The sound out of these little guys is impressive!! Keep in mind that speakers will always sound different in different vehicles and applications, so your experience will be different than mine. I built wood boxes behind mine to give them the perfect amount of air space and added a 6.5 mid-cheap sub to the rear. Using a high pass filter, I killed the bass on these so that I could obtain a clear sound at higher volumes. If you know what you are doing, and you lack space for larger speakers, these are completely amazing and worth every penny!” – Amazon’s Customer Review.
