Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was repacing my head unit so i would have BT, jvc was running a special, buy specific head units along with 2 sets of speakers and the second set was free. So I grabbed 2 of these and figured buy one get one would be a nice way to upgrade the speakers in my 1999 ranger. After the install of the head unit and just the front speakers, well lets just say a marginal differance if at all. When I faded to the rear stock speakers they had more bass while close to the same overall sound (highs,mids). The only nod I would give these jvc's was in the clarity that was marginally better. Overall no way i buy again unless my stock speakers are blown then i would consider these only at buy one get one pricing or deep discount. I'd much rather try another similar priced set from pioneer (ive had much better experiances with) or any brand for that matter.

Pros: not much

Cons: sounds like stock

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sounded awful compared to stock speakers in my 2006 Mercury Monterey. I tried with both stock stereo and Jvc kw-v50bt and same results No bass at all mids are muddy and highs are so so at best. I tried 1 side at a time and adjusted fade and balance to compare and the stock speakers had sounds that were completely missing from the Jvc's. They may be tolerable with an amp and subs but I doubt it. Only purchased because of buy one get one free and still to much.

Pros: Fit in a 2006 Mercury Monterey with no alterations.

Cons: Sound awful compared to stock 2 way speakers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the front speakers on my wife's 2005 Ford Escape. These were an easy replacement and a perfect fit. The sound might be cleaner than stock, or it could be my perception after changing them out. They certainly don't sound worse. The price was right when I purchased her stereo and I think it was a smart move.

Pros: Easy install Great sound

Overall happy with this product

JVC CS-V6837 for 2012 Ford Escape

Written By JVC CS-V6837 for 2012 Ford Escape, SF, CA on Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are definitely an upgrade from stock - much stronger magnet, better cone material, and three-way compared to two. I expect them to last much longer. I was replacing a blown front stock speaker. From the specifications, I was expecting a greater improvement than I experienced. I purposely selected these speakers for their low RMS rating since I did not want to add an amp. It seemed like they would be very efficient and still give a significant boost in sound quality. However, the improvement is marginal compared to stock. The bass is not as well defined as I would like and the highs are not very sharp for a three-way speaker. I think these would probably sound much better over stock with a new head unit (which would add more power) or an amp. For the money, I would suggest the pioneer TS-G6844R. Cost less and makes a sound quality is much better even with stock. I have the pioneers in Ford Explorer which I ran with just the stock head unit and the difference in sound quality was noticeable. Not so with the JVCs. These speakers need power.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are great speakers. The sound is great and the instellation is easy except for the wiring adaptor. That adaptor says it will work on an F150. But I read on all the people who have an F150 or any F series truck, it will not fit the front speakers. Others said it will fit the rear, I didn't buy any rear speakers.

Pros: Sounds good, easy installation.

Cons: Wiring adaptor will not work on front speakers.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are great drop replacements for the decent but limited OEM speakers found in most late model Fords. They really wake up the sound of Shaker 500 system in my Mustang. They were also a perfect fit in the doors with no clearance issues with the door panels.

Pros: Great sound Perfect fit Great price Free factory wiring adapters

Cons: None so far

Grutchfield provides good information for installing these speakers

Written By Dennis, Kihei, Maui, HI on Monday, May 05, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My original speakers were no longer functional because of age and degradation of the paper and rubber materials used. I just needed new speakers for an older car. These worked fine, and most importantly, I got great directions and information about how to install them. Way more than I thought I would get, and must more help than one would get from a store (if there was one here on Maui).

Pros: Great help from Crutchfield. I had no fear of breaking something when doing this installation job myself. No problems at all.

Cons: I don't have any

Great Speakers for the Money!

Written By Walt H. (2001 F150 SuperCrew), Broomfield, CO on Saturday, February 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speakers for the money and a big improvement over factory. I installed these on a 2001 F150 SuperCrew on all 4 doors. Install was fairly straight forward and took me a little more than an hour. Directions were perfect and took all the guess work out of removing the door panels. I really like the idea of having three way speakers and this fit well. I did not realize this before the purchase but JVC and Kenwood are the same company.

Pros: Great improvement in audio over factory speakers. Much cleaner sound. The installation was also easier than expected with the help of the master sheets provided and the wiring harnesses.

Cons: As someone else noted in the reviews, a plastic mounting piece is glued onto the speaker and is easily pried up if you unscrew the speak. I had one lift after I backed a screw out and ended up just peeling it off. Was not an issue for my install but something to note. Also, one of the provided wiring harness adapters for the speakers was a pain to connect. It turned out the wire popped out of the adapter and I lost sound. I removed the door panel again and fixed. Just a pain.

Very responsive at low amp... Havn't hooked up my amp yet but very impressed with their performance. Crutchfield has been my first stop for years for car audio.

Pros: Great sound

Cons: The rim shroud is only stuck on. The screws push it off the speaker during install.

Woofer: Mica is added to an aramid and carbon fiber composite olefin base, resulting in a rigid, light, and durable cone.

Midrange: Each speaker features a 1" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced-dome midrange; PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome driver has a dome placed inside a cone. Balanced domes are semi-domes with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver.

Tweeters: Each speaker also has a 1/2" PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter.

Mounting Applications: The speaker's frame features two additional mounting holes and fits many 6x8, 5x7, and custom 6x8 applications. Please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit.
