din head unit in my work truck. I was pleased with initial quality and have enjoyed great sound from them these past 6 months. I would not hesitate to recommend these speakers. They are a solid value.
Conclusion: I got 2 of these not even 6 months ago to put one set in every door, and the back two went out three days after i put them in, i have been doin car audio for years and i have never had as much trouble with a speaker before. I had them under powered below RMS and never even maxed them out. Just the other day the front two went out, but in both occasions the tweeters still work.
Conclusion: I Love these speakers. Installed in my Mazda Protege 5. I have gone from stock 6X8 to Polk DX, to Infinity Reference, to Alpine type-R, to these. If you are considering components, Do it! This is an excellent choice with somewhat subdued highs and plenty of midbass. These are punchy and not too bright. I no longer use my 6" rear door polks for "fill". These are driven by 75watts per channel crossed over at 85HZ from my Eclipse amp and a Kenwood HU.
Conclusion: I bought these for the front doors of my 02 silverado ext cab truck. They blow away the factory speakers... but that is a given! They have clear and punchy bass/mid bass that you can feel. The highs sound good as well. I do notice a slight lack of upper mid sounds and it can sound on the "tinny" side in those frequencies on some songs. Nothing major and shouldn't keep you from buying these because they are great speakers.
Conclusion: I've owned as well as listened to a lot of component sets over the years, I was running the Pioneer D series before I put these in and was about to purchase the Hertz high energy series's when I stumbled on these. For the price Sonic has them and the fact they sound as good as the Hertz can't beat them they are so detailed and clean the mids and highs are perfect ...
