Conclusion: Even with the horrible base stock stereo in my jeep, these speakers made a dramatic leap in sound quality. Then upgrading my head unit to a jvc and adding an Alpine amp (KTP-445U), these components sound great. I have had some very nice sounding systems in previous cars.
Summary: This pair of DB6501 replaced the rear stock speakers for my 2011 xB. With Kickers SS654 at front as the mid bass driver, overall performance is great. Component speakers with the crossovers can definitely improve sound in details. These speakers have adequate bass.
Great quality, great sound, just a great product!!!

Summary: Bought these speakers for an entire upgrade to my 05 Chevy extended cab Z71. Pushing them w/ 2 channels from a Kenwood X700x5 and they are simply amazing. Don't let the size fool you. They rock and have way more thump than you think. Quality and sound is A+ and just what I was looking for.
Summary: I bought these speakers for my 2007 NNBS Silverado because I heard the DXI series at a BB. Read the review online and many people rave but say you need to amp them. I have not amped them and let me say that they sound fantastic.
Pros: Great speakers! Cannot imagine getting better sound
Cons: Crossover was a bit tricky to install due to size but I made it work.
Summary: Great sounding speakers at a really reasonable price. Definitely will not disappoint so you can't make a bad decision with these. Does a great job at separating sound which factory speakers do an aweful job at. Overall great system.
Summary: I love these 6.5's. Once you supply them the power they want, the are beast! The tweeters on the other hand are killing me! It doesn't matter what volume level, or what gain setting on the amp I use. They are shrill/very bright.
Pros: The 6.5's are amazing for this price point when supplied the power they want.
Cons: For my ears...These tweeters suck!! I may just have to replace them.
