Factory speakers were better

John David from MADISON, AL on 2/24/2021

2004 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these speakers as part of a total system upgrade in my 2004 Jeep Wrangler. The goal was to have a Carplay unit for handsfree phone access, but improve sound quality too. The system included a Pioneer DMH-2660NEX HU, 5-1/4" Kenwood KFC-1396PS in speaker pods up front, 6-1/2" Kenwood KFC-1696 in the overhead sound pods, and the Soundstream RSM4.1200D 75Wx4 amp. The goal of a Carplay upgrade was successful. The Pioneer unit, while not as nice as the stock unit in my other car, does the job. But an improvement in sound didn't happen. I replaced an old 14W Kenwood HU with factory speakers and a 6-1/2 factory sub. I figured I wouldn't need a replacement sub since the two factory speakers overhead (5-1/4 stock) were being replaced with 6-1/2 drivers. Each driver is the same size as my old subwoofer with specs down to 40Hz and 35Hz, so with 75W going to each I should be golden. Wrong! The 14W Kenwood with stock speakers blows away this 75W system. It is literally like listening to a slightly loud clock radio. Horrible! I don't know if it's the amp or the speakers, but together they don't work. And in case you're wondering, I used an install kit by Crutchfield, rated for this amp, and matched the amp gain with a meter. At 75% volume set the amp out on a 1kHz test tone to 17.32V. At this point I don't know whether to add a powered sub or just trash the whole thing and start over. I'm over $800 into this system and it's no better than stock. Stay away from these components!

Pros:

Cons: Thin wimpy sound

Crutchfield customer from Delaware, OH on 8/19/2020

2005 Mazda Miata

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed these in my 2005 Mazda Miata. Crisp and clear sound, don't expect a lot of base, but then again these aren't designed for base.

Pros: Crisp quality sound

Cons: Clips for the door mounting adapter were a little tough to deal with. They kept falling off when I was trying to screw the speaker in. At least they stuck to the speaker magnet and I didn't have to dig town in the door to retrieve them.

Again, these speakers and the adapters are suppose to fit my Porsche 928gt. They do not fit. Furthermore, I sent an email with a picture asking for assistance. To date, I have NOT heard back from you folks. Now, I have received countless emails promoting your company, but not one of them offered me any advice. So far, not very impressed at all. Tom Hessel

2018 Toyota Tundra

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Have these installed in my 2018 Toyota Tundra Double Cab and they are great speakers for the money. Of course, you can spend as much as you want to spend on speakers. I chose to find a reasonably priced, quality speaker and power it with a solid amp (Sound Ordinance M75/4). With the provided brackets, installation was easy. Great midrange and highs with a quality tweeter. I am running a JL Stealthbox for the low range and these hold their own for sure. Kenwood makes great gear and I'm very pleased with these.

Pros: Easy to install, great speakers for the money.

Cons: Haven't found any, thus far.
