Worth it. I grabbed these for my 1990 XJ Cherokee to replace the blown factory speakers. I already had an aftermarket head unit in the truck when I bought it, but somebody hacked the wiring all to hell. Fixed that up and found the speakers were too far gone to even be bearable. Searched here for 5-1/4" speakers and these came up as the cheapest, $18 or so a pair. The included wiring is something like 20 awg, but you really only need like 4" of it to splice into your factory wiring, so increased resistance by small wire gauge isn't any real concern. They fit in the factory locations with no modification whatsoever, they even fit behind the factory grilles as to remain inconspicuous. Result? They sound amazing for what they are. With a cheap aftermarket head unit, like my Pioneer, it sounds many times better than many 90's era factory stereo systems. They don't distort until you really push the limits. A great purchase all around. I would buy these again, even if the...

Pretty good for stock replacements
I picked these up to replace some blown out rear door speakers in my 2000 Ram 1500. I didn't want to spend much given that the truck is rough around the edges, and honestly wasn't expecting a whole lot from sub-$20 speakers. Well, I was pleasantly surprised once they were installed. I'm currently running them off just the power of my Pioneer deck, and they sound great, and have no noticeable distortion even at higher volumes. I'm sure they'd sound better with a small amp, but I'm not gonna try and fool anyone by saying they'd handle crazy wattage without blowing up. If you're looking for cheap stock replacement speakers, I'd say give them a shot. The only negative I found was that the included wires are very thin, but they were manageable.
