amazing little speakers
I bought these Kenwoods over 2 years ago and they still sound as great as ever. I first had them in my '86 190 running on a JVC deck and they sounded great. I then put them in my '95 9000 and ran them on an Alpine CDM-9803 and they sounded terrific. I now have them hooked up to a 50X4 channel RMS Memphis amp and these little speakers handle the power surprisingly well. They will distort with a healthy dose of bass, but they aren't for pounding bass. I have them on high-pass filter and they have amazing detail. I compared them to the Pioneer, Boston FX series, and JL TR series 4in speakers and these Kenwoods top them all. the JL's have great bass response, but the Kenwoods have much better highs as well as good bass. The Pioneers lack the richness of the Kenwoods and don't take the power as well. The boston 4s don't have as good bass response as the Kenwoods. I highly recommend these speakers especially if you are looking for high sound quality and longevity.
