Had a pair of component Boston Acoustics years ago in my old car and have fond memory of them. Ordered these on faith in favor of Alpine and Infinity when the time came to replace the rear stock speakers in my 2005 Forester. I don't regret my choice of these over the go-to names mentioned at all; these are every bit as good as the more popular mades and then some. The sound from these are very balanced across the band. The highs don't call out for attention, mids are standout, and bass is respectable for this size. Overall a very smooth pair of speakers well deserved of the Boston name known best for home speakers. More Boston in the future for me.
Pros: Very balanced sound. Mids excel. Great price.
Cons: None even when compared to the more popular brands.
