    Not the best

    So I purchased these speakers because one of the speakers in my 2013 Ford Fusion went out. I had these installed and was so disappointed. First off my stock speakers sounded AMAZING and had a lot of bass I wouldn’t have had them changed out if it wasn’t for that one speaker that went out. I should have gone to the dealership and had it replaced. But anyways I was told these JBL speakers would sound way better than stock and sadly they don’t. They sound very very very cheap especially with songs that have a lot of 808. However the one thing I can say about these speakers are that the tweeters do add a lot of clarity to music which my stock speakers didn’t. But as far as bass it sounds horrible and lacks it. It sounds like a really cheap speaker. You would definitely need to buy a subwoofer if you decide to purchase these speakers which I will have to do now. I wish I could just go back and have my stock speakers re-installed and have that stock speaker that went out replaced.

    I blew my stock speakers in my 07 Honda ridgeline and these speakers were recommended by the techs at the Gainesville location. They did a great job on the install. The speakers sound great on all the genres. Paired with my updated Sony headunit, I can adjust the speakers with each genre I listen to. The bass sounds great with rap like J Cole and Kendrick and the tones are versatile enough to sound great with old school country and soul.

    For starters I have a 2013 Scion frs which is known for its terrible audio system and I miss my old door speakers they had so much more bass and way less rattle and the sound was way more clear, Im so sick of these and I've only had them installed for 4 days I really want to try and get a refund when I get my sub installed in 7 days but I doubt they will let me, looking to switch to an Alpine instead. I do not recommend.

    The person who installed them did a crappy job because they damaged my rear window switch and my window couldn't roll up. Stuck with my window down for several weeks. I had to pay out of my own pocket to get it fixed. Although, I would recommend the speakers though minus the installation service...

    Purchased these for my 2002 Chevy Silverado pickup and I couldn't be more happy. My originals were all toast and these were a perfect fit into the original location. The sound is great. Great bass response and clear mid and treble with the built in tweeters.

    These JBL’s are some of the best on the market. Competition quality and not breaking the bank. Very clean sounding and solid bass with just the head unit. I added the JBL Basspro and a 4 channel JBL amp for better sound. Can’t beat the sound, it’s amazing.

    I bought these to replace some Pioneer speakers that weren't strong enough and went out on me soon after I bought them. These were a significant upgrade. They are way louder and they have a crisp sound with stronger bass. Very happy that I upgraded to these.

    I got these for my rsx and they work unbelievably well. The bass and sound quality is pristine. They are perfect for any genre you listen to. I’d also recommend a new unit preferably pioneer (optional) but I’d recommend it 10/10.

    I picked em because they were the most expensive in the store, if I’m not mistaken. Sound quality is quite an upgrade from my factory speakers. Would reccomend. But I did a similar install with cheaper ones and can’t tell much of a difference.

    These speakers have a great high quality sound that takes a bit to distort them. I have just the pair of them in my truck along with 2 12 inch mtx subs and the vocals out of these speakers are still clean and crisp. Very impressed

    These speakers we bought on to replace factory ones that sounded windy. These were reasonable and my husband was able to easily install them and they sound great! Obviously they don’t sound like a million bucks but they work well enough for our purpose.

    Honestly, they’re great speakers. They come with better speaker bass then oem. Sounds quality is amazing. Only problem was that I couldn’t tell if it was malfunctioning at a certain beat but other than that, everything works!

    Bought these JBL speakers, thinking they were what I wanted. Found that they are not flat. These speakers produce too much treble, and were hurting my ears. I returned these speakers, and bought Alpine car speakers.

    Great 2 way speakers considering the price. Vocals are crisp and clean and mid deep and clear. You will not be disappointed especially if you pair it with an aftermarket head unit that allow you to adjust audio frequency.

    Bought these speakers to upgrade my old system and must say that for a mid-range price point; they are a great buy. The sound is very good for all types of music. I would recommend them.

    Got these to upgrade my stock speakers in a 2018 Accord. Great improvement over the stock ones. Could only imagine how they would sound if added an aftermarket amp.
