Almost perfect

Crutchfield customer from Englishtown, NJ on 6/3/2019

2003 Volvo S40

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The speaker is great for the price and sounds great. Th only issue is the speaker doesn't sit flush in the opening of a '03 Volvo S40. It will require spacer rings. I ended up cutting the frame of the original speaker to retrofit the speaker into the door.

Pros: Does the job and sounds good.

Cons: Needs additional part (speaker spacer ring) or work to het the speaker to sit flush.

Sounds wonderful, full of midrange power. Installation was a breeze with pigtails provided. Instructions were very close to what I actually encountered. I recommend this product. HP

It will do the work for the price, but not too great.

EDWIN from RINCON, PR on 9/1/2018

2003 Honda Accord DX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

For the price are good option, you will get distortion after certain level of volume, it looks doesn't handle to much load even it said 35 Watts, 5 more than the others model at the same price. Since if for an old car, it will do the work, and I am using only the front ones, I just order the rear ones Pioneer to verify if I can get more volume (Loud) with both sides working , rear and front. Now is working these ones at the front.

Pros: Good clear sound at low level.

Cons: Too loud it gets distorted, distortion if gets to high or to much bass.

Replacement door speakers

Crutchfield customer from Augusta, KS on 8/27/2018

1997 Ford F-150

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My son, bless him, got his hands on some LARGE speakers for the door in his truck. Of course, the windows wouldn't go down all the way and when I asked him where the original speakers were (some I bought last year from Crutchfield) he didn't know. I am selling the truck and needed some that fit. These fit as they are supposed to. Now, the windows go all the way down like they should. As for how they sound, good enough for me but not good enough for him but in a couple days, it won't matter. Maybe the new owner will buy some new speakers from you guys.

Pros: Fit in the door properly. Loud enough for a mid 50 year old who wants the windows to go down all the way.

Cons: Not loud enough for a teenager.

Great sound quality

TJ from Pocatello, ID on 8/10/2018

2006 Subaru Impreza 2.5i

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I was looking around for some new speakers for my subaru recently as I just installed a new Pioneer head unit. It became clear pretty soon after that my old factory speakers just arent cutting it anymore. I had in mind what I wanted to spend for the front speakers because I dont have a woofer or an amp so Im just looking for some solid, loud and affordable replacements. And WOW...MTX sure knew what they were doing when they made these! I compared the Pioneer, JVC, Rockford Fosgate and MTX speakers that were all around the same price but I have always known MTX to be a good brand for car audio. With the red woofer cones and rubber surround, these cans pump out a very satisfying amount of mid-range and bass with no distortion. The highs are also well represented as well. I customized my EQ settings and these things can get flat out LOUD!! The install was fairly easy except that I did have to drill new holes in my door to get the included brackets to fit. Overall, this was the best I ever spent for this price point. MTX knows what they are doing. I am blown away by the quality of these. Extremely satisfied

I just installed these in my Tahoe. I knew one of the factory speakers was inoperative but did not know the other front door speaker was as bad as it was. These really sound good! It's not the boom boom bass sound we have all heard but just a good full sound which is much better than stock......I can wait to install the rear door speakers next. I can not imagine how god it will sound then

Pros: Great price and sound

Point Source Alignment: The recessed tweeter is concentrically aligned with the woofer cone, so sound radiates from the same point for both. This minimizes phase error and allows the sound field to be constant in all directions, improving time alignment.

Grille: The grille has a snap on trim ring that covers the mounting screws.

does it come with one or two speakers?

When I purchased my terminator 5 (5 1/4) they came as a pair. I also got the terminator 6 (6 1/2) also came as a pair to replace the aftermarkets that were in there. And I'm liking the choice I made on those speakers. I would purchase the same speakers to replace the factory speakers in my wife's van as well.
