Beter than factory
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
A lot of "Disappointed's" review rang true for me. These speaks sould clean and clear with some materiel, sometimes the midrange is blarey, and sometimes they just sound muffled. NO 6" speaker will give much bass but these give about the amount I expect from this size. I am giving them a clean 20W from an older outboard Alpine amp. I'm tempted to try giving them more power but I'm not sure how much it would help. The 6.5" Boston Pro's I have in the back with 80W into each help the bass a lot. For the price they are OK.
Pros: Fit fine with Crutchfield supplied brackets in the odd sphaped factory openings in my 2005 Acura RSX.
Cons: Bass is never tight, these speakers have an overly "soft" sound. They don't sort out the details of the music well.
