Conclusion: the speaker's are very well built except the way the tweeters are mounted to the frame "flimsy" plastic when mounted vertically there are no worry's bet when mounted flat "facing up" the tweeter mount will vibrate an crack witch can cause the wire powering the tweeter's to sever an lose connection...
Summary: I purchased the T1682 speakers as direct replacement speakers for the 4 factory speakers in my 2006 F250 and the sound quality is amazing. These speakers bring all new life to the old ones I had. I have a JL Audio amp running these and they sound amazing!
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)
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.
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.
