crisp highs, deep mid bass, great value, full mesh grill protection.

I have seen reviews saying that these speakers have no bass, and for some applications, that may be true. The one thing that can make car door speakers sound good or bad is the car door. thin doors on smaller cars will have a higher resonate frequency, resulting in poor bass response. While thicker doors like in pickups or s.u.vs have a lower resonate frequency, resulting in deeper bass. I have these speakers mounted in a custom made tuned port boombox with a small 20 watt per channel amp powered by a sealed lead acid battery and it has a great lower mid bass punch that can be felt from about 20 ft away, but not sub bass. However, I have played some subwoofer tests on it and these speakers will respond down to about 30 hz but they hit hard at about 55-60hz with a smooth roll off. The highs are crisp and clear, mids are decent, could be better, nothing an eq can't fix. If you are thinking about buying some cheap off brand speaker instead, think again, I bought these for 29.99 from 3 Kings Audio and they are a great value at that price.
