2011 Toyota Venza- Replaced the factory speakers with a set of the Sound Ordinance P65c (front) and P65 (rear). The speakers are clearer and sound better than I thought and will be even better once I decide on a head unit.

Pros: Installer was very knowledgeable about the size of the rear speakers (slightly different from what was stated online), very neat about his work, and saved me a lot of time (dealing with tight spaces, small tools, etc). The shop was clean and the installation could be monitored from the waiting room as well as the show room.

I was very impressed with the quality and performance of these speakers. Given the low price, one usually equates low price with low quality. Not in this case. Being Crutchfield's house brand I wouldn't expect the quality to be poor. It's clear these are made by a major, and well renowned speaker manufacturer. Just not sure which one.

Pros: Great quality and sound for an excellent price.

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to replace Honda factory rear speakers that came with the add- on Bass Kit and Amp Honda makes for the upgrading of the Civic factory system I purchased and installed in my 2006 LX. I figure the amp they sent with the kit probably delivers about 30 RMS. The factory speakers sounded good except when you turned up the volume. They would distort. These speakers (after struggling with the Scosche adapter ring mount Crutchfield sent) sound really nice. You will need to center the speakers in the ring and drill new holes. Not a big deal - but I kind of expected them to fit without drilling. Anyway- These speakers have great Bass, midrange and treble. The are very clear and defined. They outweigh the factory speakers by about 2 to one. They can handle more power than the stock Honda speakers. Solid value for the money.

Pros: Nice sound- good upgrade from stock Honda add -on Bass system

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have these speakers installed in the sound bar and in the dash from the recommendation of the crutchfield team. They sound awesome. They produce a nice clean sound. For the price you cannot go wrong. I have an Alpine CDA-105 head unit and was using the stock speakers and the difference in the weight alone was noticeable. For the price you will not find a better speaker.

Pros: Crisp, clean sound. Cost!

Cons: Has to be an easier way to install speakers. This is not a Sound Ordnance issue but a Jeep issue. The rear speakers needed a few little extra rounds with a drill to make the speakers fit correctly with the Crutchfield installation kit.

Sounds great but sucks to install

Written By Carter, FL on Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

speakers overall sound great. much better than my stock speakers! had trouble fitting the speakers onto the mounting bracket and the cinche screws were way to short to go all the way through the bracket and speaker. we had to use a saw to cut down the plastic enough to make the cinches go all the way through. even after doing that, the holes would not like up properly with the speaker holes so I couldn't even fit all the screw's in. wish Crutchfield would add a notice saying the bracket doesn't always fit properly.

Pros: sounds awesome looks nice

Cons: stupid hard install

Great sound over the factory spakers

Surprisingly Good

Written By Alex, Detroit, MI on Thursday, April 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the scratch and dents to save some cash. There may have been stuff missing, but Crutchfield was great and sent the adapter and everything necessary for the install. Unlucky for me, the adapter was too small for the actual speaker 6.5" on a 2007 audi a4 non bose stereo system. What I ended up doing was take the stock speaker, cut the cone out, and use the housing for the stock speaker and mounted the p65s right into it. Crutchfield was also awesome, helped along the way with a few quick questions. Their wiring diagram and install sheet was a little wrong, but I was able to figure it out anyway.

Pros: Not sure why people are saying lack of bass, maybe its your overall system? These replaced stock 3 way speakers with a separate tweeter and its easily double the bass I had before. Speakers sound really good

Cons: Not a direct fit, but Im sure that was more of a problem with my car then the speaker itself. Also did not fit into the adapter sent. Maybe a Crutchfield mistake? Biggest Issue I had was there was no option other than soldering the connections, the terminals were tiny and in a very compact place. I would have loved to have had the option for some quick connects, but whatever, soldering seems to usually be the best option anyway.

Good replacement for the factory speakers in 08 Silverado. Work well, and cost less than factory. Plus, adapters were included, saving even more...

Pros: good sound, better than factory, good price considering the adapters were included.

Cons: If you use an adapter, you will need different screws and nuts than provided. Check ahead of time..

Awesome!!! The best speakers I've bought, ever. Once they broke in they were even better. Way better than stock sound system. They blast on the high end while maintaining a hard hit on the low end. Got asked the other day at the car wash, while i was cleaning out my car, what size sub i was running and told him i was running two 6.5"s... Im definitely gonna get two more and replace my blown out rear speakers next. Definitely a good use of $50.

Nice sound with a nice price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I usually buy Sony, or Pioneer speakers due to past experience but I took a shot with these because of the price and other reviews. I am very pleased with the sound to say the least. For the price I was quite surprised with it after I installed them. They don't take heavy base very well but the sound quality is far better than the factory speakers.

Pros: Price, sound, overall quality (so far)

Cons: poor bass

Sound good, need a bit more bass.

Written By MitchMo, Oregon on Monday, April 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound good in the mid and high but the bass is a little lacking, which is mostly expected. Can't really beat the low price. The mounting brackets will not line up with any of the holes. Just expect it and drill new ones.

Pros: As a speaker for mid and tweet, it excels.

Cons: Practically no bass.

Speakers in my 2001 VA Jetta were shot. Picked these up on sale and they are great. Outperforms my stock speakers. The only quarrel I have with them is that the spacers they shipped did not fit . the pattern was 1/4" off maybe for a 6 1/4" speaker instead of the 6 1/2" I ordered.

Pros: Free hardware. No splicing needed with the supplied connectors. Price was awesome.

Cons: Spacers didn't have the correct fitment, had to modify a bit. Even so install was less than 1 her for all 4.

I installed these in the rear doors of my 2012 Suzuki equator and am very happy with them. Crutchfield recommended these and although they required a little tweaking to install correctly I am very satisfied. BTW, after a week or two to break these in, the sound gets much richer in my opinion.

Pros: Price, sound

Cons: A little difficult to install.

Sound Ordnance™ P-65

Written By Ian, Bellefontaine, OH on Saturday, March 01, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking to replace my 10 year old Rockford Fosgate speakers due to one having cracks in the surround. So I decided to save money and give these speakers a try. The sound quality of the speakers are not too bad, but not great. I wasn't expecting a whole lot from them, but they do fairly well. The sound seems a bit cluttered, some people may not notice it, but at higher volume it sounds fairly good for a value priced speaker. The quality of the speaker themselves is very good. They also tend to fit in tighter areas (I used the slim speaker baffles in my door and still had nearly 1/2" gap of space!). The two issues I have with them is that one of my boxes was missing the speaker wire leads and even the mounting screws. Luckily I had the harness Crutchfield gives to cut up and solder in (factory connectors are gone years ago). The other issue is the mounting holes didn't seem to line up with anything! I decided to just make new holes in the adapter bracket. If you are simply looking for better sound at a value price, these do just fine. If you want amazing sound quality, spend some cash and look at JBL or mid to high end Infinity.

Pros: Speaker quality, slim fit (for not being a slim fit specific speaker), actual tweeter, mid-high volume sound quality, short speaker wire leads (for those that like to cut factory plugs off and solder new)---personal preference instead of feet of useless wire.

Cons: Slightly cluttered sound at low and high volume, missing hardware (in one box), mounting holes don't match very well.

Nice speakers

Written By Clint M, Manteca, Ca on Thursday, February 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price these speakers sound very nice. I bought them to replace the stock speakers in a 1999 Tahoe. They are not a $200 pair of component speakers so dont expect them to sound that way. But for the price I was impressed, much better than something you would find at a local audio store for a similar price.

I gave a 4 star rating because I am very picky regarding audio equipment and they would have to be amazing for me to give 5 stars.

Pros: Ease of installation with the included speaker wire connectors as well as the speaker adapters.

Cons: nothing so far, have been in for about 2 weeks.

Not having a lot of cash on hand, the ripped up stock paper speakers needed to go. finding help on line very valuable. kept the price down, and the sound quality up. very happy with the new speakers, and wouldn't hesitate to go there yet again!

Pros: got the heads up but they sent replacement parts with the speakers before I needed them, I gues this type of thing happens a lot?

Cons: got the heads up only after the old speakers where removed. I really must talk to help before I tear things out.

The speakers sound pretty good. I'm a bit of a simpleton, but they sounded much better than the stock speakers they replaced. (2001 Jetta)

Pros: The sound

Cons: The installation was not like I thought and it took me a lot longer than it should have. I ended up ditching the recommendations and figured out my own install. Wiring was tricky since I had no harness included as I think was supposed to be.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good speakers! HUGE improvement over stock 2003 Lancer OZ speakers. Good clarity and more bass than i was expecting! should sound even better when I amp them!.. some people on here come and rip good speakers on the reviews becuase they say they dont have the best sound but that would be because they are simpley being under powered running of 10-15 RMS total when they need 50RMS EACH! these things want 200x4 RMS into them! excited to amp them!! sound great now!! should sound better later!

Pros: easy to wire! no splicing or anything required if you get the speaker wire harnesses.. great sound for the price!

Cons: Took awhile to mount and was a bit tricky... they didnt fit the brackets that Crutchfield gave me with them but 9 out of 10 times you have to blast holes into the brackets and where and another few where your mounting the bracket and speaker unless it fits your car perfectly this was Mainly due to my Lancer.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I knew going in that these were budget speakers so didn't expect much. Im on a serious budget but wanted something better than the stock speakers in my 2012 Honda Civic. I needed them to be able to handle a 50 watt per channel amp that I have and these work quite well. If you want GREAT sound, spend more money and select on of the prime brands like Alpine and Rockford if you want the best, but I needed something in between and these were spot on. Price was great and they produce decent bass without much distortion.

Pros: Inexpensive, decent sound, better than stock speakers

Cons: Only a notch above stock speakers, Careful with the terminals, almost broke putting speaker terminals on.

Great speakers and even better for the value. There are very few pre-drilled holes on the units to match with the mounting bracket so the installation can be a little difficult, but that is a minuscule problem. Theses speakers are a must buy for anyone looking to replace factory or OEM speakers.

Pros: Great sound and simple to install and wire with factory car wiring.

Cons: Limited pre-drilled holes for matching screw with mounting bracket can cause some difficulty.

Written By Anonymous, Anchorage, AK on Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While I know that when someone says "value," people have a tendency to automatically think "cheap," that should not be the thought with these. They are constructed very well and of quality materials. I've been deep into the audio world for quite some time, and have experienced a lot of speakers at both ends of the cost spectrum. For these being toward the lower end, they have excellent sound. The biggest mistake would to hook them up to your OEM head unit or a cheap 20 watt deck and claim that the speakers only sound somewhat better than the originals. Use a good head unit or a simple amp. These sound quite a lot better with a full, clean 50 - 60 watts behind them. You'll be surprised.

Pros: Great clarity and output volume, sleek but simple looks, very well designed and constructed, excellent price for the quality!

Good Value Depending on Expectations

Written By Anonymous, Texas on Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently replaced my rear speakers with the P-69s. Although these were better than the previous speakers, the sound created by the old (fronts) and new speakers (rears) was very harsh. In order to make them play nicely together, I would need a separate equalizer for the old and new speakers. Instead of spending tons of money on relatively inexpensive speakers, I replaced the front speakers with the P-65s.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the base is substantially less than the original factory speakers. You may think by turning up the base you can overcome this issue; however, I would highly advise against this as the sound quality goes downhill fast if you send these speakers a lot of base. Since my car has 6x9's in the back, this isn't a big deal for me. However, if these were the largest speakers in my car, I would strongly consider returning them.

The other issue I had with these speakers is the mounting hole locations. The mounting holes were placed using a larger radius than the factory mounting locations. Since the car had little plastic in the speaker compartment, it was a bit of a challenge to mount the speaker well.

Besides the base and mounting issues, these speakers have been great for the price. I have enjoyed listening to a wide variety of music and overall am happy with my purchase.

Pros: Price, Sound quality (with little base)

Cons: Lack of base, Mounting hole locations

Good Value, mixed first experience with Crutchfield

Written By stock audio, in my car on Sunday, June 16, 2013

First off, let me say that I think these are a great value and my overall experience with Crutchfield was positive.

I am a very no frills car audio person. My only other experience was replacing a radio head that was stolen out of my car years ago. I blew a front speaker, and I needed a replacement. I talked to an online advisor, explained that I wanted a no frills, easy, affordable replacement option. She recommended these speakers, and they turned out to be very nice sounding, crisp, clear, and louder than the originals. They might sound like trash to an audiophile, but to this layperson's ear it is like being at the concert.

My experience with Crutchfield was very good and I think that the items I received-speakers, wiring, and spacer brackets- represent an excellent value. But, I have to say two things were a little frustrating. First, I was under the impression that your order comes with all the directions for the install. They don't. You need to research how to remove your door panels yourself. The instructions only tell you the wiring. Second, I thought the spacers were plug and play parts. They aren't. I had to do some modifications to the spacer to make them work. I had to trim the spacer to make it sit flat in the door, I had to drill new holes into the door, and I needed to drill new screw holes to mount the speaker. Not the end of the world, and I still got the job done cleanly. But, it ended up being a bit more involved than expected

Pros: great value

Cons: spacer brackets required modification.

They have some bass but they can easily get very distorted and it's a pain having to switch my bass down to -9 or -2 depending on the song.

Overall good for the price but only for vocals.

Can't believe my ears!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When looking for a speaker upgrade I was a little skeptical of these speakers being that they are so cheap, but I decided to go with them because you just can't find silk dome tweeters for this price anywhere else. I only have them running off the HU in the rear of my 07 Civic coupe and they sound AMAZING. The sound is incredibly smooth and they have such clarity, even my girlfriend, who could care less about this stuff, noticed the huge improvement over stock. But it's not just a stock replacement. I kid you not when I say these sound just as good and probably have more clarity than my polk db651's (which are amped at 75w rms) in the front. I may have a found a new go-to brand in Sound Ordnance.

Pros: Clarity, smoothness, and VALUE

Cons: I guess I should mention they don't have a huge amount of bass by themselves, but what can you expect from a 6.5 coax? That's what a sub is for

Easy install

Easy install. Good improvement over OEM. Good mids and highs. A bit soft on the bottom

Man, these speakers hit way above their weight! The sound quality for the price here is phenomenal. They have above average highs and really decent mids while being driven by a 50W per channel Pioneer head unit. The lows can get a bit muddled but I that's not what a 6.5" is for anyway so that's fine. Even my wife, who could not normally care less about speakers and sound quality gave me a high-five after hearing these speakers for the first time. I took a chance based on the other user reviews and I am more than pleased that I did. Don't these speakers today!

Pros: Fantastic Value Audio Quality: Highs and Mids

Cons: Not a ton of 'punch'

odd size NOT 6 1/2"

Written By DubBug, Alabama on Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Fine speakers, but They are NOT 6 1/2 speakers, they are slightly smaller which is why so many people say they don't fit. Total Speaker diameter is 6" Screw hole to screw hole diameter is 5 3/4." Too bad crutchfield doesn't list dimensions instead of saying "yes they fit" Could've saved me a month of their return process. And panels dangling in my back seat!

Cons: Crutchfield lists them wrong. These are 6" speakers and do not fit the Crutchfield adapter or a 6 1/2" cutout.

Better than I figured they would be

I wanted to replace my 20 year old door speakers in my 93 Mustang coupe and I decided on these because they were not expensive and the reviews were all pretty good. I've never used Sound Ordnance until this build and I'm very impressed. I am powering these with the factory amp and they sound great. Nice and clear sound. They could actually use more power I think. These are not made for bass. Buy a sub for that

Pros: Great price. Surprisingly good sound.

Cons: None

Fantastic Underated speakers at a great value!

These speakers are fantastic! I checked out a lot of speakers and these had the best reviews and I couldnt agree more the clarity is unbeatable the bass is Adequate for the purpose and my representative Kyle recommended them which is all I needed to know! All my interior speakers are sound ordinance buy them today! You will not be disappointed don't waste your money on other speakers invest in a good head unit and sub woofer these are all you need!

Pros: Clarity sound Fit & price!

Cons: None

Great bang for your buck. Blew my old speakers out of the water. The bass is much better in these than my stock cobalt speakers. For the price, kind of hard to go wrong.

Pros: good sound, nice bass, seems well built

Good speakers for the price, didn't fit as described though

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed all new speakers for an older van I have been revitalizing and went with these. The sound quality is above average and the overall performance I have satisfied with. The only thing is that even with the install kit the speakers still did not fit exactly into the locations. I had to redrill new holes and not use some of housing.

Pros: Above average sound quality for the price

Cons: Did not fit my vehicle even with an install kit. And yes, I double and triple checked that these were going to fit my vehicle using the online tool.

Not to bad of sound for economical speakers. These were placed in the rear door that had speakers cut outs but no speakers. Nice full range speakers that adds dimension to the sound.

Pros: Economical, ez fit, nice sound.

Cons: None

Got a great Black Friday deal on the 6 1/2's and 5x7's, to good to pass up really, and I am glad I bought these. Replaced factory in '02 lincoln, basically a winter car, can handle all the power from factory premium alpine system, easy install, all 4 in an hour, it's the little things like the detailed instructions and wiring adapters that really sets crutchfield apart, been a customer since the mid eighties for a reason. At this price point a great speaker, buy it!

Pros: Master sheet instructions and wiring harness

Cons: Had to do very minor modifying to factory bracket on fronts, rears perfect fit

Nice inexpensive speaker

Inexpensive replacement speaker for 2000 Forester. Easy installation once I decided to snip off two of the three guides on Subaru's flange rather than drill new holes. Only one hole matched the 3 threaded inserts on the flange. Rather than single 1/16" holes, the manufacturer(s) should provide channels of openings. Maybe one day I'll remove the speaker and drill the two new holes necessary to properly mount it. Maybe. Some other time. The sound is more crisp than the stock speakers. For the price, this speaker is sufficient.

Pros: Inexpensive, decent sound, ease of installation

Cons: none so far

Very happy with these speakers, value cannot be beat for the price we paid. Great sound off the factory head unit in our 1999 Honda Civic. Great bass and high end, wish there was a bit more mid range but great sound overall. Not sure why others are complaining about not enough bass response, these have more than plenty for my taste. Overall great speaker for the money, well done Crutchfield.

Pros: Build Quality, sound quality, nice tweeter, great bass response

Cons: Mid range a bit subdued

Not bad for the money

Put these in the rear position to replace blown OEM speakers. The front speakers were previously replaced with rockford roseate prime 65s, so I had something to compare to. These speakers are way better than stock. They are not quite as good as the Rockfords, but they were less than half price. They cannot handle a lot of power, but in the back seat position , and compared to stock, for the price these can't be beat.

Good Replacement

Written By KP, Indy on Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm not an audiophile, I just wanted to replace the rear speakers in my 05 Colorado Crew Cab. The OEM speakers were tired and getting that "fuzz" sound. The SO P65 speakers are much better, with a much crisper and cleaner sound. Like others, I would have to preferred to have more bass response, but I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

Pros: Value price, ease of installation, thanks Crutchfield for including the installation hardware

Cons: lacks bass response

Great value for an upgrade over stock!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was looking for an inexpensive upgrade to my stock speakers..these were a perfect match! Can't get much better for the money. Installation was a little tricky and instructions really didn't help match my vehicle.other than how to remove the door panel. But I was able to figure it out and the sound is a very nice upgrade from the stock speakers. I see some reviews on here and wonder what exactly they expected for the price??? If you want high end high end speakers. These are not them. But if you want an inexpensive upgrade to stock speakers, give these a go.

Pros: Can't beat the price...and quality is good.

Cons: For the price...none so far.

Love these fit great in my 05 pilot and sound worlds better then stock.Note to the uneducated you need good music quality to enjoy any good speakers.

Pros: Size,fit,sound clarity,degsine

Cons: The RMS says 50 but its more like 30 I can only go just over half on a 20 RMS 50 peak head unit no amp without distortion.

Quality sound and budget friendly
