Tweeters too bright. Where's the Mid Bass?
2014 Subaru Impreza WRX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Disappointed. Very disappointed. These came highly recommended but the tweeters were way too bright and at times it felt like all i could hear was the tweeters and some midrange. Mid bass felt non existent at times. I ended up returning them and purchasing the Morel Virtus 602 6 1/2 instead and i am MUCH happier with the sound so far. Of course the speaker is double the price but honestly it was really worth the upgrade. The tweeters don't sound so bright and harsh like the JL and it strikes a good balance. I will say that Crutchfield is fantastic and they are going to take the JL's back no questions asked. I'm glad I bought with them. One more note: In order to get the tweeters to fit in my 2014 WRX i had to cut parts of the bracket down with a dremel to make the tweeters fit. (I had to severely modify the sail panels to fit the massive Morel tweeters but that's another story). Also note that you'll have to cut the tabs in the inside of the speaker bracket in order to get the Jl C2650 to fit. It's nothing too tricky if you have a dremel but i was a little disappointed it took so much modification to make them fit. I thought the bracket would be ready to go out of the box.
Pros: Relatively good value
Cons: Not much mid bass. Tweeters are shrill and bright.
