Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed these on my 00 Celica GTS and wow what a difference. I mean of course it was way different than the 20 year old speakers I still had but the sound is just so clear and crisp. To install everything I did modify a few things such as the hole where the tweeter is mounted on the door panel and how the speakers attack to the brackets but other than that pretty easy job just find the cables that correspond to each, snip, and rewire.

Where's the bass

Crutchfield customer from Columbus, OH on 8/6/2020

2003 Acura 3.2TL

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

These are "ok" speakers. The vocals and highs are good, tight and running on deck power surprisingly clean. But, the mid-bass is nowhere close to keeping up with the vocals and highs. From 100hz -1500hz these need help. Going to try playing with the airspace on the door to see if it helps

Pros: Highs and vocals are really good

Cons: Bass response very weak

Great Upgrade

Michael from Madison, AL on 7/27/2020

2009 Honda Accord EX

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

Very pleased with this purchase to replace an older set of Kenwood coaxials I purchased from Crutchfield a few years ago. Install was easy and the improvement in sound quality is significant. The music now has true highs, mids and lows- with better imaging, clarity, etc. Installed in my daughters '09 Accord Sedan using only the power from the factory stereo. Also installed the Rockford 6.5" coaxials in the rear deck and already had a 10" Kicker in the trunk with a Sound Ordnance mono amp (all from Crutchfield). The upgrades are all "done" and we are very pleased with the results. Great service, selection, prices and timely shipping from Crutchfield as usual. Would strongly recommend to anyone.

2013 Honda Accord

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

OK, don't get me wrong, but these speakers are perfect for the person who wants clarity. BUT THEY SUCK WITH THE FACTORY HONDA SYSTEM. I blew my speakers within one week of owning them. I bought these specked for FACTORY RADIO UPGRADES. I did my research. I love hearing my bass, and I asked a few people that own them and they have their bass cranked up, but with my FACTORY HONDA RADIO the speaker blew. I can't get replacements now cause they are out of stock and they don't know when they are getting shipments in and was told they would be shipped out the day I called and NOPE GOT THE INVOICE AND said OUT OF STOCK. DIDNT EVEN HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL ME!!

Pros: Sound Quality

Cons: Legit everything else

Sad product from Rockford

Dean from PITTSBURGH, PA on 6/19/2020

2020 Subaru WRX STI

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

Very disappointing product from Rockford. At moderate volume the low frequency driver starts "thumping" as though its at the limits of it's excursion. The speaker's actual dimension only 5 1/4" ( I've bought enough products over the years to realize the actual size is always smaller but these are noticeably) , I pulled them out of the doors checking phase and any obstruction, replaced it an have the same issue. Unfortunately all of my packing material was thrown away prematurely or these would go back. Its sad to say the OEM kicker was a better product. Hopefully Crutchfield has a suitable replacement for these, I hate throwing money away.

Great speakers. They fit great in my BMW E46 with adapters. I had to modify the bracket for the tweeters. I made a YouTube video installing them "Andy the X Tech" https://youtu.be/0151Ujg944I

Pros: Sound at mid volume is Chrystal clear. Tweeters sound amazing. Great midrange speakers.

Cons: I was hoping for a little more bass. But sound is great. I know they need some time to break in and It could also be my stock head unit. I will be changing it soon. I was hoping to not add a sub. We will see. Rock on??

Disappointed

Crutchfield customer from Nashville, AR on 5/28/2020

2008 Toyota Tundra

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

They work alright but if you are replacing your OEM 6 by 9 tundra speakers with these then be prepared to be disappointed. They have a weak bass compared to stock and just don't sound good. I'm not not big into audio but these just lack the bass the oem have so if you are buying these for the bass then look elsewhere because it ain't here. I'm disappointed and I'm not happy with how my truck sounds so I will be looking for something to satisfy my needs. Again I'm not into audio that much but still expect to enjoy my music at a good decent quality which these to me don't deliver.

Pros:

Cons: Weak bass

Crutchfield response on 6/2/2020
We're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers. That's a common reaction when replacing car speakers. What you can expect to hear from a new speaker is better clarity and definition in the mids and highs. So your music will sound better and more lifelike, but you might not hear more bass. The only way to get more bass is to add more power, and if you want to keep the factory radio, that means adding an amplifier. A small (40-50 watts), 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo and three or four times the power of the typical factory radio. That'll improve all the sound, but you'll especially hear it in the fullness of the bass. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.

Good speakers and features

Crutchfield customer from Miamisburg, OH on 5/26/2020

2012 Volkswagen Jetta

Verified customer (What's this?)

These speakers sound good and the tweeters had a built in bass blocker so I didn't need to worry about a crossover. I wish I had bought these for my front doors too but I went with Sound Ordinance for them, and it required more work and splicing. These speakers have an extra set of connectors so you can plug your tweeters in without splicing. Glad I purchased these!

Pros: Bass blocker Extra connection for tweeters Sound

Added clarity to blown stock speakers

2016 Hyundai Veloster

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

One of the stock speakers were blown on the passenger side so I picked these as the replacements. They have a nice clean sound with the factory amp and I was able to wire the tweeter in the stock location so all of the sound comes across just like from the factory. Good quality and easy to mount with the adapters. Highly recommended for a quick swap and cleaner sound over factory.

Pros: Clean, Well Priced, Good design

Amazing budget speakers. I highly recommend these for any end user that wants a high quality sound, with a low cost. I doubt they will find anything significantly better. Fosgate quality, as expected.

Pros: Price, mounting depth.

Crutchfield customer from Lenoir City, TN on 5/17/2020

2000 Toyota Tacoma

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

Got this set for a 2000 Tacoma. Replacing a 20 yr old OEM system. Suppose to fit in the door or rear panel speakers either one. Well, as I took the door panels off it looked almost impossible for the tweeters to mount in the door at all? I am a rookie audio installer but the space where a tweeter would fit is in the door pocket and I wasn't going to block up my door pocket. And that is less than optimal place for tweeters also. So, I mounted them external on the A pillar. It was most optimal and only way to get them on the pillar was external mount. I didn't use the hardware from RF, I used my own. They sound good, but installation was not as easy as I had hoped for what was factory install. My OEM system didn't have tweeters so I added them. I'm happy with them so far. I added sound deading material to my doors as well to help with sound.

Pros: Good Value

Cons: Chinch Pin screws are poor set up to me. I used my own hardware to secure the speaker to the new speaker mount panel.

Installation wasn't bad. Had to drill new holes in door panels for the tweeters. Was walked right through it using tech support! Drilled a 1-3/4" hole and rounded it out a bit to make it bigger then hot glued it in place. Really love the sound in my 2005 Silverado, still using the factory radio. Sounds soo much better! Tech support was fantastic. I damaged a speaker installing it and they even sent me a replacement set no charge!

I have a 2000 Camry and I was down to one functioning speaker in the rear due to deterioration of the factory speakers.

These really upgraded the sound in my Titan. So much more clarity than the stock speakers. I was quite surprised how well my head unit was able to power these. It's nice to be able to run some component speakers without an amp.

Pros: Excellent sound and clarity, easy install, no amp required with aftermarket head unit.

Cons: No tweeter bracket available for my Titan, but a bracket is easy to fab up.

You cannot beat the sound for this price. I was not expecting as much clarity with these speakers, but I have been proved wrong. I bought 2 sets of these, one for my car that has a sub, and one set for my daughter, who doesn't have a sub. A sub really brings everything together, but they are not too shabby on their own. I think adding an amp would really bring these guys to life. Great set of speakers if you are upgrading.

Pros: Easy installation, and the sound is great

I purchased these for my lower fairings in my Harley Street Glide and am BEYOND impressed. I have never ran component speakers and the R165-S have a clear and crisp sound. I am not running off of an amp bet I don't see any need for one as well. I would strongly recommend these as any speaker upgrade.

Great upgrade kit for a car that has standard factory speakers. Only negative is the integrated crossover in the tweeter leaves no adjustment aside from the head unit. Paired with the stock Honda Civic Sport head unit requires treble to be almost tuned completely down to avoid harsh highs. Could be the speakers - could be the head unit. Overall good upgrade for factor 4 speaker system.

Pros: Price, ease of install, nice lengths of wire.

Cons: A bit harsh on the highs.

Do they fit? Yea!

Mike from Clifton Park, NY on 10/20/2019

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

First: these sound awesome. Second: The mounting brackets that came with them left a very large gap around between the edge of the bracket and the factory mounting hole. (2013 Veloster Re:Mix) This was easily remedied by removing the factory speaker from the factory body shroud and attaching the new speaker directly to that big plastic shroud. Speaker fits WAY better and sounds even better. Third: for the same car, Crutchfield advertises that these tweeters DO NOT FIT (Surface mount only). I found this information to be 79.6598344852% incorrect. After removing the RF tweeter from it's pretty little housing, I found that the grill cover for the factory tweeter lined up almost perfectly with the grill cover on this tweeter. Lay the RF tweeter in place, aim it a teeny bit, and then hit it with some hot glue and...BAM!! It's almost as though it were meant to be! It's still hidden nicely in the factory tweeter mount, and I get the nice clear sound I was looking for without having to add what I consider to be quite unsightly pods to my dash or pillars.

Pros: Sound Great Fit amazingly well in factory locations Sound Great

Cons: Had to completely destroy the factory speaker to make it into a speaker mount, but hey, I was replacing it anyway because it was blown, so not really a huge con really.

Pretty great speakers so far. Had them about 4 months now and definitely am enjoying the sound quality. Installing them was a bit of a hassle, but that is less on the speakers themselves and more on my specific vehicle. I had to break off the 4 corner brackets to get them to fit in properly. And I had to completely rebuild my tweeter set up to make these ones fit into place. Still, after the headache of install, these have been great speakers.

Pros: Good sounds quality

Cons: Tweeters will require some finagling

Zero base, disappointed w Customer Service for recommending these

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

I'm new to installing speakers on my own, and I was told by Crutchfield customer service that these speakers would provide an excellent sound stage and would have decent base. They don't. These speakers are barely better than stock in the mids and highs, and they sorely disappoint when it comes to any base whatsoever - there is zero base. If you have a sub, these speakers might work for you, but if you don't, stay away from these. I'd like to return them for something else, but I threw away the boxes when I installed the speakers, thinking they would eventually "break in".

Pros: Good highs and mids

Cons: Terrible lows, no base at all. Difficult installation instructions, shouldn't have bought these.

So I was excited to get these as I like Rockford Fosgate. That said these are really disappointing and just not worth the money at all. These sound like my stock speakers. I would spend more money on others. I would not recommend these to anyone I care about.

Pros: Clear sound

Cons: Sound like stock speakers. Not worth the price

Crutchfield response on 8/28/2019
Jesse, we're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers. That's a common reaction when replacing car speakers. In the case of these Rockford Fosgate speakers, they're going to need more power than your factory speakers needed in order to sound their best. They likely won't sound good at all on a factory stereo. You'll either need to add an aftermarket stereo or an amplifier (a small, 40-50 watts, 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo and three or four times the power of the typical factory radio) or return these and get speakers with a higher sensitivity. Either way, we'll be glad to help - just give us a call. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.

Low end speaker, but better than stock. Descent for the price. Replaced a blown stock speaker in my JKU sound bar. The tweeters do no fit in the existing position and the mounts supplied are only for the 6 1/2" speakers. If you intend on replacing the 6 1/2" and the tweeters, you'll need to buy/fab a mount for the tweeters.

Pros: Price

For the price, you can't beat these. Fosgates have a solid reputation and I thought it was a typo when I saw the price because quality = expensive but Crutchfield came through. I didn't use the grilles on any of these components but they're nice. I replaced my dash corner speakers with these and if you toss the OEM tweeter, but keep the bracket, they'll fit perfectly with only a minimally noticeable grill "hump" when using OEM grilles.

Custom adapters needed for Jeep JKU

Brent from Santa Barbara, CA on 6/13/2019

2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

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

The biggest issue with these speakers is that they are not really 6.5" speakers. They are more like 5-1/4, to be honest. I installed them in a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon (without factory Alpine stereo) and it took a bit of work and some 1/8" hardboard to make adapters for the tweeters. The supplied plastic adapter plates didn't line up very well, so I fabricated some of those out of hardboard, too, though it wasn't strictly necessary. Also the tweeters had to be spliced into the factory wiring harness by cutting off the connectors and using crimp on butt connectors. Sound-wise they represent a big improvement over the stock paper cones - the mid bass is much more punchy and the highs are super bright (a bit too bright for my taste). I lined the plastic speaker boxes with Dynamat and stuffed them with acoustic batting, which helped a lot, and I used foam gaskets to make an airtight seal between the main speakers and the speaker boxes. They probably need to break in a bit for a true assessment, but so far I'm happy with them but not "blown away". Volume level is about the same as the factory speakers with my Sony AX-200 head unit.

Pros: Great price

Cons: Small driver for a 6.5" speaker

Rockford Fosgate R165-S

Crutchfield customer from Madison, GA on 6/13/2019

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

I originally was going to give this speaker set a three star rating, but I still had the factory radio in my 2008 Toyota 4Runner. I listen to primarily music that has a lot of bass, and that has deep and low bass. I had the JBL Synthesis system that was factory, and I was truly impressed with how good that system sounded with it being stock. The issue that I have with these speakers is that they are great in sound for the mid's and the high's, but the low's are awful compared to what i was used to with the JBL system I had. I recently put in a Pioneer MVH 210EX, and that GREATLY improved the sound quality of that low bass. Even now though, if I have the bass turned up all the way, there is often distortion with the vocals and the low bass. I assume that my complaint is mainly power related because I know that my new radio has a higher power output. My main takeaway from this is that if you like music that features a lot of bass in it, either don't get these or make sure you have an aftermarket radio or an amp (I have a factory amp). If I had to do it over again, I would not get these speakers because of my personal taste, I would look specifically for speakers that I knew had very good bass. That being said, I am satisfied with the replacement because my speakers were all dying, but I don't quite have the thick low bass that I crave.

Pros: Clear sound on the mid's and high's

Cons: Bass is distorted if you turn it up too loud, and the bass overall is lacking in my opinion, even with additional power input.

The mids and lows are great. Plenty of bass without losing any clarity. The highs from the tweeters were a bit muted, but that changed when I installed an aftermarket stereo with a little more power.

They were very easy to install but spending this much on 4 speakers that suppost to be better than stock. My stock speakers are 10x times better. These things are so freaking distortaed. When I get the time there do no g out and the stock speakers are going back in. Junk junk junk

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Stock speakers sound so much more better

Crutchfield response on 4/3/2019
Aftermarket speakers, like these Rockford Fosgate component speakers, 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. But as always, whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.

Installed in my 02 Yukon XL w/o Bose, with factory woofer today. Speakers sound great, have enough kick for what I'm listening. Came with brackets and wiring harness to install the speakers , but need modified the old tweeter to fit the new one. And the staff were really helpful. They answered all my questions

Pros: Came with wiring harness and brackets to install it. And they really helpful.

Cons: Have to modified the old tweeter to fit the new one. Just have to cut the old one off and used the existing brackets for it. Really easy modifications.

I'm new to the car audio world, I thought that installing new speakers would be really hard but Rockford made it incredibly easy to install. I absolutely love the sound, all I can say is wow! Everything is so much more crisp and the speakers produce a lot more sound now. Not only can they pick up the really low notes but they can also pick up the really high notes thanks to the wider range of the speakers wattage. I'm definitely happy with the outcome, I will be definitely sticking with Crutchfield for my future builds.

Pros: Sleek Easy installation Amazing sound

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

This set of components are pretty good for the price you pay for them. The clarity of the vocals are definitely noticeable compared to the 4runner's factory speakers. I originally swapped the factory speakers for Rockford Prime R1525x2 coaxials, which was also an improvement from stocks, but I felt that the sound wasn't very noticeable, probably also due to the very low location of where the speakers are on the door panels. So I decided to change them out again, this time for components and it's definitely an improvement from the coaxials. I mounted the tweeters towards the top of rear door panels, facing towards the rear seat passenger and its much more clear and crisp when sitting in back.

Pros: Very easy to i stall with plug and play adapter that Crutchfield includes with purchase, Clear vocals at higher volume than factory

Cons: Some minor modifying needed to install tweeters, unless you want them flush with panel...then you'll need to cut some larger holes

I have had these for over a year now and I wasn't expecting a whole lot out of them to begin with. They are a straight replacement of factory speakers with no additional amp so I didn't have high expectations. The speakers seem to be getting worse over time. I thought the speaker was coming lose in one of my doors because of the bad sound. I took the door off and no, just bad sounding speakers. I really think I may have to get something else. I hate to do that in a 10-year-old car with 100,000 miles but I don't think I have much choice.

Scott from Westminster, MD on 11/19/2018

1992 Acura Integra

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

The speakers themselves? Amazing. 5 stars, they sound fantastic. The tweeters? Couldn't have a worse design. I spent hours trying to get a tight fit on my door panels. I even resorted to trying to use my 3/4 kicker tweeters I had laying around but the hole I drilled was already too big. Ending up having to hold it in with GORILLA GLUE just to keep it from falling out until I could order and install some Alpine Tweeters of the same size with a screw on back plate.

Pros: Speakers are amazing. Love the sound, great bass. They'd probably sound even better on a 4 channel amp

Cons: These tweeters have such a poor mounting design that I had to use gorilla glue just to keep them in place until my Alpine tweeters with a screw on back showed up. There is NO way to get these tweeters to mount tight and flush, the brackets that come with them supposedly "snap on". Even if you DO get them to stay, you're gonna have a gap. But most likely you'll get one side off, the other side will pop out and it'll fall off repeatedly

Pick something else. Factory 16 f150 base speakers sound better. It's not a true 6.5, it barely measures 6" on the outside mounting flange. No true crossovers tweater is really light and chincy. I spoke to a rep and am returning these and giving some kickers a shot.. all doors were fully dynamat extreme wrappedll). Wish I could leave 5 stars for the crutchfield support staff, they are the best Find somewhere to hear these in person if you dont believe me

Pros: Good for replacing blow out 20 year old stock speakers maybe?

Cons: Everything. Sad that Rockford even put there name on these.

Needed to replace the speakers in a Jaguar xk8 convertible. I wanted to keep the car as original as possible so I needed to retain the head unit and the wiring. With the R165 component systems I was able replace the door speakers and the separate higher mounted twitter. I also replaced speakers in the rear with the PUNCH two way speakers. The original radio has enough power to drive all the speakers and they sound very good. Granted the original speakers were trash but the sound I am getting from the speakers with the old radio compares equally with newer high end systems. I am only giving 4 stars because the Fosgate speakers are not water proof and that could be a problem with a convertible.

Unsure at First, But Better Now

Paul from Waverly, VA on 8/15/2018

2011 Hyundai Santa Fe

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

I bought these speakers to replace the stock speakers in my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe (basic unit without factory sub woofer). The old paper speakers were getting unbearable after seven years, but I did not want to break the bank on a system upgrade for this particular vehicle and I knew I also wanted to amp the system and add a small EQ for more clarity and control. These RF speakers appeared to be just what I was looking for. Installation was relatively easy. The hardest parts were drilling out the rivets holding my stock speakers, and fashioning a harness for the new tweeters to fit in the stock locations. Once installed, I was initially unimpressed with the sound of the speakers. The highs were bright and crisp, but seemed to overwhelm the muddy, non-responsive bass and low mid-range sound. Unlike others, I resisted the impulse to remove the speakers immediately. That seems to have been a good move. After a few days, the speakers have worn-in some and have become more responsive. The stiffness of the bass has subsided, and the sound has become more full. I ordered RF three-ways for the back doors, and I am hoping that they, along with the amp and EQ, once installed, will balance out the sound even more. If you have the same experience, resist the temptation to remove the speakers and give them a week or so to gain some flexibility. You may be pleasantly surprised. I gave these speakers 4 stars because of the good clarity and improved sound. I will update later.

Pros: Clear, crisp highs Ample wiring included for tweeter location

Cons: Inadequate low frequency response out of the box produced muddy bass and lower mid-range.

2009 Jeep JK X 2dr, stock HU, no top Bit disappointed in these. Not all that much better than stock, using the OE base HU. All the forums I read on upgrades said add poly fill to speaker enclosures, that did not work at all with these. The low end was muffled and cut off to the point of being unusable. Removed the poly fill and better, but still not a huge improvement over stockers. Run no top and the volume at +18 most of the time.

the speaker sound good. but a little weak for my taste I'm probably going to go with a different speaker next time.

Pros: They sound okay I probably would go with a different speaker next time though. they're just a little weak for what I was expecting.

Cons: had to modify screw holes so they would fit.

Too much treble for my taste.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I like real rock-n-roll and punk and these are just too tinny for me. I am sure all the aftermarket audio these days is for Hip Hop and EDC, where all that repetitive high hat needs to be heard. The speakers are of great quality for the money, but for my taste the highs with this set up are crazy high and the mids seem a bit muddy. I am not hating at all on RF as I have two sets of Fosgate 3-ways in the rest of the vehicle with a powered sub and they sound great.

Pros: Quality Made

Cons: Too much treble for the music I listen to.

These speakers are a great buy. They pump out a lot of sound for their size considering they replaced 6X9's. They sound a lot better then the stock speakers and don't cost an arm and a leg.

Pros: The free installation kit was very handy. Thank you Crutchfield!!!

Cons: Since these were component speakers, there was some modifications that had to be made to the installation kit, but nothing too difficult.

These speakers sound great! They are replacing some old JL TR600-CXi coaxals as I wanted to upgrade to components and the JL's were getting old. I'm not at all diappointed. Perfect fit using the same SA69 adaptors. I like that these newer speakers have the 6.75" mounting wings so they can be used in 6.5 or 6.75 openings, unlike many others.

Pros: Perfect fit, loud clear sound

Cons: Rated power handling

Nicely made speakers that look like high quality. The high and mid bass sound pretty clean. However, the speakers have a tinny sound to them which to me is not very pleasing and very hard to adjust to an acceptable level. The bass is not poor but my factory speakers were better. These were suggested to me by a Crutchfield representative and he missed the mark.

Whomever designed the diameter of the tweeter never performed a flush mount installation. Good luck in finding a knockout punch/die that will cut a 46.4mm / 1.82 inch hole, as I spent more time than needed wondering around looking for something to clean cut this hole in the rear door panel. As they now are in a box on a shelf in the garage. Also the speaker is not a 6-1/2" it is 5" speaker and doesn't sound very good...

Jeep Unlimited up-grade

Ronald from Vero Beach, FL on 1/1/2018

2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

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

Up graded factory speakers in 2012 Jeep Unlimited. Has factory component speakers in front. Was hard to install as I was keeping factory head, amps and wiring. Installed mid woofer using supplied rings after adding some sound deadening material in the kneee panel speaker boxes. Also added some poly-fill in back of factory box in the knee panel. Then removed the factory tweeter and trimmed half of the tabs off from the back of factory tweeter grill to allow the replacement tweeter to fit nicely. Added a touch of epoxy on each of the three trimmed tabs to help hold the tweeter. Clipped the factory wire harness and wire to the replacement tweeter. After snapping the factory tweeter grill back into place on the top of the dash and a few screws installing the lower mid-woofers it was ready. Major up-grade from factory speakers using factory head and factory amps. These speakers coupled with the previously installed sub-woofer amp powering twin 12" subs. What a great combo with a stock look up front. Was worried the tweeter wouldn't fit well into the small tweeter pod on the corners of the dash of the Jeep. Don't hesitate because they do with just a little alteration to the stock tweeter grill. They sound great for a super price. Major clarity in highs and mids compared to the factory paper speakers. It is not a difficult project and a great improvement.

Pros: Major improvement from stock speakers. Much clearer in the highs and mid fill in nicely. Was easy to install.

Cons: None for the low cost.
