Hertz DCX 165.3 reviews
Wonderful quality in an affordable package with these. They feel more expensive than they are. Unfortunately if you're looking to replace OEM speakers with these, you're going to need an amp.
Pros: High quality Excellent wound reproduction High sensitivity
Cons: Need more power to really use them

I just had a pair of these installed today to replace a pair of Rockford Fosgate R165X3's that I purchased from Crutchfield. These actually sound much better and of course they are twice as much. It's definitely worth the extra money. Lets face it. The price isn't bad even on a budget build for a pair of 6 and 1/2 speakers. Very crisp highs. They have a good signal that I would almost compare to HD radio. I went ahead and ordered the 5 and 1/4 DCX from Crutchfield to replace my rear speakers as well. Crutchfield is my favorite online retailer when it comes to stereo equipment. Their customer service is top notch. Very friendly staff.
Pros: Crisp sound. Not overpriced especially for being Hertz.
Cons: I don't have more of them. LOL

I cannot believe how freekin hard these 6.5 hit, also clear & crisp & (((loud))). I have them running parallel with Alpine S 6.5's for rear door and tailgaite of 4Runner (driven by 85W RMS Alpine Amp), along with 300W self powered 10" sub. Both sets of 6.5 speakers sounded ok at first, but i thought the Hertz were distorting on lows... then I soundproofed the rear gate and sealed all the holes (the rattling, which I mistook for distortion, stopped), all of the sudden these Hertz suckers started THUMPING hitting crisp highs, huge clean base, great mids... They actually hit so hard I could barely hear the subwoofer anymore... I couldn't believe it (Alpines were also helping but Hertz started to really shine). I also have Hertz 6x9 (uno line) in the front seat door, but these 6.5 now have even more base for some reason. I'm a believer now! I recommend!!! make sure you install them properly, use good clean power (amp), sound proof & seal the door well, then you may have a excellent experience. Funny thing... I almost ripped out and returned the entire system because the "big blue box" installer totally messed up the amp input (low input setting vs high 6V RCA input causing huge static sound), and messed up x-over settings (they crossed over the 6.5s as though they were just tweets)... Once I found the issue's, the sound got really good, and then became EXCELLENT after soundproofing the tailgate (this allowed the Hertz to perform to their potential).
Pros: Crisp Clear Highs, Nice Mids, Great Lows... EXTREMELY LOUD AND CLEAN

I bought these plus the Hertz Deici tweeter and the Deici 6x9 3-way to install in a Sprinter van keeping the stock head unit. These sound great and work well with the stock head unit because they are so efficient. There is more volume than I can use even in the van, which is not the quietest of vehicles. The 6x9s are in the rear. The tweeter is a drop-in for the stock tweeter in an NCV3 Sprinter and this 165.3 2-way fits into the door with a 1" thick spacer ring -- no trimming of the door panel is required and you keep the stock look. Hint: disconnect the stock center speaker.
Pros: Great sound throughout the range.
Cons: None really....

Very precise crisp clean sound, very good bass response. By far one of the top 3 speakers made in my opinion.
Pros: Great price, awesome sound, very well built, large magnet, strong bass response.
