2003 Volvo V70
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I worked as a professional recording engineer in NYC for many years so I have no problem determining what I "like and don't like" from a speaker..The low and high end on these speakers is more than I can ask..I originally just replaced the 2 fronts ( 2003 Volvo V70 wagon ) leaving the OEM component tweets..At the same time, I added a JL Audio 10' sub through an Infinity 1300a..So far these pieces you can see are not top of the line for both and that wasn't my goal as it's an older car and wasn't planning on keeping much longer..Also the stock set-up was really and ok was never considered bad sounding..Well, just by adding these 3 components, the car came alive..(Stock deck, amp, mind you) Of course I expected better, but again, this was surprising..The high end blended perfectly with the stock tweets and the lows had that "fist to the rib cage" pounding were all looking for..Lower volumes held up well and didn't have major dips in response like a lot speakers, sounding great loud, but awful when down to grandma levels..Since that 1st upgrade, I've added (2) KS 65 in the rear channels, replaced the rear tweets with Infinity REF 075tx's, and added a 2nd Infinity amp, the (4) channel 475a..After spending an hour or so tuning the system ( critical! if you don't take the time to learn this step properly, your wasting time and money) Its like driving around in a mobile listening room..I couldn't be happier and you should be too with these speakers..Just don't drift off listening!
Pros: Great balance between low and high end..Lots of good bass at 80hz rolling off nicely to 300 hz or so..No harsh high end at high volume..
Cons: at this price?..none..
