Like others, I heard the cautious "don't buy MB Quart because" they were bought by Maxxsonics and are (1). No longer a German company (2). The quality is not good. But FIRST, No one that said this to me ever heard or installed them. SECOND, Maxxsonics is an American (California) company and if I am going to take a chance on quality then why not American? THIRD, the speakers are still manufactured in Germany. FOURTH, the Premium-Series is 3 levels above their "factory-installed" speaker replacement recommendation.
Lastly, I called Maxxsonics because I got a lot of conflicting installation advice. Also, I needed one extra measurement that I could not find anywhere else. Not only did they answer the phone but they quickly pulled the speaker out of the box to get the information I needed. We talked about configurations and sorted thru all the stuff I was told. They knew I was buying the speakers from someone else and they sent a follow-up email afterwards. That translates to excellent customer service.
Here's my setup: a Jeep Liberty (2002-2006) with factory-installed NAV stereo system. The factory amps found in the front doors were connected to the MBs. The speaker openings are larger than 6.5 inches so adaptive brackets were used. The tweeters fit perfectly. Forget what anyone says - you do not have to buy shallow-mount speakers for the rear doors. The factory-speakers we pulled out were full-sized. The MB crossovers have 4 settings (0, -1, -3 and -5). I chose zero because I usually set treble at +2. To test the speakers I burned a cd with songs that had lots of transitions, deep-deep bass lows and really-high end notes. The MBs played it like I was sitting in front of a live band. There's no other stereo equipment in my car. Anybody can spend $5k and get great sound - but do it for less than $500.
I think one reviewer said it best " BUY THEM."
Now, if you look through the less-pleased reviews here someone posted that the PVI 216 kit had a manufacturer defect with the voice coils which will cause them to blow well below their rated power figures. I can't comment on that, but one of mine did start crackling in and out then finally cut out entirely after a year or so, but through much trial and error I figured out it was in fact the braided flex wire that goes from the connector tab to the coil. I simply replaced it with some desoldering braid I had laying around and now everything works perfectly once again. If you are not the adventurous fix-it-yourself type I'm sure you could find a friend who knows how to solder to replace this for you in 5 mins for lunch or something.
Anyway, the other speaker has not had any issues so I'm sure that only a few units were affected at all and I would still recommend this set to anyone looking for some amazing speakers.
FYI I am pushing them with a little 300 watt Kenwood 2-ch amp (my car is a Honda S2000 and only has 2 speakers), running behind a Sony digital media receiver deck.
