Fitted these the other day, I have always ended up coming back to trusty JBL but they have never been this cheap before!

Running them off an amp however they sound like 6 by 9's in the door with perfect sound quality, and at such a cheap price I was very impressed!

30.00 all in, cant go wrong.

I am running a 10 inch Vibe active sub too, so just front door speakers and the sub and it sounds spot on in the front (fitting matching 6 by 9's later).

I had some more powerful FLI ones before which sounded half as powerful and half the sound quality.

Hmmm interesting, as i was running FLI comps and Fli 10" sub off an Amp, and i thought they sounded spot on... maybe I'm just tone deaf.

Well I am running an FLI amp which is good (4 channel), but it was the 6.5's in the doors that sounded so bad compared to the JBL ones I am now running, I have had previous experiences with other speakers compared with JBL's.

Never know my FLI's may of been buggered, they were just co-axels and it sounded like the treble was dead compared, it could be that the tweeters had blown.

I also DID have Vibe 6 by 9's which also sounded terrible compared to the JBL ones I had previously, I expected better from Vibe as there subs are so good but interestingly I think FLI stuff is also done by Vibe, I could be wrong though.

I have vibe black air 6's in the front which cost me only 40 off ebay. Sound ace i have them wired to vibe amp. Got vibe 6x9 in the rear. Loud and crystal sound for my taste. I listen to metal so dont like sub's as goes too bassy for my liking. And yeah vibe make fli's equipment Smile

Did they fit in the door cards without any modification or spacers needed?

Can't go wrong with JBL for budget gear (They make some decent high end stuff too, i've got the w12gti sub Cool) Reliable too, which is more than can be said for the fli coaxes which were in my mates old car, 1 of the woofers decided to give up the ghost

Just had to take the clips apart for the wires to fit but pretty much a straight swap, no faffing about with the holes or anything fitted perfect.

Anyone know the exact model of these JBLs?

The ebay link just says: Item 350338094762 is no longer available.

same here, just had a look and it's likely this auction no:

350533586181

coming from the 406 coupe back to the 306, the audio is pants in it. could you run these door speakers and just leave the rest as is? the sound is garbage in the 306 really but can't be arsed with a sub etc again

Well, if your headunit isn't specced for a 2 Ohm load there's a good chance it'll give up the ghost eventually Big grin

it's an alpine cda-9833 or something Unsure i think i'll leave them alone. but i'll be ordering the tweeters for the doors and probably end up with another sub/amp combined. i want something small though, any recommendations? i had a vibe CBR something and sold it to sean on here. now i've sold all my 306 parts i've gone and bought another 306 so need to buy everything again

FML comes to mind

That sounds about right for you LOL

You won't be able to hear the speakers once you get the bug again and it ends up spaceframed Thumbs up
