If you have realistic expectations then these are well worth the price. They are not home theater speakers and they are not designed for driving loud bass in a car. They will not handle being driven by a moderately powered amp, let alone a good one. They are great for giving subtle bass to an already decent set of car speakers. This is ideal for a small hatchback or similar small car. The box alone is worth $30. If you don't like them, swap out the woofers with 2-way 6.5" speakers and have a nice well rounded box in your car for less than you would spend anywhere else.
this is you must not forget only 300w peak power but is absolutely great i have no problems so far with it and box its self is worth 30 bucks so i must say to all its a super deal
It won't rattle your neighbor's windows but sounds pretty darn good inside my extra cab truck.
i recently bought one of these for my 96 ram 1500 extended cab. they are awesome! perfect amoutn of bass for me not booming but u can actually hear it good. and u can feel it. i really have liked them so far. blew all the other speakers in my truck after gettin these from crankin it to loud :) so they are very nice
these speakers are really great if you use the right stuff (amp proper Ga. wires) i hooked mine up to a 400 watt dual amp also from walmart and 14 gauge wires to wire it up, and put these behind the seats in my single cab. and honestly when the amp is up all the way it sounds like a stereo system from a nice german car. not car rattling bass but really nice deep bass and clear sounds. it will sound as if you innstalled a premium sound system from a Merc-Benz. AGAIN only if there properly hooked up. if you just wire them to the back of your stereo it will just soud like another pair of stock speakers
These speakers are a really good deal. They sound great and have good bass. I have had no problems or complaints at all with these.
This thing is awesome, you get two subs and tweeters for the price of one sub and they sound great just hooked up without an amp to the rear speakers of your car ( I tested it with both stock and sony stereo) (if your using stock depending on your car they sound awesome, I liked the bass on my stock stereo using these rather than using them with the sony stereo which oddly did not hit as hard as when using the stock.....anyway They add that extra bass that you may be looking for.... it won't rattle windows per se like more expensive subs.... but it does vibrate my rear windshield quite a bit and sounds just as good. I would go with two of these enclosures stacked on top of each other for a real good bass sound and the tweeters help balance out so your not just listening to lows on music but get a dynamic rich sound..... 4 subs pounding at the same time sound great right in between the two rear deck speakers in the trunk. My advice is as with all speakers these should be "broken in" for about two weeks on low to mid volume.... don't blast them on first shot or else you'll kill them and they will make fizz sounds.... break them in for two weeks then turn it up and the subs will be able to flex a little more after the break in period and it sounds just as good as more expensive options.... most people don't like it because they blared it right from the start.... break them in for 2 weeks and then hit it hard and these subs will serve you well and you'll get deep bass..... after break in period.
i like these subs i have a pick up truck.. the box fits behind my seat and sounds good ..i just wanted something with a little bass and i got it. caught them on sale and said why not. they have 2 tweeters build in and they sound great. i would recommend this product
Speaker is a left and right channel put together. I cut it in half, made a plywood endcap for each half and had two speakers that fit behind the seats in my small truck. Sounds fair and it's hard to beat the less than $30 price for two speakers.
I bought this for my mom for Christmas because she doesn't have stock rear speakers, and am extremely impressed by the sound quality. It fits perfect in the back of her extended cab between the jump seats. When I finished installing this and the stereo, I called her and told her that I was jealous cause her system sounded better than mine. Now I'm going to have to upgrade my system. Well, the speakers, anyway.
If you want big sound in a little package, this is the system for you!
i put this in a truck sounds great and for the price you cant beat it
I got two of these and rewired each box I put both subs on one jack and both tweeters on one jack. hook them to a 2 channel amp only using subs, I was well pleased with out come. it gave me the sound i was looking for,not to much just what i needed. I am old school and like classic rock. My system is a alpine head unit 50 watts per channel 4 kenwood 3-way speakers a 1000 watts pioneer 2 channel amp and 2 of these speaker boxes IT WILL BLOW YOU OUT!!!!!!!
I was amazed how these speakers sound--I'm only using a Pioneer head unit and they sound great and they match my trucks interior--very pleased.
I hooked up these speakers and they sound ok but when I turned them up I could hear air trying to get out so I unscrewed the tweeters and man, I got a lot more bass out of those speakers.
Just unscrew the tweeters and since I have these speakers in my room I just set the tweeters beside the whole case. I recommend that you don't buy this system if you want lots of bass unless you know how to take out the tweeters on both sides and let the air move.
The dual subs sound great since they are mid bass subs. I opened up the box to find that the subs are in different compartments creating better sound. The tweeters aren't tweeters they are mid tone horns. If you replace the tweeters with bullet tweeters, you have a great sounding system. Like it is crisp as can be. If you buy a basic amp like the Lepai 20+20 or Lepai Super Bass, (Amazon) you have a really nice home made stereo. I plan on buying another for my friend. The total price of this system comes out to: Scosche box + tweeters + Lepai amp (optional). So $30+$15+20, with a total of $65. It is a lot but this set up will sound just like an Alpine set up. It is awesome.
However on this set up I modified it too much. As seen in the pictures.
Although I would never even consider putting these in my car, that is not an indication these are worthless junk. In fact, they actually make a quite adequate and affordable center channel speaker for home theater. However, one has to get a bit creative if this is their intended purpose. First, pull the drivers and add a bit of poly fill to the cabinets to tighten up these babies. Pack the entire cabinet, but pack it so as the poly fill remains fluffy. You want to make sure the cabinet is still airy. Put the drivers back in place. Lastly, you want to wire these so they are in series. Take the positive lead from the AVR center channel output and connect to either positive terminal on the back of the speaker cabinet. Take a short wire and first hook it to the negative terminal of the side you just finished hooking up to the hot lead. Now hook the other end of that wire to the other side's positive terminal. Lastly, hook the negative of that terminal to the negative of the AVR's center channel output. You have just turned two 4 ohm systems into a single 8 ohm system. You have also increased the power handling capabilities of the speaker unit. And don't even begin to believe the manufacturer's power handling figures. A 100 watts RMS out of a quality amp will vaporize these puppies. But modified and hooked up, exactly as described, these will stand up to serious power. I've done this for several surround sound/home theater installations and I have yet to experience any premature failures. Try it. You will find these "cheapies" will hang right in there with many center channel units that cost 10 times as much or more. Cheap does not automatically translate to junk - not always.
i bought this to put behind the seat of my 1997 nissan pickup. but it has this funny angled back to it and that angle was just enough to keep the seat from going back into its locked position. so that was a bummer. but i gave it to my brother who has a full size pickup work truck and its worked out just fine. like others have said you would really think it would get a better bass response. and since it has the speaker guards in front it would be quite a task to change out the 6.5 inch woofers for an upgrade. and the tweeters are not top drawer. but also like someone else stated, the box alone is worth the $30. my brother is no audiofile kind of cat so for him and those like him this thing DOES get pretty loud. just not thunderous. if you had a little hatchback or like an RX-7, these would work really well. just hang on to the box and recpt just in case it does not fit. hahaha. for $30 i am nit picking, they are not a bad start for anyone. remember its left and right channel for ONLY $30. thats just a tank of gas.......... pretty hard to complain about really.

We are glad to hear that you are enjoying your new Scosche product. Thank you for taking an interest in our company and our products.
i got these for home/car sound....with a good amp you can rattle the windows or add crisp sound to your music. $30 cant be beat!!! WILL be getting more!
I bought one of these a couple of years back and it has been a great speaker since. No problems at all. When we started building our cargo/camper trailer conversion I didn't hesitate to buy another one just like it for the camper.
