OEM replacement, not an upgrade.

Crutchfield customer from Severna Park, MD on 6/6/2019

2019 Ford Transit Passenger

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

These sound exactly like the OEM front door speakers in my 2019 Ford Transit. If you're looking for a replacement for worn out OEM speakers, these are fine, but they're definitely NOT an upgrade. For the price, I expected a bit more, especially since they're slightly larger in diameter, heavier, and have better quality tweeter material than the OEM speakers. There's a possibility that it's not the speaker - my stock head unit may simply not be capable of taking advantage of this speaker's potentially better performance.

Pros: Impressive on paper

Cons: Not impressive under actual use.

Crutchfield response on 6/10/2019
Aftermarket speakers, like these Hertz, often require more power to be effective. Factory radios often don't have the power output to do aftermarket speakers justice. When distortion occurs, many times it can be mistaken as a problem with the speakers, but it can actually be a weak amplifier, like the one in a factory radio, having trouble delivering the power that the speakers require. This is when upgrading the radio or adding an amp really allow speakers to sound their best.

I don't think those are mid-range speakers that I asked for not as tough as my Kickers were, they don't put out as much bass.

Crutchfield customer from Lula, GA on 3/14/2019

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Bought these to complement the 170.3 component system from hertz and they sound the same as the component system. My review for those, could be used for this speaker set as well. No body had a better price. Customer service is always great. However I do wish the bass was a little better from these. The speakers are a little pricey.

Pros: Great customer service, lowest price

Cons: Feel like they were a little pricey, bass is not that strong

Features

PEI Dome Tweeter: Each speaker has a PEI (Poly-Ether-Imide) dome tweeter. PEI is a polymer film that produces a wide soundstage to improve imaging.

Woofer: The woofer cones are made of water-repellent treated paper.

Size Classification Note: Some manufacturers call this size speaker a 6-1/2". Because it requires a larger cutout than a standard 6-1/2" speaker, Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-3/4". Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
