While these speakers have much clearer highs and mids at low volume, I had trouble with distortion at all volumes once any bit of bass was introduced. Even after the break in period, these speakers had less volume and bass than the stock speakers w/ factory head unit. The three stars are for Crutchfield. They bent over backwards to make this right. If every business ran like this we would not be in a recession. They asked me what I wanted to do, I told them, they did it. Awesome bunch of people. My doctor never treated me with this much respect, and he takes a heck of a lot more of my money!
These speakers seem to be a quality product, HOWEVER, you MUST use them with an upgraded head unit! I do not think these were meant for bass. These are higher wattage speakers so your factory HU will not cut the mustard!
Pros: CRUTCHFIELD CUSTOMER SERVICE! Buy with confidence. Even if this product doesnt do what it needs to for you they will make it right. HOWEVER, do take the time to call them first so you get exactly what you need for your system.
Cons: Bad bass, ok mids, good clarity. One turns on and off randomly, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt....these do not fit in the standard mounting brackets because they have this shroud around them, so prepare to get creative on the mounting.
