Sounds great for the price
Great looking speakers just have to put them in to see what they sound like
Sound good once installed.
Cons: No adapter plate included.
Excellent 3 way speaker. Definite improvement over OEM.
These speakers have some good kicking bass,glad i went with fosgates
Awesome product and amazing sound . Thought I would need an amp but I don't. If you're looking at these your making the best choice!! You will love them.
Pros: Best ever
Bought these to replace the stock speakers in a 2013 jeep compass. I was going to amp them, but found out they play great just off the sock head unit. These things will vibrate the doors with even half volume. If you are looking for a good stock replacement that has great clarity and bass these are the ones! With the factory plug in adapters I had all four speakers changed out in about 30 minutes! The easiest one I've ever done!
Pros: Fit perfect and sound awesome!
Cons: None so far
What a great upgrade to the stock sound system in my 2016 Jeep Patriot. While I intend to eventually replace the head unit, these speakers make the system sound so much better. These help to bridge the gap until I do replace the head unit. When I do, these speakers are staying in the Jeep!
Pros: Easy install, improved sound quality over stock speaker,
I haven't bought any speakers for a long time. I reviewed many brands of speakers and I felt these would be the best to put in my truck and they sound great!
Pros: Great sound best 6x9s I've ever had!
nice speakers! good bass response and carry mids and highs very clearly
These scream. So clear on the highs, with good mid and low balance. I am so pleased with these, I replaced my fronts with the same 3 way from RF.
Good crisp sound.
Pros: Overall easy to install. Good sound for the price.
Cons: I could only get 3 of the 4 screws in to mount it. It did not fit exact to the original mounting holes.
I HAVE THE 6X9'S IN A BOX I BUILT FOR THE BACK OF MY 1978 CORVETTE AND THEY SOUND GREAT ALONG WITH THE 10" ROCKFORD FOSGATE PRIMER2D4-10 SUBWOOFER I PURCHASED
Speakers off insane highs and nice clear mid's with a strong clear bass.
Pros: Great and clear sound
Awesome price and they sounds amazing. Excellent highs, solid mid-range, and clean bass. Can't be happier.
Pros: Great price Easy install clean rich sound
Easy quick install sounds great. Superb tech support to assist novice installers
Pros: everything you need is provided plus support
These speakers sound great so crisp and clear
Installed these in the rear deck of a 2009 Corolla. HUGE upgrade over the stock set-up. The factory speakers were cheap paper ones and were deteriorated pretty bad. The install went smoothly thanks to the great info provided by Crutchfield. I did have to drill new holes to fit them, but was a straight-forward job. The wiring harnesses provided for free by Crutchfield snaps right in. The sound difference over stock is AMAZING. These speakers have a punch to them, and awesome clarity on the high end. Now I need a set for the front doors... Couldn't be happier with these!
Pros: Sound Awesome
Cons: If you're not handy with a drill or other tools, maybe have a pro install them.
Installation into rear deck of 2005 Honda Accord required more modifications than expected. Had to elongate mounting holes in speakers and trim factory grills on bottom to sit flush on edges of speakers. Speakers are well constructed and had excellent high frequency response immediately. Bass response improved significantly after several hours use. Overall, pleased with speakers and installation modifications were not significant. Definite improvement over factory rear speakers.
Pros: Great sound, well built speakers.
Cons: Required some mechanical modifications for my installation.
They went in our car with out any problem. Sound so much better then the stock ones.
Great sound. Easy installation
Pros: Great sound and easy installation
Speakers work great. They have good highs, lows and mid-range. Bought these as replacements for factory Toyota speakers. What an improvement over stock speakers. Only con is that they use different mounting holes than the factory ones. You actually have to drill new holes. The provided sheet metal screws are unusually long but not a huge deal. They just make installation a little cumbersome since there is not much room to work. The RF speaker quality is great. Would definitely buy again.
Pros: Free shipping. Free speaker wire connectors. Great bass, mid , highs.
Cons: Extra long sheet metal screws
These speakers are so much better than the factory ones. I put these in my daughters car and I wish I had them in mine. Very clear sound.
Pros: clear sound, easy install
These are great sounding 6x9s. Note that alot of the reviews have complantients about the bass they produce. These are medium powered speakers (130w max), and do need to break in. This may take more than a month. Also these are preminum quality speakers with both tweeters, and super tweeters, so they do a much better job at reproducing the high ends. All in all for any head unit, or small amp, these are the best 6x9s your going to find outside of the comp lv speakers. Sorry for spelling and grammer errors.
Pros: Sound quality Included hardwear
These speakers are quite the upgrade from factory and put out great sound. The bass comes through nicely along with the high-end treble. Great speakers for a great price. Can't go wrong.
Pros: Great sound and great balance even with a factory headunit.
Cons: None I can tell of.
These speakers sound very nice, no complaints
Pros: Nice sounds
Cons: Didn't fit completely only used 2 of 4 screws
So I purchased the Rockford Fosgate Prime R169X3 after I had purchased the Rockford Fosgate R152's. Way better, The 6X9's deliver the bass as well as the highs and mids to make my music sound awesome. I was pleased with both purchases but removed the 152 series for the 169 series. I have placed the 152's in my girlfriends Honda and they were an improvement over her stock speakers. So we are truly pleased to have such great quality in our vehicles. This all comes from the stock stereos and we are both planning to puchase stereos from Crutchfield. Thank you. Tony.
Pros: Deep bass, Clean Highs, overall awesome sound performance.
This was my first time buying a Rockford product and a 3 way speak. I decide to go with a 3-way speaker because I wanted to add a full range of sounds coming from the bottom part of my door on my 87' Dodge. I am greatly impressed with the sound quality coming from these speakers.
Pros: A great purchase price comes with mounting hardware and speaker harness adapter
They fit perfectly and sound great. I didn't have to alter anything at all. Definitly recomend
Pros: Everything great flexibility, clarity of sound, and even look too
These speakers provide very good sound for the price, with a fairly even frequency response. They fit my car perfectly.
Pros: A dramatic improvement vs the factory speakers. Should've done it years ago. As they are lower power, they are a decent choice for an un-amplified head unit that only pushes 20 watts on a good day. Excellent value, easy install, and a fairly even frequency response.
Cons: Has a few hot & cold spots in the frequency response, with a very cold spot at around 500 Hz (probably where the integrated crossover is). You'll need some EQ to bring it back up. Whining over the 500Hz dip for a value speaker seems a bit petty, though.
If you can only replace one set of speakers, look no further. These are the best. Handling the entire spectrum from Bass, mids, and highs like a champ. Super clean audio.
Pros: Super clean at any spectrum of audio. Can handle bass mid and high like no other.
all in all there a great speaker setup! No there not there high end stuff. but great for a cheap speaker. Ive had better and Ive had worse.... would I buy again hell yeah!!!!!!! getting ready to order another set!!!!!!!
Put these in my daughters corolla and wow. What an upgrade these were. Along with The door speakers i upgraded and the new head unit the car sounds so much better. Loud and crisp without an amp. Granted not meant to rattle windows but sounds miles better.
Pros: The 3-way setup sounds great Perfect upgrade
Cons: Mounting in a corolla rear deck was somewhat aggravating but no way to avoid it. Blame toyo ;)
nice sounding speakers for the price.. very fast shipping
Pros: good replacement speakers at a good price
Cons: mounting holes do not line up perfect, but with a little effort I got them to line up..
Wow the sound is amazing. You won't regret buying these speakers
I have bought 4 sets of these speakers over the past 8 years. 1 set for my wife's car, which are now 8 years old. 2 sets for my truck, which are now 6 years old. And this last set for my son's car. We all like our music, and we bang the heck out of these Fosgate's. All of them still sound great, even the 8-year-old ones. Great product, and very durable in my opinion.
Pros: Great price and sound. Long lasting.
These are great speakers that I got from the dent and scratch. They were pretty much brand new !! Installed them on my rear deck on my 1999 Toyota Camry.
Pros: Great amount of bass and volume on on 25w x 4 Panasonic Head Unit.
They sound great for what they are, stock radio and all!
Pros: look and sound great
Cons: holes don't line up, so you have to do some rigging to mount them.
Product was packed well, shipped immediately and all connectors were included and worked for my vehicle
Installed these speakers into my 2012 Toyota Camry today. I'm running with factory stereo and they are a Huge improvement! I'm completely satisfied with these speakers as they play so clear. The price was fantastic as I picked these up on sale - great value! Install was a breeze with the rear speaker adapters. Crutchfield site says these won't work in the rear speaker location but they fit great with the right rear speaker adapters that can be picked elsewhere. Highly recommend these.
I bought these to replace my factory door speakers in my 2005 Nissan Frontier. Sound quality is decent and installation was a breeze. Due to previous reviews I looked at, I was expecting a little more bass out of these. But it works I suppose. If you want some serious bass I guess you need to buy some subwoofers. Thats why they make them. Sound isn't distorted and it comes out crystal clear...just wish they had a little more bass.
Pros: Crystal clear sound. Easy install. Nice design; would look good mounted outside of door panel.
Cons: Bass is weak
Installed in all doors in 2015 Jeep Patriot. All clear, and full sound at max volume. Easy upgrade with the free adapters that Crutchfield includes.
Pros: The full sound . Price. Ease of install.
Cons: Didn't do it sooner.
These speakers are great. I had to drill new the holes to fit th e speakers but I knew that going in.
Pros: Sound Great
Installed these on the rear deck of an '07 Yaris. I cut out the frame of the stock speaker to use as plate to attach these speakers. Worked like a charm. Excellent sound quality for the price point. Plenty of bass and high end. Mid range lacking a bit. Hey they're in a Yaris. Its ok.
Pros: Good sound quality for the price point
Cons: Thin on the mid range. No big deal.
The speakers were fantastic. Installed them with the instructions from the guys at Crutchfield electronics. The answered each question like they really wanted to help. I will as always buy through this organization. Cecil was simply outstanding.
Pros: quick delivery, great quality, and fantastic service
Popped these into the rear deck of a 2003 Toyota Coroola for my daughter. Despite a rather poor aftermarket head unit that came with the car, these speakers provided a huge upgrade to the old paper stock speakers that came with the car. I believe the base would be there but for the power of the head unit, but as far as the bass and mid-range, these speakers sounded outstanding. At the price-point offered by Crutchfield, I highly recommend them.
Pros: Geat mid-range and tweeter response; price-point to value is outstanding.
Cons: Nothing negative in terms of performance, just installation. On a 2003 Toyota Corrola, I had to do a bit of extra modification/drilling which was a pain only b/c of the angle and space in the runk (tight).
I personaly like these speakers, they have great bass and sound very clear. As always great technical help from Crutchfield.
Absolutely love them, wish could put throughout car.
Pros: Absolutely love them. Great sound and for 6×9 they hit fairly hard.
Cons: Don't have a great job so can't buy more
I have Rockford's prime components in the front, bought these for behind the seat and they combined with the s/o box's are very good.
Pros: Easy setup, great sound for the money
I bought these for the rear deck in conjunction with some smaller units for the front doors in my 1994 Cadillac DeVille. Wow. The sound quality of these speakers was much better than I expected for the price. The amount of low-end bass they carried was truly shocking, and they're running off the factory head unit. I highly recommend these as an upgrade for factory speakers, especially for the low price. Make sure you have some equalizer functionality in your head unit to get the full benefit.
Pros: Big, deep, rich bass. No distortion at nice, thick volumes. Highs and mids were clear and present.
Cons: Only thing I could possibly say is that they might have too much bass if your head unit doesn't have EQ capability to fine-tune, but that might be from the very large trunk and large interior of the Cadillac.
Purchased these speakers to place in the back of an SUV. Since my vehicle has a factory amplifier, I had additional wiring available behind the aftermarket Pioneer HU, These were installed in speaker boxes for use when tailgating, camping, etc. The sound quality is excellent for the price. Clear highs, and lows without distortion at decent volume. Quality construction, simple and classic look. The grille is a bit more flexible than I expected, but just need to keep heavy items away. Better to replace a dented grille than a cut speaker. Would recommend to anyone.
Pros: Crisp, clear sound, quality construction, great value
Cons: Somewhat flimsy grille.
Great sound fits rite in place of the factory speakers wired up easy
Nice speakers for the price.
Pros: Good value especially for OEM speakers
Very good. Close to Infinity from auto factory. Much better than stock.
Pros: Very good upgrade for a '95 minivan. Kenwood head.
Cons: Alignment holes were a little off.
This is a good sounding speaker. It took only a couple of days to break them in. However, for what I paid for them, this speaker sounds great. If your looking for something that won't break your pocket and sounds nice, I don't think I could of done better. Good over all range.
Pros: Sounds good and cheap. Best bang for your buck.
Cons: For my 1998 honda accord, the hole pattern did not match the factory ones and hard to make new ones.
Overall, great speakers! We selected our speakers by going to the new Crutchfield store in Charlottesville, VA which I highly recommend to those with that option as their new car audio simulator was very helpful is selecting the right speakers for our application. On to the speakers. The difference between these and the stock speakers was night and day. The lows were stronger, the highers existed finally! The stock speakers sounded like they were muffled and underwater when we compared them to these halfway through the install. You can't go wrong with these speakers, the music actually sounds like it was intended once you install these. Paired with Rockford Fosgate Prime R165-S in the front doors the overhauled sound system is amazing! On a side note, although the instructions provided by Crutchfield were clear, they recommended you make or purchase a speaker adapter to mount the speakers. Long story short, you will need an adapter as the stock speakers mount on holes far from the speaker and because of the way the sheet metal is bent in the vicinity of the speaker (and under the angled rear glass) I didn't even try to match drill holes in the rear deck. Anyways, I purchased some adapters online for "Rear Toyota Aftermarket Speaker Adapter 6x9 Inches" which made the install possible. Not sure why Crutchfield provides the adapter for the front door speakers and not the rear, but just be aware and plan ahead.
Pros: Excellent highs, mids and lows, especially compared to stock speakers. Wish I'd done this a long time ago!
Cons: Have found no cons with the speaker, but all 6x9 speakers for rear deck of Corolla will require an adapter which must be purchased elsewhere.
Good product at a good price.
Pros: Price Quality Clarity
Cons: None so far
Very nice sounding speakers, i put them in a 2012 Jeep Compass, they are very easy to install, 25 mins for all 4 doors!
Pros: Fit perfect
I purchased the Rockford Fosgate Prime R169X3 Speakers for my Sonata and I absolutely love them. They have good bass response and make driving a lot more fun!!!
Pros: Easy Installation, good sound, good price.
I installed these in the rear deck of a 2004 Camry and I could not be more pleased. The sound separation and clarity is about the best I have heard for the price. These are hooked up to a Kenwood Excelon X797 receiver...no amp.
Pros: Clarity, bass response, separation.
Cons: none yet
Great speaker. Great brand. Overral satisfied. But, the website informed me that the speaker is compatible with my 2006 Honda Accord EX V6 (Sedan) and then as I was checking out they informed me that I needed to use the factory speaker grilles instead of the grilles that come with the speaker. The factory grilles do not snap into place with the 3-way speaker due to the silk dome pole that the tweeter and midrange are mounted on. Therefore, it is not compatible. Not too big of a deal if you don't mind the appearance of the car while using the grilles that came with the speakers.
Pros: Great speaker. Excellent sound.
Easy to install. Sounds a LOT better than the factory speakers
Pros: Clear sound. Ease of install.
Cons: Not really a con, just an observation with any speaker. I would suggest adding a sub woofer to this install for better reach into the lower sound range for a deeper and enhanced base.
These speakers rock. They sound really good for 6x9 speakers. They put out good bass and highs sound really clear. You can't go wrong with Rockford Fosgate.
Pros: Easy to install.
