Nice Sound. Very responsive. I like to listen to a variety of music without super bass. Installed into 2008 F150 Supercrew w/factory sub. Used the supplied Metra Adapters and the JBL Starfish adapter for the Tweeter. Slid the crossovers into the door panels under the switches. Eventually when I add an amp I'll put them on the back wall. Easy install.

They are great so far off headunit power without the crossovers but will be even better amped with the crossovers. Managed to fit the tweeters in the A pillars stock location.
Pros: Great midrange/midbass and smooth highs
Cons: Kinda pricey

My car, a 2015 Ford Taurus, can tale a 5x7 or a 6x8 in the front doors. These 6x8's fit just fine, and the tweeters do in fact fit into the factory pillar location. This made the installation just that much easier. I've not owned JBL speakers in quite some time but I was quickly reminded that I do very much like the sound of JBL's, as I had some years ago in another car. One bit that I've not fully figured out - I am running these components with the factory radio (non-Sony Sync) and no external amp. I predicted that I would not be happy; that I would have to get an amp before I was satisfied. However, either my factory radio has decent power, or else these speakers with the somewhat low impedence just really produces big sound efficiently. I am getting plenty of bass, but of course it would be far more intense if I were running 100W per channel. I cannot think of anything negative to say about these. I'm sure they would benefit with an amp but they are surprising crisp with just my Ford factory radio.

I installed these speakers on a 2014 F-150 Supercrew with a factory (non-Sony) headunit. The result is amazingly good sound throughout the entire volume band. Absolutely no distortion what so ever. I knew that I wanted to keep the factory head unit so I needed a speaker that would pull the most from the power available in a stock head unit. These speakers are 2-1/2ohm and do utilize maximum potential from the stock unit. I highly recommend these JBL Stadium components. The build quality is excellent.
Pros: Pulls the most power available from head unit with great sound.
Cons: I didn't buy them earlier. Lol

I bought and returned the Kicker KSS 5 1/4" component and the Morel 5' x 7" component sets before settling on this JBL component set. This JBL set has the best woofer, by far, with the Kicker second, in my opinion. But the Kicker and the Morel are not 6" x 8" woofers. The Kicker and the Morel had slightly more flexible tweeters and the Morel had the best tweeter mounting system. But this one on the jBL is fine. The JBL has a 2.5 ohm resistance instead of 4 ohm, so that pulls power out of the amp. THis is the highest quality set of the three. The woofer has real binding posts for the wire and a solid, sturdy basket and cone. The morel quick disconnect post was not satisfactory. It bent. Jbl best, Kicker second and Morel third. In my opinion.
Pros: Woofer is high quality.
Cons: Tweeter is a bit bright and does not have -3 db setting.

My first install with this type of speaker. Well worth the time to install. Sounds great.
Pros: Plenty of sound with new Sony hu.
Cons: None really. A little cutting to fit the box.

Installed in the front of my 2014 F150... powered with a diamond audio 4 channel HEX series amp and I couldn't be happier!!! I've had focal and jl component sets in the past and I didn't want to spend that kind of money currently. This component set is an awesome middle of the road option. Paired with the coaxial JBL set in rear doors and my truck sounds amazing. Shallow JL audio TW3s subs to complete the F150. Don't mess around with signal processing or trying to use the factory Ford crap either, get a new head unit with the I data link maestro dash and you will be happy. Had to learn that the hard way
Pros: Sound Quality Loud No speaker adapters needed for 2014 F150
Cons: None as of yet
