I've got a 2004 VW Passat with the monsoon system. The rear doors have higher powered subwoofers that are known for blowing out. I've got a JL w7 already but needed rear speakers so I bought these. The picture doesn't show but it comes with tweeters too. The speakers give alright bass, but I wouldn't recommend these if you WANT MORE BASS. I turn the high pass filter on my headunit on since I've got a 1000W sub so I don't require it, aside from that, the mids and highs sound amazing from this pair! Just beware of the bass, it tends to bottom out!
