Designed for more clarity

Do you want to hear the details you've been missing in your car's sound system? You'll enjoy exceptional clarity from Infinity's Reference X Series REF-6502ix 6-3/4" speakers. Infinity's UniPivot design allows you to aim each textile dome tweeter toward your ears, so you enjoy excellent stereo imaging even if the speakers are mounted way down low in your doors. Each tweeter features a level control switch so you can boost the brightness to your taste.

Larger woofer for more bass

The REF-6502ix appeals to bassheads too, with tough polypropylene woofers and durable hi-roll rubber surrounds that deliver strong low-frequency performance. Each Plus One+ woofer sports a significantly larger cone than speakers of similar size, adding plenty of punch to the speaker's smooth and accurate highs.

REF-6502ix 6-3/4

Great for any power supply

You can power these speakers with up to 60 watts of RMS power — they'll work great with an external amplifier, but they're also sensitive enough to be a good match for a factory or aftermarket stereo. Plus, Infinity comes up with a safe way to get a little more power out of your system — these 3-ohm speakers combine with the speaker wire in your car so your car stereo sees actual 4-ohm impedance. Grilles are included along with Infinity logo badges that can be attached to your factory grilles.

Note: Infinity describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Product Highlights:

  • 6-3/4" 2-way car speakers
  • Plus One+ polypropylene woofer cone with hi-roll rubber surround
  • 1" edge-driven, textile dome tweeter
  • included brackets allow mounting in a variety of 6-3/4" and 6-1/2" openings
  • True Four Ohm Impedance technology: speaker's 3-ohm impedance combines with speaker wire impedance for a 4-ohm load
  • compatible with virtually all factory or aftermarket car stereos
  • power range: 5-60 watts RMS (180 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 53-21,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 93 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-1/16"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why replace your factory speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off, the build quality is great. It just feels high quality when holding it in your hand, especially the basket. Even the hardware looks high quality. Once installed it sounds awesome. I tried it with the tweeter attenuator at 0db and +3db. +3db worked better with my 600 watt sub. Still, I decided to leave it flat and just boost the tweeter at the head unit. It sounds nice and bright, but not harsh. The rotating bezel takes some time getting used to. It had no markings to say where to stop and it felt tight at times. The woofer gave good, balanced midrange and midbass. It's not bass heavy, but it sounds good. I have them crossed over at 100hz and tried them at 80hz with no problems. They include a pair of nice grilles, foam gaskets and even some nice, little infinity badges to put on the factory speaker grilles. Overall, I'm very happy and satisfied with my purchase. They're definitely worth the price.

Pros: Good build quality, 1 inch tweeter with rotating bezel, plus one woofer cone, 3 ohm

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After installing another brand that was just to bright, I exchanged them for these. they had decent Bass for this size speaker and the tweeter was not as shiny as the other set which was perfect. the sound quality from my factory head unit is very good and was certainly an upgrade from the stock single cone speakers. I now have Reference speakers in my dash and rear deck. thanks Crutchfield for making exchanges easy.

Pros: good quality, good sound all around good speaker for this size unit.

Cons: the mounting hardware did not match what I needed for my dodge install. you need to have flat head screws that mount under the flange and use a nut on top. other than that Nothing

Smooth highs and well balanced sound. Bass isn't incredible, to be expected from a 6.5 " speaker. Far and away the best speakers I've had for less than 100 dollars.

Solid performer and good value

Written By BigTex, Dallass, TX on Sunday, May 24, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to install in rear doors of a 2006 Toyota Tundra crew cab. Installation brackets provided by Crutchfield were flimsy plastic and and not up to my standards for a OEM fit and finish. Gutted old speakers and installed the Infinity speakers in old speaker housings to get proper fit and spacing. This required a good amount of fabrication including filling voids in old housing with JB Weld to create bosses to drill and secure new speakers to. Also soldered the jumper wires from housing to new speakers. When complete, the speakers fit perfectly and were sealed in the door. No road noise, wind drafts or water leaks. Spacing was perfect behind door panels. The Infinity speaker covers were not used. A definite improvement in sound over the stock speakers. I am using a Jensen Heavy Duty AM/FM/CD radio JHD1635BTB. Max power output: 180 watts (45W x 4) This radio puts out more power than stock head unit and the speakers matched up nicely. Now I need to change out the front speakers with another set of these Infinity speakers.

Pros: Good performance. Good construction quality.

Cons: No cons with the speakers or Infinity. The adapter brackets to install the speakers or cheap, flimsy plastic and don't fit properly as is the case with most of the plastic brackets made by Scosche and Metra. You are better off modifying the OEM brackets to get a trouble free fit.

2004 Nissan Xterra... Replaced my worn-out factory speakers with these the week before it turned 10yo... Couldn't justify spending a lot of money but, especially since my windows are always down, I wanted decent sound... Wow, these are SO MUCH BETTER than I expected, especially for the price... Also like to say that the customer service from Crutchfield was incredible... Website, representative I spoke to on the phone, delivery time, and detailed instructions they sent

Pros: Sound, installation, and value

Cons: That I didn't upgrade to these much sooner

I initially purchased Infinity Reference speakers for my wife's truck for her birthday. She didn't want speakers. She wanted new workout clothes. So I exchanged the speakers for ones that fit in my BMW supecar. Now I have sick beats in my car and a hot wife at the gym. Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: These speakers are amazing. I was really worried I would have to find a way to cram my old subwoofer into the trunk of my car, but these guys took care of that. Amazing lows and clean highs.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome speakers. I bought these to get those highs and mids I been missing but was surprised by the bass that these infinitys put out, it won't knock pictures off the walls but still pretty good and hits perfectly to any music. Im waiting to add a sub as the final piece to the puzzle. I would recommend these over and over again. With the harness Crutchfield provided installing them took 20 mins and another 20 minutes of sitting in my car jamming all my music! Oh and let them break in a little everyday sounds better!

Pros: Clarity amazing mids and highs. 3d. Button on tweeter

Cons: Not a whole lot of bass but not what these are for


Written By DanP, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, January 06, 2015

Installed these with visions of glory,making my average stereo sound great. I'm running a aftermarket sony xplod with some cheap kenwoods in the front. Replaced the rear factory speakers with the polks and expected a major difference. I noticed a nice difference with the highs from the tweeters but have a lot of distortion from the mids. Gave them about a 20 hr break in before I really tried to test them thinking it would sound better and there wasn't much difference. However, I will say the louder I play them the better they sound. I called Crutchfield and spoke with tech support and the told me my stereo isn't pushing enough watts for the speakers and I would need an amplifier. I do believe these speakers will sound great with the amp but didn't think I would NEED one. So now I'm stuck with these until I can afford to purchase the amp,right now I'm thinking about putting my cheap factory speakers back in. At this point I am very disappointed

Crutchfield response on Monday, January 12, 2015 When replacing factory speakers, people sometimes hear less bass but improved clarity in the mids and highs. That's not unusual. But hearing a loss of sound quality in the mids, especially when you already have an aftermarket stereo powering them, is unusual, and especially so, given the high sensitivity of these Infinity speakers. Adding the power of a small amplifier (40-50 watts) will greatly improve the sound by giving these speakers the power they need to really come to life. Remember, you have 60 days to return or exchange the speakers if you're not satisfied. Just give us a call and we'll get that set up for you. Our Customer Service reps will be glad to help in any way they can.

These speakers really wake up the sound of my 2012 Chevy Cruze. I replaced all 4 door speakers and the base is way more than factory. I still have the oem stereo and they sound very nice.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These sound great. I have them in an extended cab Sierra. The rear speakers have little bass (I have a feeling that's a design in the truck not the speaker.) all around the speakers sound great. Much better than stock. Very clear. I've only had them in for a week so I'm still adjusting and fine tuning the eq on the factory radio but so far I love them.

Pros: Sound great. Very clear.

Cons: Not really any so far

I purchased these as replacements for my front door speakers in my 2007 Toyota Camry. These are very high quality compared to the OEM speakers Toyota gives you. Great crisp highs, great bass as well. Goes well with my Rosen Navi HU considering I'm only getting about 25w per channel with a peak of 45.

Pros: Good highs, good bass.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased some Kicker 6.5' speakers from Crutchfield and installed into the front door panel of my 2004 Toyota Camry and they sounded like crap. So, I went back to Crutchfield and ordered these as a replacement. I can't say enough good things about them. Great bass for only powering 45w / channel. If you like more bass, give these a go - you won't be disappointed! I have no need to add a sub, these are so good. As always, Crutchfield shipping is fast, and included everything I needed to install!

Pros: Great bass response compared to Kicker 6.5" speakers previously ordered

Cons: Can't find any yet.

These speakers sound way better than the stock 6x9's they replaced. They don't have a lot of bass, but that's what the 10" shallow mount kicker box under the back seat is for.

Infinity Reference X REF-6502ix

Written By Zelatore, Sacramento on Saturday, May 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While the speakers do provide a marginal improvement in sound quality over the stock units they are 3 ohm vs the 2 ohm of the OEM which means I have to drive the stock head unit that much harder to obtain the same volume levels. As the NV200 is a relatively loud vehicle that simple leads to the stereo's output breaking up sooner. In particular, mid-bass frequencies easily cause massive distortion. Over all, I don't think the speakers were a worth-while improvement over stock. Perhaps as part of a larger upgrade where I was adding a better head unit and/or amp(s) and/or sub(s) they would be OK, but as a simple stock replacement they did not impress. FWIW, they are not a drop-in replacement for the NV200, but will fit with minor work.

Pros: improved bass response over stock

Cons: 3 ohm vs stock 2 ohm means you drive the stock head unit harder to get same volume levels and distort the amp sooner.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was a little nervous about installing my own speakers, having always paid someone to do it for me. But the Crutchfield staff really helped make it a great experience. I was quite please with my work when I finished. While the stereo itself should probably be replaced, the new speakers are helping with the overall sound quality.

What a welcome improvement

Written By Ed, Breinigsville PA on Thursday, May 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I own a 2013 VW Jetta TDI , and while I love the car , the sound system was pretty mediocre. I decided to add some new speakers to improve the sound quality without changing the clean factory looks of the interior. I used the "fit my car" search refining option and chose the 6502ix's from infinity because I wanted the improved bass from the larger cone plus the extra clarity from dedicated tweeters that can be aimed up and out of the bottom of the door where the factory mounts are. I am not much of a do-it-yourself type of person ,but I thought I might give it a try . The speakers came with all of the stuff I needed and installing them took about 1 hour on the drivers door. ( going slowly and carefully, the driver's side door has a lot more wiring connections to unhook, power windows , mirror , door locks and security light.) The other doors took about 30 mins. apiece and when I was done , everything still looked "factory original" , but the sound was great!! I am a very satisfied customer!!

Pros: Had to make one phone call to get some help with finding a hidden torx screw. The customer help guy was patient and knew exactly what to do and explained it to me in about a minute and a half!! I would suggest that a newbie like me should do the install while the Crutchfield customer service line is available. They turned a "What do I do now?" moment into a confidence builder. I will do this again next time , it was actually fun and I love the results!

2006 Chevy 2500HD Silverado

Written By Brian V., Augusta, GA on Thursday, April 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Factory front speakers went out, requiring replacement. Great sound even backed by the factory radio. Small amount of clearance between woofer surround and door panel at full extension, this should not be a problem for normal volume listening. If so just trim away a bit of the door panel opening, its hidden behind the factory grill anyway.

Pros: Simple Install. Clean Sound

Cons: Two gaskets, only one of which you get instructions on using, the second is for the mounting ring, use it as a buffer between the door and mounting ring you mount the speaker with.

Very Nice OEM Replacement Speaker

Written By Majosu, Pearland, YX on Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased and installed these speakers to replace the OEM speakers in the front doors of my 2012 Toyota Tacoma. The difference is substantial. Good and crisp on the high end and surisingly complete on the bottom end. I read several reveiws that complained about the lack of low end on these speakers. To my mind that can only come from unreasonable expectations and a lack of knowledge of what good bass response should be. This speaker will not shake the windows of the car next to you, but I think the sound is very, very good.

Pros: Great sound Easy install with the kit from Crutchfield.

Cons: None

These Infinity speakers sound great and fit perfectly in my 2013 Avalanche. I like the directional tweeter attached to the speaker. Provides a full range and deep base unlike the OEM speakers supplied with the truck.

Pros: Fit my doors well with the adapter supplied by Crutchfield. Sound is great with the Alpine head unit and Alpine amp in my 2013 Avalanche.

Great quality speakers! I read many reviews on various brands and decided to go with the Infinity's. These speakers did not disappoint. I put them in the rear doors of my 2007 Silverado to replace factory ones. The installation was easy and sound is booming! For a 6.5" speaker these have all kinds of base and treble with the factory stereo. Everyone wants the deep base from a sub in a speaker this size and they deliver for a 6.5".

Pros: Ease of install, base and optional tweeter control

Cons: none

Good Value

Written By ReneN, Blacksburg, VA on Friday, December 27, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were installed in the rear doors of a 2007 Honda Fit. Given the size of the magnet structure of these speakers, it required doubling of the mounting brackets (included plus those from Crutchfield) to avoid having to cut the doors.

These are rear speakers, so can't comment on the sound much (I sit in front), but the existing Honda Speakers have a magnet structure the size of a quarter. Speakers had everything necessary to mount properly. Being able to adjust the direction of the tweeter is a plus, as they are located very low and forward in this vehicle.

Pros: Value, flexibility to aim tweeter (rotatable), quality of mounting hardware.

Written By Rich, Watertown, WI on Saturday, October 05, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

One factor in my purchase was the excellent customer service I received when I had an issue with a wiring harness I purchased from Crutchfield. These speakers were connected to a JVC KW-HDR81BT head unit and a factory installed amp.

Installation was a snap (front door installation), thanks to the Crutchfield Advisor information that matches products with your automobile model. The free wiring harness saved several minutes and was one less thing to screw up. Late model cars are so much easier to work with compared to classic cars because the door panels are simple to remove. In all, installation time was about 45 minutes per door.

I'm still tweaking my sound settings and the JVC head unit is highly tweakable. But so far I've been impressed with the sound. Bass is fine for me. The limiting factor for bass is physics; you're only going to get so much out of 6.75". If you want the very bottom, then you need a subwoofer. The OEM speakers that I removed had partial plastic enclosures on them. I think after market makers should consider developing them for their products.

These speakers are a very good value for money. Tough to beat.

Pros: - Very crisp in the mid and hi range. - Satisfactory bass performance. - Installation was a breeze. Plenty of extra screws and clips if you need them. - The included stick on badges were a nice touch when using existing door panel grills.

Cons: - Manufacturers should consider offering enclosures with the speakers.

Written By Tom, Broken Arrow, OK on Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Never even got to hear the speakers because they would not fit into the kick panels of my classic car without having to cut structural metal to install them, which was a bummer. The car is a convertible, so they won't do any good by installig them in the back seat. I wouldn't be able to hear them anyway.

Pros: Supposed to be a great sounding speaker. Never heard them...

Cons: Won't fit in a 1970 Olds Convertible without structural changes.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got these for a 07 Honda Civic. Even though Crutchfield says it fits with a bracket, it doesn't. Does not clear torsion bar in trunk without raising speakers with bracket and spacers/washers.

I enjoy these speakers very much. The mid's and highs are superb. The bass is also excellent for a 6.5" speaker. When researching these speakers and reading reviews I saw many complaints about the bass which almost steered me away. I took a chance and turned out more than pleased with the bass of the speakers. If you are looking for a natural/true bass these are awesome. If you are looking to rattle the trunk these are not for you.

Pros: Crutchfield support. Great overall sound.

Cons: metal used for connecting +/- ports is a little flimsy. No idea where to put the little "infinity" stickers that came with the speakers.

These were recommended to me from a Crutchfield advisor for a decent system with no sub. I'd say half of that recomendation was right. These speakers have crystal clear highs and mids, but the bass just simply seems lacking in my opinion. You can hear the bass, but it's not got a ton a presence in the sound. These would be great paired with a subwoofer

These speakers are great. The sound is so clear and I haven't been able to hear any distortion yet even at high volumes. These speakers surprisingly push out a lot of bass. It's not the really low end bass that's gonna shake your entire vehicle but that's not what these speakers are for. Overall I'm very pleased with these speakers.

Pros: Very clear sound (lows and highs), no distortion, lots of bass

Cons: Not really a con, but these aren't the greatest for really low bass frequencies. If you really want that you need a sub.

They sound 10X better than the MTX. They also have decent bass. Although they work well with my Kenwood receiver, I am going to add an amp.

Pros: High quality speaker! Great sound!

Cons: NONE

You can't go wrong with these

I installed a epicenter and the bass is so hard that I. Needed more music. Since I already had 6 infinity speakers I decided to place these new 6 1/2 s on the doors and the pair that were removed went to the rear deck but closest to the side panels as posible and this added more sound on the back fill and the new ones on the doors sound fantastic! Thanks Crutchfield!!

Pros: Covered the old speakers space just right and the tweeter adjustment adds life to the front sound.

Cons: None

Great product

Infinity Reference X REF-6502ix Review

Written By Pokey, Pacific Grove, CA on Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit and installation were perfect especially with the Crutchfield downloaded instruction which was specific for my vehicle. Sound quality of these new speakers is far superior to the OEM speakers.

Pros: Easy to install. Fit was perfect.

Cons: Small con was the factory speaker wire connector had to be cut off and I had to make new connections. Not a big deal I know.

I replaced the worn out speakers in my 2003 Silverado with these speakers. The installation was pretty easy with the helpful links on the website. The speakers sound great and I couldn't be happier. I might just look into a new radio in the future to go with the new speakers.

Updated speakers in Class A motorhome

Written By Ron, Albuquerque, NM on Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed 2 sets of speakers in our Class A motorhome -one set in front cabinets over driver/passenger area and second set in cabinets over bed in rear of coach. Each set sounded different driven by the cabinet size. Front cabinets were deeper giving more bass but muffled sound. Cup your hands around your mouth as if you were going to shout at someone - this is what it sounded like. This was easily fixed by buying polyfill at Walmart and loosely stuffing the cabinets. Add/delete polyfill stuffing to achieve your desired baseline sound quality with stereo treble/bass tone settings at zero. Rear speakers sounded great with no tweaking required. Yes I would buy them again. These speakers greatly improved our factory speakers!

Pros: Love the angled tweeters & 3db gain option to direct sound where I want it. Grill design makes for easy installation - it pops off allowing easy access to 4 mounting screws. Additional gasket material included provides a nice seal option.

Cons: none

replacing stock 2005 Jeep Liberty speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent sounding speaker. Used to replace the stock speakers in a 2005 Jeep Liberty. They sound great. Hooked up to the stock amplifiers in the doors. I left the stock dash speakers in. I will either disconnect them or replace them if they go bad.

Pros: Good price, came with adapters to fit the doors. Crutchfield sent additional adapters that I didn't need.

Cons: none

Installed this speaker system in my 2012 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab. Very easy to do with included instruction sheets, brackets and wire harness adapters. sounds great even with a factory radio still installed and no amp. Clean and crisp through out the sound level from low to high. Replaced both front and rear door speakers with this model.

Pros: All the free gear you get with your order, brackets for oe style install, and wire harness adapters.

Cons: NONE

Infinity REF-6502ix 6.5"/6.75" 2-Way Car Speaker in Silverado

Written By Walter, Ocean Springs, MS on Friday, April 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Infinity REF-6502ix 6.5"/6.75" 2-Way Car Speaker is an excellent choice to replace OEM front door speakers in a 2006 Chevy Silverado. The OEM speaker is mounted in a bracket that holds the speaker in the door and lifts the speaker to fill the gap between the speaker and the door panel speaker opening. The OEM speaker has a foam face that seals to the door panel opening. There is be a gap between the aftermarket Infinity speakers and the door panel opening of about .8 inches.

I installed the speakers straight to the door. I ended up going with 0 db on the tweeters and with them orientated down and slightly facing forward. You really can't appreciate the speaker's performance from listening to the radio. You need to play a CD to really appreciate the sound quality. At half volume, I'm ready to get run out of the cab. At that level there zero distortion. I used weather seal foam tape to seal the Infinity speakers to the door panel. I figured if I didn't seal the speaker, like the OEM's were sealed, I'd be losing some sound to the door panel void because there's a gap between the Infinity and the door panel. I used Duck brand .5 inch thick by .75 inch wide weather seal self adhesive foam and applied it at the door around the speaker outside edge and at the door panel around the speaker opening.

Pros: Great sound. Great value.

Cons: None.

Infinity 6502ix 6.5-inch Door Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these speakers in my 2008 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab P/U and they are a good upgrade from the factory speakers. I am using the factory head unit with these and they sound great! Installation wasn't a problem using the instructions supplied from Crutchfield. If you do not have plastic trim tools to remove the door panels I would suggest getting them from Crutchfield so you don't damage your door panels while removing them.

Pros: Sound great!

Cons: None

Infinity Reference X REF-6502

Written By Mike, Tennessee on Monday, April 01, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My 2008 Sierra Extended cab pickup has the speakers mounted in the lower door panels, right on the floorboards. This really kills the high end. I tried a couple of speakers that had really good sound in other vehicles, but they just sounded really "muddy" , even with tweeters installed in the sail panels, due to the low speaker placement in my truck. These Infinitys were recommended, I replaced all 4 speakers and I am really pleased with the sound. They have a switch to increase the tweeter +3 db and also rotate the tweeter upwards. These have really brought out the sound of the Kenwood DDX419 head unit. You can't really expect a lot of base with any 6.5 in the door panels and I do use a 12" sub.

Pros: Great performance for the price. High end adjustable +3 db.

Cons: Doesn't come with any speaker wire, in case you have to run any extra.

Initially I thought it was the amp, but I spent 2 hours rewiring into the deck. Still sound like garbage.

Pros: They work, at barely audible volume level

Cons: They distort at any level.

I replaced my factory speakers in a Honda Pilot with 2 pairs of the Infinity 6502ix. I also added a Sound Ordinance Subwoofer and and Alpine head unity. I listen to jazz, folk, rock. I don't run the volume up to ear splitting levels but I enjoy a full sound experience. These speakers work great for me. They installed with a little modification to the factory speaker plastic housing. The instructions from Crutchfield were excellent. I am really glad I bought these.

Pros: Great sound, great price

Installed in a 2008 Silverardo Extd Cab Front & Rear

Written By Craig, Rancho Cucamonga, Ca on Sunday, January 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed both front and rear Speaker. They sound very nice much better than the stock ones. The front Speaker came with mounts and a wiring harness very easy to install The rear Speaker did not come with mount had to rework the GM mounts. (not a real big deal) If I were to do it again I would get the 51/4 speaker for the rear they would be much easier to install. Overall with the detailed information that Crutchfield provided on how to remove the door panels thing went very smooth

Pros: Great information very easy to follow instruction

Cons: None I will buy again from Crutchfield
