Installed in 2008 Honda . Also changed OEM head unit to a Pioneer FH-X720BT. Much better than my old audio system but I had nowhere to go but up. Crutchfield supplied everything I needed. Should have done this years ago.
Alpine 6.5 seperates Type S
The mid bass is fine and clear, just what I expected. But the separate tweeters are way to bright. I had to turn down the amp and turn the treble on the head unit nearly off. They need a better crossover on the tweeters, they are way to over powering and bright.
Good sounding speakers

For the most part these are pretty good speakers. In my current install they are not powered by a separate amp but an alpine UTE 52bt head unit, in this setup they are not very impressive on the low end. I added a kenwood ksc sw11 powered sub to make up for this since I don't want to lose space to a typical sub install, this has made up for the low end deficiency pretty well and there is a nice full sound now. My other complaint is that the highs are a bit brittle and were quite honky before spending time getting the eq right. The tweeters seem a bit overpowered for the woofer so i plan to look into options for balancing that out. All in all these are good speakers but if I didn't have a head unit with a comprehensive eq I may feel differently. Even though the sound is quite good if I had it to do over I would try a different set.
Pretty Good, Pretty Good!
Super easy to install. Love that Crutchfield throws in the harness so you can use your factory wiring for free. Fit my door perfectly. Figured out a good spot for the tweeter. Also cool that the tweeter is housed in a little swivel enclosure, works great for finding that sweet spot. I installed this with the alpine CDE-143BT head unit, and they sound great together.
These Rock as hard as they Roll!!!

Installed these in a 2013 Honda Fit and they are amazing! The highs were a little bright until I turned on the auto volume leveling on my Pioneer head unit. Now they are perfect.
