Good for entry level. Not enough bass though.

Good entry-level speakers. They were easy to install and are a good bang for the buck. I only wish the bass coming through was a bit stronger. Too many highs and not enough lows, but what can you expect. They're pretty good.

Pros: Good price, quality build and easy to install.

Cons: Lack of bass. Too high of treble.

Decent speakers but they then to be a little buzzy as installed in my GMC Sierra. The midrange on talk shows needed to be toned down.

Pros: Priced right

Cons:

Product Research

Features

Balanced Dome Tweeter: Each speaker has a PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) balanced dome tweeter. PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging. A semi-dome tweeter has a dome placed inside a cone; balanced dome tweeters are semi-dome tweeters with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the tweeter.
