    1. Brian Ensminger

      Ok for the price…

      Installed these in the front doors to my 94 mustang. They do provide a clear sound, but distort rather easily. I did not expect this from a Rockford product. These seem to be ok if you need a cheap set of replacement speakers, just dont expect very much.

    6. 7cjbill2

      Great sound for the money.

      Not sure how people say “lack of bass.” I had a Kenwood underseat subwoofer, which I wound up turning WAY down now because these speakers provide more than adequate bass in my doors of my Honda Civic. They mounted to a set of of speaker mounts I’d purchased elsewhere for the previous Planet Audio speakers Sound is a great improvement, and I’m very impressed for the price.

      Incredible value

      Great sound, well built. Handles plenty of power. Seem durable and perfect for oem upgrade. Only going is the baskets are much wider and deeper than most oem speakers. So in some applications the recessed area under the speaker will need to be cut larger.

    12. Paul Lester

      Adequate speakers for an old car

      I am no audiophile so they sound fine to me. I put them in the doors of a 1971 MGB. They needed to be thin to fit and these fit the bill just fine. They came with all the hardware I needed and the speaker wire in much longer length than necessary for my application. I play mostly 50s and 60s rock and pop so they work fine for me. If you want obnoxious window rattling base they may not be what you want.

      Excellent speakers for the application

      Beats the factory speakers for sure. That’s to be expected from after-market.At 5.5″, full range, you get what you expect…. the full spectrum of sound. You’re not going to get thumping bass, you’re going to get clear sound.This is my second time buying these for a Jeep. I am going to buy another set to do the front speakers.

      Lots of cheaper ones out that sound as good.

      Look good sounds good but had to modify mounting Holes. The car I put them in says 5 and 1/4 holes. The Speaker says 5.25 so should be the same but they were actually a bit shorter than the screw holes. Had to open the end of Speaker mounting holes and use washers to clamp them in place. Not using them as blaster’s just music .

    17. Mike

      Good bang for the buck

      Using in my trailer to replace the stock speakers. What an upgrade in sound and at a great price. My receiver is a turd, so the speakers can only help so much. Remember, garbage in, garbage out. Even so, nice improvement in sound and clarity.

      Lacks bass but sounds better with amp.

    19. Jameson North

      Good mid and treble, disappointing bass

      Many have commented something similar, and I was nervous about it during install: bass performance. In short, bass is really lacking on these speakers. The mids and highs are pretty clear, much better than the stock speakers these replaced. I used a pair of 6.5 3-way and a pair of 5.25 2-way speakers in a 2nd generation Subaru Forester. Clarity is much improved, and the sound is less muddy. Very crisp and sounds good, but the bass is just missing. I have my factory stereo set to it’s maximum bass setting, and it’s significantly less than the terrible stock speakers were at standard bass settings (one of the stocks was even damaged). I’m installing a new head unit soon, and am hoping a higher quality unit will help with the bass, because I’ll need to look into adding a subwoofer otherwise.If you’re getting the 6×9 speakers, you might be OK on bass, but I’d look elsewhere if you like bass and can’t install a sub. Overall I’m happy with the speakers, with the one notable exception.Update: New head unit didn’t help. Speakers need subs. Still decent speakers for the price.

      Rockford fosgate always delivers!

      Put into an 87 Ranger, replacing 4″ speakers after some modification. These play way louder and bring out way more detail! I’m stoked with this purchase! They are powered by a pioneer head unit, accompanied by a rockford fosgate12″ p3 shallow sub powered by the rf pbr300 mono amp. My sound system is now the best part of my old 87 ranger.

    26. Mr. APGalaxy

      Very impressive for this price range

      I’ve bought these speakers to replace the factory speakers in two different vehicles now. They sound great and pump out a lot of bass, very impressive for this price range. No problems after two years in one vehicle so I didn’t hesitate to purchase again, and wouldn’t for the next vehicle either.

    29. Kurt Doerfel

      Weak bass. Only good if you’re cutting out the bass and using these as mid-range speakers.

      These speakers dont deliver clean bass. The same size factory speaker in my 2000 Park Ave deliver such better, cleaner, pumping bass than these. I only needed one because the car came with a blown speaker. Pretty disappointed. Gonna be looking for a factory OEM speaker on eBay.This is probably only a good speaker to use if you’re gonna use a sub and cut out the low end in these because it seems the kick in any music will have these physically clipping. Ugh

      Not the best speakers out there, but amazing value

      I am not an audiophile, but I bought these to replace some really old and bad speakers in my 2006 Mazda. The audio quality is easily twice as good as it was before, and if you have the right tools, replacing your speakers is not that hard if you are handy. I can definitely hear how they could be better, but you really can’t argue the price.

      Great sound for your dollar.

      I wanted a good pair of speakers for my son’s pickup. These fit perfectly in the front doors of his 97 Ranger. Running it with a Kenwood receiver they sound amazing for what I paid for them. I chose these over other speakers because of the silk dome tweeters. Silk domes always give you a very natural sound in the higher frequency and these don’t disappoint. Base sounded surprisingly good for there size once we made a few adjustments at the receiver, we were both very satisfied with the sound. Highly recommend these, best bang per buck.

      Complete garbage.

      Absolutely garbage. Installed two sets (front and rear) in my 2000 Harley Davidson to upgrade the cheap, 19 year old factory installed speakers and the sound quality wasnt much better. The real kicker is they didnt even last 3 hours with my stock factory stereo on half bass, half treble and half volume. I’d love my money back but I doubt that’ll happen.

      Was Disappointed

      Bought these to replace the company rear speakers in my truck. These were about the same price as the Pioneers I had put in the front. They were simple to put in, but when I started to test them out, I was disappointed. I was hoping for more bass in the back and had heard that these would provide that (according to the Crutchfield rep), but they had very little bass response compared to the Pioneers. The sounded very flat with very little punch or clarity across the board. Can do much better for the price.

      Easy to install in my 86′ 4Runner, sound great!

      Needed to replace my crappy rear bed speakers and wanted to upgrade to something with a bit more power. These swapped in easily with plenty of mounting options to fit wherever I needed them to go. Direct swap on my existing wiring harness, took longer to take off the plastic quarter panels than to install these.These aren’t the most expensive speakers in the world but they can crank up pretty hard and still sound clean and clear without distortion. I mainly listen to talk radio or rock and both come through with great range and clarity. Super pleased with how these have held up for 5 years now without any issue and still sounding strong.

      Absolutely terrible, worse than OEM

      After reading multiple reviews I thought I was being pretty smart getting these Fosgates — “best in the industry” “huge upgrade from OEM” etc. etc…Imagine my surprise when these “full-range speakers” produce something like, 250hz – 2khz, at about a third of the volume of my OEM Honda speakers… nothing but quiet, muffled mud. VERY disappointing, to say the least.I would be very hesitant to buy these speakers unless your other alternative is no speakers at all.

      Quality and affordable

    54. PapaSam

      Part of a chorus of sound.

      As part of a 16 speaker array in a 2003 Corvette convertible they do a great job! Mounted in the rear stock location immediately behind the seats and along with two enclosure mounted 8″ DVC sub-woofers, two 5.25″ Morel mid range and two 2″ tweeters, these puppies work in concert with the other speakers to fill out the total audio range. They are powered off the head units 22 watts per ch. rear speaker out puts. The other speakers are on a separate 900 watt amp so not to be over driven. As a stand alone speaker, they would perform well I am sure. As a believer that the more audio drivers the better, just as a chorus sounds better than a solo, the db rating and full range capability make them a great match up in this setting.

      I used a pair of these in the front kick panel areas of my 54 chevy, along with a pair of 6x9s in the back and the sound is great. The car only had a single speaker in the dash originally, so I’m not trying to compare the sound to it. I tried a set of Boss speakers and they were pretty terrible. These RFs sound really good on their own for what they are, and make a great pairing with a larger 3-way speaker. Not that you would use it, but they also came with pre-terminated wires.

      Rockford Fosgate R1525X2 Prime 5.25-Inch Full Range Coaxial Speaker – Set of 2

      Sound quality is average with a Alpine power pack powering it. Bass isn’t that great, this is a entry level speaker set. Install is easy, but a PITA, because the screw holes aren’t open ends. So you can’t use the screws that come with and have to source your own. Also you need to install speakers with the screws going in diagonally. If the screw holes were open ends? You could use the included screws and the install would be easier.

      I bought 4 of these to replace the factory speakers in my 2006 Mazda 3 Style I. The cones on the originals were all blown due to water seeping onto the paper cones from above. These speaker fit perfectly. To protect them from water, I fashioned some rain shields from plastic canisters and used aluminum HVAC foil tape to secure them into the openings before mounting the speakers. I suppose only time will tell if my rain shields work. But love the speakers, they have great sound.

      Darn good quality & better than factory by miles!

      Grandson finally got a “new” Ford Ranger and of course, things to do. One surprise for him was new Rockford Fosgate speakers because the old ones sure were tired. These fit well in the truck behind the seats, installed simple for him with Metro speaker wiring adapters and good grills but hidden of course. Even with the factory head unit, these weren’t bad by any means. Now it’s normal for factory head units that really clip if pushed to high but not bad if left at a reasonable sound level. He likes them and they do well and the price was very reasonable. They’re not as crazy awesome as my RF Punch series in my Bonnie but they do their thing!
