Music Power (Nominal) 320 W (75 W), [120W CEA 2031 RMS] Cone Material (Tweeter) Mica Reinforced Cellular Glass-Fiber (Synthetic Fabric) Frequency Response 30 Hz to 30 kHz Sensitivity (1 W/1 m) 87 dB Impedance 4 Ω Crossover Bi-ampable Top Mounting Depth 2-1/4″ Cut-Out Dimensions 5-1/8″

## Overall (4.5 / 5)

In my opinion, this is one of the best sounding set of speakers out there for this price. Great low end bass notes for a speaker this size and a natural sounding tweeter that isn’t too bright (although I still prefer the -3 dB setting). They are also not that deep so aren’t hard to fit most factory speaker locations. The crossovers are bi-ampable, too for even more control of your setup.

## Features (5 / 5)

These speakers come with everything you need for installation: screws, grills, a few different tweeter mounting options. They also have the tweeter attenuation option on the bi-ampable crossover.

Bi-amping a crossover is awesome if you have an extra pair of channels on your amp and especially if you have time alignment. This allows you to run the passive crossovers and time align the tweeter separately from the woofer. Or if you don’t have time alignment, you can use this feature to adjust the woofer gain separately from the tweeter for even more midbass. This alone adds a ton of value and features to this set.

## Design (4 / 5)

Woofer
The woofer is pretty basic looking with a decent size magnet. Don’t let this fool you though.

Tweeter
The tweeters are also pretty basic looking, but once again don’t let this put you off.

Crossover
Sticking with the theme of basic, the crossovers also don’t look like anything special. Just a decent sized black rectangle with woofer/tweeter inputs and outputs.
