so far, they sound much better than the previous brand of speakers i installed. i figured, pioneer are one of the more popular brands out there which from what i know have a really good reputation, so why not get them. but, the pioneer sounded terrible. so far i just hooked up the drivers side door speakers, with the pioneer still in rear and passenger, and already, a huge improvement. i will be getting passenger side and rear speakers hooked up tomorrow. if it already sounds as good as it does with just the driver side hooked up, it is going to sound that much better when the passenger side and rear are hooked up.

Nice set of speakers!!! This is my 1st set of components and I was worried about finding a place for the crossover but it tucked away nicely inside the door. I went with the flush mount option for my tweeter and it looks and sounds awesome!!! I do think they may need more power to sound even better so I'll be adding a amp but for now they sound good out of the box.

Pros: Ease of installation. Great Quality

Cons: They sound good but may sound better with a amp

I've never had a set of component speakers with an external mounted crossover before. I really wasn't sure what to expect.. I ordered front and rear speakers for my Escort, both with dual crossovers and dual tweeters. And I already had a 12 inch Memphis sub to compliment these new speakers. So, even on my old Sony deck that has been well used for nearly 10 years, these bad boys made it sound like it was new! Clear sound, and because the dual stage crossover, they do pack a punch for a 5 inch speaker! And my rears are only a 5x7. And not to mention the installation was easy. Even though I am the type to go above and beyond on things like this, it was very easy and a no brainer to figure out. I just spent more money than I would like to admit on my other car for a bunch of stereo upgrades.. including new speakers.. I'm probably going to change those out again to these Memphis component speakers. Love em!

Theses speakers are awesome. They sound great in my tahoe, were east to install, and showed up on time. I have always been a fan of Memphis audio but for this being a low level component speaker thedy are incredible. The range of frequency is huge and they have a little bit of a kick to them even without an amplifier

Pros: Great sounding, compact, easy to mount.

Cons: Needed 3 holes to be poked through the interior of the door for proper mounting. But that is the only issue (not tough at all)

Awesome ratings and cheaper than anywhere else I could find [ Bryce  Jul 30, 2018 ]

Great?? [ Raymond  Mar 15, 2018 ]
A
These speakers come well recommended, and it appears they will easily install in my 1992 911 Porsche to give it better sound than the factory speakers. [ Guest  Jun 18, 2017 ]

Not sure about your mustang but they do come with multiple backings and can be completely removed from there casing without damaging. Can you post a picture of your current tweeters ?
[ Broderick  Aug 24, 2019 ]
Q
Do I need an amp for this system?
[ Doom120406  Oct 23, 2017 ]
4 answers
A
No you do not you can use an amp but you don't need it for them to work
[ Christopher R.  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
These speakers could run off of the built in amplifier from an aftermarket head unit, but you would be better served using a separate amplifier dedicated for the door speakers themselves.
[ Christopher  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
No, you can hook it into any system. But it will sound best with more wattage than a standard receiver will supply
[ Levi david  Oct 23, 2017 ]
A
No, but for the best possible sound it couldn't hurt. I have mine running off the stock bose amp in the car and it only pushes 25 watts per along with the other 27 watts from the deck. They sound amazing.
[ Broderick  Oct 23, 2017 ]
