sound good. the woofers were always pretty efficient but the tweeters were paper cones , now they are silk domes. :) i will do a video of them playing in a bit. gotta get some stuff off my work bench to make room for a deck and amp to hook them up to.

got a video uploading now. All i did was unscrew the tweeter stand , snip the tinsil leads from the woofer cone to the tweeter , rip the old tweeter out , got some epoxy and epoxied the polk tweeters to the original tweeters stand , then epoxyied it back onto the pole piece carfully. They sound great now. :) will post vid when its done uploading

No it makes a nice test bed HU , and its fully capable of being installed in a vehicle as long as everything is amped , and myself....i don't hook anything up unless everything is amped in my vehicles.
