Purchased these in 12/2019, got the install done in 3/2020...left rear speaker confirmed as blown out on 9/15/2020. Speakers are being ran off the Kicker CXA460.4T. Had no bass turned up on any of front/rear and yet that rear speaker blew. Can't say I'm disappointed as I already planned on upgrading to JL 6x9's for better clarity as the Focals are flat, just surprised that all I got was a 6 month run.
Pros: Handled bass well or so I thought. Pretty loud.
Cons: Flat, not warm

These went in the front doors of a Silverado, and absolutely transformed the sound! Deeper bass, MUCH better clarity and presence, nice highs. These are not crazy expensive speakers so I am very pleasantly surprised by just how good these sound, and how much they impacted the overall sound quality in a vehicle that has 4 other speakers.
Pros: clean deep base, clear highs without being painful.

excellent balance paired with focal expert performance PS 165Fs in front an Alpine s-w12d4 trunk mounted and the 690s in the rear deck. Power amps are JL audio 300/4v2 and Alpine S-A60M. head unit is Pioneer AVIC-W8500NEX in an 06 accord exl sedan. note: 5 stars belong to much higher level equipment
Pros: sale prices an advantage

Had these speakers installed somewhere long story short they sounded bad due to the crappy install I bought proper brackets and hardware for these and they sound awesome! They did take a while to break in I'm about a month in and it still feels like everyday they sound a little bit better. Running it off my stock head unit probably only sends like 20 watts to the speakers and they can handle up to 80RMS, I'm going to install an amp definitely soon though to get the full sound. I personally love my bass and these seem to deliver most of the time I'd give em a 7 out of 10 in bass being powered off the head and when looking at them being powered they hardly even flex and produce a good amount of bass I can only imagine what they sound like with a proper amp I would definitely recommend these to anybody. The overall sound is very balanced, very natural, and overall extremely crisp for being "low end" speaker in focals lineup of speakers definitely worth the price. btw I installed these on a Toyota Tacoma the speakers are at my like feet but still sound pretty directional due to the tweeter design, don't cheap out on the parts and install with proper equipment and you won't be disappointed!
Pros: Great sound that is very efficient at low power.
Cons: Had to order custom brackets

Put these in the rear doors of my 2018 Ram. They sounded awesome running straight from the factory head unit, but sounded even better when hooked up to the amp (Kicker Key Amp). They produce great bass with the amp, pretty good without. Installation was a breeze, about five minutes on each door with the wiring harness from Crutchfield. I am totally satisfied, and I'm a little picky. I also added a 10" sub under the seat, (separate amp from the Kicker Key Amp.). Sub might not have been necessary, but why not?
Pros: Great sound. Easy hookup.
