Rating: 4/5Worthy replacement for factory speakers
Pros: These are very affordable replacements for the factory front-door speakers in my 23 year old, foreign car which had paper cones. One was blown out so it was time. These speakers have reasonable mounting depth and are quite affordable. At around $22 delivered you get what you get.
Cons: There were no installation instructions included. There was no download available at the Planet Audio website. I got no E-mail reply from Planet Audio concerning th lack of download manuals before I purchased them. The box included a warranty registration form, but I think, based on the above, that it would be a waste of ink to fill it out and a waste of a stamp to send it in.
Because of the lack of tech support and information I could not get a template to verify if these speakers would fit before i purchased them. I did some measuring and used the template from the same size speakers from another manufacturer to help decide.
Other Thoughts: I chose these speakers for their price as well as having tweeters that did not stick out above the speaker as I do not have room for that. For $22.40 shipped I figured that I had little to lose.
My car uses a non-standard mounting pattern for the factory door speakers so I knew going in that I would have to figure out my own mounting. Planet Audio doesn't make that any easier with their lack of support, but since most 5.25" speakers today use standard mounting, if you have sufficient depth then all should be OK if you are the handy type.
The sound? These are not thumpers nor will they deliver crystal-clear, crisp highs nor move a lot of air with the bass. Let's face it. 5.25" speakers are just that- little speakers. And for $20 what do you expect?
What you get is superior sound and clarity to old speakers (particularly old, papr-cone speakers), and likely better power handling. These things do seem to handle 30 watts RMS easily and I was able to turn off the volume limiter in my after-market receiver with these speakers.
