I replaced the dash panel Bose speakers with these. It wasn't the easiest install by any means. This install was definitely one of the hardest speaker installs I've had to date. Although, I don't do it for a living just my own vehicles. I had to cut the dash opening bigger to use the old speaker brackets and with the windshield just imagine how tuff that was since I don't have a small dremel. Now, for the speakers they say 180 watts but its actually 150 total watts but that's for the pair it breaks down to 75 w max and 25 w recommended. That said these just don't even sound as good as the Bose I removed. I would not recommend these for dash speakers maybe something else. Overall, I would not buy these low handling speakers again.
