I hurt a set of Kappa 462cfp's somehow recently and upgraded to these JL XRs out back also. These match my XR 653s great! The voice matching is how it should be now. NEVER mix your mid and tweets! lol

Anyway, these are a component speaker in a 4" size. Very pimp. I had to fabricate a bracket out of 1/4" lucite (sp?) like plexiglass that was 5x7 and mount it to the door panel. Then cut a hole in that so I could mount the speaker in that.

Took me about 6 hrs from start to finish, 2 of them were making that damned bracket. I had forgotten how big of a PITA it was pulling that back seat out. That thing is quite cumbersome operating it yourself.

Lastly, I'd recommend these speakers for sure! Back to rocking out for myself now. :rocking:

I haven't a clue how the Kappas went south. I had them crossed around 120Hz @ 24db/oct too! Only running around 75watts RMS from my JL 300/4.

Maybe I had a bad set or something, they sounded fine for years until about 2 months ago. Hell the may need only a resistor or something.

The sound began to scratch at higher volumes for some reason, down low it was fine.
