Installed these in my son's Ford Ranger. He said they sound way better than the original speakers, but I replaced the head unit as well.

January 20, 2011 Very good entry level speakers

I would recommend these speakers who are trying to inexpensively replace their stock speakers. The speakers can play very loudly and definitely produce bass with a decent head unit. The speakers come with great mounting accessories and protection. Installing them yourself to save cost is as easy as buying a connection adapter and taking off your door panels.

If you are looking for high quality speakers or to really pump up a car, you will want to spend more money. But for anybody looking for good sound while spending little: buy these.

November 9, 2010 great budget replacement speaker

I've owned 3 pairs of these speakers and for the money, there is no better pair of 5x7's as a direct factory replacement. These sound better than any factory speaker, period. They sound way better amped rather than just being powered by the head unit. Not heavy bass, but properly set up, they sound very tight. If your on a budget and dont want to spend more than $150 for 2 pairs (Like my 2002 Focus, 2 pair db571's and an eclipse 40x4 amp, kenwood head unit) of speakers, these are for you. The entire Polk line is high quality and sound just as good as speakers that are 3x as much $$

June 10, 2009 Great Speaker Replacements

I recommend these speakers...especially if you are having difficulty in affording the top of the line anything...I needed moderate speakers for my 06 F350 crew cab, replacing the stock 6x8s...I have an older amp waiting for a clean install later at 65rmx4 at 4ohms...but for now, the stock head unit (with steering wheel controls and short arms) is pumping 16watts rms x4 and they sound cleaner, warmer, higher, and lower than stock 4ohms at 25 watt rating...I couldn't believe the difference in mid bass and bass...I really think they are reaching their rated 52Hz in my sealed doors...I enjoy techno/electronica/ and some classic rock (zepp/ozzy/halen/etc..) they do great here too because the midbass is warm and has some pressure...I may not need to add the 6.5 midbass drivers I have from previous install...the highs sound nice, but too bright at times...can't wait to add some clean power and cross them over on the amp high pass at 50 and then on up as needed...I've had em'in my truck (4 new ones) for 1 business day and gave em' country/rock/trance/heavy metal/and even an audio book today...can't wait for tomorrow...these will do for a long time until I wait for some separates but need to fab some fiberglass door panels (infinity kappa)..hope this helped....features was 4 for non swivel tweets in center...overall was 4 because of bright highs at times...

I own a F150 and purchased these for all four doors. I had the benefit of using them with the stock HU and then using them with an aftermarket HU.
differences:
stock HU -
PROs: tad bit more crisp, added deep bass notes, that i never knew doors speakers could produce. MAX'd volume and these guys didn't crack, distort, or fade.
CONs: there is not enough power(expected, using OEM HU) although sound SQ was improved lack of volume sucked!
Aftermarket HU -
PROs: louder, brings out the full sound of the speaker.
CONs: slight brassy sound, had to adjust the HU's tone and filters, and a slight tweak on the iPOD's EQ and it was remedied, but again they need more power. eventually I will add an amp to these. Turnign these up past 3/4 they start to distort(HU defect not speaker).

final note,
aside from the very slightest brassy sound, these speakers are great for the price!!!
all in all very pleased, price and value!

also these are "MARINE" speakers?? so I opted not to use baffles? pro or con i don't know? So far so good. I did add dynamat to the inner skin of the door. moutning i had to bend a few tabs to have correct fitment in the rear doors.
