Summary: One of the factory mids in my 04 Explorer (Eddie Bauer) went out, so I figured I would replace all 4 door speakers the same day. I initially bought 4 of these, installed the front set no problem (Crutchfield says they won't fit up front but they did fit in my rig).
Pros: Clean, loud audio. Really nice highs (symbols etc..) Good lows (would not try to push them below 80 Hz)
Summary: This is the second set of fosgate T1682 that I have bought. They are super clean sounding an have a lot of bass for being a small speaker. I have em in a extended cab ford ranger and they fit nice all the way around.
Conclusion: These speakers DO NOT fit a 2003 expedition without modifying the door panel cut outs. It says in the description they fit the front and back doors but I just installed 4 of them and had to make cut outs in the doors to except the weird flange on 2 of the mounting holes on each speaker.
Conclusion: I have four of these ran off a Hifonics Brutus 640.4 and they sound great. They are clear and very powerful. I wish they had a crossover though. And their magnets are huge. Make sure they will fit first. And the tweeter is a bit fragile. Other then that, love em.
Summary: These speakers have a great crisp, clear sound. After installing two speakers, I bought two more to replace all the speakers in my mustang with the rockford set. They put the stock mach sound system to shame.
Conclusion: Pros: -Very powerful speakers -Full range, people ask if I have a sub (I don't yet) -Very Clear across all frequencies. Cons: Tweeter looks awesome and allows more cone area, but they are very flimsy and die easy, I've had one go out completely on me and one that is distorting at higher volumes.

Conclusion: These Speakers sound great at first, have had them installed for six months, and now they are the reason i will never buy rockford fosgate anything, The design is horrible! the tweets on both of the speakers snapped right in half.
