I think these are great sounding speakers but for one issue I'll talk about later.  They are quite bright - I have the tweeters set to -5dB.  With the tweeters mellowed they sound great.  But over time I developed a problem. 

I originally thought is was the factory amplifier going bad and creating distortion problems in my right front speaker.  It usually sounded great in the morning but the longer I would drive the car, distortion would get steadily worse.  After I replaced the factory amp in my 2008 Accord Coupe the issue was still there.  After checking out the speaker I found out the center cone piece (removable to make it a coax speaker) was rubbing against the side of the cone and creating some nasty distortion.  I tried removing it and getting it back in place.  But after more time it, and the driver side speaker, both started having the same issue.  So I completely removed the piece that goes in the center of the speaker, but it doesn't sound quite right at higher volumes.  I recommend getting a component speaker that does NOT have the option to convert it to a coax speaker - a true solid woofer with no hole in the middle.

I plan on replacing the woofers with something similar but keeping the tweeters.

First off this is not my first rodeo. I have been in the car audio game for 20+ years. I have owned JL Audio XR 3 way components; Old school MB Quart reference and Q series components, Xtant, you name it is been either installed in one of mine or my colleagues vehicles. These components were a revelation. I was very skeptical about Maxxsonics MB Quart. Well not any longer. My side by side comparison isn't exactly fair; but is typical at this price point. I have a 2000 silverado extended cab in which I had installed an old school alpine 3527 to drive the highs, a jl audio j2 500 watt monoblock driving 2 JL Audio 12W6v1 old school subs and an alpine CDA-9885. Well I had Boston S65's along with the factory tweets so that's 2 tweets per side and a midbass. Got these because one of my Boston's bit the dust after 8 months... Funny because I never clip my amp and 25Wx4 isn't outside the specs. Guess 25Wx4 used to mean something. Long story short the previous combo sounds like it is under water in a side by side comparison. Yes the tweets are a little bright, but hey they have a level control on the crossover and you do have treble controls right? I was able to use the eq properly for the first time on my Alpine. Got the treble at 15k on +2; not +5. The bass used to be 200HZ with a Q2 setting at -2 to make up for the Boston's shortcomings. Now it is at 80HZ (my crossover points) at +2. OMG no more gaps! It's so seamless. Buy these!!! Even at full retail they are a deal. I think I would compare the quality of manufacture, sound, and components to that of the JL Audio XR line. Believe me that is a compliment. Although I think the mids on these don't sound nearly as forced as the JL. I may never leave my truck again. :D

tweeter is way too bright no matter where it is mounted midbass is very weak blew them up without distorting them at all at high volume of course,would not recommend these
