I do love quality, but didn't want to spend a ton ...
I replaced the speakers in my Quad Cab Dakota (that I just had totally restored) with these Boss Phantoms in all 4 doors..I do love quality, but didn't want to spend a ton of money on fancy component speakers and amplifiers, as I have done that with past vehicles. Like other reviewers, I spend many hours doing my research finding the right fit for my needs. I got them quickly from Amazon and I was super impressed by the quality and finish of these speakers. These speakers are way better than the stock speakers (dual cone) could ever be, but they were starving for power that my stock radio couldn't give them. Needless to say, I replaced the factory stereo with a VR3 deck I had with preamp output and purchased a Rockford Fosgate Punch 4 channel amp/w 300watts RMS. With 75 watts RMS to drive each speaker(rated @ 100 watts RMS) these speakers crank, don't distort, tight hard hitting bass and great sound quality. I don't see how they can sell these so cheap ? They are worth so much more...

Not the greatest, the cutoff from mid woofer to mid tweeter ...
For a 4 inch speaker...they work. Not the greatest, the cutoff from mid woofer to mid tweeter is a bit steep. The tweeters can be harsh if your EQ isn't right. There's not much bass to speak of, but of course this is a friggin' 4 inch speaker. If you're using this for mids and highs, then you've found your speaker right here! I'm using this in a tower speaker setup with a 12 inch woofer, it works great for a shop stereo. It's recieving 30 watts rms, and it shows no signs of distortion, only clear mids and highs.
