They definitely are 10x better with a amp. Even if you don't have a amp they are still not bad. Super clear.

Replaced all 4 factory speakers with these and powered by a excelon xr900-5. This combination doesn't mess around. I don't play lows through them but the midst are strong and highs will hurt your ears all while being super clear no matter how high you go.
Pros: Super strong and yet clear sounding speaker. From upgrade to high end it'll get the job done.

I bought 4 of these speakers to replace the existing Bose speakers in my 2015 GMC Sierra Crew Cab pickup. I'm using the existing Bose head unit and driving the speakers with a Rockford T-600 4 channel amp. Perfectly clean sound that is much improved over the stock Bose speakers. Not as much mid-range as I had hoped but they are two -way speakers, so overall I would highly recommend them.
Pros: Excellent loud and clean sound.
Cons: Not as much mid-range.

I upgraded to these speakers from the Infinity Kappa 62.11i in a 2013 camaro I also added the JL Audio C5075-CT Tweeters and I must say that the soundstage is awesome. I must say that this is not just a upgrade from an oem speaker these are far better. The pc 165 is a speaker with warm mids and highs with no harsh highs and awesome bass for a speaker this size. I am driving these with the Alpine PDR-F50 Amp. You will not be disapointed with these speakers at all. The inifinity kappas sound good but the focal pc165 is at an audiophile level of sound quality over the Kappa. I regret not getting the focals from the beginning.
Pros: Awesome tight bass with very warm mids and highs without harshness. Very loud and clear also sound excellent at low volume with great sound reproduction. soundstage is totally awesome. More expensivel but the diffierence is there.

I decide to buy these, because I wanted the sound of having component speakers but I didn't wanna drill holes for the tweeters in my door panels. I didn't wanna advertise "come still me" .. they fit perfect in my front doors. the adjustable tweeter helps a lot. the sound is amazing, there is mid bass, the tweeter isn't so harsh, and I could hear the voice clearly. I gotta add, with the features on my H.U, the sound doesn't sound like its coming from my door panels, rather more from my windshield. you get what you pay for. Currently it is just powered though my H.U. a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X997, rear fill is a Rockford Fosgate Prime R1675X2 and a powered sub Rockford Fosgate Punch P300-10. I will amp the speakers later, i'll update yall on it.
Pros: great sound, adjustable angle on tweeter, love the mid bass, don't worry it doesn't hit the tweeter when the bass hits. overall great design.
Cons: the price is pretty high for a coaxial, but if u want something great soundin like a component speakers, and have it be hidden, this is the best way to go.
