Conclusion: These handle bass really well and a nice smooth high end that doesn't get lost in the mix. I am currently running them off the head unit and I am very happy with the performance. I only imagine I will like them more once I get the amp installed.
Conclusion: I bought these speakers to replace my factory speakers and I tell you what I wish I would have done it years ago they are great I have a factory player yet but the sound quality is intense good solid base and crisp clean highs I would definitely recommend especially for the great price
Conclusion: I put 2 of these in each of the doors in my Civic Coupe custom fiberglassed up. Got them about fully powered @ 150rms per door. No joke, not only do they play everything beautifully, they shake my windows and doors just from that amped up power. Full-range great quality, love every bit.
Summary: Great x9's. You really cant beat the price! Rockford for life! This is my first set of Rockford speakers and they blew me away! I run them at full tilt all the time without clipping and they handle it sooo well!
Summary: I installed these today in my 1998 Grand Prix and when I turned the radio on (installed a new JVC radio a few days ago), I was amazed by the sound. They have lots of bass (especially for not even having an amp) and sound much more clear than the factory ones did.
Pros: Bass is good, clear sound, giant magnet on back
Cons: Speaker installation holes didn't quite match up with the Pontiac mounting brackets, but just enough so that I could get them installed and sounding great.
