Not bad

pounds hard for a tweeter, mine already blew :( easy to install though.

VS
FRUSTRATION

The Kenwood KFC-835C worked fine for about two weeks, then stopped when the display informed me I should check the wiring and reset the unit. I checked the wiring, reset the unit and it worked for a few minutes and repeated the display with the "Wiring" problem. I reset the unit. It worked again for a short time. Sometimes it works for 10 or 15 minutes before it stops. When I get around to taking the unit out of my car's dash, I'll take a shotgun to it. I don't recommend the Kenwood KFC-835C unless you're into malfunction and frustration.

Like the way it fits into the original place of old radio. I wished the clock was displayed all the time or atleast the choice of it . Also would be better if the aux input was in front not the back . Other wise radio plays good has nice sound

I bought these speakers to upgrade the dash speakers in my 1990 Geo Metro commuter car. Now I've had the car 9 years, and for most of that I had Blaupunkt "pc series" 3 inch speaks. They were cheap and easy to find at the time lol. I knew these Kenwood's would be a for sure upgrade, and they were. They are pretty clear, and sound good. They are running off the deck, no amp. If you turn them up too high, they will pop a little from the bass, but if you are smart, they work just fine. For the money, I'm very happy ! If you're looking for a booming stereo, then spend more $$ ;-)

I have over the years owned many ken wood products and have great faith in their quality.
These speakers were a perfect fit for my car and sound very good. I would buy them again if I was in need of another set.

I bought these speakers to replace the original dash speakers in my 1986 Mustang GT Convertible as the originals were shot. They fit fine and the sound is good. Overall, a good value for OEM replacement when all you really want is a decent sounding speaker.

Used these speakers in the dash of my 1988 K5 Blazer. Work great! Direct fit. Huge improvement over stock speakers. Running them off of a Kenwood head unit. More than enough power for these speakers. Sound quality is great! You wont find a better speaker for the price.

I used this speaker system to replace the seat speakers in the head rest of my Miata. It worked fine and sounds great. I don't know about the durability yet. I haven't had the system working long enough to check its durability.

I bought these speakers for my 93' Volkswagen fox because I desperately needed an upgrade.
They do sound a little bit better but they can't handle very much power. If I get my music too loud they start to pop from the bass. I do wish Kenwood made some better 3-1/2" speakers. You're better off investing in a different set.
