2018 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I ordered these speakers following a recommendation from a Crutchfield Advisor. They're good for what they are, 2 ohm speakers that are intended as an upgrade to crappy factory speakers with a factory system that is designed for 2 ohm speakers without losing significant volume capacity by replacing the factory speakers with 4 ohm speakers. The PowerBass speakers did provide a significant overall improvement that most listeners would be thrilled with. However, for my situation - improving the quality of sound in a 2018 Tacoma with the JBL 2 ohm audio system (with stock speakers that JBL should be ashamed of), the PowerBass speakers fell short of my expectations. Through hours of research on my own, I found that I could do much better by installing JBL Stadium GTO960C speakers in the front, and JBL GTO620 speakers in the rear. The JBLs are 2.5 ohm speakers, which means the loss in volume was acceptably low. Also, for those considering to replace the factory speakers in a 2016+ Tacoma with the JBL system, be aware that the frequencies sent to the front door speakers are filtered and usable by only a woofer. If you attach the crossovers that come with either the PowerBass or JBL speakers to the factory speaker connector, and then connect a tweeter to the crossover, the tweeter won't work. You need to either replace the vehicle stock tweeters or run new wires from the stock tweeters to the location where you intend to mount the new tweeters; I chose the latter.
Pros: Significant improvement over factory speakers on 2 ohm systems
