Good punch and clarity resulting in solid stereo image across entire pan. Don't fool yourself into thinking you're going to get any real Bass out of 3.5" speakers, but they compliment the rear 6"x9"s very well, picking up just below where the 'big boys' leave off, and creating just enough frequency overlap to smooth out the overall mix (the way a well-tuned crossover does). Having said all that, one of mine has developed a standing wave (really gnarley buzz!) after only 10 days while being driven by a Delco stereo that puts out a little over half of the Kickers rated power handling capability. Assuming that's a fluke, I give them a solid 4 stars for performance-for-the-price. I am, however, VERY dissapointed in the 10 day service life I got from my pair! - DLS
Pros: Punch, clarity and aesthetics.
Cons: Made in China! Didn't know that. Would have looked elsewhere if I had.
