The included DUB-designed grilles make a nice accessory for drivers looking to add a little flair to an average ride with a custom installation.

One of the speakers went out on my wife's Escape. Install was a breeze and they sound way better than the factory speakers. I will probably pick some up for the rear doors too.

One of the speakers went out on my wife's Escape. Install was a breeze and they sound way better than the factory speakers. I will probably pick some up for the rear doors too.

Pros: Inexpensive and much better than factory.

Cons: The grills that come with them look cheap but they are inexpensive speakers to begin with and I didn't need them.

Pleased

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased these last week to replace the 12 year old stock speakers in my carspare front and rear doors. Big difference is clarity and loudness but that was to be expected. Couldn't have asked for better product at the price. Don't plan on keeping this car forever but still want to upgrade my system while I do have it. The factory stereo will be next on the list as well as a nice powered sub for the lows since these don't really push a lot of bass out. But they do get loud I can crank up to 29/30 when previously the stocks would sound distorted at 21or 22. They fit good the installation was simple just unscrew old speakers plug in wire adaptor that came with for my model car and screw speakers back in. Total install time maybe an hour but that's taking a small beer break between the fronts and rears. Only con was doing this in south Texas heat. Also wish I could have used the grill covers that came with but my door panels really wouldn't allow that without major cutting up and customizing. Not into hacking up my panels. All in all I'm pleased with my purchase and customers service I had with Crutchfield and will order my head unit and sub in the next few weeks.

Pros: Fast shipping and easy install. Loud clear sound.

Cons: None besides the heat I had to endure but nothing regarding my purchase or speakers themselves

Good enough for me

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My speakers were totally blown. This is a work truck, so I didn't need studio quality. The speakers did soften up quite a bit after a few hours of playing. I am very happy for the money. If you are trying to keep the budget down, pick these speakers. Just don't expect the same thing as $200 dollar speakers. I would buy them again.

Pros: good for the money!

Cons:

Excellent Speakers

1994 Mazda B Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Direct replacement to the speakers mounted in the doors of my truck. Structural quality was very good with heavy gauge metal for the frame and good looking speaker material. The sound was very good for the highs and mids. The bass was limited by the overall 5"x7" physical size of the speaker. Adjusting the EQ setting on my unit brought out the best of these speakers and since they are coupled with speakers behind the seats, they rear speakers do the heavy bass and the fronts carry the rest. The sound is very impressive and I'm very satisfied with the results of this sound project. Crutchfield is my only source when purchasing car audio equipment since they have tech support that are easy to communicate with and this company always includes the needed factory connections for each specific vehicle listed.

Pros: Excellent build quality, Reasonable price, Ease of install

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Speakers are nicely made, I like the poly cone. Had to ream out the mounting holes about 3/16" to the inside to align screws. The Metra harness connector ($10 separate) made hookup a snap. Sounds great, reasonable power w/o distortion. Bass & mid-range response good, treble OK. The 1812 cannon blasts (which finished the original 22 yr. old paper cone speakers) sound great! Paired with Kenwood 3-way speakers in the front, its a well balanced system.

Pros: Good price, poly cones, good fit

Cons:

1993 Ford F Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers were an exact fit for the missing original speakers in a rat 1993 Ford FISO. The went in easy, sounded good, and were reasonably priced.

Pros: Easy to install once seat belts and all factory panels are removed.

Cons: Must re-use original Ford grills, older vehicles usually are missing way too many fasteners, and old vehicles usually have stripped threads and rusted hardware to contend with.

excellent replacement for blown speaker

2005 Ford Freestar
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The front passenger speaker on my '05 Freestar was blown and would buzz unless the volume was extremely low. We got around it for a while by balancing all the sound to the left side, but who wants to do that long-term? (Not me). Found these speakers which were a direct replacement for the stock units and work very well. Highs are crisp but the low end is somewhat empty compared to the stock speakers - however I expect some of this will fill in after the speakers have a chance to break in. Overall the speakers seem a little quieter than the stock ones as well. I'll likely get another pair and replace the rear speakers too so that the sound matches throughout the car.

Pros: Direct replacement for stock speakers, came with wiring harness and mounting screws.

Cons: Not much low end (yet), installation clips a little confusing to figure out at first

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers are very competitive for the pricing. I replaced my not so old factory door speakers with them and got a decent boost on all ends of the sound spectrum. The lows in the speakers almost overpower the 2-10s in my backseat.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased multiple speakers from local sources that claimed they would fit, only to bring home and find they didn't. These ones shipped fast, fit like stock, and sound incredible. Crutchfield will now be my first choice for car audio

Pros: Perfect fit, excellent sound quality, no distortion at higher volumes, no mods needed for install

Cons: No cons at all

Not Great

2011 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these for my 2011 Mustang Convertible. I'm not really impressed. The high end is shrill & thread, there is absolutely ZERO bass response. The mids are really nice, clean & sharp. Installation was super easy, but once I fired up my Kenwood Excelon DNX692 (no amp), I was disappointed. I just don't like the response curve. (as I noted). I think the Ford factory speakers sounded better.

Pros: Easy to install, Good price, Nice Mids.

Cons: Shrill highs, ZERO bass.

Very reasonable price for quality speakers. Makes the factory radio sound better than a high dollar unit. The free harness made the job simple with no splicing or soldering.

Pros: Great sound, good value.

Cons: None so far.

Pros: Great sound, great price

2001 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers provide terrific mid and high-range sounds; bass is OK but if you want deep bass you will need a sub-woofer. These speakers are great for factory replacements.

Pros: Easy to install, fit in my vehicle without modifications, great sound.

Cons: Not as deep of bass as I would like but they are way better than my original factory speakers.

2005 Ford Escape
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent product for the price. I was mildly worried about the speaker not having any bass based on reviews I read for the low price but after all I am not buying audiophile speakers. Just upgrading my 11 year old factory speakers. I hooked up the set of 4 to the new head unit I bought with it.. Wow! Like night and day. Great sound. You can't hear my bass coming 2 blocks away but if had wanted that I would have bought a sub woofer. So new speakers and a decent head double din JVC unit for $200 with free shipping. I can listen to my iPhone Apple Music, Pandora, radio or CDs. Cannot beat that! Install was a breeze with provided instructions.

Pros: Good full spectrum sound

Cons: None so far

Easy, affordable upgrade

2004 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Since I was upgrading my stereo head unit to gain Bluetooth hands-free calling and a backup cam, I figured it made sense to upgrade the factory speakers as well. I'm not a big music listener while in the car, so I didn't want to spend a lot of money and the Jensens fit my budget. The new head unit went in first and there was little to no improvement in sound with the factory speakers, although the equalizer settings helped a bit. Once the Jensens were installed there was a very noticeable improvement. All-in-all I'm very pleased with my new stereo system. Speaker installation on my 2004 F-150 was simple and straightforward with Crutchfield's detailed instructions. The only hiccup was that the instructions stated the wrong socket size for a couple of the bolts in the rear doors, but it only meant I had to find the correct sizes from my socket set. Not a problem, unless you don't already own a complete set of sockets and try to buy only the ones called for individually. Don't be a tightwad; buy a whole set. Bottom line: these speakers are a good affordable upgrade to factory units and I gladly recommend them.

Pros: Affordable price; clean highs and midrange with decent bass; fit factory cutouts without adapters. Come with attractive grilles, if you need them.

Cons: None come to mind.

Features
