Summary: Much better quality than name brand car audio speakers and cheaper! These little 6.5 speakers sound as loud as my ks 6x9 kickers and produce almost the same bass! my soundstream 6x9's sound even better!
Summary: There isn't much reason to go into a long review. In a word, they suck. I installed the Soundstream Tarantula 6.5" and 5.25" speakers in my 2002 4-Runner over the weekend. (I have an Alpine head unit & amp.) They sound worse than my factory paper cones. The highs are tinty and harsh and the lows are vague and muddy. Simply awful. I used Soundstream years ago in an old '92 4-Runner and they were wonderful. I'm guessing they weren't made in China back then.
Summary: i put theese in my jeep cherokee doors front and rear. each speaker being fed 100 watts by a clarion pro audio 4 ch. WOW! rock, rap, country, whatever it all sounds crystal clear from low vol to max vol.
