Underwhelming.

brandon, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying this is the cheapest pair of speakers I've ever bought. My most recent setups had Eclipse, MB Quart, and Boston components. These we're for my wifes Rogue. At moderate volumes, I was actually quite impressed by the clarity of these speakers. But as soon as I tried to push them, I would hear a horrible scratching from the tweeter at certain frequencies. Mind you, I'm talking volume levels to cover wind noise from having the windows down.
  • Pros: Good value, clean highs at moderate volume. Bass extended surprisingly low.
  • Cons: Noticable distortion at higher volumes. Push them with an amp or keep the volume down.

  • Summary: I installed these in the front doors of my 2012 Suzuki equator. I went with these per Crutchfield's recommendation and am very happy with them. Compared to the factory speakers these rock! Give them about a week and a half break in period and they really come to life. Thanks Crutchfield!
  • Pros: Price, quality, richness of sound after break in.
  • Cons: None.

Good speakers for the price

Mathetes, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I was looking for something to replace a blown speaker in the driver-side door of my 2006 Nissan Pathfinder. I replaced the stock CD/stereo a few months ago, and with "bass boost" I accidentally blew the speaker out. The online help agent was able to set me up with this pair of speakers, based on my requirements: not too expensive, decent sound, and an easy fit (with no special mounting brackets) for my car.
  • Pros: The sound is pretty good, and the price is pretty good, too. Also, the instructions were helpful in getting the interior panels off to replace the speakers.
  • Cons: A slight fitting problem. I did not use the mounting screws that were used with the stock speakers. I found some screws I had laying around that worked, and only used 3 of them per each speaker as the holes did not line up perfectly.

Rockford Fosgate Prime R169X2

  • Summary: I would have given it 5 if the installation went easier. Mounting hole didn't line up and new speakers where taller than originals. There should be some clarification in the instruction on how to modify. I was under the impression that the would fit without modifications. That said they sound great and the modifications weren't exceptionally difficult.
  • Pros: Speakers sound great
  • Cons: Installation was more difficult than expected do to mounting holes not lining up. Also the speakers are taller than original forcing some modification.

Awesome sound, reference quality

  • Summary: I had a hard time deciding what to get when I went to Crutchfield store. I tried several different configurations but when I heard the Rockford Fosgate Prime R169X2 I knew. These speakers sound very realistic; but sound quality is very subjective You can find yourself hating these speakers if you only want bass response.
  • Pros: Warm sound
  • Cons: None. I love them!
