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.
