These are the best car speakers I have ever laid my ears on!! They transformed the muddy, weak sound of my "Premium" 10 speaker Sony system in my car into an audiophile quality experience!
Pros: Perfectly accurate sound, warm highs, strong mid-bass, VERY lightweight (I was surprised by that) and VERY loud, but they don't require much power thanks to their 94db sensitivity
Cons: The tweeters don't have as many mounting options as the infinity 6030cs I previously had, so I had to modify the door panels for fit. it would be nice to have more flexibility there. Also, I had to modify the door frame to clear the woofer baskets, but I really can't blame that on Polk. The factory design from Ford was pretty awkward.
Overall I am very happy with these units and I would buy them again in a heartbeat! In order to get really good sound out of them though you need to drive them with a clean signal. I installed the speakers first with plenty of Dynamat. They were already a huge improvement, but because of the poor quality factory amp, they did sound tinny and crackly like one person mentioned in their review. As soon as I installed my JBL MS-8 (The MS-8 drives the 2 front woofers, tweeters and center channel. A separate 100w x 2 amp drives the rear using the supplied crossovers, then a separate 720 watts to a 10" RF Sub, all powered through a 1 farad cap), I couldn't believe what i was hearing. the sound is full, warm, perfectly accurate and I could hear details in the music I had never heard before. This system seriously puts my Infinity home theater to shame!!
