Sweet Speaks!

I replaced the OEMs in the doors of my 03 Tundra and was very pleased with the difference.

I am only driving these with my Sony (always excellent signal to noise ratio!) media head unit but they put out plenty of sweet and clean vibes!

For the price you can't beat it.

Installed in a Hyundai Accent 2010 4 Door sedan.

Installation was quite easy in general fitted in OEM 6.5" speaker bracket, just had to create a hole that wasn't there since the bolt pattern isn't the same which is not a big deal.

High and med are great, a little too much of high actually, would have hope for a little more bass.

Also i would have wish to have more option to install the tweeter in place the little stopper that came with it is almost useless, used the stopped + nail glue to stick it in place correctly.

Pertty good speakers. They distort at high volume but have a decent sound at mid range. Worth the price!

Decent for the money

These Arnt super super loud mind blasters but it is Rockford fosgate quality while saving a few bucks. They are perfect unless your trying to turn it up where you can't here your self think. Then you may be slightly dissappointed but I would deff buy again!

Love them!

I purchased two pairs to replace the stock OEM speakers in my 2002 Corolla S. I was blown away by the sound, excellent highs and good mids. I have a sub so I can't say much about the bass they produce. I have these powered by an Rockford R400-4D amp so they are getting at least 65 RMS each. No distortion or hiccups at any volume. Great great speakers for the price.

Very good for the money

These are very clean door speakers and get pretty loud, I mean they are not the best out there but for the money they would beat everybody in its class, I bought then and installed them in my buddy's truck and they play really nice highs, I would recommend you buy a subwoofer though to complement the sound because, in the 6.5's, the mids are not ground pounding lows but all in all very good clean door speakers

Rockford Fosgate PRIME R165-S

Just finished installing these in my Silverado. Pulled out the Bose. These babies sound great. Crisp and clear.

Awesome Speakers

I have had these in the front doors of my 01 Silverado for several months and they sound great! I had them running off the stock radio and they were decent sounding for a stock radio. Then, i installed a Pioneer head unit and a KTP-445 Power Pack Amp behind the dash to give them 45rms each and they sound amazing! Dont think that Rockford's lowest line of speakers is junk, they are no joke.

Great sound and value

The price in the stereo shop was $200 a pair, I paid only $130 for two pairs here. You can't beat that. I have a Prime Rockford Fosgate 4channel amp running it and it sounds great.

great value

Hard to beat for the money and a component set at that! No crossover but you dont really need it as long as you dont overpower them.
