Conclusion: I have worked with Rockford Fosgate equipment before. It is really top notch stuff. When I saw that these speakers were listed for the price, I couldn't stop myself from buying them. The Rockford equipment I've worked with before has amazing sound, great quality, very durable, and has great range. These speakers are no different. They have a range that's a bit on the high side compared to my stock speakers.
Conclusion: I installed them in a 2001 Honda CR-V. Had to do a little work to install them but worth it. These speakers sounds great with a stock head unit in this car. I put them front and rear of this car and would do it again. The price on the speakers are a great value.
Conclusion: after a couple of months waiting to get a new set of speakers to go in the rear doors of my truck these Rockford fosgate R1s match the set up front and fill the cab with rich clear highs and mids but not the low end part but that's what subwoofers are for
Summary: 100%awesome.but highly recommended you run them with off an amp with subs to really experience the full impact of these speakers.they have excellent highs but no lows.but mixed with subs...these speakers are.."Killers"!!
Conclusion: I was looking for replacement front speakers for my car and got these because of the price. Had them installed and they exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Rockford if you're on a budget and want a good quality speaker.
