Memphis Audio 15-MCX52 reviews
I can say for the money these sound fantastic. If wanting to add component level sound but not wanting to do custom install, I would highly recommend this set of speakers. Feeding them 45 watts rms from amp, also if using head unit power will suffice, but these really shine on more power. Highs are great and details in music are there from top to bottom. Only issue I heard was bass is lacking but in defense these are only 5.25, which usually are only good for about 90hz and up. People shouldn't try and get low freq. out of anything less than an 8in. woofer in my opinion. Mids are clear and precise, you can hear the lows but again if wanting the punch, it is lacking. Overall a great set and hard to beat!!!
Pros: detailed highs, mids are crystal clear and pronounced, excellent soundstage and projection
Cons: bass is lacking but expecting being that it is only 5.25, cutoff around at least 100hz but in my opinion 125hz

Tweeters: The aluminum dome tweeters swivel, so they can be aimed for optimum imaging.
Crossover: The crossovers are separate components with the output wires attached. The tweeter output level can be changed from flat to -3 dB by moving a jumper pin inside each crossover. The slope is 12 dB/octave and the crossover point is 5 kHz. The inputs are screw terminals that will accept bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.24" wide. The output wires have quick slides attached that easily connect to the terminals on the speakers (0.110" common -, 0.205" tweeter +, and 0.25" woofer +). The crossover dimensions are:
- Width: 2-3/4"
- Height: 1-1/8"
- Depth: 1-3/4"
M-Clip: The crossovers can be mounted to the back of the speaker magnets, or elsewhere, using the M-Clip brackets. When mounted to the speakers, the crossover adds approximately 1-1/8" to the depth and 1-3/8" to the width of one side of the magnet.
