I bought these to replace the Bose paper speakers in my 2009 Mazdaspeed3. I have a been using Pioneer hardware for over a decade and knew the D series components would be a solid investment. This is the first time I've been slightly disappointed.

The 6.5" woofers have been great. Plenty of punch and accuracy down to 50-60 hz. The tweeters however leave a little to be desired. There is a nasty bright spot around 3.5 khz. In other words, female voices are "ear-piercing" at moderate level. I'm awaiting delivery of a new HU and will try to adjust tuning through the on-board EQ.

What I like most about this set is that Pioneer includes a decent set of lightweight baffle plates for those of us with 6x8 enclosures. Allowed me to drop in the 6.5's with no modification. With a bit of deadening, these handle the cone movement just fine. Tweeter pods a bit bulky but not horrible. Once assembled, they take some finesse to pull back apart (should you want to adjust your listening position).

For $110, you can't really go wrong with the Pioneers. But be prepared to do some serious tuning. In the future I might spend the extra $50-60 to go JBL P660C, Focal A 165 or Polk MM6501.
