Yes, these Orion speakers sound as clean and precise as they look. I realy wasn't expecting too much from these little guys, but I must say I have been very impressed with how well they handle high frequencies(12khz +). Clear image reproduction and ,to this point, no distortion.
I am running these(4 ohm) in parralell with 6 1/2 coax.Infinity ref. (4ohm) w/o crossover in-line to single rear channel amplifier, to produce < 2ohm load @ 75watts rms. L/R & R/R "b" channel with hpf @ 80hz. And man are these things rockin'.
For me, they were exactly what I needed to acheive a better balance of midrange freq. and treble. from the rear door panels of my GTI hatchback. I already have 1" tweets in the front door panels and 2-10"s in the back hatch. I was fortunate in selecting these Orion speakers, because they really filled in the "gap" where I needed more high-end. My budget was tight, but now, so is my sound. FYI : "JL Audio" 4" speaker grilles fit perfectly. Whether you want a speaker grille to be mounted flush or external on the door panel.
If anyone needs to replace their factory dash speakers(3 1/2") these Orion speaker mounting brackets could give you some flexability to upgrade to a 4" speaker. Oh,guys, don't expect much of any bass out of these speakers, just great high mids. and clear, precise treble response.
