They look great on paper. Im looking for a midrange speaker, and looking to put 4 of these speakers in each of my doors. So 8 total, only $80

Parts-Express.com: (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=299-250)

Would they sound good sealed up crossed at say 100/4k ?

Im running an active setup, just looking to replace some tired PG rsd mids, and for $10 a piece, this would make it an easy change over

Why not just buy them and find out? You're ony out 20$


My only thoughts is the 40W power handling, but they'll probably get pretty loud with that. Peerless makes a good driver, really only 1 way to find out if they'll work well in your application.

$20?? I plan on buying 8, so quite a bit more

Its the many hours of glass and router work that I dont wanna do for nothing

Ws hoping someone had tried them out or has heard about them

they look like stock speakers, but what i would do is buy 1 or 2 and see how u like them/handle power.

Might as well just buy 2 and see how they work. Worst case scenario you wasted 20 dollars if they break. Most likely you can at least use them til you find something better.

They look decent, nothing that wouldn't be terrible. Definitely a step up from stock speakers. Here's what some people are saying about them over at DIYMA:

Peerless SDS 835004 6.5" $10ea! (http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/hot-deals/72533-peerless-sds-835004-6-5-10ea-2.html)

At $10, I'd definitely give them a shot. They probably would sound better sealed, I'd say kicks or something. Worst case scenario, you have yourself some decent mids for a home surround sound system.

Yeah do this. Those speakers have been on sale at that price for a long time. Just get a pair, swap out the rsd's and see how you like them. Use for a week or so though just to see how well you like them

if you have any doubt in them dont waste your money, or do like ppl said, buy some...if you like it buy more, if you don't....sell it...

**** if I really wanted to make sure what I'm buying wasnt crap I'd go with Vifa or Morel(definitely morel) but then again it depends on your budget.

I swear here we go again. " I never heard of it so it must ****" Isn't that the same **** you guys come on here complaining about when you take your internet brand system to a shop and they say the same thing? You guys know tymphany speakers ( peerless, vifa, and tymphany) is a ginormous buildhouse that builds some of the best oem drivers on the panet?

op for what you are wanting they would be perfect.They sound pretty good to me. If the choice is between this mid and the mid from the RSD's. The RSD would be a boat anchor in split second. :)

I can't afford true car audio SQ gear w/ the blingy stuff. only $10 rigid stamped baskets that allow a lot of cooling. they're blank so I can probably add a cdt sticker on them or something.

Eight 6 1/2" huh? Ive done something similar with sixteen 5 1/4" Coustic PowerLogic woofers and it sounded like two good tens, except I've never heard such strong punchy midbass before, rock/metal kick drums were scary loud and clear. I bought all of them from some guy on eBay for $40.

Ill be installing some soon, 4 of the mids, 4 dayton silk domes, and 4 passive infinity ref crossovers, getting about 100w per crossover. They look REAL well built, especially for 10 bucks. They put my RSD mids and tweeters to shame. One thing i dont like is that on the tweeters, the terminals almost touch the magnet assembly. Potentially creating a dead short. They have some type of resin or something on them but if youre not careful with your female connectors you could have problems.
