They're not bad...I've auditioned a friend's system in his Explorer and they sound quite good. Very up front :)

I've heard that they share a similar sound to the RE RE components. If that's true they would make excellent budget components.

I prefer the RE mids, myself...but then again, they had twice the power going to them when I heard 'em :)

they sound pretty good, pretty smooth but there are just some acoustical notes that they could hit. Just from one install ive heard them from.

type-r tweets were harsh IMO.

hi not to be off topic but the woofers on the SPR 17LS and the 136A differ; the 136A looks better but does it sound better i got the 17LS. sounds okay but I need to deaden later on

The ones used in the Type X's are much better...if the choice to go DIY is available :up2somet:

I'm also interested in the Type R 6.5 components.. Do they sound better than the PG xenons ?

i search and i shall find!!

i'm gonna be getting a set of the SPR-17LS and was curious if the tweeter was able to be flush mounted. also would you recommend these for an active set up? anyone still running these?
