To be honest, I wasn't expecting much out of these speakers. I work intimately with home theater and audio mixing/mastering - so I have some pretty good gear. The key to being happy with any audio gear is expectation management. You have to have low expectations for gear (based on price) to truly be happy.

Back in 2009, a friend gave me a pair of these as a gift. I kept them all this time, constantly thinking about selling them or making something with them (not in my car). I recently bought a 2012 Mitsubishi Lancer ES with the 6-speaker system - and while I love the car, those factory speakers were awful.

I put these in the front doors using the included crossovers. I also put 60sqft of Peel & Seal from Lowes into the doors to deaden up the road noise. I installed the Hifonics Zeus ZXI63 6.5-Inch 3-Way Speakers in the rear doors.

Only powered by the factory head unit, these really aren't that bad. They're a huge improvement over the factory thin paper woofers (rated at 15W). I can turn the stereo all the way up and have no distortion in the speakers. These speakers are only slightly more efficient than the factory units, however (sound volume per watt).

The real win here is range at higher volumes. The dynamic range of these speakers is much much better than the factory units. The added highs and lows make a vast improvement in perceived quality.

I plan to add a 4ch amp to this kit. I've already purchased the

As never trying any hifonics products in the past I was skeptical of these speakers. I've owned alpine, infinity, clarion, top name brands in the past that everyone is familiar with. This time I decided to go a different route with my system, and for the price I paid for these I can't complain at all. The mids are a little lacking in punch but they definitely make up for it with the crisp clean highs. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good speaker at a great price. I am very happy with them and I am pushing them with a fosgate 75x2 rms amp. For the mids I've decided to install 8" subs in the doors. Don't get me wrong there not completely lacking but just not quite what I'm used to.

I bought these after a lot of research to replace the crappy paper cone boston acoustics (premium) speakers in my 2011 Camaro. I have them fed by a power acoustik 4 channel 840 watt amp that I also bought from here and I must say that these are the best components for the money out there! The LED's look amazing and the highs are extremely loud and clear with the crossover set to 0db. I listen to a lot of rock and some other stuff and I could not be happier! I was also surprised at the amount of bass that these put out, I had Alpine type S before in my ford and Focal Access components in my old tC but these are absolutely awesome and a quarter of the price! Very easy install and a great product!

These are great speakers for the price, these are some what of a downgrade from my Polk momo componet speakers. But the speakers I had were almost 200 dollars for the pair. Where I got 2 pairs for just over 100 bucks. Def get your moneys worth. Sometimes I feel like the speakers cant handle too much bass, but other then that I am happy with the sound.

First off, I've never had any problems with a product from Hifonics, or any Maxxsonics companies. The woofers have a good overall sound, mid bass is perfect. Also if you supply 12v to the woofer the dust cap lights up (nice added feature, cool at night) Tweeters are nice and crisp. The crossovers are easy to use and they work as advertised. Just can't find anything bad to say...

Great quality product & shipping that I highly recommend. The tweeters have the option of either angled or surface mount. The blue led logo is a great idea, although I didn't like the idea of them being on all the time but that was easily adapted with an inline switch. This is a very high end product with a low end price.

I bought a set of these speakers on black friday of 2011 for about $40. Got around to installing them around 9 months later and haven't looked back since. The mids hit decently hard and the tweets are pretty crispy (although they can be a little bright, nothing the equalizer on your head unit can't fix). Though the speakers are rated for 100 watts RMS, I have them hooked up for somewhere from 40-50 watts RMS through an amplifier. At this setting, the speakers can distort at high volumes (even with the crossover on the amp cutting off lower frequencies and the external crossover that these speakers come with). This doesn't affect me too much because this distortion only really occurs at volumes that are uncomfortably loud. But, don't get me wrong, the speakers still sound good at high volumes, just not at absurdly loud volumes. Maybe they aren't fully broken in yet (~50-75 hours of play time so far). No comment on the lights, as I do not have them hooked up.

Few notes:

-I did have to make a spacer ring from my old stock speakers to make these speakers fit in my door because these are deeper than the stocks. If you don't want to tear your stock speakers apart, something like this might work->Gino 2 Pcs Hard Plastic 6 1/2" Speaker Spacer Ring for Car

-Highly recommend running an amplifier to these speakers. If you are not planning to do so, all the extra effort during installation (tweeters, crossovers, wiring) versus a set of non-component 6.5" speakers might not be worth it.

-Remember, this set only goes low enough to produce mid-bass. You would need a subwoofer (even a small one) to produce actual bass.
