The reviews I read about this speaker had me believing I would be transported to a Sonic utopia where I sit on a velvet listening chair and have beer served to me from a diamond encrusted, platinum tray by a bikini clad Katy Perry, in open-toe stiletto heels. Needless to say, that did not happen. I was initially disappointed in the speakers sound, and after trying everything, decided to remove the factory grills that covered them. Presto. PRES-TO. Night and day difference. Those inferior factory grills were blocking much of the sound.

These have a detailed, realistic sound, albeit a bit on the bright side (I believe the vast majority of automotive tweeters are made this way purposefully ). The woofer however, seems to lag behind the tweeter in refinement. There isnít much bass or midbass in it, and while 6.5 inch components arenít meant to produce bass, it could stand to use a little more oomph in this department.

These crossovers are a thing of beauty,( unfortunately the Bozos I hired to install this stuff took the easiest route possible for themselves and placed them in a hidden locations)The crossovers have actual heat sinks in them much like a small amplifier, and high quality parts throughout. I havenít adjusted them yet, due to the difficulty in accessing them.


Pros: Really neat looking crossovers that look like small amplifiers. There is enough metal and capacitors in them to give an electronics nerd multiple orgasms. The tweeters sound terrific.

Cons: A bit pricey, woofer doesnít sound as refined as tweets.

This is an okay overall component system. The woofers bump nice and get great sound out of them but I was expecting more from the tweeters. The tweeters are clean and get loud but they don't let you hear the distinct sounds that a higher end tweeter does.

Great product. Bought few months ago. After a few weeks they just kept on playing better and better. The tweeters are the best out of these components. Clear sound at all volumes. I have a sinfoni amplitude 90.2 and it just sounds amazing!

These speakers are unbelievable! I think your problem is that they just aren't getting enough power, I have an alpine pdx 4.150 and these speakers scream! After 5 min I have to turn it down no matter what. Annnd your speakers are the best part of your system. Upgrade your amp and you will see the true power of alpine

This component system was a great value that produces a great sound. The crossovers were easy to install after i made some minor fabrication changes to my front doors. The instructions for the crossover configuration were easy to follow as well. i have now had these installed for about two months and no problems so far. Would recommend for anyone looking for a higher line component speaker.

I bought these speakers a while ago and let me say that in a car with horribly sealed doors they have given great mid bass, I would imagine if they were in a good door, you could have a decent amount of bass with just four of these. They offer good variety of tuning options.

In my opinion you would want to bi-amp or at least use a 4 channel amplifier and power the tweeters separate from the mids. The reason for this is that I believe the mids receive more power than the tweeters and get overpowered early when you power them bridged.

Great speakers purchase 2 sets of them for front and rear doors. Nice crossover with plenty of different configuration for maximun hearing quality. You can Adjust them with 6 different types of settings on the crossover. SONIC had it in a good price comparing to other site that were selling it for almost 700 dollars a set, can't go wrong purchasing from this website. Everything came in a factory packaging brand new, I have read that this product is discontinue who knows if they will be able to get some of them again. Overall great product for a nice sounding system.
