A
One of my vehicles is a vehicle not listed on your site. It's a 1966 Dodge Dart GT convertible. The application is tricky as the radio opening is not standard and there is only one factory 4"x10" dash speaker. Not wanting to alter the stock appearance I opted to fabricate a bracket in the footprint of the factory single dash speaker providing two 3.5" holes in the bracket so I could install two 3.5" speakers and have true stereo, maintaining stock appearance & not hacking up any interior panels [ Chris  Jun 21, 2017 ]

It was one of the few choices that fit my vehicle. Also the warranty is nice [ Viet  May 26, 2017 ]

A
fit and recommendation [ Glenvall  Oct 02, 2016 ]
A
I chose these because I put the same set in my wife's truck and they sound fantastic. Now I am going to put them in my son's car. The price was a big part in the purchase too. I could have bought cheaper speakers from Amazon or Walmart, but they would not have the as good of a sound as these do and they would break like the last set. Finally, I liked that they fit a wide range of stereo and still perform well. [ Craig  Sep 19, 2016 ]

good product for the money [ gerald  Jun 27, 2016 ]

5 questions already asked

Q
Is the included crossover passive or powered?
[ sc4ryb3ar  May 05, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
They are passive. People debated if SO products were junk or not and they most certainly are not. They were designed in England and use the same speaker MFG as Rockford Fosgate. After 2 years my 2 sets I have in my car are going strong. Hope this helps.
[ Michael  May 07, 2019 ]
A
The crossover is passive. I have had 2 of the crossovers fail. The speakers are great, I replaced the crossover with some EBay ones and the work great
[ Damon  May 05, 2019 ]
Q
Can these be mounted upside down / overhead? Do I need to run them through an amplifier or can I connect the crossover to my deck directly (it has 17 watts RMS CEA-2006/55 peak x 4 channels)?
[ SteveNC  Mar 27, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
I believe it can be mounted upside down and i didn't have to run an amplifier just the crossover and it has enough juice to bump the bass and treble. To be honest i am excited by to sound performance hope this answer your question tho Thanks
[ EUGENE  Mar 30, 2018 ]
A
As far as I know they can be mounted however you wish, but upside down will cause them to fire sound away from the listener, and yes you can hook them up using deck power only, good luck

Yes to all. Up to you how you want to run them and up to you how you want it powered.
[ Roland  Mar 27, 2018 ]
A
As far as mounting them upside down i should be no problem and i would say an amp so u can get the whole performance they were built for if not its kindve a waste of money even if u don't listen to them loud atleast you know you can if u want to
[ Mario  Mar 27, 2018 ]
A
You can mount it upside down but if I was to do such a thing I would want to keep the woofer as close to the tweeter as I could you will have better imaging as far as running deck power it will work but to get the full potential from your speakers a bit of power from a separate amp would be better.Enter
[ STUART  Mar 27, 2018 ]
Q
I have the JVC XD-230 in a 2000 Suburban with factory amp non bose system. Will these require an amp?
[ JD_Programmer  Mar 17, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
These are efficient enough to work with the 22 watts RMS x 4 amplifier built-in to your JVC head unit. However, they would ultimately sound better with an external higher wattage amplifier driving them. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
