I bought these for the rear of my '02 F-250 (Crew Cab) and have had them for a few months. These fit the factory location, but I did have to drill a few holes, the mounting holes did not line-up perfectly with the factory holes. My rear seats partially block the speakers, but the sound is still acceptable. The highs are great, but these don't get quite as low as I expected. I thought that they would cover the low end a bit more than they do. Without adding a subwoofer, I would be somewhat disappointed in the overall performance. They work well covering the mid and high frequencies.
The speakers look good, but I do not like the new plastic frame.
I have these connected directly to an Alpine CDE-147BT head unit.

Speakers cover a broad range. It is a great speaker for the price. I have four of them in a focus as a gift for my wife. I would definitely recommend adding a sub though! I'm using two polk dbl 10s with an older 6 channel soundstream amp. Just make sure you have a good deck! I have a Sony GT620IP (I think) that makes the highs almost too much with the DSPs and different music makes adjustments necessary. My wife said she gets headaches with certain music, like Rhianna, but this is due to the deck and her not wanting to mess with the settings. Sony decks typically seem to push higher sounds that a comparable Pioneer decks in my opinion. There are other decks with deeper sounds too. I wouldn't use these speakers with decks that tip heavy toward high sounds... my opinion.

These are good speakers for the money. They are a little above entry level, but regardless sound good. I don't know if they can take 75 watts RMS though. I have them hooked to my Alpine KTP-445U, which is 45 watts RMS to four channels, and I can't turn the gain up past about half without hearing distortion. But with a small amp, these speakers sound good. I would recommend them.

Great High's! My treble is set a lot lower than with factory speakers. Could use some more low's/bass but for the price I can't complain. These replaced the front door speakers in my 2012 Mustang with the base stereo. Before, if I turned the stereo power up more than 1/3 of the way, I would get fuzz and bad distortion. Not anymore! I'm going to buy a second set for the rears very soon and maybe add a small sub to compliment the great high range these put out.
