    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.

      high power better than factorys speakers.

      great speakers

    3. Jose

      good speakers just damaged

      Speaker worked out good but they were damaged and looked used.

    4. Shyla Carswell

      Does not fit

      Does not fit behind the seats in a single cab ranger the magnet is to big

    5. Joshua B.

      will definitely buy them again

      best speakers ive ever had in my car.

    6. hansonjon17

      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.

      Great set of speakers for the price

      Speakers sound great over my factory speakers. Just a tad more bass a much crisper. Great speaker for the price. Just a tad small on factory size but they worked in my 98 ford contour svt

    12. 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.

      So much better than stock

      So much better than stock, its insane. I wish I’d gotten 2 more to do the back. This is the FIRST upgrade you should do to your car audio, if anything.

    14. Drake A.

      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.

    16. Alex

      Fair speakers, fairer price

      Bed finitely an upgrade in my 2001 F-350 Super Duty from the stock speakers. Definitely worth the $30 bucks

    17. Veedesign

      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.

      Sound good, don’t forget the wire harness,

      Sounds good for the money. I installed in my 1998 f-150 no issue. Be sure to order Metra 72-5512 Speaker Harness. (Amazon says won’t fit but worked perfect in my truck. Install was easy and I’m an idiot on this stuff.

      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.

    36. Yellow Fin

      Almost No Bass Sound

      If you’re looking for bass out of these speaker save your money and look to another manufacturer. It’s almost non-existent with these speakers.

      Happy Customer

      Sound good, put them in the rear doors of my Ford Expedition.

    38. electronics for fun


      they have a bit of an AM radio sound to them, I am going to try and play with the phasing on them to see if there might be a crossed wire on the stock harness somewhere because the treble is really muddy. if I can fix the problem then I will fix my review but for now I am not that impressed. they sound like the stock speakers just with more bass.

      Perfect fit in my Mazda 3 Style I

      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.

      nice speakers, sound very good

      nice speakers, sound very good. especially since my stock one was blown out.these were used to replace the stock back seat speakers in my 1996 F250 extra cab 4×4.the magnet on one side bottomed out and was hitting the inside of the body. so i put some washers between the speaker and mounting holes to space it out. this was on the passenger side. the driver side bolted right in with no issues.

      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!

      the fit was perfect both front and back

      The Rockford R168X2 Prime 6 x 8’s were purchased to replace failed aftermarket speakers (Polk and Pioneer) of a 1997 Mazda B4000; the fit was perfect both front and back. The sound is crisp and clear. Excellent sound quality for the price. I highly recommend this product.

    I initially bought a budget 8" subwoofer unit from them, and my expectations of its performance were unreasonable. I decided to upgrade to a 12" and they readily accepted my return and promptly prepared the 12" for me. Very happy with my purchase! I Would definitely recommend doing business with the folks at DDF. :D
