Sound amazing! These replaced Infinity Kappa 6x9's and wow! Crisp highs, great build quality. I've been into mobile audio since the 90's and back then my Sony Mobile ES deck I received from Crutchfield was and still is the best deck I have ever owned. Sony Mobile ES still impresses today ! Highly recommend !

Worth the wait

2005 Toyota RAV4

I'll start this by stating that I was being pushed to Morel or Focal components initially due to them being more obvious choices for tonal accuracy and overall quality. This set was chosen primarily for its soft dome tweeter and my experience with Sony ES product back in the 90's. The tweeter mount is straight-forward for my application- factory location in an old Rav4; however, the diameter of the tweeter casing demands modifying the factory tweeter panel to accomodate the larger size. The crossover looks well built but the connections are hazy and required a call into Crutchfield tech to get confirmation. Sony could do with more detailed instructions on the connectivity. Mids are built well and look of solid quality materials. Using a WetSounds 2 channel amp to power these until I hook up a Punch300 to make the finished project look cohesive. Initially, the tweeters were mildly bright even with the 0 db setting connection. Some EQ adjustments made a reasonable difference and although still a bit "thin" in the mid-range were vast improvements over a cheap MB Quart set I had installed prior(Very Poor Quality). Made some minor Xover adjustments after 2 weeks of play and my final determination is that these components delivered exactly what I wanted. Mid-range is on point, mid-bass (after X-over adjustments) satisifies and the high frequencies became VERY smooth. If you are looking for a moderately priced, high end component speaker set look no further.

Pros: Once broken in, and set properly these components come alive. Price. Build Quality. Smooth and responsive without being overly bright and lacking mid-range

Cons: X-over connections poorly explained Manual lacks the details

These speakers sound great and seems to be made very well. The sound detail is fantastic. The tweeter looks great, but it is quite wide due to the trim ring/grill that is permanently mounted to it. The set comes with 2 different surface mounts that work well. My only complaint is the crossover. It looks fantastic but it is very difficult to mount. There is only one fastener hole in the back plate which makes using wire ties not practical since the outside is smooth. Mounting the cross over under the dash or kick panel and then trying to install the 4 allen screws and posts is difficult. Overall, I am very happy with these speakers.

Pros: great sound quality, very detailed. seem to be very well built

Cons: crossover is very difficult to mount,

Superior Sound unbelievable clarity!

Just upgraded to these bad boys and WOW! I am VERY impressed with the sound these are able to produce. I actually had to pull over and make sure I had the tweeters set to -0 because they are much louder than my outgoing speakers so the extra highs are not needed in my Jeep. They do fit a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee VERY well did not have to modify anything other than popping a couple extra screw holes. Running on a Sony DSX-GS80 head unit with no amp. After months of waiting for the Sony Elevated Series to drop I am happy to say the wait was worth it!
