Sound great out of the box and even better if you add an amp.
on June 13, 2011
I purchased a set of these about 6 months ago to replace the front factory Dodge Infinity speakers that were blown in my Durango. I just installed them and kept the factory amp and did not install the included crossovers. They sounded pretty good (the highs were much better than the factory tweeters), but the low end was lacking unless the volume was pushed up. Not a big deal since I also have a small subwoofer, but it was noticeable. When my back pair of factory Infinity's died, I purchase another pair of these and this time installed the crossovers for both front and back and added an aftermarket amplifier (Kicker ZX350.4, 90 watt per channel amp). WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The sound came alive. The lows from these are incredible and I almost don't need the sub (almost...these speakers seem to be good to around 80Hz and then fall off pretty fast, my sub is good for the lower frequencies and I have the crossover set to 80Hz for that). Still, all the way down to 80Hz is really good for 6 inch door speakers! Of course having great big Durango doors probably helps!
Anyhow, if you are getting these for your vehicle, and you want them to sound their best, you really should back them up with an aftermarket amplifier and use the included crossovers. If not, they still sound better than factory speakers, even the "premium" ones! I am very pleased with these.
